The 20 Questions Tag

So, I was tagged to answer these questions by Lorraine like forever and a half ago. We're talking years, people. Better later than never, eh? Well, I hope this tag is fun for you to read and lets you get to know me a little better. If any of these questions "speak" to you, leave your response in the comment section! I would love to see your answers! I hope you all have a great weekend :)

1. Thing you cannot leave the house without?
Car keys because there is nothing in walking distance of my home. Oh and my phone. We are basically joined at the hip, literally.

2. Favorite brand of makeup?
As much as I love the higher end makeup products in my life, most of the products I reach for EVERY SINGLE DAY are by e.l.f. They are high quality products at the most affordable prices out there. Yeah, they don't come in fancy packaging, but they get the job done and I will always love them. 

3. Favorite flower?

This question is a hard one one because flowers are kind of my "thing". I narrowed them down and it would have to be an (almost) tie between orchids and peonies. The peonies win by a hair. I imagine a peony could cheer me up no matter what.

4. Favorite clothing store?
Lately, the Nordstrom Rack has been hitting the nail on the head. That said, there's nothing like Pakistani clothes. I will always choose them over going to American shops. I love Gul Ahmed and Generation. They both have high quality materials, are always on trend, and are available online :)

5. Favorite perfume?

Hands down, the Betsey Johnson one that looks like a bottle of kajal (w/ the hot pink top). I know it's quite the teeny bopper choice for a favorite, but I have been through several bottles since high school and I love it even more now! 

6. Heels or flats?

On an everyday basis, always flats. Although, I like to wear heels sometimes and then I feel like a tree. One heel-wearing day gets the bug out of me for a few months lol.

7. Do you make good grades?

Well, I am not currently in school (graduated a few months ago), but when I was, yes, I made VERY good grades. I am a perfectionist when it comes to academics. Ain't nobody tryna be thousands of dollars in debt AND not do well in school, right? #gunner

8. Favorite colors?

I cannot answer this question. It depends on so many things. How can I put limitations on my color preferences? Never understood how anyone can be expected to answer this accurately lol.

9. Do you drink energy drinks?

Nope. Never have, never will. Nobody needs to drink those. Kids need to learn how to better manage their time and go take a nap. 

10. Do you drink juice?

Not really. 

11. Do you like swimming?

Swimming is one of those important skills that I am embarrassed to admit, I never learned. 

12. Do you eat fries with a fork?
Nah, do people actually do that? Unless you're the queen, put that fork down...

13. Favorite moisturizer?

bebe Zartplflege. I stocked up on this when I was in Germany. I got them from the shop, DM if anyone is interested. IT. IS. THE. BEST.

14. Do you want to get married later on in life?

Can this be the one place where we chill out about this question? K, thanks.

15. Do you get mad easily?

No, unless I am hangry. Hungry, therefore angry, therefore, hangry. 

16. Are you into ghost hunting?


17. Any phobias?

I used to have many, but I conquered every single one. I can't think of anything I am afraid of now other than the obvious things, like murderers.

18. Do you bite your nails?


19. Have you ever had a near death experience?

No, thank God. 

20. Do you drink coffee?

Yes, but for the taste and occasionally. I don't need coffee. Does the fact that I felt the need to make that clarification say anything? Hmm ;)

Well, that was kind of fun! Until next time, toodles!
