Meal? If I could eat coq au vin, mashed potatoes, and French bread every day without turning into a heifer, I so would. Otherwise, I love a beautifully seared filet mignon and charred vegetables (especially sweet onions, zucchini, and red bell peppers).
Alcoholic beverage? Champagne, pinot noir, Riesling, or a top shelf Cosmo with real lime.
Dessert? Crème brulee or birthday cake with buttercream frosting. But the cake has to have been in the fridge for a while and eaten cold. Otherwise I won’t eat it, because apparently I’m a weirdo, lol.
Article of clothing in your closet? This is hard! My top three would include my fuschia silk Marc Jacobs dress with a sweetheart neckline and tiered skirt, my white Betsy Johnson Wink cardigan, and my shiny black Burberry Prorsum coat with ruffled sleeves and a cinched waist.
Pair of shoes? I literally cannot settle on just 1, 2, or 10! PASS. LOL.
Piece of jewelry? My engagement ring, definitely! And I have about a zillion different pairs of chandelier earrings I adore.
Cosmetic(s)? BareMinerals foundation with SPF 15, Chanel crayon eyeliner in Violet Smoke, Chanel lipstick in Coco Pink, Benefit BadGal mascara, and NARS eyeshadow duo in Sugarland.
Boredom killer? Shopping. When I get bored, it’s VERY dangerous.
Website(s)? D-Listed is my guilty pleasure.

Way to treat yourself? Splurging on a full manicure and pedicure, buying new cosmetics, buying hardcover books, spending time in Barnes and Nobles and Starbuck’s just drinking tea and browsing, buying an expensive bouquet of flowers
Quotation? “A prayer for the wild at heart, kept in cages.” – Tennessee Williams
“The best thing to hold onto in life is each other.” – Audrey Hepburn
Thing your significant other does for you? Laughs at all my stupid jokes, pretends to like my terrible attempts at cooking, goes to church with me each Sunday and holds my hand as much as possible, listens to and soothes all my fears, surprises me with fun weekend plans, tells me he loves me before I go to sleep and first thing in the morning when we talk again
Thing you do for him? Make up crazy faces/dances to cheer him up, watch all his scary horror films with him even though I hate them, write him little love letters/emails/texts at random, rub his neck, back, and shoulders, hide candy in his car glove compartment for him to find
OMG I AM SO LONG-WINDED, SORRY! lol this was too much fun, a great way to get my mind off the real world for a while! <333
