Can you tell us a bit about yourself and your background?
I am passionate about fashion, interior design, beauty, and travel.

I also have a degree in English from UCSB and a degree in Interior Design.
What 3 words would you use to describe yourself?
Motivated, Passionate, Creative
What Profession other than yours would you love to attempt?
Well I have pretty much done everything I have wanted to do already, but if I had to choose something additional, I have always thought it would be fun to be a tv host
What is your favorite quote?
“A person has to keep something to herself, or your life is just a layout in a magazine” Grace Kelly
What inspired your blog?
I always had several friends tell me I should start a blog because I had random girls asking me what I was wearing when we would be out at brunch and in general so I finally decided to do it and am so happy I did!
What is your favorite social media platform and why?
Instagram because I am a very visual person and love looking at photos
Where do you find inspiration for blog posts?
I get them from everyday life, magazines, travel, and really just whatever pops into my brain
What do you think it is about your blog that keeps people coming back for more?
I try to give each post a dose of my personality in the writing portion so that girls feel like they know me and can relate better.
How does a brand get your attention for a feature?
It really depends but as long as it is a brand that I love and its on brand for me then I would love to work with them!
What do you love most about blogging?
I am so passionate about the entire process from inspiration for a post, to shooting with my photographer, to writing each post and putting my favorite photographs in… It really has to be something you love and can commit every single day to.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
I would love to have my blog continue to evolve and eventually collaborate with one of my favorite brands on a capsule collection and perhaps even have a coffee table book!
In your opinion, what separates a great blog from an unsuccessful blog?
Definitely daily content! I think to have a successful blog you must post 5 days a week and also make sure it is engaging content with high quality photos. I think people like to have a routine and check back everyday and see something new. Photos are very important because most people are very visual and may not even read what you are writing about, yet they will look at every single photo.
