Get to know me...

Happy Thursday morning!! Personally, I always love reading about other bloggers and "getting to know them" a bit more so, in an effort to help you get to know me a little better, I thought it would be fun to share ten random facts about myself!

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!!


So there you have it - 10 little random facts about me! Do we share any commonalities - do you have anything random about you?!

  4. I love these kind of posts! You use to teach runway??? I need you to teach me to walk...well maybe not trip over my own two feet first....or trip going up stairs...that seems to be an issue as well! Same size shoe as your mom! That is amazing!

  5. Love this! We have a lot of similarities.. #2,3 and 9 especially! I've never colored my hair either and I've been wanting to cut it into a long bob since after my wedding but I get too scared when I get to my hairstylist! One of these days we should just do something together :)

  7. What a great post! Love learning more about you :) That picture with your grandpa is so incredibly sweet - mine just passed a couple of years ago and I have my favorite picture of us framed in my bedroom. I did the haircut thing a few years ago - went for it and got a short trendy bob - and hated it after about a week! haha long hair for me from now on :))

  12. How awesome that you're fluent in Russian! I always keep my fan on year round too. It's the best to snuggle under all the covers!

  13. I am the same way about my hair. I had a short haircut once that I hated and was torture to grow out. Since then I have had my hair long lol. The most I will branch out is the addition of side bangs, and I actually put subtle highlights in just the underneath layers of my hair( for the first time) last Spring.

  15. I am the same way about my nails! I am so jealous you speak a second language fluently, it's one of the things I've always wished I could do and will make sure my kids are able to do :)

  17. I'm the same way about my nails and I love and am jealous that you are fluent in Russian. I always wanted to learn and be fluent in another language.

  19. I love this post - such a fun idea. You are absolutely hysterical too. I think we have a few of these in common, minus modeling, tennis, and speaking Russian. :-) Ahh it's so nice to be back to reading your blog, and all my other favorites. It's been too long. Thanks for still coming and saying hi on mine, even when I was away and under the weather. 😘
