Heya Fellow Gurus!
I was reading this same post from http://shadowdancerx.wordpress.com/2013/07/25/11-questions-tag/ and I decided that I would answer her questions. I love doing fun tags like these, so if anyone reading this does a lot of tags, make sure you tag me. I would love to do more! I will add my own 11 questions at the end and I am specifically tagging Danielle from http://daniellec1992.wordpress.com/ to answer my questions to keep the tag moving along. Now, onto the tag!
1. What is your favorite makeup brand?
Selena: I have a few favorites in my stash, but the one brand that I keep going back to is Maybelline New York for affordable, quality makeup and The Body Shop for higher end make up. I do want to try out Mac to see what all the fuss is about, but I have yet to buy anything from them. I’m not usually a high-end makeup buyer, unless I have coupons for Clinique or if there is a sale going on.
2. What is the best gift you received?
Selena: I would have to say that the best gifts I have received was a gorgeous cat for my 11th birthday and my lovely Chihuahua for Christmas in 2008. My cat was the cheapest gift for 20 US DOLLARS, but caring for animals are always expensive. My dog was 350 at a shelter, but she had all her shots and was fixed. They are my babies in my life right now and I love them dearly.
3. What book would you recommend I read next?
Selena: I don’t really know what kinds of books you read, so I will pick a Chick Lit book that I am really loving at the moment. I am reading Just Listen by Sarah Dessen and am loving it. Dessen creates such heartwarming stories out of tragedies. I love her writing and need to read every one of her books. I think I’ve read three or four so far.
4. What is your favorite shampoo and conditioner?
Selena: Since I am on the hunt for sulfate-free shampoo and conditioners, these might not be my favorites for long. As a complete shampoo and conditioner set, I really love TRESemme and Herbal Essence. As shampoo and conditions that can be from different brands, my go to shampoo and conditioner that I am using right now is Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Shampoo With Hawaiian Ginger and Wen by Chaz Dean in Sweet Almond Mint for a conditioner.
5. Describe your favorite outfit.
Selena: Well, my favorite outfit hanging in my closet right now for the summer is a cute summer dress from Kmart from the Selena Gomez Dream Out Loud Line. It is color blocked with a grey tee-shirt and turning into a wonderful, colorful flouncy skirt on the bottom with a flower pattern. If it’s a bit colder out, I’ll pair it with a white faux leather vest with punk studs and very fitted design. I love it, because it adds a bit of edge to the girly ensemble. The vest is from Forever21. I pair this off with an oversized pink chain necklace with pink beads and fake diamonds. For shoes, I’ll wear my white and black striped zebra sneakers with a 2 inch hidden heel with blue accents and pink laces. The shoes add major edge, but playfulness to my vibe. My personal style sense is Girly Punk or Girly Edge. I like creating my own fashion sense.
6. Do you have a lot of shoes? How many shoes do you own?
Selena: Yes, I have a lot of shoes, but I feel like I need a few more pairs. I own 2 pairs of sneakers, 3 pairs of sandals, 1 pair of knockoff Uggs, 2 pairs of heels, and 4 pairs of boots. So, that is 12 pairs of shoes total. I might be missing a pair or two, but I think I might have spring cleaned them.
7. What are your favorite stores for shopping (for anything)?
Selena: Well, my favorite stores are Ocean State Job Lot for anything is counted in beauty that I know I’ll use up before the expiration date, Kmart for those necessary purchases, clothing, shoes, and makeup; Forever 21 for clothes, accessories, and the other little items they carry; The Body Shop for certain body products, Bath & Body Works for candles, Barnes & Nobles for books since I always have gift cards, Lush for soaps and cleansers, and finally, Victoria Secrets because who doesn’t like free underwear?
8. Do you have pets? If so tell me a little about them.
Selena: I live with four animals, but only own two. I have my British short-haired cat named Shadow, who is ten years old, but still acts like a kitten. I also own a dog named Serena from Gossip Girl and she is 5 years old. I bought her from a shelter, but she was originally from Puerto Rico. I rescued her at 7 months old. She’s such a cute little thing with big bulgy green eyes, but has horrid breath. I bought her with dental problems that we have been working on. I’ve been brushing her teeth for a year every day and now most of the plaque build up is gone, but there still seems like some just won’t ome off. She might need dental cleansing from the vet in a few years if it keeps up. Here are some pics to enjoy!
9. Do you prefer lipstick, lip gloss, lip stain, or lip balm?
Selena: I always have lip gloss on hand, but I really like lip balm for a treatment or to put on my lips before I go to bed. No need to worry about any color smudges, just pure moisture. I don’t really use lip stick or lip stains.
10. What is your favorite food?
Selena: My favorite food would be pancakes for breakfast, wraps for lunch, and spaghetti for dinner. Forgot dessert! Dessert would be a layered chocolate cake and for a snack corn chips with spicy salsa! YUM!
11. What do you like about wordpress?
Selena: WordPress is one of the easier blog sites to use and you can do all sorts of things on here that one cannot do on other sites. I like the option of pictures and spell check. I love adding photos and I am not the world’s greatest speller seeing that I learned English as a second language. Although, English is my first language now, because I rarely use the other in America. I sort of forgot most of it, besides the basics.
