Today’s featured blogger is the lovely Erin of Currently Coveting. Take it away, Erin!
Tell us a bit about your blog (and how long you have been blogging):
I started “Currently Coveting” in 2010 because I consider myself a girl with many creative hobbies and I was starved for an outlet for them after college when I entered the mundane workforce. My site has really been a fun way for me to stay excited about life as an adult. In the very beginning, its purpose was to document all the details of parties I was throwing myself into planning. Now, the content is mainly fashion and food focused. I really enjoy having a place to put the bits of what I consider “sparkle” from my life into the spotlight.
How long have you been a CapFABB member and what is your favorite CapFABB memory?
I have been a CapFABB member for about a year and a half and I think my favorite memory would have to be the Rent the Runway event last July. I met so many great bloggers there!
If you could give any advice to other bloggers what would it be? OR what advice are you looking for from other bloggers?
It would be to stay true to yourself. It’s easy to lose your voice and personal preferences in the sea of perfectly Pinterest-y blogs out there.
Tell us about yourself…
I was born a Jersey girl but now live in Arlington, VA. I worked briefly as a makeup artist for Bobbi Brown before I realized I was uncomfortable completely abandoning my Bachelors of Science, so now I work in the corporate world, which is why most of my outfits showcased here are office appropriate. I don’t consider myself any kind of fashion or cooking expert. I simply showcase what I’m currently cooking, wearing, or “coveting.”
If I had to describe myself in one paragraph it would go something like this: average girl with simple style that loves high heels, baking pretty things for her favorite people, overly obsessed with her cat, lover of any recipe involving cream cheese, girls night aficionado, nail polish & mascara hoarder, craft-doer, holiday enthusiast, great bargain finder, and party planner.
Hidden talent or quirky factoid about yourself…
I love science books, performing rap songs at karaoke bars, and if I could eat jalapeño potato chips with every meal, I would.
What is your favorite part about living in DC?
I love living close enough to a city that is always changing and popping up with new places to try out while still having the comforts of a smaller town where you can walk into your favorite local watering hole and know five people there. The DC area is the best of both worlds!
