Audrey’s questions for me:
Where is your favorite place to shop for makeup and why?
Online! I love me some online shopping. There is nothing better than pajamas, wine, a puppy in your lap, and shopping for makeup! My favorites are beautyjoint.com, ulta.com, coastalscents.com, eyeslipsface.com, cherryculture.com, and of course sephora.com! (none of these are affiliate)
If you could only buy products from one brand, which one would it be? (pretend $ is no object)
Ugh! Such a hard question! I think I would go with Tarte because I trust them as as brand. I’ve only tried a few of their products myself, but they have such high standards for their products- eco-friendly, cruelty-free, amazing lasting power, adorable packaging, etc.
What is your favorite foundation?
It’s a classic: Revlon ColorStay Foundation- Both the Normal and Oily Skin. I usually have 2-4 bottles hanging around in different shades/formulas.
When is your favorite time to write for your blog? Day? Night? What do you like most about blogging?
I write almost exclusively in the morning. I get up and make my boyfriend breakfast, lunch, and coffee; take Zora out to pee real quick and then jump back in bed for some puppy cuddles. After I get up again, I feed her and Wall-E, and then come upstairs and blog. Everyday. Did you know I write for more than one blog? I also write Teal and Coral and a few business blogs. Teal and Coral is just getting started, but I’d love it if you gave it a follow!
I love everything about blogging, but if I had to pick what I like most it would be being a part of such a loving community!
Who is your style icon?
Lauren Conrad. Essie Button. Karissa Pukas. My sister. And a whole lot of strangers on Pinterest.
Do you love Pinterest? Why or why not?
Speak of the devil- It’s safe to say I’ve been OBSESSED with Pinterest since it was invitation only. It has helped me plan baby showers, weddings, outfits, Christmas gifts, Thanksgiving dinners, etc… Do you love Pinterest too? I have multiple accounts if you want to follow along!

What is your dream job?
It might sound lame, but this is my dream job. I’m currently telecommuting for a company doing their social media and new dealer accounts, and blogging. It’s the best. Eventually, I hope that blogging will become my full time job.
Who is your celebrity crush?
Hint: It’s a girl, and she’s super famous. Jennifer Lawrence! My boyfriend refers to her as my ‘girlfriend’ whenever he sees that she is in a movie we’re watching. We have the EXACT same birthday, but I can’t find what time she was born…. I could be a few hours older or younger.
What beauty trend do you wish would just stop and go away?
There is nothing that comes to mind.
What beauty trend would you like to see stick around or make a comeback?
I was so happy when colored mascaras started showing up in drugstores again! I know it sounds silly, but I love it. TIP: They show up best if you use some sort of a white mascara primer (like L’Oreal Double Extend) first, and then coat the colors on.
