Five On Friday: Kate Spade Made Me Do It

Happy Friday Sweet Friends!

The namesake of this Five On Friday - "Kate Spade Made Me Do It" is the name of my newest Pinterest board. I have always loved the Kate Spade style and I thought that there was no better way to gain inspiration than to make a Pinterest board all about it! You can view this Kate Spade inspired board here, and my entire Pinterest account here.

This Friday I thought I'd share with y'all 5 of the photos that I have compiled on my board so far that I absolutely adore! They are all so chic, simple, elegant, glam, fab, the good adjectives go on and on.

Now this is a party I'd love to attend! Sequined tablecloth? Sign me up!

This is some really beautiful organization. I like the look of the colored and printed storage boxes - a look I may copy for my dorm! Also the mirrored frames are to die for!

The look of this desk is really inspiring my desk in my dorm room that I'm currently planning. I love how the wall behind the desk is a bit of a beautiful mess but the work area is neat & tidy. I just ordered a tassel garland similar to the one in this photo and I can't wait to see how it turns out, I'm sure it will look perfect above my desk!

Love the look of the black and white stripe tablecloth and how it pairs with the gold accents and floral arrangements. It's chic and clean yet also very feminine.

The golden framed mirror as well as the pained drawers and knobs are amazing! These little details really make an impact on the look of this entire room.

Have a great weekend! Maybe Kate Spade will inspire you to do something fab!

Breathing Easy {Literally}

This is going to be a rather strange post, I know that, but I felt that I should share anyways!

Over the past few months I have been suffering from the worst allergies of my entire life. I think that I possibly sneeze 500 times a day. For a long time I couldn't pinpoint what was causing it until I spent three days at my friend's house that is insanely clean. I realized in the middle of my stay that I had not sneezed once. My home is also very clean, and my mom does a great job with it but I knew that something had to be in the air {literally}. So I researched it on the internet and decided that an air purifier/ionzier was the way to go. I purchased a rather cheap one from Walmart online just because I was very unsure about the whole thing.

             Air Purifier Review

I am completely blown away. I can actually feel that the air is cleaner. I feel like I can take deeper breaths and I swear that I have been sleeping better at night too. But the biggest bonus of all is that I hardly ever sneeze anymore. I am glad to report also that it is small enough that it will be coming to college with me. I am saying "you're welcome" in advance to my future roomie for providing her with cleaner air.

If any of you are interested in the air purifier I purchased, you can find it here. This one is very small and only purifies a small area {I keep it on my bedside table, but move it to different places in my room from time to time} but I think it does the job well! Another added bonus is that is has two functions - "turbo" for when you really need to get something yucky out of the air, and "whisper" which you can barely hear and can be left on all of the time unnoticed.

I hope that none of you are suffering from the allergies that I was, but if you are be sure to try out this great product or one that is similar!

Things To Do In Palm Beach Part 3: Activities

I hope that y'all have been enjoying my posts about my favorite places to eat and shop in Palm Beach. If you missed the first two posts in this series, you can find the post about restaurants here and the post about shopping spots here.

Today I am continuing my series with the third and final part: activities and adventures that I love to go on and you will too!

Tour Flagler Mansion
The Flagler museum has something for everyone. Tons of history for all my history nerds out there, to-die-for decorating for any home decor obsessors, and the ultimate Palm Beach story for anyone who just adores the classic Palm Beach lifestyle. After your tour be sure to explore the giant tree next to the mansion, a favorite spot of mine, as well as the beautiful flowers and fountain behind the Royal Poinciana Church {where I swear I'll get married someday}. It is a lovely afternoon that is both enchanting and educational! Flager Mansion is on Palm Beach Island.

Walk Around Worth Avenue
While the majority of the items are out of budget, it is so much fun to just look around anyways! Island company, Sequin, Alex & Ani, and Roberta Roller Rabit are some of the spots that I actually buy things from at times. You'll have a great time just enjoying it all though and it is a key spot on Palm Beach. Be sure to walk down all of the vias {little side streets that are in between shops}. 

Visit Blowing Rocks Preserve
Blowing Rocks is in Jupiter is and so much fun! To get the full effect, go at high tide and it's even better on a windy day. If you combine the high tide with the rougher seas, the water literally shoots out of holes in the rocks like mini volcanoes! It is SO cool!

Climb the Jupiter Lighthouse
Also in Jupiter, climbing the lighthouse is a fun way to spend an afternoon or morning! You get a great view from the top and you learn some Florida history in addition.

