TAG TIME: 20 of My Favorite Things

10:05 PM

Time to answer a long overdue tag!

Since I am feeling incredibly lazy from today's bed weather (a.k.a. non-stop rain) and the fact that this IS long overdue, time to sit my lazy bum down and get crackin'! I'm thanking my gorgeous Filipina senorita friend Cheryl of Adventures of a Pinay Neska for this tag, thanks for rockin' Spain with your incredibly sunny and stylish personality and for never forgetting me.:) Here goes:

Eden's 20 Favorite Things

1) COLOR- black. or i'll be kind and say chrome instead. are those even "colors", really?

2) DESSERT- I'm a sucker for anything chocolate. either that, or a bucket of fried chicken. no, that's not right. haha.

3) SMELL- this is hard since my sinuses are always acting up. ugh gross.:) but I do love men's scents that bring on the turn ons, such as Polo Black, Dior Fahrenheit.. 'nuff said!

4) FLOWER-not big on flowers, but i'd go for long-stemmed roses any day. sigh.

5) ANIMAL-had a pet iguana and i LOVED it. love puppies and kitties too, but you know, too messy and i'm really too busy to take care of it.

LOL at this picture

6) MONTH-September. My birthday!

7) BEVERAGE- Smirnoff Ice. For those days where you want to drink 7 bottles of "alcohol" but still wake up very, very sane. Tasty, too.:)

I want it, ALL of it..hehehe..

8) SHOES- i'd give anything to have a pair (or two, or a hundred) of YSL's cage boot. shoe lust to the extreme level.

9) SNACK- a bag of chips and a banana... at least i'm keeping it healthy!
10) SONG/S- currently obsessing with two songs: "Caribbean Queen" by Billy Ocean and "I Just Don't Have The Heart" by Cliff Richard. i know, i'm an old soul.:)

Yeah, go ahead and pop the champagne Sir Cliff because I can't get your cheesy 80's track out of my head!

11) BOOK- anything from Bob Ong really

12) FRUIT- currently grapes.. there's like a bagful of it in the ref now

13) HAIRSTYLE- this one is tricky. i'm getting a MAYJAH hair change in a few days (the boyf will hate me for it, trust), but i'm not so sure yet what to get! I'll keep you posted:)

14) PIECE/S OF CLOTHING- must haves in closet this time: a hot biker jacket, great fitting harem/drop-crotch pants, a perfectly tailored blazer, and a basic white tee/tank


15) STORES TO SHOP- definitely love to ukay! if i DO go for retail, i'd go for Terranova, a little Topshop, and People are People. and SM is really stepping up their game lately!

16) SEASON- since i'm here in the tropics, there isn't much choice isn't it? for dressing up i'm all for rainly season, and for fun and memories.. nothing beats summer!

17) HOBBY-aside from blogging? going thrifting, producing and hosting shows, shoe shopping

18) THINGS TO COLLECT- SHOES. without a doubt. also tons of cheap but worthy bling that you can pile on to jazz up even simple outfits.
Nicholas Kirkwood. The man is a genius.

19) MOVIE-V for Vendetta. Hugo Weaving. need i say more?


20) RESTAURANT- anywhere that serves good fried chicken!! lol. but that's the truth!

In true blogger style I'm going to randomly pick 8 blog friends to now have the responsibility to answer this post.:) (I swear it's random:)) Guys, do answer if you haven't just yet. can't wait to see your answers!
