Tell Us More

eat, drink, be merry: Tell us your go to meal

Typically I'll whip up a GF and vegan stir fry with whatever frozen veggies I have and some Bragg's Liquid Aminos. Steam some brown rice and top the whole thing with a bunch of hot sauce… Yum!

beauty & fashion: I can skip these

Bronzer. No matter what, bronzer just makes my face look dirty. I'm still searching to be proven wrong! I also tend to not wear bracelets, I just can't pull that look off!

I NEVER go without these

Mascara, lipgloss, and earrings. Everyone looks more polished with a little bit of makeup (even if it's JUST mascara and lipgloss!) and a pair of diamond studs. You deserve diamonds, go buy some for yourself!

Biggest splurge or steal in my closet

Everything in my closet was a steal, I'm a bargain shopper! However, my stash of Lush and/or Basin products may be a bit of a splurge…

do-gooder: Why I am one

I'm the president of a nonprofit organization called Seacoast Outright. We're a support and advocacy organization for GLBTQQAIF teens and young adults. We do direct support groups as well as community education and events. The best part- my paycheck is the love of all the kids I get to work with and nothing could match that!

read, watch, listen:Favorite books

I'm a voracious reader. I tend towards dead Russian authors, ha!

Favorite bands

I have no real favorites, I like pretty much all music! Yes, that includes country and rap ;)

Favorite TV shows

NCIS, Bones, CSI, Hoarders, Intervention, Animal Cops, The Office. Wow, how typical!

Favorite movies

The 5th Element, the entire Resident Evil series, and anything that makes me so scared that I pull my feet up and clutch my husband.

home & living:My favorite room in my house

The kitchen! I love to cook and feed people. Plus, there's a reason that everyone at a party ends up in the kitchen!

potluck:Five people (dead or alive) I’d invite to a party

Only 5?! Um, my husband (that's a given), and then I'd have to draw names out of a hat to choose!

If I were an 80’s movie/tv/music star, I’d be

Jessica Rabbit! I'm not bad, I'm just drawn that way :P
