Wrap Dress & 11 Questions

So you guys know me pretty well, right? You know I love to wear black but have recently been trying to work more colors (mostly yellow) into my wardrobe. You know I have a love/hate relationship with fringe. You more than likely know I have a weird taste in music, love cuddling with my rescue pup, and am on medication to treat my mental illness. However, I haven't been very open lately because I don't know where to begin. (Shrug emoji.) Sometimes life gets to be a little too much, you know? When Hal tagged me to answer 11 questions about myself, I kinda shrugged it off because I feel like I talk about myself enough already. However, once I read through the questions, I thought that answering them could be a fun challenge! So here's my outfit, ft. 11 interesting questions, answered. 

What's your favorite guilty pleasure food?
While I try my best to be healthy, it's no secret that I love junk food. (Not even cool, trendy junk food like unicorn lattes or whatever-- just junk food.) Lately I've been picking up a pack of Bauducco Coconut Wafers (surprisingly vegan!) and a six-pack of Tropi-Coco on my weekly grocery store trip. They get the job done!
Where do you get your inspiration from for your blog & instagram?
I try to find inspiration in unlikely places so if we're out and about, I like my outfit, and we see a cool backdrop, we'll stop and snap some photos. My aesthetic is very influenced by French muses of the 1960's and 70's (Bardot, Hardy, Karina, etc.) but I like to be as candid as possible. I don't think I could ever live a "staged" or "curated" life-- not even #fortheblog.
What goals (personally or blog related) do you have for the rest of 2017?
At the beginning of the year, I shared a few goals that seemed very realistic, such as seeing my company get funded and buying a home. I was very close to both and unforeseeable circumstances have made it seem as if neither will be possible for a while. It's okay though, because I learned that having absolutely no control can be somewhat liberating. Instead of mourning for what could have been, my goal is to spend the rest of 2017 rebuilding and focusing on making my life better despite my circumstances. I have to get a break eventually, right? 
What is one song you know absolutely every word to?
There are a lot but perhaps the most noteworthy at the moment is Shoop by Salt-N-Pepa.
What/where is something that makes you happiest?
The ocean. Advocating for orphans. Anything that'll make me laugh.
What is your favorite hair care product?
R+Co's Sail Soft Wave Spray has been WONDERFUL lately.
How did you start blogging?
I started blogging a little over five years ago just to have a place where I could get my thoughts out. It used to be an almost completely different place: I'd share a lot of vegan recipes, stories about life, and lots and lots of random photos. It's evolved since then and I've come to love it even more.
Favorite TV show?
This is a hard question because it changes so much depending on my mood! I'd say it's a tie between Homeland, Man in the High Castle, The Office, and Archer.
What are you tips for time management with a hectic life & the blog?
It's difficult to get it all done and still have time for self-care-- but self-care is of the utmost importance-- so try to find "productive" ways to care for yourself. For me, this means cooking at least one nice meal a week. I LOVE cooking because it allows me to blend some creativity with my love for food. I have so much fun making up recipes and, of course, eating.
What is the number one place on your bucket list?
I would absolutely LOVE to visit Morocco. I'm such a sucker for the beautiful architecture, would love to experience the rich culture, and, on a nerdier note, Casablanca is one of my favorite movies.
What mantra do you live by?
Do no harm but take no shit.
