My name is Britt, and I’m the Diva behind Diaries of a Domestic Diva. I’m a 20-something (scarily heading toward 30-something realm) living in LA, just trying to figure out how to win at life – on a budget.
Let’s Do a Listicle:
1. I’m an LA native – born raised (and die).
2. That being said, Arizona is definitely my favorite place to be, and any chance I get I’m at the river (Lake Havasu).
3. I’ve been blogging since July 2014 and loving every minute of it! It’s incredibly hard work, but just looking back at how far I’ve come and all the lessons I’ve learned has been well worth it.
4. I have an amazing boyfriend, best friend and roomie. He’s my cowboy and my partner in crime.
5. I’ve been making an effort to spend more time with my amazing family, and fun times have definitely ensued. This is from when we got bottle service in Ensenada.
6. By day, I’m a Senior Account Executive in PR, getting media coverage for my kickass tech clients. Although the hours are insane, clients can drive me crazy and there is never a moment to breathe, I wouldn’t trade it for any other career. Getting media coverage for a great client is an amazing feeling, and the career field teaches you perseverance and resourcefulness like none other.
7. I’ve been a vegetarian my entire life, and I love cooking up delicious new recipes.
8. I’m a giraffe mom. This is my son, Geoffrey. He’s a punk and an alcoholic and he always brings the good times. Follow him on Instagram for countless shenanigans. I also have a bear, Duffy, a cat, PrettyKitty, and a deer, Chestnut, but they are much more well-behaved.
9. I just saw snow for the first time in November 2016! I thought I would hate it, but I ended up having so much fun. I went on my first plane in January 2016 (I’m a late bloomer), and now I can’t get enough of traveling. Send me your recommendations!
10. My ultimate goal in life has always been to just be happy – whatever that looks like. The John Lennon quote below has, and always will be, my personal mantra. Life is too short dude!
“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.” – John Lennon