Explore the Breakers Hotel
It is truly breathtaking to see the inside of the Breakers Hotel. The lobby is literally jaw dropping, and driving in the main entrance you'll honestly feel like you are in a movie. Either have dinner or drinks at one of their restaurants or explore their shops. I have never been to HMF in the breakers but I have heard that it is a unique and unbeatable spot to have cocktails! If you can stay at the Breakers while you're here, that's even better, and I'm jealous.

Visit Cityplace
Cityplace is a great place to go at night and I haven't seen anything like it in my travels around the US. After returning from Spain two summers ago I felt that it is similar to the plazas that many of the major towns have over there, if any of you are familiar with that. Cityplace is in West Palm Beach but is just over the bridge from Palm Beach island for those of you staying there. They have live entertainment on weekends, and also feature shopping, a movie theatre, and restaurants. A favorite of mine is when they have snow nights around the holidays so Floridians can have a fake "white Christmas."

Walk, Bike, or Run on the Lake Trail
The Lake Trail runs along the west side of Palm Beach Island and is extremely beautiful. I have gone on countless bike rides along the trail but walking or running would be lots of fun too! You get a great look at some beautiful homes in a way that you cannot see from the street. As an added plus, you also get a great view of the West Palm Beach waterfront which is rather picturesque.

Overall, I hope that whether you are a local or you are visiting you grow to love my hometown as much as I do! There are so many unique things to do that I don't think I even covered it all here! Happy travels and feel free to ask me any questions you may have, I would love to hear form you!

Things To Do In Palm Beach Part 2: Shopping

Today I am continuing my series about my favorite spots in Palm Beach! If you missed the first post about restaurants be sure to go check it out here!

Also a very important part of any trip to Florida - the shopping! 

C. Orrico and Lilly Pulitzer
These are classics for the "Palm Beach Style" that so many people love. C.Orrico is a locally-started boutique and the stores closest to this area are in Cityplace and on Palm Beach Island. The store in Cityplace has more of the sale items, while the store on Palm Beach carries a bit of everything! If you want to stop by a Lilly Pulitzer store, the shop at the Gardens Mall is unbeatable. I highly suggest making a little trip because the Gardens Mall is a beautiful mall, I feel so spoiled to live 15 minutes away from it!

This brand has more recently begun selling some of their items at Nordstrom, but their Nordstrom line doesn't begin to compare to their stores. There are two shops on Palm Beach, one on Worth Avenue which tends to have more high end items and one on South County Road next to C.Orrico which tends to have more "beachy" items. If you walk into the Worth Ave store you'll nearly die of a heart attack caused by joy when you see their amazing selection of bangles!

Groovy Palm Beach Vintage
This place is SO MUCH FUN. I really don't go there enough. The owner, EJ, is hilarious and will potentially be the highlight of any trip. He hand-selects unique vintage items and his store is stuffed with amazing finds. His section of vintage Pucci items is truly unbeatable, and rumor has it that the Lilly Pulitzer design team buys vintage Lilly from him as inspiration for their new lines. The store is located on Palm Beach Island. I suggest calling before you go, because the posted hours are not always accurate.

West Palm Beach Green Market
This is a bit more of an activity, but it can count as shopping too - ha! This green market has a wonderful selection of yummy foods and wonderful, unique items available for purchase. The West Palm Beach Green Market is on Saturday afternoons. If you can't go on Saturday, the Palm Beach Gardens Green Market is much smaller and on Sundays but is tons of fun too. Be sure to check online before going though, as the Green Markets are only open during tourist season (November-March typically).

Palm Beach Sandals
I won't rant... I promise, but it's so hard not to. Jack Rogers sandals are so overrated! Palm Beach Sandals is the way to go! They break in way faster than Jack Rogers and last far longer. They are handmade and 100% leather, two things that Jack Rogers cannot boast. I promise that once you go for Palm Beach Sandals, you'll never go for Jacks again.

City Girl Consignment
The mother of one of my closest friends opened this shop a few years ago and it has really taken off! If you are looking for somewhere to find "Palm Beach" style looks for a more manageable price, this is definitely the place to go! She has a whole front room full of designers like Tory Burch and J. McLaughlin and even an entire section devoted just to Lilly! City Girl is located in West Palm Beach.

Once again I hope that y'all enjoy all of these fun spots to shop!

