Inspiro-Girls - Miss Vintage Vixen

Miss Vintage Vixen is my favourite blogger ever. Fact.

Miss Vintage Vixen is witty, glamorous, kooky, fun, and gosh-darn fabulous! Plus, she calls everyone cupcakes. That officially seals the deal for me.

Come say hi, you'll fall in love, I promise!

*Describe yourself in five words.

Comeback-clever, SHORT, nerdy, naive and spunky. {Here, watch me cheat, I'll add another one: I'm famous for being emotional.}

*Your blog is fabulous! What's it about and what inspired you to set it up?

Well, the truth sets you free {apparently}, so I'll be truthful: I was so incredibly mad when I was on vacation with my family. It was two in the morning, and everyone in the cramped hotel room was asleep, but I was awake, my laptop was on, and I was watching old reruns of The Nanny on TV. I was mad at my family because I felt they didn't understand me, or didn't respect what I wanted to do with my life, so I decided to write about it in a blog post of a blog I already had. But I knew that many people I knew already read that blog, so I made up a new one. I talked about how I was a great debater, how I never dropped a subject, and I was mad at the world, and my parents. Slowly, it became a place where I ranted and discovered new addictions, like my love for vintage, photography, and apparently now, music.

{Not that I'm a musician or anything. Just listen to me sing - I sound like a dying orca whale.}

*If you could return to a specific era, what would it be and why?

If I could return to 6th grade, the era when I was first in love, I would, but this time, I would most definitely change up my attitude. Ever hear the phrase 'Play hard to get'? I took that advice to the extreme... almost to the point where I denied to even speak to the guy. Only when he spoke to me was I nice. I felt like if I laughed louder, danced in the halls, and was not afraid to do what I felt like doing, I could have maybe, just maybe, impressed everyone else. I wanted everyone to know that there WAS a person in the planet who was intelligent, and crazy, and klutzy, and studious, and rhythmic, and that was me.

*What do you love most about being a girl in the world?

The thing that I love most about being a girl... well, I love a lot of things about being a girl over a boy, but the thing that I love most about being a girl over a boy is that I can cry whenever I want without being called 'gay' or sissy. I like to cry... a lot. I like to watch movies to cry, I cry because of a depressing song I heard on the radio, I cry because I hear people yelling at each other, I cry because someone who was probably a huge idiot on the Hollywood scene died, I cry because I won an award, I cry because the world is going to end someday, I cry, and nobody seems to mind. Girls understand.

*What five songs would be essential to a Miss VV soundtrack?

Yes, what an excellent question? Okay, if there were a soundtrack to my life, I want it to be upbeat... even though there are many other songs that I love that are slow and depressing, like Coldplay. But the top five songs that I would most definitely pick for a soundtrack of me, they would be:

  • Crazy In Love - Beyonce {Why? Oh, that song has been my song since it first came out in 2003!}
  • The Way I Am - Ingrid Michaelson {Why? Sweetest song ever written, and it's so true, as well!}
  • Flashing Lights - Kanye West {The one song in Miss Vintage Vixen history that was SO GOOD, that I replayed it 30 times on my iPod, and danced to it while driving in the car, on my way up to Big Bear}
  • Nothing On You - B.O.B.
  • Smooth Criminal - Michael Jackson {The one song on the planet that I will never ever ever ever ever ever ever get tired of.}

*What's your motto for life?

You know, it's kind of creepy how coincidental this is... I was *just* talking with my best friend over Facebook, and she asked me what my motto in life was, and I told her I didn't have one. And right after that I got a post-it note and wrote on it: "Find a motto for life". And it's hanging right on my computer screen, as I write this.

*Quick-fire round! Your favourite... Book/Food/Movie/Shop/Website/City/Activity?

  • BOOK! Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban {or Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows}
  • FOOD! Lasagna {I figured chocolate didn't count as a solid food}
  • MOVIE! The Perfect Man
  • SHOP! Charlotte Russe
  • CITY! Chula Vista, baberz. Haven't been to New York City yet, so I can't differ!
  • ACTIVITY! Reading... most definitely. And I'm not even being cliche.

*The colour pink, discuss.

Oh, the colour pink. What a controversial colour. Well, the colour pink for me is not something I count as symbolic {you know, for girls}, but mostly, just a style preference. My cousin {hmm, you just gave me the idea to write a post about her} is six years-old, and pink is her life. I think it's just because she's a girl, and she thinks she needs pink to prove the point she's a girl, and girls have to be girly. Pink for me is not what I need... only when the outfit calls for it!

*Who or what makes you jump-in-the-air happy?

WHO: Rupert Grint! {And David Tennant... *blushes*}

WHAT: People telling me they like something about me. Yeah, really...

Wow, I just realized that this was here... I need to remember to read my comments more often :(

Weirdly enough, I didn't find this in my dashboard!

I'm blogging about this right now!

Thank you!
