1// I speak Russian fluently but can't read or write it - I was just shy of two years old when my family moved from the Ukraine to Florida.
2// I am a reality T.V. junkie - this may not be a random fact if you know me, but I like almost every reality show out there. There are some extremes that I refuse to watch, but for the most part if it's a singing competition, dating show or on Bravo I'll watch!
3// I have to sleep with the fan on, even if it's freezing outside. There is just something comforting about a little white noise. My husband hates it!
4// My nails have to be painted at all times. If the polish is chipped on one nail, the rest of them have to come off too.
5// I used to teach runway and just about every other class at John Casablanca Modeling - I started working there when I was 16 and worked until I graduated from college!
6// I played competitive tennis for 12 years and quit right before I started school at the University of Florida.
7// I have an obscene amount of purses and they don't fit into my closet anymore - I've had to become a little creative.
8// The stores I love to shop at most are Banana Republic, Ann Taylor, J.Crew & TJ Maxx - however you will be surprised to find out that I rarely shop for myself and my mom is pretty much my personal stylist!! She has a knack for getting great deals!! BONUS - we have the same shoe size!
9// Right before I go to get a hair cut, I think "this will be the time I get something totally different" but every time I chicken out and go with what I know works!! I've also never colored my hair...
10// I didn't have a middle name until I got married this past March! You can imagine my excitement when my initials went from BS to BSP!! Now I'll monogram everything I can get my hands on!
And in honor of Throwback Thursday and what would have been my grandfather's 90th birthday - here is a picture I keep on my mirror and look at daily - my guardian angel and me at about 2 years old!!
