I've been tagged for the 1st time!

Thanks to Eli at I spy, Thrift Eye I've been tagged for the 1st time. It is a kinda long tag be warned!

8 things I am passionate about:
  1. Tokyo and Japan in general. I am passionate about all parts of Japanese culture, the people, the crazy fashion, the language, the landscape, the city, the history and even the racism. I feel that I learnt so much from my year there, but there is still so much more to learn.
  2. Family, this is obvious, but I love my Husband, my mum, my sister and my dog so much, and appreciate them a lot more now after living away from them all in Japan.
  3. Thrifitng (op shopping in Australian English) Savers is my life right now! I am wearing only op shopped items right now, so without thrifting I could possible be naked right now!
  4. Fashion- I have always loved fashion, just ask my mother.
  5. Magazines- I buy way too many which I have posted about.
  6. Home decorating- I love interiors just as much as I love fashion. I guess its all about being creative.
  7. Travel. I am passionate about learning about all of the worlds cultures...lucky for me I live in a big multicultural city where I can walk down the street and hear maybe 20 different languages and try just as many different foods....but I still need to travel.
  8. Art.
8 Things I want to do before I die:
  1. I want to move back to Tokyo, Japan. I am not sure if I want it to be forever or for a few years though because
  2. I want to live in London for at least a year.
  3. Learn to speak fluent Japanese (I am slowly getting there...very slowly)
  4. Open a shop (I am not sure if I want to do this in Japan, the UK or in Australia...right now it looks like it could be in Japan in 3 years time with a good friend).
  5. Travel the world as much as possible. (I'm onto a good start having been to the UK, New York, Tokyo, Tahiti and all over Australia)
  6. I want to loose some weight (I lost it in Japan but have put it all back on again!)
  7. Have children with Henry. I want 2, I already have names.
  8. Have a pedicure!!! (I've never had one)

8 Things I say often:
  1. "In Japan..........."
  2. "In Tokyo.........."
  3. "Thats so random"
  4. "Kawaii"
  5. "Hachiko stop" (to my dog)
  6. "Henry can you get me......."
  7. "I don't want to go to work"
  8. "I miss Tokyo"

8 Books I have read Lately:
  1. On Chesil Beach, by Ian McEwan
  2. Style Deficit Disorder: Harajuku Street Fashion, by Tiffany Godo.
Thats all for books as I haven't had much time to read and no money to buy books! I do want to read Naked by David Sedaris though, and hope to buy that tomorrow.

8 Songs I could listen to over and over:
  1. Sexy Eyes by, Whigfield
  2. Time goes by, by Madonna
  3. Djapana, by Yothy Yindi (Australian Aboriginal band from the 80's-90's) I also like their song Treaty.
  4. Je veux te voir, by Yelle (French electro which was always played in Japan)
  5. Joy, by Yuki (Japan's answer to Bjork...only better!)
I can't think of any others right now...its late!

8 Things that attract to me to my best friends:

This is hard as I have actually got a lot of best friends (I don't really have a big circle of friends, each of these people are seperate and from different times in my life)
  1. All of my best friends are a little crazy
  2. they are all Creative
  3. and funny
  4. party animals
  5. who are very understanding
  6. and cool
  7. and loving
  8. and most importantly honest (occasionally)

That was really hard!!!!!
