All about me

Just in case you're wondering who I am and what I'm like, here's a few little nugget-y pieces of information about me..

>My name is Tara, which I like because it means star, or hill.

>I live in Somerset, and even though it is supposedly a warm county, it is never warm enough. I also do not have a farmer-ish voice.

>I'm a pint-sized 5'0, so just try telling me a height-based joke I haven't heard.

>I'm a little bit of a perfectionist in everything I do, meaning I am never ever happy with anything I produce. Hence the reason I took a ridiculous amount of subjects (five) and always leave homework to the last night, so I can't agonise over it too much.

>I am studying French & Spanish, and have a tendency to use foreign words when I write/talk. I'm hoping this is a sign I'm getting multilingual, not just losing it.

>I'm vegetarian, and intensely opposed to any animal cruelty - I also refuse to wear fur, leather or any other animal skin.

>My obsession with fashion has no known origins, and no bounds. For as long as I can remember I have loved fashion and shopping - I used to go to town every Saturday with my lovely Mum, and still go when I can with her.. family tradition!

>The feeling of spending money is a little intoxicating to me, as are new clothes.

>Throwing things away is not something I go for. Every time I bite the bullet and clear out my wardrobe, the items I get rid of come back into fashion within a few months.

>I want to be a fashion journalist, so this blog is my way of seeing what kinds of things I like to write about, whether I am actually any good at the whole fashion-writing-shebang and simply indulging my huge fashion obsession.

Love and kisses, Tara xox
