Current Favorite Influencers

Hey, guys! Happy Monday!

I don’t know about you, but I love finding new influencers with amazing content and sometimes I just want to give them the recognition that they deserve! I’m coming at you with a list of amazing women that you should follow!

Jessica Kelley @therealmrskelley

Not only is Jessica a body positive role model in my life, but she is a positively fearless and confident woman who is  unapologetically herself. I can’t tell you how much of a difference it makes to have someone on your feed who is showing that they love themself. I used to hate what I saw in the mirror and I have slowly started to change my view on myself. If I could copy anyone’s style, it would be hers!  Jessica also has a lot of cool content on plants, DIYs, and makeup, so check her out on Instagram and give her a follow!

 

Bekah Martinez @whats_ur_sign

Bekah is another strong woman who shows the world that women are a force to be reckoned with! I first saw Bekah when she was on The Bachelor and she was instantly my favorite! There’s something about her spirit that is so calming and peaceful and I love the presence she has. She recently gave birth to a beautiful baby girl and watching her entire pregnancy journey was stunning. Bekah has such a positive attitude and all of the products that she endorses are from good brands that I always end up loving. Another fun fact? She and her friend Jess have a really cool podcast called Chatty Broads!

Malori Clark @malorisclark & A Walk Through My Closet

Y’all, I have known Mal for a while now and her sassy spirit and good heart are infectious. She was one of my first blogging friends and it is such a joy to see her grow and get the audience she deserves! It’s so exciting to see a friend get more features and recognition and Malori deserves it! I love her content and fashion style and I love trying to recreate her outfits with items I have in my closet. If you want to follow someone with great style, go follow Mal on Instagram and read her blog A Walk Through My Closet!

These three ladies are some of my favorite influencers and I hope you check them out! Who is your favorite influencer? Let me know in the comments below!

It’s Here: Glitz & Glitter Spotlight

GGSpotlight banner2

Hi, babes!

Welcome back to part 2 of the Glitz & Glitter Spotlight! This is another list of blogs I am loving at the moment and I truly think you should support these bloggers! I have a few more installments coming after this, so be ready for more amazing blogs!

My Passion Projects

Maud is the lovely owner and creator of My Passion Projects, a blog where you can find so many resources on writing, self-help, exploration, and personal development.  The layout of My Passion Projects is so clean and feminine, which is something I love! Maud has really put so much heart into My Passion Projects and I know you are going to love it as much as I do.  There are also freebies and tips, so you have no reason to not check out Maud’s site! The link is in the blog title! (*wink*) Two of my favorites on MPP are the Starters Guide To Living Healthy and 10 Highly Inspirational TED Talks.

I’ve Found Waldo

Melina, what a darling! Her blog I’ve Found Waldo is so chic and I love all of the bullet journal posts she has.  I really admire people who keep bullet journals because that stuff takes commitment.  Melina is an overall fun person and I love her social media feeds.  Two of my favorite posts on I’ve Found Waldo are 2018 Bullet Journal Set Up and 2018 Skincare Routine .

Born To Be Bright

Sofia’s blog Born To Be Bright is everything I love in the blogging world.  Her site layout, the themes, and the vibes from BTBB are stellar and I love how you can see all the though she puts into her blog.  I also really like supporting bloggers who have been around for a bit and Sofia started blogging back in 2013.  One of my faves on Born To Be Bright is Stay Moisturized This Winter because heavens know I need it!

Soulful Seeds

Zahra’s blog Soulful Seeds is a great site for how to live a great life and grow spiritually.  From forming healthy relationships with food to killing 5 bad morning habits, Soulful Seeds has many resources to help you along in your spiritual journey.  Zahra’s site is so chill and gorgeous and she is so welcoming. Check out Zahra on Twiter and Pinterest for even more inspo!

Beauty Folio

So I know what you are thinking: “Mimi, what’s Beauty Folio?” Well, since you asked, Beauty Folio is the gorgeous creation from Emma, natural beauty lover.  Her blog is beautiful and I love her posts on Glossier, beauty boxes, and product reviews.  I always love reading about natural beauty products or ethically made products because if there are good products to replace some of the brands I currently use, I am all for it.  Make sure to connect with Emma on her Twitter and gorgeous Instagram feed!

