Raison d'etre

Images via Pinterest

A while back I was lucky enough to have a little sunshine bestowed upon me by the gorgeous Claudia of The Paris Apartment in the form of an award known as the sunshine award. I adore Claudia's blog & all things Parisian, so do pay her a visit, you won't regret it!

Instead of answering the same questions about myself I decided to share more about moi in the form of quotes. I believe all the quotes above will let you into my world, my looking glass...

Pardon my French ~ yes, at times I truly do have a potty mouth.
Mermaids ~ I have no interest in or perhaps just feel sorry for those who lead a shallow existence.
Dusty Corners of My Mixed Up Soul ~ I found that person when I was just 14 and we never let each other go.
Hermia ~ I played her once. A favourite character of mine. I am a tiny person but on the inside I am most definitely fierce. This quote sums me up to a T.
Dita ~ I adore this quote. I won't say I never have bad days, but I am very comfortable in my own skin & I know that I don't need to be everything to everyone. I'm the ripest, juiciest peach for some!
Oscar ~ I played Lady Windermere once & I have a special love of this play. I love all of Oscar Wilde's plays. I'm a very positive person & think of this quote often.
Fairytales ~ I truly believe no one is too old for them.
Adventurers & Dreamers ~ I am both.
Coffee ~ my day never really starts until I've had one.
