Vogue’s 73 Questions: Blogger Style

Hey guys! Hope you’re all doing well! Last week Natonya from Just Natonya wrote a tag post that was essentially a spin off of VOGUE’s 73 Question. I was lucky enough to be one of the people she tagged to also do this post, and I could not be more thrilled about it. I think posts like these are always so much fun. As bloggers we tend to share a lot, some of it being extremely personal depending on what we’re writing about. However, sometimes it’s fun to share the little things about ourselves that you won’t find in a post about home decor If you haven’t checked out Natonya’s post you can find that, here. So without further ado, let’s jump in these 73 Questions.

73 Questions with Simply Michelle

1.What’s your usual Starbucks order?

  • I’m a creature of habit so I order the exact same thing every time I go, Strawberry Acai refresher with Lemonade and light ice, the light ice is crucial. If you haven’t tried it yet you need to, it’s like strawberry lemonade for royalty.

2.What does your work station look like?

    Honestly, I don’t really have a work station. I’m currently sat in my bed writing this post on my laptop but, when I do set up one that’s more professional it’s typically at a Starbucks. I’ll pop in my Airpods get out my planner & laptop and get to work.
  • 3. All-time favorite food?

    • This is going to be such a basic answer but, I’m a basic eater so Mac & Cheese.

    4. Favorite author?

    • I don’t really have a favorite author. Reading is kinda challenging for me as in I struggle to stay concentrated (thank you anxiety). So if the author actually captures my attention and I finish the book then they are a good author in my mind.

    5. What do you think of open relationships? 

    • I’m not gonna tell people how to live their life but I would never be in an open relationship.

    6. What is your favorite video game?

    • I’m not into video games now but I was in elementary school I loved playing Aladdin on Sega. Also DDR (Dance Dance Revolution) I would always sneak into my brothers room when he wasn’t home and play it.

    7. Guilty pleasure treat?

    • I mean it’s less of a guilty pleasure because I have them pretty often but my go to treat is a brownie, from anywhere really. I don’t discriminate against brownies.
