Side note: I sang that for an audition in high school once. Got me in the musical.
I’m a fan of the “survey” type meme thingies (boy, am I descriptive) that float around the web, and in taking a mental break and perusing my Google Reader, I happened upon this post from Meg. I think she’s super-cool, though I’ve never met her in person. And she makes fab lists and surveys, so yay. Here’s another one, inspired by fashion magazines. Oh and another PS- she’s Canadian, but I left her spellings of “favourite” because they make me smile. Deal.
Favourite clothing store to shop in? The Gap or Old Navy, but I get a lot from Target too
Favourite brand of jeans, or place to buy jeans? Gap Long and Lean jeans are my favorite. I have wicked long legs!
Favourite brand of shoe (and type of shoe)? I love my Ugg Classic Tall boots, and I love my LL Bean moccasins. Evidently, I love tan suede shoes with shearling lining. I can’t live without my black Reef flip flops in the summer, though!
Favourite brand of handbag? Vera Bradley, I guess… I’m not much into bags
Favourite clothing influence (relative, celebrity, something)? I don’t really have one– if I see something I like in the store or online, I might pick it up.
Favourite brand of running shoe? Asics? I don’t even know what brand my sneakers are!
Favourite accessory (scarves, rings, belts, hats, tiny dogs) and where you find it? I love, love, love my black hat. It’s Marmot, and I bought it at REI to replace an almost identical North Face one I lost I also love my carved leather belt with big-ass belt buckle, which I bought on our vacation in Steamboat upon realizing cowboy boots are freaking EXPENSIVE. My favorite accessory of all, though, is my engagement ring, of course!
Favourite body soap or wash?I usually use Olay bar soap, but I love experimenting. I rarely use the same thing twice in a row.
Favourite fragrance? For me, Vera Wang Princess. For the FI, Ralph Lauren Romance Silver. YUM.
Favourite moisturizer (face)? Neutrogena Daily Moisture or Tinted Moisturizer
Favourite moisturizer (body)? The Body Shop Shea Body Butter. I’m almost out!
Favourite lip balm (see? I made it unisex!)? Chapstick. I like the plain kind and Naturals kinds the best, and I almost always have one on me.
Favourite physical indulgence and where you indulge it (massage, long hot showers, pedicures, facials, etc.)? I take a screaming hot shower every morning (there’s no heat in the bathroom!), but I like to take longer ones at night sometimes. And I loooooove pedis. I’ve never had a massage or a facial, but would love to try.
Favourite place to be/live? I love being home with the FI. Even if he’s not there, it’s just so “us” and comfy. I’d love to give living in Colorado or Vermont a shot.
Favourite place to vacation? Colorado and Key West
Favourite sheets (fabric, thread count, brand if you want)? My jersey sheets in college were soooo comfy. Now I like the striped ones we have that don’t ride up on the bed and fall off.
Favourite architectural style? I like Colonial-style houses, but only if they have a farmer’s porch. I like Art Deco, too, like the Chrysler Building.
Favourite form of lighting (big windows, candlelight, overhead fluorescence)? Millions of enormous windows. I hate not having one right near me at work! Candlelight’s wonderful, though.
Favourite piece of furniture (bed, sofa, bathtub, etc.)? My bed. I love my bed more than a lot of things. At the end of the day, I love sinking into it and snuggling in. You know how much I love snuggling.
Favourite time of year/weather? I love the fall, which is why we’re getting married then, and I loooooove snow. Or bright, cold, sunny days.
BONUS: Your belly:
Favourite beverage: Beer or tea. The beer should be cold, but the tea can be hot or iced.
Favourite ethnic cuisine: Mexican food. Dios mio, me encantan las enchiladas.
Favourite snack food: Chocolate. Cheez-Its are pretty solid, too. Can’t go wrong.
Favourite meal: Brunch is kind of fantastic, but dinner also rocks pretty hardcore. And dessert. Hell, I just love eating.
Favourite breakfast: It definitely depends on the day. I’m a fan of French toast, but I also enjoy some good over-medium eggs with hashbrowns, bacon and toast. I want that for dinner now. Too bad we have neither hashbrowns nor bacon. Sad face.
What about YOU? What are some of your favorite things?
