A typical day in my life includes… grinding at my 9-5, and finding pockets of time to work on the blog. I can sometimes break away from the grind and socialize.
I was born… in Hollywood, California. It’s probably why I dress like a movie star everywhere I go. You never know where you can get discovered!
My favorite thing about Arizona… is the winter weather. I’ve lived in the cold and I don’t like it. I’ll deal with the hot summers here but I’m grateful for the pleasant weather we have in the winter. I mean come on 70 degrees in January, priceless!
I’m listening to… Adele’s new album. I cry every time!
My family… is funny, sarcastic, silly and loving. My mom feeds my dog boiled chicken so I’m afraid of how much she will spoil my future kids.
If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be… Lauren Conrad. She seems relatable and I would love to pick her brain about BUSINESS!
One thing I cannot live without… my dog. Hope the hubby doesn’t read this, lol!
When I was younger, I wanted to be… a supermodel, gymnast and girl scout troop leader. I was ambitious, OK!
I’m inspired by…female entrepreneurs. I grew up in a family of medical professionals. I want to be the first female entrepreneur in my family.
The one person who motivates me is… my mom. She is tough on me and always wants me to strive for the best.
If I could change anything in the world, it would be… the food we eat. We eat a lot of CRAP!
The perfect day would be… sitting on the beach with my dog and husband.
My first job was…at Kmart. It was horrible!
My favorite escape…is to an island. The best one is Ko Samui, Thailand.
My life…is crazy busy but I love every moment of it.
I’m currently working on…a big project for wannabe fashion bloggers. Stay tuned to Stylista Fitness to find out more!
Always… be yourself!
Favorite Quote… He asked me, “What’s your favorite position?”. I answered “CEO”- Sophia Amoruso
Biggest Dream…is to own a fitness studio/fashion boutique!
My Pet Peeve(s)… when people leave empty toilet rolls. REPLACE IT!
