12 Things About Me


Yesterday, I was challenged by one of my blogger friends Angelle to share 12 things about Myself that people do not know about me. I am so competitive and I love a good challenge so naturally I couldn't say no. One of my favorite things about blogging is the friendship I have made with women all over the world. Angelle thank you so much for tagging me!! So here goes nothing. I would love to get to know y'all so be sure to leave a comment below and share something about yourself with me. Also, if you can relate to any of the 12 things I will be sharing let ya girl know!!

1.     We all know Loco is Spanish for crazy. My Last name is Lowe, and I'm crazy about my God who picked a perfect family for me to be a part of. I am also crazy about my name Chelsea Olivia Lowe. The Co in my blog name comes from my initials, and my nickname is CoCo. The petite comes in because I am 4'11. Hence, the appropriate name LoweCo Petite for my fashion and lifestyle blog. 

2.     I started picking out my clothes at the age of two. I’ve always had a love for fashion - you can ask anyone who’s ever known me!

3.     I haven’t worked out at all this year… Opps. Summer is right around the corner so hopefully that will change here in the next few weeks. But, I do love all things sports. Retired gymnast. Competed 15 years. I started Pole-vaulting my senior year in High school. Then went on to pursue that in college.

4.     I am a foodie. I love all things food. If I had to choose Sweet vs. Savory… I would pick savory all the way. (I would so much rather have sweet potato fries and sparkling water with a lime, over a donut or anything sweet). If I had to eat one meal for the rest of my life it would have to be a burrito bowl from Chipotle. It has my favorite rice (ever), meat, vegetables, cheese; it has a little bit of everything so I feel it will always satisfy! 

5.     Believe it or not I am definitely a plain Jane. I have had the same exact hair style for over 12 years.

6.     For over 10 years, I've been consistently getting my nails done. Once I started I never stopped! 

7.     My Family means the world to me. My baby brother, Carl O. Lowe Jr., is in his first year of pharmacy school at Ole Miss. Carl O. Lowe Sr., aka Coach Lowe. The best father a girl could have. He’s from England and he’s one of the reasons why I love fashion so much. I have the most beautiful southern belle of a Momma, Carol Michelle Lowe, born and raise in Mississippi. There is no mother quite like her. My family is the sweetest gift from God. What can I say It’s a Lowe Thing.

8.     Growing up I battled with severe anxiety and depression; I would probably have at least one panic attack a week while I was in high school. I mean it was so bad I even got the approval to take my ACT and SAT in a classroom all by myself. But, by the grace of God I was saved as a Christian three years ago. My life has been drastically changed and I will never be the same! God healed me from my depression and anxiety. Can I get an Amen somebody?
  
9.     It took me six years to start a fashion blog, so I guess my advice to anyone starting out would be don't wait to do something you love. Take a leap of faith and do it! I have secretly been a blogger via Instagram and Tumblr since 2011. 

10.  I never missed a day of High School or Middle School growing up. I actually got a college scholarship for having perfect attendance for seven years straight. 
  
11.  I do not really watch TV. But, I am obsessed with Grey's Anatomy! I secretly feel like a doctor when I watch it. Just call me Chelsea Lowe, M.D.S.R (Doctor of Medicine via Shonda Rhimes). I also love; Pretty Little Liars, This is Us, and Gossip Girls.

12.  I am crazy about all things that smell good. So naturally, I use an excessive amount of dryer sheets. I'm obsessed with the smell of clean laundry! I am also obsessed with Stress Relief products from Bath & Body Works! (It’s legit the only shower gel, and body lotion I have on heavy rotation 365 days a year)

Meet My Bestie + Black and Olive Outfit Post











We laughed, we cried, we danced, we prayed, we worshiped, and we had a fabulous weekend!!
"You can always tell when two people are best friends because they are having more fun than it makes sense for them to be having.” I have to say; it was so amazing to laugh and hangout with my best friends. If you are longing for a best friend - pray for one!! God couldn't have blessed me with a better bff. She's a foot taller than me exactly (I'm 4'11 she's 5'11), she loves Jesus, food, fashion and football!! I mean she's amazing! There are those times when we can be together without saying anything at all and just enjoy each other’s presence.
Having a best friend is such a beautiful thing!! Whether it’s your spouse, a family member or girl friend who feels like family, it's so nice to have people in your life who see the best in you and who inspire you to want to be better. It’s awesome to be able to laugh at silly things and cry on one another’s shoulders. Friends are priceless so be very grateful for them. Friendships should be treasured. Show them how much you appreciate them, and take the time to sit and do nothing at all other than enjoy your time together. To my dear bestie…I love you! Thanks for being my best friend. Now onto our outfits; both my top and bottom are from Golden Hanger, and my jacket is from J.Crew. Hannah's top and bottom are both Lulu Lemon and her bomber is from Francesca's!!
