Getting to Know You

I like to do this every few months, and I thought this would be a great opportunity to learn more about my new blog friends!



Here's how it works:
- comment answering as many or as few questions as you would like
- leave a NEW question for me and other readers in your post
- include your blog link!  What a great opportunity to visit some new blogs :)

Here are the questions:
1. Describe yourself in three words.
2. What is your biggest weakness when shopping?
3. What is your life like outside of blogging - career, family, etc.
4. What is your current obsession?
5. Here's where you ask your wild card question :)

My answers:
1. Describe yourself in three words.  Messy, resilient, bubbly.

2. What is your biggest weakness when shopping?  Dollar aisles & makeup.  My wallet cries just thinking about it.

3. What is your life like outside of blogging - career, family, etc.  I work as a marketing & corporate events coordinator.  I'm not married, but I have a wonderful boyfriend, and we have a dog together - Francis.  My family is wonderful.  I love to try out new wine bars in my spare time.

4. What is your current obsession?  Pink gingham, vintage Levi's, and fringe booties.

5. Here's where you ask your wild card question :)  I can't wait to answer these!

Okay, ya'll... now it's your turn!  I'm so excited for this chance to get to know you :)

XX,

SS

    1. Ahh, so many exciting things going on in your life!! I'm obsessed with tassels & florals, as well :)

      My favorite Lilly print of all time is Skinny Dippin'! It was the print of my first Lilly dress, and I get more compliments on that shift than probably on any other piece of clothing that I own!

    1. Classic is the perfect word to describe you! I'm obsessed with the cashmere scarf that you gave me!

      If I had to pay for it myself, probably J.Crew. I know there are enough pieces in there that fit me properly that I would survive. If budget wasn't an issue, Lilly Pulitzer or Diane von Furstenburg! I wouldn't be sad about wearing a DVF wrap dress every day ;)

  10. Hmmm. Ok, here goes!
    1. Introvert. Creative. Bubbly.
    2. Shoes. Dog toys. Clothing in general.
    3. Life lately has been pretty uneventful. I wish it would pick up though. I'd love it be more carefree.
    4. Currently obsessed with thunder storms. It's transitioning to autumn/fall and with a bunch of humid weather hanging around I keep checking the radar for signs of storms lol. More so than lately anyway. I guess all that rabble and noise equates to something exciting in my life right now. Which is pretty sad when you think about it. :o|
    5. The first thing that pops into your head is...

    1. Thank you! :) Oooh, those KS sales will get ya every time ;) I am yet to purchase a piece of Kendra... It's all so cute!!

      My boyfriend and I met when he owned a clothing company. He was looking for promoters, and I had experience with promotion and was looking to oversee the promoter program. Emails turned into calls and texts, and we were dating soon after!

  13. After you linked through to why you chose 'resilient' as one of the words to describe yourself, I read your story and just wanted to say how incredible you are for getting through that and then continuing to share your story! :)

    Okay, so my answers...

    1. Describe yourself in three words: honest, optimistic and gentle

    2. What is your biggest weakness when shopping? lingerie!

    3. What is your life like outside of blogging - career, family, etc. It's okay, although I'm massively looking forward to the warmer weather haha :)

    4. What is your current obsession? Nude nail varnish and 'Two Week's by FKA Twigs!

    5. Okay, my wild card question is if you had to move to another country and never return, which would it be and why?

    1. Aww, thank you so much for taking the time to read it!! You are so sweet :)

      If I had to move to another country, I would choose either Mexico, Switzerland, or Germany. Everyone always talks about how travelling to a certain location changed them, and Mexico definitely changed me. I went there over Christmas to visit family, and it was just unreal. I've never felt so loved and welcomed by people I've never met. Switzerland and Germany have been my favorite traveling experiences aside from Mexico!

  14. Oooh, this looks fun!

    4. Friends. (I have almost finished the entire series on Netflix.)

    5. How did you start blogging? Do you have any advice for new bloggers?

    1. I am a sucker for clearance bins & re-sell sites, as well!!

      I started blogging as something to keep me busy while I was in an LDR! My advice is to actively engage with other bloggers - go leave nice comments and read other blogs for inspiration. Also, giving credit to others when credit is due! Best of luck! Xo
