Tag, I'm it! ;)

Hello strangers! I really sorry I have not posted much. The fact is, I am kind of depressed with school, (that is the reason for all of the nature pictures, just looking at things like that make me feel a whole lot happier!) and some other things.
Easter is on its way, and coming much faster than I realize. I was just sitting here remembering how I used to get a new Easter dress every year. It makes me kind of sad it has stopped! ;( Of course I dress up, but I don't have a dress specifically for it. I also remember the Easter Egg hunts. Man, those were so much fun!

In other news, I was recently tagged by the lovely Sally, from "Everything is Better Pink."

Here are the rules:

-Click on the above button and paste onto your blog/website

-Answer the below questions

-Pass onto 10 bloggers that you love, go to their blog and let them know they have been tagged

1. Who is your style icon? Oh gosh, this is a tough one. I would have to say Audrey Hepburn, and Lilly Pulitzer. They have such a classy, preppy look, and it makes them unique.

2. What is your favorite socialite book? Kate Spade- Manners, Occasions, and Style. I also like Essentially Lilly, a guide to colorful entertaining, and Ina Gartens cook books.

3. Favorite party theme? One time I had a masquerade party where everyone dressed up in ball gowns, and I gave out masks. That was tons of fun!! I also like grown up tea parties, and a Lilly party would be great to!

4. Go to Halloween costume? I don't really celebrate Halloween, but if I did, I would probably be a safari girl, (Tan button down cuffed dress!!!!) or a leopard.

5. Extravagance you cannot live without? I dont have many extravagances that I truly need. I just love the simple things. I LOVED Sally's answer about fresh cut flowers. Our house is decorated with them. I also like my diamond stud earrings, and my faux pearl necklace from Kristin Pearce.

6. Living person you admire? Ina Garten, Julia Childs, and my grandma. I would have said Ruby Bridges, but sadly, she is not alive anymore.

7. Greatest Fear? This sounds absolutely ridiculous but (Wait should I actually be advertising this to the world? Oh well. ;) I HATE with a passion............ Crickets. Good grief they are scary!! But being realistic once again, my family or friends dying suddenly. I know where they will be going, which is a much better place than here, and I will see the again. But it still makes me scared.

8. Trait you deplore in yourself? I can suddenly judge a person (wrongly) in just the few minutes I have met them.

9. Which talent would you most like to have? I would love to be able to play the guitar, I would like to become a professional cake decorator or, wedding planner. (A florist would also be fun!)

10. Greatest Achievement? Finishing my LOOOONG science re-search paper. I feel very accomplished!! He he!

I am passing this fun tag onto the following......

Good luck finding an Easter dress! You could enter my blog giveaway and win a free Lilly Pulitzer dress. =)

I started a blog that I think you might like. It combines fashion and giving back to charities. Each week, I will give away 1 designer dress (this week it’s the Pink Adelson Shift from Lilly Pulitzer Spring 2010) to one lucky follower, who raises awareness of the blog's selected charity through various ways such as tweeting about it or commenting with an interesting fact. I am currently also giving away some great Lilly stationary items too. Please check out my blog at www.shop4charity.blogspot.com because doing good is chic!
