My friend/photographer, Caroline, and I thought it would be fun to gather a list of FAQs for you guys to get to know me a little better! Here is what we came up with:
Where do you live: I am from Long Island but go to school in Vermont.
How old are you: 21!
Where did the name, First Thing Modern, come from: Before starting FTM, I always read other fashion/lifestyle blogs (and I still do). I usually read them “first thing” in the morning. My style is modern and I also love modern interior design! So, First Thing Modern evolved pretty quickly!
Why did you start FTM: Aside from having a passion for fashion, I was also going through a difficult time in my personal life last year so I created FTM as a distraction for myself. It worked! 🙂
Where do you see FTM going from here: Like any blogger, growing a following is always encouraging but I hope to just continue posting my everyday outfits to share with my readers because I really enjoy that.
Go-to outfit: Plain white tee and a great pair of jeans (destroyed or not and either legging ankle (AG) or boyfriend).
Favorite denim brand: Definitely AG! But I just discovered One Teaspoon and fell in love with their denim.
Favorite restaurants on Long Island and in Vermont: Verace in Islip and Cowfish in Hampton Bays. American Flatbread and Farmhouse in Burlington.
5 things you can’t live without: My phone, Carmex lip balm, starbucks, a tall bottle of smart water, my boyfriend
Budget friendly stores: Forever21, Zara and Topshop
Everyday makeup: I rarely wear makeup. Usually it’s just Bobbi Brown concealer whenever I have blemishes and random mascara I get from CVS. I know, so girly of me! When I go out I throw on some eyeshadow and blush, always Bobbi Brown.
Ideal way to spend your weekend: Preferably in warm weather… with my family and boyfriend, doing anything fun whether that be a bike ride, boat ride, spin class, strolling through the Hamptons, etc.
Favorite way to workout: Soul Cycle all the way! SO addicting and great workout.
Favorite workout clothes: Lululemon, Nike, and Soul Cycle apparel!
Do you have any siblings: Yes! A 17 year old sister. We are best friends.
Who is your celeb crush: Ugh, Mila Kunas. ha! Also, Chris Hemsworth
TV shows you must watch: Grey’s Anatomy, The Affair and LOST, which my boyfriend and I recently started watching on Netflix. I know, we’re late to the game.
What’s next in your life: Well I will be graduating in May (ahhhh!) so I am on the job hunt at the moment. I will also continue to grow FTM and see where that takes me.
