Sequins and Sea Breezes: Striped Tank + Fun Facts About Me

Striped Tank + Fun Facts About Me


With my birthday being two days away I figured today would be a good day to share some random facts you may not (or depending on how well you actually know me) may know about me!

1 // Despite the anxiety I get from traveling, I absolutely love traveling and experiencing new places. I've been to 24 states, 6 different countries and multiple Caribbean islands. 
2 // I love trivia. I have a ton of useless knowledge so trivia is the only place I can actually put it to good use. 
3 // I tend to re-watch tv shows I love instead of watching new ones. I usually won't watch a new show until someone recommends it and even then it will take me awhile to get into it. I'm currently re-watching The Office for probably the 20th time. 
4 // I love to read. One of my favorite ways to relax is to sit outside or by the pool with a good book. 
5 // I over eat on a regular basis. I love food and have a hard time with self control. If food is in front of me, I'll continue to eat even after I'm full. One of my former co-workers/friends used to pour a ton of salt on my food when we went out to lunch when I said I was starting to get full so I wouldn't keep eating. 
6 // Old school Nintendo games are my favorite. I like playing the new stuff but I will literally play old school Nintendo games for hours. 
7 // Speaking of video games, I can make my voice sound like Yoshi from Mario and Stitch from Lilo and Stitch. #imweird
8 // I'm socially awkward. I tend to get uncomfortable in large groups of people, especially when meeting new people, so I can come across as bitchy when really I just don't know what to say so I don't say anything. Once you get to know me, you can't get me to shut up so enjoy the quiet while you can!
9 // Despite the fact I never sleep in, I'm actually a night person. I love the quiet and stillness of night. I used to go outside late and night and just lay in my driveway and look at the stars. 
10 // I wish I liked seafood. Everyone seems to love it except me. It sucks when everyone wants to go out for sushi and you have to either pass or speak up and say you don't like it. I always get weird looks. 
11 // Blue is my favorite color. I would choose any shade of blue over any other color. 
12 // I taught myself CSS. For some reason I enjoyed it so much I started taking some easy coding class and I now I have a very basic knowledge of HTML. I have a goal to start learning Boostrap.
13 // My nails are never not painted. Never. 
14 // I overthink everything and tend to talk myself out of things. 
15 // Not only am I an only child, I only have 4 cousins and none are within 10 years of my age so we're not really close. But I am really close with my parents and I have no problem going out drinking or playing Cards Against Humanity with them.

  10. I had no idea you were an only child -- my cousins (on my dad's side) are pretty far in age from me too, so we aren't that close either.
    I am a HUGE overthinker too -- it's kinda bad.

  11. I'm totally the same way when it comes to food, I could eat and eat and eat, especially if chips and salsa are involved! And I'm not an only child, but I feel the same way about my parents. I love hanging out with them, and we've been known to play quite a few CAH games with them!

  12. I think these kinds of posts are so much fun- I love getting to know you better! I'm a native Floridian and I can't stand seafood either... yuck!

  13. So fun getting to know more about you! I am with you in large group settings when you don't know people well. I tend to get quiet and I am worried people take it the wrong way! I overeat ALL THE TIME - I like idea of someone ruining the food so you stop, hah! Happy almost birthday!

  14. It's great getting to know you a little more. Well done teaching yourself CSS. I love your style, that top is lovely xx Maria

  15. Love how close you are with your parents - and this whole look, it's SO good! How in the world did you teach yourself CSS? That's one of my goals!

  16. Happy early birthday beautiful lady! I hope you have some fun plans lined up, actually I know you probably have some amazing plans to celebrate. So good learning about your personality in this post. Believe it or not, as much as we travel, I have major anxiety on flights even though I've been traveling since an infant with my parents. So fun to learn you're good at trivia and have a ton of "useless knowledge". K is the EXACT same way and knows so much it surprises me every time we play trivia with friends or at a bar.
