What’s your favourite colour?
In general I go for cool colours, I’m not a fan of yellow/orange or red, but will have them in the garden if they are especially good for wildlife.
What’s your favourite clothing in your wardrobe?
Oooh, this is tough, I don’t think I have a favourite… Is that sad? I’m not big on clothing, my style is generally relaxed/surfer type, kind of, almost! Ha ha.
What’s your dream job?
Wildlife conservationist, but since I don’t have the degree/A-Levels needed it’s very much a dream.
What’s the last thing you bought?
Some biscuits for father’s day tomorrow. Personal – shopping spree in Norwich, handbag, purse, hand cream, books.
What are you listening to right now?
Tv, Eurosport is on… Some sort of athletics somewhere…
What’s your favourite ice-cream?
What’s your favourite fruit?
Not a massive fan of fruit, I usually blend them up to make them go down better. But I do love the flavour of strawberry.
What inspires you?
Life, beauty, wildlife
What’s on the walls of your bedroom?
Some of my own prints bought off deviantART, as well as other member’s prints I’ve bought.
Who is your favourite designer?
Piet Oudolf for gardens… Otherwise I wouldn’t have a clue if you mean clothes.
Do you admire anyone’s style?
Piet Oudolf, I love his ‘natural’ style, I’ve got a long way to go before I’m even close to his but I’ll get there as I gain experience!
Describe your personal style?
As mentioned above, I generally live in surfer type clothes and usually buy from fat face, I also have uninteresting clothes for work. I like modern design and would love to be able to pull off antique styles – rose patterns and such. The house is generally clean colours, so creams, whites with nice Edwardian coloured accent walls of calm greens and such.
What language would you like to learn?
Portuguese because my boyfriend is, only he’s so Portuguese that he’s actually rather poor at speaking it and even worse at teaching it. I can read it fairly well as it’s similar to French in some aspects, but speaking is a whole other story.
What is your favourite quote?
I don’t live by quotes, sorry. Perhaps I should use my little signature on my blog :Doesn’t like reality: – I don’t.
What is your favourite magazine?
I’m not a big reader of magazines or newspapers. But I do like gardens illustrated (plan to subscribe) and used to buy lots of design mags at uni but eventually gave up.
If you had £100 what would you spend it on?
Oooh, it’s a tough choice, I could do with some new clothes, but I think I’d end up spending it on the garden. Some new chairs/table would be good.
What is your current obsession?
Photography, gardening, birds, photography, birds, photography… Get the idea?
What are you wearing today?
Yoga trousers, layered tops – long sleeve with short sleeve tank top on top. Then gardening jumper on top of that as it was a bit dull this morning, but it’s lovely now and quite windy.
What’s for dinner?
Pete bought some Chinese… So looks like I’m having Sweet and Sour Chicken with rice, shame he didn’t get the real stuff from the Chinese supermarket… I guess Marks and Sparks know how to cook it properly……..
What would you eat for your last meal?
What do you think of the person who tagged you?
A great photographer, designer with great style – something I wish I had.
If you could have a house furnished and paid for anywhere in the world what/where would it be?
Hmm, I’d love to live in the Cairngorms, perhaps in my own little castle with turret. Or a lovely Georgian house somewhere.
If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour where would it be?
Lisbon – because I’ve never been.
What are you going to do after this?
What are your favourite movies?
The Departed, Working Girl, Bourne trilogy, and Aliens.
What are your favourite books?
To Kill a Mocking Bird, Pride and Prejudice, The Book Thief, Piet Oudolf books.
Do you collect something?
Not particularly, I seem to be collecting cameras, we used to have a fair few pets but now we’re down to three.
Look around you, look at the small things – there’s just so much more to life beyond money, the television and the computer.
