Endless Bliss | Happy Lifestyle Blog: Hello World, This is Me + Ultimate Cash Giveaway! (CLOSED)

Hello World, This is Me + Ultimate Cash Giveaway! (CLOSED)

I was recently tagged by Allison to share 20 facts about me and also tagged by Erica for the Liebster Award, which I don't qualify for (and neither did she haha), but I'm going to answer all of her lovely questions anyway. 

I guess it would ironic for me to say that I haven't talked about myself on my blog in a long time, but in a sense, it's kind of true. When I compare my day-to-day life to what I blog about, y'all are only getting part of the story. If I took y'all through a typical day with me, you would probably fall asleep about halfway through. Most of my day consists of me sitting at a computer, either at work or at home (with the combo of blogging and NaNoWriMo this month, I feel like I'm always glued to my screen!). 

I say all that to say, I'm excited to share 20 random facts about myself with all of my lovely readers!

1// Back when MySpace was a thing in high school, I used to run a separate MySpace page for contests called Heels Over Head Contests, inspired by Boys Like Girls, who I was obsessed with at the time. It actually had quite a few entries and voters. (I wasn't alone in doing this, okay? Tons of people had these contest sites!)

2// I've never broken a bone or had the chicken pox.

3// When I was in elementary school, I had a beta fish named Bob. He died after just 6 months, and he received a proper toilet bowl funeral. 

4// I could eat sushi every single day of my life. Yum! (Is it morbid for me to mention this after talking about my fish?)

5// I'm a not-so secret fangirl at best. I'm obsessed with all things Harry Potter and Supernatural, and I'm not ashamed. In January, I'll be going to Houston for Supernatural Con, and I don't know how I'm going to be able to control myself when I meet Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki and Misha Collins. My heart rate went up just thinking about it. 

6// My happy place is in the Mediterranean Sea outside of Rome.

7// I shouldn't be allowed to meet famous (or even semi-famous) people. With Shreveport becoming known as the "Hollywood of the South," I've run into famous people randomly. Amber Tamblyn, Stephen Lang, Treat Williams and a few others I can't think of right now. Also, to me, authors are celebrities, so meeting them is a thrill (#bookworm). Not to mention meeting James and Oliver Phelps in Dallas. I'm always awkward around famous people. I'm awkward in general, but it's times a million when I'm meeting someone well-known. I get tongue-tied. I can't stop smiling. I can't control my body or the words that come out of my mouth. It's not pretty. Tell me they're just people all you want, but it doesn't help. Apologizing in advance to everyone I meet at Supernatural Con.

8// My real life job is working as a sales coordinator at a dual-brand hotel. I love my co-workers, and everyday is pretty unpredictable. Working in hospitality really makes you appreciate good service everywhere you go. Another random tidbit: I was the first promotion in the hotel. We're a new hotel that opened in 2012, and I was part of the opening team, but I was working front desk. After 8 months, I was given the opportunity to get my first ever promotion, and I jumped at the chance. 

9// I take Halloween costumes very seriously. This year, I dressed up as Mr. T.

10// When I was younger, I used to think I was supposed to pee standing up. Mind you, I was living with just my dad and my brother at the time. 

11// I used to have a My-Size Barbie. Never got a Barbie Jeep though. Still waiting... (And yes, I did have my birthday at Burger King)



12// The first concert I ever went to was a Switchfoot concert at the House of Blues in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. One of the opening bands was The Format, and I fell in love with them. And yes, I did get to meet them. And yes, I do listen to fun. too. 

13// I love when the power goes out. All the disappointments of everything in the fridge and freezer pushed aside, I just like the idea of living, albeit temporarily, without power (I don't know that I could actually survive long-term without it). When I was younger, anytime the power would go out, my siblings and I would play board games together in the candlelight, so when it goes out now, I expect people to just know to break out the board games and play them with me.

14// I took my first step at 7 months old, and it was documented (apparently on a Saturday?).



15// I'm black and Filipino, and every day, I'm sad that I never learned to speak Tagalog. Perhaps there's still time?

16// I call all dogs 'puppies,' and I'm obsessed with mine. World, this is Molly and Farah. Molly and Farah, this is the world.

Molly's the little one being crushed. Farah is the one crushing her.


17// I have an obsessive personality. Sometimes, I get these ideas in my head that I just can't shake, so I'll dedicate a few weeks or a few months to it before I move on to the next obsession. Right now, I'm obsessed with buying records. On the day I found out Blogcation was canceled, I spent a little bit of the money I had been saving up for it on a record players and some records. Now I can't stop buying them.

