Happy labor day weekend! I hope you all are enjoying this last long weekend of the summer. For today’s post, I thought it would be fun to do a “10 things you don’t know about me” post. I’ve been reading a lot of others posts like this and it’s been so fun to learn little things about other bloggers that they wouldn’t normally talk about. I hope you like it and enjoy the rest of your weekend! xx
1. I always have to have my nails done.
I don’t know why this is, but I don’t think I’ve gone more than half a day without my nails and toes painted in the last 10 years. I have this weird naked feeling when their not done and always feel so much better and put together when their freshly painted. My favorite colors are bright pinks and yellows, anything pastel and white (and obviously anything glittery).
2. Country music is basically all I listen to.
This really surprises a lot of people, but I am OBSESSED with country music. I have absolutely no idea how it started, but for the past 6 years it’s been pretty much all I listen to. I love more modern artists like Luke Bryan, Thomas Rhett, Dierks Bentley, Blake Shelton, etc. but I also love more classic country singers like George Strait, George Jones and Loretta Lynn.
3. I’m obsessed with anything coconut.
If something smells or tastes like coconut, you can be sure that I will love it. Coconuts just always remind me of being on vacation at the beach somewhere and that makes me SO happy. So whether I’m drinking fresh coconut juice, eating coconut cookies or using coconut oil in my hair, I’m always in a happy place. Sidenote: I always use coconut shampoo and conditioner and my favorite is the hydrating one from Herbal Essence.
4. I’ve never broken a bone… but have had some stupid injuries.
I can be super clumsy sometimes, so I don’t know how I’ve never broken a bone but I’ve had my fair share of stupid injuries. I’ve split my shin open twice in the exact same place while doing box jumps, I’ve dropped a 120 pound bar on my face after slipping off a step box and I’ve sprained and fractured my thumb after hitting it on the lane line while swimming butterfly at practice.
5. Horror/thriller movies TERRIFY me.
I’ve never really liked watches mystery shows, or even drama shows/movies, but I absolutely cannot handle horror or thriller movies. I don’t care what time of day it is or who I’m with, I will refuse to. I just get scared way too easily and don’t understand the point of voluntarily scaring yourself. But that’s just me, haha:)
6. The Bachelor/Bachelorette/Bachelor in Paradise are my guilty pleasures.
I always thought the Bachelor franchise shows were so stupid, but the second I started I was hooked. The first season I watched was Ben Higgin’s season and it’s my favorite thing to exist on this earth. I didn’t think I was going to turn into a reality TV junkie, but sorry I have! It’s honestly just so funny and romantic and the best way to chill after a long day or week at school. I also rewatch episodes all the time, and I never get bored.
7. My dream is to own a VW Bus/Van one day.
I’m not sure how my obsession with VW buses started, but I am making it my life mission to own one some day. I have pictures of them and little statues of them all over my room, I have shirts with them on it and every time my friends or family see one they always send me a video or a photo. I just think they’re so cute and funky, I just really want one.
8. I would choose the beach over mountains any day.
This might be pretty obvious from my Instagram, but I’m putting it in here anyway. I love being outdoors and doing anything active, but if it came down to the mountains or the beach, I would always always always pick the beach. There’s honestly nothing I love more than lying on the sand and looking out deep into the beautiful blue ocean. It’s by far the most relaxed I could ever be (unless I’m in a spa overlooking the ocean, because I’m good with that too).
9. I’ve watched either Friends or Full House every single night for the past 8 years.
Every single night since sixth grade, I’ve watched a little bit of either Friends or Full House to fall asleep. I am not much of a reader, but I do love watching YouTube or Netflix every night. Most nights I do watch some other things, but when I’m ready to go to sleep I’ll put on Friends or Full House. I usually only end up watching a few minutes of it but it puts me in such a good mood going to sleep. I honestly think I sleep so well and wake up in a good mood (usually!!) because I go to sleep happy. It might sound weird but it works for me!
10. I don’t really have eyebrows, I draw them in.
This is one of the things I tell people as an icebreaker because it’s so ridiculous, but 4 years ago my eyebrows completely burnt off because the pool I was training in was so heavily chlorinated. And when I say burnt off I mean like GONE. They eventually started to grow back a tiny bit, but I have to draw them in everyday so I don’t look ridiculous. Maybe one day if I feel like it I’ll share a picture with ya’ll, but you’ll have to wait for that:) Also, my favorite products to help with my lack of eyebrow situation is the Drawing Eyebrow Pencil from Etude House and the 3D Browtones from Benefit.
