Questions proposed by Jess

1) What is your favourite restaurant? I’m a foodie so this is difficult to answer. La Piazza Dario for Italian, Kobes for Japanese and steak, Gothams for the best steak you will have in your life, Memphis Blues for BBQ, Via Tevere for pizza, Browns for cheap drinks, and Chill Winston for drinks and appys if I feel like spending a bit more.

2) Who inspired you to make your blog?  This is a bit of a long story but a professor I had last semester came up to me and suggested I start blogging. I already had a WordPress account but didn’t use it. She told me she always loved my papers because I drew examples from different forms of media and had an understanding for it and that I should share it with others. All my life I thought I wanted to be a teacher but after two years of being a teacher’s assistant I realized it wasn’t for me and that I wanted to do something involving writing about beauty, fashion and popular culture. Or the PR and Marketing side, but definitely something creative. The dream would be to work for a company that encapsulates all these things such as Man Repeller or The Beauty Department. I started blogging as something to put on my resume and showcase my writing skills and creativity, I was also inspired by my favorite bloggers. I can’t pin point one person because its been an accumulation of people, my favorites are: Leandra Medine from Man Repeller, Alex from To Vogue or Bust, Monika from The Doctors Closet, Laura Buy Now Blog Later, Jillian Harris and the DIY queen herself Martha Stuart.

3) Do you prefer winter or summer? Love dressing for winter, the boots the coats, the scarves.. I die. But I hate the cold so I’d have to say summer.

4) Who is your favourite music artist? I’ve recently jumped back into my Phillip Phillips obsession

5) What one thing do you want to achieve in your lifetime? Have a career I love and start my own little family.

6) What beauty product have you bought and been most impressed with? Urban Decay Naked Skin,  Nars eye shadow primer, and Lush Angels on Bare Skin face wash (that stuff is magic in a bottle)

7) What country would you love to live in/visit? So cliché but my family is Italian so I would love to go there.

8) Do you take part in any sports? If so which ones? I use to do everything under the sun, skating, dace, gymnastics, volleyball. But now its just oxygen yoga.

9) What was/is your favourite subject in school? When I was in high school English, but in uni sociology.

10) If you could change anything about yourself what would it be? I wish I loved fruits and veggies more, that would make being healthy so much easier.

11) What is your favourite accessory? i’m braking the rules again and saying 3, all are necklaces my sideways cross Stella and Dot necklace, customized name necklace, and arrow necklace that I have no idea where it’s from because it was a gift.
