11 Random Facts About Me:
1.I am terrified of birds. Yes, seriously! I got one tangled in my hair when I was younger and now I just sort of panic whenever one gets too close!
2.I really hate pants. If I lived somewhere warm, I'd wear dresses and skirts every single day.
3.I don't mean to sound like a crazy cat lady, but I LOVE my cat. I would rather hang out with him than most people. 
4.I love Diet Coke too much. Like, I have actually been told I shouldn't drink it by my doctor due to some stomach issues, but I can't kick the habit. I need an intervention!
5.I am trying really hard to be more active. I was never into sports or anything as a kid and it's starting to catch up with me. So I keep trying yoga, pilates, running, biking, dancing, etc. attempting to find my 'thing.' 
6.Anyone who knows me from before I turned 18 knows me as Allie (please, for the love of god, spell it correctly!) and everyone who met me after that knows me as Allison. I honestly have no idea how this happened, but it's true. For the record, either is completely fine with me. 
7.I'm working on going back to school for a degree in Respiratory Therapy. I'd like to work in a Sleep Lab some day!
8.I have never broken a bone. Knock on wood. 
9.I love bright colors (NEON) and paisley. 
10.  My absolute favorite animals are goats. I think they are the most adorable creatures!
11.  I like watching pretty much any sort of crime show & EVERYTHING on HGTV.

Questions from Cookie: 
1) What is your go-to, never-failing, always-awesome beauty product?
Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner in Perversion. It's perfection. 
2) What's the one tricky fashion trend you wish you could pull off?
Skinny Jeans! I can wear them with boots, but I have yet to master wearing them with any other shoes...I always feel like my feet look extra huge in them. 
3) What's the most expensive beauty item you've bought?
I think the Urban Decay Vice Pallet. Worth every penny!
4) Quick! You have 15 seconds to gussy yourself up! What do you grab?
Benefit They're Real! Mascara, definitely. Revlon Just Bitten lip stain if I have a few extra seconds ;)
5) Discover a new color, describe and name it.
If there was a way to combine mint + lavender without it being ugly, I'd be in love with it & name it .... lavenmint? Bahaha. 
6) Name 3 actors that, when mixed, would be your ideal man. (and stop drooling)
Jason Segel. He's hilarious and I feel like he is probably one of the sweetest people alive.
Chris Pine. He's pretty. :)
Jake Johnson. He just seems sort of cynical and sarcastic and I like it.
7) If you could create a makeup line, what would you call it?
I'd call it HOTDAMN!
8) Would you rather be a very famous Blogger or a fairly well-known Vlogger?
Blogger. I get so nervous in front of cameras. I just end up rambling. 
9) What's your favorite magazine and why?
Not a big magazine reader, but I do love Rolling Stone. They always have interesting (and current!) articles. And I love love love music. 
10) What's your favorite beauty subscription?
Birchbox. It definitely has the best variety of products and has introduced me to things I can't live without now!
