You've got questions, I've got answers!

Thanks to all who submitted questions for this post via Alex & Ani giveaway. Some were so great they inspired upcoming blog posts! (Thanks Chloe & Illissa!)

1.) If you could live in any city, where would you live? Thousand Oaks, California. I love Santa Clarita, but I look forward to a financial and career opportunity to move back to T.O. Maybe, in a year or two.

2.) What is your favorite city to visit? Sunriver, Oregon

3.) Why do you go back and forth moving so much? Since I started this blog I've gone through major life changes. I moved once when I graduated college, from the dorms back in with my parents. Then I moved from my parents to my brothers. Recently I switched rooms at my brothers. I go back and forth between here and my hometown just about every weekend. My job is in Santa Clarita, but my friends and boyfriend are in Thousand Oaks.

4.) What is your favorite/most meaningful Alex & Ani bracelet? My St. Anthony bracelet. It was the first one I ever received, from my good friend Kasie.

5.) How many Alex & Ani's do you have? 8. Yes it's a lot, but most were gifts. I believe 6 were gifts.

6.) What is your inspiration for your posts? During the month I write down all the blog ideas I have and companies I want to work with in the upcoming month. At the end of the month, I create a calendar for the upcoming month with posts. It NEVER sticks to the calendar, because things and new ideas pop up, but I just write down ideas all month long. I probably have 3 months worth of posts scratched throughout journals in my desk.

7.) What is your advice for someone starting a blog? Make sure you're doing it for the right reasons. It took me 8 months to realize this could become a career. I started it because I love to write and want my voice heard. It's continued to be a passion of mine because of why I started it. A lot of times I get stuck in slumps, maybe once or twice a month, but I just go back and read my old posts and realize why I started. Another piece of advice is to not get discouraged if you do want this to be a career. Some days I get thousands of hits, others I get barely any. But if you're doing it because you love it, the numbers mean nothing.

8.) What is your must have makeup item? Clinique Acne Solutions Foundation

9.) How do you deal with your anxiety? Prayer, meditation, breathing techniques, therapy, supportive family and boyfriend and friends to lean on...but mainly acceptance. It's taken me 10 years to accept these feelings, but now that I've realized this is part of my life and I've gotten through past anxious spells, I just push through it.

10.) What are your future goals? Get my 2nd Bachelors, get married, start a family, open a daycare, continue to blog, the list goes on....

11.) Who inspires your style? My Pinterest board, Carlie Butler, Lindsay Albanese, and Kandee Johnson

12.) What is your favorite ride at Disneyland and why? Big Thunder Mountain Railroas...I have fond memories from 8th grade promotion trip on that ride.

13.) If you could go to any country, where would it be and why? Canada! I don't want to travel far...I'm more into short trips. I've heard it's beautiful and so fun!

14.) If you could have dinner with any celebrity, who would it be, and why? Kandee Johnson! I've met her before and she is a HUGE inspiration to me.

15.) What is your favorite Thanksgiving tradition and why? We don't really have any, but I love to binge eat mashed potatoes.

16.) What is your favorite thing to do each season? Fall- pumpkin patch; Winter- ice skating; Spring- baseball games; Summer- beach trips!
