73 Questions

12:36:00 PM

Hello everyone! Today I wanted to do a more of a laid back and chill post, where I just sit back and answer a few questions. I've seen this tag floating around the internet and on Vogue's youtube channel,so I decided to do it myself as the questions are very fun and a bit different than the usual! If you haven't watched Vogue's 73 questions series, you need to (especially the one with Taylor Swift). So, let's get answerin' !

1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?
- No, I wasn't, but there's a funny story how my parents came up with my name. When my mom was pregnant with me, she loved going on long walks by the beach and one day when she was heavily pregnant, my parents were walking on the marina and my mom got contractions and had to go into labor! So, that's where the name Marina came from haha :)
