I've got a tag!

Jun 2, 2009

I've got a tag to answer from the lovely Cheryl of the blog Adventures of a Pinay Neska. It's so fun being tagged as it gets me really thinking of some answers. Some favorites change over the course of years and some really become unchanged. For example, my new favorites are these cameos. They are classic and elegant pieces and I love the melange of colors available.

Now, these two are my favorites amongst them. The lady with the red background is the first i'll mount on a backing and design first. The lovely reddish orange color got to me and made the carving stand out. The blue cameo on the right is also an obvious favorite because I adore dogs. Although I don't have a Yorkie, the lovely depiction got to me.

Speaking of favorites, the tag is all about 20 of it. It's been fun thinking of answers for this one because I really LIKE a lot of things in multiples LOL.

20 0f my favorite things:

1. Color: White and Red

2. Dessert: Leche flan or Tocino el cielo or creme brulee. In short, these three are the same thing: custard flan!

3. Smell: Roses

4. Flower: Lilies, because they are the first flowers I have ever received from the BF

5. Animal- Dogs of course, namely Dobie, Corky, Sandy, Nami, Tyrone, Ponzie and Tutti

Dobie in his minni mouse costume. He looks so perplexed, poor baby.

6. Month - December. I love the smell of pine trees, gifts, christmas dinner feast and the generally happy mood of people.

7. Beverage - Water

8. Pair/s of shoes- Heels and ballerina flats. They must co-exist with each other. Must.

9. Snack- Pizza... Just writing the word makes me conjure slices of its goodness!

10. Song- Mamma Mia Soundtrack

11. Book- The art of seduction and the art of war by robert greene

12. Fruit- Honey dew melon and mangoes :D

13. Hairstyle- softly curled hair with a headband

14. Piece/s of clothing-Dresses!

These two were my picks for the graduation day. I really wanted to wear the white dress because of its dramatic drape at the back (Stella McCartney) and I bought it eons ago especially for the occasion. I ended up wearing this LBD that I wore to my first college grad for the pictorials.

15. Store/s to clothes shop- Thrift stores, Adora for gorgeous pieces (Tyler, Missoni, D&G) and Bench for their bamboo silk t shirts!

16. Season- forever SUMMER

17. Hobby- Cooking, Surfing, Body Boarding

Some home made pesto that I have whipped up over the weekend :D

18. Things to collect- Sea glass, Cameos, Perfumes, Pucci dresses

19. Movie- Breakfast at Tiffany's. Makes me cry at the end especially when Holly tossed Cat on the alley.

20. Restaurant- currently Mimmo's Italian restaurant.
