August 2, 2010

Flatout Fabulous Logo

It’s BlogHer week and we are anxiously preparing for what will surely be a great conference in NYC! It seems we’re not the only one’s gearing up – as we were overwhelmed by the influx of profiles we received in the last week. So in honor of the conference, our last profile will be a supercharged edition, featuring {the lucky number} seven bloggers! If you’ve missed the previous profiles, or want to take one more peek before arriving in NYC, you can check them all out below.

This week’s profile features seven women who collectively have:

  • been in a contestant on Jeopardy!
  • spent a year in the UK working as a nurse
  • fallen in love with Richard Dreyfuss in “Whose Life is it Anyway?”
  • become addicted to Bret Michael’s Trop-A-Rocka Diet Snapple
  • dug Eat, Pray, Love out of storage after seeing a preview for the movie
  • recently discovered a superstition
  • gone from kids to cars

Romy Shorr

Name: Romy Schorr (@romyraves)

Resides in: Los Angeles, California

Blogs at: http://www.RomyRaves.com

Favorite Movie Character: The Wicked Witch of the West from The Wizard of Oz, because she is green (my fav color), she has ‘tude, her own style, and is unconventional/beats to her own drum like me! 🙂

If I were a fruit, I would be: A cherry – because they are sweet and sour, full of juicy flavor, and they are special, seasonal and you don’t find them year round/everywhere.

Addicted to: All the fresh, juicy, full flavored tasty summer fruits (especially nectarines) and Bret Michael’s Trop-A-Rocka Diet Snapple (a yummalicious combo of mango and pineapple).

Currently Reading: New Moon by Stephenie Meyer – a perfect summer Chic-Lit read and I am totally addicted to these vampire romance angst stories.

You Should Know: That I am totally comfortable speaking in public and tend to come alive when I am in front of a group of people (or a camera) talking about what I am passionate about! My dream is to be well-known lifestyle and beauty trends expert so that I can help women (especially 40+) feel more beautiful by sharing insider beauty tips and tricks.

Favorite Movie Character: I love Giselle from Enchanted. She is adorable and a good role model for my daughters. She gets the man of her dreams and has a career. My entire family loves the movie.

If I were a fruit, I would be: a Kiwi. Good tasting alone or in a margarita!

Addicted to: Reality shows. Not the game show or competitive ones but pretty much anything else. I am also addicted to always being connected. I checked email on my honeymoon. Black jellybeans. Red licorice. Sweet baby kisses. Hugging my children.

Ashley Albert

Resides In: New York City

Blogs At: http://GimmeJimmies.com, http://SurvivalofTheHippest.com and http://TreatCred.com

Favorite Movie Character: Willy Wonka…the GENE HACKMAN version…He was the perfect combination of light and dark, sweet and sour, old and young, simple and complicated…and with access to REALLY good snacks.

If I were a fruit, I would be: a lemon…versatile, bright and bracing.

Addicted to: working. Really shoud’ve gotten addicted to napping instead.

Currently Reading: Reading?? Who had time for reading? I’m just trying to finish the salad I bought for lunch 8 hours ago.

You Should Know: I didn’t know I was superstitious until I was faced with a ladder blocking the sidewalk and at the last minute, I went around it. I didn’t know I couldn’t spell superstitious until I wrote that last sentence. I’ll try anything twice and believe deeply in third chances. I strive for the perfect lunch everyday. I used to be afraid of failure, but now I’m just afraid of not following through. And snakes.
