Sequins and Sea Breezes: 20 Questions

20 Questions


Happy Friday babes! I decided to keep it a little lighter on the blog today since I know a lot of people are probably headed out of town for the long weekend or taking a little blogging break. I don't have any major plans this weekend but I will be gone Tuesday and Wednesday on a work related trip that I'll share with you later! But be sure to follow along with me on Instagram and Snapchat {pamelanicole84} because it should be a pretty crazy experience! I've been seeing a lot of bloggers "reintroducing" themselves and I've loved reading them so I thought I'd share 20 things you might not know about me on today's blog post!

1 //  How tall are you?
For some reason this surprises a lot of people, especially when they know me through the blog but meet me in person for the first time. I'm 5'1"

2 //  Do you have a hidden talent? If so, what?
I guess this could be considered a talent...I'm double jointed in my left elbow. It's hard to explain but a great party trick that everyone wants to see a few times to actually believe it ha!

  3 // What’s your biggest blog-related pet peeve?
Hmm... I think I'd have to say people who don't reciprocate or just leave a generic comment. I remember once I was talking about some pretty deep stuff but I posted a picture of me in an outfit, I got FAR more comments of "Cute outfit!" than I did relating to the actual post. And don't get me wrong, I understand being busy and not always being able to comment back but if you consistently don't comment back, don't expect me to keep coming!

4 //  What’s your biggest non-blog related pet peeve?
Probably the follow/unfollow thing on Instagram. SO freaking annoying. Don't follow me to have me follow you back then unfollow me and hope I don't notice. 

5 //  What’s your favorite song?
 Oh jeez. I definitely have more than one but I'll try to narrow it down: Chasing Cars - Snow Patrol, Motorcycle Drive By - Third Eye Blind, Ashes of Eden - Breaking Benjamin and Red - Taylor Swift. I LOVE music though so I constantly have "favorites" that rotate but those are my forever go-to's. 

6 //  What’s something people wouldn't know by looking at you blog?
 I'm actually pretty self-conscious. I love doing my blog but sometimes I get super uncomfortable shooting pictures. I can always tell by looking at them if there were people around watching or if I was alone.

7 //  What’s your favorite way to spend your free time when you’re alone?
Read. When it's cooler out I'll spend my weekend mornings reading on my back porch with a cup of coffee or tea and in the summer I love to read by the pool.

8 //  What’s your favorite junk food?
Anything with cheese. No seriously, pretty much anything. Cheetos, Cheez-Its, cheese dip, cheese and crackers, mac and cheese, cheese curds, cheese stuffed pretzels... and the list goes on. 

9 //  Do you have a pet or pets? If so, what kind and what are their names?
Sure do! I have a little boy Morkie (Yorkshire Terrier/Maltese mix) named Novie.

10 //  What are your number one favorite nonfiction and fiction books?
I honestly don't know if I have a favorite. I've probably re-read The Royal We the most just because it's a cute, light, easy read but I wouldn't say it's my favorite.

11 // What’s your favorite beauty product?
Mascara. Wait. Does lip balm count? I never leave home without lip balm.

12 //  When were you last embarrassed? What happened?
Pretty sure I embarrass myself every day, I'm just immune to it by now. Life is too short to take yourself too seriously so I just like to laugh and have fun.

13 //  If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life, what would it be?
I could live off of water and champagne, especially rosé.

14 //  What’s your favorite movie?
Another one I don't really have a definitive answer for. I'll go with The Princess Bride or Labyrinth though.

15 //  What were you in high school: prom queen, nerd, cheerleader, jock, valedictorian, band geek, loner, artist, prep?
I never really considered myself in a particular "clique" in high school. I was nominated for prom queen, I played an instrument (just not in band) and I was a dancer but I hung out with a bunch of different groups of people.

16 //  If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?
London or Key West. London is my favorite city but the beach has my heart.

17 //  PC or Mac?
I've used both throughout my professional career but I personally have a PC.
18 // Do you collect anything?
The hearts of men... just kidding. Memories (in picture form). And shot glasses. Somehow that collection started without me even realizing it and now I have more than I'll ever need considering how often I do shots (almost never).
19 // Any tattoos?
Surprisingly, or maybe not so surprisingly, nope! I've thought about it a few times and even gone into a tattoo parlor twice to get one but I'm still a blank canvas. 

20 //  What blogger do you secretly want to be best friends with?
It's definitely no secret that my real life bestie is someone I met through the blogging world so I'd definitely have to say Kerri! Duh! Biana is also someone I've met several times IRL now and I definitely consider her a great friend through blogging. Even though she lives in Boston and I live in Florida she probably knows more "secrets" about me than most of my non-blogger friends. I've gotten to meet so many wonderful ladies through blogging (seriously, if you're ever in Orlando let me know and I'll meet up!) but if I had to pick one I'm not currently friends with I'd probably have to say... Lauryn Evarts from The Skinny Confidential.  She's gorgeous, hilarious and I love her style. 

