Happy Saturday loves! I always get a ton of questions about blogging, fashion, where I shop and what I am loving. I decided that now would be the perfect opportunity, to do a little blog Q & A post for all of the questions previously submitted last week. So here goes.
What trends are you currently following ?
I am currently still loving the fanny pack trend. I thought it was over, until I moved to Europe and now I find myself searching for all types of fanny packs. I might have bitten off more than I can chew. Also, Im so loving mules and slide-ons, there are so many different styles and its perfect for a chic and trendy look. Ive listed a few of my favorite styles below:
Where do you get your style inspiration from?
I get the majority of my inspiration from street style, magazines and style/fashion books; Outlets like FashionBombDaily, Vogue and People StyleWatch to name a few. I am obsessed with Editorial Photography books from different designers and powerhouses. I especially love Vogue: The Covers.
What are your go-to places to shop?
Im a little biased because I worked in retail for years, so BCBGMAXAZRIA and Saks Fifth Avenue will always be my favorites especially for classic staple pieces. Also, if I want cutesy trendy looks and don’t want to pay an arm and a leg, I also love BCBGeneration, Nordstrom, Zara and Topshop.
What are your favorite skin care products?
I love Drunk Elephant, its super addictive. My best friend introduced me to the products, and my skin adores it.
You post a lot about vibes and mood, how do you keep the "happy go lucky" vibe up on a day to day basis?
Sometimes the happy go lucky vibe is effortless and there are times in which it can also be challenging. When it is challenging, affirmations and meditation is key. I have to dedicate quality time and silence for myself every morning, even if it is for 5 minutes. Here are some meditation apps that I love.

What do you feel the most confident in?
I feel the most confident in shift dresses, statement jackets and cutesy shoes. Effortlessly chic looks are the my absolute fav.
What foundation would you recommend for darker skin complexions?
In the past, I have used Nars, MAC and Makeup Forever. These brands have it down to a science as it relates to a variety of skin tones. I’ve listed below the types/tones I’ve personally used.
Are you currently reading any books, or do you have any suggestions on books to read?
I am currently re-reading Rachel Roy , Design your life. I love re-reading books every couple of years. So much change and growth happens within that time frame, its almost like I am reading a new book, the interpretation is always different and I discover something new each time. I would also recommend the Alchemist. Its a classic and its always inspiring.
