I’m getting there, I’m getting there. But then again, if this is the person who is asking all questions that noone would feel comfortable answering, I’m sorry. I don’t think they’re all going to be answered anytime soon.
I guess it all depends on what your definition of a ‘good person’ is. I don’t really do anything that would be considered too naughty and I pay my bills on time and I like to think I try hard to be good to others, but who knows. Do you feel like I’m a good person?
I like pretty much everything. I hate people who say that though, so I will list you some songs I like: Bon Iver - ‘Skinny Love’ (Even though it’s kind of played out it still has sentimental value to me), Radiohead - ‘How to Disappear Completely’ and also ‘Amnesiac’. I kind of love Katy Perry’s ‘Teenage Dream’. Buddy Holly’s ‘Everyday’. Songs from musicals, like ‘I know him so well’ from Chess. I like Pheonix. I like that new Drake song, ‘Marvin’s Room’. Even though Conor Oberst can’t really sing, I like Bright Eyes. Oh, and Broken Social Scene for surrreee. Casiotone if I’m feeling really depressed.
I go through phases but I safely say that Crazy Town’s ‘Butterfly’ is one of my most hated songs of all time and that will never change. Ugh.
Bachelor of Art and Design = B of A and D = B.A.D = BAD.
Sorry, wasn’t very clear. Obviously I’m not as funny as I thought I was!
Always! and Never! at the same time.
You’re right. He better get me something good.
Hi, yeap. I went to AUT. I did a Bachelor of Art and Design. (BAD!)
PS i love your question. You are awesome. (Dot com).
Thanks! I tried to be honest. I think it’s generally pretty accurate. I guess I did leave out more of the unflattering personality traits though!
Funny, I thought this was for questions pertaining to me?
I am actually not a big nail polish wearer, but if I had to choose, I would say I like a nude-coloured nail or a classic red.
Thanks. Haha, tricky question! I don’t know if he’d agree with me but here goes:
Always looking for the next best thing. Enthusiastic. Changes his mind a lot/Contradicts himself a lot. Positive. Often distracted, but when you’ve got his attention, it’s like you’re the only one in the world. Charming. Un-self-conscious. Detached. Knows what he wants. Confident. Flirtatious. Sometimes selfish. Complimentary. Tells it like it is but what it is often changes. Energetic. Often in a hurry. Hates being alone. Resourceful. Full on. Super fun. Forgives easily, forgets easily (in both the good and bad ways). Attracts drama. Doesn’t like details. Never Not Working. Unapologetic (in a good way). Persistent. Optimistic. Has an incredible ability to compartmentalize. Full of ideas. Also an oversharer.
Hi! Thank you so much! I think the highs and low(e)s are probably the most fun to write. I haven’t started the contract yet but I hope it goes well too!
Thanks for reading!
No, but sometimes I think so.
It’s not for me. I have a weird thing about asian people colouring their hair but I do think that it suits Rumi.
I think if you can pull it off, go for gold.
The cat knees tights are from Rachel Antonoff’s Fall/Winter 2011 collection. Hopefully she puts them into production!
Dear Anonymous, now I don’t know if you are taking the piss or not.
On the one hand you might be, and to that I say ‘how did YOU become so damn cool?’ and on the other hand you might not be, and to that I say ‘Thanks!’
PS. I love your questions muchly.
Hey, I don’t know if you’re being sarcastic or not, but thanks anyway!
I took the pictures of the girls at the dance. They’re from Rachel Antonoff’s FW2011 presentation at NYFW in February this year. I was lucky enough to be able to go - it was held in gym of this high school I forget the name of, but it was awesome. Alexa Chung was there. Julia Frakes was there. Everyone was there. The Like were playing live (actually I have a video of that, I should really post it) and the whole experience was pretty amazing.
Hi. This is a good question. I don’t think the quality of the show has deteriorated but I do think there is less drama this season (which makes it a little boring) and we’ve got higher expectations than we did in the first season.
I think everyone keeps watching 1. Because they want to know what happens, 2. Because everyone else is watching, and 3. Because deep down, everyone is a judgmental bastard and for some reason, people (including myself) feel like they have the right to be judgmental without feeling too bad about it when it comes to NZNTM.
