INTRODUCING...


Fay Costello.

Fay is an aspiring writer, blogger and sometime self-proclaimed artist, but that’s a story for another day; having a way with words I have invited her to start a monthly feature on the KerrieALDO blog to cover all things fashion, art and pop culture with a few personal challenges threw in along the way.

Before we get started I thought you might like to get to know her a little better so I’ve set her up with some quick fire questions. 

Here goes….

List 3 of words to describe yourself - Clumsy, generous, whimsical

Cats or dogs? – Dogs

What thing can you not live without? - A phone and it's a crying shame because I have a terrible track record of losing them so I have to live without one pretty often. 

What’s your favorite thing in your wardrobe? - My Kerrie Aldo jungle print over shirt.  Coats are my thing.



What are you listening to or reading at the moment? - I'm listening to Girl Ray and pretending to read '100 Years of Solitude'.  I bought it at Edinburgh Airport a few weeks ago but I get distracted very easily.

What is one of the things you would put on your “bucket” list? - Go over Niagara Falls in a barrel.

If a movie was made of your life what genre would it be, who would play you? - Oh Jesus, right now?  A really bad romantic comedy, and I'd be played by Rebel Wilson.

If you could paint anything what would you paint (I know you’ll have something next on the list)? - My Mum has asked me to paint her a highland cow (don't ask) so I'll get that done for Mother's Day.

What celebrity annoys you the most? - Rob Kardashian: an embarrassment to the entire family.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be? - San Francisco

What is your hidden talent? - I'm a dab hand at forging signatures. 

What high street shop do you shop at the most? - H&M

What fashion trend do you just not get? - Embellished jeans

What song do you listen to most often? - For the last few weeks it's been "Love is All Around" by Wet, Wet, Wet.  I'm not even a Rangers fan.

What is your favorite food? - Right now, I'm loving banana pancakes with cinnamon.


Who do you admire the most? - I'll say Lena Dunham; I know she rubs people up the wrong way but I love Girls; she's very funny, talented and even though I'm not a fan of Hilary Clinton, I admire how involved Lena was in the campaign.  I think it's important to be vocal when it comes to politics.

What is your least favorite type of music? - Classical

What is your favorite sport to watch? - I love the gymnastics when the Olympics are on.  I watched a basketball game when I went to New York and it was brilliant, a total laugh. 

What is the last thing you liked on social media? - A picture of Sara MacDonald (Noel Gallagher's wife) with a Man City player.  True story - she read my blog and said I made her laugh a lot.   

Favorite colour? - Blue

What is the last gig you went to? - Arab Strap in Glasgow, which ended up being a night of complete nonsense. I'm going to make an effort to go to more gigs this year.

Last item you purchased? - A great second hand jacket, it's brown suede with batwing sleeves and leopard print fur lining. 



What would you do if you won the lottery? - Spend a few months in California.

Where do you most want to travel, but have never been? - South America, but if I'm being honest, I'll probably never go.  Too scared of tarantulas and roadside robberies.

What’s your favorite animal? - Sharks

Gold or silver? - I'll say silver but I don't wear jewellry.

List 5 goals on your life’s to-do list: Stop smoking, quit sugar, learn to drive, publish a novel & live in Greece for a while.

How would you describe your style? - Like a sloppy All Saint

Favorite fashion era? - Nineties

Favorite book? - To Kill a Mockingbird

Chocolate or crisps? - Chocolate

Tote bag or handbag? - Tote bag

What’s your guilty pleasure? - Jonathan Creek

Instagram or snapchat? - Instagram, by default as I don't have snapchat.  Absolutely sick to death of seeing picture of folk with flowers on their head, like they are genuinely wearing a headband and not just airbrushing themselves. 

Favorite Instagram account to browse on? - History Cool Kids or Ray Liotta's personal account.

What’s your favorite emoji? - The Monkey that's cringing, it's used a lot.

Last film you saw? - Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.


What tv show are you watching? - Girls, Broadchurch and Taboo.  I don't watch any live TV, though.

Your favourite karaoke song? - Grease Megamix

                                                                                                                                                                        

So now you have some incredibly useless information about Lil Fay which you hopefully found half as amusing as I did!?  The first contribution to the blog will follow on next week with an interesting shopping challenge she has set herself, check back again next week to hear what she has got to say!
