10 Facts about In Rainbow Order author, Annie:
How did you get started blogging?
After graduating in December, one of the first things on my to-do list was to start a blog. I launched In Rainbow Order shortly after the start of the new year.
Where do you hope your blog goes from here?
More than anything, I want my blog to be a community. As much as I love to share my ideas with others, I also have a lot to learn from my followers. I want to start discussions and collaborate with other bloggers to create content that is meaningful!
What are some of your favorite blogs to follow?
Cupcakes and Cashmere is probably my favorite blog of all time, and Emily Schuman is one of my biggest inspirations. Temptalia is also a great beauty blog for in-depth product reviews and high-quality swatches.
If you could have dinner with one person in the whole world, who would it be and why?
There are so many celebrities and world leaders that I would love to meet, but I think I would choose my grandmother. She passed away when I was young, and I’ve always wished that I could have a conversation with her as an adult.
What are your five fashion staples? (things you can’t live without!)
- My favorite pair of jeans from Madewell
- My Tory Burch riding boots
- Tory Burch Reva flats
- Neutral camisoles from Nordstrom BP (I layer them under everything!)
- Colorful scarves
What are your beauty staples?
What’s your number one most played song on your iTunes?
Ordinary Love by Ben Rector. His newest album, The Walking In Between, is fantastic.
What’s your guilty pleasure?
Reality television and, more specifically, The Bachelor.
What’s the best book you’ve ever read?
I don’t read as often as I should, but The Fault in Our Stars by John Green is a recent favorite.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
A friend once shared the following quote with me: “Everything will be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end.” It’s such a comforting reminder, and one that I always refer back to!
I’ve had the incredible privilege of knowing Annie on a personal level. She is one of my closest friends, my mentor, and my sorority sister. We’re also from the same tiny hometown which is pretty incredible considering we met over 1,000 miles away from home!
Annie graduated a semester early this fall and immediately landed a full-time, paid internship with CRG Events in Seattle, Washington. Tomorrow (March 1st), Annie will be embarking on an adventure of a lifetime to Washington, D.C. to work as an Educational Leadership Consultant (ELC) for a brand new chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta at Georgetown University.
Words cannot describe how much Annie has inspired and encouraged me over the short year and a half that I’ve known her. An incredibly brilliant, selfless, poised, articulate, gracious, and ambitious woman, I hope that one day I can be like her.
