20 Things You Don’t Know About Me

Fashion blogging can often create a façade. You see me 100% of the time doing what I do maybe 20% of the time. With an 80% gap, there’s a lot more to my life and who I am as a person. So in the last few months, I decided to include more of my personal life in my blog.

Today, I’m going to continue shining light on the other 80% of my life with 20 facts you might not know about me.
