Ten on Tuesday

First one of the year! And so perfect since I haven’t been able to get a real post out yet. Thanks Chelsea! 

1. What did you get for Christmas?

All practical stuff, which I love. The in-laws got us a vacuum, the bro-in-law got me a Starbucks card, and my parents got me a bottle of perfume since I was out and a new pair of sneakers.

2. Have you taken down your Christmas decorations?

Yup. We didn’t put up a tree this year so I made a “Christmas wall” with cards we got, our stockings and ornaments my friends gave me. Took them down last week (except for the cards)

3. What did you do for New Years Eve?

Went out to a bar for the first time ever. Came home pretty early though.

4. Do you like accents?

Considering I have one…yeah. I don’t like my own though, ha.

5. What kind of television do you have?

The flat kind.

6. Did you make any changes at the beginning of 2012?

Nothing that I haven’t already been working towards in the last few months.

7. What’s the last book you read and do you recommend it?

The Hunger Games series. YES.

8. Do you stay current on celebrity gossip?

Not really.
9. Do you know the words to Bohemian Rhapsody? Gangstas Paradise? Fresh Prince of Bel-Air?

Do you want me to bust out in song right now? Because I just started singing Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song to my cat.

10. What is your favorite education television show?

It’s Academic. I have a warm spot in my heart for that show since I was on the team for a bit in high school.

Ten on Tuesday

1. How many blogs do you read every day and what are they? (I’m talking the ones you NEVER miss)

I don’t get to read blogs everyday anymore but if my favorites like my Numbah 2, Tricky, LiLu, Doni, Rachel, Chelsea, Rachel, Jennifer, DShan and Jenn post, I always make time to read them.

2. How many “best friends” do you have? Do you have different “besties” for different areas of your life?

I have different besties for different areas of my life, but there are a couple, like Courtni & Rosie who will always be the FIRST ones I go to, no matter what. They know me inside & out, and have been there every step of the way for the past 5 years.

3. What’s your daily make up routine?

I hardly wear make up, especially in the summer. When I do, it’s usually just some eye shadow, mascara and lip gloss.

4. What is your ideal girl’s night?

Depends on our mood. If it’s going out, it’s going dancing and having a ridiculously good time. If we want to stay in, it’s chilling in our most comfortable clothes, watching super cheesy movies and laughing about the most ridiculous things.

5. Do you keep up with your nails/toenails or are they au natural?

I really should, but I don’t. If I put on nail polish, I won’t get around to fixing it until it’s chipped to the point of no return.

6. What’s your best roommate story (assuming you had a roommate at some point in your life)?

Last year, during one of the snow storms, Andrew & I wandered down to H Street with one of my roommates because there was nothing else to do. It was one of the most ridiculous fun we’ve had in a long time. Unfortunately, the friendship didn’t last.

7. What’s your “go to” outfit that you wear more than anything else?

Jeans, sneakers and a t-shirt.

8. Do you have a beauty secret?

Drink lots of water.

9. Did you read Seventeen magazine growing up?

I don’t think so. I read it on and off but not regularly. I was more of a book reader.

10. How did you learn to put on makeup?

My mom taught me my senior year in high school. And then, I learned what works best for me as time went on with trial and error.
