So we can get better acquainted, here’s a little Q & A and quick facts about me:
1. Where are you from?
Short answer: I seriously don’t know where I’m from (Real Life).
Long Answer: I can hear it now, “How do you not know where you are from?” Weeeeeeeeell, I don’t. Honestly every time someone asks me that question, I cringe a little inside because I never know how to answer that question. So, I just respond with whatever I’m personally vibe-ing with more that day. Truth is, I spent a good portion of my life in Kansas and another good portion in Louisiana. Sooooo, where does that make me from?
2. Where do you live?
After that complicated answer of where I’m from (see above), I’m happy to say this answer will be a little less complicated. I live in Houston. But, this could be changing soon. Stay tuned for a plot twist . . .
3. I don’t get bit by mosquitos
Yup, you read that correctly. I don’t (really) get bit by mosquitos. . . and it’s pretty f’ing AWESOME! Not sure why, but I’ve only met one other person like me. #UnicornStatus I once was dared to sit outside in the middle of a hot and humid Texas summer evening to prove to my best friend, Chameka that this was a real thing. Needless say, I won unscathed and she didn’t fare to well. I’ve Googled this phenomenon and the best answer I could find was there’s a chemical in my blood that mosquitos just aren’t interested in. Oh, well. Definitely not mad at it. Glad they don’t find me tasty.
4. I haven’t shaved my legs in over 3 years
I don’t grow hair on my legs. On my head, yes. On my legs, no. My mom and my dad are the same way. We don’t grow leg hair. And it’s AWESOME!
5. I’m OBSESSED with Jeopardy
Dear Alex Trebek, I need to meet you and I need to be a contestant on Jeopardy. Everyday, I watch Jeopardy. Just know when Jeopardy is on, it gets serious. No one is allowed to speak until commercial break. I need all the silence and concentration I can get to answer those hard ass questions.
6. I’m that annoyingly happy person in the morning
Yup, I’m that girl.
End of story. Period.
7. No matter how old my dog gets, I will always call her my “puppy”.
Ya’ll my little baby girl dog, Venus is old. But she’s sooooo freak’n scruffy and cute. Despite being a few dog years away from earning her AARP card, Venus is still small and puppy sized. And due to my wonderful parenting techniques, she embarrassingly still does some puppy things. So, she’s my puppy.
8. I HATE ketchup
And don’t even get me started on mayo either. In all fairness, this disgust can easily be traced back to my previous childhood ketchup allergy. Team Mustard on my fries all day everyday!
9. I once crashed a wedding & a celebrity called me out on it
True story; however, I’ll tell you more about it later. Just know that it happened
10. I Google everything
I seriously Google EV-ER-REE-THANG! I really should look at buying shares of Google. Just know if I randomly break out my phone during a conversation, chances are I’m probably Googling something. Not sure if it’s an unquenchable thirst for knowledge or an addiction.
Fashion is about dressing according to what’s fashionable. Style is more about being yourself.
