10 Random Facts About Me

Happy weekend loves! I have a pretty busy weekend planned. I am going house hunting today, and I'll be going out for dinner and drinks with my gal pals tonight. Tomorrow, I'm going to Universal Studios to enroll for my next semester at Hogwarts. ;)

This year, one of my New Year's Resolutions was to connect with my readers and social media followers on a deeper level. I wanted to post things that were more personal, have you all follow along on my daily, unedited life, and talk to you more on Snapchat/Instagram stories. Unfortunately, there are only three more months until the end of the year, and I haven't done ANY of that. 

So this post, I am listing 10 random facts about myself, so you can get to know me a little more!
  1. I was the fastest girl in my high school. Random, I KNOW! I was a sprinter and did high jump. My races were the 100m and 200m. My fastest 100m time was 10.9. (The wind definitely helped me that day)
  2. I was born in Hawaii! Yes, I was a tropical baby. Another random fact, I haven't been back since I was born.
  3. I used to have a British Accent. Soon after I was born, my parents moved back to England (My mom is British). We lived there until I was around five. When I started school in the states, the kids used to tell me that I talked funny! Some people still tell me I have a slight accent, but I'm all American now.
  4. I was on the 3rd best 12 and under basketball team in the U.S. I started playing travel basketball at the age of 9 years old. My basketball team went to Nationals in New Orleans, where we came 3rd in the country! Fashionistas can be athletes as well!
  5. I was nominated for Best Dressed, Most Athletic and Class Clown my senior year in high school , and lost them all! Still to this day, I think the contest was rigged. :p
  6. I am a the middle child. I have an older brother and a younger sister. 
  7. I have an 11 year old malti-poo named Sugar. A malti-poo is a maltese, poodle mix, and she is the sweetest pup around!
  8. I have the biggest fear of spiders, bees, roaches, and well... all bugs. Eeek!
  9. I graduated University with a double major in Business Management and Supply Chain Operations Management. 
  10. I LOVE watching all of the Real Housewives shows, except for the New Jersey ones. Real Housewives of Atlanta and New York are my favorites. 

In this post I am wearing sunnies by Marc Jacobs, blouse from Asos and jeans by Silver Jeans. You can shop this look below!

  1. I love these random facts and getting to know you better. I had no idea you were such an athlete! That is amazing to learn that and I too am a middle child. How awesome that you were born in Hawaii (we go every year), you will definitely have to go back and visit. I also love that you had an English accent. That is one of my favorite accents to hear (after French). You are such a smart, gorgeous, and athletic blogger and I am glad to know you better. xoxo, Christine

  4. This is awesome. I love these types of posts because it helps me learn a little bit more about people in the same fashion community and what they like to do when they aren't working. I have to say I found fact number 2 super surprising. You look like the total city girl! Probably has to do with the fact you haven't been to Hawaii in a while. On another note, your outfit is absolutely the cutest, I love the jeans, they are totally figure flattering. Loved reading about you!

    Vanessa, xo!

  5. Great facts! And you are right, so random. I love that you were best dressed but also class clown. Thats fab!

    Now onto those shoes - I'm not sure which I prefer, the black or tan colour way. Either way, you rock them both!

    Thanks for sharing.

  7. Loved getting to know more about you! And It's so funny, I'm over the housewives. They all yell and fight too much. I do still keep up with the Beverly Hills ones because I aspire to that lifestyle LOL. And I can totally see you with a British accent - you should bring it back :)

  9. First, I love your outfit! I haven't purchased silver jeans in a while but they used to be my absolute favorite! They are so comfy and make my booty look cute too! Double Win! I loved learning all of these facts about you! I know just how hard it is to keep up with all social! Super tough but glad you wrote this post! I had no idea your mom is British or that you once had that accent! Also, super jello that you're going to Universal! Moments like this I truly miss living in FL!

  12. I love finding out these random facts about you it's so good to share more personal things rather than just pretty pictures even though I do appreciate your beautiful photography and your beautifully styled outfits.
    Hawaii is one of my favourite places so it's really cool that you are born there.
    You were so athletic in high school ,I didn't really like sports in school but I do love running now even though a injury keeps me from doing it often.
    Hope to learn more about you soon

  13. So fun I love learning random facts about people babe! Thanks for sharing all these with us. I would not guess you were born in Hawaii thats so cool you should definitely go back again. You were born with a great style no doubt why people nominated you. In high school I didn't play basket ball but I did play soccer. Btw loving this entire look and that white blouse is stunning.
