11 Facts about Upandawayinthestars

One: I am a Cornell University Big Red Bear. Class of Dec. 2015! 

Two: I love DIY projects. I live on researching them, buying the materials, going through the steps, and then sending pics to all of my friends. They are always “excited for me” hahaha.

Three: I am addicted to mac-n-cheese. That’s all that can be said. 

Four: I love Ben n’ Jerry’s Strawberry Cheesecake ice cream. 

Five: I am a recovering anorexic. People feel as if this should be a hidden fact, something that shames me and makes me less of a real, educated person. But yet, an overwhelming majority of today’s young population struggle from eating disorders. And I feel as if people should feel like they’re not alone. 

Six: I walk everywhere. Cornell is a huge campus but its just so “gorges” that the only way I believe to take it all in is to walk everywhere.

Seven: I work for a beauty start-up Poshly.com. It’s a beauty data mining firm that takes answers from questions we ask our users and then we create reports for various beauty brands. It’s so fascinating and I’m glad to be a part of something so innovative. 

Eight: I’m a shopping addict. Everything I see online and in-stores that I love, eventually ends up in my closet. Think “Confessions of a Shopoholic” 2.0 College Edition. 

Nine: Tequila is my favorite type of alcohol to work with when baking desserts. And then Bailey’s.
