Tidbits about Tara


Welcome to The Daiquiri Diaries!

Hi! I’m Tara Fuller, here you will find my musings on fashion, beauty, travel, food and any other inspirations I might find along the way (hopefully they inspire you too!). This is my creative outlet to chronicle my outfit obsessions, things I just can’t live without, and fun things life throws in the mix.

Outside of the Diary, I manage a heart transplant program here in Dallas, TX. I went to school at the University of Oklahoma (Boomer!) as a pre-med major starting in 2004, but switched gears when I encountered health problems of my own. Nursing quickly became my greatest passion. I graduated with my BSN from Midwestern State University and recently finished my MSN and Master’s in Healthcare Systems Management from Loyola University New Orleans. Whew! My career has been splashed in Emergency Room/Trauma nursing, ICU/Surgical ICU/Cardiovascular ICU, and now transplant. Organ transplant is a privelege beyond my wildest dreams; the patients I serve have taught and continue to teach me life lessons each and every day. That being said, please consider registering to become an organ donor. One donor can save up to 8 lives! My life is a constant surge of managing and maintaining chaos, all while wearing a glamourous pair of heels, yes even at the hospital!

These things make me happy: irreplaceable friends. the smell of rain. good quotes. being organized (i tend to be OCD). Ballet. my precious pup Daiquiri (I’ve had her since 2006). my rescued pup Hawk. postcards. classic movies. novels in paperback (I’m a huge bookworm). the gym. movie marathons. the Bible. Disney movies. happy endings. cooking. pilates. baking. pride and prejudice. Christmas music. old school nintendo. pedicures. sunshine on my face. the symphony. pastels. hobby lobby (so easy to spend hours in there!). cute hats. my very large family. photos in black and white. the smell of clean laundry. Lord of the Rings/Star Wars/Star Trek (i’m a HUGE girl geek). miracles (i’ve seen them!). kisses. midday naps. babies. giggling. paying it forward. shoes(!!). dancing in my underwear (try it, it’s liberating!). inner beauty. yoga. the feeling of accomplishment. mini-muffins. halloween. harry potter. traveling. star-gazing. new love. big sunglasses. scrap-booking. Christmas trees. coffee mugs (i have SO many!) daisies. lilies. nursing. Starbucks. the first snow. conversations for catching up. the smell of coffee. bubble baths. smelly good candles. my brother and adorable nephew. crisping in the sun. Broadway. feeling glamorous. smiles. the beach. New York City.

I would love to know more about you, what you’d like to see and more!
