A-Z, All About Me

Hello! I hope you had an amazing week! Today I am going to describe myself using one word beginning with every letter of the alphabet… with no explanation. You’ll go on to see that sometimes sticking to one word is just too hard.

Obviously this idea is not original to me, I found it on Pinterest & thought it would be a cool challenge for myself. I definitely could have made it just nice things, but I know my flaws so without further ado…

A- Aquarius

B- “Blue-eyed”, “Brunette”…. but probably BITCHY.

C- Creative… Compassionate… Cute AF?

D- Demanding

E- Eccentric

F- Fucking Funny AF

G- Generous, like too generous.

H- Humorous

I- Ice Queen

J- Jaunty

K- Kindhearted

L- Loyal (to a fault)

M- Moody

N- Nervous

O- Overdramatic

P- Perfect… Psychotic… JK, Passionate

Q- Querulous (this means whiney)

R- Real

S- Sarcastic

T- Tall

U- Unfiltered

V- Vain

W- Wild

X- Xtra (does this count?!)

Y- Yummy

Z- Zany

…..that was way harder than I expected. My quick “15 minute” blog took me almost an hour to write! I’m sure you all can tell which ones are a joke or that I just gave up on (xtra). Hahaha I had a lot of trouble with “X, Y & Q”… like laughing out loud at myself and I also googled a few times, nonetheless it was super fun!

Comment below and tell me your favorite letter or if we have anything in common!

My Five Favorite Lines to Live By

The five quotes that get me through the day are…

1. Onward & Upward.

– I know if you follow my personal IG or Pittsburgh Blogger Babes you’ve seen me say this thousands of times! It’s truly my mantra. It reminds me to keep pushing on because the only way to go when you’re feeling low or something sets you back… is up!

2. It is what it is.

– This phrase keeps me from getting emotionally caught up in situations that I have no control over. It is what it is and there’s nothing I can do about it… time to move on and push forward.

3. Per aspera ad astra.

– A Latin phrase meaning through hardships to the stars. This baby is my next tattoo, just waiting for “the climb” to get it. It’s also special to me because in grades 6-8 I took Latin! I only really know the pronouns, some prayers (catholic school problems) & that “uva” is grape BUT WHOS ASKING?!

4. If they’re talking about you they’re leaving somebody else alone.

– My Mom used to say this to me weekly growing up… girls are mean. Even though I push companionship over competition, I know I’m not always going to be liked or that people won’t always agree with what I’m doing. I just try to keep this in my head on repeat… I guess you could adapt it to social media times and say “If they’re trolling you, they’re leaving someone else alone”. Either way, think of it as your daily good deed that you didn’t know you were doing!

5. When one door closes, another one opens.

-I used to hate this saying so much… but it is literally so so so true. In light of being let go from the salon I was doing some freelance work for due to them seeing no value in social media, I just keep trying to tell myself that something great is just around the corner!

My Day in 10 Pics: Jan ’18

Saw this idea on Pinterest and figured I’d give it a whirl, with my own twist of course… Please note I did so this on a day when I do way more than I typically would.

1. Woke up next to my cat, Blayze.

Of course it’s not a man, I’ve actually declared myself undatable & proud. I don’t know why I’m undatable, I seem pretty f*cking good on paper. Attractive, college degree, driven, entrepreneurial minded, funny af….opinionated, indecisive, swears like a sailor… undatable. Some girls are bi, some girls are married, some girls are devoutly feminist… Although I don’t know why, I’ve accepted that my label is “undatable”… so I’ll wear that proudly.

2. Went on my usually morning Starbucks run….

If I wrote all of this yesterday would it shock you guys? I didn’t, but I could have because all of my days literally start the same way. Wake up, work, get coffee, work some more… when your phone is where your job is there is no out of office. If you follow me, you know it’s iced coffee only. Even when it’s 10 degrees.

3. I took a shower.

Shaved, exfoliated… the whole 9. I’m trying out this new charcoal tooth paste process thing, I’ll write a review on it later. I like to use powder tooth paste in the shower so it doesn’t get everywhere. I’m getting a spray tan later so the whole shower process is a lot of exfoliating, let me know if you want me to tell you about that another time!

4. Got some work done.

Between the PBB meet up this weekend & a social media in service at the salon this month, I am swamped. When I’m not running around like a wild woman, you’ll find me right in this little nook working my little ass off.

5. Met with Jess @6cycle!

This place makes me want to start working out…. it might just happen. Lots to talk about with Jess… I’m doing her events company’s Instagram @jessica.linn.events, she’s planning my bloggerific birthday party & 6ycle is partnering with the Pittsburgh Blogger Babes... lots to discuss! Speaking of 6ycle, everyone’s first ride is free and if you’re buying a package put my name in the promo code line so they know who sent you!

6. Chipotle…. duh

…yeah I eat all of that. Hot salsa till I die 🔥🖤

7. I built this shoe rack.

…well finished building it. It’s been a work in progress for about a month now. My babies are all so pretty, even the ones that can’t fit on this rack.

8. Phase 1 New Year, New Hairs @dallasbeautylounge

Sammi made my hair brown & Kristina tanned my pale ass… Go follow them now. More to come with these pretty ladies & The Best Business in Pittsburgh. *not being over-dramatic, they actually won that award* I mean come on, their hair dryers come out of the ceiling…….. COOL A F.

9. Wrote and edited this post

In my Calvin’s in my editing chair… this is how I work 99.9% of the time. Nail color is OPI Lincoln Park After Dark ~the OG~

10. Unisom & Sleep

As you can see… kitty boy is already ready to catch some Zzz’s. If you’re curious about Unisom or why I use it feel free to message me!

…andddd there’s a day in the life of me. I’d like to do this monthly because it was a challenging kind of fun! Let me know if you like 🖤
