Gather round and meet …Her Name Was Lola

August 26, 2009

Blog: Her Name Was Lola

Blogger’s Name: Lara

Location: New York

Why We Like Her: We love the variety of Lara’s blog. When asked where she got her inspiration from, she said:

My travels, for one. I’ve had ample opportunity over the past few years to live and travel to some extraordinary places. I’m constantly inspired by my surroundings. New York City provides a spectacular backdrop for a lot of what I’m writing about now. Fashion, food, film, theatre, architecture, interior design, you name it; and sometimes it’s the little things that make the largest impression, like French macarons!

She gets her inspiration from so many wonderful areas of life and it really shows in her content, which always makes you want to go back for more.

Awh Wow …..anything else we should know: We like the pictures she features ….a lot ….like this one:

We also like her simple and straightforward writing style: no long-winded novel-sized snore-fest posts here!! Oh and she posts loads, which makes us adore her, cos there’s nothing we like more than a frequent poster who provides us with lots of viewing material.

Oh wait ….we like comment-backers even more than that.

And guess what….

…she’s a really good comment-backer!

The Lightning Round

….the place where we ask THE hard-hitting, inportant Life questions that you all need and want to know:

If you could have tea and cake with any three people (living or dead) who would you pick?
Jane Austen, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, and Meryl Streep.

If you could have one superpower, which would you choose?
I’d like to have the superpower to pull off the one-piece patent leather jumpsuit Michelle Pfeiffer donned as Cat Woman.

Money can’t buy you love, but it COULD buy you……?
A Vespa.

Who is your fashion idol?
Cate Blanchett walks on the wild side of fashion. I must admit, sometimes her wardrobe can be just a little too far out there, but it’s always exciting and supremely glamorous. She can do no wrong.

If you could have any three items in your apartment, what would you chose?
The Art Deco Vanity from The Paris Apartment Boutique, the Zebra-Motif Mirror from Horchow, and the striped taxi legs print from she hit pause. studios for the wall.

Now go check out her guest post below….

    “Money can’t buy you love, but it COULD buy you……?
    A Vespa.”

    Love this answer. Don’t know why, but it made me giggle. And want a Vespa.

    Can’t believe I only just discovered Her Name Was Lola, but I guess that’s what this blog is for hey?

    I rarely write responses, but i did some searching and wound up here Gather round and meet Her Name Was Lola | Diamond in
    the Rough. And I do have a couple of questions for you if you usually do
    not mind. Could it be simply me or does it seem like some of the remarks come across like written by brain dead folks?
    😛 And, if you are posting at other online social sites,
    I would like to follow anything new you have to post. Could you list of all of your public pages like your
    linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
