Name: Alexandra Evjen
Title: Blogger and Pinterest Influencer
City you live in: Chandler
A typical day in my life includes… snuggling and caring for my kids, blogging, pinning, Instagramming, cooking for my family, cleaning and quality time with my husband.
I was born… in Los Angeles, California.
My favorite thing about Arizona… is the desert. The cacti, the sunsets, the smell after a rainstorm…What’s not to love?
I’m listening to…whatever is on pop radio that is worthy of dancing to with my three year old daughter.
My family… is the most valuable treasure I have.
If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…Grace Coddington. I would love to know more about her creative process and how she always managed to create something new after decades of styling and art directing.
One thing I cannot live without…my phone. There is no way I could run a business and be a stay at home mom without my phone.
When I was younger, I wanted to be…a fashion designer, and then I learned I’m way too impatient to sit at a sewing machine.
I’m inspired by…any man or woman that is able to stay authentic and true to who they are in the midst of a society that is always telling you what to wear, buy and do.
The one person who motivates me is…myself. I believe that your motivation for action should always come from your own heart.
If I could change anything in the world, it would be…that everyone would know what it is like to be loved unconditionally.
The perfect day would be…a lazy morning snuggling with my family, a big delicious brunch, and then adventures in 75 degree Arizona weather.
My first job was…a hostess at Fire + Ice
My life…is meant to help and love others.
I’m currently working on…creating lifestyle images for Neiman Marcus.
Always… say thank you.
Never…ignore your gut.
Favorite Quote…”Her success is not your failure.” – Latasha Haynes
Biggest Dream…to sit front row at a Chanel runway show or walk the red carpet at the Oscars.
My Pet Peeve(s)…not giving credit where credit is due.
