Some About Me Randomness….

As much as I adore outfit and inspiration posts, I love when a blogger behind the blog shares some things about themselves, so I thought it would be fun to do just that! So here are some random facts:
1)My entire family is from Moscow, Russia and I’m first generation American. I do speak it fluently but it has gotten worse since I moved out a few years ago.
2)I have to eat at least a small piece of chocolate every single day. If not, I kind of freak out (lol).
3)I’ve lived in NYC my entire life and as much as I adore traveling and learning about other cultures, I currently cannot image being anywhere else.

4)I cannot start my day without a cup of coffee. I only drink 1-2 small cups a day, but it’s a must. I’m also a slight coffee snob.
5)Keith & I are college sweethearts. And I’ve had people notice my ring and ask if we’re engaged, which we are (have been for a few months).

6)I’m an only child but my friends are truly like my sisters.

7)When it comes to food, I am the least picky person. I will try anything once.
8)Movies I can never turn off: Mean Girls, The Departed and The Notebook

9)I love astrology and I’m a true and utter Libra.

10) My hair is naturally dark blonde but I do lighten it and prefer it that way.

If you guys have any additional questions, feel free to ask! 🙂
I’ll do a post answering some of them soon!

    Я вообще не знала что ты русская! :)) Потому ты такая красивая, хаха, мы девочки из Восточной Европы просто замечательные ;))) Мой будущий муж тоже русский, но он из Сибири. Мне очень нравится твой сайт – надеюсь что ты мне ответишь :))) Если у тебя достаток время, ты бы могла мне немножко помочь с моим русским (только если хочешь, конечно! :)))

  • Monique

    Thanks for sharing…I love your blog and style!!
    I have two questions: Do you work in anything fashion related? and Where did you get your pretty Chanel bags?


  • Eveline

    Maybe a question you won't like: what's your age?
    Who takes your pictures?
    How long have Keith and you've been together?

    My boyfriend and I are Highschool and college sweethearts. We actually never felt a sparkle during highschool (or at least I didn't :)) but when we went to college we already became a couple in the first week. We've been together for 5 and a half years now. At the moment I'm getting my third master degree so I look forward to next year 🙂 without any examens and studying.


  • Ria

    Awww I like your littler blurbs. So cute. I can never turn off Mean Girls either by the way. I used to have to have diet coke in the morning. Now I'm broken of that. I want to start having water with lemon because it's so good for you.

  • Rebecca from See You in Sweden

    I am so in with you on the chocolate and I go lighter than my natural blonde too, much more fun and brightens your complexion I think! Oh, and I'll try anything once too, it's exciting. I've even some bizarre things though, haha.

  • Rebecca from See You in Sweden

    I also like it when people share stuff about their lives. Your information was very interesting.

    Last night, I was in Brooklyn visiting a Russian-immigrant friend who came here a decade ago and is building a makeup-company (LimeCrime). My father was an immigrant so I have great sympathy for the struggles people face coming from other places.

    And I love "The Notebook" too!

  • Charee Lenee'

    Great idea… DEF gonna use this! Thanks for the idea! 🙂 Also, I LOVE LOVE LOVE your header, I've been trying to get Hubby to do mine similiar for quite sometime, I keep telling him that RED silhouette sitting on MY name should be ME!! LOL Now I can show him exactly what I mean. LOL LOL LOL Happy New Year!

  • nikkb
