A Lil Sharing Sesh

I have been awarded by The Valentine Journals, which was quite a pleasant surprise! I have to share seven things about myself so here we are:

I used to get upset when I was a child because I knew I could never travel in a time machine and explore different time periods and I still secretly get sulky about it.

One of my favorite songs of all time is The Smiths “There is a Light and It Never Goes Out”. It’s one of those songs that fill my eyes with tears. It’s very bittersweet for me.

I have serious ambitions to someday be an old lady that looks like THIS:
Dazed and Confused Magazine

I spent a summer bartending in London the summer before my senior year of college when I should have been interning or something equally responsible that prepared me for the future. BEST decision ever. I have some of my favorite (yet some really hilariously cringe worthy) memories from that summer!

I love writing and am trying to make a career out of it (HAH!). Also, I’m working on a writing project I’m really excited about which I’m not ready to reveal yet. Eventually, I will though!

I get really flustered about the subject of reading books on digital devices. It completely disregards the romance of reading a book. How can you sacrifice the turning of a page, the smell of the paper, the yellowing curled corner of a page, the ability to make notes or underlining your favorite lines? Ugh! WHYYY would anyone do that!?

If I ever had an incredibly large amount of disposable income, I would love to begin collecting historic costumes and clothing, first editions of my favorite books, original prints by my favorite photographers, etc. My own little personal museum would be something I couldn’t resist!

I'd like to tag these blogs that I really love:

Dear Diary

The Style Daydreamer
A Slowboat to mediocrity
Clothes, Cameras, and Coffee

If they'd like to participate, I'd love to hear what they have to reveal!


  1. i cant agree with you more about the reading devices! its like someone telling you you don't have to buy clothes anymore, you can just download them and project them onto your body.

  2. i love this award to bits. the things one can learn about other people! i share the last three with you. there really is something about a book that makes me very, very happy.

  3. Robin- The world has certainly gone mad!

    Valentine- I'm so glad you tagged me. It is fun to share and it's fun to learn about new people. Also- a book in hand makes me very happy as well!
