11 Things About Me

1. I’m super sensitive to spicy food. Almost all food is too spicy for me.

2. I am a coffee fiend. I love it, I can’t get enough of it. Latte’s are my favorite. My mother bought me a Tassimo for Christmas and it is amazing! I had a regular espresso maker before that but the latte’s never tasted as good as the Tassimo makes them.

3. Teal, turquoise, aqua are all my favorite. I also really like gray.

4. My mom is awesome!

5. I’m not really one to have celebrity crushes but there is something about Ryan Gosling that I don’t mind looking at. If you are into crafty/DIY stuff like I am then you might find THIS entertaining…I sure do!

6. I HATE talking on the phone.

7. I LIKE doing laundry. Towels are my favorite.

8. My favorite food is Middle Eastern.

9. I loooove animals. I grew up in a house with people that had severe allergies and was unable to have anything other than fish. I now live in an apartment where I am unable to have any pets (even fish!).

10. Even though I now live in San Francisco which is known as a major “Foodie City”, I really miss the food of Detroit.

11. I become addicted to things easily. Not of the illicit nature.

11 Questions From Natasha

1. What is your best childhood memory?

My grandparents lived about 5 hours away. In the summer my parents would drive me up and drop me off to stay with my grandparents for about a week. That time with my grandparents is time that I hold very dear to my heart. We would go camping, pick wild flowers, make blueberry pancakes with blueberries we picked the day before, etc.

2.Why did you start blogging?

When I came across the blog universe (blogiverse?) I was hooked (see #11 above). I read and read and read and I was so inspired and learned so many things. I wanted a place that could document all of my nail art but I also wanted to be able to inspire others and share with others the things that I learned.

3. What is the best compliment anyone has given you?

That I inspired them.

4. If a make-up collection were named after you, what brand would make it, what would the collection be called, and what would the story behind the collection be?

I’m not really that into makeup but I will try my hardest to answer this one…It would be by Benefit because that’s my favorite makeup brand at the moment. It would have neutral colors with lots of unexpected pops of color…hmm…that’s all I have for this one, sorry!

5. If you had to choose between having your nails one color for the rest of your life, what color would it be?

My answer might be considered a cheat but here goes…I would choose a pale creamy pink and then do different nail art over top of it that I could switch out. I used to do this when I got Gelish and Shellac (CND Romantique is one of my favs). One of my favorite polish shades is OPI We’ll Always Have Paris but I definitely wouldn’t want to wear it every day. I get bored having the same color, 3 days is usually my max.

6. Do you take vitamins for your hair, skin, and nails? If so do you see a difference?

No, I do not.

7. What type of shoes do you wear all summer long?

Sandals, moccasins, wedges, ballet flats, etc.

8. Are you more likely to buy things on sale, or are you willing to splurge?

I definitely search for bargains but I am willing to splurge on things I really want.

9. If you had to choose between having a mullet for a month, or no lashes and eyebrows (not even fake ones!) for a month which one would you choose?

The worst  hair cut of my life left me with a mullet of sorts and I made it work til it grew out enough to get it cut again. The top wasn’t super short, it was more like a shoulder length bob and then the part behind my neck was about 3-4 inches longer. Oh it was horrible!! Anyways, I would rock a mullet…I could figure out a way to style it to make it work.

10. Where is the best place you’ve ever travelled to?

Big Sur. It’s beautiful. I would post a bunch of photos but they don’t do it justice. You have to be there to experience it’s true beauty. Go ahead and do a Google image search, the images are amazing but they really don’t do it justice.

11. Do you collect anything?

Just nail polish!!

11 Questions From Zoe

1.) Favourite Film?


2.) Who is your favourite blogger?

3.) If you could have any job in the world what would you do? (Not including actor/actress or singer)

4.) What’s your favourite nail polish brand & colour?

I love OPI because of the brushes but I also love Zoya, China Glaze and Color Club to name a few. One of my favorite colors is OPI We’ll Always Have Paris. Another is Color Club New Bohemian or Age of Aquarius. My favorites change all the time.

5.) If you could only choose 3 food to eat for the rest of your life what would they be?

Bread, potatoes, chocolate. Horrible I know but I love toast and there are so many different ways to cook a potato so it would be hard to get sick of it and I have a major sweet tooth so I need my chocolate.

6.) What’s your go to nail polish colour?

Depends on my mood but I tend to prefer aqua’s or teal’s.

7.) If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?


8.) Whats inspires you?

I find inspiration everywhere…it can be just colors or prints or something someone says…I find many things inspiring in different ways.

      Haha thanks for tagging me! It took me forever! And then when I was just about to post it Zoe tagged me so I had to add those questions! I wanted to add pictures but I had already spent so much time just trying to think of questions and who to tag! Texting is definitely my preferred method of communication. I love folding towels! They fold so easily and so perfect and they are all soft and fluffy! It’s weird but it makes me happy!

  4. Mom Says:

    I love your answers and questions. I like your number 11 answer from questions from Zoe.

  5. Yay! Thank you for tagging me! I love reading these, it’s fun getting to know more about you! I especially love your answer about Ryan Gosling haha! I am not a fan of talking on the phone either. I always screen my calls. Thanks for sharing and tagging me! ❤
