If you were an animal what would you be and why?
I would be a Dog because they are loving and friendly. {oh and it would be awesome to just lay around and sleep all day haha!}

Who is your favorite Music Artist?
Music is so inspirational to me. I don’t have a favorite. I have lifers which will continue to stay an inspiration in my life because of the experiences I have had, so far, while listening to them: Dave Matthews Band, the Beatles, the Doors and Bob Marley (because of Kevin), Coldplay and Jack Johnson. I currently listen to Pandora non-stop (Data usage is through the roof!) One of my newest favorite stations on Pandora and singer/songwriter band is Wild Belle. (Introduced to me by Rachy Rach)

Who are your style icons?
I love the natural beauty of 70′s style icon, Peggy Lipton, her feminine but tomboyish style – what’s not to love. She reminds me of my current obsession which is the singer from Wild Belle and Free People.

What is your favorite quote?
This is a hard one. I live by quotes so I don’t necessarily have a favorite. I have quotes that inspire me and quotes that help me to live in the moment. Some that I tell myself daily are: “Worrying solves Nothing.”  “Good things come to those who wait.”  “It is impossible to be perfect so don’t live to be.” “Live in the Moment.” “Always Be U.”

Who inspires you?
Inspirational People in my Life: Kevin and my Grandma Tybee and also my baby Tybee
AND my dog family! I have Two Dogs. Charlee (Charlotte from Charlottes Web) She’s a 6lb. white maltese- my best friend, my confidant and my white angel (but also sneakily devious-which makes her very funny too). Beacon is a goof ball, my guardian, my buddy – he loves life and shows me the way.

Favorite Color?
Green/Aqua and White. (All colors- I am obsessed with color and light)

What movie do you wish you could live in?
The Wizard of Oz, my childhood favorite sans flying monkeys, or Sex in the City, the wardrobes, the bond of friendship, did I mention the clothes and shoes?!?! Or Harry Potter because who wouldn’t want to go to a magical school…this is a toughy!

Favorite Color?
This varies, in my home I love gray’s offset by a pop of yellow, in clothes I’m drawn to bright bold colors, and color that just makes me happy, purple.

Favorite Random Shop? P.O.S.H.  there is always a treasure to walk away with

What do you do in your free time?
I love hunting down misplaced treasures aka, antiquing. You can find me with my nose buried in a book, currently rereading The Great Gatsby for the
upcoming movie release. And I enjoy spending time playing with my dog, trying to find a toy he can’t destroy!

If you were an animal what would you be and why?
A horse, they’re strong, loyal and beautiful!

Who are your style icons?
Kate Middleton since she always gets it right. (I even have the Kate’s Style List app for my iPhone for all of her fashion updates.) Jackie Kennedy Onassis and Audrey Hepburn also had a timeless, classic style that still looks chic today. Coco Chanel was also way ahead of her time.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I see myself enjoying my life with my family and friends in Chicago, and thriving as a successful massage therapist and writer. Ideally, I’ll have more time to travel as well. I miss the beach!

What is your favorite quote?
“The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.” –Coco Chanel

 What are your top 3 favorite Chicago shops and why?
I adore the J.Crew boutique at Old Orchard for their personalized service. They can always put together a spectacular outfit for any event in no time! A girl can never have enough stripes, cardis and ballet flats! I love Cleise Brazilian Day Spa in River North for exceptional quality skincare products. Macy’s on State St. is also a favorite since I fondly remember visiting the beautiful Christmas tree in the Walnut Room as a child back when it was Marshall Fields, and more recently study lunches and a little shopping with my classmates from Cortiva.

What movie do you wish you could live in?
I would love to live in The Great Gatsby. The fashion is absolutely amazing! I can’t wait to see it in May.
