proust q & a…besotted brand



I’m delighted to feature my bloggy friend Tristan (aka Miss B) who is a mighty talented lady. She is the creative mind behind the beautiful Besotted Brand and the equally swoon-worthy companion blog. Her photography and love of animals first caught my eye years ago…between her adorable frenchie and dreamy imagery I can get lost for hours. I’m continually inspired by her thirst for knowledge, business savvy, and passionate approach to life. I find her Proust answers quite fascinating + fun-I certainly share her idea of misery. Head over to her site and also find her on twitter…merci Tristan!


Your favourite motto.

La vida es bella. Life is beautiful in Spanish…I love to say it and I love it’s simplicity + truth.

If not yourself, who would you be?

Jane Goodall has always endlessly fascinated me, but so has Truman Capote, such opposite sides of the spectrum but I think they both would be delightful.

Your favourite colour and flower.

I love white. For scent I adore night blooming jasmine + lemon blossom and for looks a tie between peony and David Austin roses (which look like organic peonies)! 

Your idea of happiness.

Being in love with your life.

Your idea of misery.


Your chief characteristic.

I’d like to think it is my keen wit.

Where would you like to live?

I would love to live in one of those beautiful old libraries. I love books, I love to learn and of course the character and charm of a beautiful library is swoon worthy. 

Your favourite food & drink.

Butter. Is that considered a food? If not, crusty bread. For drink I am currently addicted to Italian sparkling water.

Your favourite qualities in friends.

I love thoughtfulness. I think thoughtful people are more considerate and well-mannered and definitely more appreciative. I love thoughtfulness in a friend, I love it in any individual!

What is your present state of mind?

At this moment I am in complete and utter awe.

  1. Lovely Proust Q&A. I especially love the ideas part–totally agree with happiness = being in love with your life. And even misery = humidity, ha.

  2. Nice Proust Q&A and a bit funny because Tristan is my son’s first name.

    rance, je vous souhaite une bonne journé!

  3. The humidity survival guide from a Southerner:

    1. The right hair products

    2. The right skin products

    3. A new perspective: Take that same humidity on a summer night, mix it with the scents of jasmine and gardenia, the sounds of old jazz or blues and the whir of a porch fan, with a glass of something cold in your hand, and that humidity becomes “sultry” instead. ;)

    • love that perspective Suzonne…makes me miss New Orleans!
