What motivated you to start your blog?
I used to own an online clothing store and was looking for new ways to advertise. That’s how I discovered the blogging world. After following a few fashion blogs, I thought it looked like a lot of fun and would be a great way to showcase some of the items from my store. Since then, I have decided to focus solely on my blog and close my store. I have loved every minute of blogging and look forward to all that blogging has to bring in the future.

How does the city you live in inspire your day-to-day fashion?
Being a California girl, I think I have the California casual style. I grew up in a small country town and prefer jeans to dresses any day. Since moving closer to the city, I think my style has gotten away from the country look and is a little more city-ish.

Who are your style icons?
My top style icons who always look amazing are Julianne Hough (she’s my favorite at the moment), Emma Stone, Jessica Alba, and Olivia Palermo.

Name one piece every woman should have in her closet and why?
A black leather moto jacket. It makes any outfit look instantly cool and chic. You can wear it with jeans or over dresses and skirts. Plus, it will be in style for years to come.

What items do you always carry in your handbag?
My wallet and business cards are the essentials along with pepper spray and an emergency kit (my sister’s job is in emergency preparedness so she makes sure I’m prepared). You will also always find my favorite lip color, Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey.

What is the best beauty trick you’ve ever learned?
Coconut oil! I put in in my hair from root to tip once a week. I leave it in for a few hours and then wash my hair like normal. It keeps my hair soft and prevents it from getting heat damage. You can also use coconut oil as an eye makeup remover, as face moisturizer, or as body lotion. Another favorite trick is using corn starch to set me makeup.

Tell us… what is something not many people know about you?
Not many people know that I have a lot of foot problems. I’m in a foot brace the majority of the time and my feet are always in pain. I’ll eventually have to have surgery but I’m not going to let any of that slow me down.

What are your favorite prints or colors to mix? Do you have any tips?
I have really been in to neutrals lately. I love mixing different neutral shades and colors. I also love to mix stripes, leopard, and plaid.

When you need a little pick-me-up, how do you add sparkle to your life and feel good?
I turn on music and dance. I sing along and pretend I’m actually a good singer.

What has been your biggest ‘pinch-me’ blogging moment?
For me, just about every moment is blogging has been a ‘pinch-me’ exciting moment. Whether it’s a company I get a chance to work with, a feature in a magazine, collaborating with other bloggers, or receiving emails from readers, I get so happy that this is what I get to do every day. Every time I get a new email regarding my blog, I call my mom and sister to tell them about it because I’m so excited.
