Stylish Blogger Award

It's Monday already?! Last week Heather from Blonde...Undercover Blonde awarded me with the Stylish Blogger Award! I'm so flattered to have it passed along to me.

Here are 7 facts about moi...

Total Britney Live 2001
Britney Spear's #1 fan right here! I can't wait for her new album. When I was a sophomore in high school I won a "Dress like Britney" contest on an MTV special Total Britney Live. You can watch the segment on YouTube here. Please keep in mind this was almost 10 years ago! My partner David and I went for a look that we thought Brit might wear on a Rolling Stone cover. We included a pink collar in our ensemble, "old school 'hit me', new school Britney."


Generally speaking, I am not an impulsive shopper (unlike Heather hehe). If I see something I like I'll take a few days to think about it before purchasing and check it out online, unless of course it's a one-of-a-kind or limited in quantity. Sites like Rue La La make this hard for me. I can't make up my mind quick enough. Libras like to weigh their options!


I loveeeeeeee seafood! Pictured here is my most memorable seafood dish - Zuppa di Pesce for two from Jimmy Seas Pan Pasta in Oak Bluffs on the Vineyard. Lobster, shrimp, mussels, littleneck clams, calamari and scallops in red sauce over linguini. (Surprisingly yes, there is pasta under all that seafood.) Yum!


I'm a beginning golfer, the boyfriend has been my coach. I can't wait to get out and play this spring.


Abercrombie 8 Perfume $50

I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch in high school. I laugh when I see tourists lined up outside their 5th Avenue store now. Can't say that I have shopped there for clothes in many years, but I still love Abercrombie 8 Perfume!


As I've mentioned in a previous post, I interned for an accessories editor at a national bridal magazine in the city. My desk was in the beauty closet, I was surrounded by hundreds of products! Since then I have loved wedding details from the veil to the shoes.


I have Southern roots. My mom is from North Carolina, a proud Tar Heel who hasn't lost her Southern drawl living up North. My father is a Yankee but went to school down South at University of Kentucky.

I pass the award along to...

Kelli & Lisa @ Bud & Leo
Elizabeth @ Have Your Cake And Eat It Too
Lauren @ Lifestyles of the Rich {at Heart} and Not So Famous!
Abby @ Simply Shea Designs



  1. This is adorable! Loved Britney back in the day, and actually every time she releases a new album. Abercrombie smelling anything is just yummmm! My boyfriend also, is an avid golfer, and I am definitely not. We belong to a country club that makes it impossible not to learn eventually, so I am right with you on the beginner!

    Sounds like you have accomplished a lot already! I definitely think you deserve this award! Have a great Monday!

  2. How fun that you won that! I was on TRL in 2001 too during the summer in Key West. I was there to be on a gameshow called Sink or Swim on which I was one of the winners. I went on Youtube to see if I could find video of me, but no go... Great post!

  3. congrats on the award! I've been thinking of taking up golf ... I'm not sure that hubs has the patience to teach me though! Serious lack of coordination here!

    Lauren @ tickled.