18// I LOVE MOSCATO! My new favorite is Astoria Lounge Sparkling Moscato. It's so delicious.

19// Talents I wish I had: singing, dancing, painting, public speaking, playing piano

20// I love free things: free samples, chotskies, hand-me-downs. Even if I don't need them, I want them, and I'll take them, and I'll be so happy about them. Give me all the free things!


And Erica's questions:
If you could up and go to anywhere in the world for the rest of the day, where would you go, who be your travel buddy, and what would you see/do there?
I would go to Australia with my sister, Bre. I've been talking for years about how I want to go to Australia, but it seems like it's the most expensive country/continent to travel to! I would hang out with some kangaroos and koalas, learn to surf and find a job, because I'd never leave!

You’ve just had an insanely ridiculously tiring and stressful day at school/work/blogging in your pajamas with hot tea and macarons all day. Top 3 ways to de-stress?
1. Wine
2. Puppy cuddles
3. Netflix

Who do you think are the two most influential (guy and girl!) people in the world today?
Girl: I'd have to say Emma Watson. I love that she's using her fame to educate people on feminism. She's always so poised and beautiful and is such an amazing inspiration to everyone today.
Guy: Is it sad that I can't think of anyone besides Emma Watson right now? 

What song best fits your personality?
Right now - "Be Okay" by Oh Honey


If you could re-name yourself today, what would it be?
I can't imagine being named anything but Tiffany Khyla White, but if I could change my name to Taylor Swift and actually be Taylor Swift, then I would be okay with that. 

Best blogging tip you’ve ever received?
Install Disqus. Disqus has literally changed my blogging game. 

The most popular 3 websites in your computer history?
This month? NaNoWriMo, Blogger, and Twitter

Go-to piece(s) in your wardrobe right now?
Socks, sweaters, and fleece leggings. Baby, it's cold outside.

What are you most excited for right now?
FRIENDSGIVING! I can't wait to have some of my favorite people in one place. 

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever gotten?
Not advice, but one of my favorite quotes: "I don't care what you think about me. I don't think about you at all." I just love that quote by CoCo Chanel so much because it pretty much embodies how I want to think. I don't want to think or care about what people think about me because what matters is how I feel about myself.

  3. My sisters and I do the same thing when the power goes out. It usually happens at least once or twice every year, but we always bust out the candles and play board games all night with our parents.



    And all dogs are puppies. All of them, no matter how big or old.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I wanted a Barbie jeep too! My dad got me all these Barbie dolls and their houses but never the jeep :(

    ReplyDelete
  7. Your progression from #3 to #4...hahaha. I could definitely eat sushi every day too though! :]

    ReplyDelete
  8. As lame as this may sound I would totally pay off my student loans. I feel so stressed about them and would love to be able to catch up and then buy ALL THE THINGS guilt free.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I'd buy a pair of Frye boots. Then I'd tell my husband I only won $200 ;)

    ReplyDelete
  10. I would do the same thing! I feel like they're just a burden, and I want them gone!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Haha I guess my fish made me think of sushi? I don't even know. I love sushi so much!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Silly dads. They should have known that a Barbie jeep was the key to our happiness!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Thanks so much for visiting, Sarah! I always thought it was weird that I never got chicken pox, so I'm glad there's other people that understand! I hope I don't get it as an adult though. Yikes! And I'm glad you understand my love for vinyl! I'm addicted.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Yay! I'm happy you enjoyed it. I still want that Barbie jeep though...hahaha.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Aw! That's so awesome. It's the perfect time to play games and bond. I'm so happy you agree on the puppy/dog thing. I've been trying to explain it to my boyfriend, but he just refuses to cooperate.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yay! I'm glad you did, Kimberly. My mom speaks Tagalog, but she never taught me or any of my siblings. I wish she had.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Blogcation is cancelled? Aww... I'm so sorry to hear that :(

