IMG_3411Today 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

Leslie Mann, Nicki Minaj, Cameron Diaz and Kate Upton have nothing to do in 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

3. Bloomindales

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!




  1. I found you through the Fashionista Award since I was also a nominee. I can’t believe you haven’t been blogging for a long time! Your blog looks amazing and put together. My blog is just shy of 3 months old but I still have so much work to do. Well done! You have great photos too. 🙂

        I’m glad too. I love discovering great new blogs and I’m glad I found yours! 🙂

    1. I am so sorry it took me so long to reply to this!! thank you so much! I’m so glad you like it 🙂 I think I must have responded in my head, but forgot to actually physically get on here, lol – so sorry about that!
