I was tagged in a "get to know you" kind of post by my friend, Michelle [check out her new blog HERE -- she's amazing]. Now, I know my blog is all about fashion, but I know I'm curious and I like to know what makes the fashion bloggers I follow them. So, feel free to read on and get to know me better or skip this and come back tomorrow for my next fashion-related post. Here are the questions Michelle asked me:

What is your favorite beauty product and/or routine?
I have three products that I'm obsessed with and can't leave the house without:

I cannot live without MAC's Mineralize Skinfinish Natural. I wear the color Light Plus. I have oilier skin than it is dry, so a powdered product works best for my skin type.

I have to have chapstick! HAVE TO! My favorite is Cherry Natural Ice. I love my chapsticks to have SPF and for them to have Mentholatum.

I feel like curling your lashes is an instant wake-me-up and fix-me-up! My favorite eyelash curler I've found is the Shu Uemura eyelash curler
. I've had mine for years and it is still working really well.

What is your most favorite place that you have visited in the world and why? 
I've been on several fun trips.  My parents always have stressed the importance of traveling and seeing the world and they have made it possible for me to visit a lot of really cool and interesting places.  I've been across the world a few times, been to a couple exotic places but my very favorite place to go is here, in Utah, Lake Powell.  Hands down the best trip, the most looked forward to trip and the funnest.  If you haven't been, you need to!!  I'm really lucky to have done all the traveling I've done!

Why do you blog? and what inspires you to keep blogging?
I started my blog because I couldn't find a fashion blog that I felt like was completely my style.  Then I realized, I probably wasn't the only one feeling like that.  So I started The Inclined in hopes of showing people that outfits can be simple and still be interesting; wearable and still great.

What is the quality that you love best about your significant other, and why?
I love that Danny is so compassionate.  His love for others that have less than him is like no one else I've ever met.  It's really inspiring.  I also love his sense of humor and his musical ability [check that out HERE!].

Guilty pleasures??
Oh, gosh... I have so many!!  I love reality TV.  Kardashian anything and Real Housewives of CA [OC and Beverly Hills] are my favorites.  I love celebrity gossip.

What physical feature do you love most about yourself and why?--Don't be afraid to gloat a little! Embrace what you have and love it :)
... Sheesh.
I suppose my favorite feature is my hair or my height.  I love having long hair.  I don't see myself cutting it off ever.  And being tall is so much better than being short [sorry, shrimps!]!  Though clothes shopping can be difficult, the benefits outweigh the disadvantages ten fold!

Take a quick picture of what you are wearing -- and tell us what you love about your outfit!
Well, my phone's dead and no camera with me.  But here's a Photo Booth picture of my outfit. 

Today was a run-out-the-door-as-fast-as-you-can kind of day.  I'm wearing my grey Zara faux leather sleeve tee [old], black Windsor jeggings, black Old Navy flip flops and a pony tail to top it all off!  No time for jewelry or anything.

Do you cook? If so, share your favorite recipe! (this is selfish of me, but I need some good new recipes ;)
I don't cook.  But, man! Can I bake!  Here is my favorite cookie recipe that makes the best dough!

1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
Less than 1/4 cup shortening
2/3 cup butter
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp salt
1 handful of oats
A little less than 3 cups flour

Mix first four ingredients [make sure butter is soft, NOT MELTED!].  Add eggs and vanilla, mix.  Put first two cups of flour in mixer, but before mixing, add other dry ingredients.  Mix.  Add last cup of flour until it seems the right doughy consistency.  Add chocolate chips if you'd like [I hate them, so I take out my portion of dough and then add them].  Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes [yeah right - just eat the dough].


Now that you know about me, tell me about YOU!
