AHHHH! I seriously can’t believe it’s already November! Where did the last year go??? Since it’s the start of a new month I decided it was about time I “got real” with all of you. I get emailed questions about everything from what I wear, where I eat, my favorite places to shop (Nordstrom Rack…) and questions about more intimate details of life. So, I decided to do a monthly Q&A with all of you…my FABULOUS readers!! Feel free to leave a comment below or email me if there is something you are dying to know and I will do my best to answer them in my next post. In the meantime….I have poured myself a glass of Malbec, I have NO MAKEUP on in the photos, I am wearing sweats, and here goes nothing!
What is your full time job?
While I wish I could be a full time blogger, the truth is that it simply does not pay the bills (yet!). I work for a luxury fashion brand’s wholesale division.
Where did you go to college?
I attended University of Redlands here in Southern California where I studied Sociology. I LOOOOOVED the time I spent at UofR and in my sorority (Alpha Xi) but actually never graduated. I sometimes think about going back to finish that last year but have yet to pull that trigger…maybe next year…
How did you start blogging?
A little over 2 years ago I wasn’t working and going freaking crazy! I went to brunch with a few girlfriends and we went shopping after at The Rack (seriously, it’s an obsession). I scored some CRAZY deals that day (I legit found a Haute Hippe sweater for $27!) and talked to my friends about the idea of starting a blog about fashion. It has evolved a lot (please don’t look at those beginning posts) but I have finally found a niche in personal style and my everyday life. It has been a crazy few years but I have loved everyone I have met through the adventure.
What size clothes do you wear?
Ok, here is where “keepin’ it real is tough”. I think all of us women have body insecurities (unless you are Miranda Kerr) and we don’t like to discuss our weight or size. I went back and forth with answering this one because I feel like there are so many size 2, perfect figure bloggers out there. For the record, I wear a size 8-10 depending on the brand or a 29 in jeans and I am 5’8”.
What is your biggest weakness?
Besides clothes? I adore red wine (yuuuuuummmmmmm) and going out to eat. There are seriously so many amazing places to nosh in Palm Springs I feel like I’m missing out when we stay in and cook! I think my biggest vice is chocolate. I am a fiend for any kind of lava cake or soufflé or brownies….ya, it’s bad.
Are you married and do you have kids?
I am not married. I have an amazing boyfriend (who takes a lot of my photos) that I recently moved in with. He is the first guy I have ever lived with! He has kids from his previous relationship but none for us. We do have a fur baby, Sarge, our German Shephard/Golden Retriever rescue.
I hope you enjoyed this little Q&A and I am super excited to sharing more with all of you next month!
