♡ Hi! Welcome to my blog! ♡
I’m Taylor. I’m the 27-year-old writer and creator of TaylorDorothy.com, my homepage 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!
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 was born and raised in northern New Jersey (right outside of the city, and close to Tony Soprano’s fictional home), and lived in Hawaii during high school and my freshman year of college. Now I live in Austin, Texas, which I just LOVE! I’ve been here 8 years, and it’s officially my home.
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. And I make a pretty good blogger and “housewife,” while working from home!
What are some of your favorite things?
I love reading and want to read 75 books in 2017! I love to cook and bake, and my best dishes are pumpkin muffins and veggie pot pie. I love hiking, taking walks, riding my bike, and strength training. I’m usually listening to a podcast, and as far as music, I’m a big fan of Deftones, RuPaul, Led Zeppelin, and Blink 182.
I’m a Hufflepuff (my Harry Potter obsession will never die down) who loves breakfast tacos, sunny days, Sprinkles Cupcakes, and chilling at home. I am a classic girly girl and prefer to be in a dress or skirt, with a sweet cocktail or coffee drink in hand (iced caramel macchiatos with extra caramel are my fave). Pumpkin Season is my favorite time of year (you know… like when stores get pumpkin flavored everything? aka fall? 🎃). 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 worse pizza than New Jersey but better bagels, so we really get each other on a deep level 😜🍕. No, but really, Scott is a BMX rider, 7-string guitarist, INTJ, and brilliant guy, and I love him tons.
What should I read first on your blog?
- This post about my current favorite nail polishes!
- These fun recaps of my trip to Montreal- some of my favorite posts ever!
- This one to get a better picture of my life as a teen in Hawaii.
- And this post to see the BMX wife side of my life 🙂
