Introducing Tish of Chic MeMe

I have always admired DIYers for their ingenuity, creativity and patience. I tell myself one day I will complete more DIY projects, I haven't done so yet. Thus, when I saw that Tish was a DIYer I ran over to her blog for inspiration. Not only will you find projects Tish have completed with detailed instructions, you will also find posts related to fashion and beauty. Like me she loves vintage, and her vintage pinterest board is simply drool-worthy. She's even inspired me to create one.  It's my pleasure to introduce Tish and her lovely blog Chic MeMe.

So tell us more about yourself, who is Tish?

Well Tish or "ChicT", is a New York City native who no matter what, is constantly drawn back to fashion although she has a career in Food and Beverage. I just have this creative side, almost like a dual personality ...(I know cliche right?) I gets these random, spunky ideas to create, make and express, and that usually leads to a night of DIYing. Its weird because my true style isn't at all anything reflective of what I wear to work.  

How did you get your start in blogging? What can we expect to find on your blog? 

I started in blogging almost two years ago after the birth of my daughter, who is now two. I had the time so why not? After abandoning my blog, chicmeme two years ago, for real life, I recently decided to resurrect and relaunch the beginning of February. I began blogging again because I have loads of DIY's that I've created so I figured why not share it with the world!  

What are three of your favorite items in your closet?

My first love is not actual an item from my closet but it is my MAC Fuchsia lip pencil, wear it almost everyday.
During the cold winter, I really can't do without my Mongolian fur boots, that I actually hated at first.
I would go insane if something happened to my bangle/bracelet collection, that took over 10 years to build. 

Who are your style icons, where do you get your inspiration?

I honestly get inspiration from anything, be it a Foreign Film that I watching, the interior design of a restaurant or a Stylish person that passes me on the street. I really admire and love Kerry Washington, of course Solange Knowles, Tracy Ellis Ross and I have recently gained a new sense of style admiration for Vh1's Love and Hip Hop Chrissy Lampkin

What trends/looks are you looking forward to wearing this Spring?

 1940's style, I'm am so happy the Marilyn Monroe-isque style is back, Scuba inspired neons, lace lace lace and Mexican/Navaho print, textures and fabrics and I am loving the color combos of mint and nude.

Anything else?
