Hey there! I always like knowing a lot about the bloggers I’m checking out. I figured having this “about me” space would be perfect for this type of case! If you were wondering a bit about me/my blog – here are some questions I get asked a lot!
Where are you from?
I live in the state of Washington. I live like 15 minutes away from Portland, Oregon though! A lot of my photos are either from Portland or Vancouver, Washington.
Where do you shop?
I keep the places I shop fairly consistent. Most of my clothes are from American Eagle Outfitters, Vans, Tillys, H&M, and/or Target.
What kind of camera do you use for photos and videos?
Canon Rebel T3i (This model isn’t made anymore – so I recommend getting the T5i). I use my iPhone a lot as well for photos!
How do you start working with brands?
Usually what happens is a Public Relations person will email me asking to collaborate. Often, I’m asked through contract to post photos that feature their products on my blog and Instagram; sometimes there’s a post frequency requirement. If there’s a paid sponsorship for a post, I’ll mark it with a (*).
How did you start blogging?
Actually, I started after a friend breakup! I needed something to throw myself into and I found the beauty community online. I began as a beauty guru on YouTube. However, videos are time consuming, and when I was in college – I never had the time. Blogging fit better with my schedule, and I came to the conclusion I preferred creating flatlay or fashion photos than talking to a camera. I still enjoy YouTube sometimes, though now that I’m a teacher – I don’t get the chance to film much.
What do you do in your free time?
I’m actually a middle school math teacher. I teach sixth and seventh grade math. If I’m not doing anything school related, I’ll usually hang out with friends
What is your haircut?
I told my stylist to give me a lob (a long bob). It’s shorter in the back than it is in the front. My hair has balayage hair color with a warm dark blonde to a lighter blonde! I’ve had this hair cut for a long time – for a while there I grew it out but I always prefer short hair!
Thanks for reading.
