What’s your favorite beauty secret?
What’s your favorite go-to outfit for a quick polished look?
High Waste Skinny Jeans in a dark wash or black. I love the brand Mother. Then, a solid colored blouse and a classic, yet with a bit of a wink at whimsy, shoes like these by Sonia Rykiel.
What’s your favorite quick-prep dinner for your family?
I have celiac disease, which means I'm gluten free..for real. I love Trader Joe's brown rice pasta, so a go-to meal is grilled chicken with some fresh peppers tossed in a pesto sauce with the pasta. Then, maybe a side salad. The whole thing takes 20-30 minutes beginning to end to make, which fits my schedule perfectly.
Tell us your favorite at-home date night.
Try out a fun and perhaps a bit challenging recipe, where I'm the Sous Chef. I'll chop and mince whatever needs done while sipping wine, snacking and "supervising" the rest of the meal.
Tell us your favorite Instagram account to follow and why?
I'm a bit biased but I really do love following @graymalin, I also enjoy my dear friend and talented blogger Jordan of @ramshackleglam for recipes, DIY tips and general lifestyle shares, then lastly, I am kind of obsessed with @thedogist because...dogs.
What tradition or routine is important to you?
It's simple but I think it's important to always make your bed. Even if everything else is a bit scattered from the week, having the bed made somehow makes me feel like I'm not a total mess!
What’s in your purse?
Wallet, Cell, Keys, Burts Bees Chapstick, and a few random lipsticks and glosses. Specifically, I've been enjoying a flashback to my high school days with the reentry of Black Honey by Clinque for the lips...dating myself there!
What’s your favorite on-the-go lunch during a busy day?
Brown Rice - Trader Joe's has great 3 minute microwave bags, turkey meat, chopped tomatoes, & avocado. This is assuming I remember to have lunch, sometimes the day just flies and I look up and it's well into the afternoon.
What can you not leave home without?
My cell phone. I'm addicted. I admit it.
