10 (More) Facts About Me

Welcome back!!! So I asked YOU to decide what I should make my next Blog Post about. Everyone chose “10 Facts About Me”

So then I thought it would be a good idea to let you all decide what you wanted to know about me. I love the questions that were asked!!! I’ll have to do this again in the future! So here goes…. enjoy!

1. My Favorite Place To Visit?

This is really tricky. I could answer this in many ways. But I’m going to go with what FIRST came to mind. Indiana! I have a ton of family there and whenever I go to visit I just feel like I’m home! I’ll actually be going there soon, so keep an eye out for that Post!!

Oh and the next runner up is DISNEY!!

2. Favorite Make Up Products?

Ive always wanted to learn how to apply makeup right and also tips and tricks on how to get really creative. I think it’s fascinating how some people do their makeup. I have a couple Make Up products that I just LOVE.

“Too-Faced Better Than Sex Mascara” I’ve had people ask me if I have False Eyelashes on because they make my eyelashes so full!

“Cover FX” Honestly I love all their products! But this Setting Powder is AMAZING. I have naturally oily skin so after I apply my foundation, I put this on. It helps control my oil and also a little goes a LONG way!

Cicapir’s Tiger Grass Color Correcting

I have redness from previous acne and really just sensitive skin. I use to NEVER go out in public without having foundation on. But if I’m not in a breakout, I can just put this on and that’s it! This has really helped the redness clear up. I’ll always have this on hand!

( All three of these products you can find at Sephora or Ulta!)

3. Favorite supplement?

Alright so something I haven’t talked about too much yet (but I will) is a disease that I have. It’s called Gastoparesis which is paralysis of the stomach. It’s VERY hard to eat certain food and really each time I eat it’s like Russian Roulette. Sometimes I am unable to eat a meal so I have to have a supplement. Having this illness creates a lot of trips to the ER! Also my body isn’t able to absorb nutrients as easily so with this supplement I am able to!

I would honestly be SO lost without this! I always ALWAYS have some on hand. This has literally saved me in many ways and it’s delicious!

4. What Motivates Me Each Day?

I had to think about this. It’s just a loaded question. Honestly my past. I know we shouldn’t live in the past, but I have been through SO MUCH that it helps me stay focused on the NOW and appreciate my life NOW. I hope that makes sense. I have come such a long way (I’ll go more into detail in a later post) that I just use that to keep me going.

5. Favorite Personal Trainer?

I follow Kayla Itsines. I have her book and I also follow her app called SWEAT. This program kicks your behind but it works. All her recipes in her books are DELICIOUS. I’ll be honest though, I haven’t worked out in awhile but I’m going to be starting that back up VERY soon. (Stay tuned!) The whole SWEAT community is AMAZING. They help me to keep going.

6. One Thing People Would Be Surprised To Know About Me?

Again a loaded question! I have a very interesting story for my life. One of the things people would be surprised to know is that 11 years ago, I fractured two of my bottom vertebrae’s in my back. I fell in the shower and had to do about 7 months of Physical Therapy. Wasn’t fun and I still feel the effects of it today.

7. Favorite Childhood Memory?

I’m a Grandma’s Girl. To the T. All my memories with her are my favorite. But this one takes the cake. One year it was around Valentine’s Day. I made my box for school and was so excited for the candy and valentines but I got VERY sick with Strep throat and had to miss out. I remember laying there watching a movie and she knocked on my bedroom door and I looked over and she had one of those GALLON sized ziplock bags in her hand FILLED with candy for me. Anything you can think of was in that bag. Even hard candy to help my throat. She didn’t want me to miss out. To this day, that’s been my FAVORITE Valentine’s Day!

8. Favorite Song At The Moment?

This question got me GOOD. I’m a song person. I’m constantly listening to music. I always relate things to songs. So this is so so hard to answer! But I’d have to say:

I love ALL the song from this movie. This movie is one of my favorites now but this song just makes me feel good and makes me get up and dance!

9. Favorite Travel Destination & Why?

So I haven’t been the one to travel a lot. And if I do it’s close to home. As I have gotten older I’ve been CRAVING to travel. So I’ve promised myself that I’ll do just that. But my favorite place to travel to would be Egypt and France. I love learning about Egypt and especially Ancient Egypt. I am French and want to be able to go and experience my culture.

10. What Celebrity Do I Admire?

Lucille Ball. I love watching I Love Lucy. Years ago when I went into a deep depression I started watching the show. Little did I know that it would change my entire life. I felt instantly connected to her and that I could relate to her on different levels. This show has really saved me and the more I’ve learned about Lucille Ball the more I just admire her. Interesting Fact:

I’m actually related to her!!

I hope you all have enjoyed learning about me a little more. If you are still curious I have another Blog Post “50 Facts About Me” where you can go and find out more!

Journey

 

Welcome to my blog! I am so glad you are here to join this journey with me. I decided to create a blog to share experiences, stories, and wisdom I have gained in my life. To talk about matters that have a special place in my heart and to also be able to help others through challenges that life throws at us. In no way, shape or form am I perfect but life is about living, growing, and helping others and that’s what I want to do. Life is hard, so why not get through it together?!

On this site, I promise you will Laugh. Learn. Cry. And hopefully feel inspiration! The world tells us all to be ONE way and if we don’t follow that one way well, then it’s the wrong way. This site will be a safe haven to talk, love and express what matters most. There may be topics you agree with and some you don’t, but hey that’s ok! I will be posting every Wednesday and Sunday and you NEVER know, there may be surprise posts as well!

I would LOVE to interact with all of you. So if you have ANY questions, topics you want covered, things you want to know, or just someone to chat with please contact me under the “Follow Me” section. I will be posting polls periodically to let YOU choose what I should talk about!
