Stylish Thinking

Hello dollies! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas! Today for me will mostly consist of lounging around doing nothing, procrastinatng while I should be getting on with my dissertation, eyeing up potential beauty and clothing purchases online and cooking some nice healthy dishes to eradicate the guilt of eating so much food yesterday.

But first i'd like to introduce you to the newest member of my shoe collection, Mr. Kurt Geiger. :D

If you've followed me for a while you'd know how much I love these babies, and imagine my shock yesterday morning when my boyfriend handed me over a beautifully wrapped package with a cheeky smile on his face. Upon rippage, I came to find that I had finally been united with the most beauiful shoes in the world. :) I am still in shock to be honest. My boyfriend (like most men) does not understand how important material goods are to women, and these items are not things we want, but things we need. Something 'practical' would be a better present, i've heard him say too often. But it seemed as if the heavens had opened and my prayers had been answered, because yesterday, my boyfriend finally showed me that he understood my obsession and necessity for material goods. :) Hallelujiah!

I got a few other bits and bobs that I will show you all in another post, but I thought I would nab this from the gorgeous Missy Elz because as I have already stated, I am procrastinating. :P

One of my first fashion memories... Aged 6. I stepped out donned in a bright blue wooly jumper with a giant cartoony panda on the front, knitted by my mother. It was quite retro, and since then, my secret love for wooly knits has never faltered.

One of the most treasured items in my wardrobe... My new Kurt Geigers. I don't know how Im ever going to wear them out because Im so afraid of anything happening to them. Sad or wha.

You may not know this but... My arms don't straighten the whole way. Its unnoticable until pointed out, and its hard to explain, but the bone at my elbow is positioned in a particular way that makes my arm look as if its bent when really its straight. Sounds daft I know.

My favourite place in the world is... France. I have something of a love affair with France. Everyone says they adore Paris, and it really is an amazing city, but over the summer I became so attached to the little town of Brantome, in the South West. The culture, the language, the food... Its everything I want in my life. The French know how to eat.

My style icon is... I really don't have one. There are people whose fashion sense I admire and draw inspiration from; Coco Chanel, Zooey Dechanel, Diana Vickers, Ashley Olsen, Fearne Cotton, Dita Von Teese, and Irina Lazareanu to name a few. I have no one person whom I derive inspiration from.

I own so many... Shoes. Its terrible.

It's important for me to... Look good when I go shopping. It sounds shallow but I always feel that the shop assistants judge what I wear. Same goes for makeup.

A moment I will always remember... When I realised my boyfriend was the One. Yes with a capital 'O'!

My trademark is... Im not sure really. Ive been told I change my look a lot. Im a Gemini, what can I say, I get bored easily.

If I could turn back the clock... I would have kept my peroxide blonde hair. It was awesome.

A person who changed my life... The guy who invented Youtube. Because if it weren't for the beauty community I would still probably be my 14 year old self in the head and know absolutely nothing about makeup.

Thanks for reading and i'd be interested to see if anyone else did this little thing :)
