5 Things You May Not Know About Me

People constantly ask me what my blog is about, so I thought today would be a good day to open up about me, and MN blog. I'm going to get a little personal on the blog today and share 5 things you may not know about me. When I really started blogging I just kind of threw myself in it as fast as I could, like a hamster jumping onto a spinning hamster wheel.  I definitely had no clue what I was doing, and I wasn't going in the same direction on the blog when I first started, that i'm going in now. I had never been on any social media channels prior to blogging, and it's only been about 7-8 months since I started focusing, solely, on MN blog. I'm still learning the ropes to every aspect of being a full time blogger and how social media works, at the same time. One thing I do know now for sure, the challenges I face everyday no longer scare me anymore. I've accepted that it takes time and that being open to growth can be a good thing. My main goal for my personal blog is, that it's an authentic reflection of myself, my style, my taste, my home, my life...With that being said, I find it very important to follow and engage with fellow bloggers. I, personally, feed off of  other bloggers almost everyday. I literally can be inspired by the littlest thing I see, from the color of a pair of pants, the background in a photo, or even a candle...Though there may be so many similar blogs today, we are all so different. Each blog is unique to that individual. Without each other though, I don't think we would be as creative, as individuals. I am so glad I got the guts to actually enter into the realm of blogging (two years after I created MN). Man is it a hard hustle though. However, as long as I keep looking forward, i'm down to call myself a blogger. Whoever says blogging is easy needs to be punched in the face. Just kidding, that's Mike rubbing off on me. I don't promote violence unless it's self defense. Your already learning so much about me and I haven't even told you the 5 things you may not know about me! So let's get to it shall we.... 
5 Things You May Not Know About Me:
1. I'm engaged to be engaged, to be married, to Mike Perera. He is 11 years older than me, but still a spring chicken in my eyes.We have been together for over 5 years. Mike is from South Louisiana and he has two sons and a daughter. So yes, I am a stepmom, and we are grandparents. I think I want be called, 'GlamMaw'. He's the best thing that ever happened to me, i'm totally obsessed with him and he is so stuck with me. Love you baby!
2. I am biracial. My mother is Caucasian and my father is African American. 
3. I was a dental assistant for 8 1/2 years before blogging "full time". 
4. I don't like wearing makeup and I don't like styling my hair. I feel like I look like a clown when I wear make up. However, i'm so fascinated with the idea of makeup. I keep it simple, with only mascara, concealer, blush and, 90% of the time, aquaphor for the lips. I have soooo much hair, it's long and naturally curly, that it's too much of a task. Which is why I do not like doing it. 
5. I have 2 sisters (3 if we are counting my best friend) and 1 brother. Both sister's are older, 1 is my half sister and the other is 11 months older than me. I have 3 handsome nephews from my sister's. 

There you have it guys! Now you know just a little more about the girl behind MN blog. Hope your week is going swell. What's going on with your weekend plans? Anything exciting to look forward too? Tomorrow is Friday! Have questions, leave a comment. Until next time loves....

Cheers,
