I never really talk about myself or mention anything really personal about myself. My blog posts are mostly impersonal thoughts and ideas that just seemed to happen the day of. I want to start making my posts a little more intriguing and heart felt, so what better way than to explain myself a little better.
First things first, I have to say that the biggest part of my life is Israel. He is honestly my life - without him I wouldn't be the person I am today. He has helped me grow and become a better person. I have to say I am the luckiest girl in the world to have my soul mate and I get to married him and spend the rest of my life with him.
I feel like the words that most people would use to describe me would be neat freak, know it all and dog lover. I feel like these are three of my major qualities. I literally have OCD when it comes to having a neat home. I feel like my home should always be as clean as if you were expecting someone over. I may get a little out of hand and start fights with Israel over it, but that's just who I am. I believe a clean house is a happy house. As for being a know-it-all, it's not a smart ass kind of know-it-all, it's more like, I've always been that smart girl that could learn things quickly and always did pretty well in school. I mean, I did get a Chemical Engineering Technology diploma (which I don't use at all for my field of work). Lastly, I'm a huge dog lover. If I could have every dog in the world, I would honestly be the happiest person alive. With the two dogs I've had in my life, Marble and Berkeley, I look at them as if they were/are my child. I love them and I feel for them - when they cry, my heart breaks. When they're happy, I can see how happy they are and it puts a smile on my face. I love dogs, especially Marble and Berkeley.
Why do I blog about fashion? Well every since I was little, my mom always made sure we were well dressed children - wearing the latest trends and outfits. I guess fashion has just stuck with me every since.
If you ever see me in public, you will probably see me wearing a dress/skirt and heels. I own 3 3.1 Phillip Lim bags which are usually the only purses I wear and I love my Jimmy Choo Abel heels. If I'm trying to go for a more casual look, I usually will still be wearing a dress (something more flowy) with my white leather Keds. I hate wearing jeans, sneakers and socks. I feel suffocated in them. My legs and feet feel like they can't breath and I'm being sucked in to this deep, dark place where I can never come back (I'm just being overly dramatic but I do honestly hate wearing these stuff!).
I'm slightly addicted to shopping and tend to spend most of my money and clothes. I believe in quality over quantity. That being said, I do tend to spend my money on higher fashion brands. Which is not always a good thing but I'm slightly a brand name whore as well. If I can have something and there is a cheaper, almost perfect knockoff/mock of something, I still won't buy it. And that's me just being me.
I hope this post lets people understand me just a little better. I want to start making my blog posts a little more personal and heart felt. So hopefully you still follow along and get to know me a little better.
