What is your life motto?
Try your best at everything you do.
Festival season is coming up who are some of your favorite music artists right now?
Some of my favorite artists at the moment are LANY, Sigrid, Troye Sivan, Julia Michaels, The 1975, MUNA, The Chainsmokers, and Anne-Marie. Last year I was lucky enough to see The Chainsmokers, LANY, and MUNA. I’ve seen Troye once, but I’ve never seen Sigrid, Julia, The 1975, or Anne-Marie! They are definitely on my concert wishlist.
Who is your style icon?
My style icons are Vanessa Hudgens and Selena Gomez. I’ve also been loving Taylor Swift’s style recently. They all have such unique, trendy styles that continue to inspire me. I also get lots of style inspiration from my fellow bloggers. I love when someone is outgoing with their fashion and continuously growing and experimenting with new trends.
If you could travel anywhere in the world where would it be and who would you take?
I have lots of places I’d love to visit, but my main dream is still to visit Europe. I’ve never been, and I want to see it all! I don’t fully appreciate museums yet, so I might wait until that happens. I’d much rather see architecture than a painting even though I’m an artist myself. I would love to blog up a storm in Europe!
I would take someone who loves photography, has a passion for exploring, and is a pleasant travel companion.
What are your beauty and wellness necessities?
My beauty necessities are L'Oreal® Paris Brow Stylist Definer and Mary Kay Lash Intensity® Mascara. I also love Mary Kay’s TimeWise® Matte-Wear® Liquid Foundation. My wellness necessities are BioClarity Clear Skin System to keep my skin clean and clear and Crest 3D White Vivid Radiant Mint Toothpaste to keep my teeth strong and white.
If you could see any artist in concert who would it be and why?
I have wanted to see The 1975 for years now! I think they are incredible musicians and would be unbelievable live. I got my parents into their music too, so it would be cool to go with them. Julia Michaels would be my second choice. She is amazing, and I know every song of hers. Also, anytime LANY or Florence and the Machine is playing in Arizona, I’m there!
What are some of the things you do to keep yourself motivated?
Comparison often leads to discontentment and discouragement. I try to avoid it at all cost. I stay motivated by doing what I love with passion and conviction and staying inspired by admiring and supporting others’ work.
What do you love about your job?
I’m a freelance graphic designer and fashion editorial blogger. I absolutely love both. I have been an artist since I can remember, and I love computers. Graphic design combines both. Fashion has always been my first love and photography has become a passion of mine as well. Blogging has been a blessing as a creative outlet. It allows me to work with some of my favorite brands like Gypsy05!
What is currently in your Gypsy05 shopping cart?
The current pieces I’m drooling over on Gypsy05.com:
Your spirit animal is?
Well, my favorite animal is a tiger. I think they are beautiful, independent, and fierce. Plus, people tell me I’m intimidating but alluring.
Describe your personal style.
My style is constantly evolving and growing with me. I tend to have a difficult time defining it with labels, but I'd say my style is urban boho, a little bit of trendy street style mixed with a lot of free spirit comfort.
