Tag I'm It: The Beautiful Blog Award

So, I suck at blogging. Well, no, let's not start out on that negative of a note... but I've been stuck because I have so many things I want to photograph but my house has the worst lighting and nothing is in order as I'm in the midst of relocating back to my college town. My new apartment at school has the most amazing lighting and a better setup, so I've been putting blogging off until I can post things that are as close to on par with my ideal standards. However, that's left me with a gaping hole in my posting calendar. /endrant

Thankfully, the wonderful Emily from Lynde Avenue has tagged me for another little Q&A tag -- hurrah! Thank you so much, you lovely lady xx

Let's get on with it, shall we?

Answering Emily's Questions
  1. What is your dream occupation? (Think about it. Dream. Occupation.)
    Ahh, this has been the theme of my summer. I have one year left at university which means that I must seek out the opportunity to pursue my dream career by this time next year (WHAT). I would love to work for a creative or PR agency, either working on advertising or branding and design. Anyone got some sweet hook ups?
  2. Favorite type of shoe?
    I love boots, but I probably wear flats and smoking loafers the most. I am in love with my pink/rose gold Sam Edelman Adena flats.
  3. Guilty pleasures?
    Oreos and binge-watching MTV reruns of The Hills.
  4. Describe your style in one word.
    Uhh.... Basics?
  5. What makes you smile?
    Witty comments
  6. What makes you keep pushing forward when you're tempted to quit?
    That in x amount of time it'll all be over and life will be so much better, and I will know that I finished whatever it is and conquered that task.
  7. Do you have a favorite quote?
    "Io non ho paura." It's not really a quote, but the title of an Italian film that I love, and words I want to live by. Directly translated, it's "I do not have fear." I just need to go for everything with all that I have and not be afraid of failing or falling.
  8. What is your middle name?
  9. If you could change your hair color permanently, what would it be?
    I actually quite like my hair color, so I would probably keep it this way...
  10. If you could choose a superpower, what would it be and what would you use it for?
    Teleportation. I would never have to worry about traffic, hallelujah!
  11. Favorite coffee drink?Iced Caramel Macchiato with Soy Milk from Starbucks

  5. I don't think I have ever heard anyway say before that they enjoyed their natural hair colour enough to not want to change it! I would definitely become a permenant redhead which sounds a little extreme but even after 4 years I'm not sick of it... just the cost of having to dye it all the time, haha.
