A Look Into My Life

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
I thought this would be fun way for my readers to get a sneak peek into who I am. I have included many questions that you asked me and also a few of my own facts and tidbits.

1. Where are you from?  I live in the Bay Area of California. I grew up here but have also lived in San Luis Obispo and Los Angeles, CA. I love it here. There are so many places to explore and the weather is great!
2. What do you do career wise? I am the Director of Recruiting for a financial services firm. I hire financial advisors. My job is rewarding and I love the control I have over my work, but I created the  blog so I could have an outlet for my other passions.
3. What do you do for fun? When I am not working I usually am training at Crossfit or spending time with my boyfriend and friends. We all love wine and one of our favorite things to do is to go wine tasting.

4. What is you biggest fashion pet peeve? I hate how quickly something is "in" and then "out" and you are required to spend your life savings to keep up. I believe in wearing any trend at anytime and having fun with it.
5. What is the store you shop at most? This one is tough. I shop everywhere. I tend to shop at Nordstrom, Forever 21, and Urban Outfitters a lot.

6. When did you start doing Crossfit? I have always enjoyed being active. In school I played water polo and after that I tried everything like spinning, yoga, Pilates, half marathons, and triathlons. It wasn't until I met my boyfriend that I really learned about Crossfit and got into it. I was skeptical at first and quickly realized that is was the best work out I had ever been through and I was hooked. 
7. Who’s your favorite designer? Choose 1! And why? That is so hard. I can't truly answer. However, someone in my top 5 is Stella McCartney. She designs clothes that are so versatile and are made for real women!
 8. What camera do you use? I used to use a Cannon point and shoot (when I started the blog) and for the last 8 months I was borrowing a Cannon Rebel that I loved. I am getting the Nikon D60 with a 50 mm f 1/4 lens soon (sorry Leah). 
9. What is the main goal of your blog? I have messed around on here so much and that is ok, because this is for me and something for me to enjoy. I like fashion so it will always be primarily geared to fashion, style, shopping and tips. However, it has elements of a lifestyle blog because I like to share things about me and things I love.

Hahaha! You are a traitor. Why oh why? Just kidding! I always say it's not the equipment but the person using the equipment that matters.

If you need more recruits for financial advisers, I have a few friends working as independent contractors in the field of financial risk management. You can add them in your list. Shameless plugging I know.

PS... Let's go wine tasting when I go back to Cali. My sister lives in the Bay Area too. xoxo

Love to hear that you do Crossfit! I do as well. I only started about a month ago but it is by far the best, most engaging, and most fun workout I've ever done. It rules. :)

I love Crossfit. Just got into it last Spring to improve my 5k time. It's the best workout I've ever had. Yoga is a very close second. It's so wonderful to learn more about you. I love your blog. So psyched to have found it!

ps. I love the bay area, I go there all the time for family, the vineyards are gorgeous and the shopping and exploring is fantastic!

Lainey said...

This was really nice...I may want to use formspring now because my commenters' questions tend to be all over the place and then I forget about the question, but this is good so that all of the questions are in the same place. Very convenient. I always love getting to know more about the bloggers I read. :)

[b]IGO8 Европа[/b]

* Удобное в работе многоязычное меню
* Планирование маршрута с большим количеством промежуточных пунктов и быстрой оптимизацией
* Интерактивные двух- и трехмерные карты
* Детальные высококачественные карты
* Голосовые команды на русском и английском языках

iGO8 - одна из лучших систем 3D-навигации для КПК на сегодняшний день. Главная особенность новой версии - трехмерные изображения зданий, рельефа местности и других объектов. Программа позволяет поворачивать карту на 360 градусов для более удобного отображения на экране навигатора Вторая необычная особенность - возможность использовать навигацию вне дорог общего пользования, на велосипедах, снегоходах, мотоциклах, на яхтах, катерах, в походах. Другая важная новинка, измененное меню программы. Теперь можно выбрать «экспертный режим» с множеством настроек или режим для «новичков», который очень облегчает использование программы неподготовленным пользователем. Поиск по адресу тоже был сильно изменен, он стал проще и более удобен, клавиатура стала отображаться более логично и как пункт назначения теперь можно выбрать, например, «центр города». Новый голосовой синтез речи позволит навигатору подсказать голосом название улицы, на которую надо свернуть.Существенное усовершенствование - программное обеспечение может теперь искать POI («точки интереса») на запланированном маршруте и даже предложить, как добраться до объекта и расстояние до него. Навигатор даже укажет ближайший вход и выход для мест с несколькими входами. Появилась возможность импортировать POI (в формате CSV), а также загружать базу предупреждений о камерах измерения скорости. Система успешно справляется с ролью штурмана, предупреждая водителя о необходимых поворотах с помощью голосовых сообщений (в том числе корректно проговаривает названия улиц). Кроме того, iGO8 располагает встроенным аудио и видеоплеером. Режим VGA высокого разрешения с различными цветовыми схемами и совершенный интерфейс пользователя обеспечат незабываемое удобство просмотра карты и навигации.
