Third, I've been tagged by sweet Paris in Luella Land.

5 things in my Bag
- A pen with black ink (Yes, I always prefer black ink to blue one)
- A large purse full of receipts (even from months ago)

- Tinted lip care (even though it may not always work well)
- A huge bunch of keys (half of the time, they are M.I.A.)
- A secret love letter (even not known by Boyfriend) ------ OK, that's a joke! Truth: An Ordinary Dairy!

5 things in my wallet
- Full of old receipts
(even from 6 months ago)
- A couple of credit and reward cards
- Lots of changes (which I'm so not good at...)
- Different I.D. cards (I look like I'm Wanted! ----- not fond of them)
- Photos of my loved ones (They make me smile....)

5 favourite things in my room
- my wardrobe (Even though I have not got the chance to wear everything, I totally love it!)
- My computers (They are my life! If they broke down, I broke down!)
- several bottles of my beloved vintage champaign (Even though a couple of glasses can switch me off completely!)
- My make-up table with lots of pretty old perfumes (Actually, I only use 1 perfume for years)
- And my bed, of course! (A soft yet firm bed is very important!)

5 things I want to do right now
OK, now it's almost 12am and I feel a bit tired, but I'm not going to sleep now :)

- Drive out and about
- Then get some Fish and Chips and a large fruity milk shake (Instead, I've got some ice cream out of my fridge!)
- Keep driving... put the radio on... drive around London Bridge (Only because not everywhere has light now... Sorry)
- Actually, I want to type on my bed.... I'm bit tired!
- Oh, that's not before a BIG cuddle from my boyfriend... maybe a kiss...

5 things I'm currently into
- Learning French (I know I'm bit useless in learning a new language, but that language is gorgeous and I love
Audrey Tautou!)
- Learning how to make sushi
- Going to various shows (
from cabaret to art exhibitions)
- Wine tasting
- Reading all sorts of magazines

5 impressions of Paris who tagged me
- She's an extremely sweet girl with a unique eye for fashion and style
- She's very romantic and creates fresh and uplifting art pieces
- She's into music... possible British bands
- She cannot wait to start her Uni in London
- She loves her boyfriend a lot!

I guess many of you I've known already done this tag but please feel free to tag yourself! This is such a fun tag!

Last, I also have been tagged by the very sweet We Wear Things, so here are the rules:

1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123.
3. Find the 5th sentence.
4. Post the next 3 sentences.
5. Tag 5 people and acknowledge who tagged you.

I have Old Curiosity Shop by Charles Dickens, so I have

"We never can be here."
"No, we never can again --- never again --- that's truly said," rejoined the old man. "Let us steal away to-morrow morning - early and softly, that we may not be seen or heard --- and leave no trace or track from them to follow by.

lucy said...

Truly great post!

Songy said...

Learning to speak French.. that's romantic. It's difficult yes. However, according to experts you only need to spend set amount of time every day for three to six months to become fluent. Then you really need to visit France (well it's not hard of your though is it? close enough for your. for me it is rather difficult living in Australia) to speak with the French. It's fun speaking other languages. Really anyone can do it.

I love sushi. Share your tips with us. I used to make it a lot but not any more. Eating is one thing but some sushi dishes look absolutely fabulous. Are you learning it for eating or because they are pretty? I wouldn't laugh at you either way. :) kidding.

bisous Songy

How cool to see how you've answered all these questions! It's so impressive that you're making the effort to learn French -- I know SO many people who've said they "plan" to learn a language but never do it!
