Almost 8 Months Blogging + 50 Facts About Me

Oh my goodness y'all, I honestly cannot believe that I have been blogging for almost 8 months. I started Chic in Carolina at the beginning of March and honestly cannot believe how much my little blog has grown since then! I am so thankful for all my wonderful readers and really can't believe that I have been blogging for this long because it honestly feels like I only started yesterday!

Anyways for all of my newer readers who only recently started following along, welcome! I decided it would be fun to re-introduce myself to y'all by sharing 50 facts about me so y'all can get to "know" me a little bit better!


1. I am a junior in high school

2. I live in the suburbs of Charlotte, North Carolina

3. I've lived in North Carolina for the majority of my life

4. I love where I live and honestly, I would love to live here when I get married and have kids

5. I have a younger brother and a younger sister

6. I'm 5'7

7. I love Cookies and Cream Ice Cream. Okay, I love any ice cream for that matter!

8. I love baking (and eating) sweet treats

9. I wear the same jewelry pretty much every day

10. I love everything and anything pumpkin flavored

11. I eat the same thing everyday for lunch- turkey sandwich, apple slices, rice chips, and a Snapple Half and Half Tea.

13. On that note, I haven't been on an airplane since the 6th grade

14. My favorite holidays are Christmas and Easter

15. I love little kids, they're too cute (the reason I love babysitting)

16. My favorite show is Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill is second!

17. I can be pretty sassy at times

18. If buying too many dresses is wrong, I don't want to be right! I seriously buy a ridiculous amount of dress but I always come up with something to wear them all too!

19. I am extremely indecisive so whenever I go out to eat, I consult everyone with me on what I should get and then typically order the same thing every time

20. I always have my Lilly Pulitzer tumbler full of water with me

21. I wear peal earrings 99% of the time

22. I'm not the biggest fan of breakfast except for pancakes and waffles and bacon

23. I have this really weird hatred for bananas

24. I once told my parents I wanted a jet-ski instead of a car when I turned 16, thank goodness I decided against that #jetskiscantdrivetoschool

25. I am totally guilty of sending ridiculously long hashtags in texts to my friends

26. I love to shop... a lot

27. Last year, I got a superlative in my English class for being the most likely to work at Lilly Pulitzer (insert sassy hand emoji)

28. I want to major in elementary education in college!

29. I cut my hair in the 5th grade into an awful bob.. and I've been growing it out ever since

30. I like to go to bed pretty early (around 10 on school nights) and typically don't stay up later than that unless absolutely necessary

31. Even though my family is from the North, I was raised in the South so I consider myself southern

32. If I was ridiculously rich (a la Gossip Girl), I would get my hair blown out every single day

33. I like to pretend that I'm a good singer but really I'm not

34. My favorite vacations spots are Kiawah Island, South Carolina and my family's lake house in Upstate New York!

35. My golden retriever and I share the same birthday- April 14

36. I am definitely Type-A and like things to perfectly organized

37. Like I have been called the organized one of my friends

38. I only started drinking coffee regularly last year

39. My closet pretty much consists of Lilly prints and navy

40. My favorite piece of jewelry is my mother's monogram ring that I have worn daily since my freshman year of high school

41. I love ordering clothes online because when it arrives it's like a present (that you picked yourself)

42. When I grow up, I want to be a mix of Blair Waldorf, Elle Woods, and Kate Middleton

43. I have a weird love for alliteration so that's why a lot of my blog titles have some form of it
