What type of camera do you use?

Canon 5D Mark III

I have a series on my photography HERE


Who takes your photos?

My hubby shoots all my street style photos.

If you are looking for a street style photographer and live in the Los Angeles area, send him an e-mail at anthony@startswithx.com for inquiries.


What’s your advice for new bloggers?

I have a series on starting a blog HERE.


What do you use to host your blog?

I have my own domain and hosting account through Synthesis, while using WordPress- this gives me the ability to have full control over my site. I recommend you own your site if you are looking to start a blog (rather than using a blog publishing service like Blogspot or Blogger).


What Instagram filters do you use?

I use VSCO, Snapseed and Instagram editing tools to edit photos for Instagram. Check out my top 5 filters for VSCO HERE or my post on growing your Instagram following HERE.


Do you have any tips on finding great items at a thrift store?

Go when you have time to look, I go piece-by-piece in an area I want to find something, whether it’s the denim or blazer section. You have to have time to look otherwise it’s overwhelming with all the clothes shoved together and that’s also when I find my hidden treasures. I also live in the LA area and sometimes bigger cities have more of a selection based on what’s dropped off- but I’ve also thrifted in the middle of nowheresville in Texas and found a great jacket- so you just never know!


How tall are you? I can’t tell sometimes what size to order.

I’m 5’10 and I usually wear items in a medium or large to make sure they aren’t too short on my arms or legs. I say always order a size up if you’re buying something online and unfamiliar with the fit of the brand, I’d rather a jacket be a little oversized than too small.


What makeup do you use daily?

I’m not an expert on beauty products, but my daily routine consists of Koh Gen Doh Moisture Foundation, a little Benefit highlighter for my cheekbones and Cle de Peau under eye concealer plus caffeine running through my veins (helps with puffiness? Not sure, but love my morning espresso just the same).
