Hey there everyone!! Here you will find the answer to some of the most common questions I usually get from my readers. If you need any more info, feel free to contact me at thejoyoffashion@hotmail.com :)

1. Where were you born? Where do you live?
I was born, raised, and currently live in Panama City, Republic of Panama. We are best known for the Panama Canal and for paradise looking beaches. But my favorite part is the mountain areas of Chiriquí.

2. What do you do for a living?
I'm a purchasing manager at a local Construction and Equipment company. I'm happy to be working in the family business!

3. What camera do you use?
For the first 2 years and a half, I used the Panasonic DMC-FH20, which is a regular digital camera. I just recently purchased a Sony Alpha 350, which is a semi-professional camera. I'm still learning how to use it though!

4. Who takes your pictures?
For the first year or so, my boyfriend was kind enough to take all of my pictures (Thanks Alejo!). Since then, I've been using a tripod and timer. Now that I have a semi-professional camera, I'm using a tripod with a wireless remote (instead of a timer).

    How much thought and time do you put into each one of your attires, from conceptualizing and shopping for it? How often do you shop for new looks?

  2. Hi Dipika!!! I am SO sorry I didn't see this comment until now, I'm so so soooorry! This is one of the sweetest comments EVER and I appreciate each and every kind word you said. It means a lot to me to hear you like my style :)

    Last year I used to shop online a LOT and bought new clothes every 2-3 weeks. Then I realized I had too much clothes and stopped buying all together for about 6 months or so. In the last month and a half I decided it was time to start shopping again, so I've been shopping every two or three weeks.

    I usually put my outfits together in advance since I usually don't have time in the morning. My outfits start with one piece that I would like to wear, and then I try to think what other pieces in my closet would look good with it. It takes me about 15 minutes to put an outfit together.
