I was asked to come up with a do-over moment for life by Frigidaire and truly, it was insightful to sit back and think about what I'd change about my life if given the opportunity. There's a quote that I have on my facebook wall of fame that sums up my existence, lol, so I definitely have some do-over moments as I'm sure we all do:
You know those moments where you wished you'd picked door #2 instead? My whole life feels like that....
That quote above and the Stacie Orrico song "There's Gotta Be More" have always been my anthems because I feel like I am always a day late and a dollar short to many things or choose wrong/bad timing.
There's a lot that I'd change, but the biggest one I think is that I would have probably put a stop to my journalism degree at UMiami (maybe just gone my freshman year so that I could have met the good friends that I interacted with and love) and instead pursued a career in makeup artistry as it is the one thing that I've always had an interest in and still keeps my attention (which is notoriously hard, let me tell ya). There's nothing keeping me from doing it now, but I wouldn't be saddled with $50,000 in student loan debt had I chosen it ages ago!
Some looks that I've done on myself and others that I like:
I've always found it to be fun and have been using my friends/family as models since I was about 11 so WHY didn't I consider that as my calling? It never even crossed my mind to pursue it as a career, so that's my "do over" moment.
The Frigidaire Gallery™Dishwasher gets dishes fully cleaned the first time, so there are no dish do-overs. Nearly half of adults admit to re-washing and/or re-drying dishes after the dishwasher cycle has been completed. To prevent dishwasher do-overs, Frigidaire® is stepping in with its new Gallery® Dishwasher featuring the OrbitCleanTM Wash Arm, ensuring dishes are cleaned right the first time.
At least with Frigidaire one needn't start over!

What would you change in your life if you could go back and tweak the hands of fate???
