How would you describe your style?
Creative, casual, & comfortable.
Do you blog full-time?
No.. at least, not yet! I am a consultant for Vans & have a few side gigs, like writing fashion articles for thredUP & Visit Newport Beach’s blog. I work on this blog (& everything that goes along with it) early in the AM, late at night, & on the weekends. You can learn more about what I do here.
Why did you start a blog?
In college, I wore anything & everything. I was wearing a jean skirt with leg warmers (so Abercrombie, right?) one day & a pencil skirt with 4-inch heels the next. My style was all over the place, but my friends would always look to me for fashion advice. I figured I’d start documenting my fashion finds & the blog was born.
Where do you live?
This summer I moved from California to Raleigh, NC for my darling boyfriend, Ry. I loved California (originally from Boston) but I’m excited to be back on the east coast since most of my family & friends are still there!
What size are you?
I’m 5’9″ & wear a size 4/6, depending on the brand.
Who takes your pictures?
My boyfriend! He loves being behind the camera which makes my life easier.
What kind of camera do you use?
I use a Nikon D5200 with a 35mm lens.
Why do you like blogging?
It’s my creative outlet & honestly, it’s fun! I enjoy creating content for you guys, whether it’s through photography, fashion, or writing. It’s also been so cool building a brand & running a small business. I like being my own #girlboss, you know?
Do you have any advice on starting a blog?
If not now, when? That’s my absolute favorite quote that has played a large part in some big decisions throughout my life. If you’re thinking about starting a blog, just do it! There are so many great articles on Pinterest on how to start a blog. I shared WHY you should start a blog in this post.
Who does your hair?
I take my hair very seriously! In Boston, I go to Kim at Blondie Salon & Spa in Waltham. In California, I went to Kelly Collins at the Parlor Hair Boutique at Seal Beach. You can see how I style my infamous beach waves here. I also have a whole Pinterest board dedicated to balayage (it’s my thing, you know?).
How do you make money?
I charge for my time, whether it’s a style post featuring a specific brand, an Instagram post endorsing a product, or an event that I am hosting. I also work with a third party affiliate linking site, which means if you buy a product that I feature on my blog or social media channels, I make a small commission.
