"Malori"



I was really inspired by Kymberly and Courtney's "putting yourself out there" posts so I decided to do one of my own :).

I am a really self confident lady so I actually enjoy posting pictures on my blog. I like to share pictures of my outfits and on days when I'm feeling particular pretty I love to share that with you. There are plenty of days, however, when I don't post pictures because I feel gross. We all have our moments, right!? So even though I post a ton of pictures, I thought I'd post one anyways.

(this is one of the rejects from my new header!)

And now I'll share 25 facts about myself... This could get a little boring so I'll try to stick with somewhat exciting facts (and maybe some of the basics)!!

1) I'm a marketing communications major at Columbia College Chicago. I love it and I think I'm pretty good at it (oh hey narcissism!)

2) In middle school and through a bit of high school I used to feel really ugly. Now I really like the way I look and I'm a pretty self confident lady.

3) This blog was originally intended to be a daily style fashion blog.

4) I've never had a boyfriend.

5) My hair is naturally blond. My mom always tells me she's patiently waiting for the day I decide to go back to blond (long hair with straight across bangs to be exact)

6) I am really comfortable in heels. I've never had a problem walking in sky-high shoes and I'm forever grateful for it!

7) I eat an obscene amount of chocolate. I always keep dark chocolate in my refrigerator and I eat a piece after every meal. My preferred brand changes every few months but dark chocolate is my absolute favorite. Also, a chocolate store recently opened near my work and I’m concerned about the amount of money I’ve spent there.

8) I always always always keep my chocolate in the freezer or refrigerator. I don’t like room temperature chocolate.

9) I really love to cook and I’d like to open my own restaurant someday. A cozy breakfast place would be fabulous!

10) I don’t really wear makeup. Not only do I not wear it, I really don’t even know how to wear it. 90% of the time I only have on mascara.

11) I’m terrified of flying. Every time I have to fly anywhere I get terribly anxious and I’ve been known to cry during bouts of especially terrible turbulence.

12) I use proper grammar and complete sentences when I text.

13) I really hate seafood. I refuse to eat anything from the sea (or lakes or rivers or fishtanks). I hate the way it smells, the texture of it, and the general idea of eating a fish.

14) I don’t like snow. I don’t like playing in the snow and I’m not fond of snow sports. It shocked everyone in my life when I decided to move to Chicago for school. Now that I’m here, I still really don’t like snow.

15) I love the beach. It’s the best place around and I plan on having beachfront property someday.

16) I’m really into interior design. I always wanted to be an interior designer and changed my mind at the last minute when I came to Columbia.

17) I’m not a big fan of traveling. I’d rather live in foreign places and experience the culture than go for a week and hit the tourist spots.

18) I’ve never tried any drugs. This may seem obvious but there are a shocking number of people who casually experiment! I’m not one of those people

19) I like Pineapple, Orange, Banana juice.

20) I love telling people where I work but my job title is much more glamorous than my actual job. I tend to leave that part out haha

21) My number one celeb crush is Adam Levine.

22) I really hate people who walk slowly. Tourists are the worst. They like to travel in larger groups that stop in the middle of the sidewalks and take pictures/point at tall buildings. It’s really frustrating when you’re trying to get to class or work on time.

23) I’d love to own a corvette someday. I plan on treating myself when I’ve saved up enough money.

24) I generally don’t have the patience to sit through a movie.

25) I’m one of those people who bottles up emotions and then has mini breakdowns when things get overwhelming.

that's about it!!

Such a fun post :) I've never had a boyfriend either, and I take pride in that I am AWESOME at being single--it just hasn't happened yet! I want to live in Chicago after I graduate from college to pursue theatre, and I totally sympathize with your feelings about the snow. You're so sweet, I love coming home from school every day and being able to read your blog. I appreciate the time you put into your posts very much!

Loved this! and I LOVE your new header. LOVE. <3

I also HAVE to have chocolate kept in the freezer or fridge and bottle up emotions, until I explode. I guess that's where the chocolate comes in handy! ;)

XO,
Danielle
