FYI - I've followed Corinne's blog for quite some time now and her posts are truly a joy to read. She's just a beautiful person inside & out and it truly comes across in her blog. If you haven't subscribed to her blog already, definitely check it out. Her posts will really put a smile on your face.
Answer: Nicole Warne of Gary Pepper Vintage - I adore reading her blog and LOVE her style. Everything she wears is classy, feminine, and wearable. I think she is so well rounded. She's in a relationship, writes beautifully, travels, has friends, own's her own business, and simply has FUN doing it ALL.
2. What can you not leave the house without doing/having on your person?
Answer: This may seem a little OCD, but I'm always checking to see if I've unplugged the iron, blow dryer, toaster and flat iron. It's probably due to question #5.
3. What is one thing you wish you could change about yourself?
Answer: I really love myself inside and out. I do have my quirks (weight, wanting longer hair etc.) But I hold the power to make those changes. So, no excuses for moi. To put it bluntly, I just have to get off my ass and get it done. LOL But as far as a nose job or any kind of major
4. If you had the time & money, what is one thing that you would want to learn how to do?
Answer: To be a fabulous pastry chef and cake decorator like Peggy Porschen. Sign me up for Le Cordon Bleu London! That's where she graduated from. Plus, I love London!
5. What is your biggest fear?
Answer: Burning Up! Is that clear enough? No. Ok, catching on fire! Also, having to jump off of a really tall building or anything! Oh gosh, I don't even want to think about it. Maybe I should always carry a parachute and fire extinguisher with me at all times. HaHaHa
6. Worst fashion crime you've ever committed (as in so bad, even you knew you shouldn't have but did anyway!)
Answer: Neon in the 80's! I had the bows, shirts, jelly shoes and all those bracelets. But I was super young back then. I'm sure I can be forgiven :) Right?
7. Favorite song of the moment:
Answer: This is Love by Will.I.Am - I really like the instrumental version. For some reason, I prefer the instrumental versions of all my favorite songs.
8. If money were no option, what single item would be in your shopping cart THIS SECOND? :)
Answer: A Classic Chanel Bag! It's classic. It's gorgeous. It goes with everything.
However, as I get older, I see things more as investments. If I had to sell it, I would get a good return on it.
9. If you could live in any decade besides the present, when would it be & why?
Answer: The 80's - It was a super fun era, Duran Duran ruled, John Taylor was going to be my husband and the stock market was truly great back then! I would've invested heavily. HaHaHa
10. When you were young, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Answer: A Model! I adored Kimora Lee Simmons. She modeled for Chanel under Karl Lagerfeld. In my book, she could do no wrong. HaHaHa She was very different and unique for her time. I could relate to her and drew inspiration from her looks and style.
11. What inspired you to/why did you start your blog?
Answer: The first fashion blogs I literally stumbled across (looking for other personal blogs) were four ladies from Vancouver, Canada.
It was Mina of Faboulista (her new blog is now Glitter In My Veins); Jen Tam of Her Waise Choice , Cara of A Fashion Love Affair and Cee of Coco and Vera (she just moved to Paris, France). I still read and comment on Cee's blog. Those four always had so much fun together and their blogs were great. I was like, what is this!?! I couldn't get over their pictures. That's when I hopped on the fashion bandwagon.
Again, I did some personal blogging before this, but thought beauty and fashion blogging would help keep me up to date with the newest things out there and re-ignite my love for fashion. I use to eat, breathe and live fashion. It kind of got thrown to the back burner when I went through graduate school and started my career. So it's nice to be back and I think it will help me get back on track. It's a lot of work, but I'm enjoying it.
