♡ 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! I never thought I’d end up in Texas, but now I don’t ever want to leave.
✿ 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 editing my first two books, both YA fiction novels set in Hawaii, in order to get them published in the mainstream market.
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 love to cook and bake, and some of my best dishes are pumpkin muffins and veggie pot pie. I love taking walks, riding my bike, and interval running. I’m usually listening to a podcast, and as far as music, I’m a big fan of Deftones, disco, RuPaul, Led Zeppelin, and Blink 182. I love reading, writing, and makeup best of all, of course!
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? 🎃).
On a serious note- I am an advocate for EMDR therapy and overcoming trauma- this is one of my greatest passions (shoot me an email if you have questions about that- email@example.com)
✨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. We consider ourselves married, and that’s good enough for me (for now). He’s from Long Island, which has the second best drivers and accents after New Jersey, so we really get each other on a deep level 😜🍕. Scott is a BMX rider, a 7-string guitarist working on his album, an INTJ, all around brilliant person… and he’s my best friend!
✿ 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.
