I've been tagged!:D

I've been tagged by Iva Y an it is a pleasure to be part of this game:)

The rules:
1. Respond and rework: Answer the questions on your blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your invention, add one more question of your own.

2. Tag 8 other people.
What is the thing that makes you happy? Doing stuff on the house like rearranging the furniture layout, painting furniture found in the garbage, buying stuff like duvet covers, pillows...

Coffee or tea? Coffee, oh yes. But really coffee, not water with a little flavour:P

What’s for dinner? I had fish pudding, something new for me. This was made by a friend of my dad. Quite good actually.

What was the last thing you bought? Hummm... An orange juice yesterday? Does it count? Apart from that I can only remember plain tickets.

What are you listening to right now? "Fever" by Peggy Lee and "Mad About You" by Hooverphonic

What is your favourite piece of clothing in your own wardrobe? My scarfs. I love to use a scarf to spice up an outfit and since last year I've collected a few. Right now my favourite is the one I used yesterday, because it has many colours and looks good with a lot of outfits. And this one was an offer from a friend:)

What is your favourite ice cream flavour? Probably lemon and/or strawberry.

What do you think of the person(s) who tagged you? Since I'm a recent blogger I don't know Iva very well, but she is very sweet, creative and attentive to detail. Probably a little perfectionist, am I right?:P

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go? Actually I'm going to London for the 1st time next week, but apart from London I guess I would love to go to Sydney, Australia

Which language do you want to learn? I have a thing for Italian.

What is your favourite colour? Deep purple.

If you had £100 now, what would you spend it on? I really need an external disc for my laptop. I'm a bit geek sometimes:P Oh and two chairs for my kitchen.

What book are you currently reading? "Memories, Dreams and Reflections# by Carl Jung. I'm taking quite some time to end it, but I do like psychology and psychiatry and I started to be interested in his work because of the "synchronicity" concept.

Describe your personal style? Eclectic and messy (which means I don't have a style at all:P)

What are you going to do after this? Nowhere, I have to install the sims game on a friend's laptop:)

What are your favourite movies? "Closer", "Chocolate", "Dialogue avec mon jardinier" (Conversations with my gardener) and "Le fabuleu destin d'Amélie Poulain". Well, it's hard to pick from the many films I've seen, but I guess these three are strong references for me.

What inspires you? Images, colours, people... If I start doing something creative, normally the inspiration comes naturally trough work, but I really need to start which most of the times just doesn't happen:/

What is your favourite fruit? Cherries, peaches...

Do you collect something? Dust. Does it count?:P

If you could change your name to anything, what would you call yourself? My first name is Cátia and I hate it, that's why I use my second name. So, if I could change it I would eliminate Cátia and turn Sofia into my first name.

How many times do you press the snooze button before you get up? I wake up with my cellphone's alarm clock, so no snooze for me.

What is your favourite smell? Coffee, the grass after being cut, wet land after the rain, my incenses and food when I'm hungry:P

What is your biggest regret? Taking an architecture or graphic design degree instead of the marketing and advertising one (which I didn't finish, gave up on my last year)

edit: I meant the opposite I've written, what I meant was "taking a mkt and adverstising degree instead of architecture or graphic design" Sorry*

What are you most proud of? Right now I'm proud of two things: having the courage to give up my degree and recognize my unhappiness, with the internal and external conflicts such a decision brings and also having the courage to go to London for the 1st time and completely alone. I'm not that adventurous so this is quite big for me.

Cats or dogs? Dogs to love and live with and cats to observe (just observe:P)

What’s your biggest fashion mistake? Can't really remember one but I do not risk that much

What is your guilty TV pleasure? I never feel guilty about music or TV, I mean, to have an opinion about it I also need to watch it right? Focusing on the pleasure I'm a fan of The Mentalist, Everyday Food, Daily Show and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. And oh I'm a zapping girl:P

What did you want to be when you grew up? Many things: a professor, journalist, painter and an actress (this one was always a secret, I'm revealing it here)

How do you see yourself in ten years? Working as an interior designer with a baby inside of me and a kid secretly writing on white sofa pillows while dad is cooking dinner:P

What was the best unconventional gift you have received? A fridge for my attic when everybody wanted money, games, laptops, clothes. I just wanted an fridge and I got it:)
