Sunday Social - 3rd Edition

What is your all-time favorite song?
I literally cannot choose one. Music for me has always been about a time and a place. After watching the movie "Always Famous" and listening to director/writer Cameron Crowe speak, he gave me the idea of making playlists of my life, and so...beginning in 2005 I began making monthly playlists. These are literally the songs of my life. I do not have a single favorite but here are a few of my favorites and the lyrics that have left an imprint on my soul...

The Fray - Enough for Now

"But that's enough for now, he should've never left you broken
He should've held you, things your father never could do
That's enough for now, he would've never left you broken
He would've held you, things your father never told you

Breathing comes in pairs
Except for twice
One begins and one's goodbye

Sixty years of sorrow he got 5 or 6 of bliss..."

Dierks Bentley - Home

"Free, nothin’ feels like free,
Though it sometimes means
We don’t get along
‘Cause same, no we’re not the same
But that’s what makes us strong

From the mountains high
To the wave-crashed coast
There’s a way to find
Better days, I know.
It’s been a long hard ride,
Got a ways to go
But this is still the place
That we all call home."

Pink - Glitter in the Air

"Have you ever looked fear in the face and said, 'I just don't care'?

It's only half past the point of no return
The tip of the iceberg
The sun before the burn
The thunder before the lightning
The breath before the phrase
Have you ever felt this way?....

Have you ever been touched so gently you had to cry?"

James Taylor - You Can Close Your Eyes

"Well the sun is surely sinking down, but the moon is slowly rising.
So this old world must still be spinning round and I still love you.

So close your eyes, you can close your eyes, it's all right.
I don't know no love songs and I can't sing the blues anymore.
But I can sing this song and you can sing this song when I'm gone..."

What is your favorite singer/band?

I think Dave Matthews is truly a lyrical poet, but the Fray is a close second. 

What is your theme song/song that best describes your life?

I think the songs listed above are a good start, I don't think my life can be summed up in a single song. 

What songs put you in a good mood?
Anything that brings me back to a great memory or moment in time, it's hard to go wrong with Dave Matthews, Elton John or the Fray...

What is your favorite road-trip music?
Anything from the 1960's and 1970's

What song are you embarrassed to admit you love?
"Can't Help Falling In Love," by Elvis Presely, there's something about his voice in the beginnign of this song that catches a little bit of my soul every time I hear it :) 

Much love,

Sunday Social Linkup!

One of the things I love most about blogging is discovering new blogs & people and getting to know a little about them and their interests. Link ups are a great way to do this and today I am pleased to announce that I will be linking up with the lovely ladies from A Complete Waste of Makeup & Ashley's Carnival Ride in their latest and greatest creation known as The Sunday Social!

How did you come up with your blog name?

To many Lady Elizabeth Grace may appear to be some silly moniker I came up with but it's actually a name with deep and personal meaning. 

Lady : My Grampsie was the most influential person in my life. He was a quiet gentle man,  whose voice still guides my life and whose virtues I strive to make proud. Our family lineage in England can be traced back to nobility and so "Lady" is my way of honoring my Grampsie, our family, and serves as a reminder to myself to always attempt to conduct myself as such.

Elizabeth: A family name as well as my middle name.

Grace: One of my favorite words, a lovely attribute to possess and one of my favorite names. I have a dear friend whose name is Grace who embodies and personifies not only grace, but style and elegance as well. She is one of the muses of Lady Elizabeth Grace. 
What is your favorite thing about blogging?

I love the creative outlet is has provided me. :)

What is one thing you have discovered because of blogging and now cant live without?

I take the majority of my photos for my blog with my iPhone, usually because it is the easiest and most accessible option at the time, and I love the apps Diptic & Instagram. I use both of them ALL of the time.  

Facebook or Twitter? 

I'm not going to lie, I'm a little surprised by my own answer but, Twitter. I've connected and stay in touch with some wonderful girls and fellow bloggers and we have a lot of fun.

If one celeb read your blog who would you want it to be?

 I just read this question and the first person to pop into my mind was Rachel Zoe. She has truly become the modern day fashion & style icon. 

What is something you want people to know about your blog?

My blog is truly an extension of who I am. A lot of people create blogs & are very focused on gaining followers, monetizing their blogs and really marketing themselves. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this, but it's just not who I am or what this blog is about. For those of you that do interact with my blog I hope you connect with it, I hope you enjoy it & have fun. Please don't hesitate to leave comments, email me or connect with me on Facebook & Twitter. I really love hearing from and connecting with you! 

I hope you have enjoyed the 1st Sunday Social, and I hope you have a great day.


* A special thanks to my friend Kelly at Mess.Dirty.Hair for introducing me to this wonderful linkup :)

Oh My Gucci!

One thing you may be surprised to learn about me is that I love cars. I truly do, and I am actually very knowledgeable about cars. I'm not much of a small car person, but last summer while in Europe we saw the Fiat 500 that I knew would be coming to the states shortly. It's an adorable car and it's the first "small" car since the Mini Cooper that actually caught my attention. You can only imagine how I now feel about this cute as a button car now that I've seen this...

The Fiat 500 Gucci Edition
 Gucci and Fiat have done an excellent job of combining the brands in a very understated fashion. 

I love the matte black finish...

But the styling of the seats and seat belts are truly my favorite feature of the entire car...

The highly recognizable Gucci stripe adorns the exterior and adds to the car's sporty personality.

Even the wheels are Gucci!

I think I've fallen in love.
It's not often that I'm smitten with an automobile but this chic & fashionable little number truly makes me swoon :)
