1. Favorite Film? It's a tie between That Thing You Do and Garden State. I grew up watching That Thing You Do on repeat. I can recite every word and it still makes me laugh every time. Faye is my role model. I fell in love with Garden State as a wistful 16-year-old and I've never fallen out of love with it.
2. Go-to-libation?  WINE! And Prosecco.
3. What's on the blog roll?  Amy Merrick of An Apple a Day is a goddess. I can't get enough of her dreamy stories and photos. I also love Joy the Baker. Reading her blog always results in me A) giggling and B) baking something yummy.
4. Favorite day of the year? Christmas Eve. My mom throws a big, beautiful, party with all of our friends and family. It always feels so special and cozy.
5. Favorite destination?  My family's little beach cottage on the coast of North Carolina. It feels more like home than any home I've ever had.
6. What album are you listening to right now?  I can't get enough of Beirut's new album "The Rip Tide."
7. Smell you can't live without?  I really like the smell of sunscreen, but I could probably live without it. Also, lavender.
8. Favorite Book?  Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer. It's a heart-wrenching, hilarious, poignant book that left a lasting impression on me.
9. Favorite Food?  I think I could live on strawberries and/or truffle fries and/or caramel salted ice cream. And I can't leave out cheese...
10. Fashion favorites? Touches of lace, cropped sweaters, anything cream colored, boyish jackets, simple lines, high-waists, nude flats.
11. Favorite person? All the people in my life are pretty great. I'm a lucky girl.
