Get to Know Elena behind Pink Zin a little better!

Happy Friday Readers! 

Cheers to the Weekend! This is my last weekend home for winter break and I cannot wait to be back at school!  Soon enough! Do you all have some exciting weekend plans? Can't wait to read about them! 

Since I still consider myself fairly new to the blogging world (when is one officially not new to the blogging world?), I figure answering this little questionnaire would be a good way for you all to get to know me a little better :) I saw this survey on one my new favorite reads Carolina Queen and thought it was perfect. goes nothing...

1. What time did you get up this morning? 9:00 am! I woke up a bit earlier because I have some work to do before family stuff- but now I'm blogging...woops! 
2. How do you like your steak? Medium!- I don't eat steak so so often but when I eat it at a restaurant that's how I order it! 
3. What was the last movie you saw at the theater? New Year's Eve with my friend Paula from high school- I loved it! I had never seen Valentine's Day (which I heard was awful) so I went in with an open mind and left the theatre very pleased! 
4. What is your favorite TV show? This is a tough one- if you've been reading my blog, you know by now that I'm a TV junkie! But my favorite show of ALL TIME is hands-down....Gilmore Girls. I'm not embarrassed to admit that I own every season on DVD and could watch them over and over again! 
5. If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be? Most definitely Boston. I fell in love with the city from the start of college and enjoy it so much more than my home city of NYC (shocking, I know) but I just really enjoy that it's a rather large city but has a neighborhood-y, small-town kinda feel (well I guess I don't really know what a small-town feels like since I've only ever lived in cities!). 
6. What did you have for breakfast? Coffee (duh), whole-wheat english muffin with peanut butter and an apple (trying to stick to those new year's resolutions!) 
7. Do you wear glasses or contacts? Contacts! Well both I guess, I wear glasses when I'm home (in the morning/at night) but wear contacts to work, class, the gym, basically anytime I step outside of my apartment haha. 
8. What food do you despise? Ummmm...I don't really despise any food? Nor does any food really freak me out haha but I guess I'm not really a fan of brussels sprouts- but hey I'll try anything once! 
9. Favorite Place to Eat? Ummmm....anywhere? I literally love going out to eat and loveee trying new restaurants. I love Chinese, Japanese and Thai food and it's something I can't make at home so I love frequenting those types of restaurants. I rarely eat Italian out since I think my mom makes better Italian food than any restaurant I've ever been to (call me snobby, whatever!)

10. Favorite dressing? Balsamic Vinaigrette- can be healthy and delicious!

11. What kind of vehicle do you drive? Nadda...I actually don't drive- public transportation is this girl's best friendd. 
12. What are your favorite clothes? I'm ALL about comfort! Big sweaters, scarves, leggings or jeans with riding boots. 
13. Where would you visit, this weekend, if you had the chance? Alright ladies don't judge but I really would love to travel to somewhere in the South! All I read about are these great southern cities that you all live in and I would love to see what they're really like! I'm a northern girl born and raised but it would be fun to give the dirty south a try! 
14. How many tattoos do you have? None- terrified of getting one and my mother would disown me. 
15. Where would you want to retire? haha I have NO idea- how about I figure out where I'm going to live after college graduation first. 
16. What is your desktop photo? One of Carly's from The College Prepster homemade backgrounds! 

17. Where were you born? NYC baby! 
18. What is your favorite sport to watch? ummm not that biggest of sports fans- but I guess a football game will hold my attention the longest. 
19. How many siblings? two half-sisters that I adore! One lives in Manhattan and the other up and moved to Germany with her hubby and my niece and nephew! 

20. Favorite pastime/hobby? blogging/facebook/pinterest/twitter/g-mail/gosh anything online? I also love reading and watching some t.v.!
21. Coffee Drinker? YES! religiously! I think I pray to the coffee gods! I make my own coffee  everyday! 
23. Are you a morning person or a night person? Probably a combo-depends on the day and what's going on. I tend to be more productive in the morning though. 
24. Do you have any pets? No :( I cannot wait to get a puppy of my own once I graduate! 

Woah that was a lot more fun than I thought it would be! I hope you all enjoyed it and got to know me a little better! If you've never done one of these survey's/questionnaire things before- I highly recommend it! They're super fun to answer and read! 

Don't forget to enter my first giveaway here! Be sure to enter before Monday at 9pm! 



  1. I love this post! It is so cute and such a good way to get to know you better. I agree about Boston, it is a gorgeous place I was in Manhattan for my birthday this past summer (which my southern self being there was such a laugh!) and I enjoyed it but Boston is more my kind of place (if I ever left the south haha) I loved Japanese so much I worked at a Jap Restaurant during high school so I could eat for free! Obsessed. I have to, HAVE to have coffee every day! It is a little embarrassing how dependent I am! I love that you would like to visit the south! Come on down and you'll have the time of your life! I would suggest Savannah or Charleston trips in you future sometime, you seriously will not regret it! Sorry this is such a long comment I got carried away agreeing with so much you said haha! Have a great weekend.

  2. COME TO THE SOUTH! You'll love it! Slower pace, great food and warm weather. :) Also, glad that you loved NYE. I want to see that movie so badly! Hopefully this weekend?

  3. I love this post! I want to do something similar - I might borrow these questions from you...or rather from Carolina Queen! Your favorite clothes sound exactly like mine! We also have the same pastimes...although those might be the same for a lot of bloggers!

  4. mmmm coffee! You're just too cute girl! Cheers! :)

  5. I loved this post! We have so much in common, yet are so different. I also love love love Asian foods and want to live in Boston one day (which is super weird for me since I've only ever lived in SC and now Texas). I'm all about comfort with clothes as well. You should definitely visit the South! I agree with Jordan too, Charleston or Savannah are the places to go. :)

  6. I am soo jealous that you work at the Lilly store!! I've never actually been to NYC...come visit me down South!! KY Derby possibly??? Long distance blogger date?

  7. You're ready to go back to school? Dang girl. When I was on break, I was dreading hitting the books again. :)

    Oh my word, I LOVE GG. Such a great show! :) I'm a total TV junkie, too!
    I made the hubs watch the Bachelor with me the other day :)

  8. I saw Valentine's Day when it came out and loved it. I never got around to seeing New Year's Eve, so I'll have to see it! Gilmore Girls is one of my all-time fave shows! I have every season on DVD also. You definitely need to come visit the South!

  9. I would love to go to Boston, and I've never been. Have a great weekend!
