Ask The Readers!

Sweater (under $70)// Cords 
Suede Bag (monogrammed!)

Today I'm doing something a little different! I want to get to know all of you a little more. Blogging is definitely more one-sided and less conversational than social media (which is why I tend to prefer social media) but I want to try and remedy that and get to know all of you a little better!

I know you all are smart, inspiring, empowering, and have great taste so I'm excited to learn more about what you're all about! I'm also itching for some binge-worthy Netflix ideas, some great recipes, and more! So, today, I'd love to invite you to fill out the super short questionnaire (you can click the link to fill it out and I have also embedded it at the bottom of this post for easy access). You can choose to answer just one of the questions or all of them, it's totally up to you and it can be totally anonymous, too! I will do this a few times a year so keep an eye out for them and hopefully, this will create more of a conversation and sharing of fun and happiness! I'll be sure to post some of the responses as I get them so we are all learning from each other! 

And obviously, I'm going to share my answers with all of you! So here it goes:

Favorite movie of all time:
This is a tough one,  but I'm going to go ahead choose Father of the Bride, When Harry Met Sally or Home Alone.

Show that you should be watching:
I LOVED Westworld, Stranger Things, and The Night Of. Couldn't recommend them more. I'm currently watching The Bachelor (duh), This Is Us, and The Crown and love them all.

Best book I've ever read:
I mean, in all honesty, Harry Potter. #NoShame

Favorite (easy and somewhat healthy recipe):
My 3 ingredient spaghetti squash recipe. You just need your favorite jarred pasta sauce, a spaghetti squash and Trader Joe's Sweet Italian Sausage. You can read full directions, here. It's beyond easy and SO delicious. Also, it makes enough for several people.

Favorite store/brand to shop:
Dream brand would probably be Carolina Herrera, Oscar De La Renta, or Ralph Lauren Collection. But in reality, Club Monaco and Tuckernuck.

Favorite quote of all time:
I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. He taught me that if you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it at full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good. Hot is no good either. White hot and passionate is the only thing to be. -Roald Dahl

Best vacation you've ever taken:
Probably anywhere ski related and I really loved St. Maarten.

Favorite blog:
I just love Atlantic-Pacific. She mixes lower end and luxury so well and is the best at wearing a ton of color in a chic way.

Favorite non-fashion Instagram account:
I've recently become obsessed with Tina's, The Enchanted Home. So. Much. Interior. Inspiration.

Favorite affordable red wine:
Estancia Cabernet Sauvignon. It's around $17(ish) and SO good.

Favorite Trader Joe's item:
I love all things Trader Joe's, so this is a tough one for me to narrow it down. I think their chocolate molten lava cakes. They look fancy and taste just like a restaurant... and you can MICROWAVE them in one minute. They're indulgent but worth the calories!

Beauty product you should know about:
I talked a little about this brow powder on snapchat last week, but it's literally the best brow product I've ever used. I actually got it as a suggestion from several readers!

Charitable organization on my radar:
You can see all of my picks, here. I included this question because I'm always happy to share information about really amazing charitable causes and I also like to keep a running list so I can update my post whenever necessary!

I don't normally answer these, but I loved your questions! Can't wait to see some of the responses.

FYI the recipe question wasn't working (required the input to be a valid email address)

Why does it ask for an email address for Favorite Healthy Recipe???

My answer is my altered version 'Forks over Knives' Spinach Potato Tacos.
