Are you itching to know more about me? Not so much? Well in case you happen to have a hunkering for some Niki love, today’s post lists some of my favorite things!
Speaking of favorites, one of my favorite bloggers, Lauren Elizabeth, recently posted a favorites list on her blog and I thought it would be a fun way to share a little more about me with my wonderful readers. Sooo here are my answers!
This kind of reminds me of one of those MySpace surveys – remember those? Anyway, here we go…
Yellow. I also have quite the affinity for navy. And white.
Ice Cream Flavor
Coffee. Funny story – I had mentioned to my now husband on our first date that coffee is my favorite flavor of ice cream. On our third date, I went to his house to watch a movie and he made me the hugest bowl of coffee ice cream imaginable. Of course I ate it, and in about 5 seconds because I have no concept of anything else when there is food in front of me. Turns out that it was kind of a joke and he didn’t think I would. Um oops? Oh well, we’re married now, so he must still like me despite my eating habits…
This is tough because I’m a beauty product junkie. But I don’t think I could live another day in my life without hair oil. My all-time favorite is Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil!
Another toughie because I love beauty products sooo much! Ok, if I had to pick one… my all-time favorite beauty product is Rosebud Perfume Co. Rosebud Salve. I hoard the stuff! I’ve been using it for years and years, and repurchased it probably a million times by now. It’s the best!
Um… every nail polish. No, ok… One polish that I’ve had for years and wear all the time, in any season, is Zoya America. It’s the perfect classic red. I did a review post on it here if you’d like to check it out!
Mode of Transportation
Helicopter. Not that I travel that way often, but I digress. It’s fast and you don’t have to worry about parking.
Big Brother. It’s one of the only shows I actually watch when it’s airing because I can’t stand to wait and watch it later on the DVR. I also love Bachelor Pad when it’s on. And Vanderpump Rules. So good. (I admittedly do not exercise my mind by way of TV.)
Material Possession (Non-Electronic)
I have a tiny photo charm of my dog, Waylon, who passed a few years ago. I keep with me everywhere I go. For a long time, when I was living down south away from my family, he was all I had. He gave me so much unconditional love and support when I needed it the most. His photo reminds me to be strong when I’m feeling down, and that I always have love surrounding me. I realize this may sound silly to those of you who are not dog people, but dogs can be like family members to those of us who are.
This one’s easy – Maui!
September! It’s summer and fall rolled into one. It’s when the leaves just start to change and the weather just starts to cool off. Plus, it’s my birthday month so that’s awesome too.
Day of the Week
Time of Day
I’m the most functional in the morning.
Year of Life (so far)
2012. The Patriots were in the Superbowl, I got married, went on the best vacation ever (to Maui and San Francisco), lived super close to – and had so many great times with – a bunch of amazing friends (two of whom I get to see this week!!!) and near the end of the year got the news from the hubbs that we were moving back to Mass (home).
Kickboxing. I have anxiety and I’m really high strung. So it feels good to punch and kick things.
Lazy Day Activity
Sitting outside with a margarita or other tequila type cocktail on a warm, sunny day. And by that I mean day drinking.
I am a shopaholic. I don’t know! I shop at Nordstrom the most!
Type of Animal
I always like to say that my favorite animal is the goat, and I really, really love goats, but dogs are my true favorite animal. I know – really shocking, right?!
My birthday. Next? Ok, ok. My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving. I like to eat, what can I say?!
Football! Go Patriots!!!
