Me, Me, Me

January 25th, 2011 by Selise
 This is a jar of things that I like. It sits on my desk.

Approximately a hundred years ago, the ever-so-talented Kat of Kat’s Creations tagged me in a Q&A post. Given that it’s hot out and I have the day off I am wearing clothes that essentially don’t touch me. And while I’m tres comfortable, I’m not necessarily winning any style awards. Unless it’s the Award for Comfortable Clothes That Don’t Touch You. In which case, I’d like to thank the academy.

I’ll just get on with it shall I?

Why did you create your blog?
Ahh well, I’d been lurking and wanting to start my own style blog for oh, a good 2 years before I actually did it. I started with Style Rookie and was completely obsessed. I’ve always loved clothes and fashion and pushing the boundaries so I thought I’d start documenting it every day. It was pretty scary at first. Not the dressing but the posting. But now it feels like an old friend.

What kind of blogs do you follow?
Mostly style blogs really but I probably spend an equal amount of time looking at recipes and food blogs. As well as living vicariously through sites like The Selby and The Coveted

Favourite make up brand?
Hmmm, that’s tough because I have a lot of make up. I actually went to beauty school and am a qualified make up artist, though I rarely practise. MAC probably. Nars too. 

Favourite clothing brand?
Come now, that’s like choosing my favourite John Hughes film! (OK, the Breakfast Club). I don’t have a favourite brand really. I shop everywhere. I like to think of myself as an “equal opportunity shopper”. Myer is usually my first stop just because they have so many different labels and really good sales. But it depends what I’m after really. So I think the answer is…pass.

Your indispensable make up product?
Oh man. The Mascara in Curling by Kevyn Aucoin. I could go on for days about how incredible it is and trust me, I have. Just ask anyone within a 5 metre radius of me at any given time. Seriously I’m gonna go ahead and say two words here. Are you ready? Life. Changing. No kidding. You MUST try it. I love it so hard that it’s almost weird. Almost.

Your favourite colour?
See I always think my favourite colour is blue but I don’t really buy many blue things. Clothing wise it would have to be army green. All the way. If it’s available in that colour I will buy it in that colour. Or black. One of my all time favourite looks is a black bra or black lingerie under something white. 

Your perfume?
My wonderful husband bought me Flowerbomb for Christmas and I am addicted! I wear it pretty much every day. Even if I don’t leave the house. Before that it was Viva La Juicy. I’ve also got Lola by Marc Jacobs and Rose by Bvlgari in the mix. Come to think of it, I’m actually wearing the Rose one today.

Your favourite film?
Ah, we may have covered that earlier. The Breakfast Club. Hands down.

What country would you like to visit and why?
There are so many. I’ve wanted to visit Ireland for as long as I can remember. Because…it seems awesome? And Mexico. I can’t believe I lived in California for 6 years and never got to Mexico. I really, really want to go for the Day of the Dead festival.

Make the last question and answer to yourself
OK, why is a mouse when it spins? I still don’t know. One of these days I’ll figure it out.

    Thanks for playing along! Oh and enjoy your trip to Melbourne. I have only been there once and did not explore the vintage stores. Hopefully next time I get a chance to go there. I have only just started buying vintage. I own only 3 dresses but I am totally addicted. I want to wear vintage everyday!

    I've never seen The Breakfast Club. I've never seen a lot of cult 90s movies that I'm dying to see. I must make a list. It's decided.

    Oh and my favourite colour is blue too! But I totally wear and buy everything blue I can get my hands on :p

    I had no idea you were a makeup maniac, womang. We'll have to have a girly night soon and you can furnish me with tips. God knows this face could use your help!
