My answers to the questions from Friendly Green Frog

My answers to the questions from Liis

10. Give praise to the person you idolize! all people who dares to be real to themselves and deal with reality, -because that takes bravery.
11. Having fun? rock n’roll!!!

 

My answers to the questions from Fast Times in Alaska

1. Where are you living? Is that your dream location? I am living in Umea, North of Sweden (which is the capital of Culture this year). Dream location hmmm? well its got good things, but my dream location does not exist as ideally I would like to combine this place with London and Barcelona; London for the art scene and all opportunities and Barcelona for the good weather and great food, and this place because my children can have a good upbringing and the clean, beautiful nature. 

2. What is your dream adventure? to travel the world on a boat being a pirate.

3.  Your favourite quote?   “action speaks louder than words”

4. Your most life changing moment?  becoming a mum

5. What changed after said moment?  how I view things and position myself in relation to that

6.  If you could be any animal what would it be and why? a black panther because they are fast and independent

7.  What is your perfect career? Not job, but career? creative sector

8. If you could meet any public figure, be it political, religious or celebrity, who would it be and why?  Banksy, because he is using art in a very clever way with interesting and thought provoking concepts, and he does not claim the fame for it by being anonymous. (and I think that deserves some respect, as a lot of people let the fame get to their head and that in itself becomes important.)

9. What is your favourite topic to write about? ecological designs

10.  Big dogs or little dogs? big dogs

11. Why did you start blogging? to communicate ideas and show my creations which hopefully can inspire others to think about how we live and consume.

  1. Great answers 🙂 Also, not to self-praise or anything but back home (in Estonia that is) I used to go to this high-school which had everything to do with Sweden. We studied the language for three years, we picked a King/Queen from amongst the students, we celebrated Lucia-dag and did student-exchange with Sweden. So, I have learned Swedish and even passed exams in it, but it’s a bit rusty now as it’s been years since I last practiced it 🙂

    1. oh that is very interesting, as I have also got a past connection with Ireland as when I first set up a fashion label my partner was from Dublin and we did quite a lot of fashion shows there. And believe me when I say that my Swedish is rusty too, because I have lived that many years abroad and we speak a mixture of Spanish, English and Swedish at home. I like Lucia, -but why the King & the Queen??!? My parents are off to Tallinn this weekend, they say its very beautiful there!

      1. Ah, great stuff! 🙂 sounds you’ve had an interesting life! The King and/or Queen because Sweden is a Kingdom, so our highschool was like a mini-Kingdom and all the students were under this King/Queen and they even had a cape and crown and all 😀 but, anyhow, I hope your parents will have a good experience in Tallinn 🙂 it can really be welcoming and entertaining there 🙂
