11 Questions Catherine gave me…
1) How would you describe your personal style? I would say my style is effortless. I try to do simple pieces and not think too much about it. I own ALOT of black and basics. Things that make it easy to wear with different pieces, such as Minnetonka fringe boots, or a leopard cardigan.
2) Where is your favorite place to shop? That changes with the wind. Places I ooze over and just lovingly lust over their products would be Sephora, & Anthropologie. The places that I find most of my everyday looks would be Target, Forever 21, and Old Navy. Have you noticed I can’t just give a one-word answer?
3) What fashion/beauty related item can you not live without and why? I love my LaMer wrap watch, it’s worn grey leather with chains. I throw it on with almost everything.
4) What piece of clothing makes you feel most attractive and why? I always feel super slender in my maxi skirts. I have a black one and a black/white stripe one. I’m a curvy girl and I feel like they show my curves in a flattering way.
5) What is your number one beauty secret? Me…Beauty Secret? I can’t really say that I have one. I am pretty faithful to brands and even though I like to try things I stick with what I like and know. With that being said, something I’ve stuck with for years is that I wash my face with bar Dove soap. It’s mild and gentle for my skin and keeps it clear.
6) How do you wear your hair when in a hurry and short on time? High buns and braids are my friends. My hair is long though, and holds curls pretty well, so sometimes I can run my fingers through it, freshen up with some hairspray and my curls are just wavy enough to look like I fixed it.
7) Who is your favorite musician and why? I’ve never ever been good with answering questions about music. I don’t really say that I have a particular genre or type. I have always loved really calming music, and The Civil Wars does just that for me these days. All of their music is perfection.
8) If you could play any instrument what would it be and why? I think I would have to choose the piano. It’s soothing. I would love to be able to play while my husband sings. He has an amazing voice.
9) If crafting was your career what item or items would you make to sell? Lately I’ve done a lot with window panes. I think I would expand to more re-purposing and would love to do furniture.
10) How would you describe your home decorating style? I love things that have a story or look old, but I also love to tie in warm, cozy and inviting new things. I have an appreciation for natural woods and rustic things without looking like I live in a cabin. ;)
11) If you had an unlimited budget, what location would you choose for a week of vacation and why? My husband I have always talked about going to Australia. It's sort of our dream vacation...one day! :)
