Meet Lovely Little Things

We'd like for you guys to meet...

We've been getting to know Jess through her blog for the past couple of months now and we absolutely think that she's great...and you guys know how we like to share GREAT things. This time instead of it being the latest thing in beauty or the "it" fashion trend of the moment, this "great" thing comes in a five foot package of a spunky and sweet college student from Tampa, Florida. To get you started on your quest to get to know all of the lovely little things about Jessica, we asked her to answer ten questions.  Hopefully this piques your interest and you'll go over and pay Jessica a visit at her blog...please show her some love from Her Late Night Cravings!

What made you want to start blogging?
I was Googling how to get volume at my roots (random, I know) and I stumbled on The Small Things Blog. That led me to her sister’s blog, From My Grey Desk, which I absolutely loved. I realized that every post she wrote I could relate to, and I wanted people to be inspired by me, how I was inspired by Lauren.

What do you enjoy the most about blogging?
Hands down the relationships that I’ve built! Coming into blogging, I never would have thought that I would meet people that I would consider friends. I definitely didn’t think I’d have a blog BFF either…love you Meg! ;) I also love the fact that blogging has busted me out of my comfort zone and helped me to grow as a person. I try new things, I’m not scared to talk to people I don’t know anymore…it’s great!

Have you ever met any other fellow bloggers?
Not YET. And I emphasize the yet! I'm planning on meeting up with Candice from Teatime Thoughts sometime in April...I couldn't be more excited :)

Name 5 lovely little things that you're currently loving.
 One. The fact that I am graduating from college in less than a month...AHHHH!
 Two. I love the Florida sunshine and that I can wear cute dresses every day now :) I'm so adding this one to my "To Buy" list:
Three. The Hunger Games...but who isn't loving that?
 Four. Essie's new Navigate Her of each please :)
Five. I'm definitely loving my new iPhone case!
Where there is Love there is Life iPhone Case

Describe your ideal way to spend a Saturday & tell us what you'd be wearing.
Let’s see. I’d sleep in until about 9. Then sit on my porch and drink my coffee (a must) while getting lost in a good book. I’d hit the gym (I love working out) and then meet my boyfriend for a picnic lunch. From there we’d go kayaking or mountain biking. Then I’d end it with a beach bonfire with mine & Adam’s (my boyfriend) whole group of friends. I probably wouldn’t look the cutest as far as an outfit goes until the bonfire – which I would probably wear this to:
simply everyday

If you moved from the Tampa area & could pick any other city in the US to put down roots, where would it be & why? 
I love, love, love Tampa but after reading so many blogs about San Diego (especially Tammy’s) I seriously want to live there! The scenery is gorgeous (beaches…yes, please!) and there just seems to be so much to do. Everyone that lives there is so passionate about it and they take a lot of pride in their city – I like that.

What is your favorite makeup brand?
To be honest, I’m not a huge make up wearer. I’m a mascara (Covergirl Professional Super Thick Lash) & lip balm (Maybelline Baby Lips) kinda girl. When I do go all out and do my make up, though, MAC is my go-to brand. Probably because that’s what my best friend uses and she’s the one who taught me how to do make up ;)

Where is your favorite place to shop?
If I’m on a budget Target or Forever 21. Otherwise, Loft. I absolutely adore the fact that they have petite clothes. I’m 5’ so I have the hardest time finding clothes that aren’t too long for me! I'm recently getting into Zara and J Crew, also...thank you fashion bloggers ;)

What is your favorite trend for this spring/summer?
MINT MINT MINT! And I’m all about the statement necklace thing, too!

If you could pick any actress to play you in a movie, who would you pick?
Oh this is a hard one! I’d have to say Rachel McAdams. She is classy & fabulous. Not to mention absolutely gorgeous. I wouldn’t mind if she was pretending to be me ;)
