Interview

Define your sense of style in three words.
I would define my style as chic, fabulous and sophisticated.

What do you wear to feel most confident?
I always wear a red lip. I try to never leave the house without red lipstick. I carry it with me at all times. It makes me feel the most confident - it is truly my armor.

What is an app on your phone you can’t do without?
The one app I cannot live without is my cognitive behavioral therapy app (Pocket CBT). I am very big on taking care of your mental health and it's so important to me. I am very happy that I have a platform that I can discuss mental health (issues).

What’s the best career advice you've ever gotten?
The best career advice I've ever received is from my mother. She always said to me "You don't have to be the prettiest, you don't have to be the smartest, but you have to out work everybody.”

Share a misstep that you made in your career and how you overcame it.
The biggest mistake I made early on when blogging was I trying to do everything at once. I wasn't sure who I was and I compared myself to other successful bloggers. I realized that you have to stay in your own lane and carve out your own niche. When I tuned in on that...I became very tunnel vision with my own goals and became more successful.

What do you wake up every day looking forward to?
I look forward to caffeine.
