Thanks soooo much to the sweet and lovely blogger from A Glitter Mirror for nominating me! Check out her blog now for awesome fashion, beauty, and lifestyle posts. She’s down to earth, funny, and so relatable!
I’ve never been nominated for any of these but always loved reading people’s responses. Can’t wait to get started on my first so let’s do this!
What is your favorite subject to blog about?
This is kind of cheating because I can’t pick just one but my favorite subject to blog about is a tie between advice, makeup, and fashion because I can’t get enough of these subjects.
I love providing insight into things in life that seem unattainable or insurmountable if I know I can help. I’m also thoroughly addicted to makeup and fashion and always will be. I genuinely enjoy discussing these subjects.

Sorry I can’t pick one! I’d love to start blogging about my other interests too, as I have many, but I try to keep my blog streamlined and focused.
What is your favorite brand of makeup?
That’s a very hard question but I’d have to say overall my favorite brand of makeup is most certainly ColourPop. Their quality and prices are simply unbeatable.
Also their uniqueness makes them stand out to me. I love that they create amazing high quality products like their super shock shadows for such affordable prices. Plus they’re based in California so that’s awesome. My next favorite brand is Wet n’ Wild for sure for the similar reasons.
Where would you like to go for a week long vacation?
I would love to go to New York City or Paris.
I’ve always been attracted to both of those cities but the only things I know about them is what I’ve seen in movies and TV and have heard from other people. I’d be ecstatic to see them firsthand and walk the streets free, aimless, and happy.

What is/was your favorite subject in school?
My favorite subject in school was always art, followed by English. I’m a typical right brained person.

What is your least favorite color?
I honestly wear every color so this is a pretty hard question. I’ve considered this question seriously and intensely and decided I don’t really have one. I like everything from plum to pink to beige to mustard to baby puke green.
What is one makeup or beauty tip that you think that everyone should know about?
Probably the most important makeup and beauty tips I have are never skimp on skincare or primer!
Benefit Porefessional. $12 for small size, . 25 ounces. Ulta.
Always buy a good cleanser, moisturizer, anti aging products, masks, and wear a product with spf under your makeup. Your almost eternally youthful skin will thank you later. An effective primer will completely change your makeup game. Who doesn’t want their fave to look smoother and their makeup to last all day?
What season is your favorite?
Most definitely fall. I love the cool temperatures, the changing leaves, everything pumpkin, the fashion, warm tones, dark lipstick, Halloween, and honestly the season just makes me happy.

What is one thing that you like to do to unwind after a long day?
Watching YouTube videos and Netflix while doing a skincare mask. A glass of wine and some popcorn doesn’t hurt either.

What movie do you LOVE the most?
I love so many movies but I would have to say The Wizard of Oz or Rocky if I had to pick just one..I can’t though. The message of both movies and the way they impacted me when I saw them as a kid and a girl struggling through puberty are the reasons why.
I’ve watched The Wizard of Oz so many times and it’s become a part of my life. The music, visuals, and hopefulness it lends sets it apart as one of the best movies ever, in my opinion.
I first watched Rocky in a summer cinema class and it was the perfect timing. I proceeded to watch it whenever I needed a boost in morale. Adolescence can make you feel like Rocky going up against Apollo Creed.
I always kept the idea that it doesn’t matter how many times you’re knocked down but how many times you get back up and fight back that matters close to my heart too.
What movie do you HATE the most?
I’m trying to recall all the times I sat in a theater or at home and thought, what a waste of time. I hate a lot of horror movies. They’re unnecessarily gruesome and gratuitously violent in my opinion. One I really hated was Rosemary’s Baby. Though the clothes and the acting are great, the end and the ultimate meaning of the film wasn’t in line with my ideals and views on what constitutes a good movie in general.
What is one difficulty that you have had to overcome when it comes to blogging?
One difficulty I overcame when it comes to blogging is time management. Though I’m still working on it, I’ve made huge strides since I started blogging.

One way I succeeded at organizing my time more wisely and maximizing my blogging potential was by planning my posts and writing down notes.
When I get an idea or find a photo that inspires me I write it down or text it to myself. This has helped immensely. My next goal is being more effective with my words and less wordy.
