This is going to sound very harsh but at this stage in your life, do NOT make decisions based on other people. You don’t know what’s going to happen. People change and that’s normal. Do you know how many girls would kill to be in your position? Don’t choose lightly.

Shop Jeen (dot) com! Only the best!

ohhappymess said: First off, fabulous blog. I really enjoy reading it! Just a quick question—where did you get your mustache themed iPhone case? I'm in love with it. Thanks!

Hi - thank you! My “case” is from Sociey6. They have some super cute prints. I wouldn’t call it a case, though. In no way does it really protect your phone. I would recommend J.Crew’s cases - they’re protective and really pretty.

agirlnamedraven said: Hi Nicole, I love your blog and I really admire you. I would like to know, how did you get so many fans/followers on here? Did it happen slowly or right away? I just started a blog, because, at the moment it seems like the only way to get a head start on the fashion career I want. But it's a little frustrating knowing that only a few people read it. Did you ever have this problem?

Hi there! So, I don’t really have as many followers as everyone thinks. You know, it seems like that because the followers I have are always checking in and stay on what I’m doing. Believe it or not, this time last year I only had 1,000 followers! Crazy, huh? 

However, if you’re blogging because you want people to read, people aren’t going to read. It’s as simple as that. I’d highly suggest trying another route to your “dream career.” Best x

The blue one I wore once? It’s actually an eyeshadow. Apply a layer of Vaseline then with your finger, pat the eyeshadow shade you want.

It all depends on which allows your jeans to brush the floor without dragging. I have a pair for both.

Aw, how cute! I think a special date night at Bianca should be in order. If it’s not too cold, I would suggest row-boating with hot chocolate in Central Park. I’ve always wanted to do that. Try some museums. Maybe even The Cloisters? I really hope you’re coming when it’s warm, all those things would be ten times more fun.

Have fun, pretty! xx
