~My Answers~ 

What is one thing in your closet that you can’t live without?

It depends on which season.  For fall/winter/spring, it’s my light washed easy jeans from American Apparel and my black 1460 Doc Martens that I thrifted for $7.  For summer, I can’t live without my glitter jellies from UO and my high waisted zipper-in-the-back indigo shorts from Forever 21.

Do you value fashion more? Or function?

Fashion, for sure.  Bonus points if it happens to be functional, but fashion takes the cake.

Who is your favorite Youtuber?

Probably Jenn Im from Clothes Encounters; she’s the only one I really follow to be totally honest.

What is your favorite kind of blush?

I actually don’t use any blush! When I first started buying and using makeup, I made the mistake of buying blush (it was Sephora brand, no idea what shade) but I never touched it because my cheeks are naturally rosy.

How do you start a Monday morning?

Same way as any morning, really. Get up, eat breakfast, wash face, put on makeup etc.

Why did you start blogging?

Although this blog came into being on May 26th, 2014, I started blogging on December 10th, 2010 as a way to express myself/free myself from the chaos surrounding me in real life.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?

My hometown. NYC forever.

Do you believe less is more or do you go for a more dramatic look?

I definitely go for a more dramatic look- bright colors, crazy prints, I struggle to find basic things like t shirts in my closet, oops.

Whose closet would you love to steal?

Probably Katy Perry’s. Or, I’d love to rob where ever Jeremy Scott keeps everything he has ever designed.

What beauty product have you repurchased the most?

Definitely my black liquid eyeliner, L’OREAL Paris Liquid Eyeliner 690 in Carbon Black.

What do you hope trends this year?

I’d like to see butterfly clips make a full fledged comeback.  As a someone who grew up in the 00’s, I used to have so many and they were so colorful and cute!
