Sophie Asked:

1. Who is your blog inspiration?
    The gold is inspired by Kate Spade's designs.

2. If you could change your hair for one day, what would you want to do?
    I would do anything to it! I have never dyed my hair, only had haircuts. I would want to ombre my hair so very much, but I am too big of a scaredy cat to try...

3. What was the best concert or gig you've ever been to?
     I don't know if this counts, but I was an extra in Pitch Perfect 2, and their performances were on point! I cannot wait for the premiere on May 5, 2015!

4. Where did you go on your last Holiday?
     Last Holiday? Hmm... I don't think I've had an actual holiday since I left for college. Last place I traveled to is Disney World in Florida for my Senior trip.

5. If you could meet any three people, alive or dead, who would they be?
    I would want to meet my great-grandparents.

6. What's your most wished for Christmas present this year?
     A sweet camera to take awesome pictures for my blog :)

7. What product would you recommend most to people?
     I am in love with my Macbook. It is very efficient and a great investment.

8. Favorite word to use?
    "Hello!" Let me tell you a little story... Growing up, I was very shy. I wouldn't do anything myself where it involves people. But nowadays, I am more social and outgoing. I see it a lot in myself, which is surprising, but I am proud of myself. I grew out of my shell, and I'm not afraid to say hello or work up a conversation.

9. Last book you read?
    Haha! If you know me, you know that I hate reading! I know, it's weird and sad... but the last book I read was probably for senior year: Of Human Bondage by W. Somerset Maugham

10. What advice would you give to people wanting to start a blog?
      Stay consistent with posting (something I need to improve on), and find your niche - something your passionate about or where you have a unique perspective - to target your own audience and to keep people's interest.

11. What do you do to cheer yourself up on a bad day?
      SHOPPING or just one phone call with Scott can cheer up any day :)

Eleven Facts:
1. A new camera is on my Christmas List for better blog pictures.
2. For almost all my non-adult life, I hated the color pink. Now it's one of my favorite colors.
3. First thing I do, when I enter a store, is check out the sales rack.
4. You can pretty much find me in any social media as SamanthaMgh (Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest...).
5. My favorite part of the school year is school supply shopping.
6. The only country I have visited is the Philippines.
7. I have more lip products than anything in my "makeup collection."
8. I want to start getting into jewelry. Specifically, earrings and statement necklaces.
9. I wish I had started blogging my senior year of high school.
10. I am scared to start a new TV series on Netflix because it will consume my life.
11. I want to learn more recipes to make tasty home-cooked meals.
