Five Things and Floral

This past Monday I was tagged by the lovely Miss Reid over at The Fashion Blender for another 5 things about me post.

And even though I participated in this a few weeks ago… I just couldn’t resist sharing some more fun facts with you all!

1. I’m a math nerd. Remember how there was always that one token kid in every math class that finished their test first? Well, I was that kid. And lucky for me, I was blessed with a career that blends my love of fashion and math (I know, strange combination, but that’s real life people).

2. Country music is my jam. Give me Luke Bryan, a pick up truck, and summer nights and I’m the happiest girl in the world.

3. I’m obsessed with Bride Friday on TLC. I would rather sit at home eating a homemade pizza watching Say Yes To The Dress than going out on a Friday. It’s a problem. Not to worry, the boyfriend knows about this obsession (at least I think he does), and I’ve made it very clear that the obsession stems from how beautiful I think bridal gowns are. And, let’s be real, how ridiculous some of those people can be.

4. I want a goldendoodle puppy more than almost anything else right now. What’s holding me back? Well two things, my roommate would kill me and I think it would just be mean to keep a dog the size of a large goldendoodle locked up in an apartment all day. So I will wait… until I have a house!

5. My two go to accessories are belts and scarves. Getting ready for church this past Sunday was a struggle for me because I moved all of my belts and most of my scarves to my new apartment (praise! I’m almost completely moved in) so I didn’t know what to wear!

Speaking of accessories… here’s a quick outfit post of how I combine the two for spring!

Five Things

Well… long time no see. My apologies… this past week has been busy busy busy! Mainly I just took a mini weekend vacation and came back to rainy weather and work – which is a horrible combination for outfit photos…

Yesterday I was tagged by the lovely Katie over at Style Diary in the Five things about me tag! (WOOHOO it’s my first tag!)

So here are a few fun facts that you might not know about little old me!

Five Things 4

1. My favorite color is red and one of my favorite ways to wear it is on my nails. I try to keep my nails painted because I love adding a random pop of color and because if I don’t I have a nasty habit of biting my nails SO GROSS!  While I do love mints, blues, and pinks my go to shade is OPI’s Color So Hot It Berns.

2. My favorite book/movie series is Harry Potter. And I’ve got two different phone covers to prove it! HP is followed by a very long list of super silly romcoms like She’s the Man, Step Up!, Life As We Know It, and She’s All That. I know, I know- I’ve got the best taste in movies… I just can’t figure out why I don’t ever get to pick the movies I watch with friends. O well, I also love to watch crime shows- Criminal Minds is my current fav!

3. I’m obsessed with sun glasses. Seriously, it’s a problem. There are over 15 pairs in my car… that of course doesn’t include the ones in my apartment.  Check out one of my very first blog posts about this love here! Way back then I only had 7 measly pairs… please pray for me.

4. I’ve made my church friends my best friends. Growing up I was always told to do just that and I’m proud to say that as I’ve gotten older I’ve stuck to that. The churches I’ve been blessed to be a part of over the years have brought so many significant people into my life and I could not be more thankful for each and every one of those relationships.

5. Sometimes when I’m feeling really crafty I bust out my sewing machines for little projects. I’ve conquered pillows in the past and since I will be moving into a new apartment soon I believe I will take a stab at some curtains! Wish me luck! Check out a few things I created for one of my classes in college!
