Question and answer time!
Sorry for my lack of posts lately, I have been really busy with getting ready for school ( I leave in just one WEEK!). I cannot believe I leave in only a week! I feel like the summer as truly flown by! I am so glad I started my blog this summer and so thankful to all of you wonderful readers. It always brightens my day to read all of your lovely comments and to see I have a new follower. It's great to read your blogs and learn about new and creative things. Y'all are really wonderful! I had said in my post a few days ago that I would do a question and answer post, so here it is!
What college will you be attending this fall?
I will be going to University of Dayton in Dayton,Ohio. It is about five hours from my town so not too terribly far. As you already know, I am very excited!
What will you be studying in college?
My major is English Education. I plan on being a middle or high school English teacher. My mother is a teacher and I see just how extremely rewarding it is to make such a difference in a child's life.
What kind of music do you listen to?
Well as y'all know, I really like indie bands like Delta Spirit, Andrew Bird, Ben Folds, and Vampire Weekend but I also like all kinds of music. I like to listen to Frank Sinatra (just like Summer Wind!), Beyonce and Black Eyed Peas when working out, Coldplay, Kanye West and I love all of the OC Mix CDS.
What are your guilty pleasures?
Oh goodness, well I am TOTAL sucker for bad reality television. I DVR all of my favorites including NYC Prep, Real Housewives, Toddlers and Tiaras (it's so addicting!), and all of the bad MTV shows. Reality television is enticing!
What is your favorite store?
I would have to say my favorite store would probably be J.Crew. Most of my clothes is from J.Crew and their clothes seem to fit me the best. I love when the catalogs come and looking at them over and over again for new styling ideas. I also really like The Gap and Ann Taylor Loft. Most recently I have gotten into the LL Bean craze and just ordered a bunch of clothes for college. I sadly have never gone to a Lilly store! Can you believe that? There's only one in IL and it's very far away so all of the Lilly things I have I have gotten at either Ross or online.
What's your favorite item of clothing?
I guess I don't have one favorite item but a few that I think I will hang onto forever. My J.Crew cashmere monogrammed sweater I got for Christmas that I wear to pieces would definitely be a favorite of mine. I am a big fan of dresses and seem to buy one every time I go shopping. I also love capri's, I have them mostly every color and wear them quite often. I think they are very feminine and always look so cute.
Are you planning on rushing a sorority?
I am planning on rushing. At my school, you do not rush until second semester so I will have plenty of time to get acclimated and find which sorority fits me the best. I am hoping there is a Kappa Kappa Gamma on campus!
What is your favorite television show?
My favorite television show would definitely be Gossip Girl. I just love Blair, she is so fabulous and I also really love Chuck Bass. Blair's style is impeccable and I love all of her bows and headbands.
Do you have a boyfriend?
I do not have a boyfriend. I did not have a boyfriend all of high school actually. The boys that I went to high school with were never my type and were always very immature and into the same kind of girl. I am hoping that the boys in college will be different and I will be able to find my kind of boy. I like preppy boys, not a surpise, and boys that are nice of coarse and have good morals and get along with many types of people.
What is something you are proud of?
Well of coarse I am very proud of myself for getting into a good college. I am also proud of myself for becoming a lot braver and less square. Something my friends and I were proud of this past school year was being voted "Best Dressed" in our school's yearbook for our Blair Waldorf style. We all just about died when we found out that we all got it and it was because of our Blair style! It was very exciting!
How did you get the idea to start blogging?
I had read blogs for quite awhile before I got the idea to start my own. I used to read the Teen Vogue website and came across the blog section and that is where I first found out about blogs. I then starting reading Teen Fashionista and somehow came across Hopsy's blog. I fell in love with all of her Lilly's and her positive and creative take on life. I found many others that I loved along the way and after graduating high school decided to take the plunge and start College Belle!
I hope you learned a little something about me! Have a lovely night, only a few more days until the weekend!
