*cues Jay-Z*  Allow me to reintroduce myself.  My name is Tamara, T to the A, M…Oh!  Hello, there!  If this is your first time reading Blitz And Glam, welcome!  Sit.  Have a look around.  Hopefully, you'll find something that you like.  If you're a long time reader, welcome back!  I thought that I would dedicate an entire post to sharing some fun/crazy/interesting facts about me, so let's jump into it…

 

  1. I've lived in Charlotte longer than I've lived anywhere since I graduated from high school in 1997 (5+ years and counting now).  After leaving the nest (Florence, Alabama), I lived in Birmingham, New Orleans, Baltimore/DC area, Atlanta, and now Charlotte.  
  2. I have a fear of texture and patterns.  
  3. I have a forehead dimple.
  4. When I say that I read a book, these days it most likely means that I listened to the audiobook.
  5. I have Type 2 diabetes (I like to think that I change people's opinions about what Type 2 diabetes looks like).
  6. Two of my newest hobbies are photography and cycling.
  7. I would love to do a cross-country road trip.
  8. I don't eat "red" candy.
  9. My family calls me Tami.
  10. I can't ride with the car doors unlocked.
  11. I'm scared of birds.
  12. My blogging career actually started back in 2008 or 2009.  I was a contributor to a popular blog called Working Girl.  It was started by two 20 somethings who had moved to NYC and they chronicled their Working Girl lives in the city.  It was great (just thinking about it makes me want to do some of that style of blogging here)!  When they wanted to add a few contributor from around the country, I jumped at the chance and applied.  Everyone was anonymous and went by a Working Girl name.  I guess since the blog is defunct, I can reveal that I was Lawyer Working Girl.
  13. Before I became a lawyer I wanted to be a teacher, marine biologist, sports reporter, orthopedic surgeon, Congresswoman, model…somehow after all of that, I ended up as a lawyer.  
  14. I want to visit every state in the U.S.  I've got 29 more to go (if I've only been in the airport in that state, I don't count it).
  15. I watch TV with closed captioning on.  
  16. I've been trying to become fluent in sign language for years.
  17. I took my first swim lessons in my late 20s.  I still consider myself a beginner swimmer, but I plan to take more lessons eventually. 

 

Now, it's your turn.  Do your own facts post or share something interesting in the comments below!

    First time reader here, so Hi!

    I also watch tv with closed captioning on. In fact, I will sometimes miss what’s actually being said because I’m reading the ridiculously wrong captioning. Makes for better tv in my opinion.

    Fact about me: I have a big forehead that seems to be getting bigger with age. I like to think it’s because my brain is growing with all the new things I learn daily. I refuse to believe it’s a receding hairline. Nope.

    I lived in Charlotte for a while. I went to UNCC and stayed in Charlotte for 5 years before it bored me to tears and I had to come back home to DC lol. It’s a nice family town though and I love the price of living!

    LOVE your outfit! My son wants to be a marine biologist and learning how to swim is on my bucket list. I love these types of blog post, it's always good to get to know the person behind the blog. #BLMGirls

    Hi Tamara, I think your style choices are impeccable! In the transposed words of Jidenna, your style reflects that of a "classic woman"! I hold it down in LR, AR as a promoter, saleman, photographer, makeup artist, and graphic and web designer. I need an editor for a woman's fashion magazine reflecting the style of Carolina women…'holla if you're interested!
