What inspired you to write a blog?
Art, design, and style are a few of my biggest loves. I say “few” because I love a lot of things – books, cupcakes, dinosaurs, school supplies, Vicks Vapo-rub, sarcasm…you get the idea. I needed a place where I could channel my creative energy (it’s been bundling up inside since I took art class in high school). After a few words of encouragement from friends, a bit of research, and a lot of Am I really going to put this on the internet?-thinking, I decided to start a blog. I wanted a spot where I could collect my ideas and share them.
Where do you shop?
I’ll shop anywhere that I can find good, quality products at reasonable (aka “normal people”) prices. To see where I got something from, please refer to either the bubbles in or at the bottom of a post. Unfortunately, because I do look for bargains most places will no longer carry the item that I have. However, at least you can get an idea of where something is from, or look for a similar item.
What kind of camera do you use to take your pictures?
I currently use a Nikon – D5000 DSLR and my iPhone. For my Nikon I have three different lenses:
- 18–55mm f/3.5–5.6 NIKKOR VR
- 55–200mm Vibration Reduction Zoom Lens
- AF-S DX Nikkor 35mm f/1.8 Macro Lens
Do you photoshop your images?
Tricky question. Let’s just say, I use Adobe Photoshop to adjust mid-tones, brightness, play around with filters, etc.—to enhance the quality of the photo. I will never photoshop myself or someone else to make us look different. What you see is what I am.
How often will you write in your blog?
In addition to my blog, I currently have a full time job, and a few other extracurricular activities. When I find the time to take pictures, edit, write, and post it’ll come out to be one to two times a week. I have tons of ideas and am constantly being inspired, so in the future I hope to write more often. (Remember, the best way to get updates is to follow me on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram).
Who designed your blog?
I did! I use Adobe Photoshop CS5 and Elements, plus a bit of HTML (Hyper-Text Language Markup) to create the header, side bar icons, and layout for various pages. I’m fancy like that. (Not really…I just pretend to be).
MORE FUN STUFF!
Do you prefer red or white wine?
Depends on how sexy I’m feeling that day. Usually it’s just beer.
Are you a cookie monster or a cupcake-fanatic?
Isn’t it obvious? Marshmallow-gobbler…geez. No really, there isn’t a dessert I’ll turn my back to.
If there was one thing you could eat every day for the rest of your life, what would it be?QUESO! (But please throw in the chips and guacamole.)
Who is your girl celebrity crush?
Tough question…I have so many! A few of my all-time favorite girl bosses are Sandra Bullock, Mindy Kaling, J-Lo, and Victoria Beckham.
Where are your top 3 travel destinations?
Chiang Mai, Thailand – To play with baby elephants
Tokyo, Japan – To be a Harajuku girl.
Paris, France – I want to ride around with a bike and a baguette in my basket.
What is a disgusting habit of yours?
I buy CoffeeMate Sweet Cream creamer for my chai tea. Any time I need a sugar-fix, I drink it straight from the bottle. Sometimes (emphasis on sometimes), if I don’t have milk for my cereal, the creamer comes in real handy. Oh you gross, girl. Also, I eat Nutella…out of the jar.
