I’ve seen little questionnaires going around bloggy-land recently. Figured that I haven’t done one in a long time, so I’d give it another go! These are always fun 🙂
1. Favorite Color:
Purple. I used to hate the color, as in, it was my least favorite color in the entire world. Then, something came over me & made me love it. I’m in love with how regal it looks in room decor …when done right, that is.
2. Favorite food that you make:
Anyone who knows me knows that I’m definitely not a whiz in the kitchen. I enjoy cooking when I get the motivation to do so. One thing I can make with my eyes closed is a really great shrimp fettuccine alfredo. I make the sauce from scratch & have absolutely no rhyme to my reason. A little cream cheese here, a little butter there …no measuring cups involved.
3. Favorite Food Network Chef:
Expanding on #2, I don’t cook …so I don’t watch the Food Network. I have promised myself that I’m going to get better about this! Another reason (& possibly the main reason) why I don’t watch the Food Network is because I LOVE to eat. Watching all of that yummy food be prepared makes my tummy growl in mere seconds. I can’t torture myself, you know.
4. What is the last beauty product you bought, and are you liking it?:
I recently bought a few new things from the MAC counter. I had never used their products before, but have really been loving what I purchased. My favorite item is the cremesheen lipstick in “Creme Cup.” It’s the PERFECT nude-pink!
5. What are your top 3 beauty products:
Oh, where do I start? Okay, if you’re forcing me to choose, my top three would be…
1. “Ocean Salt” Exfoliating Scrub by LUSH & my Clarisonic Mia
I rotate using these two things every other night. They have made such a huge impact on my skin, making it so smooth & even. I purchased the “Ocean Salt” when I was in NYC with Brandon. The sales associate used in on my hand & I was immediately hooked. It has so many natural ingredients in it, including vodka, which tones & tightens pores. It’s absolutely fantastic. I look forward to using it more than my Clarisonic now!
2. MAC Studio Finish Concealer
As many of you know from my older posts, I have been on the hunt for the most perfect concealer for my under-eye area. I have tried Bobbi Brown, Laura Mercier, Tarte, Clinique, Smashbox, Amazing Cosmetics, Benefit, and really, the list goes on & on. Then I heard about the Studio Finish Concealer. It has the best coverage of any others that I’ve tried, and it’s the least expensive of all of the other high-end concealers! It lasts all day & doesn’t crease any more than all the others do. It has vitamin E in it to help your under-eyes look creamy!
…gosh, this is really hard to choose a third one! I have so many favorites that I need to do one large post on my all-time favorite products. I would have to say that my third favorite beauty product is…
3. Clinique Gel Liner in Black
It will stay on all. day. long. It doesn’t smudge & it looks really black. Also, the tub may be small, but it lasts forever!
7. Essie or OPI?
I’m going to have to go with Essie because I enjoy their color selection more!
8. How often do you workout?
I work out for an hour, five times a week. I do it on my lunch break, so it’s very easy to go. If I had to go at 5pm, I would never go! By that time, I’m ready to relax!
9. Iced or hot coffee?
Probably iced. I tend to enjoy cold things more than hot! Unless it’s freezing outside, that is.
10. Favorite celebrity couple:
12. Place you have never been but would like to go:
13. What gift did you get from your wedding registry that you get the most use out of?:
Well, I’ve never been married & am not yet engaged. But on my wedding registry, the first things I’ll list are classic china, a nice set of pots/pans, and a great set of knives. Even though I don’t cook NOW, it doesn’t mean I won’t start when I get married! Or if I still prefer to dine at restaurants at that time, at least my kitchen will be well stocked!
14. Biggest pet peeve?
When people smack their gum loudly, laziness, being promised something & then, it never happens. When people smack their gum loudly, people that are lazy, being promised something & then, it never happens.
16. Favorite book:
One of my top favorites is Bergdorf Blondes by Plum Sykes. It has kind of a silly plot, but it’s so fun to read (over & over).
Right now, I’m reading Remember Me by Sophie Kinsella. I’m loving it so far!
18. Favorite Halloween costume?:
Once, Brandon and I were a “s’more” for Halloween. I dressed in white & was the marshmallow. He dressed in brown & was the chocolate. We each had a life-size piece of cardboard attached to our back. When we’d hug, we would look just like a s’more! Cute idea, but kind of inconvenient since we had to stay attached the whole time.
20. What advice would you give your 17 year old self?
I would tell my 17 year old self to not be in a hurry to grow up & to enjoy being young.
Heck, I’m telling myself that right now …this job is just getting in the way of the whole “go be young while you can” part. 😉
I’d like to “tag” all of you to fill out this questionnaire! I’d love to learn more about you ladies!
