…Loves Kate Spade and Lilly Pulitzer but cannot afford any of it.
…Thought maxi dresses and maxi skirts were weird last summer and now wears them all the time this summer. You can view those outfits here, here, and here.
…Goes crazy for good sale and clearance racks.
…Always needs to be doing something. I relax by being productive!
…Loves cheesy best friend movies like Aquamarine, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, etc. It's kind of embarrassing how much I love these movies.
…Dreams of being an entrepreneur. Of what kind of business, I'm not sure yet. I like the idea of opening a boutique!
…Is completely obsessed with sorority recruitment. Why am I not in college anymore!? #FutureSororityAdvisor
…Writes thank you notes like it's my job.
…Doesn't understand laying out in the sun all afternoon. Even at the beach. It's just so boring!
…Doesn't understand midi rings, crop tops, high waisted cut off shorts, cut off shorts, and shorts with an instead less than 3". Why are these things trending?
…How to use an iPhone properly. Seriously. Without Rachael's help, I'd be completely clueless on what iMessage or whatever that is…
…Is completely disorganized. My room is a hot mess. There's so many papers piled into my planner and I can never find anything. I try to stay organized and clean everything up once a week but within a day, it's a mess again. How do you people do it?!
…Tried to watch The Walking Dead but ended up not sleeping for two weeks. It was awful. So many nightmares were induced by that show. BUT IT'S SO GOOD.
…Hates chevron yet has a chevron dress…explain that one to me…
…Spends way too much time working on blog stuff. Is spending too much time working on your blog such a thing? Nah.
…Participated in #TheInspireSwap hosted by Rachael! I was paired with the darling Amanda who blogs at Cats, Cudding, and Carrot Cake. She was an absolutely wonderful partner and has so many big goals! She hopes to get her doctorate degree, own a kitten, and develop a consistent blogging schedule. Go check out what I sent her!
Amanda sent me the sweetest box filled with adorable goodies!
She made the pens, bookmarks, and keychain herself! She knew I loved my sorority, want to read more this year, and hope to get my driver's license soon! I love traveling so she sent a travel journal and a #CEOmaterial notepad for when I figure out my next business venture! The chocolate and raspberry Godiva bar almost didn't make it into the picture! I definitely had to use some self-control in waiting to eat that deliciousness! Thank you so much for the wonderful box, Amanda!
What kind of girl are you, Darling? Would love to hear how you would finish this sentence: I'm the girl who…
Meet Erica of Coming Up Roses
What is your favorite thing about blogging?: Most definitely reading comments and emails after a "deeper" post is published. It's usually one where I felt pretty goshdarn vulnerable, like this one or this one, scared of putting my serious thoughts and emotions and feelings out there on the world wide web for all to see.
Why do you blog?: I actually wanted to (and still want to, someday...) write a book. My dream was to have this "best friend" feel, where I could provide insight and advice in a relatable way while still giving a good laugh or provoking thought on a deeper level. Blogging was a perfect stepping stone, though, since now I can talk about whatever I want, whenever. AND I can add pretty pictures and network with some pretty amazing ladies along the way. What could be better?
Besides blogging, what are your favorite hobbies?: Blogging. Oh, besides blogging? Playing piano, pretending I'm a yogi, singing loudly in the shower and in hotel rooms, obsessing over The Bachelor, trying to beat 2048, shopping off-price retail, geeking out over branding, working towards 20 lb. bicep curls and Olivia Pope's coat collection. That sums it up.
Fun fact about yourself: I have a tattoo. And my alter ego's name is La'Taniana'Bo'
Linking up with Sparkles & Shine Sami!
