11 Things...


Good afternoon,
 I had planned to do and post an awesome Hunger Games manicure for today but I feel like trash (I'll still do it later on). So here is this tag I was tagged on (what?...) By Two lovely ladies. Nify Ba! and Nail Polish Therapy. I just met these amazing girls not long ago at the March Meet-up for Central Florida beauty bloggers (#beautybloggersorlando). So anyways.. I feel terrible.. I don't have anything quite ready to post so I figured I would do this tag. I dont normally do tags but I need something to take my mind off my whole body aching. I've spent most of my day, which started at 4:00 am, plowing though The Hunger Games Trilogy. Now my eyes need a break  from the Kindle but I still need mayah distractions... So here is this thing :-S.
The Rules
1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves on their blog.
2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you plus eleven questions for the people you have tagged to answer.
3. Choose eleven people and link them in your tag.
4. Email the person to let them know that they’ve been tagged.
5. No tag backs.
6. You legitimately have to tag. (Um... No.. I don't lol... I suck at these things... too...lazy...can't..tag...)
11 Things About Me, Cristina
1. I don't know if I can come up with 11 things about me. I always blank when it comes to things like this which is why I usually avoid tags like the plague. I don't think I'm very interesting.

2. I have a hard time making new friends. I'm kinda shy, kinda weird and very awkward. 
3. Which brings me to point no.3.. I don't know how, but when I am at work I can be little miss Sunshine and pull it off like I'm such a social butterfly lol. It's the craziest thing.
4. I love my job.

(30 min of staring off into space later)
6. I love reading. My favorite authors are Chuck Palahniuk, Ellen Hopkins, Suzanne Collins (OMG You don't say?!lol) I'm sure there are more authors I like but these are the ones I really love. I've never read the Harry Potter Books but I def. plan on it and I'm sure I will love them.
7. My favorite kind of food is anything Authentic Puerto Rican. Arroz con Gandulez, Pasteles, Alcapurrias... And now I'm hungry.

My Bed. It's safe. It's warm... It's where I do one of my favorite things..... SLEEP!!!

  1. Feel better soon! Enjoy the books - best to read them all first before seeing even the first movie. You are doing it right!
    1. If you could be ANY nail polish color from any brand, which color would you be and why? CG Riveting - no idea why - I am just into that shade and OPI's Roll In The Hague. Loving the oranges.
    2. What food could you eat until you got sick? Trader Joe's Almond paste stuffed cookies - they have bitter sweet choc. dipped on one end.

    9. Everyone always asks "What is your favorite song?". I'm gonna go the opposite way. What is a song that gets on your nerves? Hummm. I guess it would have to be something in the Rap genera since I am a non rap fan - I don't even know a name of one to give ya here that's how much I don't like it and it does make me nervous when it's on in someone's car to the point I have to ask to change it.
    10. What is your favorite book? Gads, totally hard one for me. Maybe To Kill A Mockingbird, or one no one will have heard of called 'Motoring With Mohammad.'

  5. I forgot to answer 2 of them so here they are now:
    4. What is your least favorite part of your beauty routine? Washing and getting my hair dry. I am growing it out and it's at that horrible between lenght. But it takes a long time now to wash and dry vs. when it was short.
    5. What is the craziest thing you have ever done to your hair? I used that old spray in go sit in the sun stuff called 'Sun In.' Don't think they make it anymore. Loved how it looked with the first dose so I went in and put on a ton more. My hair turned Bozo the clown orange! I was a lovely natural blond when I did this - what a nut case! Took a lot of Loving Care and embarrassment over time to get it back to normal.

  6. Oh My Blog Hero/Guru! Thank you for answering my questions even though you weren't feeling well! You are such a gem :) We share a love of authentic Puerto Rican food and the comfort of our bed :) Feel better soon

  7. Hope you're feeling better! *HUGS*

    Thanks for the "open tag" :)

    My answers:
    1. If you could be ANY nail polish color from any brand, which color would you be and why? Either an Ozotic multichrome or Liquid Euphoria Bliss.....I am very eclectic and love to wear vibrant colors, have lots of interests, consider myself mulit-faceted.


    2. What food could you eat until you got sick? Chocolate. All Types, all forms, all flavors

    3. What is your favorite item of clothing that you could wear every day? My nose ring

    4. What is your least favorite part of your beauty routine? Facial hair ugh.

    5. What is the craziest thing you have ever done to your hair? You'd think I'd say dyeing it pink/purple but I think the most drastic was having it go from below my shoulderblades to my earlobes in length. I cried. Though I'm about to have it cut even more drastic (shorter) and dyed hot pinkish red.

    6. At what age did you start wearing make up? 15. My parents were uber strict.

    7. What is something you do once in a while just to pamper yourself? Get my hair done in a salon. But with my head/neck issues it hurts to do that anymore :(

    8. What is your favorite 90's TV show? Buffy the Vampire Slayer (duh)

    9. Everyone always asks "What is your favorite song?". I'm gonna go the opposite way. What is a song that gets on your nerves? Ok the only thing I can think of--and bear with me--is The National Anthem. Here's why: I love to perform it for sporting events. But I do it old-school, traditional, no embellishments. So when I hear a performer who really has no business embellishing it, or sings it way to slow, or doesn't know the words (biggest. peeve. ever.) or sings wrong notes (there's a sharp in there that some sing as a natural and that is my 2nd biggest peeve ever) or god help us all, starts the song out too high and kills the high note......yeah a little part of me dies inside. I am NOT a pro but at least I sing the song with the respect it deserves and do it well.

    10. What is your favorite book? Gone with the Wind

    11. Kitties or Puppies? GAWD that's hard....tho I'm going to say puppies ONLY because kittehz have sharp bitty claws that hurt.