    ReplyDelete
  18. Yea! I was so sad about it when I found out. Apparently a bunch of the speakers cancelled.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Well, I would definitely put that towards my loans. I'm not sure how, but I would make that happen.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Same here! I can't wait for the day that I'm officially out of debt!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I just found out Allegiant will be flying from Omaha where my sis lives to St. Pete right by where we live so I would buy her a couple of plane tickets so she could come just for fun!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hi! I'd love to buy a plane ticket! Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Me too! I would love to buy a ticket to anywhere!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I had to respond so late to this because it's so absolutely awesome and I needed to sit down and reply to each and every point.
    So.
    I've never broken a bone or had the chicken pox either.
    My happy place is in the Mediterranean Sea outside of Spain. So just across the sea...
    Your Mr. T Halloween costume is the best Halloween costume I've ever seen ever.
    I've never had a Barbie jeep either girl...one day...
    I LOVE WHEN THE POWER GOES OUT.
    I call all cats kitties. Same as puppies, right?
    I'm on the hunt for a record player! I snagged a few vintage classical records and just need a player now...also Blogcation got cancelled??? WHAT???
    I LOVE MOSCATO TOO. UGH IT'S PERFECT! I love moscato in cute little individual bottles...it's the best.
    I always love free things.
    Australia??? SO COOL. Have you talked to Shane about it?
    Wine - yes. Puppy cuddles - yes. Netflix - yes.
    That Oh Honey song is now on my top ten favorite songs of the week. Thank you for sharing it!!
    That CoCo Chanel quote is really fantastic.
    And of course you watch Scandal. You're a ridiculously smart girl who knows good television.

    And if I won the cash...good camera/video equipment. Because I feel some blog experiments coming on.

  25. - Our happy places are in the same, but different places! The Mediterranean Sea is so beautiful. I'll have to go visit the other side to see your happy place.

    - It was so fun drawing on my facial hair. We had a contest at work, and I was sad I didn't win, but I still had a blast dressing up.

    - I still want a Barbie Jeep for real.

    - I have a Crosley record player that I got from a store called 2nd & Charles, but I know they sell them on Amazon! This is the one I got: http://www.amazon.com/Crosley-CR8005A-BK-Cruiser-Portable-Turntable/dp/B008F8DGJQ/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1416956285&sr=8-2&keywords=crosley+record+player&pebp=1416956291675

    And yes, I was so sad when Blogcation got cancelled. Apparently a lot of the speakers backed out last minute. So rude.


    - I've been following Shane's Aussie adventures, and she's done nothing to stop my obsession. She makes Australia sound so fun, and I want to go even more now!


    - So happy you love the Oh Honey song! I heard it on a Spotify playlist and decided I loved it.

    ReplyDelete
  26. - RIGHT! I'm thinking we should create Blogcation: The Mediterranean edition?
    - Wait wait wait. You DREW all of that on??? With WHAT? And I need to see who beat you out. Pics or it didn't happen on this one.
    - Me too. How about I ship you a jeep instead of a Christmas card for that bloggy group??
    - That's so AWESOME. Looking it up now...
    - Ugh how/why?!? Who backed out?
    - Shane, if you're reading this, Tiff and I want in. Blogcation in Australia is also valid.
    - I LOVE it. Spotify discovery playlists are so fantastic, and I think most of the new music I've fallen in love with over the past six months has all been from that! (Aside from 1989...that explains itself).

    ReplyDelete
  27. -I've never broken a bone but I did have chicken pox. I was young though so I don't remember it at all. I've never had stitches either.

    -I couldn't imagine what I'd do if I met a celebrity especially if it was a cast member from Psych or Kristen Bell
    -Did Erin ever actually comment on Blogcation being canceled? I've kinda stopped reading her blog because of the whole situation. I wanted to meet you! :(
    -Thank you for helping me find another amazing song! I feel like we like a lot of the same music

    ReplyDelete
  28. Omg. I don't know what I would do if I met Kristen Bell. No words for how much I love that girl. I have no idea if Erin said anything public about it being canceled. I haven't been keeping up with her blog either. So happy you like the song!! I love sharing music.

  29. Hannah @ Clean Eating Veggie GDecember 3, 2014 at 9:10 AM

    I'd buy a new computer!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Me too! I could certainly use one. Mine is so old.

    ReplyDelete
  31. - Yes! I'm definitely down with that idea. Mediterranean Sea, here we come!


    - Oh yes, I did. I used Mary Kay liquid eyeliner. It was a blast to get off.


    - I think that sounds perfect. Jeeps are so much better than Christmas cards, obvs.


    - I have no idea who backed out, but I'm pissed at that! Grrr


    - Blogcation in Australia is so valid! I was looking up prices to travel there, and I got so depressed. Maybe in 2016? That's how long it'll take me to save up. Yikes!

    ReplyDelete
  32. That's awesome! You could definitely get some good stuff if you win the money. Good luck!

    ReplyDelete
  33. A new lens for my camera

    ReplyDelete
  34. I would pay off my bills from Christmas.

    ReplyDelete
  35. That's so smart. I need to do that too.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'd like to say that I'd buy something fun like a new laptop or camera, but I'd probably use the money to pay off some of my bills and loans.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Same here! It would feel so good to get some of that debt paid off!
