I love the diversity and freedom I get from fashion.  It is such a fun way to express yourself.  I would have to say I have loved fashion ever since middle school when expression became important to me. 

3.What inspired you to start your own blog?

I wanted to be able to remember all the special garment and accessories I had before I had to part with them or they got damaged, lost, or I grew out of.  A way to scrap book memories and outfits without sticky glue.

Currently listening to my husbands new single Deadliest Weapon by Nik Frost.  Also, Santigold - Creator, Massive Attack - One Love, and The Kills - Black Balloon
