  • About Twinkle:

    my life basically revolves around fashion and all things creative!I love art, literature, travelling, photography, film, shopping, music,all things 50's and kitsch! I have a habit of talking too much!Is that a bad thing?!?!?!?!I never leave the house without my sparkly green eyeshadow and camera!!!Travelling is one of my greatest loves and I have spent toe past few years exploring Europe, India, America, South East Asia and Japan...soon to add China to my places!!!

  • Hobbies:

    I work as a fashion designer which is my greatest passion! I adore music, I enjoy most types but especially bizarre electro-trashy stuff by Fischerspooner, MIA,Gravy Train, Freezepop, Peaches,Ladytron, Le Tigre, Chicks On Speed, The Raincoats, Jeffree Star, Deerhoof....A bit of funky house is always good as is jazz and of course Bob Marley! I like to go out a lot as I have a penchant for people watching and gin and tonic!Obviously travelling is number one in my way of spending time and every penny I save is dedicated to my latest venture! Apart from that I love to party, shop, chat, spend time with my friends, read, contemplate and create....blah blah blah.....

  • Favourite places:

    Thailand, amazing country full of wonderful people and Railay rates high as my perfect paradise! Japan is another favourite, I fell in love with all the neon, temples, singing toilets and cute vending machines that sell an array of pink cigarettes and yummy drinks!!!I also love Vatican City and have a special relationship with New York having spent two fashion seasons living over there which was an amazing experience!Kyoto is sooooo beautiful...I love California also, and Paris....actually I fell in love with almost everywhere Ive ever been!!
