How much time do you spend getting ready in the morning? Depends on the day but usually no more than 20 minutes.
What's your signature scent? I don't always wear a scent but if I do, it's Kai or anything gardenia
What trend do you hope dies this summer? Jeggings. The hybrid of jeans and leggings. They are meant to be two separate options. To paraphrase from the wise-beyond-her-years Blair Waldorf, "TIGHTS ARE NOT PANTS!"

What is your favorite magazine? Vanity Fair, New York Magazine, Vogue... and Moda Operandi Magazine too of course :)
What was your first AOL screen name? Oh my. Um, it was "Wakko247"... I had a friend who was the "Yacko" because of some cartoon I think we liked. I should have lied on this answer.
Would you rather.... Midnight in Paris or Midnight in NY? Definitely Paris... when the night is just beginning!
Mojito or Margarita? Margarita
Facebook or Twitter? Both! Follow me.
If you could have one super power what would it be? To be able to teleport!!!
