I am an avid foodie, movie lover, and pop culture junkie.
What is unique that's not in your bio?
I am absolutely terrified of clowns, flying monkeys, and have an irrational fear of being eaten by sharks!
How do you define cool?
Cool is cutting edge, something that few people know about.
What is your secret to uncovering trends?
Blogs are a great way to get information about things that are happening "now", instead of finding out from the mainstream later.
What are your tips for writing a juicy post?
Write with style and enthusiasm. You need to show passion so other people can understand just how juicy this information really is.
How do you reset to be creative?
I have been known to rap a few Lil Wayne songs from time to time, it gets my creative juices flowing.
What inspires or excites you?
