I’ve always been somewhat fascinated by what people “think” they know about me. While it’s true that in this non-stop digital age of information most of us have perfected the art of the “perfectly curated” online persona, offline is usually somewhat of a different story. My house most certainly doesn’t look like a Pinterest board, and my closet did not just fall off the runway (maybe one day!). But it’s the little things that seem to surprise me most. So today I thought I’d share 10 somewhat unexpected truths about me.
1. I love to cook
It’s really shocked me recently how many people I’ve met that seem surprised I enjoy and cook…pretty much every day! No, I’m not a takeout-only Carrie Brawdshaw kinda girl. I love finding new recipes, entertaining and cooking with my hubby.
2. I skip wearing makeup…
A lot. I totally go out in public without makeup on all the time. And if I’m working from home, I might even spend a few days in a row without so much as touching a makeup brush!
3. I wear glasses
I’m totally blind and have been since about 13.
4. I kinda hate the beach
I know, the ocean is beautiful…yada yada…I’m much more of a pool girl, if there’s an umbrella involved, of course. The ocean is salty, sand gets in my toes, somehow it’s just not for me!
5. I hate it when people ask if “I like being an only child”
Do you like having siblings? You don’t know any different and neither do I…same thing…
6. I can’t do my hair to save my own life
Fashion=yes. Hair=fail. This is why hats are so magical.
7. You are not bothering when you text me a pic of an outfit for approval!
I secretly love this…
8. I write for a living
I was a Journalism major, fashion editor and now am a freelance writer first, blogger second.
9. I’m really an introvert
As much as I love family, friends and social functions, I get overwhelmed sometimes. And quiet. I’m not being a snob, I’m just actually an introvert. And hey, sometimes you just don’t know what to say.
10. Sometimes, I get sick of fashion
Blasphemy, right? Sometimes it’s just too much and I can’t help but yawn when hearing florals are a “trend” for spring yet again. Hey, it feels good to just throw on jeans and a tee every once in a while!
Do any of these surprise you? What are some unexpected truths about you?
