Happy New Year, 20 Questions, & Some Info.

To become a better blogger & for you all to get to know me a little better, I wanted to do the following questionnaire.
Also, for me to get to know you as well as contribute more to this blog, feel free to email me at with the following answers and a photo of yourself/ a picture that represents your blog, and I will love to post it for you! I always thought that when other bloggers did this, it was a simple and kind way of involving all kinds of bloggers in the community.
So here it goes--

1)      Why did you start your blog?
One of my best friends has a blog. She encouraged me to start my own! Also, I began reading so many different blogs that I thought, "Why not have my own place where I can comment and view others blogs while allowing them to get to know me a little bit as well." I really wanted to be able to share my thoughts on fashion, make-up, etc. as well as politics (although that has really not happened yet :l).

        2)      How long have you been blogging for?
Several months now!!

        3)      What do you enjoy most about blogging?
 I love learning and discovering new things from other bloggers; either about things I write about, or simply from reading what others post about. For example, I love to read reviews about products or find out about sales! Things I may have never known if it weren't for blogging.

        4)      What frustrates you most about blogging?
I definitely do not post enough!! I think I had a vision that my blog needed to be very high tech and fabulous like so many others, so I was not very motivated to post. However, I now realize that I need to do my own thing and hopefully someone out there will appreciate it :) Also, I am a college student so I am super busy! I definitely need to and will start posting more with the new year :)

        5)      How much time a week do you spend on your blog / reading other people’s blogs?
I go on my blog everyday!! Although I do not post very often, (or when I do, I go through spells of posting or not posting at all), I always am viewing my feed and browsing other blogs. I love it! :)

        6)      What advice do you have for aspiring beauty bloggers?
 I honestly feel like I am not a huge person to be giving advice on this one. All I can really say is to be true to what you want your blog to be about and always remain positive :)

        7)      What other hobbies/interests do you have?
I enjoy reading, working out, shopping!, watching television and just enjoying the wonders that life brings.

        8 )      How many bottles of nail varnish do you own?
I actually just started purchasing nail polish again! When I was younger, I had so many! However my collection dried out and ran out and I simply found myself getting my nails done and not owning many polishes. Now I own about 10 and am planning to expand my collection.

        9)      Do you set yourself a shopping budget, or do you purchase on an as-and-when basis?
I definitely am on a budget. I am a college student! I definitely feel that I buy items as I need them, however I also do go shopping every once in awhile and purchase items I do not necessarily need.

        10)     What is your favourite make-up brand, and why?
I have always loved MAC. I used to get my make-up done there for school dances and the money put down to save a spot for your appointment would go towards make-up! I simply love the brand because they have such a wide range of products and I feel like everyone could find their basic products needed there. Also, they DO NOT test on animals and that is a big requirement for me to buy from a brand! For this same reason, I have been enjoying Urban Decay and think their products are also amazing!

        11)     Do you ever leave the house without wearing make-up?
I will at times, however I always try to put a little on just so I look a little more presentable in public and feel more comfortable in my own skin :)

        12)     What is your favourite beauty product and why?
 Hmmmm.. hard question. I think my current favorite beauty product is the MAC 180 Powder Brush. It is more of a tool, but after using this icky Bare Minerals own that felt so gross on my skin, this one is SO nice! I will definitely be posting about it soon :)

        13)     What is your favourite nail varnish of all time? (yep, only one!)
 I don't particularly have a favorite nail polish. However, I do always love pink polishes and brands such as OPI and China Glaze never do me wrong :)

        14)     Tell us about the best holiday you’ve ever been on
I absolutely adore going anywhere sunny. Whenever Washington is rainy and I go somewhere that is warm and the sun is shining, I think it is amazing!

        15)     What would be your ideal day off?
 My ideal day off.. I think I would sleep in just a little while. I would get Starbucks (my fav.) and go do a little shopping. Then possibly go to a movie and go to a nice restaurant where I could get yummy food haha. I definitely would make sure it was a relaxed day however because I do not like the feeling of being rushed on days off.

        16)     What is your favourite TV show?
 I actually just did a post about this :) My current favorite TV show is Pretty Little Liars! It actually will be premiering again in two nights and I am SO excited!! If I had to choose a show that I have enjoyed for a long time, I would choose Law & Order: SVU. I could watch that show for hours! (& I do sometimes) :)

        17)     What music do you enjoy listening to?
I love music that is fun to sing-a-long to! Main stream pop radio is alright, however I love my country music!!

        18)     What is your favourite food?
Definitely pasta! I absolutely eat pasta all of the time and just love it! haha

        19)     Where would you most like to visit in the world? (money no object)
 I would simply just love to travel! Although I prefer tropical, sunny locations; I would also like to travel to each continent and it's countries!

        20)     Tell us a secret…
Well if I told you a secret it wouldn't be a secret, right!? Haha. Just kidding.
A fun fact would be that I didn't have a facebook until about a year ago! I had one before that, however only for a short while! Very random, kind of boring, however I don't really know what else to say :) haha

I hope you enjoyed reading this post & remember, feel free to send me your responses at !!


  1. I love this post! I had a grand time reading and learning more about you! I'm definitely not as much of a beauty buff as you, but I'm game for filling out the questionnaire - it'd be fun!

    And MAC is definitely my go-to brand for eyeshadow. The pigments are so rich!

  2. Loved this post and reading your responses! Haha - your answer with Law and Order SVU is just like my husband. It is on here every evening at 7 and on Tuesday there is double episodes with an old one and a new one and he watches it alll the time. It is one of the few 'mainstream' shows he has actually gotten into. He loves it!

    Hope you had a great time with your family and Happy New Year!

  3. What a fun post! I love reading all your responses. Pasta definitely tops my food list as well. Happy New Year!
