Hey everyone! I know it’s been awhile since I’ve done an outfit post/ been posting on a regular basis. I’m sorry that I’ve been so MIA lately. The middle of July-August was pretty hectic for me. I was juggling a pretty demanding math summer class and I was sick most of the month of August. I promise that I will be posting more and will be back on my blogging grind.

This has been one of my favorite looks lately. I love that it’s fashionable and comfortable at the same time.  It’s a look that can easily transition from day to night. For the shirt, you can wear a white tee or you can wear a band tee (I sometimes wear my Doors t-shirt with the outfit). I added a cheetah print shoe to make the outfit pop. I think adding cheetah print to your outfit is the perfect way to make your outfit stand out. I am one of those people who think cheetah print is a neutral, but that is a whole other conversation on it’s own.

Liebster Award

Hey everyone! Today’s blog post is going to be a little bit longer than what I usually post. The purpose of this post is so you can get to know me a little bit better. You will find out weird facts about me and if I’m more of a peanut butter person or a Nutella person. Before we start, thank you Mariah for nominating me. You can check out her blog here . 
Here are the guidelines
  • You have to link back to the person that nominated you.
  • Write eleven facts about yourself.
  • You must answer all eleven questions given to you by the person who nominated you.
  • After completing these questions, you must nominate eleven bloggers with under 200 followers and give them eleven questions of your choice.
  • You must not nominate the person that nominated you.
  • You must let your nominees know that they have been nominated and provide a link to your post so they can learn about the Liebster Award.

11 random facts about me ( I ended up doing 13, oh well)
  1. My middle name is Paige.
  2. I am ambidextrous, which means I’m both right handed and left handed.
  3. There is a 90 percent chance I will have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for lunch, 99.9 percent if it’s during the school week.
  4. I have a fear of possums.  They’re pretty much large rats and that terrifies me (shivers).
  5. I’m probably one of the worst people at answering my phone. It’s not you; it’s me (but really though). 
  6. My left foot is almost a whole size larger than my right foot. That pretty much means I have a love/hate relationship with shoe shopping.
  7. I ‘m an only child.
  8. Even though I’m from Texas, country is my least favorite genre of music.
  9. I’m allergic to pecans & pecan blossoms. Lucky for me, the state tree of Texas is a pecan tree.
  10. I’m one of the few people out there that doesn’t have a Netflix account.  I prefer recording TV episodes on my dvr.
  11. Scene It is my favorite board game. I ‘ve never lost.  I really enjoy movies/ movie trivia.
  12. One of my favorite things to do when I’m bored is to drive around and listen to music in my car. It clears my mind.
  13. My guilty pleasure is celebrity news/entertainment news. My dream is to become an entertainment news reporter/anchor.

Mariah’s Questions

If you could be any fictional character, who would you choose?
 If I could be any fictional character I would be Carrie Bradshaw.  I know it might be a cliché answer, but Carrie is fabulous. She has a rent-controlled apartment in New York City, a closet filled with clothes and shoes that any fashionista would kill for, an established career, and one of the best TV relationships with her husband Mr. Big. Her life seems pretty perfect to me.

What is the last movie/song/book that made you tear up?
The last thing that made me tear up was YouTube videos. I decided the other day to look up videos of soldiers coming come to their families and engagement proposals.  Every time I watch these types of videos, I get so happy for them I start to tear up. Which leads to an embarrassing ugly Kim Kardashian type of cry.  I know, I know it’s embarrassing, but I’m a softie when it comes to those types of videos. Especially the soldiers coming home to their love ones videos. If you ever YouTube those videos, prepare yourself because you will probably tear up.

What is your Favorite quote?
I don’t have a favorite quote of all time, but lately I’ve liked “ Normality is a paved road. It’s comfortable to walk, but no flowers grow on it.” – Vincent van Gogh.  Also, I like “ The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.” –William Shakespeare

Do you ever get mistaken as a certain celebrity?
I personally don’t think I look like any certain celebrity. I’ve gotten Taissa Farmiga from American Horror Story and Jennifer Love Hewitt. There are some similarities, but for the most part I don’t see it.

Would you rather read from a paperback or on a Kindle/Nook?
I would rather read from a paperback. I’m kind of old fashioned like that. There is something about having a physical copy of the book that you can hold and turn the next page that I actually enjoy.  I also just really enjoy looking around at bookstores.

Are you more of an outdoors or an indoors person?
I think I’m more of an outdoors person. Some of my favorite things to do are to go outside and explore new territory that I’ve never seen before. I love hiking, kayaking, playing sports, traveling, and also spending time with my friend’s outdoors. At the same time, I also love the indoors. Sometimes, I like nothing more than sitting on my bed and binge watch TV episodes/movies while I’m also on my laptop.

If you could go back in time, which decade would you visit?
Hands down the 60’s. There are so many things about the 60’s that I love. The fashion was inspiring; I absolutely adore hippie style and mod style. There are so many fashion icons for the 60’s that I can’t even count.  There are tons of bands/ artists that I love from that era. I wish I could have a time machine just to go back and attend those concerts, especially Woodstock.  Politically, people were standing up for what they believed in and voicing their opinions. I think it was by far one of the most interesting decades. I am definitely an inner 60’s child at heart.

Where is your dream vacation destination?
I would love to travel across Europe or go to an exotic beach like Bora Bora.

What is one life long goal that you have?
My life long goal is to be happy and enjoy life. No matter what I end up doing as a career, no matter who I may end up with, or where I may be living, I hope I’m happy and enjoying the life I am living.

Peanut butter or Nutella?
I am definitely  #teampeanutbutter all the way. If a food item/candy has peanut butter in it, I will probably enjoy it. I am one of those people who will eat peanut butter out of the jar as a snack. The obsession is going strong.

If you could switch places for someone for a day, who would it be?
Um I’m not really sure on this one. I guess I would switch places with the President of the United States. It would be interesting to see what’s it’s like to be one of the most powerful people in the country.
