11 Facts About myself:
I Love LOVE Luv Halloween
I dislike driving.
I carry a big pocketbook/purse and treat it like a totebag for everything I might need during the day. I throw books, magazines, coupons, shoes and snacks in there + normal things like my wallet, lip gloss & cell phone.
I adore nail polish, own hundreds of bottles, but hardly ever wear it because it only lasts for a day.
My Favorite fragrance has been Dune by Dior for many years. Before that it was Hope by Frances Denney but it is extremely hard to find now. I also like Gucci Play, and Georgio shower gel and Chanel Number 5
I drink water, coffee, tea everyday ... and the occasional alcoholic beverage
I have green eyes
I like to take walks, listen to birds, look at flowers
I keep all my movie ticket stubs and Love throwing out quotes in daily conversation
Bravo Network TV shows are my guilty pleasure and Watch What Happens: Live is my Fav talk show so...

I think I could be happy just about anywhere in the world as long as I have my loved ones close.
4) What is something that always makes you happy?
Nothing is better then hanging out with my girls, pets &/or bffs. But so do tiny things like a leaf or flower, piece of candy. I'm easily amused.
5) What would you do if you won the lottery?
Probably more of the same! And a lot of traveling. There's so many places I'd Love to see, take pictures of and eat some good food. It be awesome to own a little antique store and/or a tea shop especially in an exotic locale.
6) What is something you could eat every day for the rest of your life?
Right away I'd say PIZZA, Love, LOVE, Luv it!
7) Do you prefer living in the city or country (or somewhere in between!) and why?
I've lived in the city and the country. Both have their pluses and minuses. The best part of living in the country is all that beautiful space to explore. But exploring a cool city is also pretty fun.
8) What is your dream vacation?
Any vacation is my dream vacation! Whether it's a trip to the beach, visiting family in another city or state or just a quick trip to the mountains, anytime spent with your Loved ones is a blessing. Big vacations I'm hoping to go on someday are to NYC, San Francisco, Hogwarts, Italy and I'd LOVE to go back to London & Paris.
9) What is your favorite decade or era from the past?
Actually, when i think about it, I like a whole bunch - from the Victorian era through the 1920's, 30's & 40's. I am Nostalgic. Maybe I lived through them in a past life. I've been crazy about swing music since I was a small child and listened to it with my Grampy. Love ragtime, old standards sung by Billy Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald & Sinatra.
10) What is something you like to collect?
I LOVE old things. They are Lovely and more interesting because they have a past. Think about the kid that played with this doll or the lady that washed this dish and served food to her family in it. Beguiling, no? I collect the Jadite dishes my Aunties ate off of, the McCoy pottery & pyrex my mama had. Anything Vintage, retro, you bet! Especially if it is a good price.
11) What is your favorite time of year?
Fall is my Favorite time of year. I Love the cooler weather, the color change in the leaves, upcoming holidays to look forward to including my birthday.
