    1. My mom would praise you for the “bad grammar and spelling errors” comment, Becca! Every now and then she catches them in my posts (often as a result of late night blogging!) and she’ll email me to promptly fix it 🙂 I used to LOVE 30 rock so I should revisit. Remember when that and Parks & Rec was on and NBC TV was so good!? Thanks so much for your comment – adore the name of your blog by the way!

  2. Least favorite thing about blogs – I wish that people commented and engaged the way they did a few years ago.

    Favorite things – Discovering new books, beauty products and even things in NYC from bloggers like you.

    TV Show – I’m loving This is Us

    1. Totally agree about the comments! Commenting seems like it is only on Insta these days but it’s why I love fun little activities like this to get to know everyone better 🙂 And I LOVE This Is Us, too! So glad it was renewed for two more years. Have a great rest of your week, Ash!

  3. What’s at the top of your wish list right now? a great neutral handbag

    What’s your favorite thing about reading blogs? the feeling of hanging out with distant friends and getting a glimpse into their daily lives. Not to mention the outfit inspirations!

    If you could travel anywhere this year, where would it be? Bahamas (again!)

    Current guilty pleasure? Trader Joe’s mini churros!

    What TV show are you watching right now? Seinfeld. I just can’t quit it 😉

    Favorite people to follow on Instagram? @obviousbutamazing, @walkinwonderland, @natalieborton, @wolfgang2242

    1. I don’t follow any of these INstagrammers so naturally am looking them up right now! Also: I didn’t watch Seinfeld until only a couple years ago – man, was I missing out! So glad you commented, Lora & also need to try these mini churros stat!

  4. What’s at the top of your wish list right now?
    A luxury spa day!

    What’s your favorite thing about reading blogs?
    learning about new beauty, fitness and health ideas!

    Least favorite?
    A lot of bloggers repeat the same partnerships and it seems tacky! Not EVERYONE can enjoy the same thing that much!

    If you could travel anywhere this year, where would it be?
    Thailand (hopefully the food is even better there)!

    Current guilty pleasure?
    sheet masks

    What TV show are you watching right now?

    Favorite people to follow on Instagram?

    1. Oh I am dying to go to Thailand!! And you and I are on the same page with sheet masks – I love them! If you have any favorites I’d love to hear them 🙂

  5. What’s at the top of your wish list right now? Warmer weather! I’m ready for patio season.

    What’s your favorite thing about reading blogs? Feeling like you’re chatting with a friend. It’s so much more personal than reading a magazine.

    Least favorite? It’s becoming a bit too curated.

    If you could travel anywhere this year, where would it be? I’d like to go to the Amalfi Coast.

    Current guilty pleasure? The Bachelor and cheezits

    What TV show are you watching right now? See above, plus This Is Us. And I just finished Season 5 of Veep – so, so funny.

    Favorite people to follow on Instagram? @lizadams, @thegoldengirlblog, @Kristarobertso, @lemonstripes

    1. Oh my gosh I FLEW through Veep last year. I LOVE that show and can’t wait for it to come back! And right there with you on patio season – with a glass of rose, no doubt 😉 Thanks so much for commenting, Caitlin!

  6. What’s at the top of your wish list right now? I really want these blush Nikes (https://www.net-a-porter.com/us/en/product/805772) that will hopefully be restocked soon! They’re all I can think about, shopping wise! I’m also so ready to start buying dresses and summer clothes again. Beyond over sweaters!

    What’s your favorite thing about reading blogs? Feeling like you “know” the person on the other side of the screen — it makes things like product recommendations feel so much more personal/legitimate. I also love the outfits, travel guides + hearing about people’s career paths.

    Least favorite? Grammatical and spelling mistakes. When I see people that don’t know the difference between words like “role” and “roll” it drives me a little crazy. I understand it happens on occasion but sometimes it’s too much!

    Current guilty pleasure? Grilled cheese and cheese dips. (See a pattern here?)

    If you could travel anywhere this year, where would it be? I’ve always wanted to visit Russia!

    What TV show are you watching right now? Really want to start Victoria, and currently finishing American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson (SO GOOD.)

    1. I have so much to reply! Those blush nikes are a dream and the people v. oj is indeed SO good. I was riveted by it.And I adore lauren wells too on Insta – good addition! Going to follow sophie now, too! Thanks, Diana – always love your comments 🙂

    Summery, flirty dresses – one, I’m sick of winter and snow, and two, I want to start prepping for my April trip to Hawaii and summer wedding events!

    What’s your favorite thing about reading blogs?
    Getting to know people’s personalities and habits, especially around beauty and skincare – it’s totally the voyeuristic side of me! And also getting inspiration for things like haircolor and pieces from places I don’t normally shop. (Your blonde might be coming with me to the salon next month – a compliment, not creepy, I swear!)

    Least favorite?
    When everything qualifies as an “investment piece” cost level for me.

    If you could travel anywhere this year, where would it be?
    Besides a splurge-worthy hotel in Hawaii, back to London! It’s been a decade (oof) since I studied abroad there and after watching The Crown I’m dying to go back.

    Curling up on my new couch and knitting while watching The West Wing from the beginning!
