Hi, I’m Nilsa Tolliver! I am the founder, Designer and Lead Coordinator of Emerald Events and would love to tell you a little bit more about myself. Here are 10 facts about me!
My favorite colors are of course emerald green and a light shade of pink! My birthday is May 7th, meaning emerald is my birthstone. I think the color pink describes me perfectly, romantic, feminine, and sweet.
I was born in Brooklyn, New York! I still visit often to spend time with family. It is the most populated part of New York city! I moved to Richmond VA in 1998 to attend VCU and never left!
One of my favorite shows is Golden Girls! Who doesn’t love Betty White?! The character I’m most like is Sophia – AKA MA!
My favorite food is anything my mom (aka the other Nilsa) cooks! She cooks authentic Puerto Rican food and it’s the best. My second fav foods are pasta and pizza.
I still love to write all my plans and schedules down into a notebook even though now there are online calendars and note apps. There’s nothing like writing with a pretty pen and designer stationary.
I absolutely love coffee but am trying to slow it down! Who’s with me on this one? I am proudly down to two cups a week. My fav starbucks drink is a white chocolate mocha with an extra shot of espresso.
Before wedding planning I obtained my cosmetology license and worked in a salon doing hair and nails. I also modeled locally and was published in a few magazines!
My biggest pet peeve is when I’m eating and someone says. “Ewww what is that?! I WANT to say, “Its food weirdo!” But that would be rude so I just smile and keep chewing.
When I was younger I was left handed. When I was asked by a teacher what hand I write with (she saw me using both) and I told her both but mostly my left she said that was wrong and I needed to pick one. So she put the pencil in my right hand….and viola I became right handed. I can still write with both!
My husband has the most dreamy green eyes. I often get lost in his eyes when he talks. He usually has to repeat himself at least 3 times before I can concentrate enough to realize what he’s actually talking about.
