- What is your idea of happiness? 

Happiness to me is love. 

The things that I love and make me the happiest:

My Family 
My Dearest Friends 
Aspen, Colorado (My Happy Place) 
Big Fluffy Beds 
Ice Cream Sundaes 
Daydreaming 
Snuggling
Skiing 
Hot Chocolate 
Snow 
Sunshine 
Candy

 - What is a party must have?

As a host: a good playlist, plenty of decorations/party favors, and delicious snacks (preferably sweets!)  

As a guest: a bouquet of flowers, a good bottle of wine, or a small token to give as a hostess gift. Never show up empty handed to a party! 

 - What is your favorite candy?

A.sweeT. Dark Chocolate Peppermint Crunch Bars (A Christmas Season Special) and Strawberry Aussie Licorice. 

 - What is your motto?

 Life is not complete without A.sweeT.! 

AND 

Faith. Hope. Love. 

 - To UGG or not to UGG?

UGG! But, only if followed by Skiing, Surfing, or Yoga. Ok, and maybe on a lazy Sunday, running errands (incognito) in sweats & oversized shades.

(please no skirt/shorts with UGG’s. Ugh!)

 - What do you consider to be the greatest invention?

The toothbrush! I love having clean, sparkly, squeaky clean chompers. No better feeling than perfectly clean pearly whites. (Ironic for a candy girl, eh?)

- What do you love most about your job? 

I love that every day I am working on and working for something that was sparked by “A.sweeT.” idea in my head and that I created with my own two hands. I love that every day I get to marvel in the fact that  I took an idea – a vision –  and made it a reality. I love that every day I get to be creative in new ways. I get to dream. I get to push myself. I get to control the fate of my business. It’s terrifying at times, but I love it. Every day. 

- What is your favorite item in your closet?

Currently, my IRO Sequin Moto Jacket. But, truly my favorite piece has to be my black leather jacket that I have had for yeeeeaaaars! I think I wear it (almost) on a daily basis. It’s the staple piece in my “uniform.”

What are 3 things you have been up to lately? (i.e. playing extra hard with the pups or amping up for a conference, planning an exciting trip etc….)

Not much. Just… 

Writing a new business plan/taking A.sweeT. to the next level – watch out! 
Revamping A.sweeT.’s website – shop asweetonline.com
Redecorating my condo – nesting in my home, sweet, home. 

What are your top 3 blogs to follow?

Aside from TheDamselinDior? ;) 


Three of my dear friends have amazing blogs, they are: 

- Favorite Store?

Duh!  A.sweeT.! :) 

-       I cannot leave home without my

iPhone

-       - Reading any books at the moment? Seen any great movies? Favorite TV Shows?

I am trying to catch up with the rest of the world. I am currently reading, “Catching Fire” (Book two of the Hunger Games). And, patiently waiting on my bedside table  for me to read (aside from Mockingjay- Book Three of THe Hunger Games) is, “The Art of Fielding.”  

Some of my all time favorite books include: The Alchemist, 100 Years of Solitude, Hairstyles of the Damned

I think the last movie I saw was the remake of 21 Jumpstreet. Hilarious. (but, yes – it’s been awhile since I have been to the movies. What’s even out?) 

I don’t really watch TV because I am never home and I never really have time; but admittedly if the TV is on, I am watching Bravo! (The Real House Wives (of any city), Bethany, Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen) or E!, for the news of course. I definitely go for the hard hitting stuff. 

-        What is your favorite word of the moment?

 Bonkers 

-       What is your favorite color of the moment?

Yellow is my favorite color – of always! It’s bright and happy. 
And, if we are talking about combining it with something? Well, uh – turquoise is the perfect pairing. Bam. Statement Combo… Pop of Candy, if you will. 

-       What are 3 things you have in your purse at all times?

Candy (or a snack of some sugary sort), Hand Sanitizer (I am a bit of a germ-a-phobe), Sunglasses

If you were an animal what would you be?

A Hummingbird. I love Hummingbirds. They make me happy and just bring such good energy and light into the world. 

 Any other things you’d like to add?

If I had a magical power, I would blink my eyes and be in a different state of being or place – a la “I Dream of Genie”

People look at me and think I am a girly-girl – but I am actually a true tomboy. Charles Barkley was one of my Childhood Heros. And, I played a Division-1 Sport (soccer) in college. 

My nickname is LoveBug
