#1. inspirational |ˌinspəˈrā sh ənl| adjective; providing or showing creative or spiritual inspiration

I wanted to do a series of posts about people who 'inspire' me. I think using the word 'inspirational' can seem a bit pretentious but I'm not sure if there is anything that could sum up these people any better?

My first post has to be, without a doubt, about my Mum.

Everyone I'm sure can think of a million lovely things to say about their Mum but my Mum is particularly special to me, as I have no other siblings. 

01. She is the kindest, silliest and genuinely nicest person I know
02. I know that wherever I am in the world, which right now is almost 800 miles away, she'll be there for me
03. She always surprises me with nice things, I'm extremely lucky that she always makes so much effort for me
04. She posts me my beloved Elle magazines (at extortionate costs to her), along with all the other things that I miss from home
05. In two short weeks she's coming all the way to Germany to see me & have a long weekend together in Munich (which right now I am piss my pants excited about) :D

She's amazing, I love her to bits & she's my number one bestest most 'inspirational' person. Full stop :)


At last, my love has come along: March Elle is here!

It may have taken what seemed like forever, but finally my March issue of UK Elle is here :D

I thought Moschino's SS11 ad campaign was stunning, love love love this picture :)

Off to Munich tomorrow morning for a weekend of Karneval so I've now got my train reading sorted, 3hrs 50mins, pah!

'The Caterpillar and Alice looked at each other for some time in silence: at last the Caterpillar took the hookah out of its mouth, and addressed her in a languid, sleepy voice. 'Who are you?' said the Caterpillar.' Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll 1865

Name: Charlotte
DOB: November '88 baby
Nationality: British
Currently: enjoying my Erasmus year living in Bayreuth, Germany

I am an English Literature and German language & culture student from Lichfield, England.

I wanted my first post to reflect a little bit about me. I am often referred to by friends as Stringaling, hence my username :)

I love: art, literature, music, fashion, travel, violent films & trashy TV.
I am never happier than when my new Elle magazine arrives, unfortunately this is taking longer & longer since moving to Germany, sad times!
I hate: when people show a lack of respect, it's the one thing that really niggles me & I think it can be applied to any aspect of life :)

I have no specific agenda when writing this blog, I don't want to make it a specific music or fashion or art etc blog, there's nothing wrong with those but I have very eclectic tastes & I want my blog to reflect that.

A little bit of me over the past few years...
