I’m embarrassed that it has taken me so long to write this post! Emily has been with us for almost two months now rockin’ our world with her amazing ideas and knack for eloquence, and we have yet to introduce her to you SaucyPants! However, miss out no more! Without further ado, meet our fabulous new team member, Emily Weber!
We could not ask for a better intern. Emily has been fabulous. She adds so much to our team! Here she is in action at our Halloween Party Photo Shoot! How cute is she?! Her ideas are amazing. Her fashion sense makes me jealous everyday, and she is an talented gluten-free chef. Yes, you will see some gluten-free recipes from her shortly!
To introduce her properly, we thought we would do a lil’ Q + A with Emily! Her voice has been behind a lot of the posts that have been written lately. We will have her identified on the blog shortly, so you can all communicate with her in your comments! Meet Emily …
What is your middle name?
Therese. My initials are either E.T. (an alien) or E.W. (a reaction to something unpleasant). Just call me Emily.
What kinds of pins inspire you most?
I love the fashion pins. I am constantly basing my style from the different ideas I find. I take the photos with me whenever I go shopping to force myself to go outside of my comfort zone.
The food pins are awesome during the holiday season. I already have a list of different recipes I want to try out. First on the list… Gluten free snicker doodle cookies!
Where are you from?
Born and raised an Arizona girl; I grew up in Scottsdale and I’m now living in Tempe. I have tried to move away a few times but I’ve come to terms with my inability to function without the consistent Arizona sunshine.
What are your style inspirations?
I love the bohemian, “hipster” style: Slouchy sweaters, long skirts, and a lot of jewelry. After I discovered the store Brandy Melville, I have attempted to recreate their style in my closet.
Where do you go to school? What do you love about it?
I’m currently in my last year of the business school at Arizona State University.
I love how tight knit my classes are! I have gotten to know so many of my fellow peers and have also created lasting relationships with my teachers. They serve as my mentors and challenge me to take my education to the next level.
What are your favorite foods? What do you love to cook?
I love my gluten free pancakes. I’m a breakfast junkie. I could eat it all day, every day and I think pancakes are so versatile. For a sweet tooth day, I make raspberry, chocolate chip pancakes. Healthier days I go for banana pancakes.
I use a gluten free mix called Pamela’s. Even though I’m the only gluten free foodie in my family, my dad (close minded to all things healthy/ gluten-free) swears he will never eat another style of pancake.
However, my favorite thing to cook is pasta. Whether I’m craving Macaroni and Cheese or Rigatoni with Vegetable Bolognese, pasta is affordable, quick and easy to make!
Who are your role models?
My Grandma is one of my biggest role models. She is 80 years old and is still making such a positive impact on my family and the community. She volunteers at the local hospital, has a personal trainer, travels the world, and plans annual family reunions for my constantly growing extended family. My grandma has such a beautiful heart and I can only hope that I develop into a woman like her.
Savory or Sweet?
Sweet. If anyone has left over Halloween candy, send it my way.
Coffee or Tea?
At least half of my paychecks go toward my coffee addiction.
