How did you get started blogging?
I started blogging almost five years ago, I was spending all my time on social media and my mom actually gave me the nudge to turn it into a full fledged website. I’m so thankful that she did or I probably wouldn’t be blogging today.
In addition to great style and life advice, you have loads of great Houston-centric content on your blog. What are your favorite kinds of posts to write?
I love writing about food! Food brings people together and makes people so happy! Plus, I love to eat (shocker, lol) so, it's a win-win for me!
Time for a lunch break! Do you have a favorite dish at East Hampton?
Hands down, I've gotta go with the Lobster Roll! So yummy!
It’s time for a night out – where do you go in River Oaks District to get dressed and accessorized?
I absolutely love BAANOU! The clothes are so original plus Maryam, the owner, will personally help style you and make you feel like a million bucks walking out the door!
When entertaining an out of town guest, where’s the first place you take them to in Houston?
I normally take them to Lee’s Fried Chicken & Donuts! It’s the cutest place that serves fried chicken between two glazed donuts. It’s so different (and delicious). Everyone loves it!
Any movies you’re dying to see at iPic this summer?
I love anything Disney! It was fun to see the new Winnie the Pooh movie, Christopher Robin. I’m a sucker for any comedy too, so I’m excited to see Night School.
Who is your style inspiration?
Lately, I’ve been obsessed with 80's & 90s style. It's so bold, but still fun! I love that shoulder pads and big hair are making a comeback!
It’s hot in Houston! When you go for a scoop at Amorino, what do you get?
I’m normally a cookies n' cream kinda girl!
You’re a self-proclaimed beauty guru and have a photoshoot coming up- What type of look do you request at NARS? Natural? Full glam? Give us the deets!
I’m all about full glam! Gimme all the coverage, lashes and bold lips!
