I've been tagged by Anabela from Fieldguided!!!!!

What is your favorite quote (for now)?
I like quotes by Coco Chanel who is a true inspiration to me.
"A woman who wears no perfume has no future."
"In order to be irreplaceable one must be different."
"The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud."

What is your favorite tea flavor?
I like jasmin tea but also tea that blossoms.

This is hilarious, my first tag ever!!!!! This is awesome. Thanks Anabela for tagging me.
Anabela has the most wonderful blog I check it out everyday. It inspires me.
Alright, I hope I do this right, since it is my first one. I just copied the question from her own tag.:0)
Here it goes: (sorry about the order, I am still figuring out how to blog properly)

What is your must have of the moment?
Jacques Torres coffee. I can't think of anything else at the present time.

What would you like to get in your hands right now?
Rayon from Cailler, my favorite Swiss chocolate. It is like eating bubbles of chocolate. It melts in your mouth. Simply delicious.

What was your favorite children's book?
I have never been a book reader but I loved the images of the different dresses that Cinderella was wearing. Come to think of it, I used to read in French (French is my mother tongue) les aventures de Martine. Here a picture of me with my grandfather on my father side.

What is on your bedside table?
My flying monkey. I am too old for this but whatever. It is good to be young at heart.

What is your weakness?
Chocolate bunnies at Easter time. Otherwise chocolate in general, preferably Swiss chocolate.

What is your favorite color?
Fushia pink at the present time. I am currently knitting a poncho. Knitting in pink puts me in a good mood.

Current obsession: Vintage. I like this top with the sequins.

This vintage top looks like Missoni to me. Perfect for spring.

What is your current obsession?
I will say vintage. I went recently to a flea market in Brooklyn and found some cool tops. I like the fact that vintage has a story behind it and it is more eco-friendly; also I like to help out whenever I can independent designers, small boutique.

What is your weirdest obsession?
hum! I don't think collecting japanese socks is weird but maybe the fact that in my family everyone expect me is looking forward to eat beef tongue at Christmas; I think this is weird. They order it two weeks in advance to make sure they get some then the tongue cooks for hours. Unfortunately, I had to eat the tongue as a kid, no exception. I thought parents were supposed to make sure kids eat their veggies. Anyway, I am glad to eat whatever I want now.

What do you see outside your window?
Skyscrapers from downtown Manhattan and a little bit of the river. I live in a concrete world.

What animal would you be?
A bird, I think it is awesome to be able to fly, defying gravity. Fly like a bird, being free.

What would you like to learn how to do?
Change a tire, I am totally clueless. Also, how to do a tarte tartin. Just to think of it, I am getting hungry.

What do you want to never happen in life?
Loose a loved ones due to terminal illness.

What is the last thing you bought?
I shouldn't have bought anything but this is what happen when I go into my favorite store called Lyell in New York City
I bought a black top hand knitted in black mohair.

What do you think about the person that tagged you?
Anabela is awesome. I love her blog. She writes so well. It is amazing.

Who do you want to meet in person?
The Dalai Lama. I like the philosophy of the buddhist.

What did you want to be as a child?
A horse rider or a hair dresser.

What did you dream about last night?
I don't remember. I slept like a rock like a usually do.

What is your favorite piece of clothing in your closet?
The last thing I bought which is the vintage pieces. But also my true religion jeans. I love jeans.

What is your plan for tomorrow?
A girlfriend of mine contacted me and asked me if I wanted to work for her just a couple days this week to help a friend of hers with her interior design business. I said yes immediately. I like to help out people. I used to work full time as a resource librarian for an architectural firm but with this economy,they had to let me go. So, this week, I am going to get busy which is good.

If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you go?
Hawaii definitely. I love the exotic flowers and the fact that everyone is so relax there, hang loose as they say.

Which do you prefer, day or night?
I like day time because everyday is a new day to me, full of hope, a new beginning.
