How long I’ve been blogging: I’ve had a blog since 2010 but I’ve been blogging on blogger since April of this year. I’m kind of a blogger newbie.

Other blogs I love: Vivianna Does Makeup, Tanya Burr’s, A Beautiful Mess, The Blonde Salad, Song of Style, Sprinkle of Glitter, The Feminine Crusade and The Beauty Department are some of my top favorites.
Guilty pleasure: Mascara, frozen yogurt and shoes!
Last thing I bought: Boldy Bare lip pencil by M.A.C.
Dream job: Jane Keltner De Valle’s position at Teen Vogue.
What beauty product do you use the most? Mascara — makes such a huge difference on your face.
What is one thing in your closet that you will never get rid of? My jean jacket and white converse. Classics!
What’s your idea of an ideal Friday night? Movie night with lots of snacks and the company of my best gals.
Are you really a synchronized swimmer? I am! I’ve been swimming since I was nine years old. When I was 12-years old I discovered synchronized swimming and fell in love with it. Thanks to it, I’ve been to Barcelona and North Carolina to participate in different competitions. I’ve learned what the true meaning of team work is, and how to collaborate with twelve girls of different ages. I would say I’m a bit retired at the moment, though. I stopped for my senior year of high school, so I could get back on track in school and college. I miss it a lot sometimes, but I’m happy where I am in my life right now. I do still go to pools sometimes and practice to make sure I don’t lose too much flexibility and skill.
