73 Questions

Does anybody else love those Vogue YouTube videos where they go around asking celebrities 73 questions about themselves? I’ve loved them for years! Now they’re getting a little bit annoying with all the product placements/tie-ins, but it’s still fun to get to see where a celebrity lives and what their kitchens look like and get a little glimpse into the things that they like. (Some of my favorites have been Emma Stone, Taylor Swift, Daniel Radcliffe, Olivia Wilde, and Blake Lively off the top of my head!)

I saw a while ago that Lindsay over at Bourbon & Lipstick posted her own version of the 73 questions, and it seemed so fun that I wanted to do one, too! So instead of forcing my roommate to follow me around the house with a camera and ask me the questions (which side note how hilarious would that be?!?) I’ll just answer the questions right here!