Things To Do In Palm Beach Part 1: Restaurants

Hello and I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend. I will be doing a three-part series on places to go and things to do in my hometown, Palm Beach. I have received so many emails and comments from all of you asking me to divulge my favorite without further adieu, here it is!

Please take note that these suggestions are not all on Palm Beach island but most are within at least a 30 minute drive so that it would be easy to get there if you were staying in the area. I have lived here for my entire life (18 years) and my parents have for 25 years so we definitely love and know this area very well. Also, my girlfriends and I love going out to eat so I try far too many restaurants. If you have yet to figure out that I'm a total shopaholic, let me assure you that my shopping suggestions will not disappoint either! 

Today I will start with one of the most important part of a vacation: the food!

If you're looking for a great view: 
Jetty's in Jupiter or E.R. Bradley's in West Palm Beach
Also I must suggest two other options in Jupiter: Guanabanas and U-Tiki-Beach. Jetty's is by far the best of the three, but there are some big differences that may impact which you choose to try (depending on what you are looking for). Guanabanas has decent food but the atmosphere is unbeatable. You literally feel like you're in a rainforest or in the Caribbean somewhere. Definitely avoid this place if rain is in the forecast, though, as there is limited seating under cover. U-Tiki-Beach has the same owners as Jetty's but the food is far more affordable and it has the same view because it is right next door. I actually have been at U-Tiki the past week training new hostesses (because I work at another restaurant owned by the same company} and I have really enjoyed trying all their yummy food! Go for Jetty's if you are looking for a nice dinner, go for U-Tiki-Beach or Guanabanas if you're looking for something more casual.

If you're going for brunch:
Nick and Johnnie's and Testa's on Palm Beach
They are right next door to each other and both are yummy for a brunch! When deciding I would suggest to just peek at both menus online to see what fits your taste best, because both are excellent. If you are looking for a more classic breakfast for a more decent price, Nick's 50s Diner in West Palm Beach is delicious and so is Blue Moon Diner in Jupiter.

If you want the "Palm Beach" ambiance:
Ta-boo, Palm Beach Grille, and Leopard Lounge on Palm Beach 
My biggest tip with all three of these is that reservations are a must. Make your reservations in advance, too! As soon as you know that you're coming to the area, call and try to book something so you don't have to worry about calling and trying to get in while you're here. Ta-boo and Leopard Lounge usually have pretty good availability and reservations can be made a few days ahead, but Palm Beach Grille is always so booked especially if you don't want to eat really early or really late. Without a doubt Ta-boo is my all time favorite restaurant. The ambiance, the food, the service, I could go on forever about this place. If you only listen to one thing I mention in this list, listen to this! It is pricey but well worth the money for the experience. Palm Beach Grille has very delicious food, and their Jumbo Lump Crab Cake salad that comes with avocado and grapefruit is possibly my favorite dish of all-time. Going to the Leopard Lounge at the Chesterfield Hotel for tea is a must. I had my 16th birthday tea party there and it was wonderful, I highly recommend spending an afternoon at this gem!

If you want an unforgettable meal:
Food Shack and Leftovers in Jupiter
I really cannot begin to emphasize how amazing the food is at these restaurants. They have the same owners and it is obvious in their unique dishes! I can't begin to explain it - just go. Look at the menu online and you will be completely blown away by the creativity and variety in their dishes.

If you want to grab some dessert:
Sprinkles Ice Cream on Palm Beach and Gelato Grotto in Palm Beach Gardens
Sprinkles is such a fun little place with so much character. It's the perfect place to stop after a day spent exploring the island or laying on the beach! Gelato Grotto is great because you get the low-cal bonus of gelato, plus it's super yummy! They make all of their gelatos in-house and it is a great place to go after dinner if you want a light treat after a heavy meal.

I hope that y'all have enjoyed learning about my favorite places to eat, and most of all I hope that it helps any of you planning to visit this area soon. There are so many amazing restaurants around here (over 100 on PGA Blvd, where I live, alone!) so it can be super difficult to choose, but I am confident that I've narrowed it down to a good selection.

If you have any questions or if you want to suggest somewhere I should try out, please don't hesitate to leave a comment, I love hearing what y'all have to say!

The Dorm Decor Has Begun...

While I'm still making my final college decisions, I have not wasted any time when it comes to picking out the perfect trimmings for my soon-to-be dorm room! I have my bedding almost complete, so I thought I'd share with y'all what goodies I have heading to college with me for my new bed!

