Pleasant Hill, CA
|Me in a nutshell||
Hmm, I asked my boyfriend just now to put me in a nutshell, & he answered, “small, blonde, weird, & joyful”. thanks? :)
art, fashion, pie, San Francisco, shopping, handmade things, hard to find & unusual fragrances, natural body products, creative pursuits- such as learning to paint!
Tell Us More
|I NEVER go without these||
Scarves (lightweight scarves in the summer, heavier in winter), & often handmade jewelry (especially earrings or necklaces). And I always wear fragrance- but not your standard department store perfumes… often unusual, hard to find fragrances, all natural fragrances, & handmade perfumes on etsy.
|Biggest splurge or steal in my closet||
I’m always one to splurge on the handbag & the “every-day” shoes, cause those get worn almost daily, & so I want them to be perfect! Then I shop clearance for my clothing.
|do-gooder: Why I am one||
Oh how I wish I did more, I really do. But I try to be aware of the needs & emotional state of my friends & family, & always ready to lift their spirits when needed by letting them know that they’re not alone. Sometimes just by listening with compassion.
|read, watch, listen:Favorite books||
I love “Daphnis and Chloe”, an ancient Greek love story by the poet Longus. Its present translation has been illustrated by my favorite artist, Marc Chagall. Also always liked “Even Cowgirls get the Blues” by Tom Robbins
I haven’t listened to the radio in the last year, oh wow I don’t know what I like lately, lol. But I usually love alternative/rock.
|Favorite TV shows||
Mad Men, True Blood, Weeds
At the top of my list is Breakfast at Tiffany’s followed closely by other classics like Casablanca & All About Eve.
|home & living:My favorite room in my house||
The living room for now, though it’s a work in progress. My bedroom is too hopeless, overflowing with all my stuff that won’t fit in the closet. I’m told I have too many clothes & shoes, but i know that’s just nonsense….
|potluck:Five people (dead or alive) I’d invite to a party||
My boyfriend, Audrey Hepburn, The Brownings: Robert & Elizabeth Barrett, Aethelflaed
|beauty & fashion: I can skip these||
I can skip ruffle & frill overkill, as well as obnoxious logos.
|eat, drink, be merry: Tell us your go to meal||
I would like to say chocolate peanut butter cup ice cream, two bowls, every meal. But I actually follow a low carb, high protein, low fat diet! But I get to splurge on the ice cream now & then, to reward myself for being such a good girl!
|If I were an 80’s movie/tv/music star, I’d be||
I have no idea… Hmm, I guess I would have to say Debbie Gibson- but ONLY because I was constantly told in the 80’s that I looked like her! I’d rather say Chrissy Hinde or something, but who are we kidding, I’m not that cool, who is?
