17 Little Tidbits

Since it's the 17th of January I figured why not share 17 little tidbits about myself. Here it goes:

1. I love coffee. Starbucks, Dunkin' Donuts, Lulu's (this AMAZING coffee shop in Santa Cruz, CA), and any other coffee place. Caffeine makes me happy. 

2.  I love watching TV and movies. I love the plots, the music, and most of all the acting. I like seeing how an actor or actress develops their character. Growing up I always wanted to be an actress. Sometimes I still do.

3. If I have the option to watch something with subtitles, I will. I don't know why, but I've always found them fascinating. I would put them on while growing up and it helped teach me how to read and I've just never kicked the habit.

4. My favorite color is blue.

5. I'm a Pisces. And I very much embody a lot of the characteristics of that sign.

6. I've never been in love. I've loved people but I've never been truly head over heels in love and I'm okay with that. 

7. Hoodies are my favorite piece of clothing. I own over 30. Any color, any fabric, any brand. There's something about them that make me feel safe and warm.

8. The past couple of years I've started to really get into makeup and beauty and fashion.

9. My all time favorite show has to be Charmed. My mom got hooked on the second season when I was a kid so I grew up watching it. I cried when it ended.

10. I love candles. I have a large collection. More than I will ever need and I continue to buy more.

11. I want to travel the world. I want to go to London and Paris and the Gold Coast.

12. I love taking pictures. Photography is a big hobby of mine.

13. I was on my high school swim team for 2 years. I've stopped swimming now but I really want to get into it again.

14. I love flying. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that I'm going on an adventure normally but looking out the window and seeing everything below is breathtaking to me.

15. I can't sleep without noise. Whether it's the sound of my heater or my fan in the summer, I have to have it. Unless I'm extremely exhausted I have a hard time falling asleep without it.

16. I'm a night owl. I am always staying up super late. I feel more creative at night too. Most likely a lot of my posts will get done at night.

17. I love music. Going to concerts is one of the most exhilarating feelings in the world.

New Year, New Me

So... I've tried blogging before. The writing kind. I have a bit of tendency to not be consistent with updates but like the title of this blog post says, "New Year, New Me." I really want to stick with this. I'm hoping that this blog will serve as an outlet for everything I want to say and maybe am scared of saying to the people around me. My hopes, my dreams, my fears. Or perhaps it will just allow me to get all the random stuff out of my brain.

So be prepared to read about the random things that happen on a day to day basis in my life, my favorite television shows and movies, reviews of my favorite beauty products and my subscription boxes (currently I subscribe to Glossybox and Julep). I'm sure it will be a nice hodgepodge of things.

All I know is, it'll be an adventure.
