Random Facts

Since my first post was a bunch of random facts, I’ll write 5 fashion random facts and 5 random facts about myself.

1. My favorite designer is definitely Betsey Johnson. Her style is so whimsical and fun. I also love that she does cartwheels down the runway at her shows. I also love that you can get her dresses for really cheap at her outlets. My prom dresses were both from her.

2. Elvis Presley is my favorite musician.

3. My favorite store is Goodwill; I love the variety of clothes and the treasures you can find.

4. My favorite part about living in the United States is that you can get all different types of food and cuisines so easily. When I interned abroad in Switzerland, I had a really bad empanada and sushi craving.

so excited that Nando's came to the US!

5. My favorite chain is probably H&M. I love the European and trendy feel to it. I think it also has a lot of different types of clothes (casual, business, formal) and different styles.

6. I really want to visit Korea and Brazil.

7. I would much prefer to wear a skirt/dress than pants. I don’t know why.

8. I did the Color Run last year and it was so fun!

9. I would have to say my favorite summer trend is overalls. I forgot how comfy they were and it’s super fun to figure out how to style them.

10. I am addicted to coffee and tea and I go through phases where I prefer one of them and drink it almost exclusively.


What is your most worn hairstyle?
Probably a messy bun, but since I’ve had it shorter, I’ve kept it down a lot.
Do you false tan? If so what is your preferred method of application?
Do blondes have more fun?
I would hope not from a brunette’s perspective.
What is your favourite accent to hear on a YouTube video?
Probably Australian.
What is your favourite book?
Infinite Jest- although it’s more of an experience than a book!
Dogs or Cats?
Favourite High Street cosmetic item?
I love Prestige’s lipsticks! Great colors.
Favourite High End cosmetic item?
I really like the Urban Decay Primer Potion.
What do you think of cosmetics being tested on animals?
I don’t think that cosmetics should be tested on animals – whatsoever. I’ll let Elle Woods talk for me.
Would you rather be too hot or too cold?
Too cold, but it is the middle of the summer, so I’d probably change my mind in the middle of winter.
