What inspired you to start a blog?
Julie Davis: I really enjoy trying new things and experiences, and blogging was an outlet to share my findings with others. I want to be a voice for amazing brands/people/companies who might not have avenues to do so. I started blogging about business and networking topics, and it slowly started to grow from there. It has been a fabulous journey so far and I cannot wait to see where it will go.
Kathryn Marks: I want people to hear my voice. I want to inspire others and continue to learn.
Do you blog full-time or have a job as well?
JD: I’m not the kind of person who just does one thing. I have a full-time job as a Senior Sales Director at an event management software company and I also sit on boards and volunteer for other organizations I am interested in.
KM: I have a full-time job as a commercial lender in Philadelphia and I enjoy keeping busy with activities that interest me.
What are three words that best describe you?
JD: Committed, resilient and personable
KM: Relentless, motivated and inspirational
How tall are you?
JD: 5’11 without heels
Who does your hair?
JD: My hair is only trusted by the fabulous Justin Littlefield from Salon Thalia in Philadelphia. I can walk into the salon and he knows exactly what I need. He is a hair genius!
KM: Mitch at Blush Salon in Fishtown. Mitch was doing my hair almost weekly at a blow dry bar in Philadelphia and I really liked her style and personality, so I followed her to Blush.
What is the one (or two) beauty product you cannot live without?
JD: This is a tough question. It’s hard to choose as different products help with different things; however, I would have to say my BECCA Under Eye Brightening Corrector and my NARS Sheer Glow Foundation. Here is my blog on my daily make-up.
KM: I would say Sephora Face Masks and Rodial Eye Gel.
What hair products do you use?
JD: I recently just changed to Seed Phytonutrients and you can read about my blog post here. I LOVE this blowdry lotion as well.
KM: I use Ecru and Moroccan Oil. Salons introduced both to me and the hairspray is my favorite because it’s flexible and doesn’t cause build up.

JD: The Devil Wears Prada
KM: My Fair Lady, West Side Story (Musicals), Wedding Crashers, Bad Moms (comedy), The Notebook

What is your favorite drink (coffee and alcohol)?
JD: Depending on the day – I love me a good Manhattan, Red Wine, Grey Goose and soda. For coffee I love an iced coffee with a splash of steamed almond milk (summer) in colder weather I’ll drink it hot!
KM: Italian (very dry) red wine and almond milk cappuccino (Saxbys)
Where is one place you want to travel to this year?
JD: I absolutely love to travel and explore new places (especially history). Currently, Scotland is on my list as some of my ancestors are from there and I would love to learn more.
KM: Hawaii is on the top of my list. I have always wanted to go; however, I am dreading the long flight. I have family there, so it’s a must sometime soon.
What is your go-to outfit for work, causal, going out?
JD: My number one go-to would be any kind of dress. Some of my dresses are from Ann Taylor. They are fabulous for either day or night and you can easily dress them down or up with the right accessories. I also love high heels for almost all my outfits and my Cole Haan’s for causal wear.
KM: For work I love red pumps and a black pencil skirt or skinny pants and a black or white blouse. If I’m going for a casual look you will find me in Nike leggings, Nike sneakers, a Nike hoodie and a T-shirt. If I’m going out its always skinny jeans and any pumps or low booties with a sweater or a leather jacket.
What are your fashion pet peeves?
JD: I have so many pet peeves…people need to at least try and attempt to look presentable. If you look like you just rolled out of bed to go to work, it’s not a good look. I also hate when men wear a tux and their belly is hanging out (get a longer vest).
KM: All jean outfit 100% and spandex
