    What are your hobbies? Lately it has been travel, and trying to figure out how to get everywhere that I want to see without spending a fortune. I also like kayaking, reading, and camping. ETA: I completely forgot about cooking and baking. I love to do both and try new recipes.

    Favorite color? Blue

    Favorite sports team? Despite living in NY, my dad was always a Minnesota Vikings fan, so that's the team I always cheer for. Though I have no strong ties to any of them really.

    Favorite type of music? I tend to like Top 40 and pop/hip hop from the 90's/early 2000's. I blast Backstreet Boys and Spice Girls when driving. Yup....I'm that girl.

    Favorite author(s)? Clive Cussler hands down. I love the Dirk Pitt and Issac Bell Series (though I have many of them, so I would need to list out which ones I am missing if you are considering this). 

    Favorite foods? Pizza, Italian, Mexican, Chocolate, Wine

    What is your decorating style? Fairly simple, but inviting. I like relaxing spaces that also feel friendly. Nothing too expensive that anyone would worry about breaking is displayed, and all of the furniture was picked due to comfort rather than style. I do also like natural scenes for artwork, but very limited pieces throughout (maybe 1-2 per room depending on room size).

    What is your clothing/accessory style? Very simple but professional. Nice jeans, a tank top, and a pretty cardigan/sweater is my go-to outfit, and I have multiple combinations of that outfit. I tend to wear very few pieces of jewelry, and I like my bags to be mostly functional. 

    Do you have any allergies? Mushrooms (including anything with truffles, truffle oil, truffle powder, etc), and Sulfa drugs. 

    ETA: Do you collect anything? Maybe I am weird, but I don't really. I normally like to buy a local trinket of some sort when I travel to a new place, but nothing really that fits into a category. For instance, I hope to find a locally made wool blanket when we are in Ireland. I like things that I can use as well instead of just displaying.

    What are your hobbies? Crafting -- typically with wood. I'm planning on making my niece/nephew a time out chair and toy box.  And I will probably make a few signs again as gifts for people. Baking -- cupcakes are my specialty.  I just want my kitchen finished so I can bake all the time. Reading - anything and everything.  Going on hikes. Anything that's related to the beach. Traveling

    Favorite color? Pink or turquoise

    Favorite sports team? Philadelphia Eagles

    Favorite type of music? I just love music.  I do not have a preference to the type.

    Favorite author(s)? F. Scott Fitzgerald, Jane Austen, J.K. Rowling, Jodi Picoult

    Favorite foods? Chocolate. Cheese. Any kind of fruit. Pasta. Tiramisu. I just love food. I eat pretty much everything except spicy food.  

    What is your decorating style? Traditional and modern. Clean lines.  Neutral colors. 

    What is your clothing/accessory style? Clothes - neutral with pops of color, and super girly. My style icons are Audrey Hepburn, Jackie O, and Kate Middleton. Accessories - I keep everything pretty simple.  Usually my shoes are my statement piece. I own a lot. 

    Do you have any allergies? nickel, dust, mold, pollen -- technically not an allergy but I have an extremely low tolerance for spice.  What is nothing for normal people is extreme for me and will make my throat close up. 


    Added -- do you collect anything? Seashells. I have jars of them from every beach I have ever been to.

    Philadelphia Eagles and NJ Devils 

    Favorite type of music?

    Pop

    Favorite author(s)?

    If I really have to choose one author then I'll go with J.K. Rowling. I like thrillers/mysteries a lot though.

    Favorite foods?

    Pizza, guac, chocolate 

    What is your decorating style?

    The 3 C's: Casual, cozy, comfy

    Casual and comfy for the most part. I wear both gold and silver.

    Do you have any allergies?

    Negative, Ghost Rider.


    ETA: Do you collect anything? 

    Nope. I wanted to collect Christmas ornaments but my furry children prevent me from having a big tree.

  • What are your hobbies? Reading, my puppies, coloring, cooking

    Favorite color? Blue, purple, grey

    Favorite sports team? Patriots, Red Sox, Bruins

    Favorite type of music? Pop & country

    Favorite author(s)? I'll really read just about anything. 

    Favorite foods? Mexican, burgers, cheese, chocolate

    What is your decorating style? I don't know that I have a "style." My house is comfy, lived-in, rustic-ish, I guess.

    What is your clothing/accessory style? Casual, comfy, slightly trendy (as in, I love skinny jeans and booties, not runway trendy)

    Do you have any allergies? None that would come through a SS gift. Actually, that's a lie. My ears are super duper sensitive and get infected really easily. I have never found a pair of earrings that didn't infect my ears.

    Do you collect anything? Pint glasses - I used to do shot glasses, but then realized that pint glasses are far more practical. I try to get one whenever I travel - I'll even get other sports teams (except any NY teams - fuck the Yankees/Giants/Jets), so I have a Cardinals glass from when I went to St. Louis, and ones from Penn State, Florida State, and Texas A&M. Anything to commemorate different places.
