Nominated for an award! + interview

AH! I have been nominated for the Liebster Award by Two Easles! THANK YOU! It’s times like this that make me even more passionate about my job. It’s so great being here, talking to you guys about things I love. Thank you everyone for the support you have given me in my little corner of the internet. You are all wonderful!


Without further adieu, here is an interview with the one and only Tiffany Fajen (that’s me), herself:

  1. What do you blog about? Do you sell anything through your blog or do you just blog?

My blog’s focus is beauty and fashion, with the occasional spotlight on local businesses in Portland, OR. I started out watching YouTube videos of beauty gurus way back in 2009 and since then I have started my own YouTube channel  and this blog to get my own ideas out there for you all to see! I want to educate my readers on new beauty and fashion trends and showcase my own interpretations on the fashion world. Currently I don’t sell anything, but I would love to make and sell clothing and jewelry..that may happen sometime in the future. :)

     2.  11 random facts about yourself?

I was born in Sacramento, California. 2 I am 5’ 10” tall. I married my husband at the age of 21 in the suburbs of Portland in July of 2013. I once babysat a goat named Copper. I can drive a manual (stick-shift) pretty comfortably. 6 I wear a cat-eye pretty much daily. 7 I drink black coffee. I volunteer at my church’s high school youth group. 9 I go crazy for some really awesome stationary. 10 The only detention I ever received was for too many tardies. (Senioritis, what can ya do?) 11 I love the smell of lavender.

  1. What is something you’ve been loving lately? Any new obsessions?

I’ve really been focusing on inner beauty. See my last post about that, I kind of rant a bit. ;)

  1. What is it you love most about blogging?

I love teaching others about my beauty routines and why I love the products I do. Seriously, when I’m in the beauty aisle in Target and I hear someone say, “I just dont really know where to start,” I’m there telling them all of my favorite things. I also just love taking fashion risks and I want other women to know that they can too! There is no such thing as a “hat person,” okay? Everyone is a hat person! Just try things you love.  I guess I kind of answered question 1 again, huh?

  1. If you had 3 wishes, what would they be?

– Go to a real grown-up fashion show in Portland, London, LA, shoot, I’ll even aim for Paris!

– Work with an inspiring, uplifting beauty and/fashion community (magazine, product, etc.)

– Unlimited natural resources on earth (we humans kind of messed up in that category)

  1. Where does your blog inspiration come from?

All sorts of places! Runway shows, cute shops, awesome companies I follow on Twitter and Instagram, YouTube, and notions of my own train of thoughts.

  1. What is one country in the world you would like to visit? Why?

I would love to visit England to go to London Fashion Week and explore. Heard it’s hip over there.

  1. If you have kids or pets? Tell me about your babies.

I don’t have kids or pets, but you will probably see Howard every now and then. He’s my husband’s family dog. He’s a Bichon Frise but he acts like a hard-to-get cat. Sassy little guy, we love him.

  1. What do you do for a living? Your day job?

Currently, I am only blogging and video blogging. I’m also in the process of teaching myself how to sew and I want to be involved in the fashion community here in Portland!

  1. What is something you do when you need to take time for yourself?

I give myself a little spa session! So I run a warm, deliciously scented bath followed by nail treatments, Netflix, and if I’m going out, I’ll take my time to do my makeup. :)

  1. Where do you see yourself in five years time?

Five years is a long time, but I see myself working as a blogger/voice for a company I stand behind. I also may have an online shop for clothing or jewelry that make. Blogging and video blogging would be my main job, but who really knows! I’m excited for whatever is in store! Oh, and I will have a dog.

Again, I am so thankful for the support here. And without saying too much, there are some really amazing things coming for this blog very soon!

I am nominating the following bloggers, so give them some love!
