Get to know Erin:

1. What are you currently reading?   
Vogue September 2013... I'm dead serious.  That thing was 2 inches thick and I'm a busy lady so I'm paging through it story by story.  I also read a lot of blogs and e-mail newsletters on a daily basis.

2. Favorite recipe or restaurant?  
My favorite dessert is creme brulee and I will order it every chance I can.  And, I hate to be evasive, but I love way too many restaurants to pick a favorite.  We try new recipes at home all the time and I find cooking to be a lot of fun... and there's always a frozen pizza as back-up in case the experiment goes south. 

3. What's your favorite thing about blogging?  
Blogging introduces me to new people and it feeds my curiosity to explore.  I have made incredible connections with bloggers here in Chicago and love getting to know them personally.  We all have online personas and it is fun to get a bit behind the scenes!  I've always been curious and adventurous and a prolific story teller.  Since I've started blogging (Life Guide by Erin in 2008*, Daily E in 2010, and Color Me Styled in 2012) I find that I approach events, pop culture trends, and shopping with a whole new set of questions that are related to blogging and how I can spin these events into posts or stories.  

* I recently found this blog again and love to see how far the blogging world has come in just 5 short years!  I started it as a marketing class assignment and then I blogged when I moved to California and then hit-or-miss once I moved back to Chicago.  While it is awesome to see how things have changed, a lot of my outlooks have stayed the same!  I still love DIY projects, the Olympics, and good old fashioned paper.

4. Five things on your wish list  
  1. Joie Mariner Pants 
  2. A Home Office (with that Mac computer and those chairs)
  3. Anything Monogrammed (bonus if it is in Rose Gold) 
  4. A puppy 
  5. More time for blogging!
5. Favorite quote?  
"Creativity is intelligence having fun." - Albert Einstein
