love & beauty with Gala Darling.

Gala Darling

what makes you feel wonderful?
Writing, creating, plotting & planning, loud music!

 what makes you feel beautiful?
A strategically-dropped compliment from someone I have a crush on. 

 if you are having a sub-par day, what do you do or say to make yourself feel good again again?
I turn up good music & either dance or hoop around my living room; I do a nice, long ashtanga yoga session; I write; I sing; I talk to my friends or I use EFT (a self-healing technique).  Sometimes I do a combination of these things.  & when I’m home in New York City, I throw on shoes & sunglasses & go for a long walk.  Walking around the city is an amazing antidote to a day that’s dragging.

where do you think love hides?
In the pockets of strangers.

 when do you feel most loved?
When I share a real connection with someone.

what do you think is the most beautiful thing about being a girl?
Everything.  Really, everything.

what is your favourite rainy day activity?
Sitting really close to someone I really like & doing anything.  Talking, dreaming, laughing.

 if you had to make your friend a cheer-up box what are 5 items you would put in it?
1. A fortune — maybe from a cookie, maybe from a mechanical fortune-teller, maybe one I made myself.
2. A letter telling them exactly why I love them.
3. A copy of one of my favourite books.
4. Snacks.
5. Cute knickers. 
Everything would be colour-coordinated, of course.

when you hear the word “beautiful” what image immediately pops up in your mind?
The light that shines out of people.

 when you hear the word “love” what sound resonates in your ears?
A delicious menagerie of all my favourite musicians, spun together.

  1. I was surprised to see Gala on this website! I was thinking, “Am I on Icing? I thought this was Y.A.M?” Then I realized it was an interview! Yay, two of my favorite blogs. 🙂 Good interview.

    I need to start walking around the city when I feel down as well. I always get a little paranoid though!

  2. what happened to the “quotations” section?
    i used to eat icecream and read them after an off day -_-

  3. ‘Everything. Really, everything.’ That answer made me so happy. Sometimes it’s easy to feel all yuck as a girl, but it’s true. Girls, in every single way, are so beautiful – every little thing is good and beautiful.
