More on the Muse


This is based on something else that I found in InStyle Magazine (back in the January 2012 issue) that I thought was pretty cool. It's like my On My Mind posts, but a bit different. The best thing is it's a great way to learn more about me...yay! Feel free to answer any of these questions in your comment too.

The last healthy thing I ate...........................My healthy go-to foods would have to be fruits like peaches, lychees and blackberries right now. I know fruit has a lot of sugar, but that's the best I can do right now. Also, I'm currently in love with Triscuits, but I can't seem to eat just one, so maybe that belongs in the unhealthy category.

The last unhealthy thing I ate.........................Everything! No, really...most likely an Almond Joy or something fried. I tend to go to Asian restaurants and order fried everything (fried rice, fried egg rolls, friend banana & ice cream) with a side of bubble tea.

What I'm currently reading.............................I do a virtual book club with four of my friends who happen to live all over the country (2 in different parts of Florida, one in Virginia and another in Texas). We use Google Hangout to talk about our "goodreads," and we are currently reading a book called Tinkers by Paul Harding. Have you read it?

The last makeup item I put on today............................The answer is almost always lip gloss. More specifically, in this case, the last makeup item would be elf super gloss lip shine in goddess. I put this gloss on over my chap stick, and I just can't get enough.

Last impractical shoes I bought..............................Now, these Badgley Mischka Lanah sandals are impractical not because I don't like them (which I do) or that they are terrible (which they aren't), but because they aren't the most comfortable shoes in the world. It really doesn't matter because I was buying them either way, especially at 75% off at DSW. These shoes are just par for the fashion course. 

The newest piece in my closet..............................Not counting the Badgley Mischka shoes, my newest piece that you haven't seen is this Passementarie trim poplin dress by eShakti that I won from a giveaway.

Most favorite red carpet look in 2012..............................There were a lot of great looks for the 2012 Oscars, but the one that was most memorable to me had to be Gwyneth Paltrow in the cape dress by Tom Ford. I know you muses will remember this dress as well--it just stands out for all the right reasons.
