Here goes nothing! 10 facts about me. I had so much fun writing this for you all! Connection is so important to me and I want you to be able to put real-life attributes to the pictures you see of me all over social media. I think it's way more fun that way, anyways! So, here are some things you may not know about me! Enjoy. :)
P.S. - I want to hear an interesting fact about you. Shoot me a message or comment below because I'd love to hear!
1. I live in Chicago (a.k.a. the best city ever!). 🏙🌆
I've lived here for almost 3 years now and moving to the Windy City was one of the best decisions of my life. I've met some of the greatest and closest people to me, explored the in's and out's of a gorgeous city and made countless memories to last a lifetime. I don't think I'll be leaving here anytime too soon!
2. I go to a Liberal Arts college and study Fashion Business/Public Relations. ✏️
I LOVE what I do! People ask me how I like going to school in a big city versus a typical "campus style" and my answer is always that I knew this is what I wanted. I come from a really small town, as in graduated-with-93-people small, and ever since I was a little girl I had a love for the city. When it came time to picking a college, I'm so incredibly thankful I had the opportunity to come here.
Studying at Columbia College has allowed me so many opportunities and opened doors that I never thought I'd come close to. With just a year and a half left, I can't help but think how FAST my time here has gone! It seems like yesterday I was entering my first class; so nervous and anxious. I love looking back and seeing how much I've grown, not only inside the classroom, but out. Thank you, Columbia, for showing me my passion and enriching it every single day.
3. I would much rather stay in and watch Netflix than go out. 💻✔️
Can I get an "AMEN!"?
I've never been much of a girl who loves the "party scene". I'm not lying when I say most of my memories at school have been of me and my girls staying in and laughing/crying/hiding over a movie we found deep into Netflix. You know what? I'm perfectly OK with that. I love the occasional let loose, dance all night, drink pretty drinks, kind of night, but I'm all over a big cuddle-sesh on the couch, too. :)
4. My favorite snack combo is Cheetos/Milk Duds. 😋
You know how they say that if your plate looks colorful, it looks healthy? Does this count, too? LOL
5. I am oddly obsessed with interior design apps. 📱
I love, love, love, love interior design. When I was little, I would draw rooms and put furniture in them. My best friend, Carlea, and I would rearrange my room almost every week (S/O to Carlea for putting up with that! HAHA). I would even buy things for my room (like a cheetah chair) at the age of 13. Now, I just put all of that creative energy into virtual rooms with virtual furniture and virtual money! We all have our favorite pass times, right?
6. I'm a hopeless romantic. ❤️
I love love.
I love star gazing, picnics in the park, drive-in movies, and being so goofy and silly only your significant other understands it. Find someone who makes you laugh until your belly hurts, looks at you like you're the most beautiful thing in the world, never stops reminding you why he/she loves you, never stops showing you how much he/she loves you, cares about the "little things", and find someone who never makes you stop smiling.
Because that's the kind of love we all deserve.
7. Running by the lake is a therapeutic outlet for me. 🏃🏼♀️
There's nothing like stomping my feet into the pavement while looking along the horizon of Lake Michigan. It's so beautiful in the Spring/Summer; flowers are beginning to bloom, trees are budding and the birds are chirping. I can't help but put on my "Lit" playlist and take off. Who's with me?!
8. You can find me watching Fixer Upper, Project Runway or Say Yes to the Dress on the daily. 💍🔨🔧
These shows have my HEART. I could binge for hours and never get bored. I'm obsessed!
9. I'll pick a scary movie over any other genre when scrolling through Netflix. 😱
I think it's the suspense that gets me every time! I love trying to solve the murder, the kidnapping, the crime scene, or whatever it may be. I kid you not when I say I binged an entire 3 season series of The Following in a week. NO SHAME!
PS - I highly recommend that show. It's one heck of a thriller!
10. Spring/Summer are my FAVORITE seasons. 🌸🌷🌈☀️🌧
