20 Things About Me

I've been seeing these lists on other blogs. I'm always interested to learn more about others so I figured I'd do one too!

1. I absolutely LOVE comedy. Two of my favorite comedians (hands down #1 favorites) are Chelsea Handler and Kathy Griffin. I've been fortunate to see both of these ladies live and I enjoyed every minute of the show!

2. I love to cook. I'm not a gourmet chef by any means but I get better each time. I also like to bake too. You can always find me in the kitchen preparing something new or flipping through a cookbook. My sweet treat specialities are muffins, cupcakes, brownies, and cookies. I'm not as great at cakes, but I'll get there!

3. I'm a southern girl. I grew up in North Carolina. I haven't been back in 5 years now but I still miss it sometimes! In August, I'll have lived in New York City for 6 years. Time flies!

4. I'm a total clothes horse. I love new shoes and clothes and frequently purchase both. There's nothing like a new outfit to put a smile on my face.

5. I work for a national magazine. I just started the job close to a month ago. It's a completely different field for me but I'm enjoying it!

6. I'm not a huge reader. I love to read celebrity gossip but that's it.

7. I have a dog named Colby. She's a Bichon Frise and will be 14 in July. I love her so much!

8. I'm not a mom blogger, which is pretty rare these days.

9. I'll be 24 in September. Then in October is my boyfriend and I's 5 year anniversary!

10. Before I started blogging I was an avid sweepstaker. I entered contests actively from 2004-2009. I won a 2007 Volvo XC-90 SUV from a McDonald's Pirates of the Caribbean contest back in 2006. I used the money from selling the car for a year of tutition for school.

11. I can't remember the last time that I didn't polish my nails. You'll never see me without nailpolish. The minute I take off the old, chipped coat, I put on a new fresh coat. I'd say I haven't had bare nails in about 10 years.

12. I love to travel. I've been to many parts of the Caribbean. I'd love to see Europe next, and of course some domestic travel too!

13. Music is my everything. The radio is constantly playing in my house and I take my iPod with me whenever I use the subway or bus.

14. I love a good deal. I'm constantly scouring Groupon or Living Social for a money-saving deal.

15. I'm a reality-show junkie. The Kardashians, Ice Loves Coco, and The Real Housewives of NJ are some of my favorite guilty pleasure shows.

16. I am not registered to vote.

17. I've been dying my hair since middle school. My hair has been every shade of blonde, brown, and red. I've never dyed my hair black though.

18. I'm an only child.

19. I can do accents pretty well. English is the one I can do the best.

20. I used to be a little bit into theater. I took a drama workshop one summer and I was in drama my senior year of high school.

Hope you enjoyed reading!
