Today I am doing an “about me” tag. I like to include posts and tags that give an outlook into me as a person from time to time. I know in tag posts you’re supposed to tag others, so I tag anyone that wants to participate! I love reading these posts from others, so please join in if you please!
1. What do you think you can do but can’t?
Well, this is a tough one for me because I really am the type of person that believes I can do almost anything eventually. I will say grow. I am very short, and I wish I was about 2 inches taller so that I could at least reach my cabinets. Alas, growing taller is not one of my super powers.
2. What’s a difficult word for you to pronounce?
I can’t really think of anything, honestly. I have trouble initially pronouncing some words that I may have never seen before, but other than that I tend to over enunciate most words thanks to years of vocal lessons.
3.What are your favorite TV shows from your childhood?
Sailor Moon, Hey Arnold, and Dexter’s Laboratory. I probably have more, but those are just what’s sticking out to me right now. Yes, I watched a lot of cartoons.
4. What are your virtues and vices?
I think that I am a great listener and a very compassionate and empathetic person. I love listening to others experiences and I really enjoy meeting people from walks of every kind of life. It’s something that I look for in others as well. Cursing is probably my biggest vice. I have a potty mouth, and I’m okay with that. It’s not so bad that I can’t control it when around others I know aren’t comfortable with it and children, but at home I swear a lot. I also have a shopping problem…whoops.
5. What’s more important: love, fame, power, or money?
Of course, love is going to win this one for me. I will always cherish love over any material thing in existence. However, money is a bit of a big deal. I like being comfortable and able to provide for my family.
6. If you could live in any era/time period, when would it be and why?
I would want to be an aristocrat right before the French Revolution. I know that sounds strange, but I have seen Versailles in person and my gosh I would love to see how it looked in its prime with everyone bustling about…minus the chopping off of heads and such. Their style was so over the top and glamorous as well…it just interests me. With that being said, I do feel the way the poor were treated in that era was awful. My want to be to an out-looker aristocrat is just for curiosity’s sake.
7. If you had to redo your entire wardrobe with 2 stores, what would they be and why?
Does Goodwill count as a store? That’s where I get most of my stuff now as it is, because I find so many vintage pieces. I don’t know if I can live without thrift shopping. The other store would have to be Forever 21. I have a lot of pieces from there that are staples including lots of neutral shirts and shoes. I tend to go there for cheaper tees and accessories.
8. Can you recall what you were doing a year ago on this day?
I don’t remember exactly, but I do know I was pregnant with Piper at the time. So probably up constantly peeing.
9. Do you have reoccurring dreams? If so, explain?
I have a nightmare from time to time that I am in water and can’t breathe. Like I can actually feel myself not breathing…it’s so real. And then I always see something or someone approaching me in the water and I wake up gasping for air.
10. What’s your horoscope?
11. What does your dream bedroom look like?
Black and white with gold accents. The walls would be white and crisp as well as the bed spread. A nice black and white rug on the floor and little gold accents everywhere and a beautiful giant wolf painting hanging from the wall.
12. What position do you sleep in?
I’m a side sleeper and sometimes I throw my leg on things and straddle them…
13. What are your all time favorite films?
Woah, I have a lot of favorites. A few include Breakfast at Tiffany’s, The Lord of the Rings, Black Swan, Donnie Darko, any of the Harry Potter films, My Week with Marilyn, and so many more. I like to watch a good variety of movies.
I used the “poetica” palette from Kat Von D mixed with a few matte Nyx singles. Red Cherry #43 lashes. Nyx “cottage cheese” pencil as an inner corner highlight. Used my new bourjois healthy mix serum foundation and Nars creamy radiant concealer and wet n wild blush in “brush with destiny.” Mary-Lou Manizer highlight and LaSplash “Charmed” on my lips.
Thank you for reading if you made it to this point! I hope you all enjoyed.
