Girl Behind the Blog – 25 Fast Facts!

Who knew that my January would lead to a boom in buyers hitting the real estate market?! For the most part this winter has been fairly mild and this has contributed to me being much busier than I have been in years past. This is a good thing for the most part, but unfortunately it has come at the expense of my blog.

Despite the fact I haven’t had much time to create a lot of posts, I have been able to be active on Instagram. If you aren’t following me already make sure you do so here.

Although, I’ve only been blogging/Instagramming for about 3 months, I just hit 1000 followers on Instagram, which probably doesn’t seem like that much, but it is a big deal to me! I am aware of people who have been blogging for years and have less followers than that, so I am so grateful for all of those who have chosen to follow me and my blogging journey!

Because I have a whole bunch of new followers I decided to write a quick post with 25 fast facts about me so you get to know me a little better!

  1. My given name is Colette, but I am referred to as CoCo for short. I’ve been known as CoCo for as long as I can remember, and it is too hard to go by my given name now.
  2. I am in my mid 20’s.
  3. I work as a real estate agent.
  4. My boyfriend Daniel and I bought our house in May 2014.
  5. Our house wasn’t necessarily a fixer upper, but we have been making it our own, which makes it feel like it was one!
  6. I favor grey tones over browns.
  7. I’ve always wanted a house with only black and white decor, paint and tile, but haven’t found the house with the right architecture to do it.
  8. I am biased towards Apple products.
  9. I have an obsession with gold. My Macbook and iPhone are both gold, and when I complete my office most of my decor will be white with gold accents.
  10. My favorite stores for decor are Pottery Barn, Crate and Barrel, and West Elm.
  11. I go to Target at least 1 time a week.
  12. After listening to her Podcast Straight Up with Stassi, I’ve decided Stassi Schroeder is my spirit animal.
  13. Malcolm Gladwell is my favorite author.
  14. Paris is my favorite place in the entire world.
  15. I could binge watch crime related shows all day long. Some personal favorites are SVU and Criminal Minds.
  16. Fresh flowers and candles are must-haves in my home.
  17. My dog, Riesling, was named after the wine Daniel and I drank on our first date.
  18. I love fast food and eating out, and I have no shame about it.
  19. My favorite movies are Bridesmaids and Mean Girls
  20. I use a Nikon D60 and a 35 mm lens to shoot most of my photos.
  21. My favorite thing in my house is my Pottery Barn Cozy Cable Knit Throw found here.
  22. If Daniel would let me we would buy a house and remodel it every two years.
  23. My favorite quote is “She believed she could, so she did.”
  24. My dream house is Rachel Parcell’s from Pink Peonies.
  25. Some of my favorite blogs include Fashionable HostessCupcakes and CashmereGal Meets Glam, and The Everygirl.

    I love posts like this! And girl I am right there with you. SVU and Criminal Minds are two of my all time favorite shows! I’ve watched all the seasons of both shows, as well as CSI and CSI NY. I wish there were more crime related shows out there!

    What a fun post. After reading all your facts, I feel like we would make great friends, since over half of your answers would have matched mine! Not going to lie, I love that you named your dog Riesling. I may need to borrow that for my next puppy…;)

    OMG seems like we have so much in common. While I’ve been a homeowner much longer I’m partial to black and white decor as well. I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Pottery Barn and Williams Sonoma, West Elm and Home Goods. World Market is great too. I also go to Target at least once a week lol and can never leave with just the 1 thing I went in to get. ????

    My boyfriend (whose name is Daniel too!) has to physically talk me out of going to Target, if not I would go more than once a week! It helps that we live in Washington, D.C. and It’s a hassle to get there!

      You have to start listening to it! At minimum listen to the 2 episodes with her boyfriend Patrick. They are so awesome together I love it.

    Fun getting to know you better!! We have been in our first home for about 2.5 years and it is amazing how much you end up growing into your home. We have lots of little projects too, but the big one was our yard. I think being a real estate agent would be fun and I can’t go to Target too often or I will blow ALL my money haha!

      Being a real estate agent is fun! But it is a 24/7 kind of gig but it’s totally worth it for me!
