So, BALM has officially surpassed the one year mark (yay!) and it’s finally hitting me – how well have we actually gotten to know each other? Sure, by now, I know you guys have accepted my addiction to warm, fluffy, donuts and you’re probably okay with the fact that there’s no shame in my selfie game, but what’s really going on behind the surface? So glad you asked.
Underneath the layers of “brunch because mimosas” t-shirts and printed joggers, I’m just your average 25 year old living in the South Shore at home with Mom and Dad. Super glamorous – I know – but hey, Sallie Mae has no mercy when it comes to those college loans *cue Rihanna: bitch better have my money*. Against my better judgement, let’s throw out another song title pun and do a little 21 questions.
current netflix series binge: Dexter
favorite thing to make in the kitchen: reservations (sort of kidding but not really). i actually do enjoy cooking, i just never have the time these days! when i do, the italian in me is always whipping up different pasta recipes
can’t stop listening to: let it go – james bay. otherwise known as james bae according to me.
biggest pet peeve: people who don’t own their mistakes. i’m human, you’re probably human – fess up when you mess up and let’s move on
shoe of choice: peep toe bootie, hands down
OPI go-to: Lincoln Park After Dark for fall/winter; I Cannoli Wear OPI for spring/summer
most frequently used snapchat filter: the puppy!
#1 emoji: unicorn aka my spirit animal
blogger inspo: jacey duprie – damselindior
where you’ll find me this summer: if i’m not visiting Portland, Maine for the weekend, i’ll be at The Range Bar & Grille in Hingham. i picked up a second job here but i’m so obsessed with the place i spend my days off outside on the patio.
rando fun fact: i’m a recent vegetarian. the thought of meat freaks me out. i tried the whole vegan thing but: CHEESE. i stay away as much as i can but i do have my moments of weakness
silver vs. gold: gold because honestly for some reason i feel like it makes me look tanner – this is quite possibly wishful thinking
birthstone: aquamarine (mark you calendars for 3/23 people #ariesbabies)
celeb bff for the day: tie between jessie james decker and selena gomez
favorite thing i own: does my dog count? i have a 12 y/o toy american eskimo – she’s the furriest, sweetest girl in the universe and makes my heart melt
Alright, I think we covered the basics. So not to disappoint you 50 cent, but I think I am going to stop here at 15 before this sounds like it’s turning into a desperate dating add.
This past year has been filled with fun and I’m one lucky gal to have my BP by my side through it all. Just when I think that the day is never ending, I blink and suddenly a week, month, year, has gone by. We took a minute to slow things down from this whirlwind called life and got some much needed QT in just last week. This pretty much consisted of closet raiding, sushi and a photo shoot on the waterfront. I channeled my inner 90s child and broke out the tattoo necklace and went for comfort in my fave tom-girl jeans.
My soul is happy <3
