C's Fun Facts
1. I'm a new nail polish addict, and now I can't stop researching and buying them!
2. My favorite fragrance is Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh.
3. My mom is my best friend. We talk all the time, and we have such similar personalities.
4. I really want to visit Greece and Italy.
5. I love patterns. My top three favorites: chevron, stripes, and cheetah! (in moderation, of course!)
6. Spelling is one of my hidden talents! However, there are two words that are impossible for me to spell: necessary and etiquette.
7. I'm absolutely fascinated with Grace Kelly.
8. I don't enjoy public speaking, at all. I'm getting a lot better at it, but I still get nervous every single time.
9. I'm very German and Irish.
10. I am super picky with my laptop's desktop organization. It has to be a certain way, and I change my background on the daily. Right now, It's a picture from Paris!
11. People tend to mix my sister and I up, a lot. We get asked if we're twins almost every time we are out together!

A's Fun Facts
1. I'm Irish, Italian, and a bit English. 
2. I am distantly related to William Penn (the founder of Pennsylvania), hence the reason behind the naming of my dog, William Penn. 
3. I can recite the movie 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' word for word. I think Audrey Hepburn was a true beauty. 
4. I've spent every summer since I was born in Watch Hill, RI. New England has my heart. 
5. I have a large interest in public policy and law and will likely study both in college. Subsequently, I've been thinking a lot about law school as of lately. 
6. I overanalyze everything and drive myself crazy over little details. It's frustrating, but I've learned that it can be looked at positively in that everything I do is done with great attention and perfection. (I've totes thought about using this as the answer for that inevitable "What is your greatest weakness?" job interview question.)
7. I have an immense passion for fashion. Awards Season is like heaven for me. I die. 
8. Flora by Gucci and Chanel No. 5. are my two favorite scents. 
9. I never leave the house in sweatpants or without nail polish on my nails. Never. 
10. I check the stocks on the reg. Every year on my birthday, my parents give me money to invest in whatever stocks I chose and I have a ton of fun with it. My friends call me the ibanker in training. 
11. I love art history and admittedly go to art museums during my free time. I'd love to start collecting when I'm older.

We want to tag: anyone who hasn't been tagged! Let us know if you answer these questions below!


  1. I love reading these. You learn so much about fellow bloggers. :)

    C - I'm obsessed with my desktop organization as well. I don't like a lot of clutter on mine. At all. I love the idea of changing the desktop background daily - I may have to try it. Keep things fresh. :)

    A - Absolutely use your attention to details fact on a "greatest weakness" interview question. It does have both negative and positive implications, but the positives definitely outnumber the negatives. My boyfriend actually used that answer to land his first job out of college. Also, I may have to adopt your rule of not leaving the house with no nail polish. Unfortunately I've been guilty of this a number of times.


  2. I swear this isn't the only thing I absorbed from this post, but I love that y'all love Ryan Gosling. Have a great day!!!

  3. Thanks dolls! We love Ryan Gosling, what can we say??
    And Desktop organizers unite, Kristen!!
    Have lovely days!
