I decided to participate in the Get To Know Me Tag because why would you want to read someone’s blog without knowing a thing about them?
If you have discovered my blog in passing, welcome! I also have a YouTube channel with a video to go along with this very post. And if you were sent here from my YouTube channel, welcome to my blog!
Get To Know Me:
1. Do you have a middle name?
Yes, it’s Christina – after my momma bear.
2. What was your favorite subject in school?
In high school I loved math. And in college I loved my Dance Movement class because it was a nice break from all my boring business classes.
3. What’s your favorite drink?
Wine (Are we talking alcoholic?)…
4. What’s your favorite song at the moment?
That’s so hard! I have so many. Right now, I’m really
loving New Americana by Halsey. Her voice is cool and raspy and the lyrics are on point! It’s basically the anthem of our generation. I find the song getting stuck in my head even when I haven’t listened to it! I’m also really into all things local. Even though she is not from St. Louis, she is an “up-and-comer” so I’d consider that local. And she deserves the recognition. ALSO she gives you her music for free. FOR FREE! Who does that?! Halsey… You can download her jams HERE
I’m also highly anticipating 5 Seconds of Summer’s album. Their song Disconnected is also very relevant to our generation. It talks about how we need to remember to turn off the phone, TV, and computer every once in a while and just live in the moment with those we love.
If you want to have a listen to my current favorites, check out my Spotify playlist HERE!
5. What would you name your children?
No, no, no. Not going there. I’m too young for children. Although my mother will hate that answer.
6. Do you participate in any sports?
Back in High School I played tennis, basketball, soccer, ran track and I was on the dance team. Now, I play the Internet… I think that’s considered a sport, right?
7. What’s your favorite book?
I will forever be a Harry Potter series lover. But recently, I read A Fault In Our Stars by John Green and bawled my eyes out. The last time I cried in a book was the final chapter of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows!
8. What’s your favorite color?
PURPLE! But my friends will tell you it’s black. Only because I wear a lot of black.
9. What’s your favorite animal?
I have yet to meet an animal I don’t like. Except maybe a lizard or snake? Just because they don’t seem very cuddly. Especially a snake. They seems a little deadly, specifically if it’s cuddling around your neck.
10. What’s your favorite perfume?
I’m terrible at remembering to even wear any, but when I do it’s Elizabeth and James, Nirvana White. And I mix it with a little Mont Blanc cologne (yes, I know it’s for men, but it smells heavenly).
11. What’s your favorite holiday?
Honestly, I don’t think I have one. I’ve never really been one to get overly excited about holidays or birthdays. So, I’m going to have to go with Mother’s Day because I love my mom. She is the most amazing person in my life and deserves to be celebrated.
12. Have you graduated from High School?
I sure did. As well as graduate college with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration.
13. Have you been out of the country?
Yes, only once. On my final spring break in college I visited my best friend, Brooke, in London while she was studying abroad. It’s been my favorite vacation, so far. And I definitely want to go back, as well as explore many other places.
14. Do you speak any other languages?
Sadly, no, I do not.
15. Do you have any siblings?
Not biologically. I have a very large extended family, so I have a few step siblings.
16. What’s your favorite store?
That’s another tough one…There are so many! I guess Urban Outfitters, Topshop and Sephora would be my top picks. All of which are no good for my wallet.
Lately, I’ve been trying to shop locally, in St. Louis. Shirt Kong has been one of my favorite discoveries. They are a t-shirt shop that do screen printing as well as embroidery. Shirt Kong started from the ground up, with the help and support from other local businesses. So they are all about supporting local other businesses, artists, and musicians. Check out their online shop HERE!
17. What’s your favorite restaurant?
I don’t think I have one of those, either. But, I’d say the closest to having one would be this pizza place close to my dad’s house called Moretti’s. It has become a tradition that every time I go up to visit him (in the suburbs of Chicago) he will have one of their pineapple and ham pizzas waiting and ready for me. Yum!
18. Do you like school?
Yes, I love school. I enrolled at Paul Mitchell The School St. Louis last September and it’s a total dream. I’m finally doing what I love every day.
19. Who are some of your favorite YouTubers?
Tyler Oakley for sure! He was the first YouTuber I ever subscribed to and continue to watch religiously. Danisnotonfire basically speaks my life. I am convinced that he is the British, male version of me. Then of course Zoella, Tanya Burr, and Sprinkle of Glitter, who inspired me to make my own YouTube channel and this very blog! Others I frequently watch are Jenna Marbles, Troye Sivan, Marcus Butler, JacksGap, Caspar Lee, Connor Franta, Lizzie Velasquez, Michelle Phan, Alfie, BeautyLicious Insider, and many many more! You can see all my subscriptions on my YouTube channel!
20. What’s your favorite movie?
This is also really hard. Because I obviously love all the Harry Potter films, as well as all the Batman films. But I’m going to have to go with Corpse Bride. I really love Tim Burton.
21. What are some of your favorite TV shows?
This is the wrong question to ask me. I’m addicted to way too many shows: Grey’s Anatomy, Supernatural, Pretty Little Liars, Once Upon a Time, Revenge, Chicago PD, Carrie Diaries, Teen Wolf… Oh gosh. I can’t even think of all of them in one sitting. Not to mention all the old TV shows that aren’t on the air anymore.
22. PC or Mac?
23. What phone do you have?
I have an iPhone 4S. I’m not cool or rich enough to have the iPhone 5. Wah, wah.
24. How tall are you?
5’3-ish. I say “ish” because the last time I was measured I was 5’2… but I feel 5’3 on the inside. I just want to be taller!
25. Any pets?
Yes, I have an adorably, stupid cat named Barney who lives at my mom’s house. I say “stupid” with love because he’s just so silly! He’s also blind, which makes him even more precious. If you follow me on Instagram, you will notice I can’t resist a good Barney photo shoot!