The Thrifting Ginger

I love book bloggers and YouTubers because they have such a fun blogging category.  They can get lost in a book and then have an outlet where they can tell everyone their thoughts.  Plus by reading a book blog post on a book that I may want to read, I can get a better insight on the book itself and determine if I still want to read it or not.  Raylynn at The Thrifting Ginger does just that and her blog is so enjoyable to read.  I particularly love her post on Dancing for Degas. She also loves thrifting (if you couldn’t tell by the title!).

Homebird Hang-Ups

Animals, books, mental health, and home…sounds like a great blog, right? The answer is yes, yes it is.  Homebird Hang-Ups is a blog that has all of that and more in one place.  Claire is a great person and I love seeing her journey through blogging.  Two of my favorite posts on Homebird Hang-Ups are You OK Hun and St. Lucia Likes, Loves, and Loathes.  You can also find Claire on Instagram (trust me, you’ll want to follow her feed!)!

That’s all of the blogs and bloggers mentioned in this part of the Glitz and Glitter Spotlight! The third part will be out soon and I can’t wait for you to see the other blogs!

I hope you all have a great week and a fabulous weekend!

Mystery Blogger Award

Hi there, babes!

I know it has been a while, or at least it seems like it to me. I’m trying to schedule two posts per week while I have the Glitz & Glitter Spotlight series running, so it would be one regular post and one GGS post. Today’s post is a regular one, as I am sure you can tell from the title!

Taiwo @ Stuffed Shelves nominated me for the Mystery Blogger Award and I am so thankful to her! I had hit a mini roadblock when it came to inspiration so hopefully this will kick me back into gear!

Here are the rules for the award:

  1. Put the award logo/image on your blog
  2. List the rules.
  3. Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  4. Mention the creator of the award and provide a link as well
  5. Tell your readers 3 things about yourself
  6. You have to nominate 10 – 20 people
  7. Notify your nominees by commenting on their blog
  8. Ask your nominees any 5 questions of your choice; with one weird or funny question (specify)
  9. Share a link to your best post(s)

If you haven’t heard of the Mystery Blogger Award, it is a special blogging award created by Okoto Enigma a few years ago and has been gracing the internet since then. The Mystery Blogger Award is another way to spread extra positivity on the www and make someone’s day!

Three things about me (you might already know all of them from previous posts)….hmm..

  1. I love music from the 70s and 80s- can’t get enough of it! If you catch me listening to music, it’s probably Fleetwood Mac, Hall and Oates, or Jim Croce. I can’t go a day without music and I carry 2 pairs of headphones with me at all times.
  2. I have a weird obsession with watching World’s Strictest Parents, Wife Swap, and My Strange Addiction. I find them fascinating and I always watch them before bed. Most of the time, my watch history is full of those videos. And TED talks!
  3. I’m trying to get back into artistic things, like water color painting again and sketching. A few months ago, I went out and bought painting supplies and I’m slowly getting back into it. I personally think I am awful, but I am trying not to get discouraged!

Taiwo has 5 questions for her nominees and I am answering them below!

  1. What is the best thing that has happened to you?
    Gosh, I’m not sure! I think being accepted into college and knowing that I was in the next step to a great career was one of the best things that has happened so far.
  2. What do you do apart from blogging?
    Apart from blogging, most of my life revolves around schoolwork. I am about to graduate into university life and I am technically already there, as I have 2 classes on campus already. I’m working on Film Appreciation and Freshman Composition II so I can get those classes out of the way before I am a full time college student.
  3. What’s your best season?
    Hmm…summer or fall. I love the fall time because I adore sweaters, scarves, boots, and so many other fashion things that beautifully blend with fall.
  4. What does your dream life look like?
    Okay, so this might be so basic but I truly would love to find myself happily married and with kids. In that life, I would love to blog full time or have a separate career and then blog part time. I want to live in a comfortable house where there is plenty of space inside and out that is near nature and open spaces. I really want kids, though. I can see myself with a house of ginger babies and I can teach them and take them to so many museums and raise little intellectuals!
  5. If you could be an animal, which would you be?
    This is a difficult question! I do love mountain lions, also called cougars. They are so sleek and dangerous! Something about them is exciting but scary at the same time.

