Liebster Award!

Hey guys!
So today I really didn't have an idea of what I was going to post about, since I like to post on Sunday's because they're so lazy and wonderful, and then the lovely Becca from Being Becca nominated me for the Liebster Award! I have been nominated a couple of times but I have never gotten around to actually doing it, however this time it seemed like a lot of fun! So basically you write eleven facts about yourself, answer eleven questions from your nominator, come up with eleven questions of your own, and nominate four other people! 
So here we go!

Eleven Facts About Me:
1. I am an extremely shy person at first, but once you get to know me I tend to be a little crazy!
2. I absolutely love to read and write.
3. I hope to be a successful writer one day, but I also want to be an anthropologist, archaeologist, journalist, screenwriter, or maybe a criminal profiler...I really don't have it figured out at all!
4. I adore animals, and have three dogs and four cats of my own! They are seriously my life.
5. I love classic cars, and basically cars in general, which I get from my dad.
6. I have never lived in a neighborhood, and I hope to keep it that way! I love living on acreage and having the outdoors to explore around my house.
7. I want to travel to many places, Paris, Greece, and Scotland being the top three as of now!
8. I am turning 18 in less then a month now, and I have absolutely no idea which college I will be going to next year, or what I will be studying, and that scares me so much!
9. I am addicted to Jamba Juice and I go there so much that the employees know my name and order. I get the Orange-a-peel and oh my gosh my mouth is watering just thinking of it!
10. I am a home body and I really don't mind being alone.
11. I always have to have my water bottle with me and I freak out whenever I forget it somewhere!

Becca's Questions:
1. Why did you start blogging?
I felt like I had so much to say, and I really wanted a place where I could share my life, random thoughts, likes, dislikes, fashion ideas, outfits and the beauty products I use. I also love to write, so I feel like this little space on the internet is mine to do whatever I want with.
2. What is your current favorite item of clothing?
I got this green tribal print cardigan for Christmas and I absolutely love it(it is the sweater from my January favorites). It is perfect for days where I don't really want to make an effort, but still look nice, and it is nice and warm! However, for the spring I am so excited to wear my lilac-y grayish kimono cardigan!
 3. Favorite skincare brand?
This is a hard one because I have so many skincare favorites from so many different brands, but my favorite drugstore brand is Burt's Bees (they came out with a line for animals recently!) and my higher end favorite is First Aid Beauty.
4. What is your current occupation?
I am a student currently!
5. Disney or Harry Potter?
Ahhh I love both! However I have an obsession with Harry Potter so I'd have to choose that. I have read the books and watched the movies too many times to count... I also went to Harry Potter world at Universal Studios last year in Florida, and I just about died. That is my ultimate dream summer job!!
6. If you had to dye your hair a color other than natural colors such as blonde, red etc what would you choose?
This is surprisingly easy because I think it is so pretty when it is done right, and that is lilac! I don't know why I love it so much, but I think it is gorgeous. I have seen so many pictures of it on tumblr and I just love it. However, I will probably never have the courage to actually do it!
7. False eyelashes or extensions?
Hmm...probably extensions because I think long hair is so pretty.
8. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you be?
On a warm, white sand beach, laying out in the sun with a good book!
9. If you could only watch one program for the rest of your life, what would you choose?
Probably Reign! It is such a good show and I love history. And for some reason I have always been obsessed with Mary Queen of Scots so it has quickly become my favorite show. The characters' dresses are also SO gorgeous. 
10. One rule you live your life by?
I have several, but my dad has always told me "It ain't nothin' but a thing" so I try and think of that whenever I'm doing anything scary. Honestly, I love trying new things even if they terrify me. I get so nervous sometimes before trying things like zip-lining or a particularly scary roller-coaster, but I just tell myself it's just a small thing that will be over in a couple of minutes, so I might as well try it! It's something that doesn't allow me let myself down, because honestly if it weren't for my dad and his saying, I never would have ended up so ambitious to try new things!
11. Your favorite food?
Salsa and blue corn chips!

My questions:
1. Who is your biggest inspiration?
2. What is your favorite thing about blogging?
3. What is your dream job?
4. Favorite store?
5. What is your go-to look? 
6. If you could only use one make-up product, what would it be?
7. What is your favorite book?
8. Favorite type of food?
9. What is something that you are looking forward to in the next couple of months?
10. Biggest life lesson?
11. Favorite quote?
