I just got Tagged.

I'm not really sure how these things work...but I'll give it a try all the same.

these are the rules- respond and rework! answer the questions on your blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your own invention, add one more question of your own. tag five other un-tagged people.

what is your current obsession? getting my event/wedding design business up and running
what are you wearing now? my PJs, gray track pants black top and pink slippers
do you nap a lot? I wish!
what is on your desk? Lots and lots of research to go through for my thesis, a babushka doll a friend brought back from turkey, a photo of my fiance sitting on the beach where he proposed and my visual diary where I keep track of all my wondering thoughts.
what would you like to learn to do? I would love to learn how to run a small business, flower arranging, know the ins and outs of graphic design and styles of printing and also to learn how to fly a kite.
what’s for dinner? I am off to one of my friends house for dinner, I'm bringing cheeses with figs and honey and maybe some lovely prosciutto.
what was the last thing you bought? One of the best pizzas I have ever tasted from Messa Lunga on Gouger Street.
what is your favorite weather? Well on one hand it is hot humid tropical, lie by the pool weather and on the polar opposite I also love to snowboard so I love a freezing day full of fresh powdery snow.
what is your idea of a relaxing day? When it is raining Jarrod and I just cuddle up on the couch with the duna and watch all movies and eat take away. When it is sunny we love to go and walk on the beach where he proposed and chase the sea gulls and eat sushi.
what is your most challenging goal right now? to actually stay focused get my thesis done and to get 7000 words out in 30 days. Obviously I'm not doing a good job staying focused because I'm blogging!
if you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where do you want it to be? In the hills in the South of France or A little cottage in the English countryside with a gorgeous garden
what would you like to have in your hands right now? An ice cold class of diet coke with a piece of lime...

  1. Beautiful blog! So inspirational! May i ask what degree you have done to be a event/wedding designer?

  2. I did interior architecture which is just interior design but we got to learn about interior construction as well. That is the design side of things, I will be hopefully doing a small wedding planning course in August(its like a one day thing) which gives you advice on planning and also running a small business. I will also look at doing a night course in small businesses so I know the ins and outs of the technical side.

  3. Thank you so much! I have been considering doing an interior architecture course but am still unsure. I don't know anyone that has done it and wasn't sure what it would be like. Especially in terms of jobs at the end of it all, i'm sure it is very competitive. Wedding/event designing would be such an amazing job. Best of luck with your business!

  4. thank you. My course here was great, i sing all its praises. It was very practical but did a good amount of theory to keep your brain working. Interior design/architecture really opens up a lot of doors to a range of creative practices.

  5. ohhh. me and pat r sooo gonna do this!thanks for tagging us!
