After watching a ton of YouTube videos and reading Blog/Instagram posts, I decided I should do the 20 facts about me tag. I absolutely loved learning about all of you so I hope you enjoy this! Lets just jump right in……

  1. My name is Vanessa not beautyproductsaremycardio – lol!
  2. I grew up in Elmwood Park a suburb right outside of Chicago and the home of the best Italian Beef  the Chicago area has to offer but if you ask my Husband he will tell you I am bias. Whatever!
  3. My Husband and I met in Children’s Theater class at Northeastern Illinois University 12 years ago.
  4. I am mostly Italian and my husband is Palestinian. We have two kids. Our daughter is 3 and our son is 10 months
  5. My Bachelors and Masters Degree are both in Communications and I studied Flamenco Dance as my minor.
  6. My passion for dance started at the age of 9. I have studied Jazz, Tap, Ballet, Modern, Belly Dancing and Flamenco
  7.  I was allowed to wear makeup off the stage at the age of 12. My mom took me to the drugstore the summer going into Jr. High. We bought mainly Cover Girl. To this day if I open a Cover Girl blush the smell instantly brings me back to that moment.
  8. For my 16th Birthday I was introduced to MAC by receiving a black MAC makeup bag filled with blush, eyeliner, lipliner and lipglass.  Our relationship is now almost 20 years strong!
  9. Blush is my ultimate beauty weakness. I believe this obsession started because as a dancer my mom would tell me I need more blush for the stage….like ALL THE TIME. So I started to experiment with blush and the rest is history (picture evidence below HA)
  10. I worked in Disney World for a college internship and it changed me forever. If you are in college you MUST look into this program. I worked Retail in Magic Kingdom.
  11. Family is EVERYTHING!!!!
  12. Audrey Hepburn is my style icon.

  14. I am an Academic Advisor by day and taught Public Speaking for 5 years at a Community College here in Chicago.
