11 random facts about myself

1) I sing and play guitar, even write my own songs but only about 5 people have actually heard me sing!

2) I’m a ballet dancer. My boyfriend recently bought me new ballet shoes to get me back dancing again! He’s such a sweetheart. <3

3) My room is NEVER clean…but seriously, If it was clean I’d never find anything.

4) I LOVE Indie folk music. Iron and wine is amazing, look them up! J

5) I really enjoy going to plays but I don’t go nearly as often as I’d like to.

6) Rainy days are my favorite. Those days its pouring and you have nowhere to be. You can watch movies and cuddle up on the couch with hot chocolate and homemade pizza and do nothing all day. They are even better when Hunter decides to join me. 
7) I am in a club called Project Unify and I help out with the Special Olympics. There is nothing better than seeing those kids running across the finish line, their faces are filled with joy and they are so proud of themselves. I love being a part of that.
8) I could watch Grease every day and never get sick of it. 
9) I drink too much Coffee…the Starbucks near my house knows my order…
10) I have more clothes than any human being needs. 
11) My socks never, ever match. c:

Questions :)

What is your favorite color to wear?
 Usually white, I like the way white looks on people…elegant but you can really have some fun with white by going with some super colorful accessories
Do you have any piercings or tattoos? Or do you plan on getting any?
I have 7 ear piercings! I really want a nose ring one day and I do plan to get a tattoo, only one or two little ones would be nice.

What is your favorite film?
Titanic…I cry every time.

Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging to get my ideas out there and to get opinions on my outfits, hair, and everything else I post. I adore fashion, I found that it’s a great way to express myself and I knew blogging about something I loved this much would really make me happy.

Do you have a favorite motto/saying?
Well, I am a positive person. I am really about living life because I have known many people who weren’t lucky enough to live a long, happy life like I am doing right now. I say a lot, “Life is too short to miss out on being really happy.” That saying couldn’t be more true. This life is great, beautiful, hard, sad, exciting and of course, short. Be happy or you’ll miss so many of the great moments.

Do you have any pets?
Yes I do. I have a fish named Ponyboy, a cat named Holly and two dogs, Jack and Nola. I really want to get a kitten as well and I am searching for a good place to get one right now.

What do you think is your biggest achievement?
Gosh…I don’t know! Probably finishing all the twilight books in a week before the last movie came out, I didn’t have the other movies and I hadn’t seen them since they came out and I needed to catch up. :b

Backpack or handbag?
I’m more of a satchel kind of girl. I really dislike those tiny straps on purses. I like my purse with the long strap, so basically like Indiana Jones.

What are your favorite top 5 products to use in your makeup bag?
Well I could totally answer this question if I had 5 items in my makeup bag or if I even had a makeup bag! I always just have some Covergirl mascara, whichever one I decided to buy and chapstick. Oh, and I bring one of my many lipsticks with me if I decide to wear some that day.

Foundation or BB cream?
Neither. The only makeup I really wear is mascara and sometimes lipstick and occasionally eye shadow and blush when I’m going somewhere fancy.

Blog you'd recommend & why?
I’d recommend The Sist3rs, ( I really love their blog because its in more than one person’s perspective and I’m always happy to see that they posted something new but of course I’d also recommend Lizzie’s blog ( It’s really different and unique, I love sitting down and reading it.
