  45. Hello hello!
    I'm Cait. Lifestyle blogger behind Pretty & Fun. Social strategist & advertising agency gal.
    I love sunny days, my two pups, ice cream & aviator sunglasess.
    I'm a sucker for chevron, sequins and all things gold.
    Nail polish and lipstick are my weaknesses - I can never have enough.
    I'll be driving to New Jersey from Chicago to spend Christmas with my family (and I can't wait).

  46. Hi!
    I'm Heather.
    Born and raised in NY. I couldn't imagine living anywhere else. I love this city!
    I adore my parents and brother!
    I'm 32 but people say I look like I'm still in high school. I'll take it!
    I am married to the most caring, patient, and thoughtful person I know. He makes me a better person.
    I manage TV ad campaigns for Verizon, Jenny Craig, Sandals, Chase, and Reckitt (household products like Lysol, Woolite, etc). I love my job but it makes me a total stressball! I work with an amazing group of women that I respect and enjoy spending almost 10 hours a day with them.
    I love interior design and architecture.
    I love to cook and workout. A bizarre combination.
    My husband and I bought our first home 2.5 years ago. We have done so much work to it and there is so much more to do. I love all of the projects.
    TMI: My husband and I have been trying to have a baby for almost a year. It's not as easy as it seems. It's a very heartbreaking and frustrating process. Hopefully one day we will have our miracle baby.
    P.S. - You girls have created such a wonderful site for women!

  47. Hello!
    I'm Meg.
    I'm 27, but will be 28 in January.
    Born in SC, but currently living in Chicago in Lincoln Park. I moved here in 2010, and love it!
    I work as a concierge downtown, and consider myself super lucky to have a job I enjoy. I get to tell people what to do, where to shop and where to eat for a living! How fun is that?
    I am engaged to one of the best guys around. He and I met in college in SC, but didn't start dating until we both graduated. We have a golden retriever, Reggie, who is hilarious.
    We will be spending our first Christmas in our brand new condo! I will be working during the day, but we'll cook dinner and watch Elf once I get home!

  48. Hi, I'm Abi. I'm 32 and living near Washington, DC. I recently changed jobs/industries and now lead a team of communicators for a national nonprofit. About the time that I decided to make this shift, I started ticking down lists of seasonal foods, drinks and activities to encourage work/life balance. The winter version includes several must-see holiday movies: Love Actually, The Family Stone and The Holiday. The list is about 50% complete; I should be farther along at this point in the season, but Pinterest (@waebaivaehr) and friends keep supplying me with ideas to add. Speaking of Pinterest, I dream about your color palette and of recreating your apartment as my own...in Europe. Thanks for the continuous inspiration.

  49. I'm Rose. I write Blonde in this City & work for a jewelry company in NYC. I'm from Iowa.
    I miss MY dog like crazy, and I get to see her for 11 days starting Friday! I am beyond excited.
    I didn't get to go home for Christmas last year, but this year I get a nice, looong break.
    Your blog is one of the first I really started to read, and on busy days, the only one I get to check sometimes.
    I am currently planning a switch to interior design and planning on getting my master's soon.
