Overalls from Missguided
Iâ€™m 18 years old and from Orange County, California.
Where did you grow up and how did that shape you into the person you are right now?
I was born in and spent the first half of my life in The Bay Area and the other half in SoCal. Theyâ€™ve both had such a big impact on my style and attitude. NorCal is more laid-back and SoCal is a bit more fast-pace. Thatâ€™s my personality right there: chill but can get little crazy.
What is your favorite IG to follow for fashion inspo?
I donâ€™t really follow anyone for fashion inspo. Sometimes Iâ€™ll be creeping on Instagram and see something random and itâ€™ll influence my next outfit but for the most part I donâ€™t follow anyone specific.
And for hair & beauty inspo?Â
My hair and beauty is the same as my fashion style. Iâ€™ll be on Instagram and see something I like, screenshot it, and try it out adding my own twist.Â
Which IGÂ account do you think is the most creative and artsy?Â
@est525pm. Itâ€™s full of cute pictures and quotes.Â
Which hot guys do you follow?Â
CrownÂ your Snapchat King and Queen?Â
Can I crown myself Snapchat King and Queen?Â
Who would you say has the most underrated Instagram?Â
I think @madebyjulianmedina is underrated for sure. Heâ€™s a photographer from New York and he has so many awesome shots of the city. It makes me want to go to New York so badly because Iâ€™ve never been.
What is your beauty secret?Â
Grapeseed oil. I use it to moisturize my face and I use it on my hair to maintain frizz and add shine.
Read us your last DM.Â
â€œU look like u either needa be in a vampire diaries Typa show or atl 2 or something ur dope p much what Iâ€™m saying.â€
How do you feel about people comparing you to Rihanna?
Itâ€™s beyond a compliment! I do not deserve to be compared to such a queen. I personally donâ€™t see the resemblance but I appreciate the compliment.Â
Do you get annoyed when people ask you your ethnicity?Â
Not at all. Iâ€™m proud to represent my ethnicity. Iâ€™m Creole and Ukrainian.
Post and delete?
Iâ€™m the most indecisive person Iâ€™ve ever met when it comes to positing pictures on Instagram. I post and delete way too much. I should be banned from Instagram just for doing that. I always warn people to not turn on my post notifications.
