Hey y’all! Since today is my 23rd birthday, I thought it would be fun to share a little about myself (especially those of you who are new readers)! One of my blogger friends (@alexaelizabeth_) did this and I loved it! I always find it interesting just reading fun facts about people haha.. plus I think it makes it easier to connect with someone when they share things about their personal life!
1. Favorite Show:
Hands down, the Office.. it’s one of those shows that I can watch over and over and never get tired of!
2. Fast Food:
People are probably going to judge me for this one, but Taco Bell all the way!
3. College life:
I went to school in Kentucky and majored in Marketing (my concentration was actually in social media). I was also a member of Chi Omega sorority. I graduated last year and still miss it so much!
I’m an only child. I always get asked if I hate it, but it doesn’t bother me at all! I grew up with a ton of cousins, so I always had someone to play with.. and now that I’m older, I’m very close to my parents.
5. Meaning behind my blog name:
Back in 2015, when I was building my website, I was very preppy. But regardless of what I was wearing, pearls and curled hair were apart of my “signature” look. I wanted to make sure that even once my style evolved (which it definitely has) I could still relate to the name.
6. Favorite place I’ve travelled:
This will probably come as no shock to you, but LA (I’m even trying to plan another trip back!) I actually have a goal to live there at some point in my 20’s!
So I’m almost convinced I’m the only person without a pet, but I have wanted a Husky for years. I would love to have one eventually!
8. Order at Starbucks:
This changes a little bit depending on the season, so in the summer I pretty much only drink Mango Black Tea Lemonades. In the fall, I drink PSL’s. Any other time, I’ll either order an iced caramel Macchiato or an iced caramel coffee.
9. Favorite thing to do when bored:
Youtube.. it’s a serious guilty pleasure of mine. There are several youtubers I keep up with and watch consistently.
10. Weird phobias:
Ladybugs. I hate them so much. Funny story, one actually landed on me in bed one night while I was on my laptop. It scared me so bad that I threw my laptop and it busted my lip.
11. Favorite places to shop:
Nordstrom is always my go-to because I can find everything, but I also really love ASOS and Revolve.
12. Favorite flowers:
Pink peonies, I would have them all over the house if I could!
13. Celebrity crush:
Harry Styles! I am going to his concert next year and I can assure you I am not okay.
14. When I was younger:
I took acting classes and workshops when I was 12. I was very into it. My acting teacher was even on All My Children back in the day. Somewhere out there is a VHS tape of me doing an improv scene about Jesse McCartney.. gold.
15. Place I want to travel to:
London. I have had a fascination with London since I was about 10 years old. I had plans to go after I graduated high school and again to study abroad in college, but both times fell through.
16. Broken bones:
In 8th grade, I got in a tubing accident while I was at the lake with some of my friends. When we fell off the tube, my face slammed into the back of her head and I broke my nose. I ended up having to have surgery to correct the damage, so now I jokingly tell people I had a nose job haha
17. My humor:
I speak sarcasm like a second language. If you can keep up, props to you haha
18. Middle name:
My middle name (which you probably already know if you follow me on Insta) is Lorraine. I hated my first name growing up and wanted people to call me Lorraine. That never worked lol
19. My personality:
I like to think of myself as an introverted extrovert. Growing up I was always very dramatic (still am to be fair) and had to be the center of attention. I lived to make people laugh. After I graduated high school, I became very awkward and struggled to express my personality to others. It’s still something I’m trying to overcome.
20. My current relationship:
21. Fav junk food:
Sour gummy worms. Unhealthy obsession.. like you have no idea.
22. My hair:
I dyed my hair dark brown my junior year of high school because I was tired of being a blonde. For whatever reason, I kept it for 2 years. I try to forget about it.
23. Funny story:
I can’t even make this up, but when I was a sophomore in college, I dragged my parents to a dog meet and greet. You’re probably wondering what the heck that is… and it’s exactly what it sounds like haha It was for this instafamous dog – @tunameltsmyheart
