Confessions of a Blogger Tag! Did I Tag YOU?!

So i've totally neglected you all this weekend! Blame it on The Sims3 and Pretty Little Liars! I tragically lost my hard drive last week and had to replace it, (rest in peace). I spent almost a whole day installing, updating and re-installing my custom content for TS3. I had so many families and legacies that I have been playing for literally years, all gone. Sad, sad day.

On another note, I started watching Pretty Little Liars on Netflix. Don't judge! Really though, i'm only one like episode 8 so, don't ruin anything for me! I cant wait to watch more. It's become the highlight of all of my lunch breaks! I am seriously in love with Lucy Hale's character Aria (and her scandalous relationship!)

Now onto the good stuff! I was tagged in the "Confessions of a Blogger" tag by the lovely KimPants! She is super sweet! I found her through MakeupGeek and she has so many great makeup looks, so go check her blog out!

When did you start your blog?
-January 01, 2013

Have you had any online presence before? (Other blog, Youtube)
-I co-hosted a Sims3 modeling competition and blog for 5 seasons. *lamesauce*

Why did you start a blog?
-I used to write all the time and it was always a great way to focus my thoughts and help me manage my life and my head. When I met my sister-from-a-Cuban-mister (Marina) it really sparked a desire in me to share my personal stories along with my love for fashion and beauty while having to work with a budget.

When did you become serious about starting a blog?

-About November 2012. I would say about 6 months before that we had talked about starting up this blog, but nothing ever really started taking form until around November.

What was your first post?
-A sort of hello, and a warning to everyone that I know about the possibility of being blogged about! Ha, you can read it HERE.

What has been your biggest challenge about blogging?
-Keeping my ideas organized. I think of stuff at the worst possible time (trying to sleep, working, driving) and now i keep a tiny notebook in my purse to jot stuff down, keep track of favorites etc... I also will send Marina a text just so I can get some feedback and know i'll have a place to look back on ideas we've forgotten about.

Where do you see your blog in one year?
-I hope to be doing YouTube videos soon. I hope that in a year I am able to come out of my shell and bring you some makeup looks and Halloween looks. I'd love to do some giveaways and just continue to share my life with you!

What is the most rewarding thing to you about blogging?
-Almost the entire blogging community is so friendly and genuine. I have started following some truly talented people who have guided me and been supportive of my blog. It's so refreshing to meet and talk with people who have the same interests and struggles with their blog and its content. There are some spammers out there, but i just try and overlook them!

What is your lasting inspiration or motivation?
-By far, the person who really propelled me into this desire to start a blog, Marina. She is always a fashion and beauty inspiration to me and continues to spark my desire and creativity. Without her as my friend, my life would be a lot less colorful.
