Q: How long have you been blogging?
A: i've had my blog since college, so A REALLY LONG TIME. i didn't start taking it too seriously until about a year and a half ago when i launched my new site. since then i've really enjoyed learning the ins and outs of having a website, creating content, networking and working with brands. it's been a huge hobby and learning experience.
Q: What’s a typical day in your life?
A: Firstly, there is no such thing as a typical day. It really depends. Monday through Friday I have work usually between 8-5ish. Some days I work out before work, some days after work. I also do a bit of personal training (yes, I used to be a personal trainer), so one day a week I train 2 clients from 6-7AM. When I get home from work & the gym, I make dinner & shower then get to the rest of my things. Writing blog posts, planning out posts for the coming days, emailing back and forth with brands & editing photos. Some nights I’ll watch some shows (will answer my favorite shows in a bit) or read a book (will answer that too).
Q: Who’s your current style icon?
Q: what is one trend you absolutely love and wish it never went away?
A: there are so many. platform sneakers, super bell bottoms, baseball tees, 90s style swimsuits, velcro sandals.... i can keep going.
Q: what would be your perfect day?
A: wake up & walk to coffee with my (imaginary) dog along the water. meet up with a friend to catch up over a workout. go to a spa and get massages & lounge by a pool or beach. head out to explore a beautiful town, shop & snack. go home and hop in to a tub with a glass of champagne and then get all dressed up for dinner. Head to dinner and maybe even enjoy some dancing. ahhh I think I may just be dreaming about my vacation coming up in a few weeks.
Q: what are your top love Languages
A: I loved reading about my love languages, what an eye opener when you’re dating someone much different than yourself! if you haven't taken the quiz, you totally should (here).
