A : So Jordyn, what is a character quality that you love about yourself?
J : I think it's funny that I'm super awkward sometimes. I feel like that is something that I would usually say that I hated about myself, but deep down I really do think it's funny. When I'm super awkward I just create a really awkward atmosphere and its like I'm just entertaining myself haha!
A : I know I feel like I can be like that too, and it's just super embarrassing.
J : Yeah, you have to just learn to accept the things you don't really like about yourself sometimes and learn to laugh at them instead.
A : Which can be quite often haha... Okay so since you have an incredible blog called TheDesertViolet, what is your favorite part of being a blogger and which post is your favorite that you've written?
J : Okay... I wrote this piece in my blog about the fashion industry and the makeup industry that I like the most.
A : You know, that specific article is what really made me want to start my own fashion blog, your perspective was just so fresh and inspiring.
J : Aw, thank you! I love that. Yeah, I really liked that one. I just felt like it was a perspective that I wanted to bring to the table on my blog, because so often people assume girls that wear makeup and go crazy about it are fake or their insecure. Like they have to cover up their face. That isn't untrue in some cases, but also girls like it to have fun. To me it's a way of art, of expressing yourself. That was my favorite to write, to bring a new perspective to beauty. I think it's just so often that it is the opposite, and I want the different kind of perspective to be known and embraced.
A : Mhmm, I really think you've embodied that well and it was so apparent through that post.
J : Yeah. And to answer my favorite part of blogging, I just love fashion. So anytime I get to work with a company, wether it's clothing or makeup, I just love being able to support them and be able to speak for them. I also love doing photoshoots and taking pictures, or putting cute outfits together. That is the whole reason I started my blog, to put together outfits I love.
A : What's your favorite part of your body?
J : Okay this is going to sound weird, but I love my wrists! Haha I think arms are really pretty and I have a tattoo on my wrist, which may be why I chose to put it there too. Watches are also my favorite so I love to wear them and pair them with my wrist tattoo!
A : I love that that question just says so much about you that I never knew! Are watches your favorite accessory?
J : Yeah, most likely. I'm just obsessed with them. Like every time I see one, even if I have one similar, I still will want the other one haha, so I have so many of them.
A : What is a big epic fashion failure that you have had?
J : Oh, where to begin! I feel like I have so many.
A : Ha! Why do you think that is?
J : I feel like you look back on your life, and you remember the ugliest combinations you put together and you're like, oh my gosh why did I ever think that was cute?! Now, I wouldn't even consider going out of the house wearing a lot of what I have before.
A : But you know one of the reasons why you can say that now and know it's fine is because you've been gutsy and tried new looks.
J : That's actually true, yeah. I have always been gutsy in what I wear I feel like. Oh, I just remembered the perfect failure. My freshman year of high school, I had this whole vellore outfit, like the jacket and matching pants and they were all soft. And it was hot pink.
A : Did it say Juicy on the butt?
J : haha no it didn't! But I went to school with it on like all the time. It was really bad.
A : What's been a big epic fashion win, or something you were just really excited to wear?
J : I was honestly so excited about the birthday photoshoot! With the balloons and the fluffy coat. I call it my muppet coat, cuz it reminds me of what a muppet looks like. It was my favorite.
A : Oh my gosh you're so right! That shoot really turned out great.
J : Yeah it did I loved it.
