About Me

Hey everyone, thanks for stopping by! I can't even put into words how excited I am to have started my own blog. For those of you who don't know me (which is about 99% of you) let me fill you in :)

My name is Adriana, I'm in my early 30s and have been married for almost 3 years. I was born and raised in New England and although I complain about the humidity and snow storms I actually love the fact that I get to experience all 4 seasons. I started filming beauty videos for YouTube last June (http://www.youtube.com/user/MarisaP39) because, well, why not? I love all things makeup and quickly fell in love with the beauty community. I've made a ton of dear friends the past few months who have really supported and encouraged me to take chances I normally wouldn't have.

Like starting a blog! I originally started my YouTube beauty channel with plans to involve all types of videos, beauty, DIY, food, etc. but that just doesn't make sense for my channel anymore. I've been wanting to start a blog for years and finally decided to just take the plunge and learn as I go!

So what is 'Becoming Adriana' all about? Everything! After years of trying to please others and play it safe I feel like I finally embraced who I really am, all I was meant to be. I'm doing things I love for me. 

I love makeup and beauty, like, a lot! Makeup should be fun and used to enhance your own beauty, not as a mask to hide from the world.

I embrace the old lady inside of me that loves gardening, home decor and cooking (admit it, you love it, too!)

I already mentioned DIY and home renovations (my husband is redoing our front stone steps and I'm his trusty little helper). Even though I like glamming it up for no reason I also don't mind getting dirty ;)

See what I mean? I'd love it if you went on this crazy ride with me and gave me any feedback you think might be helpful. I'm all about improving and having fun while I do it.

Stay blessed!!!
