Hello lovely readers!
Meet Trisha! ShadesofKassie (YouTube) has always been one of my absolute favorite channels/people to watch. Back in January, she did a “Best of 2012” series of videos featuring Trisha. It was very clear that Trisha knew her stuff and would be such a fun person to follow if she ever started up a channel. I remember seeing in the comments, “where is Trisha’s channel? Will Trisha start up a YouTube channel?” etc. Sure enough, she did! I was thrilled when I first realized this and have watched everything she has posted since. Lucky for me, Trisha was gracious enough to answer my interview questions. As you will see in her responses, she is such a happy-go-lucky kind of gal. I adore her demeanor and love for all things beauty. Here we go!
This picture above is Kassie (from ShadesofKassie) and Trisha together. Love!

Favorite alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverage? Well...I love water...like a lot. But right now I'm also really into the blood orange San Pellegrino over ice from Coffee Bean. My other favorite thing to drink is fresh juice!
Biggest challenge? Finding enough time to be creative. I'm an artist so finding time to paint and create when you work full time is tricky!

Guilty pleasure? Chocolate. I think I eat chocolate everyday...and staying in bed! Sometimes my life is so hectic and full that I will take a Sat and be so lazy and just stay in bed as long as possible!
Something you want the readers to know about you? Oh gosh...I don't know...well, I think I am super funny...and I collect shoes. :) Something I'm really proud of is my education. I have a BA in Psychology and an MM in in Theology. Something else interesting about me is that I've been to 20 countries and in July will add 3 more after a trip to Africa.
I am an auntie to 8 nieces and nephews and a sister to 3 brothers, 1 sister, 1 brother in law and 2 sisters in law. Which means I have a big amazing family! But I am closest to my mom!
Favorite animal? Pets? I'm not an animal person...at all. But I think unicorns are interesting.
Thank you SO very much, Trisha. I appreciate the time you took to do this and I know the readers/followers do as well.
