I am Eloise, and I am stubborn, horribly narcissistic, and I get mad easily. I like cherry mint shisha; brown paper packages tied up in string; interesting people with interesting habits; cocktails and conversations in nice places; when I'm not arguing with (best friend no #3) maybesunday; good books, but I prefer great coffee; most Asian food; heist films and big flat screen television sets; surfing the net in my underpants; simmering in the great melencholy; traveling in first class, or by tuk tuk, or by junk (it doesn't matter as long as I'm out there somewhere); and a good shopping trip.
I write (most of) my journal entries in third person, because I want to try something different. I have created three communities; a fashion and style community called sartorialism (for the worship of all things beautifully made), teepeople for t shirt lovers like myself, and pavlovs (for my grandiose work of fiction which is still in the works); but haven't yet had time to work on them (all of which I have procrastinated on but I will have to finish working on sooner or later!).

Besides the books listed, I also have an unforgivable soft spot for Gossip Girl by Cecily von Ziegesar; How to Walk in High Heels by Camilla Morton; Blue Bloods and The Au Pairs by Melissa de la Cruz.
