Laaaaaaaaaame. I’m resorting to the old question/answer schtick for blog fodder. This one is special, though, because it’s a sneak-peak at what Charm Fashion Agency’s new “About” page will look like.
Stick around until the end and I’ll give you a treat.
1. When did you start becoming obsessed with Beauty?
I’m a late bloomer, beauty-wise. When I was little, I wasn’t what you would call a ‘girly-girl’. I never played with Barbies, and the closest I ever came to caring about hair styling was when my dad would let me attempt to French braid his mullet. True story. In college, I started courting a beautiful, buxom gal named ULTA and my obsession officially began.
2. What is the one product you can’t live without?
Let me put it this way: if I was lost in the wilderness, I’d probably die in the first 24 hours. Without my beauty products (and electricity and indoor plumbing) I’m not a happy camper. But the one thing that really pisses me off is dry skin, so I don’t think I could live without a bottle of my go-to fave lotion, Johnson’s Baby lotion.
3. Name your favorite way to spend a Friday evening.
I’m a bit of a homebody, so on Friday nights, I love to curl up with my two favorite boys (Red and our two year old minion son, Boo) to watch a goofy children’s movie. Bonus if the cat decides to deign us with his presence.
4. What is your alcoholic beverage of choice?
I have a love/hate relationship with my comrade and partner –in-crime, Smirnoff. I love a good vodka cranberry (because, duh! I’m a girl,) but my ulcer hates it.
5. Favorite type of candy?
The first thing I run to the grocery store for when there’s bad weather in the forecast is some form of dark chocolate. Trust me, it’s not a good idea to try to get through Snowmageddon without dark chocolate. My grocery list for last week looked something like this:
- Bread, milk, eggs
6. Country of Origin/ethnicity?
Remember the Axis Powers from dubya dubya two? I’m basically two thirds of them—Germany and Italy—with a smattering of Euromutt. That means I like to argue (a lot), cook (a lot), and love (a lot). Also, my skin is really oily. Thanks for that, Dad.
7. Name your three favorite things off the top of your head.
Ummm… You really don’t want to delve into the dank gutter that is that corner of my mind, so I’ll name my second three favorite things: my cell phone, naptime (for me and Boo), and thunderstorms.
Yay for you if you made it all the way through that boring crap! Here are some pictures of my kid. Also: the most beautiful cat EVER.
