11 Questions from Baron of Style

1. What is your dream vacation?

I have been wanting to go to Bora Bora which is located in the French Polynesian Islands for the past six years after seeing pictures from a couple’s honeymoon there. If you’ve seen pictures of the resorts there before you’d understand why. Literally looks unreal.

2. What’s your earliest memory?

My parents used to own a Vietnamese restaurant in Des Moines back when I was little so I remember running around the kitchen and restaurant every day after preschool. One of my favorite places in the restaurant was underneath the fish tank (it was a huge 100 gallon tank). I would spend hours underneath it listening to the water of the tank, coloring, and napping.

3. Dream profession?

I would love to work for an entertainment magazine or TV station like Cosmopolitan or E! News.

4. If your home caught on fire, what 3 things would you grab before running out?

I would definitely bring my memory box I have in my closet that has past photos, notes, cards, and meaningful gifts I have received from people I love.  Also, I’d bring my favorite pillow, and my hard drive.

5. Who’s your idol?

Both of my parents. They came to Vietnam as teenagers having a limited education and now they wtheyork 50+ hours a week in order to give my sister and I everything we have ever needed and more. They are the reason why I never take money for granted and every day I work hard to ensure I can give back what they have always given to me.

6. What’s your favorite trend?

I am loving a neutral fall outfit paired with a colorful sneaker or beanie right now. I think it’s a classy  and easy way to spice things up but not have it look tacky.

7. If money wasn’t an option, what is the craziest thing you would buy?

Expensive shoes, lots of them.

8. Do you have any pets?

At my house in Des Moines, IA, we have a large pond in our backyard with about ten koi fish.

9. Who would win in a fight: Taco or Pizza Slice?

If it is a macaroni and cheese pizza slice from Mesa’s pizza, that would definitely win.

10. Would you ever dye your hair an unconventional color (pink, blue, etc.)

Never! I honestly don’t plan to ever dye my hair. As an Asian American, I think after dying your hair once, it’s really difficult to get it back to your natural dark brown/black hair unless you wait to completely grow your hair out.

11. Do you believe in ghost?

Yes, and thinking about them scares the crap out of me.
