Hello! My name is Melissa, and I'm a SoCal native with an affinity for landscape photography, spicy foods, earthy coffee, dry humor, podcasts, history documentaries, and foreign language films. In my free time, I enjoy reading, running, photography, fashion, travel, and blogging.
I am a self-proclaimed DC Comics, Marvel, Star Wars, and Harry Potter nerd. Wonder Woman, Captain America, Han Solo, and Syltherin House for the win.
If you could to catch me at any moment of the day, you'd probably find me listening to music. I listen to a lot of music...probably to my hearing detriment! My current favorite genres are alternative, hip-hop, R&B, and soul.
My moniker, "Trangerine", is inspired by the song, "Tangerine", performed by Nat King Cole. About a decade ago, I was in the shower listening to the radio, and the song came on. It was sweet, catchy, and mellow. It was right in that moment that I knew. Trangerine.
