I often get asked, what do I like?
People seem interested in what I’m interested in…So today I’ve put together a list of my current obsessions, enjoy!
Underwear! From the luxurious Victoria’s Secret to Target brand. I love them all! Pictured above is my current obsession, Sofia Vergara’s Eby, her new line of underwear, you create the perfect “undie” for you, how fabulous is that? And it’s all done on-line!
Short hair! I just had a conversation with a woman at the nail salon as we were waiting for our nails to dry on this very subject. She was sitting opposite me, and I looked over and she was staring right at me 😉 She said, (what I hear very often), I Love Your Hair! I told her I get that often. We then had a great conversation about women who want to cut their hair, only they are afraid. Remember Coco Chanel’s famous quote: “A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life!” FYI: Check out my profile picture, this is me after dying my hair this morning. I’m feeling like a new woman 😉 Whenever someone (man or woman) tells me they need a change in their life, I tell them to cut their hair. It is without a doubt the quickest pick-me-up there is, and I know you’ll love the results!
Shoes! I am so obsessed with shoes. They are like my favorite! Michael Kors is probably number one (pictured above). I have five pairs of Michael Kors shoes, and I adore each and every one. (Unfortunately, I had an accident a little over a year ago and I haven’t been able to wear them since, but I’m hopeful one day soon I will again.) I have other favorites as well. Sophia Webster, Brian Atwood, Louboutin, the list is endless. Whenever I go to the mall, I that’s my favorite thing to do, walk around and admire all the beautiful shoes. I may not be able to wear them at the moment, but…a girl can admire;-)
Those make-up tutorials on InstaGram! (Picture above: Jeffree Star Cosmetics) I’m pretty good with make-up, but nothing compared to those people on InstaGram. I am in awe watching them (as are about a million other people), because that’s how many people watch those videos on both InstaGram and YouTube. And I’m happy to share I’ve picked up a thing or two from watching them. One of my goals for 2018, have one of those make-up experts do my make-up! #2018inspiration
Flash tattoos! I have been obsessed with them since last summer. I absolutely adore them, I think they look so pretty, and bonus point, they are temporary. So if you don’t like them, you just take them off (they start to fade after 5-7 days anyway). They add a whole new element to any ensemble, and it definitely gives you a different look than anyone in the room. I know. I have been wearing them for some time now and I always get complimented. I also do them myself, and I’ve gotten pretty good at it! So much so that I now offer this as a service of NineFrogs.
These earrings! I’m sure you’ve seen them by now. Double ball earrings. I must have close to 20 pairs. I discovered these a couple of years ago when a friend of mine brought me back a pair from the Philippines. Up until then, I’d never seen a pair like them. And I feel in love immediately. I’m always shopping all over looking for different ones. You just need to make sure you buy ones that work for you, your face and the holes where you got your ears pierced. Also, not every pair really works (at least not for me). Some are not made correctly, basically the wrong balance between the two balls. It’s a fashionista thing <3
Loving this gold pair from Dior <3
Writing! If you had asked me five years ago when I started my business if people would want me to write for them someday, I would have laughed. And now besides my blog, I write for other people. And I love it! It makes me happy when someone reads something I wrote and they say it made them happy, or they loved the fashion pictures, or that they are going to try something I wrote about. A couple of years ago I wrote a blog on “9 suggestions to have a happy day”, and a man wrote me saying he owned a gym and that he made copies of the blog and hung them in the gym to inspire people! How awesome is that? When you can do that for people, that’s a wonderful feeling.

Arcade Fire! I am a huge music fan, always have been. And Arcade Fire is my current obsession, and I LOVE their new song Creature Comfort. And when it comes to radio, WFUV is my favorite radio station. I have it playing all day long in my office when I’m working. I love the diversity of music they play, and I’m all about that 😉
Being the best ME! Notice I didn’t say beautiful, gorgeous or pretty. Just being the best me. Some days I hit it out of the park, some days I don’t. Just like a lot of people. I strive to better myself every day. Whether that means going to the gym even when I don’t feel like it. Or buying a new eyebrow pencil and finally getting the results I’ve been looking for (it’s a girl thing). The point is, you have to work on you everyday. You are a work in progress, and progress never ends. If you want to conquer the world, you have to keep up with it!
How I Live My Life!
