Twenty Four Facts

I haven't done a post in a while that lets you get to know me a little bit better.  I thought in honor of my 24th Birthday last Friday it would be fun to share 24 random facts about myself so that you can get to know the girl behind The Blush Blonde.

1. I have never dyed my hair and it actually used to be lighter when I was a kid!
2. I could eat Italian food everyday and never get sick of it.
3. I have a lot of food allergies, and well allergies in general.  As far as food goes I'm fructose intolerant, lactose intolerant, wheat intolerant, have an anaphylactic allergy to tree nuts, and have a list of other foods that trigger my Crohn's Disease.  Eating is not always easy and sometimes I do cheat (mostly with wheat because it's what I'm least allergic to!), but I make it work and thankfully I love to cook!
4. I've recently gotten really into the 'Documentary' section on Netflix and have watched way too many over the past few weeks.
5. I have a terrible of habit of eating late night snacks in bed before I go to sleep.
6. I love crime drama television shows.
7. I am a major beauty product hoarder.
8. I am a founding member of my sorority.
9. Villanova (where I go to school) was my top choice college.
10. I do not know what I want to do after I graduate and I graduate in May.
11. I am very, very close with my immediate family.
12. Fall is my favorite season because of the weather.
13. Champagne is my drink of choice.
14. I'm terrible at dealing with my feelings.
15. I love my iPad, but when it comes to magazines I prefer the real thing to the digital version; in my opinion there's nothing like the feel and smell of a fashion magazine.
16. I wear leggings way more then I would care to admit to.
17. I was really sick in high school and was mostly home instructed instead of going to school.
18. I went to Greece in 2014 and visited Athens, Mykonos, and Santorini.
19. I am not a morning person at all.
20. My most recent purchases have been from Sephora.
21. My favorite music is late 90s/early 2000s pop (Britney Spears, *NSYNC, etc.).
22. One of my biggest pet peeves is people who don't know the difference between your and you're.
23. The number one place I want to travel to is Paris.
24. I'm not really an ice cream person, but when the craving strikes chocolate chip mint is my favorite flavor.

Now that you know more about me, I'd love to hear more about you below!

  1. Happy Belated Birthday! I love learning more about people. How great of you to overcome all your allergies and love to cook--I'm sure it was tough at first! Never dyed your hair?! That's awesome- I have a friend like that too. I was a daredevil and dyed mine the first time in 8th grade while a babysitter was watching us--hahaha

  2. I love facts post like this! That is such a great picture, I love all the bright colors! I'm terrible at snacking right before bed, something I need to get better about for sure! So jealous you have visited Greece, it is definitely on my travel list.
