It’s Saturday and I have nothing planned so of course I jumped into the blogosphere again. Blog Surfin is one of my favorite things to do. I meet new fab bloggers and get inspired all over again.
I’ve been following Burn The Blonde for a few months and today I decided to dig deep into her blog. I found a pretty cool post which happens to be an awesome way for you guys can get to know me better. *winks*
After you read my answers leave a comment and answer the questions too.
1 – Why did you create your blog? Hmm, well in real life I am extremely shy (who know!). I wanted to find a way to connect with new folks who shared my likes, visions, and got just as excited about those new Jeffrey Campbell platforms as I did.
2 -What kind of blogs do you follow? Of course I read the big dog blogs like WWD, Fashionista, and TheYBF but I also love reading blogs that might not be as well known. I have found most of the blogs I love via Twitter. I love personal style blogs, and lifestyle blogs. I usually take a lazy weekend day and spend it reading blogs.
3 – Favorite makeup brands? I wear MAC mineralizer FAITHFULLY. Everything else is random to what I find on sale or what’s given to me.
4 – Favorite clothing brands? That would have to be Forever 21. It’s really the only US brand that really gets trendy plus size clothing. I was recently introduced to thrifting by my stylist friend Sheena from Superficial Glamour. Once I get past the grandma smell of thirft store I just might fall in love with vintage items.
5 – Your indispensable make-up product? SmashBox lipgloss – ILLUME & EXPOSE. I am a nude lip chick.
6 – Your favorite colour? PURPLE I remember it like yesterday. It was my 6th birthday party and my mother surprised me with a gift that I could open before the party started. YAY! It was my birthday outfit. A purple jumpsuit. That was the day I fell in love with purple.
7 – Your perfume? FlowerBomb by Victor&Rolf.
8 – Favorite film? Love Jones, Love And Basketball, and Boomerang. I know EVERY SINGLE WORD to each of these movies. They were all released in my 20′s; a time where I really found out who I was and which way I wanted to go (even though that remains a constant question). These movies have become the soundtrack to my life.
9 – What country would you like to visit and why? I want to visit Japan (soon). The culture, the fashion, the food is so fascinating to me. This is definitely on my bucket list.
10- Write your own question and answer it yourself - Is your hair really grey, or did you dye it?
YEEEEEEEESSS my hair is really grey. I’m prematurely grey, it’s heredity … or whatever you want to call it. I use to dye my hair but when I turned 25 (now I am 34) I decided to embrace my “sophisticated side”. And my hair was falling out from dying it every 2 weeks.
So there you have it – ME.
