24 Things About Me

IT’S HERE! IT’S HERE! MY BIRTHDAY IS HERE! In the year between turning 23 to 24 I have learned so much about myself and the person I am becoming and, about life and how I am living it that I decided to do another post of 24 things about me. I have compiled a list of favorites, facts, and things I have learned over the year. Before you dive in, I just want to say sorry for having this post so wordy and long but, I just wanted to take the time and truly share with you.

1. Fact. I am a barista for a local coffee shop in my area and through my job I have become a coffee snob. πŸ™ˆDue to experimenting a lot on the job I know how different drinks should taste and what it takes to make them. I now have no problem asking for my drink to be remade when it tastes bad {especially at Starbucks} not because their coffee is bad but because machines make all their coffee so it isn’t a hassle to have them remake the drink. We {baristas} can make it look hard to make different drinks but it really is easy to do.

2. Fact. When I get swept up into a really good book series…you will probably have to wait until I’ve finished the entire series to get my full attention back πŸ™ˆ I know! I know! Bad of me, right? I am currently reading The Selection series by Kiera Cass and I am in loveeee! 😍I won’t go on about it now but stay on the look out for a couple Whimsicals in the next couple months!

3. Favorite. My favorite foundation is actually a powder foundation by Purr, you can find it at Ulta. I find that it stays on the best through the entire day and is easily touched up when needed. I switched to this brand when the bare minerals powder foundation I had been using was being discontinued. I would recommend giving this foundation a try if you have a hard time keeping liquid foundation on even when you use primer.  I love this foundation so much I went and bought a second one to carry in my purse for touch ups!

4. Fact. I am on the hunt for a great liquid eye liner, preferable a drug store find. I have used the Stila liquid eyeliner called 'Stay All Day' for YEARS but, have never loved that it seems to come off the moment I walk out the door.

5. Favorite. My favorite {milk based} coffee drink is a iced vanilla latte πŸ˜‹ I always order extra vanilla fyi! It just makes the vanilla stand out that much more!

6. Fact. I love cleaning…. like a lot. I  love watching cleaning videos on Youtube, I get some of the best tips from Clean My Space! I am a bit of a clean freak and like things to always be neat and tidy πŸ˜… my poor honey, I am very lucky that he was raised with a mother who is worse than I am.

7. Fact. I love color themes throughout the rooms in the house and my car. πŸ™ˆ Let me explain this one. I love the look when you can walk into a house and see a color theme throughout. I love when it all matches…. including my car. I feel like when there are a bunch of random colors all over then it just looks messy to my eye.

8. Favorite. My favorite lips stick isn’t one of the Urban Decay ones I just got 😱 SHOCKER! It’s actually a matte lip stick I picked up one day while at Target. It’s called Lust for Blush #665 by Maybelline and it’s the perfect natural pink that I have in my collection. It goes on so easily and is so easy to touch up it’s my favorite for work.

9. Favorite. My current go to shirts are these ever so comfortable ones I got randomly when I was walking through JC Penny’s. They are by the brand Stylus and they are the perfect short sleeved scoop neck that you will find.

10. Fact. I go on Pinterest and search for house decor or, office decor and can sit there for hours with coffee and lemon water happily pinning. It’s one of my guilty pleasures that I can waste an entire day doing. Ya’ll I’m addicted!

11. Fact. When I am at home, I take my coffee black…. with a layer of sugar on the bottom. πŸ™ˆ Don’t judge! I used to have to drink coffee with a layer of creamer on the bottom so this is a step up. I’m working on it πŸ˜‚

12. Favorite. I have been using this quick blow drying spray for my hair for about two months now and I absolutely love it! If you would be interested in seeing a review about it, snapchat me with requests! I’m @nicolenikkim πŸ‘»

13. Fact. If you read my post a year ago, part of the 23 facts was that I had this huge phone case collection. Once I got a new phone tho… they all had to go bye bye πŸ˜₯I now only have two phone cases and have no plans in getting more. I have a massive Otter box to protect my phone from me, and a very slim cat case that I put on when I need a slimmer case. I usually keep my Otter box on because I heard rumors the SE is very brittle… and there is no way I want anything to happen to this phone.

14. Fact. I don't drink enough water. This has been something that I have had to learn myself over the past year.... it is extremely important to drink water! No way! But really, I feel a big difference in myself when I drink water constantly compared to when I don't.

15. Favorite. My favorite {water based} coffee drink is an Americano with one pump vanilla, three pumps caramel, and one pump hazelnut {DO NOT LET SOMEONE SAY TRY TOFFEE NUT} and don’t forget a splash of cream! It took me so long to get the right amounts of each flavor to make your taste buds fall in love and I can guarantee that you will love this drink!

16. Fact. I have way too many clothes. Some in my closet still have tags on them and I can honestly say that I don't see myself wearing them in the future.... not just yet. I have the hardest time sorting out my closet but I know I need to give them to a good home.

17. Favorite. I am quickly becoming obsessed with snapchat πŸ‘»πŸ™ˆ For the longest time I avoided it because I didn’t see the point… If there are any of you out there thinking the same thing, hold! The point is to send funny/ silly pictures to people that you may not want being posted for all to see….. like the most ugly faces you only send your bestie. The themes change daily and change you from a maid to a puppy dog in a matter of swipes. I you want to just have a laugh and a quick way to have a video brought to you, then I would suggest getting a snapchat.

18. Fact. I need an alarm clock. Any suggestions tweet me!I have always used my phone and for some reason my body has completely stopped waking up to my phone alarms... which has lead me to wake up in a panic a time or two.

19. Fact. When I have a lot on my mind and, I mean a lot. I will make a timed list of when thing need to be done including when to wake up, get ready, and driving periods. I become overly type A when I am stressed.

20. Favorite. My favorite book series is Harry Potter. To this day I can still read or, listen to the audio books of any Harry Potter book and not be bored. I can do it every day all day.

21. Fact. No matter what happens in life, be it an argument or a serious thing - family will always have your back. They may not all be blood, some may be those you have grown close to over the years. They will though, always have your back and best interest. Don't get caught up in your life to the point where you push them away. You'll regret it. I am most thankful for my family.

22. Fact. As hard as I try to become a morning person, I still find that I get the most done at night. I have been trying to fight this fact for a very long time. Recently though I came to the conclusion - why not just get less sleep in a day and be a night/ morning person. Yup! True thought. πŸ™ˆ

23. Fact. As you can tell from the post, I use a lot of emojis. What you can't tell is that for the longest time I could not pronounce emoji. I have no clue why but it was just a mess if I tried. Go ahead and laugh, I sure did!

24. Fact. Thinking up actual facts about me is really really hard. Next year I think I’ll just answer a bunch of questions because that is way easier than coming up with things #struggle.

That's it for todays post. Products mentioned above are linked below if I could find them, they are linked to the corresponding number. I hope you enjoyed this little post as a get to know me between the ages. Have a wonderful Sunday!
