Where do you live?
I was born & raised in Plano, Texas and lived there until I was 22. I now live in San Francisco with my boyfriend Zach, and our little fur baby Cooper.
Why are you in San Francisco?
I moved here without a job after college to follow Zach. He took a job with a medical device company, and after you date someone since middle school, you kinda know to just follow them lol. I met some people out here and asked them to connect me with anyone hiring. Luckily someone had a friend at Sephora! After that, the rest is history!
Where do you work?
Sephora Corporate! I work in the buying office on the Fragrance team! GO FRAGRANCE! If you ever have any questions about different scents, feel free to reach out 🙂 I feel like I eat, sleep, & dream about fragrance now. No but really, I would work for free. This is my hands down my dream job. I truly would never leave because I literally LOVE waking up and going to work.
Why & When did you start your blog?
I started my blog February 2016 & have been forever happy with my decision! To me, it’s not about getting “big”, this is truly just something I like to do & such a great hobby. If I had 15 followers, I would still be posting outfits on Instagram and updating this site.
It has been hard to move to a new state knowing nobody, and my blog has kind of been my outlet. I started it because I have always loved fashion & beauty, and I wanted to share my tips & tricks with whoever wanted to know!
Where did you go to school?
Zach & I went to the University of Arkansas together. Had the best four years of our lives & met some amazing people. I majored in Marketing and he majored in Biology!
When did you meet your boyfriend?
We met in 6th grade in Plano Texas! We have dated on and off since the sixth grade, but currently we are almost at about 7 years (since Junior Year).
Who takes your photos?
Zach or my mom! My mom comes in town a lot and loves to help me where she can. And then on the other days my poor Zach has to stop watching football to come help me 🙂 I have never hired a professional photographer because my rent in SF is 6x what my rent was in Arkansas and AINT NO BODY GOT TIME FOR THAT!
What kind of dog do you have & where did you get him?
I have the fattest & cutest golden retriever you will ever meet. His name is Cooper, and he is me except in a dog. We are the blondest kids on the block & both eat everything in site. We got him from Dillon’s Outstanding Golden’s in Michigan, and it was the BEST decision. They flew him to us (I know that sounds scary) but everything went smoothly & he is the most perfect 2 year old.
What camera do you use?
Canon Rebel T6i with a 50MM lens.
Tips for new bloggers?
Stay consistent & be original. I struggle with both of these things and I have been doing this for almost 2 years. Coming home from working all day at a job you’re fully invested in, it’s hard to stay up and type when I could go to bed & relax. I have struggled with this a lot & am trying my best to get better! I think it’s also important to find your niche. It’s easy to see what other bloggers are wearing and want that outfit as well. Be true to yourself & do what you do best!
Is your hair real?
NO! I have worn extensions for a couple years now and LOVE them. I wear clip in extensions because I love being able to take them out. I also don’t wear them to work because I work with 99% girls and no one cares what I look like lol. Message me if you have any questions because I know QUITE a lot about extensions. I have Bellami extensions, Halo extensions, Barefoot Blonde extensions, Sally’s extensions, so I have had some experience!
Are you naturally that blonde?
NO! I am a ginger 🙂 I am a true firey ginger with bright red hair. You probably would never know because I do a reaaaaaal good job of hiding it. I never let my roots get too far out and I am constantly dying it. I HATE it! Growing up with so many bullies constantly nagging you about your hair color & attacking you about it on Facebook, you would probably dye it too!
