A bit of a tagger's adventure

So my lovely friend Britney, creator of Lemonwood and Honey has tagged me, along with 11 other bloggers in this post here. The challenge, or adventure is to post 11 random facts about yourself and then answer 11 questions the challenger has set out for you! Fun stuff. You're also meant to tag 11 people in this post with new questions, but because I'm still relatively new to Blogger I thought I'd post 11 questions and you can choose to do them if you wish! If you do decide to please post the link underneath this post so I can see. xx

Britney's Questions that I answered

  1. What song are you currently loving? At the moment it's a song called 'What's It All For' by Laura Michelle Kelly, which someone lovely sent me to listen to.
  2. If you could go back in time and you get to go as many times as you wish, where would you go? Oh goodness, there's SO many Broadway shows I would love to go back in time to watch, as well as eras. In terms of shows I'd go see the Original Australian Tour of 'Phantom of the Opera', Audrey Hepburn when she was in 'Gigi', 'Beauty and the Beast' in Australia, 'Metro Street'. In terms of eras I'd go back to the 50's and 60's. Although perhaps in England or somewhere, because I don't think anything eventful was happening at the time where I'm from. 
  3. If you got the chance to run away with a fictional character who would it be? (can be from books, tv, musical theatre, plain theatre, film, anywhere). Edina Monsoon from 'Absolutely Fabulous'.
  4. What would you do and where would you go with that fictional character? We'd talk over a bottle of champagne, bitch about celebrities, go shopping. Most likely we'd visit her PR Office and Patsy!, go shopping on Oxford Street and for a nice lunch in some A-List restaurant. Need to be seen darlings.
  5. Who is your current muse? Verity Hunt-Ballard, next week's Monday Muse actually. 
  6. A word. Any word. Fabulous.
  7. Did you have any imaginary friends? If so who? I sure did, when I was growing up I always wanted a sister so my imaginary friend was called Harriet. That's embarrassing to admit, gosh Britney!
  8. If you were hosting a dinner party (or a party of your choice) at home what would your house look like ten minutes before people arrive? Organised chaos! No doubt final touches would be added to the table setting, some candles or something nicely scented would be in the room and perhaps music would be playing. 
  9. Do you get distracted by shiny or glittery things? Very much so. If I see sparkly accessories or clothes for instance I will gravitate towards them. Sparkles equal happiness. 
  10. What animal would best describe your personality? Or a combo of animal maybe, like a  rhottow (a rhino, otter and a cow!) or a sharogaffe (a shark, a dog and a giraffe!). Probably something quiet and relaxed, like a Cat. 
  11. What is the most important dream you want to turn into a reality this year? (or start bringing it into reality?) This is where my list of "12 Dreams for 2012" comes in handy. One dream I would really love to turn into reality is attendance at Fashion Events in New Zealand like the NZFF or NZFW. I'd like to hopefully take photos and do reviews of them. It's something I've wanted to do for a long time but never felt confident enough to undertake but this year I would really love to get involved. 

Now, 11 completely random things about me.

  1. I love reading magazines, in particular Fashion.
  2. Musical Theatre is my lifelong love, ever since I was introduced to Julie Andrews in 'Mary Poppins' and 'The Sound of Music' as a child.
  3. Melbourne is my favourite city in the world.
  4. Originally I was able to write with both my left and right hands but in Primary School I was trained to write with just one. So now, I am right handed!
  5. Despite being an incredibly clutzy person I only have one scar on my body, from a drip that was put into my hand after an operation.
  6. Sometimes overseas, or even within New Zealand I'll be asked if I'm Australian, so I tell people that I am.
  7. Earlier this week I purchased this daily journal. Every day I've been writing about what I've been grateful for from that day. 
  8. Another of my '12 Dreams for 2012' is to learn how to do Fashion Illustration (properly!).
  9. Harry Potter was my hero once upon a time and I'm not ashamed to admit that I queued in line with fans each day a new book came out and was lucky enough to attend several of the Premiere screenings.
  10. Words of Wisdom are always inspiring me. At the moment one of my favourite sentiments is "The creative adult is the child who survived."
  11. I collect magazine clippings, cute postcards and a random assortment of things which I collect on my travels and anywhere I can find them.

And lastly, 11 questions for you dear reader!

  1. If there was one Fashion trend you could revive what would it be?
  2. Do you have a favourite recipe?
  3. Which book or author would you recommend to anybody (Friend, Stranger, Family etc)?
  4. What is your most vivid childhood memory?
  5. If you could do anything you wanted for a day, with no time restrictions, financial woes etc, what would you do, where would you go and who would you see?
  6. Pet peeve?
  7. One thing you've learnt this week?
  8. Who is someone you admire and why?
  9. What is your dream?
  10. Have you ever purchased anything online? If yes, what is the best thing you've ever bought online?
  11. What was the last movie you watched and would you recommend it to others?


  1. mmmm ... i love that notebook! I've been doing something similar where every night I write down what I am thankful. I'm finding it really good. I think its going to be a great year!
    I think you should definitely do those reviews at fashion week. You would be so good at it! Believe me I've read your stuff and its great! And I totally love who you'd run away with! I'm pretty sure you'd have a fabulous time with her.
    Do do your dreams! It'd make this year amazing!

    1. Thanks, it's a great thing to do and will be nice to look back on at the end of the year! Aww thank you B, you're much too kind.
