one / introduce yourself

The blog-tember challenge is a fun, daily blogging challenge created by the
lovely Bailey Jean of Brave Love blog. Today is DAY ONE: Introduce yourself however you like! Pics, collage, vlog, your choice!


hello there beautiful people!

I am so excited to be doing this challenge again! I have missed blogging so much *crying sad face emoji*
Last year, while doing this challenge, I became way more confident and practiced with blogging and I made some AMAZING and supportive friends.
So I figured I could expect the same things out of it this time as well.
LET’S BE FRIENDS EEEEE   😀

IMG_2259(i just changed my hairs again…LAVENDER<3)

my name is britney

(if your couldn’t tell by my blog name hehe) and it is sooo nice to meet you!
I am 24 and I was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada and I have no plans of leaving any time soon because all my family and all my in-laws live here!
I’m super sarcastic (in a nice way), I WAY over-exaggerate, like, ever day of my entire life and I laugh at my own jokes cause I’m HILARIOUS. I’m sure you’ll think I am too   😉
I really really really love instagram and pinterest
let me follow you!! (it’s not creepy I swear!! hahahaha)

IMG_2261     IMG_2262

I’m the INFJ personality type which means that I am an extroverted introvert which makes ABSOLUTELY little sense I’m sure.

Basically, I love being around people and talking lots, but I also have to chillax and re-charge after a long day with the people.
Which is basically my job. LOTS OF PEOPLE. and I LOVE IT. but then…no.

my job(s)

I am a licensed hairstylist and makeup artist and I LOVE making people feel beautiful in their own skin whether it’s a guest at the salon with a fresh color or cut or a bride on her wedding day ❤
NOW I am also an instructor at the Paul Mitchell School in Las Vegas    🙂
So far it is one of the most rewarding things I have ever done in my life! I have such a passion for helping, inspiring, and teaching others and when a student tells me that I have personally helped them in ANY way it just makes my whole day LIFE.

my passions

When I’m not beautifying people, I’m beautifying THINGS. My main squeeze is sewing but I’ve basically tried every other craft known to man or WILL try every craft known to man.
I am a HUGE NERD. Disney, Star Wars, Harry Potter, Marvel, Unicorns, Fairies…I just love all the magical things.
I REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY LIKE FOOD…mainly DESSERTS. Mmmmmmmmm…
I love netflix and movies (but not scary ones) and I love reading, though I’m sad to say I haven’t read an actual book for fun in a while…

my family

Family is the most important thing to me in the world.
And my hubby is at the top of that list. I have been married for about three and a half years and it has been the best thing ever. I say that a lot about a lot of things but I SERIOUSLY mean it. Being married to Brodie is the best part of my life. He is so kind and funny and he always makes me feel loved!

So that’s about it for now.
I would LOVE to get to know you more.
Even if we have or haven’t talked much please tell me about yourself! It’ll be nice to check in   🙂
AND please feel free to jump in the challenge at any time!

Interview with Flowers and Wanderlust

Hey there lovely people!

I am so happy to share something exciting with you today!

Samantha over at Flowers and Wanderlust invited me to be a part of her
NOT ORDINARY SOULS: INTERVIEWS WITHIN” series over on her blog!

interview screenshot

It was so much fun to do and it turned out so amazing!! Her series is really amazing because she comes up with unique questions to ask and after she gets the answers to the first unique set of questions, she asks more personalized ones to get to know the person even more in depth! She also puts her own insights about their answers and talks about what kind of soul and person deep down she thinks the person is. It truly is a gift of hers to see the individual for who they are and who they strive to be

In my case, I think she has me down to a T. I am striving to be a certain person in life and I want to be seen a certain way, and to read her words about who she thinks I am…It makes me want to cry tears of joy and makes me want to pump my fist “The Breakfast Club” style!

I would love for you to read it and get to know me a little more! And i would love to get to know you more! Please tell me if you read it and what you think!

You can read my interview here!
