describe your personal style .
comfy . pretty boring, actually .

what are the staples in your wardrobe ?
at the moment, anything that can keep my body temp above zero - denim, leggings, plush boots and superoversized sweaters .

what's your signature look ?
skinnies + an oversized sweater + slouchy booties + bright nails .

what inspires you ?
bloggggss, so much !! otherwise, beautiful magazines, inspirational people in my surroundings, pretty words and the seasons .

who is your fashion muse ?
like brittany : OLSENS . and lately i've been tracking lc sorta ? because she seems like a practical dresser .

favorite purchase of all time .
are you kidding me ? like i could actually pick .
okay well something i didn't actually purchase but was given to me : a vintage louis vuitton suitcase for my sixteenth birthday . the story behind it : i made a quick stop in a thrift shop downtown palm springs, and didn't really find too much aside from fluo tracksuits and all things lycra .. but then, behind the counter, i set my eyes on the most terrific piece of luggage i had ever been close enough to touch .. let alone purchase . anyways, i left the store without buying it, beat myself up for about a week, and then, my parents miraculously offered it to me on the morning of my birthday ! they had gone back to the store afterwards and picked it up for me . i was ecstaaatic . i don't travel much, but when i do, i'll have the perfect piece to pack my stuff into .

biggest splurge ?
i've never really splurged on much .. i guess saving up for my trip to europe ( italy and greece ) two years ago ? pretty much .

what's your beauty routine ?
frederik fekkai frizz-ease on damp hair before bed . in the morning, benefit benetint as a foundation primer, then bare escentuals spf 15 loose powder, then some blush and badgal mascara . if i remember, i'll apply a touch of gloss to perfect my pout (ahahh) .

what jewelery do you never take off ?
i wear a ring my grandfather gave me on my thumb (i even have trouble taking it off now) and another that my parents gave me when i was younger at all times .

what are you wishing for ?
for my family to be in good health .

what are your obsessions ?
a lot of things : getting enough sleep on weeknights, drinking loads of water, discovering new music ( does anybody have any recommendations ? ), party pictures ...

i was hoping kings of leon would get best rock album but unfortunately coldplay stole the show . and i love coldplay just as much as the next person, but i mean they alwayys win . it was funny though because some chick from the ryan seacrest preshow was interviewing them (kings of leon, that is) and she was like 'aren't you guys happy to be here together, four buddies instead of all alone? ha ha !' and they went 'well yeah, we're brothers, so yeah' (three of them are brothers and matthew is a first cousin) or something along those lines . and then she was like 'oh yeah yeah, right, brothers .' ahahh totally clueless .


  1. oh my god i was telling someone last night how a red-carpet-interviewer is possibly the most degrading show biz job. joey fatone? yikes.
    i wish kings of leon won too, i love those boys.

  2. omggg i wanna see your makeup sometimes then and some outfit posts? haha, great answers:)


  3. coldplay does always win! boo.
