Preppy Mafia & Top Two

Homegirl Alanna @ Sparkles and Sundresses tagged me!

1. Who is your style icon? Well if we’re going classic I have to say Jackie O- the woman never looked bad. Contemporary, probably Giuliana Rancic because she’s so darn cute ALL THE TIME.
2. What is your favorite socialite lit book? Probably Prep {honeslty I can't remember too much about it except I thought the book cover was so cute...oops}
3. Favorite party theme? It’s been forever since I’ve been to one of those- but the trophy wives parties were always the most fun to dress up for!
4. Go to Halloween costume? When in doubt, the Risky Business costume consisting of heels, men’s dress shirt & tie.
5. Extravagance you cannot live without? My Clarisonic. Hands down. I’d die if somebody took that baby from me. Changed. My. Life.
6. Living person you admire? my mom- the older I get the more okay I am with turning into her. I even look forward to it sometimes. She’s just so sweet and selfless- two traits I need to work on.
7. Greatest Fear? Currently, my wedding dress disappointing me. I’ve had two dreams now {one just last night} that the dress either has a) a giant poinsettia stitched on the bottom half or b) looks like the dress from sleeping beauty. Still gives me goose bumps.
8. Trait you deplore in yourself? 2 things- I can be a huge pushover and have trouble standing up for myself. And #2- around certain people I get catty/gossipy/rude {or maybe that’s a female thing?}
9. Which talent would you most like to have? I am hands down the worst dancer in the world. All of the footwork stresses me out. However, after a few drinks I forget this incapability and the outcome is usually VERY embarrassing!
10. Greatest Achievement? I graduated college with a 3.78 GPA which took a lot of work so I’m proud of it!

And because yes ladies and gents- today is Tuesday:

2 random things about me…

1. I cry at everything. I can see 2 minutes of TLC’s A Baby Story and bawl my eyes out and the Blind Side literally made me go blind from crying so much. I like to think I cry ‘happy tears’ because its literally every day I get misty eyed.

2. In college, I used to fall asleep to movies with my roommate. Now, its become a habit that whenever I sit down to watch a movie {doesn’t matter how early/late it is or where I am} I automatically fall asleep. For that reason, I’m not a huge fan of going to the movies- because it’s basically like paying $10 to take a nap sitting up.



  1. Um, I seriously have nightmares about my wedding dress to. But I'm putting money on it that it'll all work out in the end:)

  2. great answers!! I'm sure everything will be fine with the wedding dress -- but i certainly understand!
    Funny thing about falling asleep in the movies! My family of 4 once went on a city bus tour while on vacation (to see the sights, ya know?) and we ALL fell asleep b/c the drivers voice was so monotone! It was $40 each! What an expensive nap! We still laugh about it!

  3. 1. Movies instantly put me to sleep too! If the lights are out and I'm watching a movie on the couch, I am sleeping... even if it's 7:00 at night.
    2. I've had a few wedding nightmares where my dress is falling apart, my hair is a mess, and I'm all sweaty (gross!) - I think we brides-to-be are all haunted in our sleep of things going wrong on the big day. It will be BEAUTIFUL!

  4. Love Jackie O and I totally cry at everything too! The Brit think I'm going to cry all day on our wedding day. Probably should invest in some good waterproof mascara! My roomie and I also used to ALWAYS lay down on each ends of the couch (we had a big L shaped leather one in college) and put on a movie and we'd both be passed out within 15 minutes. I've gotten better at it if I'm upright, but the minute I try to lay down, I'm out! Too funny.
