Questions Jonia Asked Me:
1. What is your favorite app to use? For blogging or personal use.
I love Instagram and Pinterest for personal use. I’m always scrolling and saving things that are pretty and make me happy. For blogging use, I love Bloglovin and Pinterest because I get some much information from fellow bloggers.
2. If you can only wear one makeup brand for the rest of your life, which brand would you choose?
I don’t usually wear makeup so I don’t have a favorite brand.
3. What is your favorite thing about blogging?
I love shooting the photos and the videos and that aha! moment when the final post/video comes together
4. Who is your celebrity crush?
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. I love beefy guys (haha)!
5. If you can travel anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Thailand! It looks like the perfect combination of tropical oasis and adventure
6. Who do you get inspiration from when blogging?
I always think of Folake of Style Pantry and Jennifer of the Native Fox when shooting. They are so elegant and unique in their posing and styling. When it comes to writing and hard work, I’m actually inspired by my own mother who has always pushed me to pursue my passion and my career at the same damn time!
7. Do you have a talent? If so, what is your talent?
I like to say I am multi-talented. My biggest talent is my ability to find the positive in almost every situation. I am also a pretty good model if I may toot my own horn.
8. If you were in the circus, what kind of performer would you be? (Clown, tight-rope walker, etc)
Apparently trampolining is a circus performance (I googled that) and since I am m extremely clumsy, that sounds like the safest bet!
9. What is your favorite Disney movie?
Alice in Wonderland (the 1951 Version) or Hocus Pocus
10. Cake or Pie?
Pie all the way. I really dislike cake and pies are the best form of dessert ever!
11. What inspired you to start blogging?
When I was in middle school, I realized I wanted to work in the magazine and/or media business. I loved fashion magazines and either wanted to model in them or write in them (both, maybe). Then in high school, I discovered fashion bloggers and immediately thought “This is like an online magazine! I can do this. I have a computer and a digital camera” and that’s how I got started.