So that is all about me! It is time for nominations and I am tagging the bloggers here and via Twitter instead of commenting on their blogs. There are certain blogs where I am unable to comment on their websites, so that is why I am letting them know on there.

N O M I N E E S

Maud @ My Passion Projects
Marielli @ The Latina Beauty Fix
Melina @ I’ve Found Waldo
Amy @ Amy Adores
Becca @ Becx Blogs
Shaine @ Wanderer in Neverland
Kaelin @ Living in Saturn

Here are my 5 questions for my nominees:

  1. What is your favorite thing about blogging?
  2. Are you a fan of blogger chats on social media? Why or why not?
  3. What is your favorite food? (I’m sorry this might be a hard question! I have way too many favorite foods to pick just one!)
  4. What was the last movie you saw in the cinema?
  5. If you could have one thing on your shopping wishlist right now, what would it be?

I hope you all enjoyed this post! If I tagged you and you don’t want to do it, there is no obligation to do so! I love these tag awards and I hope you do, too!

See you next week for a new post!

Blogs I am Loving banner

Happy Friday, my babes!

I am sure you have seen blog posts like this on other sites, but I am happy to finally be spreading some love and spotlight some blogs that I am really enjoying at the moment and I think you should follow.

Curly Hair Vegan

Briana encourages her readers to live a healthy life and she has so many great articles on food, lifestyle, and spirituality. She created CHV to encourage people to go back to the basics and shows just how easy it is to live a healthy lifestyle that is fulfilling, productive, and overall filled to the brim with positivity. Briana is one of my favorite bloggers and I always enjoy reading her blog posts. When I get an email update in the morning, I’ll typically open it and read the post first thing when I get up. A touch of positivity at the start of the day is always a good idea! Two lovely reads on Curly Hair Vegan that I had a splendid time reading are about oil pulling and the benefits when adding it into your routine and how to make scrumptious Buddha bowls.

Brighton The Day

You have probably seen her pins floating around Pinterest in the most fashionable ways or looking great on Instagram while spreading such a great message, but if you haven’t, Brighton Keller is an incredible blogger who uses her platform for only good and positive. Her outreach is rather large and her Instagram stories really speak to her followers and they can relate to them. I love Brighton The Day because it is the one place I can go when I need a good bit of fashion advice, yummy recipes, a boost in my faith, or just a good laugh. Brighton is the kind of person who makes you feel like you have been friends for a long time and I love that about her. Two of my favorite posts on BTD are a list of Brighton’s fave Christian Podcasts and It’s Okay To Not Be Okay.

Elegant Living Everyday

Jennifer Lynn and I have been following each other on Twitter for a bit and we sometimes run into each other in the same circles, which is so fabulous because I love seeing fellow blogging ladies furthering their careers and interests. So what is her blog? Elegant Living Everyday. No, not just on date night or ladies night, but every single day. She takes you through a life’s journey to live beautifully all the time and always keeps things as real as can be. Jennifer’s blog will help restore elegance in your life and I love it. Two of my favorite posts are How To Begin Your Journey and What Does It Mean To Live an Elegant Life. Both will be great to help kickstart your elegant journey!

Tea and Maz

Mariam is a brilliant blogger and I am so in love with her blog! Tea and Maz focuses on mental health, lifestyle, inspiration, and books, all of which are part of living a wonderful and full life. Her website is absolutely beautiful and you also must follow her on Instagram! Mariam is a beautiful human being and I know you are going to love her as much as I do! Two of my favorite posts on her blog are 23 Things I’ve Learnt In 23 Years and her post on Daniel Wellington Watches (I love a good watch!)

Learning Lily

Lily is a beautiful soul who I originally met on Twitter, probably while going through a blogger chat or follow group. She is such a great person and I adore her. Her blog, Learning Lily, is all about travel, lifestyle, and fashion, 3 of my favorite things! Lily’s blog is absolutely stunning and I can’t wait to see more of her accomplishments in the coming year. Two of my faves are In What Ways Is Instaram Affecting Us and Reflecting on 2017. Check out her posts and leave her a comment!

