Tag...You're It!

I'm feeling SO much better! Thank you all so much for the well wishes!  Seriously, the BEST readers EVER!<3

Recently, I was tagged by the lovely Stephanie of Maybe Someday We'll be Smarter, for a little Q & A. She's asked me some fun questions, so let's get to it.

1. What's your hidden talent?
Gift Wrapping
I'm an excellent gift wrapper! I love wrapping presents, and would much rather use pretty paper and fancy ribbon over gift bags any day! I would love to have the space to create a designated wrapping area in my house.

2. What would your last meal be?
 Thanksgiving Dinner
By far, my favorite meal of the year is Thanksgiving. I look forward to it all year long, and have been known to hound my Mom to repeat the meal at Christmas. 

3. Favorite teacher?
 Celebrity makeup artist, Joanna Schlip
Without Joanna, I would not have a career as a makeup artist, period. She has taught me so much, not just about makeup, but about navigating my way through the entertainment biz.  She's been an amazing teacher,  mentor,  and an even more amazing friend.

4. Least favorite chore to do?
I could honestly say that I loathe most household chores, but dishes take the cake! I especially can't stand it when dishes have sat for any period of time. Gross!

5. Cupcakes or Macaroons?
Ever since my pink Kitchen Aid mixer came into my life, I've turned into quite the cupcake maker. Some of my favorites to make are: Strawberry, Lemon-Poppy Seed, Key-Lime, Pumpkin, Chocolate-Hazelnut (Nutella), and Dark Chocolate-Peppermint (for Christmas).

6. One Summer movie that you have to watch?
I've been waiting for this since the opening day of New Moon! Can't wait!!!

7. What are you currently reading?
I'm hoping that I'll have some time for Summer reading by the pool, but for now I  barely have time to catch up on my daily reads.

8. Who's your doppelganger?
 Reese Witherspoon
I don't really get it when people say that I look like Reese, especially since she's so notoriously blonde, and I'm not. So, I had to find a picture of her when she went brunette for "Walk the Line." This is the only way I can kind of see it.

My Questions:
  1. Favorite designer?
  2. What's your dream bag?

  5. If you could go anywhere for a week long vacation, where would you go?
  6. Who is your celebrity crush?
  7. What's your "can't miss" TV show?
  8. Who's your style icon?


  1. Very fun to read! Thanks for tagging me, I'm lacking some blog inspiration this week so I'm happy to have some! :)

  2. Fun answers! I'm excited about Eclipse too. I don't think I'm going to watch it at midnight though. I always end up missing something in the Twilight movies because of being up so long. :P

  3. I love this tagging game. Fun to learn more about you :) Thanksgiving dinner is a good answer for that. It would be the perfect last meal!

  4. I absolutely loathe doing dishes too! It's the one chore I just can't stand. I'd much rather clean the bathroom than do dishes!

    If you're interested, I'm hosting a giveaway for a Wendy Mink necklace (retail value: $175), drop by!

  6. Oh fun! I love these kinds of things...thanks for tagging me :)

  7. Great quiz! We sound like we are very similar ;)

  8. Ohhh, I am not a fan of doing the dishes either. I will, however, load a dishwasher any day of the week! And I'm really jealous of your gift-wrapping skills as I have... None.
