I guess I’m not as open about certain things that pertain to me as I thought because, well, people still seem to ask me many of the same questions. Not only that, but I have recently gained a few more followers, so I want you all to get to know me and my character!
This is a combination of questions that I have gotten in person and online, as well as some that I think some people may WANT to ask but don’t.
I’m gonna put these into categories so that it may be easier to find what you are looking for.
WHY DID YOU START YOUR BLOG?
I started my blog as a coping mechanism for my anxiety issues. At the time I was with a guy who really encouraged me to start this thing, but now (obviously) I am not with him. I kept writing, though, because not only did it help me figure myself out, but it had an impact on people that read what I had to say. I loved writing before I ever considered a blog and still to this day have a little archive of writings and poems in my computer that have never been posted.
WHAT’S YOUR ADVICE ON STARTING A BLOG?
Write what you want to write about. Don’t worry about fitting yourself into this mold of themes. If you are passionate about anything from politics to nail polish, you should go for it. You should write about what you love even if you feel as though people won’t read it. When I first started my blog, I thought that literally no one would care about what I had to say. I was quiet and I didn’t have a support system of any kind. Do it because you want to; do it because you know you love whatever you’re writing about.
DO YOU MAKE MONEY DOING THIS?
lol no. not at the moment. I don’t really plan on doing anything with brands right now, unless for some reason one would want to do something. I’m not in this for the money HAHA.
HOW TALL ARE YOU AND WHAT SIZES ARE YOU?
I am 5 foot and 8 inches (maybe creeping to around 5’9″), or around 173 cm or so. I usually wear smalls in looser shirts, mediums in tighter shirts. In jeans I’m around a size 29 or so, or roughly a size 6 or 8 (that depends as well), and if all else fails, I’m usually a large or a medium in bottoms. Shoe size is around a 7.5 or an 8.
WHO DOES YOUR HAIR?
When I’m in WV, Brooke Nangle (@hairbybrookenangle on Instagram) cuts and colors my hair.
I have yet to find a stylist I trust to dye AND cut my hair in KY, so if anyone has any recommendations, let me know!
WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR CLOTHES?
Most of my clothes are from random places. I wear a lot of vintage or secondhand clothes from Goodwill or other specialty shops; this is where the bulk of my clothes are from. I also love to shop at F21 (I like buying their jewelry because I lose stuff like that ALL THE TIME, and theirs are super cheap), TJ Maxx/Marshalls, Altar’d State (their sales section isn’t bad), Urban Outfitters, Madewell, and other random places. Honestly? I’m the type of person that will go into every store in a mall and take a look, even if their style doesn’t look relatively NEAR my style.
My shoes, though, I almost ALWAYS get them either online or at Journeys (thats where most of my Doc Martens are from. Fun fact: I own four pairs of shoes from that brand.)
DO YOU SERIOUSLY DRESS UP EVERYDAY?
Yes. I like to look my best and wear what I want. I never got the freedom to in regular schooling because of social things and dress codes. I go comfortable every now and again, but 9.8/10, you will find me in my own personal style doing my own thing.
WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR FINDING YOUR OWN STYLE?
You know that feeling you get when you see a piece of clothing that makes you happy? Like I don’t know, it makes you feel confident when you put it on and makes you want to take little Instagram pics of yourself in coffee shops with perfect lighting; thats the type of clothing to get because it makes you feel confident and happy. And if that item is too expensive? Look for something similar, or in that style that is more in your budget.
Also, never settle. I just now found a pair of overalls that make me feel comfortable and confident. It took me a year and a half to find a pair. Don’t worry about rushing your style, just always be on the lookout for pieces that interest you.
WHAT MAKEUP DO YOU USE?
It depends to be quite honest with you. I have been collecting and using makeup for YEARS now. If you want details about a certain look that I have on my Instagram or something, you can message me and I can give you ALL of the details.
ARE YOU SINGLE?
At the moment yes. Decently happy about it to be honest with you all. That may change because I seriously am a hopeless romantic.
WHAT DO YOU EXPECT IN A RELATIONSHIP?
WHO/WHAT IS YOUR DREAM MAN?
Short answer: John Mayer. I would pay him $50 to break my heart.
Long answer: Someone genuine. Someone that (preferably) has a style of their own. It would help if we had common hobbies too.
I honestly don’t know. I just want someone that will care for me and respect me as much as I care for and respect them and will always remember that I matter. My love language is quality time, so I would love to be able to go to many places and see new things. Someone that has time to plan small things like that; it could be to another state or just down the street, I’d be happy either way.

“VIDEO GAMES HUH? LOL WHAT VIDEO GAMES DO YOU PLAY?”
Not going to lie, when a man asks this, I get sort of irritated. Most of the time they tend to believe that I honestly don’t enjoy playing video games or that I just try to sound cool.
