Q & Allison | About Me

I’ve been wanting to do an “About Me” tag for a while, so I used the Questions function on Instagram (and my coworkers) to crowdsource some good questions.

Here we go –

What is your favorite red lipstick?

That’s like asking me to choose between children (that I don’t have)

If you had to choose between quesadillas or grilled cheese for the rest of your life, which would you choose?

I’d probably have to say quesadillas, but please (please) don’t make me choose.

Which Harry Potter Book is your favorite?

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (#4)

Black or blue ink?

Black if I’m just taking notes, blue if I’m annotating or signing something official.

Puppy-sized elephant or elephant-sized puppy.

Duh, a puppy-sized elephant.

What are your top 5 book recommendations?

Check out my Goodreads! I waver so much between books that I don’t have a “favorite,” but anything marked with a 4 or 5 star could be classified here.

If you could only shop at 3 clothing stores, what would they be?

Nordstrom (which is a loophole because #1 I love loopholes and #2 they carry both Madewell and Topshop)



Best recipes for a single girl?

Hummus pasta is my new obsession – check it out here from Madeleine Olivia!

What is your go-to drink (cocktail) for a girls night out?

I once heard that Taylor Swift orders a Diet Coke and Vodka so I started to do it too. But most likely, I’m drinking a cider (Bishop Cider Crackberry is my current favorite).

Favorite red wine?  White?

I love a good Cab Sav, and I don’t really like white wine.

Favorite coffee? or tea?

Black coffee
My teas of choice:

Top 3 bands to listen to on a road trip?

State Champs

One Direction

5 Seconds of Summer

I need a bit of nostalgia, songs to belt out every word, and a large catalog of songs.

Now that you have moved into your own new place, what changes/updates will occur for you in all aspects of life (job, love life, passions, etc. Life/career goals?)

LOL if only I knew – you’d be the first to know. 

If you could choose a name for yourself, what would it be?

Growing up, the name I got the most often (if it wasn’t some variation of my name like Al, Allie, etc.) was Melissa. I’m not sure why, but I guess I’d go for that because it seems believable.

Bucket-List Travels?

Check out my travel map here for a full list. 😉

Cat Name?

As we just lost our cat Paprika that we had for 19 years, I’m not wanting to jump in any time soon. However, here’s a list of names I’ve pulled together over the years:

  • Draco
  • Moriarty
  • Luna
