Tell Me Something : Kimberly Taylor Images

Town or Country? 
country within close proximity of the city

Music or Books?
this is one I simply can not choose between!

Perfect day - shopping/spa or doing absolutely nothing?
spa day! I can't imagine doing nothing

London, Paris, New York or Sydney?
that is tough - I am completely torn between Paris and London - I adore both!

Bread or Cake? cake

McDreamy or McSteamy?
McSteamy. sigh...

Romantic Hero or Action Hero?
action - Jason Statham baby!

Prince William or Prince Harry?
funny you should ask - I would probably choose Harry

Catherine or Pippa?
oh how I adore Catherine - the epitome of style and grace

Heels or favourite winter boots?
winter boots - which in Seattle means either hunter rain boots or fabulous riding boots

French chic or Italian sex appeal?
French chic - while I would love to lean towards sexy, I am painfully classic

Chocolate or Coffee?
again - really? I have to choose? probably coffee
(if stranded on an island and could only have ONE)

Great shoes or gorgeous underwear?
i have a shoe "issue" but would love to also have a lingerie issue

Pedicure, manicure or massage?
pedicure - complete with long, luxurious foot and leg massage

Talk it out or keep it to yourself?
talk it out - that is what fabulous girlfriends are for!

Karaoke - first to sing, last to sing or absolutely-no-way-not-ever?
i would have to be painfully inebriated in order to do so... it is in the best interest of all within earshot....

1. One beauty product or routine that you would recommend or can't live without? water -
I am a firm believer in staying hydrated as it is good for you on multiple levels.
2. One book you would recommend to anyone or that you love and often return to?
Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood.
Light reading but I LOVE imagining living in that era
3. One item that you would take to a desert island (can't be a person!)?
my macbook - while I can survive without food or water, I MUST be connected to the world's goings-on!
4. One life-changing moment?
The biggest would have to be my first email to my husband - blind set-up by email and it definitely changed my life.

5. One movie that makes you cry every time?
I don't watch many movies more than once, but am a frequent cryer at movies....
6. Who would play the handsome hero in the movie of your life?
Jason Statham

7. How long have you known your oldest friend?
since first grade - Jen is my oldest friend and like a sister to me
8. Your favourite book/movie/song?
I don't have a favorite book or song, but love the Wizard of Oz

9. Three dream cities you have yet to visit?
Morocco, the countryside of Viet Nam, and Prague
10. Three things still on your bucket list?
do more European road trips with my husband, see Viet Nam, return to India - wow, all travel related, and yet this is what gets me the most excited.

11. School days - happy or sad, good or bad memories?
Happy - I tend to forget the bad in the past
12. What - or who - always makes you feel better on those more challenging days?
hands down - my husband. he knows me better than anyone and knows exactly what I need on a bad day.

13. Recommend a blog to us?
Forty Six That Grace .... love the writing and photography.

14. Happier now than you were at 20....honestly?!
ABSOLUTELY! Happier now than I have ever been

Please describe yourself in ONE WORD ONLY :)

And finally, what is the one thing you know for sure?
I know that happiness and grace on the inside make a girl prettier on the outside.
Plain and simple.

Kim writes lives just outside Seattle and writes Kimberly Taylor Images....

She is an accomplished photographer and all of the images you see above are hers.
She has a gorgeous home complete with handsome husband, FOUR boys and a variety of animals :)
She loves France, has travelled extensively, she's a great cook and a wonderful friend.

I have known her for over 10 years now and it was she who got me into blogging.
Her blog/website is an inspiration  - as is she - and a lovely place to visit.

She 's the kind of person who makes you think - in the best possible way - that you should be doing more with your life and that there's a whole world of wonderful experiences out there :)
I want to be just like her....never gonna happen but I can but try ;)

Thanks Kim XX
