4 Things (In My Room, In My Purse, That You Don't Know, etc.) TAG

The Rules
  1. Name the person who tagged you. Thank you cocoabee for tagging me!! Visit her at her lovely blog. =)
  2. You need to have 4 answers at every question
  3. Tag 4 other bloggers
  4. Let them know you tagged them
I really enjoyed this tag. It basically sums "me" up in one post! Anyways, here we go..

4 Favorite Things In Room

My makeup area is my absolute favorite area of my room. I keep most of my makeup vanities/drawers under a desk and in the cubbies of the desk. The "daily" makeup, brushes, wipes, etc. go on top. I try to do my makeup here but I almost always resort to doing it on the floor in front of my closet mirrors.

My closet is my second favorite part of my room. I really love the closet system I have (shelves, cubbies) and try to keep it as organized as I can. The only problem is I'm having so trouble fitting everything in there as you can see. =P

My bookshelf is where I store my books, magazines, journals, old projects, and so much more. I have a really hard time throwing out anything that's in my bookshelf -everything feels so important.

My feathery paper fans are loud and sort of random but I love them because my room is mostly pink and green. I was really happy when my friend Malcolm gave them to be about 4 years ago.

4 Things In My Bag/Purse

Ok I have way more than this in my purse (what girl doesn't?) but I tried to scale it down to my 4 "main" items. I switch between the 2 wallets above -the black one is stuffed with all my coupons and the HK one is for when I don't want to carry such a heavy wallet. Keys are an essential -so is my IPod. I also carry my Nintendo DS Lite with me everywhere because I never know when I'll need to kill some time.
This is the main bag I've been using lately. I got it at Old Navy earlier this year for about $7 on sale! People always ask me where I got it expecting it to be expensive but nopeeee.. it's Old Navy! =P

4 Things I Found In My Desk/Office Drawer

I don't really have a desk drawer but here are some random things in the drawers all around my room.

My bead drawer! I'd cry if I ever lost this. I love my beads and use them for jewelry, accessories, and more.
My art supplies drawers are also really important to me. I'm obsessed with art markers, sharpies, crayons, etc. I keep my paints and stuff in boxes though.

My school supplies drawer holds all my back-up school supplies including erasers, pens, markers, notebooks, folders, paper, and more. I love, love, love buying new school supplies -it makes learning exciting. =P

My ribbons drawer.. I don't know if I've mentioned it before but I love wrapping presents and making them look all pretty so a "ribbons drawer" is a must for me.

4 Things I Bet You Didn't Know About Me

My favorite t-shirt is loose and has a low v-neck.. preferably with a pocket on the chest. When I love something, I buy a million versions of it. Here's some of my loose low v-neck tees. Most are from the GAP but some are from American Apparel and Old Navy as well. I love simple clothing.. my basic every day outfit is a v-neck, jeans or leggings, and a cardigan or hoodie.
I'm a sticker whore. Ever since I can remember, I've had an obsession with stickers. I love to use them to decorate all my school supplies, cards, presents, and more.

I used to want to be a fashion designer. My mom was a fashion designer so growing up, I always wanted to be one too. I wanted to be one since I was about 4 and the dream died when I was 17. I just lost interest and realized that being a designer is way too unstable of a career for me.

I love the zoo. There's something about the zoo that just makes me really, really happy. I do however feel a bit guilty seeing all the animals "locked in cages" but I do feel that most zoos treat the animals nicely and really care about them. I would feel horrible if the zookeepers were mistreating the animals.

4 Things I'm Currently Into

My TOMS.. I've been rocking my TOMS almost every day since I got them. They're super comfortable and perfect for walking around all day -my campus is crazy.. LOTS of walking uphill and downhill.

Vampire Diaries has been an obsession for a while now but I think it's an amazing show and I'd be really, really upset if they cancelled it. I love Stefan -I think he's way better than Twilight's Edward. He's so much more real than Edward.. Damon's cool too but I like Stefan more.

Hot Chocolate! For some reason I can't stop drinking this. I don't have any of the fancy stuff at home, just the Nestle, but it's still super yummy and I like topping it off with some whipped cream.

Girl Time! I don't have a decent (recent) picture of me and my girls but I've really been loving girl time lately. Most of my friends are guys so I really value the time I have with my girls -you just can't talk about certain things around guys and having that girl time is really, really important.

4 Things I've Always Wanted To Do

To meet K-Ci. I'm pretty sure those who read my blog already know I love K-Ci (from Jodeci) but I've always really, really wanted to meet him. I think I'd faint if I did.

To see Dwight Howard play in person. I also want to see a bunch of others like Derrick Rose, Dwyane Wade, and LeBron James.

To travel to Japan. I've always wanted to go to Japan.. I also want to go to the UK, Australia, and back to Paris. Oh and I want to go to New York! ..I've never been. =(

To write a book and have it published. I'd just want a book with a collection of my poems and short stories. I don't know if I'd be able to write an entire novel though -I'd get bored with the story.

Whewww! Finally done. I'd like to tag Erynn, Justine, Tiffany, Melissa, and anyone who wants to do the tag.
