A deep mind, a sunny life and a badass style; that’s three things we wouldn’t say no to and that blogger/model/writer Tasha Cortez aka “Gypsy Wandering” has with no doubt!
Living the dreamy Aussie life far away from the grey streets of London, we took the chance to catch her in the go for some quick Q/As to have a peak in this free souls mind:
Name: Tasha Cortez
My style: Transient and mood dependent, I don’t know if I actually have a particular personal style, but if I had to summarize – Boy vs girl, attempted cowboy meets rock ‘n’ roll grunge
Tell us something special about yourself: Nothing comes to mind immediately – except that I have a special knack for untangling even the most knotted cords, jewellery and strings, with freakish quickness. There you go, my secret talent, not so secret any more. It does come in handy, though.
Favourite quote/motto: My fault, my failure, is not in the passions I have, but in my lack of control of them.”
― Jack Kerouac / pretty much anything written by Jack Kerouac
Favourite film/ book/ song: My Own Private Idaho or Almost Famous / The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Euginedes/ at the moment, Rock The Casbah by the Clash
What inspires /motivates you? Anything and everything
What’s the first thing about a man that catches your attention? Their vibe/energy, although I’m a sucker for a good head of hair and pair of cheekbones too
What interests you? People’s souls and vulnerability being poured into their art in it’s entirety, no matter what it is. Also getting lost somewhere in the world and barrel aged whiskey
Your happiest memory? Anytime that involves good conversation with good people, mostly in nature or heading off on an adventure somewhere – that’s when I’m happiest
Current obsession? Crime documentaries and black satin
Favorite hangouts: Gracias Madre in West Hollywood, plus a new little whiskey bar that opened up in Byron that the tourists haven’t discovered yet. Pretty much any beach or desert.
Guilty pleasure: Vanderpump Rules. Yep, I read James Joyce but no shame in admitting I love me a little trash TV
I can’t live without: music, books, coffee and the ocean. And my black lace up boots.
