Hi loves! For this post I wanted to stray away from fashion and style and allow you to get a closer idea of who I am. I think it's easy to post just the fun, cute, and glamorous side of my life but I also want to make it clear that my life isn't just about shoes and purses. Fashion is such a passion of mine and this blog has become just a fun way to post what I love and grow creatively while also inspiring others. Whether your passion is or isn't fashion as well, I hope my blog has served as a positive outlet for you all and most of all a place to come to to see pretty things and smile and remember to pursue what you love, no matter what that may be!
That being said, I stumbled upon this survey and I wanted to fill it out and post it for my readers considering that most of these questions I do get asked frequently. So read away and I hope this allows you to connect with me a little more. Love you guys so much!! Xo

To become a fashion authority. To live in Paris at one point in my life. To own my very own boutique in a major city. To travel the world.

To attend Fashion week in every country that it partakes in. To make my parents and family proud. To always have the means and energy to chase after my dreams. Honestly, I just want to be happy. Simple enough.
