So the last topic of the May blogging challenge is...
Something I'm Obsessed With at the Moment...
I often have multiple obsessions at the same time. I'll admit I've always had a bit of an obsessive personality; I easily become passionate about things I love, and can never get enough of it. I like to do things properly! Many of my obsessions do last a life time, though; be it music, style, books, movies, celeb crushes or whatever.
I'm currently obsessing over Dorothy Perkins dresses, midi dresses... (hell, any dresses!), bird prints and accessories, Stephen King novels, Titanic, my Kindle, and The Big Bang Theory!
These are the bird print dresses and tops in my collection. You've seen photos of me wearing most of them already this season. They're all (unintentionally) from Dorothy Perkins, except for the bird cage design in the first photo. What can I say? They have had so many beautiful clothes in recently that I really haven't needed to look elsewhere for pretty new things, which I normally would do. I normally shop around a hell of a lot more.
These are some of my bird necklaces, and my DP toucan t-shirt. I love flamingos, toucans and parrots. I always get drawn to accessories designed around these creatures.
I was once lucky enough to do work experience in the bird gardens at Whipsnade Wild Animal Park for a week and I loved the experience. I got to hold the macaws and African greys that came to them as ex-pets, fly a Harris hawk, and be around all sorts of exotic birds. The good memories have always stayed with me and perhaps a reason why I love them in fashion, too.
These two bright and colourful necklaces definitely have a childish, nostalgic way about them. They're certainly accessories I would have loved as a child- maybe that's why I love em...
I just realised there are also birds on my bedding and curtains!
Away from fashion and style, I love to read, and Stephen King is easily my favourite author. Before my injury, I never had any time or energy to read as my job was exhausting. I'm making up for lost time now and am trying to get through each of his novels, apart from the Dark Tower saga as I'm not a fan of the genre.
I had The Stand on my shelf for a couple of years and put off reading it because it had so may pages. I downloaded it on the Kindle (my new favourite thing!) in January and found I couldn't put it down; it's easily one of my favourite books now and I highly recommend it if you enjoy end of the world type stories. I think I have 18 unread Stephen King's on my book shelf, and a handful to read on my Kindle as well as some by other authors, too. I'm currently just over half way through IT but I'm a little bored. Under The Dome and The Tommyknockers are great novels, too, and I really enjoyed The Hunger Games trilogy, and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.
I seem to share the Stephen King obsession with Rachel, whose style is also similar to mine! She has flawless taste!
I've also been obsessed with Titanic since I first went to see it as an eleven year old all those years ago. I keep going back to it time and time again, but recently I've been putting it on in the background an awful lot. I could recite the entire film back to you. Sad, but true.
I've had so much fun taking part in the blogging challenge, and have loved seeing everybody else's posts each day. I'm a little sad that it's all come to an end!
Back to the drawing board for June it is!
What are you obsessing over?
