TAG: 13 Personal Questions
Hey guys! So I was tagged by Sarah of Eyeshadowaddictsanonymous to do this tag. She's a pretty awesome blogger, I highly recommend you check her out! Sarah is a Mac Cosmetics Enthusiast and she is one of my go-to people for Mac related products! She is probably a main reason as to why I really want to expand my Mac Cosmetic Collection (which is highly dangerous, considering how I'm technically not suppposed to due to Project 10 Pan!). While I did do the 25 Things About Me Tag recently, I felt that this tag will let you guys know more about me. So let the questions begin!
What do you order at Starbucks?
For cold drinks, Passion Fruit Lemonade Iced Tea with Light Ice. For hot drinks, if I'm going for just a coffee I get the blonde roast, but if I'm going for something fancy I get the Mocha Cappuchino.
What's one thing in your closet you couldn't live without?
Jeans. They are an absolute staple in my closet that I don't know what I'd do without them. I completely adore darker jean washes, I feel like those looks the best on me! I'm now kinda getting obsessed with PacSun Jeans. They are so comfortable to wear and they have a decent selection of jeans there.
What's one thing people don't know about you?
This is something not as well known about me, so I'll share this fact! As much of an extrovert as I am, I don't do well with confrontations at all. While I can confront someone just fine, if someone confronts me I like freeze up and can't really respond back, even if they truly are wrong (and not me having a person bias). It's...weird. I guess its part of me that stayed as an introvert that hasn't changed.
What's one thing you want to do before you die?
Volunteer at a refugee camp. Preferably someplace where a lot of aid isn't being distributed. So, basically areas like Syria, Yemen, etc that aren't places people would typically go to volunteer. I would like to do this for at least a year, if not more.
What is one food you can't live without?
Rice. It's so sterotypically Asian about me, but I can't help it. Rice is such a staple for me and I start missing it if I don't have it for more than a couple of days.
What's one quote that you live by?
I have two quotes to share with you. The first one is "I will never apologize for being real with you". My honestly is something that has caused me to lose friendships throughout the years but this is something I can stand by. This one is the one that striked me the most recently: "Be very, very careful of what you put into your head, because you'll never get it out". With my stubbornness, I can completely see how this is true. I love reading Kush & Wisdom on Tumblr, they do quote blogs and they have a nack of having quotes I absolutely adore!
What do you like and dislike about the blogging community?
I've been on the online community for awhile now, so I've seen the good and bad of it since I was about 14. While I am fairly new with the blogging community, I have to say that my favorite thing about it is being able to meet new people with the same interests (makeup of course!) from all over the world. I honestly feel like I get to know them really well, through their blog posts, videos, and comments that they make online. I love it when I see people comment back and forth between blogs and develop communicate on a frequent basis! What I dislike about the blogging community is the pressure to get "big" and by trying to get big they will try to either get new followers using the "follow for follow" method. Initially when I started blogging, I didn't really mind it at first, but later on I was like, well... I'd rather have someone follow me because they genuinely like my blog. I know I'm not the most skilled makeup artist/enthusiast out there, but I do know that I am genuinely passionate with what I have to say about makeup. I also don't like it when people overtly sponsor products blindly, products that they basically know nothing about. I don't want to hear a review about a product solely based off of one or two tries, because you really can't see what you would like or dislike about a product based off a first impression (and not have it skewed by money). My ramblings are posted online because I thoroughly enjoy makeup and because I want to learn more about it! I always take my time in posting reviews, could be days, weeks, or even months before I decide to post a review because I am will not post a review without knowing how I feel 100% about it!
What is your number one song on iTunes?
Bad Romance by Lady Gaga. My favorite song of all time ^_^
What kind of style would you describe yourself as having?
A classic style, think of a girl who adores dresses and pearls ^_^
What is your favorite number?
To be honest, I don't have a favorite number!
I've gotten hugely obsessed with reading again. It started with the bet between my friends and I (which who can read the most books the quickest), and it has escalated to me spending money on (mainly) romance books. I am starting to branch out more and read different genres, but because I have stayed away from reading for so long that I've been taking it slow. After the grueling reading experiences in high school, I was quite turned off by reading and it took me a good 2 years for me to pick up a book to read for pure entertainment. My other hobby is shopping, which is highly addicting. I've eased up a bit on makeup shopping, but now I'm shopping for clothes, jewelry, etc.... I'm completely dreading tax free weekend now...cause it'll cause a huge dent in my pocket!
Two pet peeves?
When people shake their legs and shake the table I'm sitting at. It's SO annoying, especially when I'm taking exams. Also the words "Don't get offended by this...", well, if you are going to say those words, then OF COURSE I'll probably get offended by what you are about to say next. Just say it straight, and I'll take it as it is (hopefully!).
Your guilty pleasure?
I'm a huge foodie! I love eating out at restaurants and I love trying out new cusines. My friends hate me for it but I absolutely adore the concept of "hanging out" as eating good food!
