None that are secret – I can sing, play the piano, and I am a dancer…but everyone knows about that ;)

Fancy pizza from Yellow Brick and high end makeup

6. What should every woman try at least once in their life? 
Traveling – get out and see the world! And a proper makeover :)

7. What makes you laugh? 
My dog, Aaron, and my bestie Roxanne (makes me laugh harder than anyone I’ve ever met...and will kill me for sharing this picture!)

8. What is the one thing people would be surprised to know about you? 
Hmm, don't know if there is anything surprising...I have dual citizen ship with the USA and Scotland, Aaron is 11 years older than me, I was a teacher before transitioning into the business world (I hated teaching) haha!

9. What is on your bucket list? 
 Trips to Greece, Hawaii, and Europe

Vodka, vodka, more vodka

Peaches, spices / seasoning, Sriracha, Keurig, and a big tub of protein (Aaron’s)  

17. What would you never leave home without? 
My iPhone

18. What movie has the greatest ending? 
Ugh this is a hard one…The Goonies, Monty Python and the Holy Grail...although what usually makes a good ending to me is resolution ;) I don't like when movies end unresolved.

19. Who is on the guest list of your ideal dinner party? 
My group of best friends, and if we are throwing celebs in the mix…Jennifer Aniston (I honestly believe we would be bffs ;), SJP, Lenny Kravitz, Coldplay, Ziggy Marley, Jason Bateman, I could go on and on :)

20. What is one thing you wish you had known when you were younger? 
Don’t let a boyfriend hold you back (big mistake I made in college – but you live and learn) and to make better decisions in my undergrad major and once graduating, so I could be further along in my career now (aka go straight to grad school instead of floating for 2 years)!


  1. Love your pics and this q&a! I am a huge Jennifer Aniston fan too!

  2. Bravo is totally my vice, and how funny is this-I have that exact same Buddha statue in my house! Also a big yes to #20-don't let a boyfriend hold you back, I wish I had known that too when I was younger!

  3. I loved reading these questions and answers! The eucalyptus mint candle is so soothing and refreshing! I have one i was going to save for a gift but I think I might pull it out for myself ;) The Goonies does have a pretty awesome ending!!

  4. Oh for the love of high end makeup. It makes my heart happy.

  5. Yes to pizza, makeup, Greece, The Goonies... and many more ha. Loved reading this!

  6. I love these posts!! Love your bucket list for travel destinations! My kinda girl with the vodka!! xo

  7. Online shopping is so my vice and my husband is just about ready to cut me off!!

  8. I love all this! So fun! I completely agree with the travel desires and the vodka upon vodka and the whole lesson learned with not letting a bf hold you back! :) Thanks for sharing!

  9. BRAVO TV - once I start I can't stop. You have dual citizenship?! That is definitely interesting...and also makes sense since you say "mum" ;) hahaha

  10. Oh my goodness, look at the fur-baby! SOOO cute!! :-) I fully believe the full moon plays a much bigger role than everyone thinks. Haha! I love The Goonies, and how it ended! Thanks for sharing all of this.
