The Only One Q&A


Happy Monday friends!! Highlights of the weekend include getting a much needed hair cut, girl's night with a great friend & discovering a new show on Netflix!! All of that left few opportunities for photos, so as I was reading this month's Instyle, I decided to do their cover quiz and try a little something different for this week's Monday post. It's the if you could only choose one...

wear one outfit || Skinny jeans, leopard flats & a fun blouse - go to outfit for day or night! 
have one style icon || Reese Witherspoon - perfect mix of classic, preppy & colorful when needed! 
shop at one store || Have to choose one that sells pretty much everything I'd need and that award goes to Nordstrom
carry one handbag || Picking one handbag for me is like picking a favorite child - perhaps not that extreme, but I take my bags seriously!! I'd have to say my GM Louis Vuitton Never Full. I had it on my wishlist for a few years and 5 years ago when Gary and I were in Aruba, I finally bought it for myself and was so proud!! Not to mention I pack it to the brim and it stands but it's name - it NEVER get's full! 
use one skincare product || Pond's cream has been my go to for years - it takes forever to go through the moisturizer and it hydrates my skin so well! 
wear one scent ||  Dolce & Gabbana light blue takes me back to the summer of my freshman year of college and makes me so happy! 
indulge in one spa treatment || the longest massage offered at any spa!! 
apply one lipstick color || MAC Snob - love the pretty pink! 
order one drink || Bellini - love the champs and peach puree! 
via
pick one flower || Hydrangeas - they might not last long, but they are so pretty, especially the blush colored ones! 
apply one mascara || Maybelline lash sensational is my absolute favorite mascara - I've gone through 5 tubes!  


do one workout || I'm going to go with a workout I've only done a few times, but platform offered by pure barre is insanely good!! Not only do you get an incredible sweat session, but you burn a ton of calories!! If you saw my snapchat this weekend (@blovedboston) - I burned 400 calories in one hour- now that's a workout I can get behind!! 
read one author || Based on author's I've read more than one book by - I'd have to say Emily Giffin - Something Borrowed, Something Blue & Baby Proof have been read numerous times! 
live by one quote || this one says it all! 
Weekending link up is live below - so link up and share!! Hope you all have an amazing start to the week!

  11. I could definitely shop at Nordstrom only and be perfectly content. They have the best selection and great sales!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Yep - those flowers would be beautiful year round in a home.
    I wish I could pick a perfume that I could only wear... .they keep changing or quit making the ones I like. BOO!
    Reese Witherspoon. Perfect choice - she is adorable.

  20. Fun post!! I agree with you about Nordstrom too, that would also be my choice. :-) Love those hydrangeas too and your LV bag!

    ReplyDelete
  21. For so many of these I was thinking "SAME." I would DEFINITELY pick Nordstrom if I could only shop at one place and I LOVE Emily Giffin! This was such a fun post to read!

    ReplyDelete
  22. What a fun post!! I would have to say that I agree with you on shopping at Nordstrom, wearing jeans and a cute blouse, having a hard time choosing a purse and hydrangeas are gorgeous!!! The most bang for your buck as flowers go, I think. Happy Monday!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Emily Giffin definitely writes some of my favorite books for sure! I'm so glad you like platform! I am actually not training in it so I can enjoy the classes and get a workout that I'm not always so familiar with!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Love that quiz girl! So fun! I'm with you on the bag - I feel like I need to get the next size down because I put EVERYTHING in it and then am basically hauling around luggage lol.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Love this! Linking up for the first or second time - thanks for hosting. AND - hydrangeas all the way. In fact, they were the only flower we used at our wedding. :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. What a fun post, I loved this! I love hydrangeas, Emily Griffin, and Reese Witherspoon. I have major bag envy as well! :) Happy Monday, and as always, thanks for hosting the link-up!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ohh this is so fun! I'm with you on Reese and I think I'd pick Nordstrom too-- I have one of Emily Giffin's book on my ipad to read & need to get to it!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I know Light Blue has been around for a while, but I've just gotten into it! It smells so fresh, which is needed this summer—I'm melting here in NY!

  29. Those blush hydrangea are beautiful!! I've never seen those, but WOW!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. This is such a fun quiz! I definitely agree with you about only shopping at Nordstrom since it pretty much has everything that you'd need, including makeup. And can hydrangeas be any more beautiful? And Emily Giffin is such a great author! There's only one of her books that I've read that I didn't care for, but everything else was so good! I hope your Monday is off to a great start!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Light Blue! YES.
    Hydrangeas are my favorite, too!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I've been resisting the urge to get a LV Neverfull! They are such gorgeous bags and so light!!

  33. This is so cute! I love it! I have the MM Neverfull and I will never regret purchasing that bag. I love it so much! And I love hydrangeas - they've been so pretty these last few weeks in NC!

    ReplyDelete
  34. So, I absolutely LOVE this prompt and may have to borrow it ;) your fav quote at the end also inspired me. I'm going to make that my motto for a while! I know I said it on instagram, but you have the best hair!! Glad you had a fun weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Flats, skinnies and a fun top are my go to, I seriously long for the day that I can just wear skinny jeans to work every day! Loving that bag and hydranges... sighhh, love to have them, but hate they don't last, happy Monday!

    ReplyDelete
  36. What a fun post idea! Reese Witherspoon is the best style icon! I love hydrangeas too but always get so sad when I buy them and they're dead in a matter of days. Hope you have a great Monday!

    ReplyDelete
  37. This is such a fun post, girlie! Your go-to outfit for date night is perfect! In my world, you can never go wrong with leopard flats! I also love the look of MAC's snob, it's so pretty! I've never tried it before, but have heard a few beauty gurus rave about it and I keep forgetting to check it out whenever I'm out shopping; I have to remember! I also love Hydrangeas, they're SO beautiful, such a shame they don't last long :( Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have a wonderful week ahead!

  68. I have the same bag and I LOVE it! I would recommend getting a leather moisturizer though and rubbing it on the handles and the trim on the bag, as they do tend to get dry and start to crack! I loved your haircut on IG, it was so pretty!

  69. It is too funny that you mentioned Pond's!!! We were out to dinner last week with family, and our 80-something year old Aunt has the most AMAZING skin! I asked her what she uses and she said that nearly all of her life she only has used Pond's!!!! I was like "REALLY?????" I used it when I was in my teens........I soooooooooooo need to go back to it! I adore Hydrangeas too, they are so beautiful! I love Nordstrom also but right now I can't afford it :(

  70. Loved the new cut! How much shorter did you end up going? I go through phases where I want to do drastic things and then always chicken out. (;

    I too LOVE Hydrangeas and wore Light Blue all throughout college! (:

  71. Such a fun idea for a post!! I may have to copy it if you don't mind!! Umm, those hydrangeas are beyond gorg!!!!!!! And I'm with you on the LV Neverfull - I have it too and am obsessed!
