By Erika @iblushbeauty
Hi, friends!
I can't believe that it's already been 4 months since I last blogged...that's crazy! I honestly didn't realize that it's been so long. So to get things started again, let's get reacquainted, shall we? And what better way to do so than through the 50 Random Facts About Me tag! Yes...a list of 50 totally random facts that you may or may not have known about me. Now, don't let this tag fool wasn't as easy as I thought it'd be...50 facts is a lot! And yes...I did feel a little narcissistic dedicating an entire blog post about me...but what's a little narcissism among friends?

6. I am most comfortable in t-shirts and jeans.
7. I’m not good at styling my hair so I usually just keep it straight down.

10. I rarely call my friends by their real name – I always come up with a nickname of some sort.
11. I usually write as if I were speaking (conversationally).
12. I have the strictest and most over protective parents – EVER.