The theme of my whole room will be gold & light pink with a few touches of lime green. I'm going for Kate Spade meets Lilly Pulitzer meets about 1,000 other fab things that inspire me. The sleeping/bed side of the dorm will reflect more of the Lilly & preppy while the desk area will be more Kate Spade & chic.

I purchased the Lilly Pulitzer First Impression bedding from Garnet Hill two years ago {yes, I know how insane that is} so that will be the basis for the rest of that side of my room.

             Preppy Dorm Bedding

On my Dorm Decor Pinterest Board I have been compiling ideas for over a year, and I finally decided on some accent pillows:

1. Hattan Home: Coral Lattice Pillow

3. It's Not Business Shop via Etsy: Gold Monogram Pillow

4. Lilly Pulitzer for Garnet Hill: Monogram Lumbar Pillow 
  {As you can see below it has just been sitting on the chair in my room, entirely mismatched}

5. I will be making this DIY Bow Pillow from Kate Spade via The College Prepster 
    {The one I am making will be light pink and white stripes}

Hope y'all are obsessing over all of this cute stuff as much as I am!
Are any of y'all planning dorms or bedroom makeovers? I'd love to hear what you're planning or getting inspiration from!

Closet Tour & Organization

I have gotten SO many requests to post photos of my bedroom and closet for y'all to see! Today I'll be showing you my closet, but posts about my bedroom and bathroom are coming soon as well. My closet has so much stuff in it, mostly because I'm the only person in my family who crafts so I have to keep all my craft supplies in there too!

I organize my coats, shirts, pants, and skirts on the left. All are color coded from darkest on the left to lightest on the right. Also, within each color, I organize from heaviest clothing on the left to lightest clothing on the right. So for example on the far left is my black clothing. From left to right I have my 3 different coats, then my puffer vest, then all my long sleeve black tops, my short sleeve black tops, then my sleeveless & strapless black tops. I like this system because it makes it easy to find something to match and also because it is organized by how heavy the garmet is, it's super easy to dress according to temperature. 

On the rack below my shirts is my skirts and pants. My skirts are separated into Lilly skirts on the right, and non-Lilly skirts on the left. Within these two sections I organize by color in the same way I do with the shirts: darkest colors on the left to the lightest colors on the right. My pants aren't separated out in any way, they are just ordered by color in the same way I do everything else.

Next is my sweaters. This is a relatively new area of my closet (I'm a Florida girl going farther North for college, so the sweater collection began not too long ago). I fold all of my sweaters, cardigans, and sweatshirts. I keep my pullovers and 1/4 zips in a separate pile that you can't see in any of these photos. I just organize the sweaters in color order as you can see in the photo!

Also, I keep all my shorts folded on the shelf too. I organize them from lightest color to darkest color as you move from top to bottom.

Next is my shoes, and it really has become quite the collection. I keep all my tall boots on top of my shoe organizer and I just keep my cowgirl boots on the ground next to it since they don't fit on top. Toward the top of the cubbies I keep the shoes I wear most - my Bonanno/Jack Rogers sandals. Then I put my nicer flats like my Tory Burch Revas and my loafers on the next row. Below that I put my Sperry's that I wear to school. Then on the bottom rows I store all of my heels and wedges. If I can stack a pair one on top of the other and fit them in one cubby I try to do that to save space, but sometimes I have to use one cubby per shoe. The cubbies are pretty large and even my tortoise shell heels that are about 5'' fit fine. The only shoes that don't fit are my ridiculously tall Michael Kors wedges, as you can see by them sticking out at the bottom.

Next to my shoe rack I keep my scarves on a metal ring. I need a better way to organize my scarves because you can't see them all or access them easily as they are here, so I am hoping to find a solution for that in the future!

Also, if you can see toward the middle of the photo, I keep my dresses organized as well. The Lilly dresses are toward the front, and the non-Lilly dresses are in the back. I organize with lightest color closest to the outside, and darker colors more toward the back. I also organized by garmet weight within each color: going from strapless, to sleeveless, to short sleeve, to long sleeve, then maxi dresses as you move farther back on the rack.

Also, I don't keep clothes that I wouldn't "wear out" in my closet. So things like tshirts, leggings, sweats, norts, and all of that fun stuff goes in my dresser which is not pictured! I also do not keep my handbags in my closet, as they are stored elsewhere in my bedroom.

I hope that y'all have enjoyed a look into my closet and maybe got some organization tips for your own along the way. 

How do you organize your closet?

As always, feel free to leave me any questions or feedback!

