Hey Yan! I'm looking to move to Sydney from Melbourne and was wondering where your favourite places are to live or where the good areas are?
I've always grown up near the beach in the Eastern suburbs, so that's what I'm use to. If you're more of a city gal; Paddington, Woollahra, Surry Hills, Redfern, Chippendale are nice areas. But it really depends on your budget and what you would prefer.
Hey Yan! What was your encounter with Kanye West like? I've heard some stories, but it seemed like he was really nice with you guys!

how do you get so much volume in your hair?
After I dyed it blonde.. it kinda fucked my hair a little - in a good way?? It's usually super silky and soft, but now it's a little dried it's gotten more textural. Mr and Mrs Smith salt spray is one of my favourites, I don't use it all the time, but when I do - HELLO VOLUME.

Hey! Just wondering what filters/apps etc. did you use for most of your Instagram photos when you were travelling through Italy, particularly the ones with the cool borders? x

Did you actually liked New York? I mean you're such a free spirit and seems like Nyc would constrain you so much... It's a city that just have so many problems and a few time when I lived there I just feel so suffocated and you meet so many rude people
NYC made me feel free. That's why I lived there for as long as I could during my school break... the 6 months I had there taught me so much.
