Q & A: Friday Introductions


Happy Friday! I'm keeping it light today and answering a few questions in hopes that you could get to know me better. Friday introductions are oh so popular on Instagram right now so I thought I'd take it up a notch and answer a few questions on my blog today. Enjoy!


How long have you been blogging?
Four and a half months so far and totally loving it!

What is your favorite part of blogging?
Being able to connect and interact with like minded individuals. 

What inspires you to blog?
The ability to share about what I am passionate and inspired by with other individuals who are equally inspired by the same thing as myself.

Favorite movie?
I love romantic comedies and anything Disney. Movies with heart warming and romantic story lines.

One word you use all the time?
pretty! cute. ohmygosh. 

Where are you from?
Southern California, born and raised.

How old are you?

What do you like to do in your spare time?
Spare time? What is that...right? In all seriousness, when I do have free time I enjoy relaxing at the beach and reading a good book while my husband surfs in the distance.

What's on repeat in your closet?
Currently, a pair of sunglasses I picked up at Nordstrom. I wear them ALL the time. I even stopped by to get a second pair just in case something happens to my current ones. I don't know if this happens to anyone else but somehow I always manage to lose my sunglasses so having a spare of my favorite sunglasses is key.

Favorite food?
Healthy- Kale. I use it in smoothies and like to add it to soups or salads for dinner. 
Unhealthy- Potatoes. French fries, hash browns, potato chips. I always have to practice self control around potatoes. Lol!

Celebrity Inspiration?
Blake Lively, I love the way she holds herself, she's very elegant but also witty, funny and down to earth.

Middle name?
Liset. Lisset. 26 years later and I still haven't figured out how to spell it!

Favorite drink?
Water and kombucha. How exciting right?

Last thing you bought?
I just customized some Nikes online to workout in and they are so cute. I always find that having cute workout clothes and shoes totally motivates me to workout. I also customized the tounge top ID to read 'Love Kale'. Can't wait to show you!

Favorite color?
Let's see. White, pink, and sparkles. Sparkles is a color, right?

Do you have any pets?
A mini greyhound, an older lab mix and a cat who is feisty like no other but I promise they're all friendly and so so adorable.

Favorite perfume?
Chloé. It smells so yummy! The top notes are pink peony, freesia, and lychee. Midnotes include magnolia flower, lily of the valley, and rose. I love it.

Are you married?
Yes! I've been married for three and a half years and it's so much fun! We are complete opposites and at the same time have everything in common. I love how we balance each other out.

Do you speak any other language?
Spanish. But I'm losing it because my husband's spanish is pretty bad. Shh! Don't tell him I said that.

What is your favorite shop?
Anthropology, Kate Spade, Target, and Nordstrom.

Favorite restaurant?
Healthy- Lemonade. I could seriously eat there everyday.
Unhealthy- In-n-Out. So yum! If you haven't tried it yet, you're missing out.

When was the last time you cried?
Watching The Best of Me on Netflix with my husband. *Spoiler alert* When Dawson was killed by his father, I started sobbing. Later, his love interest Amanda, finds out her son found out the name of the person whose heart he was transplanted with and it turns out to be Dawson. It was so romantic and tragic at the same time. My husband turned to me and said, "You like watching this stuff?" I couldn't help but laugh while I was crying. Ha!

Favorite TV shows?
This is where you can tell my husband influenced me. I'm currently hooked on Arrow, The Flash and Big Bang Theory. Once Upon A Time and New Girl also make the top of my list.

How tall are you?
I'm 5'4. My husband is 6'3 and even when I wear heels, I only reach his shoulders. I'm doomed to feel short for the rest of my life.


So enough about me, I'd love to know more about you! Feel free to answer these questions on your own blog and let me know or leave the answers down below. I'd love to read all about your likes, dislikes, favorites and not so favorites! 

I hope you have a lovely weekend!
