A Little Bit About Myself...

Hi! My name is Brittany and I'm ridiculously addicted to sparkles.

In fact, I claim it as my favorite color. Many have tried to argue with me by telling me sparkles is NOT a color, to which I simply reply: "If I were to be shown the color blue and the color sparkly blue, and I chose the sparkly blue as the better of the two than the only difference would be the addition of sparkles and I would therefore conclude sparkles to be the defining attribute and therefore my favorite color."

I'm a math major working as an engineer and surrounded by boys & technology all day long - therefore this BLOG is dedicated to everything else in my life ::Fashion, Fitness, Food & Fun::

Wants? To travel internationally, to meet Jillian Michaels (seriously love her!!!), and to be styled by Rachel Zoe (would be ba-na-nas!).

I've had a few hardships regarding love & health, but don't like to dwell on the past.  I truly believe what defines you is how you deal with and move on from a situation - those who stay positive become stronger and happier people. 

That being said, in the past few years I've really put a focus on integrating more positivity into my life and this includes taking better care of myself.  Having a heart condition {slight regurgitation in the tri-cuspid valve}, weaker-than-average lungs from a severe case of Bronchitis Senior year of high school and refusing to stay home from dance practice {hey! I had a solo!}, and already having had surgery once on my legs for poor circulation may make it difficult for me to run - but I've come to *love* running with a passion.  It's me time, it's de-stressing, it gives you crazy endorphins, it teaches you to push yourself and to believe in yourself.  So even though I may not be the fastest runner, nor the longest distance runner, I'm continually improving and I'm happy with that. 

I've also become obsessed with healthy cooking!  NO I am not a gourmet chef by any means -- in fact, up until after I graduated college I was proud to call myself the microwave queen!  But a new outlook on life, healthy living, and more time now that I'm not studying for exams all hours of the night means I can google recipes online and try to whip them up in my kitchen every so often! 

I created this blog as a way to share my interests with others and would love to hear yours -- I believe you can learn so much from connecting with others!

Hope you enjoy the blog :)
