Tagged by the stylish and sweet Sandy a la mode for answering 6 questions. Here goes!
1. Tell us something we don’t know about you. I’m really sensitive and it’s something that comes as a surprise to people because I come across as very confident and self assured (which I am too!). Also, I have duel citizenship because although my parents are american, they had me in Israel but moved back to NY a few weeks after I was born. 
2. What’s your favorite beauty secret or product? Ok….so I’m about to change your life. For realzzz, you guys! Paula’s Choice is my beauty savior. Seriously, I do not buy a single beauty product without first checking her reviews to see if the product really IS all that it claims to be! I am so much more informed about proper skincare and makeup than before I was introduced to her. Seriously, you don’t realize how much we buy into ridiculous beauty claims!
3.Favorite movie, song, or tv show? Project Runway for sure. After that, Law and Order SVU!
4.What is your favorite or go-to outfit? I don’t really have a go-to outfit lately because umm….my clothing collection has kind of piled up hahaha! But this is my favorite summer dress and for some reason I’m loving this outfit. Ohhh, and my maxi skirt! But the actual clothing item I wear most is this denim skirt.
5. What’s a current dream that you’re hoping to achieve? Firstly, I’d like to get my LCSW (clinical social work degree- Right now I have my LMSW. If I work under a supervisor in a clinical setting for 3 years, I can take another test to receive an LCSW). Secondly, I’d like to see my blog become more successful. It’s already become more than I’ve ever expected and I’m so grateful; I’m just enjoying the journey and excited to see where it takes me! Oh, and I’d like to write a memoir. But it’ll be anonymous for sure because it’s very personal so you won’t know about it if it happens!;)
6. Who or what inspires you? My 7 (almost 8!!) year old sister. I want to be a role model for her, specifically in regards to self love and confidence. I don’t want her to be insecure about her body like I was as a kid. I don’t want her to be another girl that talks about hating her body and needing to diet. I’m more than a body, a whole lot more than a number on the scale, and for me to model that for my sister, I need to actually believe and embody that so that she can too. Am I making sense here?
