SS: What inspires you? If I had to pick one thing, it would be the city of LA. I love my city and I'm constantly inspired by its stories, its people, its clusters of subculture, and of course, its eclectic street style!

SS: What is your favorite social media platform and why? I love Instagram as the platforms allows me to curate stories using beautiful imagery while encouraging constant creativity.

SS: What is the most challenging aspect of maintaining a successful blog? Staying focused! As a blog grows, so do the distractions. It's very tempting to say "yes" to opportunities that may not be on-brand or RSVP to ten different events a week so I always assess each opportunity carefully. For me, it's about being disciplined and making sure that I'm spending my time wisely working on my long-term goals.

SS: Where do you see the digital world in 5 years? World domination! I'm only half kidding! It's hard to predict exactly what the digital world will look like but I definitely think the role of bloggers will strengthen and only grow from here. I think there will be a greater pollination between digital influencers and their presence in traditional media platforms. And I also think VR technology will somehow play a big part as well.
