Five Facts About Me
Updated: Feb 13, 2018
Hi there! My name is Colleen and I’d love to welcome you to Collectively Colleen, a lifestyle blog. This is my very first post and I figured what better topic than five facts about me! I hope you enjoy learning more about the woman behind the blog and continue to follow along with me.
On this blog, I will be sharing pretty much all of my life. I’ll show you my favorites (my not-so-favorites), my routines, travels I take and things I have learned in my 23 (almost 24) years of living. So without further ado: Collectively Colleen Blog Post #1.
I’m a frenchie fanatic. Anything I see with a french bulldog on it I have to have it. The collection might be getting out of hand (socks, pj pants, salt and pepper shakers…) So when we adopted our frenchie, Leonardo, I just about cried.
I run 4 social media accounts. My own, my company’s, my fiance’s company and of course my frenchie’s. Shameless plug here to follow them all: @CollectivelyColleen, @DavidEdwardFurniture, @NardoAgency and @LeonardotheFrenchie. Social Media is never something I thought I would end up doing as part of my career but honestly I love it!
I’m a morning person. I know it sounds like so awful and you probably think I’m not human, but let me explain! I don’t wake up chipper and bubbly every morning ready to take on the day, I struggle. BUT once I’m up I love getting things accomplished and getting moving early.
I originally wanted to be a wedding photographer. My freshman year of college I was a photography major in art school and desperately wanted to become a wedding photographer! That summer I interned with a wedding photography studio and learned that working late nights and every single day of the week was definitely not what I wanted to do! I still am obsessed with weddings and photography but more as a hobby than a career.
I have wanted to start a blog for numerous years. So this is it, my first blog post. I have been dreaming and wishing and brainstorming how I would start a blog for probably close to four years now. But I could never do it. I always thought it was never the right time, I needed it to be perfect. But the truth is, there’s never a right time for anything and it doesn’t have to be perfect. So as one of my 2018 resolutions, I am officially kicking off Collectively Colleen and hope you keep following along!
