Nominator's [Grace of Beauty's] Questions:
  1. When did you start your blog? I started this blog about a month ago after sharing a blog with my best friend for a few months. 
  2. If you could start all over in life, would you change anything? I wouldn't change many things. Perhaps I would study more in school and not befriend certain people. 
  3. What are the best five words that would describe you? Organized, stubborn, lazy, silly, compassionate. 
  4. Neutrals or bright colors? Depends. Probably neutrals because I prefer more classic looks.
  5. What inspired you to start your blog? Why? Other peoples' blogs inspire me all the time. Blogging is an outlet for my creativity. 
  6. What are three things you are grateful for? Food, family, friends. The three 'F's. 
  7. What is the latest trip you went on? I just returned from California a week ago. 
  8. How did you come up with your blog's name? I wanted my blog name to be an alliteration and contain my name. Mumbles was the only word I could think of that was somewhat synonymous with talking.  
  9. The latest beauty purchase? NYX lipgloss in 'Beige'. 
  10. Are an organized person? I used to come over to my friends' houses to clean their rooms for fun. Does that answer your question?
  11. Your favorite blogs [pick 3]? 'Milk Bubble Tea', 'The Dauphine', and 'From Roses'. 
My Nominations:
  1. What is the first thing you do when you get home from work/school?
