What a busily productive day! Interviews, writing profiles, proofreading, catching up on blogs, and sending a HUGE email to my friend Jenny in China with the latest roundup of our Oxford family. I really just want to keep everyone updated on each other forever. Honestly, that would be the best job!

Confession: I am addicted to InStyle magazine (there are four issues littering my room right now). I hate most fashion magazines because they’re trashy and over-the-top trendy (and absolutely sex-saturated), but InStyle has clean lines, makeup tips that actually work, fun articles on trends, and lots of cute clothes to drool over. In the back of every issue, they quiz a celebrity on her “guilty pleasures.” In the spirit of totally celebrating girliness, I’m going to use their categories and offer my favorites…

Beauty binge: Recently it’s been fun eyeliner. I now own it in four colors…it always reminds me so pleasantly of stage makeup. I feel like a diva when I swipe it on in the morning. Traditionally, though, it’s lip gloss…I must have seven different kinds in my purse.

Cheesy movie: For total chick flick, it’s You’ve Got Mail or Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. For campy and hilarious, it’s Clue or Tommy Boy. “Shut up, Richard!”

Cocktail: I usually don’t drink, but if I do, it’s going to be sangria. Preferably at a tapas bar in Spain…but I’ll take it in the States too.

Fashion addiction: Mossimo tank tops from Target. I have seven of them, and I looove them. They’re soft and casual and cute. And long enough…they don’t require constant tugging.

Fast food: Rosa’s chicken fajitas with queso…the BEST. I think I eat them three times a week. At least.

Karaoke song: Don McLean’s “American Pie”…yes, all seven-ish minutes of it. My dad and I know EVERY word. (He likes the part where the marching band refused to yield, since I was in band in high school.) Oh, and Barry Manilow’s “Copacabana.”

Midnight snack: Dark chocolate. Or ice cream, if we have it. Or both.

How about y’all? Guilty pleasures? I’m curious. (But please not too guilty…keep it PG-rated! And guys, if you’re weearing lip gloss and eyeliner…well, I really don’t want to know.)

Happy Monday!