The Pink Paperdoll

Abbie is the mastermind behind The Pink Paperdoll where all things lifestyle meet unique vintage and eco-friendly natural living. Her dog Perry makes occasional appearances and he is the cutest lil bean! I do love the overall feel of The Pink Paperdoll and it is such a cute blog. You can really tell Abbie has put time and hard work into everything she does. Good job, queen! Two of my favorite posts on PP are In Praise of Old Books and 4 Unique Places To See In South Dakota.

You may have seen on Twitter this past Monday that I asked for blogs to have in this post. I asked this for a few reasons. One, there are so many blogs out there that have yet to have exposure or views even if they are amazing, so I was hoping to get smaller blogs more views and deserved exposure. Second, because there are so many blogs out there, it can be hard to come across certain blogs and while some of these blogs have a bigger reach and follower base, that doesn’t mean they aren’t amazing. I also wanted to find more blogs that I would love and want in the Glitz and Glitter Spotlight!

To bloggers who responded to my tweet and your blog wasn’t featured in this post or the next ones, I apologize. Your blog is amazing and because I got such an overwhelming response, I am not able to have decent sized posts that don’t go too long, even with a second part coming next week. However, I do think all of the blogs are great and for those blogs who didn’t make the Spotlight, I am going to quote retweet the links you sent me and say what I liked about your blog.

I received and read through 77 blogs in one day and when I started out, I only expected to get 5 or so, if that. Seeing all of those blogs was incredible. There were book bloggers, lifestyle, beauty, fashion bloggers, mental health bloggers, and everything under the sun. You all expanded my views and touched my heart with some of your stories. You each deserve your own separate blog posts because you are so unique.

If you liked this post and can’t wait to see the next installment in the Glitz and Glitter Spotlight series, I would truly appreciate it if you shared this post. Not only will it help Glitz and Glitter, but it will help the bloggers featured.

Who is one of your favorite bloggers? Let me know in the comments!

I hope you have an absolutely fabulous Friday and a great weekend. I’ll keep you all updated as to when part two will be up next week, so make sure to follow me on Twitter to stay in the loop!

Lots of love and hugs!

Liebster Award pt. 2

liebster2

Hi, loves!

Yesterday I got a notification that I was nominated for the Liebster Award again! I have been nominated a few times and I want to apologize if you nominated me and I never got back to you or thanked you for the nomination.  I am truly awful at responding to tweets and things, so I sincerely apologize!

The blogger who nominated me is Ashley from It’s Ashley Marie (her links will be below!).  Thank you so much, Ashley! You are a sweetie!

So to complete this nomination, you are supposed to give 10 facts about yourself and answer the 6 interview questions (the questions that I answer, you will answer if you accept the nomination!).  I hope that makes sense! 

 

10 Facts About Me

 

  1. I think I am a weird mix of extrovert and introvert.  There are some cases where I am a very exuberant and out-going person, but then there are other times when I want to hide behind a curtain and never be seen by anyone.  
  2. I don’t know what my Meyers-Briggs personality! I know everyone is always saying “Oh, yeah I am totally an INTJ.” but I have no idea what that stands for! Honestly, I say “integer” in my head when I see that..it makes no sense, I know.  So let’s find out what group I am in, shall we? (about a 5 minute time lapse..) Okay, never mind.  It costs about $45 to take the official test and I don’t care that much to pay for it.  
  3. I am going to be majoring in fashion marketing next year!
  4. My favorite nail design is the ever classic French manicure! There’s just something about that perfectly drawn white nail tip that is so fetching!
  5. I’m currently working on writing a script for a play…we’ll see how that goes.
  6. I’m pretty old school when it comes to dating.  I want to get to know the person as a friend before I consider dating them and when I do date someone, it is because I can see a possible future with them.  Is that old school?
  7. I think men are 100% more attractive when they wear a tantalizing cologne! Woodsy amber scents are my favorite!
  8. I love camping and hiking! A few of the places I want to camp or hike are the Ozarks, the Smokey Mountains, and Colorado.  You bring the organic snacks (yes, organic tastes better!), I’ll bring the tent and camping bags!  
  9. I would really like to own a cabin somewhere in the woods where there are pine trees for miles! It has to have a nice deck where I can sit and have my morning coffee or tea while I enjoy the fresh air.  I basically want to buy a cabin in Ruidoso, New Mexico! If you are ever looking for a great place to vacation and have a good chance at seeing elk, go to Ruidoso! 
  10. I own one painting! I bought it for under $5 at a small sale and got it framed.  I don’t know why I love it so much, but it is the first piece of art that I purchased, so it holds a place in my heart! The artist is a woman named Elizabeth McHugh and I haven’t been able to find any other information about her, but, Elizabeth, I love your art. 

