How long have you been involved with Trim? Since September 2013; I’m currently Trim’s Web Editor!

What do you like to blog about mostly? Honestly anything and everything. My favorite posts are usually music or food related, but I enjoy writing trendspotting articles every once in a while.

Top 3 Favorite Things At The Moment: 

1. "Agora" by Bear Hands

2. Sonny & Joe's grilled eggplant dip

3. All things Disney’s Frozen (and my boyfriend hates me for it)

A fact about me: I have an unhealthy obsession with bleaching & dying my hair, and I’ve come to accept the fact that it will probably all fall out by the time I’m 30.

Major: Journalism & Media Studies

How long have you been involved with Trim?  Since the beginning of sophomore year. I wish I joined sooner!

What do you like to blog about mostly?  I love to blog about DIYs, fashion, and music.  I really can’t pick one subject because they are all really fun to write about.

What’s the one thing you can’t live without?  A green military-style jacket. I swear I have about 5 or more in a variety of styles! It’s a versatile style and literally goes with every outfit.

Top 3 Favorite Things At The Moment: 

1. Tumblr. I’m a bit obsessed with blogging on this site. It’s my way of relaxing and finding new clothes, styles, music, and quotes.

2. 90’s alternative and everything else 90s. I can’t get enough of The Smashing Pumpkins, Green Day, Nirvana, and Clueless. Also, don’t forget about 90s Gwen Stefani, she is a style icon!

3.  The Office and GIRLS. They are my two favorite shows at the moment. GIRLS just recently ended so now I can endlessly watch The Office. Dwight and Jim are definitely my two favorite characters so far.

A fact about me:  If I were funny enough, I would drop out of school to become a comedian. But since I’m not I’ll stick to Twitter and keep going to school. Follow your dreams!

Top 3 Favorite Things At The Moment:

1. Screenprinting-- my first art class at Mason Gross, and I am so in love with printing of all kinds (which is pretty in line with my love of music + the 60’s)

2. The 1960’s+70’s -- always always my favorite decades, especially for music and fashion; even interior design. Ugh, don’t get me started.

3. Allen’s Attic Treasures-- an amaaaaaaaazing vintage store in Halboro, PA, the show owner is super cool and knowledgeable, and he has everything from Japanese soldier accessories from WWII to a whole room full of vintage game consoles and a seriously choice vinyl section. I could blow literally all of my money there and regret nothing.
