Vogue 73 Questions Parody
What’s your usual Starbucks order?
Depending on my mood, I alternate between ordering a Venti Iced Mocha with Almond Milk or a Berry Hibiscus Refresher.
What does your work station look like?
My actual job is behind a Mac desktop computer and space is cluttered since I share this space with several co-workers. If we’re talking homework, my workspace is typically in a sunny spot next to a window at the school library. Finally, from a blogging perspective, I’m typically holed up in a cafe or snuggled up in my bed typing away on my laptop.
Coffee shops like Cafe Nero a favorite for blog writing & planning

Loaded nachos with cheese, chicken, jalapenos, olives, scallions, lettuce, spicy chicken or pulled pork, guacamole, and salsa.

I’m a makeup junkie
