What I Do, Job-wise: Freelance writer/journalism grad student/professional aggregator of useless celebrity and entertainment news. 

What I Do, Fun-wise: Aggregate useless celebrity and entertainment news, write things, read stuff, heroically attempt/tragically fail at most yoga inversions, talk fashion with my two-year-old niece.

My Motto: Get confident, stupid.

My Anti-Motto: You don’t win friends with salad.

The First Movie Star I Ever Had A Crush On: If by “crush” you mean “obsessive decade-plus-long love affair,” then Leonardo DiCaprio.

My “celebs to make out with” list: 1. Please see above. 2. Robert Pattinson, with or without vampire accouterments. 3. Good Morning America’s Josh Elliot (I’m a journalist).

The Most Played Song On My iTunes: “Pursuit of Happiness” – KiD CuDi/ “You’re a Wolf” – Sea Wolf/ “Heartbeats” – The Knife / The entirety of ABBA Gold.

Last Book I Read Without Skimming Any Parts: The Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy and I’m not even a little bit ashamed about it.

My Most Worn Item of Clothing: Most worn ever? A very chic and subtle florescent, sequined shoulder-padded number circa 1989, hands down.

Beauty Products That I Hoard: Maybelline mascaras. Especially Full ‘N Soft, One by One, and Great Lash: Lots of Lashes (not, I repeat, NOT the original Great Lash. It may be Allure readers’ choice, but it ain’t mine!).

I smell like: Burberry Brit and the Extra Sugarfree Apple Pie gum referenced above.
