FAQ – Get to Know Me!

I don’t know about you, but I’m nosy. I like to know what they like and don’t like, what they want to eat (mostly because it will help me decide what to eat for dinner), what makes them happy, etc. I thought doing an FAQ might help other’s get to know me a little. With that being said, I want to get to know YOU! Copy this FAQ and drop it in the comment section below.

Just kidding! Kind of. I like exercising sometimes but I don’t have much of a schedule about it. I try to take my dog for long walks or make a point to take a longer route. I’m not going to lie, as I type this, my boyfriend asked what the chips were doing all the way across the room and I told him it’s so that if I take a handful at a time I have to keep getting up for more which in turn, is exercise. Note to self, join a gym! In all seriousness, I am going to make a point this year to be better about exercising. Do you have an exercise routine that is not totally painful and boring? Help a girl out! Leave a comment below and let me know what I should try.

Favorite item – Fur Gucci Slides. I saved up for them and walked into the Gucci store so prepared to buy them. I tried them on, fell in love, then chickened out. Those are some expensive shoes!!! So, I went down the street to one of my favorite spots, had 2 glasses of wine, mustered up the liquid courage to buy the damn shoes, bought them, and never looked back! They are so unique and beautiful.

What I Want Next: Black and Gold Gucci belt

Down to business:

What was I doing before SNSB? – Email Marketing – which I am still doing.

What do I hope to come from SNSB? – I hope to create a community of inspired women who are ready to stand out, take risks,  and be themselves.

Who takes my pictures? – My boyfriend Mike patiently takes most of my pictures for me.

What kind of camera do I use? Canon EOS 70D
