10 Day "You" Challenge | Nine Loves

Day two of the "You" Challenge! I always picture someone pointing harshly at me when I type "You"! Today's challenge is talking about your nine loves (whoops, almost wrote nine lives would have been an entirely different post haha) You guys already know about my love of mermaids (although that was a biggie so I put it in as number one anyway), shopping, Harry Potter, and hot sauce. So I thought I would find some things you guys didn't know I loved! Away we go ...

#1 // Mermaids
If I didn't, would I be the The Mod Mermaid?!

#2 // Mihai (aka my boyfriend, aka the boy who winces at such a title)
I love him to bits and pieces. He makes me angry and happy all at the same time! If he reads this he might not like that I wrote that or called him the b-word. In the words of Mihai "I am not your boyfriend ... I am your best friend." 

#3 // Chipotle
You know how you can crave a food and as soon as you get some you are completely satisfied? This never happens with Chipotle. I can sit there and eat a Chipotle burrito bowl one after another, after another. I never stop craving it. My body probably thinks it's some sort of spicy drug and it can't get enough!

#4 // Coffee
I had my first sip of coffee when I was 5 years old and have been addicted since. I don't know why I love it so much. Could be the taste or definitely the smell! In high school I wasn't allowed to have any coffee because it made me super hyper. It still does but I'm an adult now and no one can tell me what to do anymore :P

#5 // Art
In high school I was an art major and went to an art school. Art has been a passion of mine since my dad taught me how to draw a table in perspective. I'm not very good, really average, as loads are better than me so I didn't pursue it in college as a major. The picture above is of one of my dry-etched prints of the eiffel tower. Every time I look at this I get mad and then sad that I'm not continuing on with it. 

#6 // Reading
Reading is an escape. Ask anyone who reads because it truly is. I love immersing myself in someone else's life and reading about their story. I love how I get to imagine what every thing and everyone looks like. Everything just fades away when I read.

#7 // Dressing up to go out
Who doesn't love to get all dolled up in your favorite hair, make-up, outfit, and shoes and go out on the town with your friends or family. I don't get to do this often so I love when I do. I feel so fabulous ;)

#8 // Scents
This may sound weird but I love really amazing smelling things. I sometimes get attracted to people because of the wonderful way they smell. I love the Bath & Body Works Fine Fragrance Mists! Mostly though, I love the way men's cologne smells. MMM, MMM, MM!

#9 // The UK
I've never been but I am in love with the United Kingdom! Everything about the places and the people and the accents and the culture ( I could go on and on) just entices me so much! I always have this dream of living in London. Not for very long, but I want to experience it all as a resident, not a tourist. (P.S. - A good 1/4 of my wardrobe is donned with the Union Jack haha)

There you have it! Nine loves. I hope you guys are enjoying this challenge; participating and/or reading it! I shall be here on Friday to tell you about my Eight Fears! OoOoO!

  3. Love this! I really want to go to Chipotle (which in my head I actually pronounce Chip, then the 'otle' part sounds like bottle without the b, even though I know this isn't how it's said!). Haha, I'm still undecided on my love for coffee. I can only handle it with a flavour to it, like a vanilla latte, or mocha, sometimes a caramel machiatto. Your picture of the Eiffel tower is amazing! I thought it was a photograph when I first saw it. You should definitely start drawing again. I find it so hilarious that you have so many Union Jack clad clothing. I detest our flag! So much. I live in Northern Ireland so it's a completely different context here than it is in London, it's used more to mark which area you come from and whether you class yourself as British or Irish, so it's not a nice thing and it's quite sad really. I love your flag and need to own more clothing with it :D x

    1. I call it Chip-ohtles, haha! Call it what you will same place and same delicious food! Ha, thanks so much :) I'm going to try to do more after college is over. Oh boy, that's crazy! So is there a British and Irish flag? (oup, I'm dumb, just looked it up and I don't know how I didn't know) I can imagine that causes a lot of disputes if everyone is hanging what they see themselves as for everyone else to see and judge. I'm sorry! *runs to grab Irish flag clad clothing! :D

    2. Haha, I don't like the irish flag either for the exact same reason! The people who live in my country are just idiots!

  6. I love chipotle as well and hope to someday visit the UK. Since I saw all the photos from the olympics I think it's now one of the top 3 places I want to go. Just the weather is lousy though, but hey? What can you do!
