I was recently nominated for the sunshine award by Ashley of allthingsbeautyx. Thank you Ashley for the nomination!

1. Post 11 random facts about yourself
2. Answer the 11 questions asked by the blogger who nominated you
3. Nominate 11 bloggers you think bring sunshine to the world
4. Make up 11 questions for your nominations to answer

I'm going to break the rules and skip the 11 random facts. (oops!)

My answers to Ashley's questions: 

1. Jeans or Leggings? Skinny jeans
2. What was your best experience? 3.5 years of college; meeting my best friends, taking an awesome spring break trip, landing a job, and meeting my future husband!
3. What is your favorite film? The Holiday
4. Do you want to stay in the country you live or move to another country some time? I don't know that I would want to permanently move, but if my work needed a volunteer to go work in our London office for oh, say 6 months I would jump at the chance :)

6. Favorite season? Fall!
7. If you were only allowed to wear 2 pieces of makeup what would they be? BB Cream and Mascara
