Getting to Know Me
I never leave the house without lipstick: (I wrote an entire blog post about what’s in my bag at all times, which includes my favorite lipsticks!) Because let’s face it I’m a girl’s girl who strongly believes lipstick is the holy grail of make-up. I grew up with three brothers.... so I am tough, love to be outdoors, and can be a total ball-buster! However, I love the sparkle and lipstick side of me. In today’s world a girl doesn’t have to choose and can be both sequins and athletic and I just love that!
My favorite season is fall: September, October and even early November are just amazing to me in the Northeast. The crisp cool air, leaves changing, wearing a sweater without a jacket, breaking out the boots for the first time, all things related to apples and pumpkins, football….I love it all so much.
My go-to coffee drink is an almond milk latte (iced in warmer months): When I’m at home I make a Nespresso with coconut creamer and Truvia. But my favorite coffee is in Europe….something about their coffee with their cream is just pure magic and somehow, we cannot duplicate it in the states.
The second car I would love to own as a bum around town car would be a Jeep Wagoneer. A navy one! My dad had a Wagoneer as a kid and I loved that car! I don’t know why but forever this has been my 2nd car crush. I have always pictured having a home, or even a second home, some place in the Northeast and driving this car around on the weekends. (My 3rd car would be a Dylan McKay Porsche)
For my last meal I would have my mom’s stuffed shells and meatballs covered in sauce: My mom didn’t grow up Italian, but she married an Italian and my dad’s mom was the most amazing cook. But I would put my mom’s sauce and meatballs up there with anyone’s. She has perfected her Italian cooking and has embraced the tastes that were so important to my dad. One of my favorite things as a kid was waking up to the smell of garlic on Sundays.
The thing that makes me the happiest in the world is traveling (excluding loved ones and Jesus, of course): Doesn’t have to be fancy; could be a 2-hour road trip to the country I just love exploring and checking out new places and cultures and meeting new people.
My favorite place I’ve ever traveled to is Positano Italy: I love so many places I have been I always go back to Positano as my favorite. I traveled there with my mom when I was 25 years old and it was my first trip to Europe. I have been blessed to experience some of the great travels of my life with my mother and am forever grateful for the memories we made.
The most beautiful city in the world, to me, is Paris: Although I am a New Yorker at heart (and it’s my forever favorite city in the world) Paris has a piece of my heart. I have traveled there more than any other place overseas and I can never get enough.
Although I love the beach I would take mountains over beach… HOWEVER my favorite combination on earth is when the two collide and you have a beautiful ocean surrounded by mountains: I am obsessed with the beach, but the mountains speak to my heart in a different way. And I adore the mountains all year long. They are amazing in the summer, stunning in the fall with all the colors, and I love to ski. I also feel so alive in the mountains and people in the mountains are always to active and full of life and that inspires me.
My number one bucket list trip is to Asia (Japan, Maldives, Thailand, and Hong Kong are at the top of that trip): Asian is a culture that fascinates me and although there are so many places in this world I still wish to see, Asian is at the top of my list. The Maldives are my dream Honeymoon destination, Japan is a place I want to visit in the spring with the beautiful gardens but have also heard that skiing there is a whole other level. I have been dying to go to Thailand ever since Bridget Jones’ Diary (minus the drug and prison part of course) and from a city perspective Hong Kong to be is just a must experience.
