Can you believe it’s already almost been an entire month of twice weekly chats here on the blog?
Since I’ve relaunched these posts, I’ve wanted to do a little “about me” post for those of you who are new and may not know much about me! So when I found Vogue’s 73 questions, I thought that would be a great way for us to get to know each other a little better! Unfortunately, this post doesn’t come with a fast-paced and witty video like the actual Vogue interviews, but I think it’s still a great way to get to know each other! Plus, it felt a little bit like throwing it back and filling out a xanga-style quiz… which you know I’m all about. 😉
