My favorite movie is Rush Hour. And Clueless.

Why The Unabridged Sass?
I honestly don’t remember. The first blog post I ever wrote was at 2 am after I applied for the internship of my dreams (at that time), and I remember thinking of the name (somehow) and then hurrying to type up my first post! Everyone says it suits me, though!
What advice do you have for those who want to start blogging?
Be yourself. Be fearless. It’s so easy to be afraid to hit that publish button or to let drafts pile up due to fear. Just be a little brave and go for it! I also wrote a post on my best blogging advice.
If you didn’t blog about fashion/beauty/life, what would you blog about?
This is a hard one! I think that I would write a blog about current scientific/medical/health news translated to millennial speak with lots of humor and graphics! The Sassy Scientist! Or The Chrissey Theory.
Which two brands are your dream brands to collaborate with?
I’ll pick one beauty brand and one fashion brand. KOSAS Cosmetics and LOFT.
What blogs do you read?
Refinery29, Minimalist Baker, Man Repeller, GOOP, and a lot more!
