Where are you located? Arlington, VA
What type of blogger are you? Fashion/Lifestyle
Tell us a bit about your blog (and how long you have been blogging): I’ve been blogging for 2 1/2 years, mainly about my lifestyle of living right outside of Washington DC. A “yuppie” is a young urban professional, so my blog is targeted towards all of my loves that fit in with that life from fashion to adventures in DC & shortly being a parent in the area.
How long have you been a CapFABB member and what is your favorite CapFABB memory? I’ve been a member since January 2012 & my favorite memory was the Juicy Couture event. I’m an introverted person so it’s been great meeting members whose blogs I read & immediately being able to strike up a conversation with them! The Juicy event was smaller but I felt like I really connected with some great bloggers, which to me is the best part of being in CapFABB.
If you could give any advice to other bloggers what would it be? OR what advice are you looking for from other bloggers? Get inspired by other (bigger) bloggers but don’t compare yourself. It is sometimes frustrating if you think your blog isn’t getting enough views or something doesn’t look quite right. It’s good to learn from other bloggers & use that as motivation but your blog should be something you do for fun. Competing & comparing will block you from having fun!
Tell us about yourself… I was born & raised in the Northern VA area, & am now a high school social studies teacher. I spend my days teaching about government & current events, which is probably why I blog about everything but! This August I’m due with my first child so am excited about having a little yuppie baby & exploring a different side of the DC area. And about fitting into my old wardrobe- I REALLY miss my clothes!
Hidden talent or quirky factoid about yourself… My hidden talent is that I sing- I’ve had years of voice lessons. The only problem is I have horrible stage fright & hate singing in front of people, so those years of lessons are only shown off to a very small group of people!
What is your favorite part about living in DC? All the options to explore. My husband & I are big history buffs so it’s great to have so much history around us. We also love going out to nice dinners or seeing a show at the Kennedy Center. On the otherside you can drive an hour to Virginia wine country or up to Annapolis to be by the water. There are just so many things to do no matter what your interests are or point of your life.
