School, Giveaways, and TAGS!

I am so sorry for the lack of posts. School has been taking up most of my time,
I have only two weeks left and I am trying to finish projects and cram for tests. 
I have also been working on getting more healthy, I have been eating healthier
and exercising more and I am already seeing more results! I have so much
more energy and I just feel happier. 

I have decided to do monthly giveaways! I will be starting them in June
because I did not want to start them mid month. I am so excited! 

QOTD: Do you prefer small monthly giveaways 
or big once in a while giveaways?

I also promise to do more blog posts and video tutorials this summer :) 

I thought I would take this opportunity to do a couple of tags :) 
I love doing tags because I like letting you all know a bit more about me
and I figured since I have some new followers a tag would be awesome!


The lovely and beautiful Jessica from Passion Start Butterfly 

 tagged me with the 11 Question Tag. 

What I have to do: 
I must answer the 11 questions that the person that tagged me asked.
I then need to tag 11 other bloggers and ask them a whole set of new questions. 

Jessica Asked: 

What state are you from?
California baby!

What is something that other bloggers do that urks you? 
I don't really have anything in particular but I guess
I don't like when big name bloggers begin promoting products 
and forget about what their blog was for in the first place. 

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
In 5 years I will be 22 years old and hopefully by then 
I am in med-school and working at Sephora or MAC :) 

How has blogging changed your life?
Blogging has definitely made me more outgoing and has made me 
more professional. I also feel that it has motivated me to be 
the best I can be. 

Who do you look up to?
I look up to my mom most because she is the most
strong and determined woman I know. She always encouraged
me to follow my dreams and she is always there for me. 

Describe your perfect girls night out. 
My perfect girls night out would probably consist of 
going out to a cute diner or dessert place and then
catching a chick flick at the movies :) 
Don't have many girls night outs though! I wish I did! 

Do you prefer YouTube gurus or blogger gurus?
I prefer blogger gurus now because I love looking at pictures
and getting inspired to try the look myself. I also feel that
there is much less hate in the blogging world and that is 
definitely a plus!

What is your ideal blog to follow? 
My ideal blog is a blog with awesome pictures 
and a clean sleek layout. 

What kind of car do you own?
I don't own my own car but my mom just bought a GMC Terrain :) 

If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you go and why? 
I would definitely want to travel to....
I know right? CLICHE. But honestly it has been my dream since
I was little and upon hearing that the biggest Sephora in the world is located there

Your favorite movie? 
My favorite movie is A Little Princess :) 

My Questions:
What was your most recent dream about?
Do you speak any other languages? If so, which ones?
What would be your dream job?
What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
Do you like sunny or rainy days?
What do you think about makeup bloggers that edit their pictures? 
Do you like broccoli? 
What is your favorite flower? 
Why did you start blogging?
Do you think you will continue to blog well into your life?
Do you have any phobias?
