Q: I love your style but can´t afford what you wear. What are your favorite inexpensive brands?
A: I totally get the struggle. My top two favorite inexpensive brands/websites would be ASOS and Zara. Zara literally makes up over half of my closet! I have quite a few items from ASOS too. They both have free shipping and returns (so, that is a plus). I also believe both are having major sales right now!
Q: I have watched all your Instagram tutorials and cannot wait for you to make more, but until then what are your favorite beauty/makeup Youtubers?
A: I watch makeup tutorials online all the time. They are great to learn about new products, get inspired, and just a fun way to kill time. I love Jaclyn Hill, Tati, and Nikkie Tutorials. I watch others, but those are my favorites!
Q: What do you use to edit your photos for you blog and Instagram?
A: I use Adobe Lightroom, VSCO, and Face Tune. All the absolute best for editing — hands down!
Q: How do you put super cute outfits together on a daily basis?
A: A lot of it is experience, after you have been doing it for a while you know what looks good together and what styles you like. Obviously what you may like, may not be what I like. Fashion sense and style is all relative. Yes, there are trends, but an individual´s style differs from the next; that is what I love about fashion! It is an art to expressing yourself. So, first ask yourself what you want your personal style to be. Do you like bohemian, feminine, casual, preppy, vintage? Once you have figured that out, I would recommend starting your outfit with simple everyday pieces whether that be a white t-shirt, a black sweater, or a button up, etc. When you are having difficulty finding the right outfit, start basic. Then that is when you can start to incorporate your personal style through accessories. If you love the bohemian style pair a white tank and jean shorts (the basics) with a fringe vest, statement earrings, and some cute lace up sandals. I know my style is constantly is changing, if you are the same way I would totally recommend incorporating your style into your look with accessories, that way you still have all the basics, but you can change accessories depending on your mood. Finding your style and putting outfits together will take some trial and error and finding what you like and what your personal style is. With some practice you can easily find outfits you love. There are some days that I do not love what I am wearing, but just rock it with confidence and don´t wear it again! Some of my top tips: If the main pieces in your outfit are simple dress up your outfits with some cute accessories (belt, jewelry, hat, vest, jacket etc.). If you have a ruffly top or beaded pants (something not simple), don´t overdo it with accessories. That is when you stick with some simple studs and a cute necklace and let the outfit do all the talking!
Q: What do you do with all your old clothes?
A: I typically give my clothes to Good will, pass them down to my sisters, or sell them on Poshmark. I have thought about selling them on my blog, what do you guys think?
Q: What is the hardest thing about blogging?
A: There are a lot of difficult parts, but also a lot of rewarding aspects. I am working currently on talking my blog to the next level, that is actually quite difficult. It will most definitely be rewarding when I accomplish all that I need to.
Q: What daily perfume do you wear?
Q: What is your favorite season and why?
A: I love Fall and Winter, nothing is better than booties, chunky sweaters and deep red lips. I love the fashion during these seasons, the holiday food, the family time, and the Thanksgiving and Christmas Season. This is my absolute favorite time of the year for so many reasons.
Q: What is something that most do not know about you?
A: I am super quirky and love to have a good laugh, I may seem serious on the outside, but once you get to know me I am all laughs and jokes!
Q:What is one thing you cannot live without?
A: Peppermint Oil – best essential oil know to man. I often get nauseous or get headaches and peppermint helps with both, I use it on a daily basis!
Q: If you could only use one skincare product what would it be?
A: Either my Turmeric Spot Treatment Stick or my Lavender oil. Both are linked on How I Keep My Skin Clear.
Q: What is your go-to snack?
A: My go to snack is Skinny Girl Butter Popcorn or a KIND bar.
Q: What are some basic outfit essentials every girls needs in their closet?
A: Every girl needs a classic pair of black and nude pumps. Jeans are an essential that you need to invest in, splurging on a good pair of jeans ends up saving you money in the long haul. The Key to finding a good pair of jeans is making sure they have stretch. My favorite denim brands are Mother, FRAME, and AG. A Good pair of black dress pants are vital along with a white button up. (I know these sound very much like business attire, but it is all about how you style it and the cut/fit of the clothing). Below I have linked my favorite essentials I talked about.
Q: What is your favorite bag you own?
A: I have to say my Louis Vuitton Keep All 55 bag is my favorite, it holds some much stuff and is great as a carry on or weekender bag!
Q: What do you keep in your purse at all times?
A: I always have hand sanitizer, hand creme, tissues, lip gloss, blotting powder, cough drops, sunglasses, pens, and a rosary. I always have more, but those are the essentials I always have.