A Little Anxiety And A Lot Of Thankful

This post was completely unplanned and spontaneous, but I felt that it was necessary. On Tuesday I was just really feeling overwhelmed. Lately, it has felt like none of my teachers are on my side anymore, and they almost seem to think I don't care about their class anymore. That couldn't be farther from the truth. I am very conscientious of my grades and I love to learn, so it hurt me that my teachers are acting in this way. On Tuesday I just completely lost control of my emotions. After one of my teachers accused me of not participating in class and said that I deserved a zero on an assignment (which I DID NOT deserve at all), I just completely lost it. I began crying hysterically in front of my teacher which was completely embarrassing, and I think I scared the teacher to death. They apologized and explained that they drop the lowest homework grade each semester, so that I should not worry. But I still felt so stressed and out of control.

I left and went toward my next class, still crying in the hallway. I was at my locker getting my things for my next class and that's when God gave me a huge blessing. For those of you that are reading and are unfamiliar with my high school, this may seem unbelievable and unusual. In the total of 1 minute that I was at my locker, 3 of my friends noticed my distress and rushed to my side to hug me, comfort me, and reassure me that it would all be okay. To top it all off, one of my teachers saw me crying and she also came to my side and gave me a hug and said that God has a plan for me, and she made me feel much better by informing me that I got a 100 on my test that I took the day before!

I just cannot stop thinking about how fortunate I am. I am surrounded by some of the most loving and supportive people I have ever met, and I think I take it for granted too often. It also worries me that next year up at college I'll be by myself, with no familiar faces. I'm sure I'll make friends fairly soon after getting there, but it will take some time to develop friendships like the ones I have here at home. I also can't imagine that my teachers and other faculty members will care about me the way mine do at my school now.

It's easy to take things for granted, especially if it's something that you're used to always having. I need to take time to be thankful for the amazing people God has put in my life, especially as I will be leaving them all so soon. I loved the way God opened my eyes this week after my rough day Tuesday, it has really caused me to appreciate the amazing people I spend time with at school every day.

Are there things that you take for granted that you need to stop and be thankful for? I encourage you to do so this weekend!

Happy Friday!

Sounds of Summer

If it wasn't obvious yet from all my posts recently, I am DYING for summertime. I don't know if it's just because I am a senior and so I am ready to be finished, or if I'm just craving some time at the beach. Either way, the sooner I can be in a bikini instead of my school uniform, the better.

I am known among my friends for having just about the most eclectic iPod you will ever come across. I'm not sure if it's wonderful or strange, but while on shuffle you'll experience quite the mix. One minute you'll be listening to the most ghetto rap song you've heard in a while, but the next song could be anything from Michael Buble, to Legally Blonde the musical, John Mayer, Ke$ha, or my most recent obsession... Lorde.

I've pulled together a playlist of my all-time favorite songs for the summer, and I thought I would share with y'all! The one on my actual iPod has so many other songs, but these are my 20 faves. These songs are quite the mix, some from summers in the past that bring back so many memories, others just make me want to run to the beach and get a tan. This will also double as my spring break playlist since I seem to be getting seriously ahead of myself this year {oops!}

I don't usually share much about my music interests because it is just simply so varied, so I hope that y'all enjoy this and don't find it strange! Also, this is probably my favorite graphic that I've ever made for a post, it took me forever but I am obsessed with it!

I hope y'all enjoy this playlist as much as I am going to, or that you discover a new song because of it! Do you have any favorite summer songs? I'd love to hear all about them!

Five on Friday: Spring Faves


In honor of this five on Friday, I thought I'd share with y'all my top 5 faves from Lilly Pulitzer's spring line that recently came out! I am totally in love with everything that this collection has to offer. The prints and embellished shifts remind me of the classic Lilly style that I grew up loving. It was so difficult to even choose a top five!

               Top 5 For Spring

What are your favorites from the spring collection?

25 Questions

The fab Alex over at Preppy Therapy asked me to join in on 25 Questions so y'all can get to know me a little better! She thought of some fun, random, and fancy questions for me to answer, so I hope that y'all enjoy!

1. Do you have any pets? 
I have a black cat named Masey, but to be totally honest no one seems to like her except for my mom {yes I know how awful that is!} I also have a fish named Ophelia, you can read more about how I first got her here. Ophelia is a total diva and I love her for it, and I am strongly considering taking her to college with me!

