Preppy Mafia Award

Over the weekend I received The Preppy Mafia Award from the brilliant Misery of the "Leftovers From Illumination" blog, (all the way from the second most Catholic country in Europe.) I love her blog, she's an amazing writer, with all the sarcasm and wit one could need and I get most of my worldly news from her. So onto the questionnaire...

1. Who is your style icon?
I'm not sure who to pick, I have so many current faves, but the person who
got me looking at clothing as more than just body coverage was my sister J1. I remember she had the best denim trench-like coat that I coveted as a preteen.
2. Which is your favourite socialite book?
I like biographies but I haven't read any of the socialites' books. My own drama is enough!
3. Favourite party theme?
Anything that I can dress up for...prom, Oscars, Halloween.
4. Go to Halloween costume.
Easy...a zombie. I love zombie movies, and it's weird to say this but I really admire the costume designers, special effects people and makeup artists that combine their talents for these gruesome tales.
5. Extravagance you cannot live without?
Toss up on this's either my computer, for obvious reasons or make up, again for obvious reasons.
6. Living person you admire?
Mom...anyone who can raise 4 girls by herself and still have her sanity wins hands down!
7. Greatest fears?
Ants and spiders...I'm crazy allergic to them.
8. Traits you deplore in yourself?
I'm a junk food junky! I love sweets of most kinds...which means I have to go to the gym and my dentist bills are outrageous! I just can't resist them!
9. Which talent would you most love to have?
Perhaps acting...I always play out scenes of life in my head and how they'd be on the big screen, or in a book. Or be able to write with my left hand...
10. Greatest achievement?
Quitting smoking...I just passed the 5 year mark. Although that being said, probably my most stupid act was to start in the first place...
So I'm passing this onto Erin, The Queen of Hearts, Pearl, and The Fashion Fool and anyone else who'd like to participate...I'm always curious to see how others answer the questions!

Thanks again Misery!

haha you're really awesome :) And about your answers - I don't want to make you feel bad but I will *evil laugh* - I also LOVE sweets but my teeth are somehow unharmed :D And in your previous posts I've noticed you wrote about twitter account - if you have it and you're not posting every 30 seconds then I totally ADMIRE you! Really, if I had twitter account, I'd be twitting about every single breath I take haha. Yes, I'm that lame :) And also I already admire you for quitting smoking - that's pretty big thing (I can see how my parents are struggling with this and they fail every time).

Congrats on the award girl. Quit smoking? I always adore those who pass through this test. I'm glad my dad had wuit when I was still a baby. Those within his age who didnt quit, or even those younger than him, are looking much older than him now. And so he preached them to quit smoking too.

Love reading your answers. a little peek on you. :)

Leona said...

It's great that you admire your mom that much. (:

And I hate ants, too. Really. They creep me out, especially when they're crawling all over my skin.

Hey thanks for the award, great answers I quit smoking in summer 2007 just before they banned smoking in public over hear - my terrible reason for quitting was pretty much because it would annoy me so much not being able to smoke any where, but hey at least I quit. Now I am so horrendous and cannot stand anyone smoking anywhere near me LOL! xx
