About Me

Hey you! Thanks for stopping by and getting to know me. Impromptu Ingenue is truly a labor of love—and without my readers it would not be nearly as rewarding. So, thanks! You're the best.





My name is Vanessa, and I am social media marketing and content strategy expert. I recently ended a really lovely chapter as a social media manager for Birchbox. Now I'm with Life Fitness heading up global social media strategy for four brands in their portfolio. I'm on a newly found mission to enjoy every minute of my lifestyle. I reign from the city of charm, better known as Baltimore. And no matter what anyone says, there is absolutely no place like home! I am currently based in Chicago and couldn't be happier about it.  I am obsessed with all things fashion, fitness, beauty and food. I am confident in my ability to find a healthy alternative to all of the comfort food favorites—all of the flavor, fraction of the guilt. Ironically, I am also pretty confident in my ability to eat an entire pizza if you sit it in front of me. There is no in-between. Lettuce or cheeseburgers. My beauty essentials are a good face moisturizer, liquid eyeliner and red lipstick. All the other stuff is just a bonus! I am a wannabe wine connoisseur. I like to believe that I know everything about the fermented grapes, but my knowledge pretty much goes like this: if it's red and in a glass, I will drink it. I love to laugh, I love to dance, I love to dream, I love to talk and I love to love. I work hard and dream chasing is my full-time job! I am on a constant quest to be a better version of myself everyday. And whenever I feel like giving up, I just ask myself W.W.B.D. -- What would Beyonce do? I'm thinking of making bracelets.

Things you will notice in my writing:
I am a ranter. rant-er? (<-- is that a word?)
I will ask you questions (see above). And I want answers! Talk to me, people :)
I abuse caps lock
I abuse parenthesis
I write as if I'm talking, and yes I talk a lot

I am, in fact, an impromptu ingenue. And I thank you for joining me on this adventure!
