11 Fun Facts About the Muse


In case you wanted to learn more about me...well, here it goes!

First, I must thank Diana from The World Around Her for tagging me in this awesome post. (Diana, you know you're one of my all-time faves!).
*FYI - you should read my answers...they're pretty good (toot, toot).

1. If you could meet anyone in the world, living or dead, who would that person be?
Is it weird if I say that I don't really want to meet anyone? What if I meet them and then they suck as a person and I'm forever disappointed? But if I have to answer, I suppose it would be cool to meet my mom back when she was like 26. I didn't know her then so I'd like to see what she was like when she was my age.

2. Why did you start blogging?
I get this one all the time. I started the Muse because I have a degree in journalism and no one wanted to pay me for it. So I started to write on here because this was an outlet where I could say whatever I wanted, and eventually it turned into this gorgeous fashion mecca that you see before you.(RHOA: Making it Rain)
3. If you became extremely rich by winning the lottery would you help people from your past that popped up again?
If I were extremely rich then I would definitely help relatives who popped up out of the blue. As far as ex-friends go, the jury is out on that one. I'd rather give the money to people who are deserving of it and who need it more. Honestly, I would just give it to the poor, my family, my close friends, and use the rest to pay bills so that the only thing I had to work on was my genius...aka, my blog.

4. From when we were little girls till we are grown women we dream of future baby names, what are some that you thought of?
I have a list...a long list, but I don't want to reveal them. Not because they are as crazy as Audio Science and Pilot Inspektor, but because I don't want any of you stealing them from me! I will tell you that my family has a tradition of giving their kids 'C' names so I'm definitely going that route.5. On that note, would you be upset if a friend took your future kid's name that you really loved and wanted to use if she had a baby first?
See! This is exactly what I was talking about in question #4. My friend can't take the name because she'll never hear it. But if for some reason she has the same name idea, then I will just quietly change the name I was thinking of and none would be the wiser.

6. Do you have any tattoos or would like to get any, if so what are they?
Yes and yes. I have 2 -- the first was senior year of college and it's a pisces symbol with hearts. The second was a year after I graduated college and it's butterflies on the back of my neck. I'd like to get a third down the right side of my torso--thinking about words instead of images this time. The hubs won't get a tattoo because he's afraid of needles. I mean, puked in a bucket when we first started going out, afraid.7. Are you obsessed or do you like to follow the life and career of any celebrities?
No. I don't have to elaborate, right? I mean, I think Ryan Gosling is gorgeous, and I would love to have his babies and name them Pilot Inspektor, but I'm not obsessed.

8. Do you collect anything; i.e. dolls, collectables, animal objects, etc?
I used to collect butterfly memorabilia until everyone found out that I did this and started to buy me all things butterflies for any special occasion. I have butterfly pajamas, bath towels, curtains, slippers, etc. It's intense. So I switched to all things Nightmare Before Christmas. Feel free to send me your Jacks & Sallys.

9. How many states have you been to, do you have a favorite other than the one you live in?
17. I live in California now, but I grew up in Florida so that state still holds a special place in my heart. I do find it interesting that when I look at my North America map, I don't have any pins in the middle America states. Am I missing out? There could be so much to see and do in South Dakota that I will never experience. If you're from middle America, please let me know and tell me all there is to do there.10. When you were little what was your dream career, has that come true or changed?
I think I wanted to be a singer when I was younger, specifically, Aaliyah. And no, that dream has not yet come true, although I do plan on putting up a video of me singing on YouTube some day. That seems to be the new way to get noticed in the industry. But I think I would rather be a magazine boss. Not an editor or an owner...just a boss. I want to be the person who tells other people at the fashion mag what to do without having to do anything myself. Maybe that is the editor.

11. Do you have any secret talents or quirks that you don't tell a lot of people about?
I can crack my wrists nonstop, but I tell everyone about that stupid human trick. Oh, and I can sing too. I can actually sing while cracking my wrists nonstop--it's amazeballs!
So did you learn anything interesting about me? I hope so, because I had a lot of fun writing this. If you want to answer 11 or so questions of your own, then please do. I'm tagging all the muses!
