Today I decided to look back at my first photo I posted on Instagram for Cut Against the Grain – only to realize that my blog is only 2 months old!! It feels like it has been at least twice that long, haha. The amount of support and kind words I receive from followers is amazing and I can’t thank you all enough for how much I appreciate reading your comments.
With that being said I was so humbled to receive the Fashionista Award nomination from Mute Style – Thank you! This award was created to recognize WordPress bloggers and to help us all connect and build relationships. It is hosted by That Chic Fashion Blog – she is so young, so adorable – and so clever! You can read more about the award here.
If you would like to see my answers to questionnaire and also see who I nominated – please keep reading!
1. What motivated you to start blogging?
I’ve built my career in the Fashion industry – I currently work as a Designer, but I wanted to have a space that was solely my own… Somewhere I could express my own style and thoughts and have a way of reaching out to others who share the same interests. I finally decided to take that step and put myself out there! Let me tell you – it took a lot of courage for me to start this blog… having the confidence to design for a company, versus putting your own style out there, is SO different. I was so nervous to place my first post, but all the support I have received has made everything so much easier.
2. Favorite movies?
Oh gosh – I love comedies… I will pretty much watch any type of movie, but comedies have my heart…. some of my favorites are…
The Other Woman
3. What is your dream career?
I’ve always known I wanted to be in the Fashion industry, and now that I am a Designer, my dream would be to create my own women’s contemporary collection and sell it at large department stores. To own a business and build it from ground up would be my dream!
4. Top wish list items at the moment?
There will never be a moment that I do not have a wish list! Every day I see something I want, haha – oh the troubles of this industry… always wanting things you can’t have (at least can’t immediately have).
Kat Von D – Tattoo Liner
Wildfox – Classic Fox Wayfarer Mirror Sunglasses
McQ Ankle Strap Sandals – Crush Two-Strap City
5. Favorite television shows?
I have a lot of favorites! and I’m always so sad when the series end 😦 but here are my top three picks!
1. Sons of Anarchy
2. Game of Thrones
3. Walking Dead
6. What store do you find yourself shopping in the most?
I rarely have time to shop in store… but unfortunately with my body type, ordering online doesn’t work either! So if I do get the chance to head to the mall, I usually stop at:
1. Top Shop/Zara/Forever21
2. All Saints
7. Favorite fashion designers?
Oh boy, what a loaded question… how can you possibly choose a favorite from the massive directory of designers? I absolutely cannot pin point a favorite – I refuse, lol, but I will give 3 designers that I will ALWAYS be excited to see…
Alice & Olivia
Cushnie et Ochs
8. Describe your dream vacation?
I’ve ALWAYS wanted to go to Paris and Rome… For as long as I can remember, anytime anyone would ask me where I would go… it was always that same answer…
Maybe one day!
9. What are the goals for your blog?
I just want to build a blog that inspires others. Initially this blog was to help build confidence in myself… a place to put myself out there… and now that I have accomplished that, my next goal is to reach as many people as possible and share knowledge. I not only want them to learn from me, but I want to be inspired and learn from others as well!
10. If you had an opportunity to interview a celebrity, who would it be?
Melissa McCarthy… because she is hilarious and I think it would be super fun to interview her 🙂
You guys I haven’t been doing this blog for very long, and unfortunately the majority of who I would nominate has either already been nominated, or has too many followers! but I would like to nominate Just a Little Brit!
