Weekending & Get To Know Me

Weekending
Happy Monday lovelies!! It's not always fun coming back off a weekend, especially when the one before was a long weekend, but it's a short week around these parts and that makes things a little easier!! We had one of the most relaxing weekends and that just doesn't lend itself to the most thrilling weekend recap - however since it's been about a year since I did a "get to know me" post  and it's floating around the blogosphere- I thought it would be perfect for today!! 

Name. Age. Location
The name is Biana (pronounced like Rhianna without the "R") but my friends and family call me B! I'm 27 and I've lived in Boston since I graduated from the University of Florida 5 years ago! 

Other Half
I married my husband Gary in March of 2013 and you can read all about our wedding here and here

Working It 
I graduated with a degree in Criminology and also have minors in Business and Mass Communications. After college I worked in Commercial Real Estate and then in Finance when I finally found my way to becoming a proposal coordinator at a law firm. 

Hobbies
At this point I'd say blogging is by far my biggest hobby. Aside from that I love to play tennis - I played competitively for 12+ years and miss competing terribly! I also love to plan trips - like our recent European Adventure, find the best deals on my fashion obsessions and get manicures, you know the girly things in life! 

Favorite Food
Without a doubt Sushi is my favorite food - I could eat it daily if mercury poisoning wasn't a threat. 
I'm also a big snacker ~ but that's a whole different post! 

Standard Bar Order
I have three orders that depend on what I'm doing! 
If I'm trying to be fancy = Bellini
Night Out = Vodka Soda with two limes
Dinner or Relaxing = Riesling 

Places I Shop
I love to shop for accessories and make-up - leaving the wardrobe purchases to my mom...she's really the best shopper, but when I do shop at the mall I love Sephora, Ann Taylor, J.Crew & BCBG.  I also can't get enough of Marshall's and TJ Maxx! 

Beauty Products I Can't Live Without
First and foremost - I can't start my make-up routine without Garnier's BB Cream! I also love this bronzer and this NYX lip gloss

Bed Time & Wakeup
I'm a morning person and like to be up by 6:15 AM to get my workout in. I try to be in bed by 10:30 PM, with a little Big Bang Theory/Bravo on TV as I'm getting ready for bed. 

What I Blog About
Being a lifestyle blogger I'm able to blog about anything I find interesting and what I think you'd find interesting which usually means you can find recipes, beauty reviews, fashion wants & everything in between here! If there is anything you want me to write about - feel free to let me know! 

How I started Blogging/Why I Blog
 I started reading blogs after I saw one of the "Southern Brides" featured on Southern Weddings had a blog of her own! After talking about starting a blog for two years, Gary told me I should "just do it" and B~Loved Boston was born! 
I blog because it brings me so much joy. I've learned so much in this past year not only from figuring out this "blogging" thing, but I've learned from you! I find inspiration everywhere; walking home from work, reading a magazine, trying a new recipe...everything stems back to the blog and above all else, it's fun! I'm able to document moments of my life, things I'd probably forget if I didn't have this to look back on! 

I never realized how many wonderful people actually blog and I'm so grateful that I've "met" and connected with so many of you!! Amanda was one of the first bloggers I connected with via email and it's amazing to me that this weekend we'll be hanging out for the second time at our Alma Mater and can't wait to meet Pamela on Saturday too! 

So there you have it - a little bit more about me!! 
Hope you all have a wonderful day!! 
xo,

  2. I love these posts that give us a glimpse behind the blog! I'm totally a morning person too (as evidenced by the time of this comment haha) - my friends think I'm crazy when I've already gone to Trader Joe's, worked out, and blogged before heading into the office, but if I don't do it in the morning it will probably never get done!

  30. Mmmm sushi! ;) You know I'm a sushi lover too! But now the over-googler in me needs to google mercury poisoning! Yikes!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Aw how fun you'll get to meet Pamela, too! Loved reading this. Definite vodka+soda+extra lime gal, too (when wine is in need of a break, anyways!).

    ReplyDelete
  32. I am happy to report I knew like 95% of this so that make me happy! ;-) I really love how your drink order changes by what you're doing. I recently was exposed to Tito's vodka and water this weekend with lime and I was always scared of not having a mixer with it but it was really good! May need to have some of that this Saturday....in moderation of course ;-)

  49. It is kinda cool to get to know bloggers. We start knowing each other and it feels like we live in the same state instead of across the country.

    I LOVE sushi! I used to buy sushi grade salmon and prepare it at home. It has been a while since I have done it but it was really good.

    ReplyDelete

  56. I love reading other's people's stories. Your background is really interesting. I admire the fact that you blog everyday and hold down a full time job! And still get to bed at 10:30 and get up at six! You must be really organized! The blogging community is truly a joy and so inspiring and supportive! I'm so glad I discovered your creative corner of the internet :)
