About Me

Hello! Here is a little info about me!

My name is Maren, I am in grade 10, and I go to a very small school. I live with my fish, cats and parents, and I enjoy baking cupcakes. My favourite bands are Hole, Neutral Milk Hotel, Arcade Fire, Cat Power, The Smiths, Simon & Garfunkel, David Bowie ( not really a band, more an artist) and the Beatles. I like watching TV. Especially crime shows. heehee. I LOVE Freaks & Geeks and I am DEFINITELY on team Bill.  I also love My So Called Life, and I just really can't stand Jordan Catalano or Brian Krakow. I like to watch movies, and my favourites are Ghost World, Juno, Edward Scissorhands, Moonrise Kingdom and The Royal Tenenbaums. I like to draw and paint in watercolours. You can see my favourite books here.

I started a blog because I was inspired by all the blogs I follow, and Tavi. My favourite designers are Meadham Kirchhoff, Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton. I like to shop at thrift stores, Forever 21 and Urban Outfitters. My favourite magazine is Nylon, and I love National Geographic. My favourite one online is Rookie. My favourite photographer is Petra Collins.

My most prized possessions are probably my docs, my ipod and my computer. That is really sad that 2 of my prized possessions are technology. Let's try that again. My docs, my ipod and my books. Oh and my record player too!

I take my photos with my Cannon Power Shot SX130 IS, usually on self timer. I edit some of my photos on PicMonkey. If you want to use any of my photos or art, please comment & ask!
