1. How is your day going so far?
    So far, so good though I did just wake up! I am still recovering from my trip, so exhausted…
  2. What polish do you have on your tips today?
    None and I haven’t worn any for about 10 days now because I’m giving them a break!
  3. When did you first start really getting into nail polish?
    I would say around age 12 or 13
  4. Do you do your own mani/pedi or get them done?
    I do my own mani’s now, but didn’t used to. I still do my pedi’s sometimes, but I tend to get them done in salons in the summer a lot. I cannot deal with all the bending over and all, it kills my back! Plus they do a way better job than I do!
  5. Who is your biggest celebrity crush?
    David Beckham.
  6. Would you rather do what you love for a living but struggle to make ends meet, or do something you just tolerate but make lots of $$?
    Honestly I would rather do what I love and make lots of $$ at the same time! BUT since that wasn’t the question I asked, I must choose one of these options. I have never done what I loved and either struggled or made lots of money. But I have just tolerated what I do pretty much my whole life and made pretty good money so I know what that’s like. I think if I had never known what it was like to make good money, I would have chosen struggling and doing what I love, but since I have a mortgage and live in one of the most expensive areas in the US, I am going with tolerating and making moolah. Le sigh.
  7. What is your dream destination for a vacation?
    Now that I went to London I am thinking a tropical vacation is in order next time around. I would love to visit Fiji or Tahiti!
  8. What are your favorite beauty related websites?
    My very favorite beauty related website is Makeup and Beauty Blog, which is written by a fellow Bay Area chickie named Karen. Her site is the BOMB because the writing is excellent, the photos are fabulous, the layout is simple and pleasing to the eye, her Photoshop skillz rock and she’s hilarious. Not to mention her cat Tabs is adorable (and no I am not being paid by her to write this, haha). Some others that I read on pretty much on a daily basis are, Temptalia, Scrangie, Nail Juice, The Polish Addict, All Lacquered Up and Steph’s Closet.
  9. What are your favorite non-beauty websites?
    There are MANY websites I visit regularly, but the ones I must read every day are: Dooce, Pioneer Woman, Nothing But Bonfires, Go Fug Yourself, Bakerella and Blurbomat (Dooce’s hubbie).  So what do all these sites have in common? They all have either fantastic writing, photography, design or all three. I may read many websites, but there are very few that keep me coming back daily and the ones that do truly stand out because of the quality. If there are three things that immediately turn me off when I land on a page they are: spelling errors, bad grammar and poor layout.
  10. What is your favorite vampy color of nail polish?
    Wow this is a really hard one for me! I think if I HAVE to choose just one it would be OPI Russian Navy.
