1. One of your favorite holiday snacks/noms/sweet treats? Anything homemade! This year I’m making fig vanilla cupcakes.
2. How do you know when a mascara is right for you? I can’t wear mascara (eye dr thing) but I love Origins.
3. What’s one thing you do well? Sleep, eat, yoga, good local food…wow that’s more than one thing. 😉
4. Is it snowing where you live? right now it is YES, it looks like Christmas or a fairytale.
5. What’s something weird you keep in your purse? Ginger chews by The Ginger People at all times (helps my immune system–I travel a lot for work)
6. Do you ever wear dark smokey eyes to work? YES. A bronze or a dark silver. Picking up a dark blue soon!!
7. Are you easy to spot in a crowd? I am. I’m a curly haired girl and proud so I stand out wherever I go since I have ethnic hair and REFUSE TO straighten to meet corporate norms (or cut it short)
8. What’s your best over-protective parent story? I have none. When I moved to the Boston area we agreed to keep e-mailing but to talk every single Sunday night. 🙂 That was 18 years ago. They live 100 miles away so I can drive out if I need to.
9. Are there any beauty products you need to re-purchase? Gloom Away by Origins. I horde that stuff or anything grapefruit scented (burt’s bees lip balm in grapefruit is fantastic) this time of year. And with 5-6 months of winter I need to Gloom Away the Gloom.
10. What’s the best thing that happened to you last weekend? I began work on the Environmental Literacy Plan for my state. I’m a volunteer helping with research.

One of your favorite holiday snacks/noms/sweet treats? I’m not much for the sweet treats. I make them for gifts, but I don’t eat them. I generally watch the intake closely during the holidays. The worst way to start the new year is on a diet! UGH!
2. How do you know when a mascara is right for you? Not to thick, goes on without clumps with no flaking and lasts. Armani Eyes to Kill has been my fav for a few years.
3. What’s one thing you do well? I’ve been told I can sell ice to Eskimos. It’s true. I can pretty much get anyone to do anything for me. I try not to abuse this gift.
4. Is it snowing where you live? Yep. Have a dusting this morning.
5. What’s something weird you keep in your purse? a small tape measure.
6. Do you ever wear dark smokey eyes to work? No. I rarely do the smokey eye. I’ve got enough dark stuff around there anyway, why add more?
7. Are you easy to spot in a crowd? I have a sign (invisible to me) above my head that reads “Talk to me and ask me a question!”….yep, people talk to me everywhere I go. I’m told I’m very “open and friendly”. It’s impossible for me to go incognito anywhere.
8. What’s your best over-protective parent story? Wish I had one. I grew up in the good old days where kids ran wild and free. No parent ever wasted a minute worrying for our safety. It was a enchanted childhood filled with riding horses, jumping from trees and off the garage roof, swimming in lakes and rivers without parents around, walking alone all the way to town, riding motorbikes and 4-wheel drives when we were barely out of diapers. I’m lucky to be alive.
9. Are there any beauty products you need to re-purchase? I could be reincarnated 10 times and still have makeup to use.
10. What’s the best thing that happened to you last weekend? Last weekend….a weird mixed bag. Good and down right rotten. I’ll say going out to the our friends Xmas tree farm with my hubby and Aussie daughter and getting our tree. Maida had so much fun running around greeting everyone and getting lots of lovin’.

Your Yule Log story made me smile! We were supposed to engage in similar activities here yesterday but it poured all day, literally putting a damper on going to get a tree! We made due with pizza delivery and a Walking Dead marathon (just reached season 4, episode 6) so all was good, all was bright. 😉

1. One of your favorite holiday snacks/noms/sweet treats? HAYSTACKS. They’re basically butterscotchy pretzel clusters. Threat level 5 to diets everywhere.
2. How do you know when a mascara is right for you? When I can actually see my lashes in photos or someone comments on them – which is a rare, but highly treasured gem.
3. What’s one thing you do well? Make fun, whimsical bulletin boards. I have them everywhere and some have themes. I’ve been making them for years and think of them as art in progress because when you find something you like, you just add it. It’s like Pinterest Beta version.
4. Is it snowing where you live? No…it was shorts weather here over the weekend, which was nutty and not Christmas-like at all. Today the high was in the 40s and it’s still raining. So close…yet no snow sprinkles forthcoming. It only snows here every few years and usually mucks everything up BIG TIME b/c we don’t have equipment to deal with it. Don’t come to Atlanta when there’s a threat of snow, y’all (or zombie apocalypse)! A couple years ago the whole city shut down for almost a solid WEEK due to an ice storm. It was CRAZY.
5. What’s something weird you keep in your purse? A spare pair of earrings. I hate forgetting my earrings, so I keep a set of zirconia studs in case of emergency.
6. Do you ever wear dark smokey eyes to work? Yes. Luckily my workplace is pretty chillaxed on makeup creativity.
7. Are you easy to spot in a crowd? Fairly easy. I’m 5’7″ and most everyone else I know is shorter than me.
8. What’s your best over-protective parent story? My mom and dad didn’t let me ride in a car with anyone until they’d had their license for a year without having an accident. When everyone you know JUST got their license, no one meets these qualifications! I hated that rule so much then, but now that I’m older, I respect it.
9. Are there any beauty products you need to re-purchase? FoundaSHOUNNN! I am so excited! I’m pretty set on my next target (Chanel Mat Lumiere). I’ve stalked it for months online and I think it’s the right pick for my oily skin. I’ve finished 2 foundations this month! I’m in a clear-it-out mood!
10. What’s the best thing that happened to you last weekend? Inadvertent failure to pick out our tree led to a relaxing afternoon of watching The Walking Dead and enjoying a pizza with my fiance. Bon temps!

Have a great week, K-Rock! 🙂
