Confident Girl

The prompt for today is: “Describe an outfit that makes you feel good. (It can be from any period of your life.) Double points if you post a picture of yourself in the outfit.” In high school I really wanted to be on the short flags team. I tried out to be on the team freshman year and didn’t make so I tried out again the following year and made the team. It’s just the kind of person I am–I never give up on my goals! Even though I felt awkward and ugly during those years I always felt my…

First Friend

Tell us about your first friend. My very first friends where my sisters. Some people may not count siblings as friends but I truly feel like we formed a strong bond beyond what most siblings experience. We did all kinds of fun stuff together that friends would normally do together. Growing up with a sister only one year and a half younger and another sister five years older made for some interesting experiences. Marina, the eldest sister, used her five years extra to her advantage to lead and orchestrate shenanigans. Jessica, my younger sister, was close enough in age to…

Plugged In

How much of the day are you plugged in? Do you consciously set aside offline time, or does it happen whenever it happens? Since my job as an Associate Social Media Manager requires me to be constantly connected and aware I am ALWAYS “plugged in.” That means I am always online. Thanks to HootSuite my web browser window holds streams for each brand I manage with all of their social media accounts up at all times. I’m checking Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Pinterest and Vine all day long Monday through Friday. It’s my job to grow our audience and raise…

Blog Post I Didn’t Publish

Tell us about a blog post that you didn’t publish. Honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever started a blog post and then didn’t hit publish. I usually spend a lot of time thinking about what I want to write before sitting down to write. I also read, reread, and reread it again to proofread and edit my posts. Sometimes I remove a sentence or two or even entire paragraphs. Sometimes I rewrite things to make better sense. There are ideas that I’ve never written down. I’m hoping that over time I’ll be able to open up a bit more. I…

Bad Habits

If you could quit one bad habit instantly without difficulty, which would it be? No human is absolutely perfect, we all have bad habits we’d like to break. A bad habit I would like to break is touching my hair. It’s a weird thing that I do subconsciously and I’m not completely sure when it manifested. Sometimes I catch myself at my desk twisting a piece of hair from the back of my head. Or my bangs. Tugging the strands, sliding my fingers through. Finding odd bits that are textured instead of smooth. Then I realize what I’m doing and…

Night Owl

Are you a morning person or a night owl? If you read my post from yesterday then you already know the answer to this–I’m a night owl! I often find myself staying up late with ideas and thoughts whirling around in my head. I feel so productive at night! Being a night owl doesn’t mean I like going out to be with people. No, it means my mind is active and I’m ready to create. I found it to be extremely difficult when I worked at offices with a strict start time. Especially when I needed to come in extra…

Favorite Hour

What is your favorite hour of the day? When the day is done and I’m freshly showered and in my pajamas with a good book, that’s the best hour for me. I try to go into bed (key word here is TRY) at least an hour before I actually want to fall asleep so I can just enjoy being surrounded by blankets and pillows and just relax for a while. I LOVE to sleep and dislike waking up. While I enjoy living, I wish I could wake up at my leisure everyday. Spending a little extra time in bed at…

Refrigerator

The prompt for today is: Name five things inside your refrigerator right now and how you feel about them. Since we recently moved into a home where my sister, sister-in-law and nephew live we decided to get a mini fridge for our area of the house. We do keep groceries in the main fridge but for smaller things like beverages and snacks we keep them in our fridge just for easy access. 1. Bottled water – how do I feel about that? I feel like…sometimes we get thirsty or have friends over and want to offer a drink without having…

Trapped In A Movie

Continuing on with National Blog Posting Month, the prompt for today is: If you had to be trapped inside a movie for 5 days, which movie would you pick? In the past I wrote about my favorite movies but I wouldn’t want to necessarily be STUCK in any of them for five whole days. I would want to be stuck inside a movie with magic and happiness. Where something wonderful happens. I’m a big fan of Disney movies so this is a tough choice! Maybe I would be stuck inside Bambi. In the beautiful forest, roaming around with Thumper, Bambi…

Daily Blogging

Today’s prompt is: Tell us what you’ve learned so far about daily blogging. Since I got a late start on NaBloPoMo I haven’t really learned anything yet! I did participate in a blog challenge earlier this year and I found it to be very helpful in clearing out the cob webs in my head. I sometimes get stuck on this blog with topics to write about. Since this is just a very general “lifestyle” blog I feel like I don’t have a real specific angle to work with. I don’t want this to become a “dear diary” type of blog…