 

A Short Interview.png

 

  1. What is one place you haven’t been that is on the top of your bucket list?
    Definitely the UK! I want to see all of it! There are so many beautiful places that I have seen on Instagram from the UK and I want to go see them in person!
  2. What is the most daring experience you have had? 
    I just recently went to an amusement park in OKC and there was a roller coaster that did a circle loop and you would be upside down when you went in that loop.  I was so terrified of falling to my death! It was so much fun though, so I ended up going on it another 3 or 4 times! The other experience was last year at the Tulsa State Fair and they had a ride that goes up in the air and stops, then unexpectedly drops to the ground! My bum rose out of my seat and I knew it was the end.  But the straps and bar held me in, so I am here to tell you how I almost died and flew straight into heaven!
  3. What is your greatest accomplishment?
    Goodness! I can’t quite say.  Getting accepted into my choice for uni definitely is up there.  I’m happy I was accepted because I only had one definite backup where I was already enrolled!
  4.   What is your biggest fear? 
    I honestly have so many that it is hard to list all of them! I fear the lack of love and happiness, that everyone secretly hates me, and that I am never going to be successful in anything I want to do.  And suffocation..I fear suffocation greatly.
  5. What’s a hidden talent you have? 
    I can do a weird thing with my eyes when I look up and they look funny.  I call it Gecko Eyes.  One ends up farther apart than the other one.  It’s quite strange! 
  6. What’s an activity, craft, or sport that you want to learn to do?
    I would love to know how to sing properly! I love singing but if it comes to more than just jamming out in my car in the mornings while I am driving to uni, then all bets are off! I don’t tend to sing in front of others because I value their ability to hear! 

 

Here are my nominees for the Liebster Award! 

You guys don’t have to do the post if you don’t want to! It is a fun post and helps readers get to know you, so I personally love these posts! 

I hope you all have a great Sunday and the rest of the week! I’m off to my first blogger event today and I am going to take lots of photos and have a blog post about it next week! 

Lots of love and hugs!

Spooky Films for Halloween | Blogtober

Spooky Films banner Blogtober

 

Hello, babies! Welcome back to Glitz & Glitter!

Today’s spooktacular post is in collaboration with the lovely Meggan (aka Cardigan Jezebel) and Blogtober here at Glitz & Glitter is all about fall, Halloween, and everything trick-or-treat! As I am sure you can tell by the title, Meggan and I are writing about creepy and cool films that will last you throughout the Halloween season!

My list of films are ones that I have watched and I love to watch every October! Grab a cup of witch’s brew and let’s fly!

An American Werewolf in London

15489203818_c098a5fd2a

David Naughton plays David (so incredibly original, I know!) the American who, after being bitten by a werewolf, transforms every full moon into the hairy beast that is a werewolf! There is a lot more back story to the film, though. David and his friend Jack are backpacking in England and they stumble into a pub (The Slaughtered Lamb!) only a few hours before the next full moon (dun dun dun!). They end up being kicked out of the pub and end up lost on the moors. They are attacked by a werewolf and only David survives, but there’s a twist! David carries the last of the werewolf’s blood and is now part of the bloodline. I’m going to try to stop myself here because I don’t want to give all of the film away, but there is a lot more to the story! If you stumble upon this movie while you are about shopping, buy it or rent it! It is a great Halloween movie!

Edward Scissorhands

Okay, Edward Scissorhands isn’t directed towards Halloween, but it is a Tim Burton film, so it can count! If you love Johnny Depp, Winona Ryder, and the amazing Dianne Wiest, you will like Edward Scissorhands! It is rather strange but it is very very cool and you should watch it at least once in your life! Johnny Depp has scissors for (of course) hands, which makes some aspects of life very difficult, but he has a talent for making amazing characters and shapes out of yard hedges, giving a poodle a new poofy ‘do, and all of the ladies funky hair! I love Tim Burton and this is a great film for any time of the year, but perfect for cuddling up on the couch with a Halloween themed popcorn munch mix (coming out in another Blogtober collab on the 27th!)

