Pug Crush Wild Wednesday Edition. Fabulous 45/365 {Suzanne, Garnish}

Welcome to the Pug Crush Wild Wednesday Edition:) Random Coolness week in full effect.

Today, crushing on the Garnish Girl. 45/365 ~Suzanne, Garnish

It's all in the presentation. I think, shop and lose sleep over the genius of Garnish. Garnish offers up brilliant packaging and presentation ideas for parties, food, home and gifts. Clean lines, understated and chic ideas to make all of your party presentations hip and happening. The Garnish blog seriously delivers with the DIY inspiration and unique packaging ideas. Suzanne is the girl behind the Garnish. She rocks. She's witty. She's charming. She's brave. She is the Packaging Princess. Extraordinary talent and she finds the coolest stuff-ever! Totally crushing on the Garnish Girl.


Fascinating facts about Suzanne

1. favorite color? I love a pop or orange.

2. favorite team? Which ever one has one of my boys' names on the roster.

3. if you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be? Since I'm guessing that Diet Coke is not considered a food, I'll go with cheese.

4. party trend you are crushing on? Anything that is old school. Remember the good ol' days of pin the tail on the donkey? Love adding a bit of retro in today's world. Or a little Mad Men trend for the bigger party goers. Simple is beautiful and I think there is a lot to be said for that.

5. party trend you are so over? Folks out there do such an amazing job creating beautiful parties. But rather than just replicating inspiration boards, I'd like to see more people change it up and draw ideas and then make it their own. For example, a buffet doesn't need to be lined up in neat little rows. This is a tough one for me, don't want to bite the hand that feeds me ;-)

6. favorite aisle in the craft store? Pens. I love the way a new pen feels and how the right pen can make my handwriting so much more fun.

7. do you wear Uggs? I live in the Northeast, we ski, I spend time in hockey rinks, I believe in being warm. So yes, I wear Uggs. But I also have a closet full of really cool shoes and boots!

8. do you really exercise? I do. It may not be every day but I love my skinny jeans and unfortunately they come with some body maintenance.

9. minivan or non-minivan driving? I drive the evil for Mother Nature...a big SUV. It may not be eco-friendly but during those 10 hour car rides we do three times a's awesome.

10. favorite holiday? Christmas at our cottage in my little slice of heaven - Muskoka. That's where our big ol' SUV takes us.

11. favorite smell? Every other Friday after my cleaning hero leaves my house.

12. do you color your hair? Yes, I enhance what my momma gave me.

13. do you think you're cool? I'd like to think that I have my moments.

Love Garnish! I totally agree with the favorite smell. My favorite day is every second Thursday-for at least five minutes until T figures out how to destroy the cleanliness!

Thanks for the Garnish love Kristy! Seeing my answers in print makes me feel sort of dorky but hey, that's life!
