    Get to Know Me Q&A: Food Edition

    For this series of Q&A posts, I thought I’d change it up a bit and make a food-themed edition! I love reading get to know me blog posts so I hope this gives you more insight into who I am! If you’re new here, find out more about me here or check out my other Q&A posts. What’s your go-to breakfast? I have a massive sweet tooth in the mornings, so I like granola and yogurt or a fruit smoothie (but let’s be honest most days it’s just a bowl of cereal…) I also really love to bake so it’s not unusual for me have a banana bread or blueberry…

My aunt bought me my first Olivia by Ian Falconer book as soon as I could read, and I received a new Olivia book every birthday. I couldn’t believe that someone wrote books and named them after me!

    My Morning Skincare Routine

    Mornings are rough. I am the opposite of a morning person. So finding a meaningful morning routine was a challenge. Especially during college, I was doing good to look presentable for class, let alone complete a 10 step skincare routine every morning. Since I’ve taken a more minimal approach to my lifestyle lately, I’ve been able to create a skincare routine that’s easy and effortless! First, I always wash my face, obviously.
