20 Things about Me, Amber!
I've seen this around and I'd like to take a stab at it as well! So prepare yourselves, and I hope you learn a little something more about me! :)
How tall are you?
I'm 5 foot 8. I really love my height, I freak out when I am around girls who are taller than me, it's like HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE? WHY ARE YOU THIS TALL?
Do you have a hidden talent? If so, what?
I just asked my husband, I don't think so. ): CURSE MY AVERAGENESS!
What’s your biggest blog-related pet peeve?
Okay. I don't like when a blog lacks personality. This means that the blog is nothing bur promo posts or just standard reviews. I want to hear your voice either through comments, discussion posts, or reviews. I go to your blog because I want to know about you! :)
What’s your biggest non-blog related pet peeve?
Oh God, this isn't possible. I'm a very irritable person! Haha. I'm super OCD (like medically, not "omg, I'm so OCD lol") and cleanliness really gets to me. When there is a mess I have to clean it up. Of course, I don't want to spend my whole life cleaning up after people so that leads to mild irritation. Small things like not making the bed, not putting dishes away, and leaving things on the ground put me on edge. *twitches*
True story: I once stayed up to 2AM doing the dishes (while crying) because they were in my dreams. o.O
What’s your favorite song?
This is not a fair question. AT THE MOMENT, my favs are:
Habits (Stay High) Tove Lo
Cool Kids - Echosmith
Don't Wanna Dance - Elle Varner
What’s your favorite Etsy shop that isn’t yours?
I'll be honest. I've only used etsy once and that was for wedding stuff. I like browsing etsy, but it's not really my "go to" for shopping.
What’s your favorite way to spend your free time when you’re alone?
Don't judge me, but this is usually my schedule on my days off.
9AM - General cleaning up around the house
10AM - Update GoodReads // Twitter
11AM-Put on TV shows to catch up on (Modern Family, Criminal Minds, Stalker, Black-ish, Sailor Moon)
1PM - Put on some reality TV shows (Braxton Family Values, Housewives, Vanderpump Rules) and schedule some blog posts.
I watch reality TV because it doesn't require a lot of attention, I can't work in complete silence. And who knows, maybe I'll find some inspiration. :p
What’s your favorite junk food?
White chocolate. I don't like chocolate (dark or milk), I only accept white chocolate. Which I am told is not even chocolate - oh well.
Do you have a pet or pets? If so, what kind and what are their names?
Dude, I was BORN a cat lady. I got my first cat when I was like five years old. At the moment, I have two cats from a neighborhood shelter (ADOPT PETS, DON'T BUY!) and they pretty much complete me and Matt's family.
This is Bugs (or Bugsy as I call him)
Deville (or Ville-Ville or Douchebag, or Asshole)
They're the two best friends that anyone could have!
What are your number one favorite nonfiction and fiction books?
I don't really read nonfiction (I can't even tell you what the last book was, it was probably for class though). And as for fiction? Also an impossible question. Maybe The Great Gatsby or The Color of Water. I loved those books back in high school.
What’s your favorite beauty product or tool?
My eyebrow pencil. I have trichotillomania
so I can use all the help I can get with my poor eyebrows (and eyelashes).
When were you last embarrassed? What happened?
Psh, I'm always doing embarrasing things. Let's see, I almost fell down the platform stairs downtown, I talk to myself outloud...I don't remember what the most recent incident was. I awkward by nature, shit happens.
If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life, what would it be?
It depends on the season. Winter? Hot chocolate. Spring/Summer? Iced tea!
Question 14: What’s your favorite movie?
Puh-lease. For 2014 releases, I would say The Winter Soldier. And I AM a Disneyphile so I have to add my faves! I would say it's a tie between Aladdin and Princess and the Frog.
What were you in high school: prom queen, nerd, cheerleader, jock, valedictorian, band geek, loner, artist, prep?
I was the awkward anime kid. Is that a category?
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?
PROVENCE, FRANCE! LAVENDER FIELDS FOR ALL!
PC or Mac?
I have never owned anything made by Apple. I had a zune when everyone else had ipods (that's right, zune). Apple technology intimidates and confuses me, so I think it's fair to say I'm a PC girl!
Last romantic gesture from a crush, date, boy/girlfriend, spouse?
I was having a blah day earlier this week (I think it was last Sunday or last Monday) and ths hubs kind of picked up on it (it's not hard, I wear my emotions). So on his way from work, he picked me up a single rose, a teddy bear, and a card reminding me that I'm awesome. It was super sweet and made me a lot happier!
Chris Evans. I adore him, and I'm going to be really sad when he steps down from being Cap. Has anyone else seen his movie Snowpiercer? That movie left me feeling...uncomfortable.
What blogger do you secretly want to be best friends with?
The book blogging community is so awesome, I wish I could meet all of them in my lifetime! I do have a vlogger that I really admire. Naptural85, she's a hairy/beauty vlogger but she also has a basic life vlog as well.
