Q & A:

Do you collect anything? If so, what? Shoes, shoes, shoes. I have over fifty pairs and I just might have bought some more on “accident”. Whoops!

If a film was made of your life, which famous actor/actress would you have play the part of you and why? Mmm, probably Helena Bonham Carter, because she’s quirky and unique enough to embrace the weirdness that is Lil Red. And, not to mention, that she’s drop dead gorgeous!!

What do you consider to be your best quality? My charming personality and staggering good looks. 😉 😉 😉

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be and why? Honestly, nothing. I like myself and am proud of myself.

What are your favorite makeup brands and why? I love NYX because they have the best matte lipsticks and I’m definitely a CoverGirl at heart, as well.

Recommend a favorite book and/or film and tell me why you recommend it. I recommend Pan’s Labyrinth to everyone. I love the work of the director, Guillermo Del Toro, and I think this film is him at his best. Pan’s Labyrinth really is an adult fairy tale and I could watch it every day and never grow tired of it.

Where would you most like to visit and why? France, so I can practice speaking French with the locals. And, of course, for the amazing scenery, food, and shopping!

What’s your favorite food? TACO BELL.

What’s you’re favorite drink? Coffee, I’m a Diet Coke fiend, and as far as alcohol goes, I love moscato, champagne, and the strawberry lemon drop martinis that my favorite bar serves.

Liebster Award #9

Hi everyone and happy Thursday!! Today is an exciting day because lifewithlilred just got nominated for its ninth Liebster Award. I want to thank my kind nominator, Karissa from Karissa Jacksn so much for thinking of lifewithlilred while creating your post! Karissa is absolutely darling and I know that you’ll enjoy her page so do check it out and give it some love! Now, let’s get to the rules:

The Rules:

  • Acknowledge the blogger who nominated you.
  • Answer the 11 questions given by the blogger.
  • Nominate 11 other bloggers.
  • Ask 11 new questions for them to answer.

Q & A:

Where is your favorite hangout spot? I love going to the Cashmere Cricket with my friends. It’s my favorite bar and it has the most amazing martinis!

What reminds you most of your childhood? Uhhh, I don’t know, I never really thought about it.

What is your favorite candy? Anything sour! I love Sour Patch Kids, Warheads, Sour Skittles, and Shockers.

Texting or calling? Why? It really depends. If I’m trying to have an in depth conversation or make plans with someone, then definitely calling. But if it’s just a “whatever” chit chat, then texting it is!

What is your favorite drink? I like water and coffee. My favorite pop is Diet Coke. My favorite alcoholic drink is moscato and the Strawberry Lemon Drop Martinis from the Cashmere Cricket.

If you could live on a different planet, would you do it? Why? Why not?! If it were an actual civilization and not some barren wasteland, then sure!

Are you now, or were you ever afraid to go to the dentist? Yes! I always have been. I hate going to the dentist and the eye doctor because anything to do with teeth or eyes makes me really squeamish. This all stems from my love of horror movies because so many flicks have painful scenes that have to do with teeth or eyes and that just really gets to me. Freaking YUCK.

Do you have any celebrity crushes? Do I ever! Jack White, Marilyn Manson, Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie, Britney Spears, and Gwen Stefani, just to name a few!

Did you decorate your living space? Do you like it? No I didn’t because I’m still at home. But I don’t hate it or anything – it’s home!

City or Suburb? Why? Mmmm…suburb. Cities would just be too much for me and the constant noise and hustle and bustle would be so anxiety provoking, in my opinion.

What’s one piece of advice you would give to your younger self? Not to get so worked up about what other people think.

My Nominees (I’m only doing three):

My Questions For You:

  1. What is your favorite social media platform?
  2. What is your favorite holiday to celebrate?
  3. How do you treat yourself when you need a pick me up?

What beauty product can you not live without? I couldn’t live without a good moisturizer, face wash, and red lipstick (Of course.)!

What was your dream job when you were younger? An actress – but you know what? I think I would much rather be a blogger, instead. 🙂

What’s your biggest pet peeve? More like what ISN’T my biggest pet peeve?! Uhmm…Numero uno, though, is probably people who make sayings from memes their Facebook statuses and then take the credit like they made it up. WE’RE ON TO YOU AND YOU’RE NOT FUNNY. Petty? Yes. But it’s the truth!

What’s something you really want to achieve or do? I would very much like to be fully fluent in French in one year’s time, which I’m well on my way to.

Liebster Award #6

Liebster Award #6

Hi everyone and happy Thursday! I hope everyone’s week is going just swimmingly so far. Mine is going fine, thanks for asking. I am so excited to be nominated for my sixth Liebster Award here on lifewithlilred by my friend, Camille, over at Camille Shern! Her blog is a lot of fun so please be sure to check it out and give it some love! As you guys know, with all of these blogging awards comes a set of rules so check them out and then see how I answered the questions asked by the lovely Camille. Take a look:

The Rules:

  • Tag the person who nominated you and thank them.
  • Answer the ten questions you are given.
  • Nominate ten new bloggers and tag them.
  • Give them ten new questions to answer.
  • Notify your nominees.

Q & A:

1. Describe your blogging style in FIVE words?

Unique, humorous, engaging, fun, and quirky.

2. What is ONE beauty product you can’t live without? Why?

Red lipstick. Particularly the shade Pure Red from NYX. The bold red lip is my signature look and it makes me feel confident and beautiful every time I wear it.

3. If you were to do a makeup look for ONE person for the rest of your life, who would it be and why?

No one. I suck at doing makeup for other people. I can barely do my own makeup! 😉

4. What is ONE piece of advice you would give your younger self when it comes to beauty? Why?

That beauty is more about being confident and comfortable in your own skin than what your makeup or hair looks like. I think every younger person is always trying to fit in with the trends and what’s popular but it’s important to stay true to what you like so your own unique, personal style can be developed.

5. If you were not a blogger, what would you be doing right now?

I would be doing what I’m usually doing! Going to school, working, and being a baller.

6. What is ONE funny beauty horror story you had?

Every time I dye my hair with my trademark Runway Red by Vidal Sassoon is a horror story. Whenever I wash the dye out, it looks like the Texas Chainsaw Massacre was committed in my shower.

7. What is ONE product that you keep inside your every day makeup bag that you don’t really use at all?

Hmm… I don’t think I have an answer to this one. I’m not one to go makeup crazy at the store so everything that I have in my makeup stash is what I use as part of my daily routine.

8. What is the first thing you do in the morning as soon as you wake up?

Ugh, I hate saying this but I check my phone and Facebook! Such a millennial. -_-

9. What is ONE beauty routine you can’t live without?

Bubble baths!!!!

10. What is your main goal as a blogger?

To reach a wide variety of people and make new friends.

My Nominees (I’m only doing three):
