Blogger Confessions {XI}

Welcome to the next installation of Blogger Confessions! Want to catch-up on what you’ve missed so far? The links to the TEN previous Confessions posts are at the bottom. 🙂 Today we’re covering education, travel dreams, and more!

If I won the lottery right this instant I would book an around-the-world trip to see all of the places on my To See List and buy a house.

When I left undergrad I had very definitive plans to go back to school to get my PhD in History as well as a psychology degree. I always saw myself leading an academic life – Always a student, always in the library, always researching & writing. It’s interesting what 9 years does to your perspective!

I could probably live on sweet potatoes. You can use them for everything from cheese sauce to French fries to baked goods to soups & stews. They’re just so good!

In a perfect world I would split my time between San Francisco, New York, and London – They’re three of my favorite places in the world and I love all the great travel opportunities nearby for each. In California you can get to Hawaii, Central America, and South America relatively easily. From New York you can visit the Eastern Seaboard, Canada, and the Caribbean. And from London all of Western Europe is your playground.

I’m a water baby! When I go on warm-weather trips I usually spend most of my time in the water – Jet skiing, SCUBA diving, snorkeling, water skiing, swimming, climbing water falls, jumping off of cliffs… I’m happiest in the water!

Blogger Confessions {X}

Welcome to the 10th Blogger Confessions post! Want to catch-up on what you’ve missed so far? The links to all nine of the previous confessions are at the bottom. 🙂 Today we’re talking precocious childhood dramatics, sleeping habits & more!

I’ve never snoozed an alarm clock. Yes, I’m sorry my dears, but I am a morning person.

Traveling is one of my favorite things and over the years I’ve visited a number of countries across Europe, Asia and the Americas. The top of my Travel To Do List includes Turkey, Egypt, South America, and Russia.

Athens-Traveling-The-World

{Wanderlust}

I decided to become a vegetarian when I was twelve after watching a video in science class. My parents were super excited about that one! 🙂

Napping is not my thing. I’m jealous of people who can take power naps and wake-up refreshed and rejuvenated. I’d rather just go to bed earlier and skip the nap entirely.

I grew up with a number of pets – An English pointer named Molly, a rabbit named Bunnicula, a guinea pig named Frodo, and cats named Fritzie, Bilbo, Neo & Ozma. Yes there were two Lord of the Rings characters, my father read my brother & I the JRR Tolkien books as bedtime stories when we were growing up.

Blogger Confessions {IX}

Welcome to another edition of Blogger Confessions – This week I’m talking about my least favorite thing in the world, hair, movies, and more!

I spend most of my waking time tripping or running into things. I was an athlete for most of my life and at various times could do flips on a four-inch balance beam and twisters off a 10 meter platform – But walking through a doorway without slamming my hip into the frame is completely beyond me.

San-Francisco-Fashion-Blogger-Blonde

This one always seems to surprise people – I’m actually a natural blonde. {In you’re in the Bay Area I highly recommend working with the fabulous Natalie Keklikian – She took me red three years ago & I’ve been with her ever since!}

I’ve had always had a black thumb but have somehow managed to keep the two plants on my desk at work alive since November. It’s a birthday miracle!

Action movies are my favorite film genre. I love a good comedy, won’t can’t sit through anything romantic or serious, but will watch Transporters over and over and over again. I own all three.

I hate talking on the phone. Hate with a capital “H.” I blame too many long distance relationships. Just thinking about having to schedule a call fills me with dread and anxiety.

Blogger Confessions {VIII}

Welcome to another edition of Blogger Confessions – In this series I’m sharing funny little facts & random insights into my day-to-day life. This week’s installation includes an unexpected fear, vices, musical preferences, and more!

PETA scares me a little. Ok – A lot.

New-Years-Eve-CCUOCO-Preparation-Outtakes

{New Years Eve Leather}

During a photo shoot I’m serious for roughly 10% of the time and there are usually more “outtakes” than blog-worthy photographs.

Halloween is my favorite holiday by a long shot. I mean – Candy, costumes & free rein to act like a kid for the day with no judgement? I would take that once a week if I could!

My secret vice? Red heads. I kid you not.

DVF-Headphones-Big

{I’m in LOVE with these DVF headphones!}

I couldn’t live without music. I would never claim to be a “music person” as I have no idea what’s new or popular or on the radio – But I do love all kinds of music and have headphones in for most of the time that I’m awake. I go through phases where I listen to one type of music until I can’t stand it any more – Some recent phases include country, oldies, Motown, and a capella.

Blogger Confessions {VI}

Welcome back Blogger Confessions – This time I’m here to share my shopping Must Haves. TV & movie watching habits, funny idiosyncracies & more!

Polka-Dot-PJs

{Polka Dot PJs}

Random thing I can’t seem to stop buying recently? Pajamas.

The spunky best friend/sidekick in movies and TV shows are always my favorite. I clearly relate better to the zany, off-kilter personalities with a feisty streak than the “normal” main characters.

Doing laundry is my least favorite chore to do. I’d rather do dishes any day!

I only like odd numbers. Which I admit, is odd.

Orly-No-Bite

{Orly – No Bite!}

While I would consider myself a reformed nail bitter – I revert to my old ways whenever I fly. Can’t help it!
