My Answers to Nicole’s Questions:

1.       What’s your favorite restaurant in your city? Out of all the hundreds of restaurants in NYC (granted, I have not had the opportunity to try them all) so far I would have to say my favorite is the Shake Shack! I love going there in the summertime to relax and grab a yummy ShackBurger or frozen custard.
2.       What blog inspired you to finally start writing your own? There wasn’t one blog in particular that inspired me to start writing my own. I just grew up reading Vogue and other fashion magazines and knew that I wanted to share my thoughts on fashion as well as give other fashionistas a place to interact with each other.
3.       What is one thing you’ve tried from Pinterest & it succeeded? I made these sugar cookies bars. They were amazing!

4.       On the flip-side, what is one thing you’ve tried from Pinterest that was a complete fail? I tried to make pina colada cupcakes with a lime cream cheese frosting, but it was just a complete disaster haha
5.       What is your dream career? I would love to work for Vogue magazine or maybe do PR work for a high-end fashion designer…pretty much anything that would allow me to travel and attend fashion shows! Haha
6.       Admit it: What is your favorite guilty pleasure tv show? I am a big True Blood fan

7.       What one color appears again and again in your home? I use pops of green in my apartment a lot
8.       If you could splurge on one designer piece (fashion or furnishings), what would it be? Definitely something from Alexander McQueen like this emerald a-line dress.

9.        Name your favorite vacation spot. Anywhere in the south =]
10.    What is one new to you blog that you can’t get enough of? Besides Probably Polka Dots? I enjoy reading  The Fashion Column..everyone should check them out!

11.   Where is your #1 place to shop? Living in the city means I don’t have too much money to spend so I enjoy shopping at places like Forever 21, TJ Maxx or even Aeropostale (I got this cute leopard print infinity scarf from there!)  where I can get trendy pieces at more affordable prices.
