Hi, I'm Trina . I have always had interest in fashion, cuisine, and of course reading. My cousin will certainly force me to watch all the cooking shows that were on TV. She is a chef and a real DIY kind of gal. Now I'm glued to the art of cooking, although I am not anybody's chef! My love of travel came much later when my friend, Carlotta reintroduced me to it. She travels as often as one will brush their teeth! It is a treat to have soaps, handmade jewelry, and apparel from all over the world! Cultural awareness goes without saying. Ten facts about me. 1. I am super spontaneous. This is a curse and a blessing. 2. Like most girls, I am obsessed with shoes. I even have a whole room full of them. 3. I've been a vegetarian for a very long time, but I'm always surprised to see the whole meat vs non meat debate. Eat what you want. Respect me as I do the same. 4. .In fourth grade"my teacher' suggested I become a writer. She was the first teacher to do so, but not the last! 5. I majored in creative writing in high school. Listening to other people talk about how hard it is, is how I strayed away. (Do not listen to people killing your dreams) 6. I am obsessed with hot sauces, the hotter the better. Although, I admit some have recently almost took me out. (Can I have some water, some soy milk?) 7. I secretly wish I can clone my cat, and everything else I love. 8. I like cooking, but did not start until I was 20. 9. I rarely make announcements, most people figure out what happened later. 10.. My grandma had/has an incredible fashion sense. I absolutely played with her cosmetics, costume jewelry, shoes, and everything from a young age. She had got a magazine subscription to "YM" from fourth grade.! The magazine was geared towards high students, but I certainly gained some valuable knowledge from that.
