It’s no secret that I’m probably one of the most “low maintenance” kind of girls out there. I don’t spend HOURS getting ready, I can get ready in 10 minutes or less-no joke-I LOVE my sleep! Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE fashion, trends, and all that jazz…but I’d like to think I have a little more “depth” than worrying about what I’m going to wear everyday! I want to attract clients that are like me, that “get” me, that want to hang out with me for a few hours and let me take their pictures. <insert cheesy smile> If you know me in what I like to call “real life”, you’d know most of this, but for those of you that haven’t met me YET….let me tell you a little bit more about myself! You know, a few of my favorite things-which are in no particular order! !
LOL: otherwise known as Laughing out Loud…but just not ANY laugh….the laugh so hard your belly muscles hurt. The kind of laugh that heals the soul, where you are on the verge of peeing in your pants….. THAT kind of laugh!
Bath and Body Works: I LOOOVE me some smelly good lotions and sprays. I may have a problem, but I stalk pile and hoard it!My favorite smells: coconut, country apple and lemon vanilla
BURT’S: chap stick!! I don’t go anywhere without my chap stick and you shouldn’t either…besides, it makes your lips look so much better for your photos!
Flip Flops: I would wear them all year round! You got to have a million pair. I even keep an extra pair in the car-you know, just incase, one breaks. I’ve had that happen a few times-then you have to drag your foot around..hahaa!!
Traveling: This is an expensive hobby! I’ve been bitten by the travel bug and I’ve been to some pretty amazing places which include (just to name a few): Italy, Ireland, Costa Rica, Mexico, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico as well as all over the US and Canada…and beyond! My favorite? Ireland!!
Subway: 5 dolla foot long! I could eat here everyday! My favorite is the oven roasted chicken breast on italian herbs and cheese ran thru the garden. I like my sandwich to have lots of pretty colors!
Iphone + Cool Cases: I can’t live without my Iphone. I am one of “those” people who joined the Iphone cult! Now that I know the awesomeness-I will never own anything else! My iphone case looks like a cassette tape-I think it rocks!!
Sweet Tea: YUM!! But not just ANY sweet tea, the sun tea. My grandma made it all the time growing up. She would let it sit out in the sun to brew……ahhh, the memories!
Old School Candy: Penny Candy is the bomb! It was one of my favorite past times-walking down the street to the little store to purchase penny candy and all the other awesome candy of the 90’s!
The Beach: toes in the sand, fruity drink in hand….and crystal clear waters! Ahhhh! It’s my therapy…I NEEEED the sun. It affects my moods!
Instagram: I’m a little depressed that Facebook purchased this (and I hope they don’t ruin it) but it’s like my little life scrap book-a journey of my travels and my thoughts-VISUALLY!
TOMS: This is a recent obsession. I’m always struggling to find a pair of comfortable shooting shoes….and I think I found them. They are heaven on your feet…AND when you buy one, they donate one! Win-Win!
Comfy Pants: Don’t judge me…but this is a STAPLE in my wardrobe. haha! I have them on almost 24 hours a day unless I have to go out in public. When I get home, my comfy pants come out! haha!
Keeping Things Simple: It’s how my brain has to work. I use systems and methods that keeps everything simple…both in my personal life and in my business. Simple is the new black!
Business/Entrepreneur Books: I really enjoy reading about business…call me a nerd..but I like to think I’d dedicated. I’d take a business book over any sci-fi book ANY DAY!
