my favorite things

So I decided to write a blog post about a few of my favorite things. I figure it might help you, the reader, to get to know me better. Or it could just bore you to death. Either way, I’ll probably write more posts like this in the future because that’s just how I roll.

First up – I have recently discovered a love for Chick-fil-A. I never knew what all the fuss was about surrounding that place. I mean, it’s just chicken right?! Nothing special about that. Well, until recently I had no idea what I was missing out on. The food is super yummy but my favorite thing about Chick-fil-A is their customer service!! It’s SO hard to find places that have really awesome customer service but this place rocks it to the core! I am always amazed at how friendly and helpful their staff is anytime I walk into that place. It’s amazing!! I loooove that their staff takes pride in their jobs. It humbles me and reminds me how important it is to always work hard and be diligent in everything I do. Major points to Chick-fil-A! Mikey and I eat there at least once a week now and I’ll be quite honest… I secretly hate my fellow photographer friend Bobby Earle a little because he recently won free Chick-fil-A for a year for sleeping there overnight! NO FAIR!!!

Secondly – I am not much of a TV person. I have a hard time sitting still long enough to find something decent to watch. I always feel like I’d rather be spending my time doing something more productive even though I will admit that watching TV is definitely relaxing! However there is this one show that I just luuuurrve. If you follow me on Twitter then you’ll already know that it’s Grey’s Anatomy. I have been watching that show since it’s very first episode and have been hooked ever since. I just love it and I’m super pumped about the season premiere this Thursday! Holllla! Is John Doe really George?? Or is it not?? OMG the suspense is killing me!!!

And last but definitely not least — I have always been super intrigued by Kat Von D. She is a tattoo artist in L.A. and the star of L.A. Ink. I admire her as an artist but mostly as a dreamer and business woman. She is super ambitious, talented and truly follows her dreams. People like that inspire me. She recently came out with her own line of makeup and fragrances that I have fallen in love with!! I have never been much of a makeup girl, but that was mostly because I have always struggled with knowing how to apply makeup and make it look good! I have tried so many different brands of makeups (eyeshadows specifically) and have always had the hardest time with all of them. Until Kat’s makeup that is. I bought her eyeshadows and brushes and they have completely rocked my world! I honestly couldn’t say enough good stuff about it. It is so easy to apply, and the eyeshadows blend so easily. They don’t get caked up or splotchy and here is the best part — it lasts almost all day long! I kid you not, I’ll apply a few blended colors in the morning and by 5pm it still looks awesome! I was shocked by that! This is all coming from a girl who seriously is not gifted with the makeup! I’m so excited about all the fun looks I will be able to create with her eyeshadows. YAY! Her stuff is awesome and you can find all of Kat Von D’s products at Sephora!

And that’s just a few of my favorite things for now! Happy Tuesday!
