This Is Real, This Is Me.

I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be now...gonna let the light shine on me!

Every time I go to title a blog post, all I can think of are song lyrics so I've decided just to roll with it. Here's your soundtrack to this blog post, courtesy of my childhood.

Anyways...I was nominated for the Liebster Award by Jorden at Showered In Sequins! This award is to promote new blogs and encourage blogger collaboration... I'm loving the blog world already and scrolling through my Bloglovin' feed is another addition to my bedtime routine (as if I didn't need another thing to keep me from going to sleep...but whatevs.)
Anyways, here are the questions that Jorden gave me to answer, so here ya go!
1. What is your blog about in a nutshell?
Documenting my life's little moments, my thoughts and feelings, and anything else I feel the urge to write about :)

 2. Lady Gaga or Katy Perry and WHY?
I'm honestly not a big fan of either, but I'm always up for some Katy Perry when I'm jamming in the car.

 3. If you had to choose one clothes store to shop at, what would it be and why?
Forever 21. I could live my life in their comfy sweaters and $15 jeans. 

 4. What inspires you generally?
I am so incredibly inspired by the people around me! I try to learn something from everyone I meet and am just motivated by the successes/beautiful characteristics of the people I'm surrounded by.

 5. What is your favorite song currently?
Asking somebody as indecisive as me what their favorite fill-in-the-blank is almost mean...especially because I'm always studying so that usually means classical music... but I'm loving anything from the Frozen soundtrack and this beautiful rendition of "How Great Thou Art" by Carrie Underwood.

 6. Any cool make up tips you have or something you do you can share with us all?
My best tip is to not wait until 5 minutes before you have to go somewhere to do your make up...because that's what I do about 50 75% of the time and it doesn't always work out in the best way.

 7. Lip gloss or Lip stick and WHY?
Lip gloss all the way. I just don't consider myself someone trendy enough to pull off the lipstick I'm too obsessed with Bath and Body Works mentha lip gloss to use anything else.

 8. Who is your secret celebrity crush?
Hmmm.. I'm quite the Hunter Hayes fan. Sometimes my sister Riley would repeatedly watch the Storm Warning music video and fawn over his adorableness...true story.

 9. Where do you shop the most? Retail shopping.
Hmm.. I'm kind of all over the place but I love Forever 21 and Target. College budget. What are you gonna do?

 10. What is the piece of clothing you cannot live without?
Probably my favorite jeans from JCPenny that I always buy multiple pairs of and buy the same exact ones every time I wear them out. And I'm still crying that last time I went to restock I discovered they changed them to STRETCH jeans. Which is a little disappointing because I really prefer when my jeans are not falling off after wearing them for a day (or 2 or 3....)

 11. And last but not least what is your favorite app??? and why??
Twitter, Twitter, Twitter. Got 5 minutes to kill? Scroll through and get your laugh for the day.
