LL: What does being an influential style blogger mean to you, and what’s next for the evolution ?
NA: It means more than anything anyone could possibly imagine. I was first going to school for journalism and once I saw my fashion blog starting to lift off, I decided to completely switch to fashion and focus all my energy on that. To be able to touch peoples live by doing what I love and most importantly just being myself and have them not only accept me but admire and love me for it, really is a dream. The next evolution for me? Well I'm constantly changing, right now I've been focusing on launching an entire remodel of my blog and website so that's consumed a great amount of my time. Other than that just trying to outdo myself each time to bring new product to my followers.
LL: What is your favorite part about creating content?
NA: Being able to be myself and express myself. My all time favorite part of it is when I wear a certain outfit, I will have my followers send me pictures of themselves wearing an outfit similar to mine saying I helped them be able to wear an outfit with confidence. It really is worth all the hard work I do.
LL: What do you do when you aren’t working on your blog?
NA: I barely don't have any time off from working on my blog but usually I'll be on Skype with my parents since they still are living in Florida.
LL: What is your current style obsession?
NA: I say anything black and gold, especially Middle Eastern inspired pieces. I also am obsessed with lions so my door knocker lion earrings I am also obsessed with.
LL: Share something your readers might not know about you.
NA: I'm a perfectionist. I'm incredibly confident with who I am and how I look but I'm extremely hard on myself when I don't reach my full potential in anything I put time into. Something they might not also know is I'm obsessed with sandwiches, jellybeans, cupcakes, and unicorns. My favorite sport is boxing and I listen to music every single time I pick out my outfits.
LL: You are such an influential and inspiring blogger. What’s the most memorable response you've gotten from a reader?
NA: I love this question. My most memorable response would have to be a girl whose entire family suffered from anorexia, she told me she got the habits from her family members. She saw my blog and wrote me to tell me how she can live her life for the first time. I busted out in tears basically after reading that.
LL: What do you want your readers to take away from your blog?
NA: Confidence, self-empowerment and self-worth. It’s important to gain an idea of who you truly are and not care what other people think.
LL: You said you listen to music while picking out your outfits. Who are your favorites to listen to right now?
NA: Haha You have the best questions!
-Kanye West & JayZ- Who Gon Stop Me
-Kanye West & JayZ- Why I love You.
-Chris Brown- Don't Wake Me up
-Lady Gaga-Born This Way (I always listen to it)
LL: If you had to choose a theme song for this phase of your life, what would it be and why?
NA: Ahhh! I love that you ask a lot about music because so much of my inspiration comes from it. There would be so many songs considering I have so much going on right now but Lift Off by Kanye West would be the main one.
LL: What's your best styling advice for women who might not be sample size?
NA: Be sure to dress for your body type and dress according to your personality. Fashion can be a way of expression if you let it.
LL: What's the best piece of advice you've been given or have given yourself?
NA: You don't have to compare yourself to others to acknowledge your accomplishments and for people to recognize your success.
LL: Favorite quote or mantra?
