Get To Know Me

I cannot be more excited that it’s Friday. It seemed like this week really dragged on, and left me feeling exhausted. Since I feel like typing away and venting a little bit tonight, I thought you might want to get to know me a little better. These are absolutely random questions that I thought would be fun to answer! 

Are you named after someone?
-Kinda. My parents were going to name me Molly, but they chose Christine after my great grandmothers middle name and the fact that I was born so close to Christmas. 

When was the last time you cried?
-Honestly I cry all the time. It was probably a couple days ago. I cry over a sad Facebook video, or a YouTube proposal, or any emotional movie. I’m also almost always crying of laughter. So yeah, It was recent. 

Do you have kids?
-Not yet, but I definitely want at least two. I am an only child, so I know what that’s like. I want a big family since all of mine has pretty much passed. 

Do you have a guilty pleasure? 
-I’m a total ice cream fanatic and I have one hell of a sweet tooth, so I would say it’s eating ice cream. I love a good ice cream sundae, or banana split and sometimes I feel guilty afterwards. whoops! It’s okay though, sometimes it’s alright to splurge. 

What is your favorite cereal?
-I’m not much of a breakfast person unless it’s the weekend. I hardly ever eat cereal, l but when I was a child it used to be frosted flakes or honey nut cheerios. During the week, I’m usually in a hurry, so I grab a banana and a granola bar and eat it in the car on the way to work accompanied by my coffee of course.

What is the first thing you notice about people?
-Their personality. I am very much a people person. I’d like to think that everyone is my friend, so when I meet someone for the first time I definitely notice if they’re kind of have a good sense of humor. Then I’ll move onto their fashion sense, someone’s outfit can say a lot about them! 

Favorite drugstore makeup brand?
Maybelline 

Favorite high end makeup brand?
NARS, Bobbi Brown, Marc Jacobs, Laura Mercier, Urban Decay.. They’re all fantastic!

What color are your eyes? 
-Hazel, but more on the brown side. They change colors. 

Favorite TV show?
-I have so many shows that I love watching. Some of my favorites are: Rookie Blue, Revenge, Chrisley Knows Best, Donnie Loves Jenny, New Girl, The Mindy Project, Orange Is The New Black, Chasing Life, Mr. Robot, and Shark Tank.

Summer or Winter?
-In California, Winter … Anywhere else in the world, Summer. My perfect climate would be sunny, blue sky, white fluffy clouds, 75 degrees. But I also love a huge thunderstorm.

What’s the furthest you’ve been from home?
-Considering I live in California, the farthest I’ve been is New York. The first time I had ever been on a plane, I flew across the United States by myself two years ago. My best friend moved there in 2013 to attend Parsons The New School for Design, so I visit every Summer. But traveling to Europe, is on my bucket list. 

Do you have special talents?
-I see the positive in everyone, and my happy, positive outlook tends to rub off on people.

Where were you born?
-Fresno, California … Although, sometimes I’d think Santa Cruz since I spent most of my childhood there. 

Do you have any pets?
-Yes. My boyfriend and I have a black lab/pit mix named Reddick, named after a Oakland Athletics baseball player.

What are your hobbies?
-Blogging. I used to research all things beauty and fashion related and read style magazines, and make inspiration boards. Now I can combine all that with my blog. I also really enjoy spending time outdoors and taking Reddick on hikes. 

Coffee or Tea?
COFFEE. COFFEE. COFFEE!!!  #LadiesWhoCaffeinate 
But I enjoy a cup of earl grey tea sometimes with breakfast or chamomile in the evenings.

Favorite movie?
Now that is a really hard one. Chasing Mavericks, The 40 Year Old Virgin, Pretty Woman, Sweet Home Alabama, 50 First Dates, Big Daddy, those are a few of my favorites. 

What color is your car?
-A dark merlot maroone color. 

Where do you want to live?
-California is a great state but I see myself moving up towards Washington or Oregon. My boyfriend Justin and I are considering moving within the next year or so since we have a lot of family and friends up there. 

Favorite Food?
Pizza. Every kind of pizza. All the pizza in the world… with a LOT of cheese!

Other random facts: I have a small obsession with squirrels, I buy an obscene amount of patterned ankle socks, I drink way too much caffeine that any human should consume in a day, I could eat ice cream at every meal, rainbow sprinkles make me happy, people say I’m a horrible driver (i beg to differ), and I love to love. 

Now that you know a little bit about me, feel free to leave a comment letting me know a little bit about you. Don’t forget to link your blog. Also, if there’s anything else you’re curious about that I didn’t answer, just ask me!

Have a lovely weekend. xoxo -Christine Michelle
