What can you not leave home without?
Well, my phone, because when you’re a blogger or Instagrammer, you know you need your phone. And then, lipstick. I’m a lipstick girl, if I don’t have lipstick on I feel dead. I don’t feel cute. I need lipstick on all the time, so you’ll always find my phone and lipstick on me at all times.
What is your go-to magazine?
In Style, for sure. From the time I was in high school, my mom had a subscription to In Style, so it came to our house all of the time. I hoard it. I have issues from 2009 — like stacked. In Style has just been a favorite throughout all seasons of my life.
If you could have lunch with anyone, dead or alive, who would you choose?
Right now, I would choose Alexander Hamilton. Like I said, I’m a total fangirl of this — I started listening to the music and fell in love with it, and I sing it to my kids all of the time now. I’m so intrigued by that, and that era of the revolution. So, yes I would go to lunch with one of our founding fathers Alexander Hamilton.
What’s your go-to Starbucks or coffee drink?
I actually don’t drink coffee, believe it or not. All of my friends are like ‘how do you survive in the morning without coffee?’ But I don’t know what I’m missing because I’ve never tried it. My go-to is hot chocolate and it’s so bad because it’s so many calories, and I love the whipped cream on it. Especially when I’m pregnant, I crave that stuff. You’ll catch me in July in 90-degree heat, and I’ll be drinking hot chocolate. So that’s my go-to morning treat.
What’s your favorite show to binge-watch?
Suits, okay, it’s on the USA Network and I love it because it’s a show you’re going to like and your husband or boyfriend will like too. It’s a good guy and girl show, and Meghan the actress is dating Prince Harry, so it’s fun to see their relationship and to watch the show she’s on. I want to quit blogging and move to New York to become a corporate lawyer because of it. There’s like six seasons, so you can gear yourself up and get food, and just binge watch it. Suits is for sure my number one. All of my friends I’ve recommended it to have fallen in love with it.
You do some cool stuff with interior design, do you have a favorite DIY hack?
The 3M command hooks. I love to decorate my house for Christmas and the 3M command hooks save my life. If you’re trying to put up a garland or wreath, I always use the 3M command hooks. I also like to entertain a lot. I just had my little boy’s blessing and I had everyone come over to my house, so I wanted to do this really pretty centerpiece, and we had this gorgeous garland hanging off the marble countertop and I couldn’t figure out how to drape this garland, and the 3M command hooks saved my life. Even if you’re just wanting to put up a picture frame, the command hooks, and the heavy duty ones are a really great way to hang things.