2. Name 3 things that are physically close to you. 
My monogrammed camelbak water bottle, my Lilly Pulitzer organizer, and my iPhone {so predictable, I know}. 

3. What's the weather like right now? 
Well I live in Florida... so in line with sterotypes it is humid, hot, and sunny. Today it actually has decided to rain like crazy though... there's so much rain in fact school may even be cancelled tomorrow!

4. Do you drive? If so, have you crashed?
I do drive and I have never gotten a ticket or been in an accident. Funny story though... I was actually voted as "worst driver" for senior superlatives as a joke by my classmates because I drive like such a grandma. My mom would probably beg to differ, she thinks I drive too much like my dad.

5. What time did you wake up this morning?
Y'all are gonna think I'm crazy... I woke up at 4:45am! Lately I've been super tired and not in the mood for homework at night, so I have been going to bed fairly early and getting up to do all my studying and work before school in the morning. With the help from a little cappuccino {compliments of my Keuirg} and setting like 5 alarms I actually manage to wake up that early. 

6. When was the last time you showered?
Last night. 

7. What was the last movie you saw?
To be totally honest, I don't remember! I have been so busy lately I haven't been watching much TV or movies. I've been watching Grey's Anatomy on Netflix though! Probably about two months ago I watched P.S. I Love You at my friend Haily's house...which was the last time I saw a movie {I think}.

8. What does your last text message say?
My last text was actually a photo! My friends and I all have a group message going and lately we have been sending embarrassing photos of each other. Wish I could include some here for y'all to see, but my friends would kill me for it!

9. What's your ringtone?
To be honest I don't even know. My phone is always on vibrate. 

10. Have you ever been to a different country?
Yes! I've been to Bahamas, Mexico, Spain, and Portugal. I'll be going on my senior trip to England, Ireland, and Scotland soon...which I cannot wait for!

11. Do you like sushi?
Duh! Sushi is my FAVE. I also love to eat completely raw fish, gross as it may sound. If my family goes out fishing and we catch something like yellow fin tuna which is super yummy as sushi, we will actually just slice off a piece and eat it raw straight out of the ocean. Let me tell's the best thing ever. 

12. Where do you buy your groceries?
Publix is the best place on this earth, I am convinced of it. I was actually sad when I first started looking at out of state colleges because I thought I would have to go somewhere other than Publix for groceries {which is totally not okay with me} but one of the colleges I am interested in actually has a Publix less than 5 minutes from campus, which is a big plus for me!

13. Have you ever taken medication to help you fall asleep faster?
Not really. I've taken NyQuil when sick to help me sleep with a cough, but that's it!

14. How many siblings do you have?
I'm the one and only!

15. Do you have a desktop computer or a laptop?
I have a MacBook Pro, which I LOVE!

16. How old will you be turning on your next birthday?
It feels weird to be already thinking about my next birthday since mine was last month...but I will be turning 19!

17. Do you wear contacts or glasses?
Neither, thank goodness! Though I do think it could be fun to pick out some cute frames if I had to wear glasses. 

18. Do you color your hair?
I have never done anything to my hair! More recently I have been looking into getting highlights, but I am still a little unsure. 

19. Tell something you are planning to do today. 
I am going to give an ab workout from Pinterest a try! I am pretty stuck in my ways when it comes to my workout routine, but I love to try something fun and new every once in a while!

 20. When was the last time you cried?
I truly can't remember. My life has been so full of blessings the past few months, I have hardly been noticing the struggles! There was one situation in particular about two weeks ago with some people accusing me of some things and being just downright rude to me, and typically I would have been very upset...but I honestly just saw it as silly! I'm starting to understand that if people are trying to hurt me, there must be something seriously wrong with them to begin with. 

21. What is your perfect pizza topping? 
I like just plain pizza or Hawaiian pizza. But I don't usually eat pizza, I actually can't remember the last time I had it. 

22. Which do you prefer - hamburgers or cheeseburgers?
Cheeseburgers for certain, I haven't had one in FOREVER!

23. Have you ever had an all-nighter?
Too many times to count! Sometimes I hear people say that as a student there's social life, school, and sleep, and you can only choose two. I guess I chose to give up sleep.

24. What is your eye color?

25. Can you taste the difference between Pepsi and Coke?
No I really can't. I don't drink that much soda, usually I'll have a Sparkling Ice, Ginger Ale, or Pellegrino if I'm craving something fizzy.

I tag anyone that wants to join in on the fun! Comment a link to your post below if you decide to do one!