And that's all folks! Hope you had fun getting to learn a little more about me.

  1. People are the same about me when they meet me in person, I am "almost" 5'2. And I hate the generic comments as well, especially on Instagram. I post a picture of a homemade beauty solution for your face, someone said OH yum! I could eat this right now lol

  2. Oh my gosh, when the same person(s) follows, unfollows and follows again consistently it drives me crazy! That's an easy way for me NOT to follow someone!

  3. Hi Pam, thank you for sharing 20 facts about you and allowing us to get to know you better. I was also surprised when you said you we 5'1.

  4. I LOVE posts like this--they're always so fun to read! The follow/unfollow thing is so ridiculous. I just don't get it honestly! And I am with you on loving ANYTHING with cheese--cheetos are guilty pleasure! Happy Friday love!

  6. Love this! YES to anything with cheese and that cute little pup! I didn't realize he is a Morkie! I'm right there with you on that Insta crap too, so ridiculous. I also basically hide in the most barren places when we take pictures, I get so embarrassed!

  7. Haha! The hearts of men. I love it. This is a great post, and I loved getting to learn these fun and random facts about you. Have a great weekend!

    xoxo cheshire kat

  9. I love posts like this! The unfollow/follow thing sounds so weird, like it would take so much time to go back through and unfollow people? Yesss to The Royal We-- such a good book. I feel bad for admitting this but I've never seen The Princess Bride! I need to look for it on Netflix.

  10. Yes to all the champs and rose! And I really need to re-read The Royal We, I'm also waiting for them to make it into a movie. Give Novie a biiiiig hug from me <3

  11. Loved this post! Yes to champs and rose too!! :-) I also don't get the follow/unfollow thing. There are also people who I follow who never follow me. Guess I'm just not cool enough haha. Oh well! Anyway!! Have a fab weekend!! :-)

  12. I really really enjoyed this post! I would have guessed you are taller and never guessed you're self conscious. I also love cheeeese and collect shot glasses :) I can't wait to come back to Orlando as a blogger and meet all of you sometime! Have a nice weekend girlfriend!

  13. I have to say I was so surprised when we met and you were only 5'1!! I will never forget your first uber experience in Charleston - best story ever! I dont have any tattoos either so I'm with you on that! You know that I feel you on the follow/unfollow - such a pet peeve!! I'm so happy to have you in my life girl! Thank god for blogging! xo, Biana

  14. I am shocked that you are only 5'1. For some reason, I thought you were at least 5'10. You have legs for days!! I don't think I knew you had a doggie. Oh the follow/unfollow thing drives me crazy, so rude. The Princess Bride!! Such a great movie. Loved learning more about you. Have a great weekend pretty lady.

  15. Chasing cars is definitely an oldie but a goodie! Hope you have a fabulous Memorial Day Weekend!

  16. This was such a fun post to read- I had no idea you were 5'1!! And we really need to make an Orlando date- I'd love to meet up IRL! :) Have a great weekend and a fun trip for work!

  17. Love this, girl! I nodded my head yes to numbers 3 and 4! So MUCH yes! I can't stand the follow/unfollow crap, it's SO annoying. OH & the comment thing...I have to laugh, because on my graduation gift guide a girl commented "congrats on your upcoming graduation." Bahaha! Clearly didn't even read the title!
    I think people might be surprised that you're 5'1" because you have legs for days girl! #goals
    Hope you and little Novie have a good weekend!

  18. Your height doesn't surprise me for some reason. I just think of you as petite! Aw Novie sounds like a cutie. Yes to cheese and rose and mascara. Love things like this. Enjoy the weekend!

  19. I would have never guessed you are 5'1"! Not that I thought you were super tall, but just a little taller. :) Cheese anything gets me too, and spending the day reading is definitely one of my favorite things to do!

  20. I agree on the instagram follow then unfollow scenario. How annoying! I usually don't dig enough to notice but I know it's happened a few times. My fave snack has to be anything cheese related as well! Hope you get lots of R&R this weekend and some sunshine by the pool with a good book.

  21. I always forget how tiny you are until I see you in person! Glad to know I knew a fair amount of these and that follow/unfollow is so freaking annoying!

  22. This was SO fun to read, I may have to steal this idea! Yes to all the cheese - obviously being in Wisconsin I can't resist it either. I think it's so sweet that you and Kerri met through blogging and are now best friends. Always love learning more about you!

  23. The height thing always surprises me when I meet blog friends! You definitely don't look 5'1 in pictures!! Follow/unfollow is definitely one of my biggest pet peeves, too!! I can't even figure out what's authentic anymore.

  24. It was nice to read about you and get to know you better. I'm addicted to cheese too.