Ghostbusters

ghostbusters-1515155_960_720

Ghostbusters is a classic! Whether you watch the 1984 original with Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and Harold Ramis (fave!!), or the newer 2016 revamp with Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and Kristen Wiig, your Ghostbuster choice will be the boo of the ball! I am a fan of both versions, but I love the original just a little bit more. I’m all about the originals!

Jaws

Dun dun…dun dun…dun dun dun dun dun dun DUH DUH DUUUH….

Jaws is the reason you sneak up behind your sister in the pool while trying to recreate the famous tune out loud (or in your head..gotta keep the element of surprise) and smack her leg under water or lunge at her. Just me? Okay.

I love Jaws and it is possibly my favorite Spielberg film. It has suspense, blood, peril, all of the stuff that makes a good thriller! Bring that into the water and you will have hundreds of kids afraid to stick their big toe into a puddle! Good job, Steven Spielberg! Now, there isn’t really anything about Jaws that makes it directed for the Halloween season, but this post is all about spooky or scary movies and Jaws scared me for years. You see one head pop out of the side of a boat and that’s it.

Beetlejuice

4768961856_edce58d29c

Beetlejuice..Beetlejuice…Beetlejui- wait! Can’t say it thrice!

Ah yes, another Tim Burton film! What twisted things (or cool, in my opinion) must go on in that beautiful brain to create such films! Burton brings another classic with Michael Keaton, Alec Baldwin, Winona Ryder, and Geena Davis (my queen!).  The first time I saw Beetlejuice, it really freaked me out, but now I have a weird appreciation for it.  I also really love Michael Keaton, so that might be another reason why I love the character Beetlejuice.

Onto our final film of the list!

IT

clown

Oh, yes, people with coulrophobia! Prepare to be freaked out..or mildly upset.

Tim Curry plays IT, aka Pennywise, aka The Dancing Clown. Now, I am sure you have heard of the recent remake of IT, but we are all about classics here at Glitz and Glitter and Bill Skarsgård won’t be breaking up this party! Sorry, Bill.

I have only seen the original film and while I do actually want to see the new one, I have no one who would want to go see it with me and I really don’t want to go by myself. I think strangers find it particularly offending when you jump in the lap and scream “HOLD ME!” while crying into their neck. If you have seen the new one, leave me a comment and tell me what you think of it! New or Old?

So back to the film! Pennywise is a clown (duh, Mimi.) and he terrorizes a bunch of kids in a town and bites off the arm of my favorite child, Georgie. If the killer clown epidemic ever comes back, I will run at one with a saw in my hand, screaming “This is for Georgie!” I am still not over Georgie.

A group of misfit kids come together to get rid of the clown (which is also an alien, I believe.) and once they realize he runs on the fear of others, they try not to be afraid of him, or at least not show their fear. It works, he leaves, but IT returns years later and the kids have to own up to their childhood promise of returning to their town if the clown ever came back. I hate the original ending of IT because I have zero closure and that is not okay.

There you have it, loves! My rundown of my favorite films for Halloween! I’m not really into super scary movies or ones that involve demonic possession, so that is why a lot of good and frightening films aren’t in the list. Scares me for lifetimes.

I hope you have a great Friday and a fabulous weekend! Please go read Meggan’s fabulous post on her site here!

This post did go up late and I apologize. I slept in later than I intended and I have a memorial service to attend today, so this is kind of rushed.

If you did enjoy this post and can’t wait for more spooky fun this month for Blogtober, I would love it if you gave it a like and shared it on Twitter or any other places on the interwebs!

Personal Tag: From One Blogger To Another

Blogger Tag banner

The lovely Marielli ( Unpredictable Mom blog and SweetxSour Beauty) tagged me to do a blogger tag where you answer 11 questions from the person who tagged you and then you answer the questions in a blog post and tag more people! I love blogging tags because you guys get to know more about me and I end up learning more about you guys also. The questions I have to answer will be first up, then the questions I will be asking to the bloggers that I tag. Just like in the last tag, my answers will be the italicized following the questions.

