20 Facts About Gabby Abigail
1. NEW YEAR’S EVE BABY
I was born on December 31st, making me a very lucky New Year’s Eve baby. There’s just something so special to me about having a birthday on the last day of the year and starting every new year with a different age. And not to mention that December is my favorite month!
2. BILINGUAL & GRATEFUL
I am bilingual, fluent in both English and Spanish. The older I get, the more grateful I am with my parents for making sure that I learned both languages at a young age. I absolutely love being able to communicate and understand things in two languages.

3. EAST COAST RAISED, WEST COAST HEART….
Although I have lived in the East Coast most of my life (New York and Ohio), I am so fascinated by the West Coast. Don’t get me wrong, I love living in the East Coast. New York will always hold a special place in my heart and Ohio is such a lovely place to live in. However, I’m a summer girl at heart. I love warm weather, sunny days, tropical vibes, and not having to drive in snow haha. So, the West Coast sounds like a total dream to me!
4. I LOVE TO TRAVEL
I believe traveling is one of the greatest things that life has to offer.
TOP 7 COUNTRIES I WANT TO VISIT SOMEDAY:
USA STATES I HAVE BEEN TO:
- New York

5. ONCE A NEW YORKER, ALWAYS A NEW YORKER
Even though I have been happily living in Ohio since 2013, New York will always be my home.
I will always cherish enjoying New York style pizza, walking to the nearest deli, taking the train to go to Manhattan, eating in my favorite Ecuadorian restaurants, going to school with my childhood best friends, and every single memory I created in New York City.
6. FROM FASHION DESIGNER TO BLOGGER?
Growing up I wanted to become a Fashion Designer or a Teacher. However, I never pursued either career. Instead, I studied art and accounting in college, and ended up becoming a blogger after graduating. Which I believe is the best decision I have ever made.
7. THE “LUCKY” MIDDLE CHILD
I have a younger and an older sister, which makes me the lucky middle child.
But, believe it or not, I love being the middle child. I love having an older sister to look up to and having a young sister to look after! Plus my parents have never made me feel left out or feel less loved than my sisters.
8. MY FAVORITE ANIMALS ARE…..
I love pandas, deer, and tigers! All very different from each other, but so beautiful in my eyes!
9. NEUTRAL COLORS HAVE MY HEART

10. “APAIXONADO POR PORTUGUES”
My favorite foreign language is Portuguese (Brazilian Portuguese!) I hope to be able to learn it someday!
11. FOOTBALL FANATIC
While I’ve never been into sports growing up (or now even), I do enjoy watching football. And no I’m not talking about American football. Football is the only sport I watch. My favorite football clubs are FC Barcelona and PSG. And my favorite football national teams are Brazil, Italy, and USA!
12. ACCOUNTING DEGREE & CAREER?
When I started College, my inital goal was to get an art degree. However, I ended up switching my major to interior design and later on to accounting. I switched my major to accounting because it’s pretty much a combination of two of my favorite subjects, math and business. Although I enjoyed studying accounting and was able to get my degree and work as an A/R for a few months, this was never my dream. Accounting seemed like the better option in College, however, I only found my purpose and dream job after starting my blog.
13. PASSIONATE FOR CONTENT CREATION
What I love to do the most in life is to CREATE. I have always been a very artistic and creative person, so I find joy in creating content and art.
14. FITNESS ENTHUSIAST
After taking a dance class in College, I developed a great love for fitness.
I enjoy working out, trying out new exercises, and keeping my body in shape. I guess you can say that I am obsessed with all things fitness.
15. A LOVER OF ART
Not only do I love to create art (paintings, drawings, etc), I love to appreciate it. I am so obsessed with art museums! You best believe that if I visit another city, I have to check out it’s art museum. I can spend hours and hours admiring art, especially ancient art.
16. ORGANIZED OCD NEAT FREAK
I’m not embarrassed to say that I am one organized neat freak.
I love being extra when organizing my life and the things that I do. I’m all about using schedules, planners, routines, alarms, and checklists.
17. 101% A HOMEBODY
As much as I love traveling and visiting new places, there is no place like home. I love being at home and appreciating all the simple things in life like blogging, painting, bullet journaling, creating content, watching movies, cooking, reading the Bible, etc. I would much rather stay at home than go out to party. Does that make me weird? Maybe, but I wouldn’t have it any other way!
18. CHRISTIAN BORN AND RAISED
I was born into a strict Christian family and have been raised as a Christian all of my life. Although I always believed in God, attended church, and even accepted Jesus in my heart on April 8, 2021, I didn’t build a personal relationship with God until after 2016.
19. PINEZAPPLE PIZZA
My absolute favorite food in the entire world is pineapple pizza. I love it, I appreciate it, and I crave it all the time!
