After participating in the FTF Community blog event--Full Time Fabulous all the way--I decided that I wanted to be a part of other similar blogging communities. I've perused sites where I've seen bloggers write about FBFF, or Fashion Beauty Friend Friday, but I never felt like I had the time to really embark on that venture until now!

So this is my first FBFF post but most likely not my last. The theme for this Friday's post is to mark the one year anniversary of FBFF by answering the same set of questions that were asked this time last year.

1. Which celebrity (celebrities) do you look to for fashion inspiration?

I usually get my inspiration from clothes on a rack or bloggers online, but when I do look for celebrity inspiration I tend to go with the always fashionable Zoe Saldana. Back in my style muse post last year, celebs like Zoe, Rihanna and Paula Patton were inspiring style for me. I think celebs like Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez always have flawless makeup, and I've recently become quite a fan of Mila Kunis and her lovely hair!

2. When it comes to your own personal style, what inspires you?

My personal style, whether that be day-to-day outfits or ensembles for events or nights out, is usually inspired by a combination of what I see on the racks in stores, what I see in some of my fave fashion bloggers' outfit posts, and what I actually own in my closet. Sometimes I already have the clothes I want to wear in my closet, but I look at bloggers to give me the inspiration, or even nudge, to pair certain things together--like color blocking or stripes or prints.

3. How do you hope to inspire your readers?

That is what Oh to Be a Muse is all about--inspiring readers. I hope people come to my site and are inspired by not only what I wear, but also how I wear it. I hope they see my ideas and build from them to create their own unique ensembles. Since I also write about makeup, skincare, fashion deals, nails, interviews and editorials, I hope that there is something for everyone on my site. So I think what I write about and how I showcase it will inspire others--and if it's not doing that then please let me know!
4. Outside the realm of fashion who/what inspires you?

Aside from fashion, I am also truly in love with and inspired by music. When I was little and my friends and I would play the game of "would you rather be blind or deaf?" (seems eerie now), I would usually go with blind because I couldn't fathom not being able to hear music. I sing and write original songs, so maybe one day I can combine both music and fashion to make something uber inspirational!

5. And since Idol is ending… Which songs inspire you?

Well, since I was already on a music kick, I'd have to say that I really like a variety of songs from artists like M.I.A., Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Vampire Weekend, Aaliyah and T.I. But one song that always gets me is "Joyful Girl" by Ani DiFranco. And I'll always rock out to PJ Harvey.
