Megan from DonatilaRose

1.Have you got any beauty, makeup and hair tips and stylish secrets?
i use hotshot tools tourmaline curing irons, curls always last and hair stays smooth.  1 1/4" barrel for my waves and 2" for a sexy straight-from-the-salon look.  don't be afraid of overgrown roots, they add more style to a look.
i like to put mac's shade stick in shimmersand at the inner corners of the eyes, diorshow mascara is the best, and NARS' blush in deep throat gives such a sweet look. 
for style, mix styles and silhouettes.  for example, pair a loose fitting tee with a tight mini-skirt or feminine pieces with more "edgy" accessories.  

2.When did you first fall in love with fashion ?
my mother always tells me i was super picky with what i wore when i was little and i would throw fits and insist on wearing what i wanted.  so as young as i could remember.

3.What inspired you to start your own blog?
honestly, i only discovered this world of fashion blogging when i google searched for a pair of jeffrey campbells a little over 2 years ago and came upon chictopia.  from there i found sincerelyjules and her blog inspired me to start my own. 

4.What makes you a successful blogger ?
i'm flattered :)  but i wouldn't say that i was, there are others far more successful than myself.  i really enjoy taking photos and sharing everything with everyone and i'm so appreciative of the feedback and followers that i have.  i will say though that my looks that get the most feedback are the ones i put together when i'm super inspired.  there was a look that i was excited to shoot that got 11,000+ notes on tumblr.   

5.What are your dreams and aspirations?
i do want to open an online clothing shop one day and i've always wanted to do hair.  right now i'm focusing on my kids so i'm just going to see what i could squeeze in.

thinner layering pieces, smaller cross-body bags, sunglasses, gladiator flats and just in case, a couple sexier or dressier things.
