About me - Questionnaire

Hi there, boys and girls!

Here I am, about to celebrate my blog's 2 week anniversary! Baby steps, I say, baby steps. I'm so thrilled with this, and thought about sharing with you more of me. That is why I've put up a little questionnaire. If you can think of a question you'd like to ask me, leave it in the comments section, I'd be more than happy to answer!

What do you do? I'm studying architecture. I'm constantly in love with fashion, design, photography, all kind of art and music.
What are you loving right now? Well, cashmere, purple, lipgloss, nailpolish, long cozy sweaters, hot cups of coffee or tea, trenchcoats, fashion editorials.
What inspires you? People on the street, a smile, rain, beautiful paintings and funny faces.
If you could fill your wardrobe with the collection of any fashion designer in the world, who would it be and why? Ok, this is going to be hard, but I'd go for Vivienne Westwood. She's one of my style icons, I love her!
What magazines do you read? Oh, I read magazines constantly. I'm addicted to Elle, Cosmopolitan, but I enjoy going through any mag connected to fashion.
Who are your favourite musicians? I always have on my player at least one album of Patrick Wolf. Also, any indie artists, but I also listen to mainstream bands. Just to mention some of my current picks: New Young Pony Club, ATB, Regina Spektor, Lilly Allen, RHCP, Siobhan Donaghy...
What websites do you read on a regular basis? Too many. Just check the links!
What book are you reading right now? Right now I gave up reading books and settled to magazines, due to my busy schedule. But when I do get to put my hands on a book, I enjoy adventure and mistery.
What TV shows do you enjoy watching? SATC, Gilmore girls and any comedy series, really.
What are your favourite accessories? Bags, shoes, earings and bracelets!
In your opinion what are the powerful brands in the world right now? Great question; those who know best how to treat customers, I won't mention any names, though, it would be unfair.
What's the most interesting place you've visited? Any new place I discover takes the place of that in front of it in my heart and mind. That's why I just can't settle to one. It's an addictive game to play!
What's your favourite city? London, although I haven't visited it! Mostly because of the atmosphere, I suppose. But I wouldn't mind visiting the Big Apple. Send me an airplane ticket and I'm on my way!
What can't you live without? Uh... air I suppose! Wait, there's also fashion!
By the year 2010, you will be what/where? Hanging around and having fun, as I always do. Hopefully I'd have a job I'm in love with and a special soul to share the joy with.
Anything nobody else knows about you? Secrets are well kept treasures, so, you know... I'm sticking to mine!


If you would also like to answer to these questions, feel free to do so in the comments section! I'd love to know more about you also!

Sweet treats,
Daiane


Update (21.6.8):

I've been wanting to state some things for a while, and now seems like the perfect time to do it. If you are keeping close to this blog then you must have noticed it has been taking a new direction. Evolving, changing, hopefully in the best way possible.

I've learned that the most important thing is to create and reinvent yourself continuously. Doing what you like and feel is right, as long as it's not harming or hurting others. Respect for the world around you. Find in every moment a reason to smile. First give your best and the response will be equally thrilling. Inspiration is in everything and in anyone in the surrounding world. Maybe that's why I take so many photos.

I'm all for staying true to what you value the most. Never settle for less than you know you are capable of. Not be afraid. It has taken me a lot of courage to do this, and to put myself out there. I used to worry about what others would say if I do this or that. But not anymore. I understood is so much more important to value what makes you special.

Also, I believe in building your own dreams. Start what you really want to do the very first second you think about it. It will feel better to continue it from that point on. I believe in adjusting the world to fit your dreams, and not the other way around. I hope I got my point through and I'm open-heartedly inviting you to join me on the way this road is going.

I don't regret anything and looking over my first posts I can well appreciate changes. I would not be who I am right now if I had taken another path, and this is something I am grateful everyday for. Love! And because life is all about sweet treats.
