I adore this image. It's the sweetest thing.
I'm sitting outside with my laptop absolutely loving the sunshine and warmth. I love this weather at the moment. It's warm with a coolish breeze. I'm learning to appreciate the little joys in life. Right now besides my laptop I have a book and two wedding mags to read through and a Moleskine notebook for ideas. I'm almost a fanatical fan of Moleskins now. They are so smooth to write on but they have to be blank pages. I have a weird obsession with needing blank journals/notebooks, but if there are lines I don't mind either =)
Anyway, I was tagged by Lenkalovee. I haven't done one of these for awhile so this should fun!
What is your current obsession?
Definitely wedding blogs, magazines, pretty dresses, pretty interiors and just beautiful images and things in general. They are always on my mind.
Who is the last person you hugged?
Jason. Last night when he took me home after his indoor soccer game. Though it was more of an armless hug cause he hadn't had a shower after the game =p
What's your favourite dinner?
Hmm....this is a hard question. Coming from a filipino family background (though I'm Aussie born) we love to eat. One of my favourite filo dishes to make and eat is called afritada. It's a type of stew. I prefer using beef than chicken. It has a tinge of spice to it and it's soo good! I do love Mexican and Italian food too.
What was the last thing you bought? (to wear)
That would be a long gray cardigan to bring to Bathurst. I was going to say dress for my friend Laura's wedding. But Jason actually bought it for me lol.
What are you listening to right now?
Ahh 'Quest.' It was a piece written for the Moccona coffee ad. I loved the music from that ad I had to look it up and download it. It's so relaxing. Check out the ad on my youtube link. It's only a short song.
and Cinderella is one of my favourite fairytales so this ad is a favourite of mine.
What is your favourite weather?
Days like today. Sunny, warm but cool breeze. Although the clouds are covering up my sun. Sigh go away clouds!
Say something to the person/s who tagged you?
Lenkalovee is a new blog that I've been following and I adore it and her already. She posts beautiful images and thoughts and they are so inspiring to see and read. She's definitely someone I could be friends with in real life =)
Tea or coffee?
I'm more of a tea person, especially green tea. But I do like my coffee as well, especially with Moccona ads =)
What did you want to become as a child?
As a child it varied. A nurse was one of them (apparently for the white shoes my family told me later =s). I also wanted to be a writer. But that dream went away as I got older.
If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour where would you go?
Europe is always a favourite. I would love to go to the USA though to shop at the stores that we don't have here =)
Who do you want to meet in person?
Hmm...blog friends! That would be fantastic to meet the people whose lives I read about on an almost daily basis. Maybe one day....
What is your most challenging goal right now?
Besides planning the wedding (maybe challenges), I would have to say to stop worrying and to keep faith with God with everything that is going on in my life at the moment.
What is your weirdest obsession?
I think I have a couple (that Jason can attest to). Some like my almost unhealthy obsession with stationery or always reading kids books. I think my weirdest would have to be needing to list things down on paper even when I have Mac laptop and iPhone. I use my paper calender and my paper diary and notebooks instead of doing it all electrical.
Why did you start a blog?
I'm not really sure. I liked to read blogs and I had other friends who had them on and off. It seemed like a good way to share creativity, beautiful images and write about life.
What is your blog about? (2-3 elevator pitch)
Ahh my life, creativity, thoughts, pretty things....It's a jumble of different items.
Which blogs are you obsessed with at the moment?
Miss Laura - My friend Laura. She has the most beautiful style. Her wedding photos, her own photography and some wonderful images she finds.
Kiss the Groom - Gorgeous! Wedding and other romantic images.
This is Glamorous - Laura told me about this one. It's beautiful!
Lily-G - I haven't even been to the store yet but her blog is amazing. Lovely interiors and I can't wait to check out the shop.
100 Layercake - I adore the colour boards they do. A wedding blog of course.
Once Wed - Another wedding blog filled with inspiration.
Polka dot bride - An Australian wedding blog. Filled with mood boards and real weddings.
Style Me Pretty - Of course this link is here. I've been obsessed with this blog for ages.
What is your dream job? (realistic or unrealistic)
I guess to have some type of business, mainly stationery, letterpress and other creative items. To be able to do that full-time.
If you could change professions or careers, what would you like to try? (realistically speaking)
To sound nerdy I've been thinking about being a librarian. Even to the point that I might go back and study.
Who is your favourite designer at the moment?
I don't really have a favourite designer, but there are some pretty clothes I wouldn't mind. I do have to say I love Sarahseven.

Yes I'm loving dresses for some reason. I just thought of a designer well brand that I like, Thread. Too many styles I like there to show each one. They are an inspiration for my bridesmaid ideas, so I'm sure to do a post about them some time.
What's your favourite brand of jeans?
I love to wear jeans. But my all time favourite pair are my Sass and Bide. They are the comfiest jeans ever! I've had them for a few years and they are starting to fade but they are still worn a lot! So I guess you could say Sass and Bide. I wouldn't mind trying some Bettina Liano ones. Really I don't mind brand as long as they are comfortable.
One thing that you would snitch out of someone's closest, with no regrets?
Real life friend I would say this dress from Laura =) It's so pretty. From Forevernew, a store I'm quickly starting to like a lot.

Sorry lovely girl...I wouldn't really steal it with no regrets, but if I bought it we would be the same lol.
What piece of designer clothing would you most like to own (new or vintage)
