23 facts about me

23 Facts about me

Since it's my birthday, I thought I would take this opportunity to tell you all a little more about me.

1. I was born and raised in Chicago. I love this city so much and honestly can't imagine living anywhere else. Winters are hard but the summers are amazing.

2. My parents are from Palestine. We definitely keep the culture alive with our language and love for the food. I'm very proud of where we have come from and pray for peace in Palestine.

3.My lisp and my body were things I always got made fun of when I was younger. Now I don't even notice my lisp and most people compliment it. My weight is something I used to struggle with but I embrace now that my body is just curvier and that's ok.

4. I studied marketing in college and I work in marketing right now! The field is awesome and I hope to get more into fashion based marketing in the coming years.

5. I am a middle child! I have two older sister and two younger brothers and we all still I've together. I honestly love living at home and with all of them. It can be chaotic but you get used to it.

6. I have a shoe obsession. Shoes are my favorite thing to buy & splurge on! We all have our vices.

7. One of my biggest dreams is to be my own boss one day.  I get so inspired listening to how people made their start up companies and I have hopes that I'll be able to do the same in the future.

8. I am a creature of habit and I could probably eat the same food everyday and never get sick of it.

9. On the opposite note though, I love going out to eat! I look up places all the time that I want to try. I love trying new food but there are some things I'm just not into (like seafood).

10.  I used to hate wearing glasses when I was younger, but now that I'm older I can't stop wearing them.

11. I used to be tumblr famous. Remember when tumblr was a thing? Lol I still have so many followers on there but I feel like it's so dead

12. I'm really good at saving money. It might not look like it from all the shopping I do, but I try to save 60-70% a paycheck. If you guys would be interested in a post about saving, please let me know!

13.  I have had long hair all my life! I got the urge this year to chop my hair, but don't think I have enough confidence to do it yet.

14. My favorite ice cream flavor is chocolate chip cookie dough.

15.  I hate buying anything full price. It has to be $30 dollars or else I will wait for a sale. Everything goes on sale eventually and anything worth having is worth the wait.

16.  I worked retail for soooo many years. It really taught me a lot about my personal style & how to find deals.

17. I have a cat named Coco. She doesn't like me very much and we honestly don't get along even though I wish we did.

18.  One of my goals for this year is to make a youtube channel! Coming soon hopefully

19.   I had braces for 4 years of my life and somehow I still feel like my teeth aren't straight enough! Lol

20. I'm honestly such a silly/goofy person but I don't show that on the internet. I don't want to scare you guys away (I'm serious lol) I'm definitely the funny one in the family.

21.  I have learned over the years that I am more of a talker than a listener and I'm trying to reverse that.

22. My favorite drink of choice is the salted caramel latte with almond milk at three arts cafe.

23. Not a glamorous fact but this year I discovered I have plantar fasciitis. It's a foot problem that stemmed from all my years of retail in shoes that weren't supportive.

Hope you guys enjoyed learning a little piece of my life! Cheers to 23.
