A year ago would you have thought you'd be a blogger today? Honestly I have had blogs ever since I was in middle to high know...those years when everything is more dramatic and you just feel like the world is out to get you. To me, getting this blog was just another form of expressing my interests and likes like the Xanga or other blogs I used to keep. Sadly, I deleted all my previous blogs but I promised myself I would focus on this one and maintain it. 

What do you love most about blogging? Everything! It's really fun and not stressful at all. It's basically writing a diary whenever I get the chance. I learned to hide many personal stuff or stresses which I used to blast on public. I'd have friends assume that it's about them and have them ask me. I learned posting content that I was interested in and what makes me happy (:

How would you describe your style? This was actually an interview question with Lion Step Media. I responded with what I always think about myself; I am a prep. I love school uniforms, the collegiate look with collars, even the fob outfit with the ribbons as collar necklaces. Marie Antoinette is my fashion idol. Sure she is not the designer of her extricate dresses but whoever produced them--props to you. I like the letter man jackets and the plaid skirts with the suede get the idea. I like fashion that pops everywhere. Often times people stay in their comfort zone and that unique jacket or outfit is very flashy. Sometimes I try to go out of my comfort zone. 

What's your favorite pick-me-up movie? Call me cliche but I love the Devil Wears Prada. I don't know what it is about strong, feminine woman with some Coco Chanel but it still brings my mood up. KT Tunstall, Suddenly I See helps a lot too. 

Guilty Pleasure? Justin Bieber & Cheese. I'm not ashamed of it but I know it's bad for me. Justin Bieber is too young for me but if I was a crazy pop obsessed fifteen year old like back in the days, Justin would be my future husband. Also, I indulge in cheese which cannot be a good sign for my skin and health. 

Favorite site to online shop? I loved but I got over the overpriced items and shipping. Now I love SheInside (: free shipping too!

What do you enjoy most about the Holidays? The happiness and joy that I had when I was young. Christmas tv commercials, the public decorations, and the christmas songs blasting in every shopping mall, cafe I go into just makes the whole living thing a bit more bearable. aha plus everyone is usually happy! 

What's something about yourself that would surprise most people? Hm...that's a tough question given that I don't really have that many secrets? Iono...I find myself being more sensitive than I thought to people. Even the slightest comment can create a stir inside me and often times I take it too personally. I've been working to fix that but sometimes it's hard. Often times, I end up blowing up on people and hurting relationships. Perhaps some good advice is needed. 

Any tattoos or piercings? Just double piercings in my ears. I want more but am gets addicting! 

When you're not blogging, what are you doing? Nothing really... aha usually working, working out at the gym, hanging out with friends, staying home in bed and doing a marathon of reruns.

Favorite movie snack?   At the movie theater, I have to buy a tray of nachos. $10 is worth it for me.

So the five bloggers I choose to tag is: 

A Girl You know
Bleach & Candy
Les Haute Couture
Closet in Bloom
Summer in May

My questions are: 

1. Who is your favorite band/singer or maybe stretch it out fav. genre of music? 
2. This question: if you were to eat the same thing for the rest of your life on a stranded island what would you want to eat? 
3. What pulls you out of your own comfort zone? (What is something or a past event that made you have to step out of your personal bubble and actually have to adjust) 
4. James Franco? or David Franco? 
5. What color are your nails right now 
6. Who is your ultimate favorite designer? 
7. If you could change one thing about the fashion industry or contribute something to it, what would it be? 
8. What is your belief on gun control? 
9. What kind of hopes do you have for your blog? What do you see "future-wise" in your blog. 
10. If someone paid you a million dollars, would you walk around...Sf/ LA/ SEOUL /TOKYO/ NY naked? 
11. What is a staple piece (be it a cardigan, accessories, specific shoes) that you always have to wear or wear the most often?
