♡ Welcome to my blog! ♡
Hi, I’m Taylor. I’m the writer and creator of TaylorDorothy.com, my home for all the things I love & find inspiring.
I started this blog in 2013 as an outlet for my makeup obsession in college. It has evolved a lot over the years, and I’m glad I’ve stuck with it! I’ve been blogging for 5 years now, and I love documenting my life.
Here’s a little Q+A so you can get to know me! I’d love to get to know you, too, so please leave me a comment and say hi!
✿ Where are you from?
I’m a Jersey girl. I was born and raised outside of New York City in northern New Jersey– the land of the best pizza, bagels, and shopping! I moved to Hawaii during high school and loved life on the island of Oahu. Now I live in Austin, Texas, which I LOVE! Austin is magical- it has that southern charm where everyone is friendly, but it’s also a liberal bubble where people are open-minded and accepting. Not to mention the perfect weather and endless healthy eating options!
✿ What do you do for a living?
Right now, I am writing my third book! My first teen fiction novel was also my adventure in self-publishing, and now I’m seeking representation for my work.
I’m also a blogger and Instagrammer with a focus on affordable personal style and a fun, healthy lifestyle.
✿ What are some of your favorite things?
I’m an introvert who loves breakfast tacos, sunny days, and Sprinkles Cupcakes. I am a classic girly girl and prefer to be in a dress or skirt, with a coffee in hand. Pumpkin Season is my favorite time of year (you know… like when stores get pumpkin flavored everything? AKA fall? 🎃). I love reading and writing, and trips to the makeup store.
I love to cook and bake, and some of my best dishes are coffee cake pumpkin muffins and veggie pot pie. I love working out, riding my bike, and interval running. I’m usually listening to a podcast (are you into podcasts?? so addicting) and watching RuPaul’s Drag Race. I’m a feminist with a sociology degree and unironic love of The Bachelor.
✨I value kindness most in people, and of course, I’m obsessed with nail polish!
✿ Are you married?
Nope! But I have been with my boyfriend Scott since 2010. He always says that he knew I was his wife on our very first date. He’s from Long Island, which has the second best drivers, bagels, and accents after New Jersey, so we really get each other on a deep level 😜🍕. Scott is a BMX rider, brand new Mountain Biker that already somehow had a documentary made about him, a 7-string guitarist working on his album, an INTJ, all around brilliant person… and he’s my best friend! He has taught me so much about unconditional love, ambition, and Orange Amplifiers 😄.
✿ What are your must have products?
All of my favorite products are listed on The Go-To, which is a helpful page for finding out what beauty and skincare I’m loving these days! 😊 It’s a handy resource, so be sure to check it out! I try to keep it cruelty free, and I don’t like to spend a ton.
