The Autumn Tag

1. Okay, we're talking coffee. What is your favourite seasonal drink from Starbucks/Costa/Cafe Nero?
I hate Starbucks nor do I drink coffee. 

2. Accessories - What do you opt for - boots, scarf, gloves?
Scarves. I do wear Uggs, but I hate them. They feel like moon boots; but I wear them because I take public transportation and NYC winters can be brutal. 

3. Music - What do you love to listen to during the Autumn?
I pretty much keep the same playlist, but I'm always looking for new music. Lately I've been listening to Swedish artist Tove Lo. 

4. Perfume - what's your favorite scent at this time of the year?
I don't wear perfume much. If I do it's from Bath and Body Works and it's a nice autumn scent,  like apple or something. 

5. Candles - which scents will you be burning this season?
Omg, I love candles! Right now I have a Pumpkin Spice and an Apple  candle out. 
6. What do you love most about Autumn?
Everything! The scents, food, leaves, colors, Halloween, etc.

7. Favorite make up look?
I hardly wear makeup. 

8. What are you looking forward to most during this season?
Halloween. I'm planning a Halloween party for October 24th with my therapist. It's for her, me, and her clients.  I can't wait! It helps that I'm being certified in event planning and I'm glad she asked me to help.

This week: 
opening, bookmarking, wearing, trying, listening, and going

I'm currently opening, well re-opening, my Etsy shop and making crafts for my shop, Sundresses and Songbirds. 

I'm currently bookmarking a ton of recipes and crafts on Pinterest. I'm always saving things on there and forgetting about them. 

I'm currently wearing a purple short sleeve t-shirt and gray shorts. 

I'm currently trying to do the 21 Day Project, where for 21 days you commit to a certain task; like exercising, reading, crafting, dieting, etc. 

I'm currently listening to music. Nothing in particular; lately nothing has really caught my attention. I haven't found any new music, I've listening to top 40, and just flipping through the songs. Which is unlike me. I used to find new music everyday and listen to underground music. 

I'm currently going nuts trying to find a job.

What If I Won The Lotto

Helene in Between Blogtober

If I won the lottery, I would travel the world. I'd go to all the states, England, Ireland, Spain, Italy, France, Poland, Germany, Sweden, Dominican Republic, Australia, Canada....I think you get the picture. 

I would also move out of my parents house and buy a house for Jose and I. Maybe if it's enough money, I'd quit my job. I'd give some money to my parents to help them and some to my future mother in law. 

I'd buy a dog, new clothes, a car, and anything else that caught my eye. I would also use it to pay for my wedding. 

I'd go to culinary school and give money to Jose to go back and pay off his debts. Maybe I'd even start my own bakery or restaurant.

Gosh! There so many things I would do, I can't even think of them all! I did the win the lottery once, though. Not a lot, just $10; but it was on my birthday and I was pretty happy.

Blogger Men Tell All

Becoming Adorrable

Here's my cute as can be fiance, Jose :) We met and made it official on January 1, 2013. He's 25 and I'm 23, but who cares, right? He's a Criminal Justice major and the best fiance a girl could ask for. He's sweet, kind, loving (of course), funny, short like me, and my soul mate. He's also a city boy with a country soul. Yesterday was actually our 1 year and 9 month anniversary! Anyway, enough about us; here's what he had to say. 

1. If you had a blog what would you call it and what would it be about?
Intellectual Blog. All about everyday life. 

2. If you could live inside any videogame, which would it be?
Grand Theft Auto San Andreas. 

3. Who is your best player on your fantasy football team this season?
Peyton Manning. He's his favorite player. 

4. If you could play for any professional sports team, which would it be?
Denver Broncos. I want to play with Peyton :)

5. What do you typically do with an hour of free time?
Spend time with me :), listening to sports radio, listening to music, and research.

watching, learning, considering, needing, changing

I'm currently watching a food show on Travel channel. They're showing so many delicious and yummy looking sandwiches. I'm a foodie and I watch a lot of cooking/food shows. Plus, I do want to go to culinary school next year. I can't wait; food is my life! 

I'm currently loving the autumn. My favorite holiday, Halloween, is coming up and it's pumpkin-cozy-comfort food season. All those yummy smelling fragrances, beautiful colors, cinnamon, clover, nutmeg, Thanksgiving, scary movies, cardigans, etc. I love autumn! Since, I live in NY I practically live in jeans, boots, sweaters, and jackets. We only get like 3-4 months of warm weather and then it's cool weather the rest of the year. 

I'm currently considering going to culinary school earlier than planned. Also, I'm considering getting a small tattoo.  

I'm currently learning to loosen up more. I'm very serious and rigid.I try to loosen up and fun when I'm out but it's difficult for me. 

I'm currently needing sleep, a job, freedom from my parents house, a vacation, new clothes, and more books. 

I'm currently changing my wardrobe from summer clothes to fall/winter.

Me In A Nutshell

Hello there! I'm Courtney, a 23 year old who's engaged. I'll be marrying the love of my life in 2016. I turn another year older every July 2. I live in NYC and I'm currently working on getting a better paying job and my first apartment with my fiance Jose. I graduated from college in May 2013 and I'm getting my certification in event and wedding planning. Next, I'm going on to culinary school in 2015. I'm an only child or as I used to say when I was younger, a lonely child. I love music, crafting, reading, cooking, baking, pinterest, Halloween and Christmas, the summer and fall, decorating, and writing. 

I'm also a hippie, an artist, an observer, and a free/new age thinker. I'm spiritual, meaning I don't follow a religion and I have my own beliefs. I believe in foraging and freeganism and I'm not keen on consumerism. If I can get something for free, I'll grab it and run. I believe politics and organized religion are a bunch of B.S. I don't follow the crowd and I create my beliefs. I'm a simple person. I have a hippie and boho style. I don't really follow trends or wear the latest stuff. I don't wear makeup or fancy jewelry. I like to wear comfortable clothing. That's my style; hippie, boho, comfortable clothing. 

That's me in a nutshell! 

Oh, and I'm a Jamberry Nails ccnsulstant (post coming soon). Check my website out here.
