I was born in Alaska and lived in the chilly North Pole for the first 7 years of my life. My parents then moved down to Florida, and that’s where we have been ever since.
I’m the 3rd eldest in a family of 10 kids — 2 boys and 8 girls. My mom is a distant relative of Superwoman and not only birthed us all naturally (no C-sections or twins), but also homeschooled each and every one of us. 🙂 Yep, she’s pretty amazing!
During my last two years of high school I was able to dual-enroll at my local collage and graduation from high school with my AA degree. I went on to enroll in cosmetology school. The program was a year and a half total, and I am now a certified cosmetologist in the state of Florida.
I met my husband at the end of 2012 when he was stationed in my hometown to finish his training. He is a Flight Surgeon in the Navy and we were married on April 26th, of 2014. (If you want to hear the whole romantic story, read this post first and then this post next (it’s the most exciting event in my life! 🙂 )
We moved to California for the first year of our marriage and then my husband was picked up as a Radiology Resident in Virginia, which is where we are currently living. We had our first daughter in December of last year and while being a new mom keeps me plenty busy, I still love to spend time doing the passions that I love. And one of those passions happens to be beauty!
Personally, even if I’m just going to be staying around the house during the day, I still love to put on a full face of makeup and try out a new combination of eyeshadows on my eyes. It just makes me feel so inspired.
BTW, I LOVE me some winged eyeliner! 😉
Other things that I really enjoy doing during the day would be (In no particular order): painting my nails, reading a good book, researching the newest beauty product on the web, watching beauty guru’s on Youtube, writing a post for my blog, baking something yummy, or Skyping with one of my siblings back home…
…and chatting with you all on any of my social media handles! (My favorite is Instagram! 😉 )
And there you have it — a quick look into my life. 🙂 Thanks for reading!
