Get To Know Me Tag

Usually with tags another person well tags you into it, but I thought what the heck I will just tag myself. I realized being that I'm still a fairly new blogger (sort of) I haven't posted much about myself, I haven't opened up I guess is what I'm trying to say. Starting up a blog can be intimidating and well I held back more of the personal stuff till I felt I was at a good standing. So here I am! I thought the Get To Know Me Tag is a perfect way to start opening some of those doors!  

1. Are you named after someone?
Yes, I am named after my mom. To keep this short and sweet, my mom let my dad choose the name of their first baby (me) and well my dad is and always has been head over heels for my mom. What he did was write names on pieces of paper, put them in a baggie, shook them up, and had my mom draw out a name at the hospital. All of the papers had the name Rosa just different middle names. Kind of cute right?

2. Where were you born?
Sioux City, Iowa.

3. What is your favorite movie? 
That is hard to answer. I'm a total movie junkie, me and my siblings love having movie nights and love going to the movies. But . . . if I had to pick it would probably my favorite childhood movie . . Thumbelina. I use to watch it on repeat 24/7 when I was little and I still watch it every now and then now. It brings me a weird sense of comfort. :) 

4. Summer or Winter?
While I was born in Iowa, I moved to Phoenix, Arizona when I was five. I still vividly remember the cold. And well everyone knows Arizona is an inferno all on it's own. So my answer is neither. If I could live somewhere where it was never too hot or too cold that would be perfect. But in all honesty Arizona has my heart.

5. Do you have kids?
Not yet. 

6. Hobbies?
Hmm where do I start; I love to read and write (although I don't do it as much as I would want to), I love taking pictures, I'm no photographer just a person with an eye for a good shot. And well pretty much anything outdoors . . . hiking, off-roading, shooting, fishing, going out on the lake, I love it all! My boyfriend Billy is the one constantly taking me out on adventures and I couldn't be more thankful. Other than that does spending time with my family count as a hobby? I have quite a large family, so a moment with them is never boring and always full of laughter. 

7. Favorite book of all time?
Well . . . that's a very hard one. I have read many books and many books have left pieces of their stories in my heart. But . . . if I had to choose one it would be Tuesday's With Morrie by Mitch Albom. That is the book that has truly shaped me and helped through some really hard times. I always buy extra copies and give them away to people that I think need Morrie's words. If you haven't read it I truly recommend it!

8. Do you have any pets?
Yes! I have little pup named Daisy. Believe it or not she is almost 7 years old. Many people ask me what breed she is but as far as I know shes just a very very small Maltese. She loves to say hi to people, loves treats, but most of all loves to cuddle. She also thinks she is the queen of the house. 

9. Favorite holiday?
My favorite holiday is the Fourth of July. Otherwise known as independence day. I know it's really random but ever since I can remember my parents would take us to the park every year to watch the fireworks where my whole family would meet up and have this huge picnic. The park we have always gone to has water slides and live music so the vibe is very welcoming. 

10. Do you speak any other language? 
Yes, I speak Spanish also.

11. How many siblings do you have?
I have two siblings. I am the oldest, then comes my sister Estefani whom just graduated high school and then my brother Emiliano who is in 8th grade. 

12. What is your favorite store?
Target. I mean who doesn't love target. Also don't let me in an Ulta or Sephora . . . damage will be done. 

13. What is your favorite drink? 
Water is my main source of hydration. I try to stick to only water. It's been about two years now of no soda! I am also a lover of tea, natural juices, and the occasional coffee.

14. Favorite color?
I don't think my favorite color has a name . . . its a mix of blue and green but it's not turquoise but more like a dark teal. I usually just say blue because it's hard to explain as you can see. :) 

15. Are you married?
No, not yet. All in due time!

16. Have you ever been out of the country?
Sadly no . . . I would love to travel all over the world but traveling is so expensive. Well I mean I've been to Mexico to my parents home town. It's a second home so I don't consider that out of the country. Besides that I've only traveled within the United States . . . I've so far been to California, Washington D.C., New York, Iowa, New Mexico, and Arizona. Most of the time my family likes to road trip so I've been to other states just not really explored them or anything. If I did get the chance to be out of the country my top two places to go to is England and Greece. 

17. What is your favorite song at the moment?
Currently I'm loving the song Lost Boy by Ruth B. When I was younger I use to wish I could go to Neverland and not grow up. What kid didn't! 

18. How tall are you?
5'7 I'm somewhat tall I guess . . . It's an insecurity of mine, I love heels but refrain from wearing them because I feel like such a giraffe. But every now and then I'll get moments of confidence and put some on.

19. What is the last movie you saw?
The Conjuring 2. . . I'm . . . I still am trying to recuperate from it. haha

20. What quote do you live by?
I don't really live by one quote, being a book worm I have all these quotes for different occasions that just pop up in my head. The one quote that sticks out to me the most right now is "I always choose to love, even when people never really deserve it. At least my intention, my energy, and my love were never mediocre. Something like that can be misunderstood but is never wrong. I commend my heart for that, because no matter what: my love was and always will be real." - Feliciana Cacciapuoti

I think that is a good note to end on. Anyways I hope this was a good little insider, if you have any questions feel free to ask! And remember chin up beautiful.

Ipsy June Glam Bag 2016

                                                                                                                                                   It's here! After about two months of trying out Ipsy I think it is time I start writing some reviews. I find it fun seeing what other people got in their glam bags and reading what they think of the products they received. So why not throw another review/first impression into the mix! 

I think this by far has been my favorite glam bag. I haven't gotten many but this is the first bag that has really excited me about all the goodies in it! The brush is from Royal & Langnickel and it is a crease/smudge brush. I love love the color of it and am really excited to blend my eye shadow with it. It looks promising! *crosses fingers. The little pink bottle you see in the middle is by Delectable and is described as an "everything balm" at first I was really confused on what that meant. The bottle says lips . . . then cuticles . . . then cheekbones and I'm like . . . what the heck where does it go then?? After looking it up I guess it literally does go everywhere. You can use it to nourish split ends or even brighten your dark eye circles. I already tried it on my lips . . . it feels awesome and smells even better. 

First of all . . . the colors to this blush and highlighter are definitely in my color palette. Both have a unique gold undertone that really pops and glows. Which I'm not use to going with more bold things but sometimes it's a must! 

The blush is by Elizabeth Mott the range is called Show Me Your Cheeks (p.s. that is genius and cute!) and it is in the shade Peach Pink. When swatching the product on my had I felt the formula to be nice and creamy and you definitely don't need much to show off your cheeks! The color is well a peachy pink with a gold sparkle. I am going to be wearing this on my cheeks tomorrow no doubt. Also can we talk about that highlighter . . . the picture isn't giving it justice but boy does it glow. It is by Jouer in the shade Tiare. It is a cream highlighter, which is nice for the summer if you want a more dewy finish. I'm excited to try these two together!

Last but not least . . . I think what is my favorite out of all the goodies . . . the Urban Decay Eye Shadow in Lounge. I have one sort of like it but it is a loose powder. I really have nothing much else to say but that this eye shadow gives me life. *throws hands up in the air. 

That is all for right now! I hope all of you are having a wonderful summer and are truly living to the fullest. I'm off to do some more homework and continue to obsess over these products. 

Live freely and remember to hug your loved ones. With so much tragedy in the world it is unjust how quickly they can be taken away from us. Love always wins.
