Questions from Lets Fucking Blog:
1. What’s your dream travel?
Kate: I really want to do the Trans-Siberian Railway from Bejing to St. Petersburg. It’s like a month long trip, but it would be amazing.
Tay: I want to travel everywhere, but currently I would love to go to Africa and go on a safari.
2. If you had to live in other country that’s not where you currently live, which one would you choose?
Kate: Probably in the south of France. It’s one of my favorite places to visit- I’ve always felt the people are so warm and inviting and it’s absolutely beautiful there.
Tay: Somewhere in Italy. It’s beautiful and I love the food and people.
3. What’s your guilty pleasure song?
Kate: Don’t have one. I will readily admit to loving songs that people are usually embarrassed by. #noshame
Tay: ^ same. Honestly.
4. Shopping spree or TV marathon?
Kate: Ummmm shopping spree. Always and forever. I have a clothing problem.
Tay: TV marathon. I don’t love shopping- I’d rather stay in bed and watch TV all day.
5. What’s your oldest childhood memory?
Kate: Falling down on the playground in preschool and telling the teacher I hurt my patella. She laughed for about 20 years.
Tay: My dad trying to sell my legs in Paris by telling people they were pomme frites when I was three.
Questions from College Budget Styles:
1. What is currently your favorite song to jam out to in the car?
Kate: I’m big on oldies, and right now my fav is Higher and Higher by Jackie Wilson… makes me feel like I’m driving down PCH circa 1965 and Don Draper is going to pull up next to me any second.
Tay: Any Taylor Swift song (Always & forever)… also, Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen.
2. What is one thing that you absolutely love about yourself?
Kate: That I’m not afraid to do stuff that seems weird or crazy. Keeps life interesting.
Tay: I successfully keep my life drama-free. I can’t remember the last time I was in a serious fight/conflict with someone.
3. What is your favorite go to outfit piece?
Kate: My red supergas. We have a love so strong not even the white converse trend can tear us apart.
Tay: Sunglasses. Even when I feel like I look bad, sunglasses always tie everything together and make me feel put together.
4. What are three qualities in people that you truly admire?
Kate: Fearlessness, adventurousness, determination.
Tay: Passion, spontaneity, genuine kindness.
5. Where would you live if you could live anywhere in the world?
Kate: At home! Tbh my opinion is a little biased but I love LA and would like to live here when I grow up (lol in like 2 years).
Tay: NYC or SoCal ( & possibly London).
6. What is one thing that you would you do if you knew that you could not fail at it?
Kate: Run for president? Honestly I would do that knowing I could fail… most of the time I go for things even when I know the odds are not in my favor. Maybe actually I’d jump off a building and try to fly.
Tay: Become an actor. I’ve always wanted to.
7. What is the biggest challenge in your life right now?
Kate: Coming to terms with adulthood, I think. I’m not enjoying the whole ‘being a grown up’ thing.
Tay: Trying to find out what to do in life. It’s stressful trying to figure it out when I still feel like a kid.
8. What is the biggest blessing in your life right now?
Kate: As cheesy as it sounds, my family and friends! I’m actually so lucky to have friends that will fly across the country to visit me (@Tay) and are always there to laugh with until we can’t breathe. Also my dog, Coco. She’s like my baby.
Tay: My mom, cause she’s the best, and the rest of my family (including my dog Abby). Also, my friends and the opportunities that are presented to me.