WHO IS YOUR PICK TO WIN?
Hmm. Good question. Tomorrow is Monday. I suggest you do something you haven’t done before. I suggest a visit to 23 Café for lunch or breakfast (depending on when you wake up) if you haven’t been there. If you have, I would say go to that new café, ‘Theatre’ on K Rd. If you’ve been there also, I would say go to somewhere tried and true: Dizengoff. I also suggest a visit to Agnes Curran for a lamington. Prioritize that. While you’re there, you may as well stop in at Pencil Boutique. And because you’re just around the corner, you should visit Karen Walker.
I don’t actually know if it’s open tomorrow, but Liquid Molten in Mt Eden Village has great fries and tapas type food, and good drinks. And if it’s sunny you can sit in the outdoor courtyard. If it’s not, you can sit by the fire inside.
I’m not sure what you like to do but I heard that ‘Bridesmaids’ was a kind of cheesy but pretty funny movie?
If you want to travel further out of the CBD, go to the Department Store and have a roll and croissant from La Boulange and pretend you’re in Paris.
Do something you were always meant to do, or try something you were always meant to try but never had the time for.
Alternatively, spend all day on the computer asking me questions?
Hi! I wish. If I had cash (as opposed to credit) I would definitely be going! If I were going I would have gone this morning. But if you have cash you should definitely check it out - I’ve heard there’s old Lonely underwear stock for $10-$30!
There’s no harm in trying. I think if you think it’s something you want to do, just do it. There’s no point in blogging for other people because if you don’t enjoy it yourself, then there really is no point, right?
That aside, if you want to stand out you need a niche. With street style, I think if you’ve got an eye for it and you’re able to see what other people may not, that is your trump card. You already feel like you’ve pinpointed the ‘New Zealand Style’ of dressing so it’s a good start. You’ll know what to spot and it’s just a matter of capturing it.
Good luck and have fun!
I’m obsessive. Sensitive. Indecisive. When I care, I really care - too much. Detail oriented. Manipulative sometimes - like all girls (in the best way possible). When I’m funny I’m fricken hilarious. When I’m excitable I’m the best person to be around. When you screw with me, I hold a grudge. I remember everything. Kind to people I know (but I’m not sure about strangers). Pessimistic about myself, optimistic about others. Skeptical/Trust Issues/Whatevs. I like to think I’m honest - I used to be good at lying but now I suck at it. Clever. Asks too many questions. Observant. Loyal. Low self esteem in that typical girl way. Cutting. Generous. Sometimes an oversharer. Like now.
I worry a lot. You know that Kanye song, ‘Paranoid’? (“You worry ‘bout the wrong things, the wrong things…”) I’ve been told that song is about me.
I guess it depends what your definition of ‘comfortable’ is. I have pretty low expenses so I guess I am comfortable in the sense that I can eat and be sheltered, but if I’m being completely honest I guess I would have to say no. It’s gotten to the point where the amount I earn is not enough money for me, hence the new job.
At the moment, I am this crazy insomniac with terrible sleeping hours. So I’ll wake up weird times throughout the night and in the morning and check my emails, write a post if I feel like it, and doze between. I’ll properly wake up between 8 and 10am. I’ll blog (unless I’ve done it at 3am the night before) and I’ll do anything that needs doing - I freelance Graphic Design so when there’s work that needs to be done I do that. If it takes all day and all night, then I just do it. If it takes two hours, same diff. There’s also admin-type stuff to do like invoicing, looking after sweater sales from the online store etc. I eat when I’m hungry, and go to meetings if I have them. In between, I try to keep on top of what’s going on in the blogosphere. I am on the internet for way more hours than any human should be. I email people all day long. People must get sick of me.
This basically goes on all day. Working for yourself is kind of crazy. If it’s 11pm at night it’s the same as if it’s 1pm in the day. Some weeks you can take meetings on a Sunday and be working at 3am, others you can have nothing.
It’s going to change though, I’m starting a part-time contract job next month that will require me to go to an office three days a week, so there’s going to be more structure and I’ll need to fit the blog and freelance stuff around that.
A pen and paper, but most of all, Illustrator!
