Thank you Megan for inviting me to your lovely blog! I'm so happy to be doing this interview for your readers and I have a little surprise at the end!


1. How would your friends describe you? My friends would probably describe me as funny, timid, loving, and friendly.

2. What is the biggest lesson you've learned about living a happy life? I’m actually still learning this lesson at the moment. But my family has been encouraging me to live in the moment. Don’t worry about the future or what you will do the next day, stay in the moment and enjoy life.


3. How did you start your blog & shop and why? I started my blog in January 2012 after much encouragement from my family. To learn more about this please read this post.I initially started it to just do product reviews but eventually developed it to include other things I enjoy such as photography and fashion.

4. What inspires you? My love for God inspires me to work hard to become a better person and to just enjoy the life I have now.

5. What would your totem-pole animal spirit be? I’m not sure about a totem – pole animal but if I had to choose an animal that describes me I would have to say a dolphin. They enjoy being around people and making them smile but they also value their alone time.


6. What are some of your favorite items in your shop or blog posts and why? If I had to pick a favorite blog post It would be a tie between my post Are We Too connected? which discusses the sudden popularity of the internet and questioning when it becomes too much and also my Dream Big post inspired by Alex Beadon, where I discuss the importance of listening to your inner dreamer.

7. How do you define success? Success for me would involve doing what you love to the best of your ability.

8. What advice would you give to new shop owners/bloggers? What did you wish you knew when you first started? Don’t focus on the numbers and ignore well meaning but sometimes harsh words from more “successful” bloggers. I wish I knew this when I started because it would have saved me so much heartache. Also just have fun!! Don't take yourself to seriously, it will just suck the joy out of everything.


9. What is a talent you have that you wish you used more? My writing skills. In school I was always told that writing was my talent. I even wrote an entire modern day Shakespeare play while in middle school. Its something I enjoyed but I have since pulled away from it.

10. What are your goals for the future {long and short}? Do you have
anything you want to change? In the future I hope to do more with my photography professionally. In the meantime my only goal is to make the most of each day.
