I'll think about that tomorrow.

Tuesday Number Two! Look! I'm actually staying on top of something! I've got lots and lots to do today, so this one's going to be cranked out quickly.
1. Where do you find inspiration?
Random things and beautiful things. On blogs I admire. In nature, flowers especially. In the people I meet and love. On sites like WeHeartIt where I get lost in photographs. In music and lyrics.
2. Have you got any hobbies or interests you’ve let lapse & wish you would take up again?
I've definitely not done enough yoga lately, I miss that. I've also really let my writing lapse, something I'm trying to get myself into again. I had for the longest time gotten out of my habit of reading every day, but I'm managing to make myself enjoy it again.
3. One tea party. Ten invitations. Who do you invite?
Ohh tough one. Mamma of course. And Hunter so he could experience a Skye tea party firsthand. His mommy and Suz. My great grandmother, Memire. Ma bichette Charlotte would roam around and beg for scraps of cake. Rachel et Ave so we could speak en Francais. And then two other people who were terrific at baking and tea making!
4. Who was your favourite teacher at school & why?
Madame Courtois for teaching me French even when I would rather just say "Je n'ai sais pas!" Mrs. Lewis for inspiring me to be an awesome English teacher. And Mrs. Nathan, my chorus teacher in middle school, for being an inspiration in everything. I couldn't pick just one!
5. Have you ever been in a long-distance relationship?
I am currently in a LDR. They're tough and they make you really think about why you deal with it, but with him, it's totally worth it. We see each other approximately six weeks out of the year, but text and talk and whatnot the rest of the time. It just makes our homecomings even more spectacular.

Amour et papillons et bisous! XOXO.

Welcome to Curious Tuesday!

   Cross my heart and Pinky Promise, I will start writing again. I annoy myself so much when I start something and don't finish it. I have a problem. Seriously. It doesn't matter what it is: laundry, homework, coloring books, journaling, calendars (Oh, especially the planner types!). I always end up stopping before I finish. One of these days I will perfect the art of list making and not procrastinating! Until then my dears, I will have to just take a cattle prod to my little behind and keep myself up to speed with this blog. BUT! That is beside the point.
   The point today is that I am (finally) starting Curious Tuesdays. The idea is from Miss Gala Darling over at www.galadarling.com. She asks five questions every Tuesday and she's been going at it for over a month now. I kept trying to tell myself "Skye, you must participate. You'll L-O-V-E it because you used to love surveys on MySpace and it's just like that. It'll get you writing in your blog again!" Nevertheless, I didn't do it and kept putting it off, but not any more! So here goes, the first installment:

1. If it was your birthday tomorrow, what would be on your wishlist?
Right now it would be that white Ecko Red strappy purse that got away from me. The most tragic thing happened; I was walking to the register to purchase it when a grommet from the side fell off! Now I can't find it anywhere. I would also really like some fabric so I can make myself a Moleskine cover. And honestly, money would be much appreciated at the moment. I can't seem to save fast enough for my trip to Colorado.
2. Do you look after your nails? Do you paint them? If so, do you have a colour that you keep returning to again & again?
I bit my nails up until February of this year. I would paint them but they were always scraggly looking. Now they aren't so terrible, but I don't keep them very long because I'm always breaking them. I paint them all the time though. I always end up with OPI Chapel of Love (a perfect mellow pink), OPI DS Reserve (the perfect in-between color, super shiny and goes with everything), or the hottest pink I can get my hands on.
3. What star sign are you, & do you think it is accurate?
I'm a Pisces fishy and I suppose it's accurate enough. Pisces are emotional, dreamy, and don't like their fish bowls tapped or shaken up. They swim in two different directions, but know how to go with the flow when need be. They're also supposed to be sentimental and shy. Pisces girls are especially feminine and like to be doted upon. Or at least that's what most of the astrological sites will tell you. For the most part, I agree with my Neptune star sign.
4. What is something you have recently learned to appreciate?
The price of gas on a military base! When I'm paying 2.45$ for gas it is such a shock to go off post and have to pay 2.70-something$ somewhere else. Granted, gas is cheaper in Georgia in general, but I love knowing that I'm not getting ripped off every time I fill up my Grand Am's tank.
5. What is your favourite city in the world, & why?
Haliewa, Hawaii, if that even counts as a city. It always seemed like a very magical part of Hawaii, all quaint shops and ocean views. It's one of those places that I think about when I hear someone say paradise, somewhere I would enjoy living. Haliewa Eats aka the best Thai food you may ever have outside of Thailand is another reason why I love the place. Oh now I want to go!

And there you have it! Check in next week for the next installment of Curious Tuesday brought to you by Gala Darling, and feel free to answer the questions in the comments or steal them for your own blog. XOXO.
