Welcome! I’m Emily. I’m a sassy, fiercely independent 26 year old gal living in the good ol Buckeye state. I’m a licensed cosmetologist and an experienced freelance makeup artist and hair stylist, though currently on a “hiatus”. However, I do have a bridal beauty business called Brides By Blake that I do on the side. I manage my dad’s Wellness center full time. It comes with great responsibility and I take much pride in my career. It’s funny… if you asked me 5 years ago where I would hope to be one day, it would be doing hair and makeup full time…but life has lead me down a different path and I am more than OK with that. I truly believe that everything happens for a reason.
So a little about me. I love country music, Ohio State football, dive bars, random road trips, laugh attacks, Fall time and bonfires, horror movies, beer, the acoustic version, rustic home decor, vintage cars, spontaneity, cut offs, hoodies and cowboy boots. I am a huge believer in Wanderlust. I have an obsession with exploring new places. I’ll be that person you see sitting at a bar alone, and I have no fear to road trip somewhere solo. I have a never ending desire to see new places, meet new places and experience new things. Side note – I have a foul mouth so if that offends you, I would leave now & probably never come back to my blog.
So The Gypsy Wanderer huh? If our souls had names, that is exactly what mine would be. This blog is my little corner where I will write about whatever the hell I want. I’m not some amazing writer, I’m just a normal, confused girl sharing my journey. I am striving to make changes in my life, trying to get the most out of life, conquer my fears and learn more about who I am and who I want to be. I want to live a life of giving into my Wanderlust. I don’t want life to bog me down. I’m learning every day how to live more toxic-free from the products I use, things I eat and people I expose myself to. I just want to be the best version of myself. I want to see myself differently. I want to see the world differently. I want to see others differently.