Marielli’s Questions For Me:

What is something you’ve always dreamed of doing? I have always dreamed of a lot of different things. I am that person who dreams so big that they will probably never fulfill half of what they want to do! My biggest dream is to travel before I settle down. I want to go across the globe and see everything! At the very least, I want to visit France, the U.K., Italy, and the rest of the U.S.

 What made you start blogging? I started my first blog on Blogger around two years ago with every intention of using it as a personal journal sort of thing. I only ever posted three times on there (all with promises of posting more) and I ended up deleting that blog and account about two months ago. Now I have Glitz and Glitter! Glitz and Glitter is the outlet of my creativity and passions. I love trying new products and writing about lifestyle things. So I guess you could say that I started blogging because I wanted to let out some of my creativity.

Whats behind your blog name? When I was setting up my WordPress blog, my mind went totally blank as to what I should name my site! Everything that I liked were variations of other titles (blog, movies, or otherwise) and were lacking the pizazz that I wanted. I wanted something catchy, that described me and my platform, and that might be interesting. Thus, Glitz & Glitter!

Name something you love to eat but is bad for you. (candy, junk food, certain drink): Any type of baked goods! Cake, cupcakes, pie, literally anything that falls under that category!

 Have you ever traveled outside your home? That depends. Out of my home state? Yes, a bunch of times. There is only so much to do in Oklahoma! But I have never traveled outside of the U.S. That kind of fuels my need for traveling!

Rain or Shine? I like a mixture of both, but it depends on what type of mood I am in. If I am sad, depressed, lonely, etc., I love a good thunderstorm! Thunderstorms tend to soothe me anyway, but the sound of rain and distant rumbles of thunder is a perfect friend for a sad mood. If I am happy and positive, bring on the sunshine!

Ever been in love? Nope!

How many times do you post in a week? I post once a week (every Monday!) and I’m hoping to post two times a week soon, but we will see how that blends in with my schedule!

Whats your biggest fear? Being alone/never finding love. The thought of never finding someone who I love and who loves me back unconditionally is really sad and scary to me. I am a very social person and a romantic on top of that, so I truly hope that there is a guy out there for me!

Are you a morning person or night person? I am in between. I am really productive (like this morning, for example) in the morning when I have a lot of motivation or there is something that I really want to do. But then again, I also get a lot of work done at night. Listening to jazz, making more graphics, and scrolling through Instagram and Twitter, that’s my thing.

What’s something you hope to make out of blogging? I would love to inspire others or help them in some way, while at the same time supporting things that I believe in. If something I do helps someone else, I feel like I have actually accomplished something in my life. If someone reads my posts, goes through my social media, or talks to me, I hope that a bit of happiness has been added to their day 🙂

There you have it! Below are my questions for the bloggers I am going to tag. Before we get into that, just know that this is totally optional! If you are tagged and don’t want to complete it, that is up to you! You are not obligated to do so.

General rules about this: If you do decide to do the tag, make sure to link the person who tagged you and answer the 11 questions they asked. You don’t have to tag anyone once you write your part of the tag. You can answer the questions and leave it at that, if that is what you prefer to do. If you do tag others, make sure to write 11 questions for them to answer!

My Questions:

  1. What is one quality that you look for in a potential romantic partner?
  2. What is your favorite body wash product at the moment?
  3. Favorite film?
  4. What is a song that touches your soul (Sad, happy, funny, etc.)?
  5. What is your blogging platform and why did you chose that one?
  6. Goals that you would like to complete by the end of 2017?
  7. What is your favorite perfume/cologne (if you wear one)?
  8. What is one thing from your bucket list that you want to do, but is also thrilling to you? (Ex: sky diving, bungee jumping, etc.)
  9. What was your cringiest date that you ever went on?
  10. Favorite place to go to?
  11. Scale of 1-10, how bad do you think your drivers’ license (or ID) photo is? (1 being not bad at all, 10 being absolutely horrible)?

 

Those are your questions! I tag Maggie , Saffy, and Anna to do this tag!  Again, if you don’t want to do the tag, you do not have to!

I hope you have a fabulous day! See you back here on Monday with a new review!

XOXO
