About Me + Why I Blog

After seeing some of my favorite blogging ladies do these posts, I thought it would be a fun idea to do.  I haven't done one of these in a long time and hey, maybe it might be a good idea for you guys to know more about me!

I'm Lindsay and I am 32 (how did that happen!?)  I live in Roseland, New Jersey, right outside of New York City.

I am going to be celebrating my five year anniversary in a couple of weeks and have two crazy kiddos - Avery (5) and Greyson (2).  You can do that math if you would like.  I also have my furbaby, Maggie, my seven year old Maltese and there's a cat (not a cat person.)

I used to work in fashion and retail PR, but after Avery was born started doing freelance PR, event planning and fashion work from home.  After Greyson was born I took on less, but still do a few freelance projects.  I have been tossing the idea around of going back to work full time...

I love working out, fashion, shopping, cooking, spending time with my friends and sports.  I'm a huge baseball and football fan!

Favorite Food
Mexican, pizza and cheese.  Wine?  Does that count as food?

Favorite Color
Pink (kind of a given) and navy blue.

Standard Coffee Order
I would always love a Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf Iced Coffee with French Vanilla powder and soy milk.  Heaven I tell ya.  At Starbucks it is an iced Americano with soymilk and sugar in the raw.

 Standard Bar Order
Extra dirty Tito's Martini or Sauvignon Blanc.

Places I Shop
JCrew, Shopbop, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus and Revolve on the regular.

Bedtime and Wake Up Time
I am usually in bed between 11 and 12 and up around 7.  My kids go to bed far too late at night and no work usually happens until that happens.

Beauty Product I Can't Live Without
Cle de Peau concealer.  Life changing post-children.

What I Blog About
My kids, my life, FASHION, shopping, food 

First Blog I Read
My first reads were The Pink Lou Lou and Designer Bags and Dirty Diapers.  Still love them and read them both!  

How Did I Start Blogging
I wanted to be a writer when I was growing up and worked for years in PR and doing freelance writing.  I wanted to combine my life, my love of writing and my love of fashion into one and this was the perfect outlet.

Why I Blog
I blog for the same reasons I wrote above.  It is a fantastic creative outlet, a great networking tool - I have made so many new friends through it (hi girls!)  and it just makes me happy, plain and simple.  

A little about me for Friday!  Hope you have a fabulous weekend!
