What is the one biggest pet-peeve?
Tardiness, I appreciate when people are on time, and I always make a point of arriving early.
What’s a great fashion tip that you can share with The Fashion Records readers what would it be?
Pay more attention to the fit of your clothing rather than the size/number. When you clothing fits you well, you always look more put together and confident. Another tip: you don’t have to break the bank to look fashionable and stylish! Frequent your local thrift and consignment shops you will be amazed what you can find.

Uh… .maybe JAIL… anywhere with the right person can be romantic and fun
