Jenna:Under the Florescents

Here is the first blogger in the Broadcasting my blog loves series. This is Jenna, the beautiful blogger behind Under the Fluorescents. She was born and raised in LA and has a beautiful eye for fashion. I personally adore every single outfit she posts, and I think she is wonderfully photogenic. Here is the interview I did with her. We have quite a few things in common. Enjoy! And Check out her blog Under the Fluorescents {here}.

Thank you so much for doing this! So what inspired you to start your own blog?
I began my own blog because I have always enjoyed documenting my life. My blog started off more as a space to put my inspiration and eventually I posted my daily outfits. Looking back at outfits reminds me what was happening in my life at that time. I guess my blog is partially a diary. 

Well then your diary is quite wonderful my dear! So you must look to many blogs for inspiration,What blogs do you visit often?
I have a lot of favorite blogs. Some are very well known, such as Fashiontoast, Natalie off Duty, and Snakes Nest. Others are bloggers I have made friends with through this whole experience such as Trash Bag Black, Style Kitty, and Treats and Treasures. My favorite part of blogging is interacting with people all over the world who share the same passions as me. 

I know! The interaction makes it all the more fun. So, I'm very interested to know which designers and celebrities most inspire you.
When I initially started blogging I was heavily influenced my celebrities like Blake Lively, Vanessa Hudgens, and Emma Watson. As my style has transformed and developed, I find myself inspired by Gillian Zinser, street style, and bloggers.

I love Blake, Emma and Vanessa as well! Well you have such amazing style, so I don't know how you can possibly answer this, but what is your favorite item in your closet?
I am a boots fanatic! I could not choose one favorite pair. My top two are my hot pink paint splattered Doc Martens and my Trouve boots. I found the Doc Martens for $16 at a thrift store about a month before Doc Martens came back "in". My Trouve boots I bought about 2 years ago and I have worn them to death! I call them my lucky boots.

Can't go wrong with a good pair of boots. How about you finish this sentence. I cannot leave my house without my…..
I cannot leave the house without my iPhone! As unoriginal and technology obsessed that sounds. I am currently obsessed with Instagram! Follow me @jennahug. I also love that I can check up on my favorite blogs on the go. Another favorite app of mine is 55,000 Quotes. I love quotes. I have lists, documents, and journals filled with them.

I am following you this instant! So what do you like to do to relax?
When I need to relax I like to go to yoga and focus on my breath. It really calms my mind. If the weather is nice I head on over to the beach and relax in the sand with Death Cab for Cutie, Band of Horses, and First Aid Kit.

Well this just happens to be my favorite question. I would like to know who your celebrity crush is?
Celebrity crush? Ryan Gosling, James Franco, and Joseph Gordon Levitt are definitely my top 3. 

Oh man, I think this is the beginning to a beautiful friendship or some serious competition. You have excellent taste in celebrity crushes my friend. So i would now like to know what your beauty/makeup must haves are?
My beauty must have is mascara. My eyelashes are really long but they are super light so if I do not wear mascara you can't really see their length. 

And your favorite magazine?
I have a hardcore obsession with magazines! My entire day can change if I get a magazine in the mail. A few of my favorites are Nylon, InStyle, Seventeen, and Teen Vogue

Love those as well! So I haven't have the pleasure of spending a lot of time in LA yet, but I'd love to know what are some things you love about your Home/Hometown?
I've had a love hate relationship with growing up in LA. I love that there is so much diversity and change of scenery is not that far away. I dislike how at times it can feel too crowded and superficial. In the end though, I am not sure I could live anywhere else.

It seems that you have a love for music, I'd love to know what the most surprising thing on your Ipod?
I listen to so many different genres of music. I have a love for classical like Debussy, but I live for rock and indie. I will admit that when I was 14 I was a die hard Jonas Brother fan...I tend to skip their songs nowadays. 

Ahh the Jo Bros. Good stuff haha, and last but not least, What TV show do you wish was still on the air?
There are so many T.V shows I miss from the 90's. Friends, Seinfeld, Boy Meets World, the Amanda Show! I really don't like how television today is overwhelmed by mind draining reality shows. 

Ok So its official we need to have a sleepover where we read Seventeen, watch Boy meets world,  and stare at Ryan, James, & Joseph, while we instagram. Ok I'm In!
