One thing I think this blog has been lacking in terms of content lately has been personal posts. I have to be honest here and admit that the reason why you haven’t seen much “about me” stuff recently (or really ever) is because I have such a hard time writing about myself.
Seriously, guys. It’s the ultimate struggle for me. I could ramble on and on about a lipstick I’ve been loving or a coat I’ve been wearing nonstop, but when it comes to writing about myself…I’ve got nothing.
Regardless of how I feel about writing about myself, I know that I want to do more of it here on Currently, Lately. A lot of my favorite bloggers out there manage to articulate things about themselves so incredibly well. It adds depth and personality not only to the way they write, but also to the way I, along with other readers, read what they write. Does that make sense? I don’t know. It seems like I’m kind of rambling now.
The point is, I’d like to put up some more personal content on here. I probably will never do it consistently, but it feels like it’s a good thing to do every now and then.
Today we’re kicking off my newfound effort towards writing more personal posts with a simple eight facts about me.
Fact #1: I love reading
I’m a huge reader, and I think the way I read is kind of strange. When I read a book, I’ll almost always finish it in under 48 hours. And because I read quickly, I’m always looking for new book recommendations, so if you have some, I’d love hear 🙂
Fact #2: I buy way too many notebooks
I’m sure a lot of bloggers and photographers can related to this one, but I have an obsession with buying cutely designed notebooks. Anytime I go to Target or TJ Maxx, you can pretty much guarantee you’ll find me scouring through the stationary aisle at some point or another. I tell myself that these are “investments” because I can use them as blog props. But honestly, I think I’d still be buying them even if I wasn’t a blogger.
Fact #3: My style icon is Audrey Hepburn
I’ve always been a fan of Audrey’s, and I look to her style as a source of inspiration all the time. My love for ballet flats, high rise pants, and button-down blouses is all because of Audrey.
Fact #4: Besides writing, my favorite pastimes are running and playing tennis
I’ve mentioned my love for running a few times in the past, but something I don’t believe I’ve really talked about is my love for tennis. I’ve been playing tennis for around five or six years now. I play recreationally, and I have a lot of fun doing it.
Fact #5: I collect snow globes
Since I was a kid, I have collected snow globes. I love to get a new one whenever I take a trip somewhere. I think it’s a cool way to commemorate an experience. I’m not sure on an exact number, but if I had to guess, I’d say I have around 25. (And, yes, I’m seriously running out of shelf space).
Fact #6: My must-have beauty product is an eyebrow pencil
If I could only have one beauty product for the rest of my life, it would have to be a brow pencil. There are
some many days when I’m rushing to get ready in the morning, and my brows are the only things that get attention.
Fact #7: I like the technical side of blogging
I find the technical side of blogging (seo, online marketing, etc.) really fascinating. When I first started posting here on Currently, Lately, I had no idea about the business side of running a blog, and the idea of it kind of bored me. But now that I’ve been doing this a while, I’ve come to find it so interesting.
Fact #8: I feel very strongly about iced coffee
Do you ever find random, pointless things that for some reason you feel unnecessarily strong about? Some of mine include: pineapple on pizza, the Oxford comma, and iced coffee. Hot coffee is fine and all, but in no way does it compare to iced coffee. I’d take cold brew over hot brew in subfreezing temperatures.
That concludes this post! I hope you enjoyed seeing something a little bit different on here, and I’d love to hear your thoughts!
