Tag, You're It

As I mentioned a few days, I was tagged by Marie from Marie a la Mode to come up with my five current loves and to answer 5 questions about myself -- so here it is!

Five things I love right now:





Wedges (I'm amassing quite the collection)




Sequins (who doesn't love a little sparkle?)



Fluevog Boots (specifically the Griffith Park model. My reigning ambition in life right now is to someday own a pair of these. I know, I aim high)





Leopard Print (in all fairness I always love this, it’s not a new thing)




Cameos (I’m crazy for these lately, they’re just so elegant and classic)


Favorite makeup brand?



I actually have three and I can’t really pick a favorite because I get so many products from Avon, Almay, and MAC – I really like the quality of all these lines and they’re cruelty free (which is a priority for me).


Favorite clothing brand?


H&M, with Zara a really close second


Indispensable makeup product?



Wow, this is a tough one – I think I’ll have to go with Almay mascara, I always always always have it on hand and I never leave the house without a quick application


What country would like to visit and why?






I’m an English historian and so any chance I get to travel to England I jump on but two years ago I spent a week in Scotland and I fell in love. It’s my number one vacation destination and I have a secret (okay, it’s not secret anymore) desire to one day live there – the chilly northern climate, rocky landscape, incredibly rich history, and grey stone castles are just my ideal of scenic beauty. Plus I’m a huge bagpipes fan (seriously, I have an album by the Gordon Highlanders on my IPod. Scary, no?).



What is the last concert you've been to?

I’ve been to a few gigs at local Connecticut music spots like The Space and CafĂ© Nine in the last few months and on my recent trip to Canada I saw a friend’s band play but the show I want to mention here was seeing my awesome friend’s band This Is A Standoff perform in London and Brighton this past August. They are an amazingly talented Canadian punk band and just happened to be on a European tour while I was living in England this summer.


I tag Flower Pony, Call me Ishmael, and Penny Dreadful Vintage (totally awesome sauce blog name BTW) if they are so inclined because, ladies, I’ve always wanted to get inside your heads.

I didn't know those make-up brands were cruelty free! Definitely keeping that in mind when I buy a new lipstick.
