Vogue Style Q&A: 37 Random Questions with Stephanie Blanc

So, if you follow Vogue's popular guerilla-style Q&A interviews, which feature some of Hollywood's most notable celebrities, then you probably noticed that their interviews are always comprised of 73 questions...Buttttt ya girl's pressed for time, and I am doing this blog post in honor of my birthday month where I'm turning 37, so it seemed quite fitting that I inverted the numbers. Plus, I'm definitely NO celebrity (so we can certainly switch things up a bit eh?), and I can't give y'all alllll my tea at once! I'm more of a slow-burn type gyal, so you're gonna have to get to know me bit-by-bit haha.

So without further ado (!!!), here are my answers to some of the most random questions that I could find on the internet. I hope you enjoy getting to know me and my quirky-self behind the scenes, and that I am able to make you chuckle in the process. Who knows, we might even find some commonality between us regarding some quirks!
