Yeah, I Know. I’m Awesome.


No, really I am. Lol. Just kidding…not really. Anyway, I thought it might be nice for my followers to learn a little bit more about me.

Here are 15 things about me that you may not know.

How tall are you?

I’m 5’2″ but I like to round up to 5’3″. Lol. Yes, I need a stool or ladder to reach the top shelf. If I don’t have one then I begin to climb the counter tops. I’m willing to risk an injury to get what I need off of the top shelf. I don’t know why people put things up so high.


What color and style is your hair?

My hair is natural blonde and is shoulder length with side bangs. Here’s a pic of me as a baby to prove it’s natural!

What color are your eyes?

A deep steel blue color. I get complimented on my eyes a lot. In fact, they are my favorite body part, besides my hair.


What is your fashion style?

Comfy casual which you can view here. My true style emerges more in the fall. You can follow my fall fashion board here.

Where do you live?

I live in the most beautiful city in the world, to me at least, Chicago! I love how there is so much to do and you can practically never get bored. Since, I get bored very easily.


Do you have siblings?

Yes, I have a goofball brother. He is three years younger than me. When we were younger we would butt heads a lot. In a lot of ways I feel responsible for him. Since our dad was always away for work I had to look after him a lot. He is now in trade school to be a welder.

I'm Esmeralda and my brother is Casper.

What college did you go to?

I went to Loyola University Chicago and studied journalism. I minored in theatre. Yes, my dad yelled at me when I told him. Apparently, Loyola is the greenest university in the midwest according to the countless ads I see on recycling bins in the city.


What are your favorite TV shows?

Smallville is my life. I enjoy Supernatural, America’s Next Top Model, any crime or drama TV show. Any show that can keep me hooked and interested I love. I tend to steer clear of a lot of reality TV or competition shows because after a while I get bored with the drama.


What is your dream job?

To be an investigative journalist for the Chicago Tribune. Not a news broadcaster but like print/web.  One can hope and pray, right?


If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?

Honestly? I would go backpacking throughout Europe if I could. I would love to take two months off and just go. My dad calls it that gypsy feeling.


Who is your favorite fictional character?

I am actually a female version of Dean Winchester. I’m a huge tomboy. I love whiskey and burgers. I blame it on growing up amongst guys and my dad being a high ranking officer in the Army.


Plus, my car is my baby. She is legit my pride and joy.

A quote that you feel fits you well?


What is your favorite scent?

Oh, that’s a tough one. I love the smell of apple pie. I know this is probably an awful thing to say but you know that Axe Dark Temptation? I used to spray it onto my pillow at night because I love the scent so much. (Take notes men. lol.)


What is your favorite band?

Hands down AC/DC!!!! I blame my dad. He used to play classic rock on the way to school every morning and when he would pick us up. I fell in love with the raspy vocals, the awesome guitars, the beat, everything. It’s a deal breaker for me if a guy hates AC/DC.


They are coming to play at Wrigley Field this September, which happens to be my birthday month, and I wanna see them sooooo bad! Tickets are super expensive though so me seeing them won’t happen. Which sucks, cause this is one of their last concerts.


What’s your favorite season?

Fall. The reason being that my favorite holiday is Halloween. My best friend and I have a tradition. Every year we go to Statesville Haunted Prison. Unfortunately, we’ve become desensitized to the whole experience. We still love it though nonetheless.


My bestie and me.
