Tag - Ten Things I Love.

Ok, so I wasn't tagged to do this but I don't actually care whether I was tagged and after reading Cornflakegirl's one I just couldn't help myself. I love reading these tags so I am just going to do it! 

Obviously I am excluding my friends and family because they are not things! 

One: Grey's Anatomy

I was late to the Grey's Anatomy fan club but I absolutely adore it. My favourite character is Callie. I have been told that I remind people of her which to me is the best compliment EVER because I think she is amazing and very pretty. 

I mean come on. That lady is just smoking. If I looked a teeny bit like her I would be very happy. 

Two: Music

I cannot get through a day without my music. I mean when I get up I need music and if I am alone I need music to fall asleep. I tend to go for female artists for some reason.

My Favourite Artists are in no particular order: 

  • Tori Amos
  • Rumer
  • Adele
  • Tegan and Sara
  • Ani DiFranco
  • Taylor Swift
  • Regina Spektor
  • Melody Gardot
I just can't get by without those ladies in my life.

Tori Amos in the Iveagh Gardens last summer.

Three: My New Bag

I am pretty sure it has to be a knock off but I am absolutely in love.

Four: Painting

I am not very good at it but I love it so much. It relaxes me and makes me happy and that's all that is important. 

Here is one of my paintings: 

Five: Musicals

From "Little Shop of Horrors" to "My Fair Lady" to "Chicago" to "The Phantom of the Opera" nothing makes me happier than a good musical. I much prefer to see these things live in the theatre but I also own over 80 Musicals on DVD. 

This is one of my favourites and quite fitting for now. 

Six: Lists/Notebooks

Nothing makes me feel more in control than a good list. Being organised helps me think clearly and so happier. I am on the hunt for a nice ruled, scented note book. If anyone knows of where I can get one PLEASE let me know! The prettier and girlier the better. This is my current one: 

Seven: Romance/Hugs

What girl doesn't enjoy being wooed? I love being special to someone, being enveloped in someones arms and being important. I am a very tactile person and I really miss being held. So I guess you could say this is more about hugs and physical touch than about romance. I also adore love story films. I am a sucker for chick flicks. This is from one of my favourites "Imagine Me and You"

Eight: My Dogs

Ok, so they are my families and they live in Meath and not with me in Dublin but I adore them. 

This is Yah-Yah:

And this is Ziggy:

Nine: Audrey Hepburn

I have no idea why but I am completely fascinated with her. I love Breakfast at Tiffany's and pretty much anything she is in. I wanna be like her someday.  (Wishful thinking) 

Ten: Collecting Memories

I am terrible for keeping ticket stubs, cards, receipts, train tickets and all sorts of crazy stuff that would mean nothing to anyone else. I am a sentimental at heart! Here is the box I keep these memories in. 

It is from Tk Maxx I got it the other day and it cost me €12.99.

I am not going to tag anyone but I love reading them so if you made it this far through this post and haven't done this tag yet please do and if you want to leave a link to your post below fire away, in case I have missed it.

Lovely post hun! I paint too because it makes me happy, not because I'm talented...I would like to see a post of your paintings though :D

P.S.- Love your dogs!!!

Oh I will have to think about whether to share my paintings or not. Plus I haven't done all that many. That post may have to wait for a while till I am sure I want to but I will think about it. Hope you are having a lovely Easter. xx :D

Brilliant post. I can't believe I left music out of mine, oops. I love, love, love Tori Amos, though I missed her when she played the Iveagh Gardens which annoyed me big time.

Those dogs are soo adorable.

I collect ticket stubs, cards and stuff like that too but I keep them in a shoe box which isn't near as pretty as your box. I must recify that soon.

Oh god honey, She was AMAZING!!!! My friend had to hold me up when she sang Winter. I was a mess. What's your favourite album of hers? I am a crazy CRAZY fan. I met her once. She signed my copy of the Beekeeper.
