tag: my life in 20 questions

Every once and a while, I come across something that speaks to me. That happened recently when I saw the my life in 20 questions tag floating around! It's fun to, it's a good way to let you guys know a little bit more about me.

So, keep reading to find out my answers. And if you want to try this tag yourself, go for it!

Favourite colour: Pink! Without a doubt, pink is my favourite colour. It just makes me happy to see pink clothes, accessories, and well, anything else!

Favourite number: 7. It just always has been, I don't really know why.

Dream career: To be a successful writer, writing about topics I am passionate about...rather than whatever pays the most. Ultimately, I would love to be a novelist. I've actually written a book but haven't had time to devote to the editing process, lately.

Where do you see yourself living when you’re on your own? At this point, I really don't know. I always dreamed of spending a month or two living in London or New York City, but long-term, I'm not sure. I don't think the city is for me! Perhaps the suburbs are a place for me to stay.

Favorite way to travel: Probably the train? I don't enjoy the process of traveling but usually when I take the train, I can just put on my iPod and sit back.

What do you do in your free time? Not a lot. I don't actually have a ton of free time. I'm usually working at my full-time job or I'm doing my freelance work, blogging, applying for writing jobs....the usual! When I do have some time off though, I spend it with my boyfriend or go the movies.

Favorite clothing stores: Either Forever 21 and H&M. Great trendy pieces for decent prices. You just can't go wrong!

Who would you like to see in concert? Everyone! I love going to concerts. There are a lot of people I've seen that I would love to see again. Still on my bucket list? Cher and Christina Aguilera.

Favorite tea blend? I don't drink tea - or any hot beverages, for that matter.

Do you collect anything? Probably CDs, books, and makeup!

I can’t sleep without: My stuffed Dogbert.

If you were given 1 million dollars all for yourself what would you do with it? I would pay off my parents house, take a trip to Disney World, and write full-time.

Favorite make-up brand? NARS for sure. Benefit is a close second, though.

Favorite treat to eat? Chocolate! Oh my gosh, I love chocolate. It's so bad but I'm pretty sure I could eat it all day every day and never get sick of it!

What is your favorite season? I love the summer. During those months, everyone is more relaxed, makes room for fun activities, and wears cute clothes. What could be better? I am super excited for summer this year!

Do you sleep with your doors open or closed? Closed. I like to have privacy when I sleep. Plus, I don't want the dog to walk in.

Why did you start blogging? I had graduated from University and couldn't seem to find a freelance writing job. I was getting frustrated and wanted to write for an audience. So, I started this blog. I was able to channel my passion for writing with my passion for beauty. It was the perfect solution! And I ended up getting my first internship based on some of those early posts, so it all kind of worked out.

Do you have any magazine subscriptions? No. I don't usually have enough free time to sit and read a magazine. Every now and then I will pick up Cosmo, Women's Health, or Glamour, though.

What were you doing at 12AM last night? I was sleeping! During the week I have to be up at 6am for work so by the end of the day, I'm wiped!

Favorite perfume? This is tough because I am such a perfume addict. There are so many that I love! My favourite is probably from FCUK or Hidden Fantasy from Britney Spears.

I hope you liked this tag! Be sure to give it a try yourself...I'd love to know what your answers are.
