My self-summary
east coaster (have lived up and down it), a visual creative gal, part of my heart is in the south ( especially many coastal parts) but I do love nyc. spent time in France at business school. Olivia Wilde makes me laugh and stoked about my Clemson tigers always. wishing I was at amanyara turks and caicos about now. ;-)
What I’m doing with my life
work in marketing for a British University in the publishing industry, growing my career there. I belong to NYC Junior League. My committee plans 2 spectacular tours of homes in Manhattan (one in spring and one in the fall). You also might see me out painting fences, pulling weeds or planting flowers in Ft. Tryon Park in an orange t shirt (not because I committed a crime and that's my punishment). using too many parentheses, tweeting, tumbling, social media-ing etc...I also help take care of my mom. hoping to adopt a new dog in the spring.
I’m really good at
Giving compliments, making people feel good about themselves. I am caring and giving. giving fashion / style advice to friends. Also - Interior design / style / design / that kind of stuff is up my alley so if you ask - I will advise! ;-) always good at sleeping! Being self deprecating (a self deprecating sense of humor is always a turn on for me! I laugh at myself a lot! ;-) I am good at massages too - been told have magic fingers (they are kinda long , not sure if that is a help or what );-)
The first things people usually notice about me
my style/ clothes , that i am a sweetheart, eyes, smile
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Words, any Audrey Hepburn movies (esp. Breakfast at Tiffany's and Sabrina), Chocolat (huge Juliette Binoche fan), Like Water for Chocolate, Rent, Chicago, When Harry Met Sally, most Wes Anderson (Royal Tenenbaums) and Woody Allen movies (Vicky Cristina Barcelona). italian, mexican, japanese, and French food, love Balthazar, August in the village for Brunch, Fig and Olive (chocolate soufflé) and Bull & Bear (I know it's been around forever at the Waldorf but the steaks, food and service are amazing!), Thistle Hill in park slope for local. Most music except country, (from Sting to Sade to the Stones..) Art books are my favorite kind of books -- fave artists Cy Twombly, Klimt, Rothko and alot of interior designers and architects ( have a good collection - also design / style/ fashion / interiors books) also love the New Yorker cartoons! I could live in museums too - ( yup one time when I was little Howard Cosell was at the museum , I think it was the Met - well nobody was looking at him, everyone was watching me because I was obsessed with writing everything down about every single painting!!)
Love most cultural events especially dance- ballet, modern dance / Paul Taylor. Alvin Ailey, broadway plays, films, foreign films, architecture, interior design and on and on.... Also love yoga, Pilates, and dance class at my gym (i try to gym it 3 times / week ) and tennis (but haven't played in a while). Like going to most sports events (no boxing or nascar though ha!)
The six things I could never do without
My dog, I phone, chocolate, my family, sunshine (the beach), shampoo, exercise!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I am going to get on The Sartorialist, what I am going to eat,
fantasies About Nacho Figueras (hey he is HOT STUFF - and if you look like him message me) and wishing I was Nigella Lawson's BFF so I could become the domestic goddess chef she is and meet all her friends etc etc (she is sexy!)...seriously though I think about how I can improve myself intellectually, professionally, culturally, physically, spiritually etc. also I think about how I can help my mom a lot (she is not in a wheelchair but has some severe disabilities). I also do what I can and think about how I can help the NYC community.
On a typical Friday night I am
recovering from the week -- so at home / local in the slope or usually low key, not a super loud club person, prefer an intimate cool sexy speakeasy type place like Raines Law Room with awesome drinks and some privacy. (I wish I had part ownership of that place, it is so up my alley!)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I wouldn't say it on here! ok ok ok...People have called me Charlotte (reference :Charlotte in Sex in The City - for looks, personality, dressing...I guess the whole thing) what the hey, she's gorgeous. It's even become a nickname....now you know...
You should message me if
We might click potentially past just cyber-clicking and you are not cra cra. You are an awesome communicator, very verbal. You are compassionate, genuine, charming, classy and comfortable in your own skin -- manners are kind of a big deal to me (and a rad sense of humor of course). You can be intense but don't always have to be-- you can switch over easily and enjoy being light and fun alot of the time. You are kind, caring and ready to put someone else in your life first - and ready to work at this. You are a giver and your actions show it. You are ready to find your best friend and the person who seriously brings out the best in you and complements you for the next chapter in your life. Please LIVE IN MANHATTAN OR BROOKLYN Or very very close (I live in Park Slope). It would be very cool to meet someone who does not discriminate against Brooklynites and could also come cross the bridge with their passport to hang with me occasionally! (I'm worth it and BK is just badass ) Please love dogs!!!
