In thinking about what to write today, Kristen provided an excellent exercise for me. No, it’s not cheating.
Where do you live: The Great White North. OK. Not really. I do live where there is a high population of Mormons…
Favorite art: Monet, DaVinci, Rembrandt
Pets: None. We are allergic. *Cough cough*
Favorite neighborhood restaurant: Um, we live by the tracks. (Literally.) Enough said.
Favorite cocktail: Since I don’t drink, how about my favorite soda? Dr. Pepper.
Who inspires you: My husband, all moms, and people who work for non-profit Hispanic agencies
Necessary extravagance: Aerobics (does that count? We’re going through budget cuts in our household and this happens to be free for me.)
Favorite place in the world: Wrapped up in my husband’s arms watching (and inevitably falling asleep to) a good movie (so cheesy but so true)
Designer: Banana Republic, Gap
Jeans: I haven’t bought a new pair of jeans since I was in high school. No kidding.
Underwear: 100% cotton
Watch: My microwave and computer.
T-shirt: Gap/Banana Republic T-shirts in dark purples, pinks, and greens
Day bag: Truthfully? (Don’t laugh.) I use those reusable grocery bags to cart my kid’s stuff, and my coat pockets to carry my stuff.
Evening bag: My husband’s trouser’s pockets
Favorite city to shop: Anywhere that has outlets/discount stores. Right now? Park City
Lipstick: Does chap stick count? Um…Vaseline brand stuff.
Mascara: Right now, Maybelline’s Colossal Volume
Shampoo: I change shampoos each time I’m at the hair supply store, but currently I am using Naturelle Aura daily shampoo
Moisturizer: Oil of Olay
Perfume: Tommy Girl
Soap: The cheapest body wash at the store
Nail-polish color: I haven’t painted my nails in years (not even for my wedding)
Who cuts your hair: Right now, it’s my downstairs neighbor. She is amazing. Plus, she’s from Mexico so I am able to practice my Spanish with her.
Who colors your hair: Whoever I am placed with at Paul Mitchell School of Beauty
Feel free to play along! I would love to see how you answer.
