11 Facts

Well hello!

I am THRILLED that Michelle from Sweet Musings tagged me in her post last week! I loved learning fun facts about one of my favorite bloggers and am tasked to do the same for my readers! Check out the rules and then please read my answers below.

1. You must post these rules.
2. Each person must post 11 things about herself on her blog.
3. Answer the questions the "tagger" listed for you in her post, and create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
4. You must choose 11 people to tag and link to them in the post.
5. Go to each blogger’s page and mention that you have tagged her.

1. Valentines Day, like or dislike?

Oh I wish I could answer this with a simple answer. When I was single I outwardly hated the holiday and was inwardly insanely jealous of couples. I would justify eating chocolate to my heart's content, because that was my true love at the time. Then I would get drunk with my sorority sisters and it made being single fun. Now that I have Andrew in my life I think it is a fun "holiday" of sorts, but it really isn't any different than any other day. He's awesome and shows his love every day (I apologize if you just vomited). So really Valentine's Day is now an excuse for us to order heart-shaped pizza and for me to wear red.

2. What is your all-time favorite movie?

That's a tough one. I love escaping in movies, whether terrible or phenomenal. My best friend Mo is the biggest movie buff and works on movies now in L.A.!! Thanks to her influence, I simply cannot choose just one. Let me be a loser and classify my favorites according to random genres that I classified:

Favorite Chick Flick: Mean Girls
Favorite sports movie: The Blind Side or Hoosiers...or any sports movie.
I can't get enough of them.
Favorite comedy: Anchorman
Favorite holiday movie: Elf...or Love Actually...or The Holiday...or Holiday Inn!
Ahh! Can't choose!
Favorite musical: Lullaby of Broadway...or Singin' In the Rain... or Moulin Rouge... or...
Favorite classic: Sabrina (with Audrey)
Favorite 80s movie: The Breakfast Club
Favorite 90s movie: Forrest Gump...or, let's be honest...Clueless. So great.
Movie that always makes me cry: Stepmom. Every.Damn.Time.
Favorite pre-Pixar Disney movie: The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, and The Lion King.

I could keep going, but won't. Mo, what do you think of my choices?? :)

3. Who is your favorite designer?

You can find me fawning over Michael Kors and Kate Spade any day of the week and twice on Sunday.

Example A: My watch
Example B: My wallet

4. What is your ideal vacation destination?

Spain or Greece or France or...anywhere across the pond.

5. What is your guilty pleasure?

OK fine. I confess. Lately it's The Bachelor. I am in a fantasy league with some co-workers so I have a reason to watch it, but yeah. I curse myself for watching it and yet I can't wait to see who the ugly weird bachelor will send home tomorrow. I just shuddered.

6. What color will you be wearing most this spring?

I'm dreaming in pastels and neutrals...

7. Do you carry a clutch or huge handbag most often, and what does it look like or who is it by?

Ha. I WISH I could carry a clutch everywhere I go. Unfortunately I carry my life with me in the form of receipts, stray pieces of paper and coupons, and just random junk. At least it's all lovingly tossed in my gorgeous Michael Kors bag that Andrew got me for our first anniversary. It's a beautiful camel-colored leather bag with gold accents, big enough to fit my laptop without appearing over-stuffed.

8. What are you currently reading?

The Help! I am truly enjoying it. As much as it pains me to set it aside, I try to pause at certain moments and reflect on the content. It can certainly be hard to swallow at times. I can't wait to see the movie once I finish.
9. If you were only allowed to wear one item of makeup what would it be?

One? I feel bad for anyone who had to see me that day. It is hard to choose between mascara and concealer but I think I would go with concealer. And a hat. And a scarf. And sunglasses.

10. Favorite nail polish brand and color?

Essie's Chinchilly! I wear it all of the time! I used to solely buy OPI, but Essie doesn't chip as quickly. I am also a Deborah Lippmann fan, but her bottles are too pricey and at too few stores for me to be a loyalist.

11. How would you describe your personal style?

Wannabe cute. My inspiration comes from trendy people I see in the city and from pinterest. I attempt to emulate the looks but fall short most of the time. However, I think I have a good eye, love color as much as I love classic pieces, and will think of any way to justify a purchase. I guess I try to be trendy preppy with my style, but I am a Value City-minded shopper for life (may the company rest in peace).

My turn to ask the Q's! Can't wait to read the A's!!!


1. If you could live anywhere at any point in your life where would you live? Of course it can be where you currently reside!

2. Are you a morning or night person?

3. How do you keep in touch with friends who may not live near you?

4. Pop or Soda?

5. Do you plan everything, are you spontaneous, or can you balance both traits?

6. Favorite way to spend a Friday night?

7. Favorite way to unwind?

8. Coffee or Tea?

9. How would you describe your style?

10. Where and when did you spend your favorite weekend getaway?

11. When was the last time you did something for the first time?
