Who Am I? (FTF Blog Event 4/6)

Full Time Fabulous blogger, Kristy Elena, is hosting her first monthly blog event over at the official Sunglasses Hut blog (that she blogs for after winning their professional blogger contest!). It is a United Nations type theme, with each participating blogger posting something visual that represents their heritage and place they live. As you've guessed, I am participating in this month's event and chose to do a digital collage to help portray who I am.

I want to extend a warm thank you to Kristy for putting this together and assembling a bunch of bloggers to create a fabulous new community. If you want to join the FTF Community, go here or check out the Full Time Fabulous blog for more information.


First, the title of this post refers to my favorite song in Les Miserables, "Who Am I?"...

About this collage:
  • I love musicals, song-and-dance type old films (and old films in general). I grew up doing musical theater and have great memories because of it.
  • The Hairspray pic- I went to NYC and saw it on Broadway. That concludes the musical part of the post, and it brings us to...
  • The circus! One of the best things about living in south Florida is diversity and access to so much entertainment (yes I know, I'm like a 5yr old when it comes to the circus and performing arts...)
  • The culinary diversity is fantastic here- you never know what you have until you travel someplace else. One of my favorite kinds of food that I've grown to like is of the spanish/mexican/colombian variety. (see the empanadas and pico de gallo? yum!)
  • The weather is fantastic until you get into summer (too hot and rainy in the first half). Pools are a big plus (I don't have one- that pic on the top left is at my friend's house), but if you don't have access to one, there's always...
  • The beach! I live where you vacation- enough said.
  • The fire boot pic was taken at my aunt's house. She lives in the country and my sister, cousins and I have fun exploring it and the surrounding woods. (Also doing bonfires and eating s'mores!!)
  • We have awesome sunsets here... even better when viewed from the roof.
  • My heritage- probably 3/4 English and 1/4 German, but I'm 100% American. I took a trip to England a few years ago to see my 'homeland.' :) My people are there (you know, the pale ones?)

Thank you for reading a bit about me. Be sure to check out the FTF page and click the links to see what everyone else posted (your favorite bloggers are there!). If you didn't get a chance to sign up, you can always go rogue and do a post like this on your own :)

I love your collage approach. How thoughtful, colorful, artistic and special. I love it! The sushi, the map overlays, the flat shoes ... it tells me so much about you in just one quick glance. Yeah ftfcommunity.

Love the collage! Did you put it together in Photoshop? I've never seen a digital version that looks this great, especially with all the bold colors! - Katy

Great collage! I'm based in NYC but will be moving to South Florida soon. So it was nice to see your visual interpretation of my soon to be home =)

Hey, almost-title-twin! ;)

You did such a great job with this, I love how you brought so much diversity into it. I've only been to Florida two times, I think, to visit my grandparents who vacation in Fort Myers in the winter months.

Oh, and the boot picture is my absolute new favorite thing. Gorgeous!

As others have said, I love how you incorporated the map into your collage. That was brilliant. As were the images you selected. I love Les Mis, and share your passion for musicals and old films. I can never get enough of them. And that boot pic is fierce. Perfect! Thanks for sharing a bit of yourself with us!

Job well done on the collage!!! I am thoroughly enjoying the FTF group! Everyone is expressing this topic so differently, it's been wonderful reading!!

I LOVE MUSICALS!!!-My mom took me to my first when I was 9 and I see one at least a couple times a year now. Les Mis is one of my favorites!!
