6. I love to cook and bake
7. I have no food restrictions and am very open to new things. If it's edible I will eat it (or at least try it). However! I am very strict on processed foods. I try to eat clean and avoid anything processed with chemicals/preservatives/high fructose corn syrup etc.

Questions from Suzii:

1. What's your best memory?
I wouldn't say that I have one favorite or best memory, because every moment to me is a memory that will have an impact on my life. I am very blessed with majority good memories, and even the bad memories don't seem so bad when I think about my life as a whole. 

2. Do you prefer cold or hot weather?
Definitely cold weather. I prefer temperatures around 40-50 degrees Fahrenheit. That way I can whip out my boots and jackets and style them accordingly! 

3. Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging because I needed a creative outlet from my school/summer life. I am currently majoring in Chemistry and Biochemistry in college, so this is a good way for me to balance between my career passions along with my hobbies and recreational passions.

4. What's your favorite quote?
"It does not matter how slow you go, as long as you do not stop" - Confucius 

5. If you had a wish, what would you wish for?
More wishes. Yes, I am that kind of person. 

6. Do you like to read? Why?
Yes I do! I used to not enjoy reading as much as I do now, but now I really enjoy it. It's a nice way to go through someone else's experiences (with nonfiction). And also stories are just better than real life. 

7. Dresses or jeans?
Jeans. Not the biggest dress person, but I do like some of them. They also look great on others. For me, I like mixing and matching, and with dresses, they kind of give me less room to work with and to layer. Also I just think that my personal style leans more towards jeans and pants, shorts, etc.

8. Do you like Mexican food?
Yes! I love it! I crave it once in a while. I love the freshness of it.

9. Do you prefer to buy something or do it yourself?
I think it depends. If doing it myself really saves me a lot of money (and I'm talking at least less than half the cost as if I were to buy something) then I would do it myself. 

10. Bracelets or necklaces?
Bracelets probably, although the only jewelry I ever wear are earrings, 

11. What's your favorite flavor of ice cream?
Mint Chocolate Chip 

Questions from me!:
1. What's your favorite food?
2. If you could have one super power, what would it be?
3. Fall/Winter clothes or Summer/Spring clothes? 
4. What's your favorite movie?
5. Who/what is your favorite fictional character?
6. Where is your dream vacation?
7. Who inspires you the most? 
8. Are you a procrastinator or do you like to plan things out?
9. Dream career?
10. Favorite drink?
11. Gold or Silver? (As colors and as jewelry tones)

My nominations:

Sorry I cheated and couldn't nominate 11 people who I hadn't seen this from with less than 200 followers! I promise I will try to meet more people in the future!

Happy Friday!
