Five on Friday ~ 2.7.14

Friday, February 7, 2014
I love posts where I get to learn more about the ladies behind my favorite blogs, so I thought I would jump on the bandwagon and do an "About Me" post for this version of Five on Friday!

(1) My favorite color is white. If it was realistic (which it totally isn't - especially with a dog), I would decorate my entire house like a white modern photo you see in Dwell magazine with barely anything out - I love the minimalist look.


(2) My dad is American and my mum is Scottish. Because of this, and a random law that existed the year I was born, I have dual citizenship with both countries. I'd love to get a Scottish passport one day, but apparently it's quite expensive, so that will have to wait for now.

(3) I have a younger sister named Allison. We are complete opposites, but the best of friends.  This makes me so happy because there was a time (during my early college years) when we did not get along at all and barely spoke. I am the typical first-child, business-minded, MBA seeking...and she is the amazing artist, who is getting her masters in Art History (focus on modern art) AND once shaved her head to get a tattoo on her skull. Haha - I told you, total opposites.

Throwbacks! (wayy back)

(4) The love of my life is 11 years older than me.
Actually, apart from my 2 best friends from highschool, all of my closets friends are between 5-20 years older than me - I've always been a old soul.

(5) I have a tiny nose piercing that I got when I was 19 years old. I don't regret it at all and I want to keep it in forever :) But it hurt so badly that if it ever closed up, I don't think I'd re-pierce it. I've had it so long now that I think I look weird without it in.

Well, I think that's enough for now! Hope you all have a relaxing weekend! xx


  1. I love an all white house too. My husband would die so I'll just to have to stick with an all white guest room! That's so awesome you have dual citizenship!

  2. I love all white too! Lately I've been obsessed with gray everything too-- such easy colors to add pops of color and change up without having to change very much :) Also you're gorgeous! Happy Friday!

  3. Oh my gosh such polar opposites right?? Mark is 7 years older than me...we play the game sometimes when an older song comes on what grade in school he was in.....I love his HS ones...I'm like yeah I was in second grade or whatever ;-)

    Meet @ the Barre

  4. That is so awesome you have dual citizenship! You must take advantage of that! I am also a huge fan of white, David calls me the "Ice Queen" because he said I want to turn everything white!

  5. Love the all-white home, but yes, only in my dreams, too. Too funny about you and your sister, but at least y'all are close now. Have a great weekend! XO

  6. Visiting from the link up. I LOVE white, too. Most people like color but I prefer white.

  7. Love these about me posts! I would LOVE to have an all white bedroom but sadly, it's just not practical. I guess the only plus would be that you could bleach everything! Have a great weekend :)

  8. I love this! That is so crazy about your sister getting a tattoo on her head! I'd die! Lol. I'm with your on #5! I got hammered in Mexico when I was 17 on spring break and got my nose pierced and it hurt soooo bad but I loved it! Unfortunately I don't have it anymore, stupid me! Visiting Scotland would be amazing! You should definitely put that on your bucket list!!!!

  9. Those first home pics are so dreamy. I love how bright those rooms are! Hope you had a great weekend!

  10. I love white, however I'm so clumsy I'd spill things everywhere and ruin the whole place. It's the very reason why I'm having an anxiety attack over wearing my wedding dress. No red wine for this one! Haha.

  11. I LOVE all of those white home pictures! Eventually, we're going to redo our kitchen in all-white.
