Frequently asked questions…
Where do you shop? I have a strong preference for eShakti, ASOS, Simply Be, and ModCloth. I also frequent Old Navy, Forever 21, and Macy’s. They each have good quality pieces in the latest trends, minus the sticker shock.
Who inspires your style? I’m always inspired by people who exude originality and aren’t afraid to break fashion rules like–Solange, Sarah Jane Adams, Iris Apfel, and Courtney Quinn. I’m also inspired by everyday street style.
Who does your hair and what products do you use? I haven’t had a hair stylist in years. I cut, color, and style my own hair. Throughout the natural hair transition, I tried an array of products, but my tried and true are Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Moist, Mixed Chick Leave-In Conditioner, Ecostyler Gel, Curls Refresher and Goddess Curl Gel.
Who is your photographer? Me, my wife, and I! Well, it’s my wife most of the time. You can check her out her piece of the blogosphere at The Deep End Review. I typically, use a tripod and the self-timer when I take my own photos. During events, I’ll “encourage” (ask, bribe, plead) a friend to take some photos for me if my better half isn’t available.
What kind of camera do you use? Photography was my first creative passion so I’ve used a number of cameras. At the moment I’m shooting with the Canon Power Shot Sx60, and Samsung Galaxy Note 5.
Here’s a fun fact for the road: When I started blogging I didn’t even have a social media account. My, oh my how things change!
