9 Things About Me

It’s been a long time since I’ve done anything for some of the newer readers, and since a lot has changed in the past 9-10 months I figured it would be a good time to share a bit more with you guys! For those of you who have been around for a bit, I’m going to share some quirky facts about myself, too. After all – for those that know me in person it’s the quirky things that really make me who I am!

1. How did you end up in New York City and what are you doing there?

It’s been quite the journey: 4 states and 5 major cities later I somehow ended up in the Big Apple. I grew up in Texas originally and went to school there but worked in Denver for a year and a half traveling to San Francisco regularly, moved back to Dallas.. then moved to Chicago to work for Groupon and then finally moved to New York to work for Ideel (a flash fashion site) where I manage their e-mail and promotions! My blog is something I do and keep up with completely on the side of my day-to-day life.

2. What’s your go-to outfit?

A white or black blouse, pair of shorts and heels (the photo above is one of my all time favorite outfits!)

3. Your happy song is

Fleetwood Mac / Dreams on a normal day… Taylor Swift / Blank Space on a great day

4. Who’s your girl crush?

Mila Kunis. She’s gorgeous, funny, super cool and did I mention just really cool? Closely followed by Jamie Chung because she’s just the cutest.

5. Favorite purchase of all time

My Alexander Wang Rocco duffle a few years back after a trip to New York City – still my favorite bag to this day

6. You’re a sucker for…

Champagne, stripes, rooftops, grilled octopus, black everything, and a pretty sunset

7. Tell us something that most people don’t know about you

I try to make a sentimental purchase when big life events happen. Promotions, moves, big milestones – I like to tie them to something that will remind me of it down the road. Most recently was this pair of shoes for my 28th birthday (on sale, of course!)

8. What really freaks you out?

Sharks and those aquariums that surround you. Can’t even look at sharks on a TV screen thanks to my visual imagination and I can’t stand the idea of being surrounded by sea animals even if there’s glass between us… no thanks.

9. Best movie you’ve seen recently

That’s easy because I haven’t been to one in ages, but just saw Inside Out. It’s my favorite Pixar movie since “Up” (which is a must if you haven’t seen it).

Feel free to leave any comments with any other things you’re curious about!
