Remember when I posted 10 Fun Facts About Me back in the summer? That blog post was so fun to shoot and write—and not just because I was drinking wine in my pajamas and got to call it “working.” I thought it would be fun to try a quick Q&A this time. Okay let’s do this! PS- I won’t judge you if you’re the one drinking in your jammies this time.

Most worn item in your closet?  It’s a tie between this Paris T-shirt and anything striped.

Favorite people to follow on Instagram?  @jenniferlake, @laurenswells, @amberfillerup, @livvylandblog, @ellabrooksblog, @kattanita and many more talented ladies!

Currently reading?  The Subtle Art Of Not Giving A F*ck by Mark Manson.

Favorite color?  Have we never met before? PINK ALL DAY EVERRRRYDAY.

Dream travel destinations?  Paris, Greece, Italy and Charleston.

Favorite indulgence?  drybar and Flamin’ Hot Cheetos (not necessarily at the same time).

What were you like as a kid?  Loud and bossy. Not much has changed.

Go-to meal?  Wine and cheese.

Red or white?  What kind of question is that? White. And make it a Chardonnay.

Most-used emoji?  The sassy salsa-dancing lady.

Best Halloween costume you’ve ever worn?  The Cookie Monster or Brunette Barbie.

First thing you thought of when you woke up this morning?  Coffee. And did I really fall asleep watching The Girlfriend’s Guide To Divorce again?

Favorite leftover food?  Cold Chinese is the best breakfast food on the planet. So much better the morning after—especially if it’s still in the carton.

Who would you die to go shopping with?  Blake Lively. Can Ryan drive?

Are you allergic to anything?  No, but I hate mushrooms with a passion.

Favorite holiday?  Anyone’s birthday. I am a HUGE birthday person.

Last person you texted?  My mom.

Hostess/entertaining philosophy?  Ply ‘em with wine and they’ll think you’re a good cook.

Best part of moving back to LA?  My family and frequent runs to Ivy At The Shore for red velvet cake.

Worst part of moving back to LA?  Missing my boyfriend, friends and NorthPark Mall.

Must-have beauty product?  Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara. It’s brilliant.

Last thing that made you cry?  The latest episode of Suits where Harvey reconnects with his mother.

Is food in bed a yes or big no no?  Yes but my boyfriend makes me eat on the foot of his bed because of several unfortunate spilling situations (wine, coffee, you name it- I’ve spilled it. Oops?)

Have you ever been fired?  Yes, my flute teacher fired me in the 6th grade. I was really so bad, she couldn’t even bear to take my money.

What about double-dipping?  Ew no. Keep your germs to yourself and off my snacks.

What was the name of your first pet?  We had a goldfish named Fluffy. RIP Fluffy.

What can’t you leave the house without?  My cell (rocking the cutest new sushi case!), Burt’s Bees and my glasses.

How do you like your pizza?  Just cheese with red pepper flakes and Ranch.

Workout routine?  I bitch and moan until I get my ass to the gym.

Favorite nickname?  My aunt calls me Cookie.
