10 Things About Me

So I decided that this first month of blogging I wanted everyone to get to know me a little bit better. Get to know the blogger behind the blog, essentially. So this post is kind of a start to that as I tell you all 10 things about me that you may or may not have known. So here we go:

1. I have never traveled outside of North America before.
I am big on traveling, I constantly am exploring and wanting to go to new places. However, when it comes to traveling, I usually stick within the United States. With the budget I have, I go to very few places that I can't drive to because it saves me money. I am all about budget traveling and saving money. I'm sure you will see all about my blog posts on traveling and saving.

2. I played softball and soccer for 10 Years growing up and that is where my love for sports comes from, and it comes from my family.
I can't imagine not playing sports growing up. When I grew up it was just a part of my childhood. I became obsessed with watching sports and playing them at a young age. I always had these plans and dreams of playing softball through college and that all disappeared when I reached high school, but it didn't mean the end of me playing sports. I ran cross country through high school and eventually that ended my senior year. However, I was very active and still to this day consider myself pretty athletic. Picking up a bat and ball or playing with a soccer ball doesn't really go away once you played for so long, it's like riding a bike, which fun fact I can't even do.....

3. I am an only child.
I am an only child. Not really much to say about this one.

4. I am a huge hockey fan.
I am obsessed with hockey. I love to watch it, attend games, etc. I am a huge LA Kings fan. It is kind of part of my family. We all love watching hockey and going to games. It is just so exciting.

5. I am a social media queen.
Social media is just a part of my life at this point. I am always on Snapchat, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook. It is part of my daily routine. I guess being part of the blogging world this little trait of mine helps. However, it has gotten me into trouble in my life at times.... lol (be sure to follow me: @brunetteadvent on twitter)

6. My family is my priority in my life
Family is everything to me. Without my family I don't know what I would do in my life. I love going to family events and spending time with them during holidays, birthdays, or just the weekend. When I can't spend time with my family it really sucks. It is what I look forward to each week.

7. I currently live in California, but dream of living in New York or the East Coast some day
I am a true California girl to heart I like to think, but  I am an East Coast girl all the way. I love big cities, I love winters and seasons, I love the lifestyle of the East Coast. New York is my one true love I like to think and I would die to live there in my life at some point. However, California will always hold a special place in my heart and I know in the end I will settle down and live here most likely.

8. My dream job is do social media for a sports team
Social Media like I said is a part of my life and I love interacting on it. I love it. I love sports as well. So when I finally figured out what I wanted to do in my life besides teaching, Social Media in the Sports industry was it.

9. I am obsessed with Belle from Beauty and The Beast and Tinkerbell because I relate to them.
I am a huge Disney nerd. Maybe not as much as I used to be, but still to a point I am. Belle has always been my favorite Disney Princess and Disney Character growing up. I was in love with Beauty and the Beast, still am. I watched it religiously. I do love all Disney movies though. Tinkerbell, I am literally in love with.  I don't even know why. I feel like maybe because as I got older I just related to her sass or the fact that without attention she dies? I just relate so well.

10. I love shopping for clothes and purses and bags, but when it comes to makeup and jewelry and beauty products I am very minimal.
Well this one is pretty self explanatory. I love clothes, I love shoes, I love purses, however, when it comes to doing my makeup or my hair I do the same makeup style, the same 3-4 hair styles almost daily. If my hair isn't curled, it's braided, if it's not braided it is just a messy bun, and if it isn't a messy bun then it is left au natural and wavy. Simple as that. When it comes to makeup, I have like no makeup skills and therefore don't even try to venture away from what I am able to do. I feel like this is a problem in my life I need to solve, but instead I am too busy online shopping.

So there you have it. 10 things you hopefully did not know about me before you read this. And if you did, well then you are probably related to me or something.
