Yesterday I was so excited to see that I was given the Sugar Doll Blogger Award by Persians & Pulitzer! Thank You! Upon receiving this award- i am supposed to share 10 things you don't know about me with my readers, so here it is:
1. I am a only child.
2. I own over 65 pairs of shoes & 75 + handbags, I know its a problem.
3. I had a run in with Leighton Meester from gossip girl, and she snubbed me.
4.Touring Lilly Pulitzer headquarters last year has been one of the most amazing experiences i have had , i still talk about it, my mother still rolls her eyes.
5. I feel completely relaxed only when I'm shopping- its my release.
6. My car is monogramed.
7.One of my life goals is to own a Hermes Birkin bag.
8. Nick Cannon is the nicest celebrity i have ever met, met him during the filming of Nickelodeon's Halo Awards.
9. I wore a backbrace for 3 years for Scoliosis , going through this illness was the hardest thing i ever had to do. Not only am i fighter, but a survivor.
10. I hate to fly, totally freaks me out- something im working on, i love to travel.


  1. What a neat experience to get to know your friend. I love having friends from other places in the world--we can learn so much from each other!
    Love the giveaway. I'm following you!
    My current favorite "go-to" summer outfit is my favorite pair of denim capris, either my pink or green Lilly P polo, and flip flops. Easy, always looks crisp/fresh (even in hot TX weather).

  2. Just started following the blog :) Love the Giveaways. My favorite summer outfit this year is a blue dress from Banana Republic with white embroidery. It is cute and girly yet appropriate for my job in a law firm. And because it is light, cotton, and not too tight fitting it keeps me nice and cool in the middle of the current HEATWAVE.

  3. Great giveaway, love the juicestand wristlet!
    I just posted about this on my blog as well.
    My go-to summer outfit is a sundress because you can go from day to night in them with a little accessory change. I just bought the reversible Delphina from Lilly in Truly Unruly and Hotty Pink. 2 dresses in 1!!

  4. Thank You - im keeeping track of everyone's entrys xoxoxo
