being tagged is hardwork.

Almost a month back I was tagged by Jello on Springs to reveal the inside story of my blog. I'm sorry it took so long. Here it goes.
1. What is the story behind the name of your blog and your nickname?
I have this childish fascination for all things alliterative and silly rhyming. I made a list of all the probable names, took a poll amongst family and friends and ‘the fashion rookie’s jar’ turned out to be most popular (‘studious stylist’ was runner-up). Of course, the idea is that if you said fashionrookiesjar really quick it might sound like fortunecookiesjar. It doesn’t mean much but if you really dig deep, then all you’ll get is that I’m putting forth snippets of my style (like the little notes in fortune cookies) and that when it comes to fashion, art, etc. I’m like an eager intern, always wanting to learn.
My nickname Indi is an almost anagram of my real name. It is what my grandma came up with; she refused to wear dentures and found it hard to pronounce my name. Indi was easy and soft on her tongue.

2. Why did you start blogging in the first place?
I started my first blog when I was away from home. Since I’m not much of a talker, blogging seemed the ideal way to get things off my chest.

3. What has been your best blogging experience? What about the worst?
Receiving encouraging comments from bloggers all over the world that serve as incentive for me to keep my creative juices flowing, is by far the best experience. Worst, I suppose, is when things turn nasty on the comment space of anyone’s blog (mine has been spared so far). The whole point of blogging is freedom of expression, but when opinions are put across in a rude, vindictive manner, it is upsetting.

4. What do you think will happen to your blog in 2008?
Most of my blogging is dictated by my mood swings, which means I have absolutely no inkling of what I may do next. However, I'm going to try very hard to my disappearing act less often.
Sometime later Dreamecho asked me to spill the contents of my bag.
I think the only item that requires explaining is the piggy measuring tape (which a very dear friend gave me, knowing my love for pig things). I've been toting that around because I'm in charge of the renovation of my home. Of course, I'm taken so seriously when I whip that out.
As for tagging others, I think I've been such a late latif that most on my list have been already tagged. But for those haven't done this yet, I've just tagged you!

new camera, new green walls, good ol' sister.

She's my favourite model albeit a very reluctant one.
Tolerant, generous to a fault and silly.
Some of my long-limbed loved one's lovable quotes -
* " Oh look! They are cracking bursters!"
* " Vaseline makes your lips shiny hence it is make-up, a false illusion. I don't want to wear make-up."
* " C'mon, let's go. What do you feel like eating today?"

And the reason why this post is dedicated to her is because, she is buying me

despite the fact she's thinks I have way too many already.

holiday hangover

Christmas. Green eyes and I hammed it up for Dee. How could we not? Buzzing with rum cake and... the rose. The rose. The mood was set.

I had a long cosy holiday.
