10 Things You Probably Don’t Know About Me

Let’s get a little more personal here! Sometimes I think I’m an open book, but in actuality there’s probably quite a bit you don’t know about me! So here it goes!

  1. I’m a HUGE introvert. A lot of people who watch my videos probably think that I’m an extrovert, outgoing and enjoy speaking in public. This couldn’t be any further from the truth! In person I am quiet, enjoy a ton of alone time and have a small circle of friends. I actually find it quite difficult to make new friends.
  2. I’m a problem finder. I can look at any situation and pick out all of the potential risks. Terrible, right? Well – a long with this I am also great at finding solutions! I like to know exactly what I am getting myself into, what might go wrong and how I can fix it if it does!
  3. My background is marketing – not makeup. Actually 5 years ago, the only makeup I wore was lipgloss from the drug store. I graduated from a college Public Relations program and have been employed in a Marketing role every since. It’s a huge passion of mine!
  4. I’m a yoga fanatic. I was introduced to yoga more recently so I am still developing my skills, but I enjoy a yoga routine daily. It helps to declutter my mind and set the tone for the day. Plus, who doesn’t love Yoga clothes? I am also a YogaClub box ambassador, grab your Yoga clothes at a HUGE DISCOUNT!
  5. I am working through post partum anxiety 5 years after giving birth to my son. You hear about Post Partum Depression, but you hardly every hear about Post Partum Anxiety, which is a whole new ball game. I am at a good place in my life where I am able to manage it, however it is a daily decision that must be made in order to survive. If you ever need someone to talk to, please feel free to reach out to me!
  6. I am married to my soulmate. No seriously, I know a lot of people think that. I am one of them. He is my complete opposite, but he gets me like nobody does. We’ve been through so much together, a ton of time a part (he’s military), moves, difficult pregnancies and everything in between. He’s my rock.
  7. My business is about more than makeup. Not only does it financially provide my family with what it needs, it brings me emotional stability. It is a creative outlet that allows me to refocus my thinking and do something positive with my time.
  8. I have no baby toenail. Yeah this is a weird one.
  9. I love to travel and hope that I always have the opportunity to! I’ve been to quite a few places in the last couple of years, including Australia, Jamaica, New Orleans, Chicago, Boston. I am set to travel to Punta Cana in a few months for the very first time! Explore the world while you can!
  10. I’m a hoarder and if it weren’t for my husband, you would absolutely see me on that TV show. I hate to throw anything out as I believe that everything has a purpose. It’s not that I need things in my life to be happy, it’s that I hate to waste. I am learning to let go these days by giving more to others who can use it (versus throwing things in the trash, which I simply cannot do).

So that’s basically me in a nutshell – although I’d like to think I am so much more! Want to connect on FB? Send me a friend request!
