Delayed Blog Award Response

I apologize, SittingPrettyintheQueenCity, I didn’t realize you tagged me in a post until yesterday. But here are the answers to my questions and thank you for nominating me!! 

1) If you could go anywhere in the world where would you go?I would go to Prague. I have wanted to visit there for the longest time. My great grandparents traveled to the America from Czechoslovakia.  

2) If you have only 5 minutes to get ready, what is your beauty regime?

Toner, BB cream, powder/ bronzer, blush, mascara. 

3) If you were a Disney Princess, which one would you be?

My all time favorite princess is Belle, from Beauty and the Beast. 

4) Favorite fashion icon.

Lauren Conrad, but I also Kate Middleton! 

5) If you have to pick between one or the other to do your hair or makeup which would you do?

I would definitely choose makeup. I have thick, long hair and sometimes doing my hair is a chore. I tend to throw my hair into a bun on a regular basis. 

6) How old were you when you finally figured out how to have good brows? (haha)

About 16!

7) When did you start blogging and what’s your story behind it?

I started my first blog last October, when I traveled to Spain. I blogged about my experience abroad to share with my family and friends. While I was in Spain I watched a great deal of beauty vlogs and makeup how-to’s, I also love to write. So the combination of the two inspired me to start a blog.  

8) Where are you from?

I am from Ohio. 

9) Which post have you written that’s your favorite?

Hmmm, that’s a tough one. I would have to say one of the posts about travel. I loved traveling throughout Europe, it was an amazing experience.  

10) What brings you the most joy?

My family and friends. 
Happy Thursday! Xoxo

‘Must have’ basic wardrobe essentials – the full list

Fashion and Frappes

Closet full of clothes but nothing to wear? Join the club. This is one feeling I’m sure almost all of us have had at one point or another. In fact whenever I need to go somewhere I change my outfit at least  thrice before I’m happy with it, if at all. The constant pressure of changing fashions and wearing on trend clothing can make you crazy and frankly is quite unrealistic to meet. Unless of course you’re a runway model and get paid in clothes. In which case, lets be besties okay? 🙂

My Favorite Mascara Combo

 
I am a big fan of long lashes and usually have to wear three mascaras, I love mascara. I have recently stumbled across an amazing mascara combination. L’Oréal Volumissime Mascara Extra Volume in Extra Black has always been one of my favorites. Two weeks ago I went to Ulta and bought  Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes, I instantly fell in love with this product. When I purchased this mascara I didn’t realize one end was a mascara and the other end was fiber lashes. I love the length of lashes I achieve with this look. 

What are your favorite mascara combination? I would love to give them a try!

Paper Towns.

Such a good read.

Alexa.

To most middle-grade adults, the name John Green is heard at least once daily. This is an author who has stormed through young adult literature with a keen eye for the human emotional capacity as well as possesses a sense of humor known to the age group for which his work is intended. The first time I encountered John Green was in my 10th grade English class  where the teacher used one of his videos in order to help us learn about the French Revolution. I didn’t know that this was a famous author at the time; I just thought he was a really cool guy that had a sense for sharing information in a relatable manner. Eventually, though, I started hearing his name in the media more often. His book The Fault in Our Stars was being made into a movie and it became almost impossible to go on any form of social…

How you know you’re growing up

TheClassyRebel

I was sitting on my bed, and something dawned on me. I knew this thought was already true, but It wasn’t until that moment that I acknowledged the thought and came to the ultimate realization that my interests are so much more different than how they used to be. It’s like when you look back on what you used to do and how you used to act and you cringe. Like for me, I remember when I was in middle school I’d at times get so excited about something that I’d want to kiss someone, or stand on my desk and scream.  I thank God I don’t remember every time I did it, but the thought of me now dong it makes me shiver, but back then it was something that was a natural reaction for me.

Now of course, I have found different ways to relish in my excitement.
