Today we welcome the woman who got me hooked on perfume reviews and was the one who drew me into Perfumeland. Through reading her blog, The Non-Blonde, I discovered the world of niche although I was only looking for beauty advice. Gaia covers both beauty, and perfume reviews, the occasional fashion event and now and again she can’t hide her love for royalty (no need to either, I love to read about them too!). She is an incredibly prolific and disciplined blogger, definitely one of my role models.
Thank you for letting us a take a closer look at the person behing the blogger today!
A good day starts with… no hairballs on the floor.
I’d never leave the house without… my phone. The Kindle app has saved my sanity on several occasions.
I always feel good when… readers tell me I helped them discover something fabulous.
My favorite thing in the world is… kittens.
The next thing I want to buy is… a new laptop. My current one is about to self-destruct.
The place I always come back to is… Bergdorf Goodman. It’s the mother ship.
My personal style is… very feminine. You’ll always see me in a dress and usually some vintage jewelry or scarves.
My favorite perfume… is not for the faint of heart (or nose).
When I travel, I… want to be comfortable, which causes adventures in extreme packing.
To relax I need… an empty to-do list.
I like to gift people with… pretty things and little luxuries. Stuff I know they want but won’t buy for themselves.
When I have a bad day, I… usually get a headache.
I find my inspiration… everywhere. Walking in the city, reading, browsing old and new fashion photos and books.
Something I would never want to miss… witnessing the first woman elected to the White House.
My last mistake was… testing a face mask I already suspected was up to no good.
In my fridge there is always… cheese. Lots and lots of cheese.
On my nightstand I keep… a notebook, nail polish and a variety of perfume samples.
The perfect weekend starts with… the perfect cup of tea. Everything should start with good tea.
My role model is… Tim Gunn
Something I always want to be asked in questionnaires like this is… either about my scars (I have one from disassembling an Uzi) or to give a fun link so I can share a recipe I just came across.
I love Gaias answers and I love her, but I truly envy her for one simple reason – the cats. I would love to be surrounded by cats all day.
Tim Gunn and a cup of tea, Bergdorf Goodman and a good book, Gaia and I would have a blast, should we meet one day.
Are you a Non-Blonde fan too?
