Reminiscing the days when I was spoiled with food like this. Remember this, @rachaelsheridan? Haha! #pancakes #breakfast #strawberries
Thanks @glambunctious for tagging me! Here we go…
1) I am the first American-born of my 4 siblings. 
2) When I was a kid I used to eat Hot Cheetos rolled in a slice of bread like a taco. 
3) I can’t stand coconut flakes. The texture and flavor are unpleasant to me. 
4) I’m left-handed and in the Creative field. Go figure. 😛
5) I scrunch up my upper lip to my nose like my mom used to do.
6) The farthest East I’ve been in the States is Chicago, IL. I have travelled to Taiwan, Mexico, China and South Korea.
7) I can look at office supplies all day. I used to collect stationery when I was a kid. Wait, I still do. 
8) I was in a beginner’s bowling league. My highest score was 210. 
9) I sing fluent Spanish, Chinese and Korean.
10) Mascara is my least favorite type of makeup product. 
11) I am banned from eating Hot Cheetos by my husband. See #2. 
12) My husband and I have been part of a classic Volkswagen car club since 2005. He owns a ‘62 & ‘73 beetles and an ‘03 Jetta TDI. I’d love to own a Notchback some day.
13) I didn’t get my driver’s license until I turned 22 (seven years ago). Never had the need or always found a ride somehow. 
14) I don’t drink or smoke. I’m not much of a potty mouth either.
15) I played volleyball and basketball in high school.
16) My husband and I dated for 10+ years before we married. Security and timing played a big part.
17) My favorite music is Old School R&B. People are often surprised how much I know. 
18) I grew up in the jewelry business but prefer to have a small collection. I’m very particular when it comes to that. 
19) I lurve chips and salsa. I can’t stop!
20) I truly enjoy the makeup application process and learning something new. Everyone has their preferences which makes it fun. 

I tag YOU! #20factstag
And the weekend begins… Here are my picks for today! Bought the Burt’s Bees lip crayon called Napa Vineyard—a beautiful, deep red from Target. 😍 Haven’t used my Sephora glitter liquid eyeliner in a while (it came in a Sephora Favorites set). 😀 #tartecosmetics #burtsbees #lauramercier #toofacedcosmetics #bareminerals #rainforestafterdark #motd #beautyjunkie #eyeshadow #foundation #browpowder #concealer #pressedpowder #eyeliner #lipcrayon #napavineyard
