Hello, hello, hello so today I am feeling I want to switch things up because who does not love a little variety. Samantha, founder of The Brunette Blend has nominated me to strip it down on the blog. So, today I am chatting ALL ABOUT ME.
The rules of this tag are to answer the 11 questions that my nominator (The Brunette Blend) asked me!
1. Let’s get this out of the way ASAP. *N Y S Y N C or Backstreet Boys?
Backstreet Boys ALL THE WAY.
And now…I am feeling nostalgic about a classic brother/sister moment growing up. My brother Christian is four years older than me. When I was four years old I loved the Backstreet Boys, I think it was the first time I fell in love with boy singers. My freshy older brother did a great job at convincing his gullible baby sister that the Back Street Boys peed their pants, therefore I should no longer be a super fan. Congrats Christian, I was convinced and from that moment forward, I believed the Backstreet Boys were not so cool and they lost a super fan.
2. Has your blog changed directions since you started?
TheEmpowerist continues to grow everyday, but the mission: To empower others to consistently tap into their limitless potential, follow their passions and live life authentically – remains the same.
At a very young age, I discovered the power of limitless potential. We are all exposed to a moment where we realize our potential at some moment in our life and I want to inspire other’s to discover their potential as quickly as they possibly can! When you discover your potential, you consistently empower yourself to bring value, speak unapologetically and live life authentically. The best part is, you are happy.
3. Who inspires you to be better?
My mom inspires me to be better everyday because she consistently encourages me to follow my dreams and take action towards accomplishing my goals. No matter what my dream is, she has always encouraged me to keep on keeping on and has supported me along the way. The relationship my mom and I share is unlike any other and I will never, ever take it for granted.
4. What is one thing you couldn’t live without?
Getting real here…one thing I could not live without at the moment is Peppermint Orbit Gum. So weird but SO true, anyone who knows me will tell you. There is something about the freshness of the mint that helps me focus when I am working. I love it and there is no shame.
5. What is your social media platform of choice?
Instagram – I love the engagement aspect, I also love how you can discover places to travel to and visit as well as following people who inspire me.
6. What is the first thing you do in the morning?
Drink a warm glass of lemon water and write down that moment’s gratitude and intentions for the day ahead of me.
7. What have you learned from blogging?
Blogging has taught me the power of connection. Connecting with others and collaborating with the intention of optimizing a mission can go so far. Through blogging, I also learn so much from others which I appreciate because I live by an always be learning mindset.
8. What was the last photo you took?
The last photo I took is a picture of my avocado toast! SO GOOD. It is the first time I have every had this bread it’s paleo, gluten free & super high in protein. If you are looking for a new healthy bread check it out here and it is on sale!!!
9. What movie do you quote on a regular basis?
To be honest, I do not quote any movies on a regular basis! It’s just not me, that is mostly because I do not watch movies all that often, I just don’t have time lately. But, I do enjoy a great movie night so…with that being said if you have any recommendations DM me on IG or comment below. A movie night sounds great with a little dark chocolate, a candle and some suav.
10. What is one of your beauty tips or hacks?
Every night, wash your face with a warm wash cloth and take off ALL of your make up. Moisturize with coconut oil or argan oil. At the moment, it is my fountain of youth and it works.
11. What are the three things that ALWAYS make it into your grocery cart?
Greek yogurt (love a variety), fuji apples & Grapefruit La Croix seltzers. Always.
