TAG: 13 Personal Questions

I was tagged by the beautiful Kelly at The Patch Diaries! Thank you for tagging me :)

What do you order at Starbucks?
If it is warm outside I order a Café Vanilla Frappuccino Light with whip. If it's cold I get a Skinny Vanilla Latte with three Splenda!

What's one thing in your closet you couldn't live without?
I'm not really too attached to my clothes and there isn't anything in there that I can't live without. I gained weight during my pregnancy and still can't fit into a lot of my favorite clothes... I would have to say my black Reef flip flops. No one makes a better pair than Reef!

What's one thing people don't know about you?
I'm kind of an open book, so I don't know that I have any interesting secrets. I spent 3 months in Southeast Asia and it changed my life. I was in Singapore, The Philippines, Indonesia and Malaysia. Click HERE if you'd like to learn 50 random facts about me!

What's one thing you want to do before you die?
My dream is to travel all over Europe and visit New York City.

What is one food you can't live without?
Peanut butter M&M's

What's one quote that you live by?
"Everything works out in the end. If it hasn't worked out yet, then it's not the end."

What do you like and dislike about the blogging community?
I love interacting with people that have the same unhealthy obsession with all things beauty. It sounds cheesy, but I feel like I have friends all over the world because of blogging. I love reading comments and commenting on other blogs... which leads me into what I can't freaking stand. I despise the "Great blog! Please check out mine! I will follow you on GFC or Bloglovin' if you follow me!"  How about you piss off! :)  

What is your number one song on iTunes?
Probably "Stinkfist" by Tool... I listen to metal when I workout and Tool is my favorite :)

What kind of style would you describe yourself as having?
Simple and classic... I like clean lines and clothing/accessories that are timeless.

What is your favorite number?
87... hand down. I don't know why but for as long as I can remember this is the number I use when I'm exaggerating.

Two hobbies?
Online shopping and makeup... as sad as it sounds I have no other hobbies, lol. I spend a lot of my free time playing with or taking care of my son, so when I have "me" time it usually revolves around cosmetics :)

Two pet peeves?
Lip smacking... there is nothing that annoys me more than someone smacking their lips!

When you are standing in line at the grocery store and someone is REALLY close to you with their cart. Like seriously, can I have some room please?

Your guilty pleasure?
Mine are pretty similar to Kelly's! The Real Housewives and food.... lots of food. :)

Let me know if you do this tag so that I can read your answers!

Much love,


  1. Thanks for tagging me dear! I'll be certain to do this one soon XD Lip smacking is totally annoying! The whole follow me & I'll follow back is something I don't really like either about the blogging community. I have, however, have found that there are many wonderful people that have an unhealthy obsession with makeup...making me know that I'm not the only crazy one around!

  2. I agree with the whole "Great blog! Please check out mine! I will follow you on GFC or Bloglovin' if you follow me!"

    HOW ABOUT NO ʘ‿ʘ
    These comments are rampant, jeebus.

    1. I agree with you on the whole "follow my blog" thing. It makes their initial comments seem less than genuine. I read a few other blogs that actually do not allow linkups like that at all (they delete the comments). I like that, especially when a lot of times, you can find good hints and tips in the comments, and that just saves you a lot of unnecessary crap to sort through. ~Sarah L.

    2. I agree! I feel like people's work/blog shouldn't be measured through how many followers they have, but the content, and if people are just following people because they felt obligated due to these 'follow for follow' type comments, misery ensues because they're not reading something they're interested in :(

      I think linkups at the end are fine, because it's like "hey, I'm going to leave this here in case anyone is interested", but it's not like "HEY LOOK AT MY BLOG PLZ AND FOLLOW K"

      And I agree! You can also find good hints and tips in the comments, which is what makes the comments section less aggravating c:

    3. I think it's totally fine if someone contributes a thoughtful comment and then leaves the link to their blog... I do it all the time! :)

      I'm not sure why people even leave those spam "follow for a follow" comments, because I'm sure as hell not going to check out their page! Now, on the other hand, if someone takes the time to read my post, then comment with their link I ALWAYS check out their blog. It seems like common sense to me!

    4. Agreed! It's the best way of engaging with the rest of the blogger community!

  3. What about you piss off? LOL! I think the same when I read those comments :)
    I wanna travel to NYC too! You live wayyy closer, you should go!


    1. I'm glad you liked that ;)

      It's so expensive to go there. I will definitely try to go soon!

  4. I love the quote you live by! Mine is and always will be "Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick and pull yourself together." - Elizabeth Taylor.
    It just sums my attitude to life up in one go! Haha, lovely post xo

    1. I can't believe you've never heard of them!!! They are freaking amazing!

  8. Great post, I like reading tags - you get to know more about the person behind the blog! :)

  9. Yayyyy!!! I'm so glad you did this post :) OMG Peanut Butter M&M's are my downfall!!! You can't eat just one! You have to eat them all!

    And omggggg I hate it when people stand super close to you at the grocery store too! Or any line! Haha give me my bubble!


    1. I can't buy the "share it" bags of PB M&M's because I will seriously eat every last one of them! :)
