Habitually Chic Questions

I found this set of questions on one of my favorite blogs, Habitually Chic.

1. Favorite book?
My Horizontal Life: A Collection of One Night Stands by Chelsea Handler

2. Who’s your dream client?
Well, this question doesn't apply to me very well.

3. iPhone or BlackBerry?
I have a BlackBerry that has needed to be fixed for months. I'm thinking of switching to the iPhone now that it's with Verizon.

4. Favorite color?
To wear- royal blue. To see/decorate with- pale pink.

5. Favorite place in NYC?
I've never been- I'd like to go in the fall. I have friends from there who say I'm a SoHo type.

6. Person you wish was on Twitter?
Gerard Butler or Sidney Crosby!

7. Favorite film?
I have plenty but one that I'll always be up to watch is Clueless.

8. Diet Coke or coffee?
I gave up Diet Coke for Lent (I drink a lot of it)- so far, so good! I don't like coffee.

9. Favorite scented candle?
It depends on my mood or the season but vanilla or lavender is always nice.

10. Do you have pre-show ritual?
Again, this one doesn't really apply to me. I don't really have any rituals. I'm not OCD.

11. Favorite artist?
John William Waterhouse or any of the other Pre-Raphaelites. They loved redheads.

12. What’s on your iPod?
Where's my iPod would be the better question. If I could send the songs in my head to my device, "Big Jet Plane" by Lady of the Sunshine would be towards the top.

13. Early bird or night owl?
110% night owl. I've always been this way. I get all my creativity in the evening or after midnight. I just love the difference in energy that the night brings.

14. Favorite flower?
I like cream and pale pink roses as well as hydrangeas.

15. What websites do you read daily?
Dlisted.com, Facebook, Twitter

16. What do you think is chic?
Less is more. Pairing classic staples with a trend or two that really works for the individual. Pashminas and aviators, riding boots, black, brown/cognac, pearls, Chanel 2.55 bags, vintage pieces... personality that shines through personal style. As for decor- I'm all about antiques and the shabby chic look.

17. Favorite comfort food?
The official "worst food in America"- Outback Cheese Fries with their amazing ranch dip. My mouth is watering just thinking about how sinfully delicious they are. If I lived closer to Outback, I'd be in major trouble.

18. Subway or taxi?
When I was younger, I used to take the subway to the suburban mall south of Pittsburgh (under normal circumstances, we went to the one in the North). My mom doesn't drive, so when my Dad was at work, it was my only way to get my shopping fix. I take cabs ocassionally but neither very often. Pittsburgh is lacking in the cab department.

19. Favorite city?
I haven't been fortunate to travel much. I will hopefully see many places in the future. One of the few places that I have been, I really liked- New Orleans. I couldn't imagine living there, though! The weather was perfect when I was there but 80s, 90s, 100s + humidity throughout a lot of the year is not something that I would like! I think Paris, Rome and Dublin would be a lot of fun. This reminds me, I need to write my pen-pal from Germany a letter!

20. Favorite quote?
"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams."
-Eleanor Roosevelt

Elizabeth Taylor, whose younger looks remind me of my mother's, passed away today. Here is one of her quotes that I love:
"I believe in mind over matter, and doing anything you set your mind on."

I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
