  4. Being a real adult scares me too and supposedly I am one. I'm still not convinced though. Blake Lively is so amazing. So pretty and just seems like a sweet person. I also HATE when I walk into a store and no one greets me. And then I get more upset when they greet the person who comes in five minutes after me. What?

    Autumn is definitely the BEST season ever! There's so much to love about it. So sweet that you have such a strong relationship with your mom! That would definitely be really awesome to have your own brand! Omg! I would love that!

    Loved reading your answers!

  5. My favorite shopping partner is my mom, too! :)
