The 10 Questions:
1. Why did you create this blog?
-I first created it to have an outlet to express how lonely I was. Not such a great way to start a blog. BUT, by reading an OU alumni's blog at Fairytale Beginning, I decided that I wanted to change up the blog. I wanted it to be a way for me to remember what it is I love about my life, what it is that I think makes it beautiful day in and day out, and a way for me to remember 50 years down the road what was important to me at the time I wrote it :)
2. What kinds of blogs do you follow?
-I seriously follow ALL KINDS of blogs! I mostly follow the blogs that my friends own, and when I am out and about looking for new blogs, I read through a couple of their pages and posts to see if they write about things I am truly interested in. And a couple of blogs I follow simply because they make me laugh. I'm not big on fashion blogs (just because I have NO sense of fashion myself), but I do love the cooking blogs I find (since I will have to begin cooking for myself soon).
3. Favorite make-up brand?
-ohh man, I'm not really a "make-up" kind of person. I mostly use eyeliner and mascara....but I do love eyes.lips.face. (or e.l.f.) simply because everything is $1 and I can try new things without spending a fortune on them!
4. Favorite clothing brand?
-I LOVE Vanity! It is a little boutique-type store that has jeans long enough for me at a REALLY reasonable price! I also love GAP clothing, probably because I worked there for a year and a half.
5. Indispensable makeup product?
-mascara and chap stick :)
6. Favorite color?
-I hope my background/banner/text color give a clue here, but hands down it's purple, which is kind of ironic because I'm not a big girlie girl.
7. Favorite perfume?
-I prefer body splashes because they aren't as potent, but I have two that I wear, Live by Jennifer Lopez, and Love Kills Slowly by Ed Hardy. (No judging, I really love the non-overpowering floral-y scent that is in the Ed Hardy perfume!)
8. Favorite film?
-I'm TERRIBLE at picking favorite things....I love all kinds of movies, and for the most part it depends what mood I'm in as to what movie I want to watch... SOME favorites include: Grease, Pretty Woman, Dirty Dancing, Love & Basketball, The Ugly Truth, The Hangover, The House Bunny, Harry Potters, Saws.
9. What country would you like to visit and why?
-Again, there are so many! I want to travel all over! But I truly think the one country I want to see most is Greece for many reasons. It didn't fit into my tour that I went on in 2006, the pictures from the coast are always gorgeous, and there is SOOOO much history within the country that I would probably pee my pants from so much excitement.
10. Would you rather forget to put mascara on one eye or forget blush on one side of your face?
-I think mascara . . . I don't really wear blush, and at least with the mascara, I could easily make it look somewhat normal . . . maybe . . .
