I hope everyone had a successful Cyber Monday! In honor of my 25th birthday today (yikes!) I thought I’d share with you guys 25 facts about me that you might not know:
1. I absolutely love to read! I’ll read almost anything, but I prefer fiction, especially thrillers and crime novels. 2. My favorite color is grey, followed closely by the color pink. 3. Chocolate & peanut butter are one of my favorite combinations 4. My natural hair color is auburn 5. On the very first lottery ticket I ever bought (on my 18th birthday) I won $200 6. I buy a lot of my designer items brand new/gently used from sites like eBay or ThredUp 7. I am so thankful I was recently able to travel to France for the first time. I would love to check Italy off of my list next. 8. I could eat sushi all day, every day 9. I am the oldest of five children; I have two sisters and two brothers, and D and I also want a large family someday 10. I was recently accepted into Boston University to finish a degree in Biomedical science 11. I love milkshakes, they are one of my guilty pleasures 12. I am actually terrified of being in front of the camera! Its a fear I am constantly learning how to overcome, especially with blogging. 13. We are planning to move to North Carolina in the next three years to buy a home 14. I am mostly French, Irish, and English descent. I have family all over the world, many whom I have never met before. 15. I am a huge advocate for women and learning how to love yourself. More on that here and here 16. Baking is one of my passions! I always tell people that someday I’m going to run my own home bakery and fashion blog alongside it. 17. I was reading a book on my way up to Maine, and when I opened the window to flick a bug out I accidentally threw my book out of the car and onto the highway (My husband was kind enough to stop at Target so I could buy a new one!) 18.

Here’s to being twenty-five!
