One of the many pay-offs of blogging has been meeting & making friends with folks that you may not have ever met in the real life. I've had the good fortune of "virtually" meeting some great gals I can now solidly count as real time pals.
One of these, is my dear friend Emily Roche. She blogs Pamja Libri: a Lookbook, and basically turns her style inspirations into fashionable collages via Polyvore. I wish she'd post more photos of herself and her outfits, as she is cute-as-buttons, and write more about her real life adventures. Once I found out that she has an artistic bent, and is a passionate organic gardener, I knew I'd found a friend for life.
The following is an interview with her.
Question: What do you do for a living? What do you do for fun?
At the moment, I'm doing some temp work.
I love plants and animals, but unfortunately I don't currently have a garden, so I've filled the flat with potted plants and shower every random cat with adoration. I love photography and practice at every opportunity. You can see my portfolio here.
Question: Name some blogs that YOU admire, that inspire you.
"I want to be an explorer, a zoologist, a baker, a thinker, and most especially, a contented person."
Question: Tell me 3 trends you like and want to incorporate into your wardrobe.
I love JUMPSUITS. They are quite possibly the comfiest item of clothing ever. HEADWEAR- practical and pretty! I just bought a pink trilby that I adore. Lastly, I really want a vintage creamy LACE dress.
Question: What will you be wearing this summer?
If it's warm, I'll be inseparable from my shorts, silk vests & play-suits. If it is, and I suspect it will be, chilly, there will be more layers involved and I'll have to go shopping for some jewel-toned embellished jackets.
Question: What do you want to be when you grow up?
I can't settle on just one thing, I want to do so much! I want to be an explorer, a zoologist, a baker, a thinker, and most especially, a contented person.
Question: If you were a flower, what kind would you be?
A pink peony. They smell great. When I was little, I was convinced that fairies used peony petals as clothing.
