I am such a fan of Nami M. Scott! I think you guys know that by now. She’s an engaging blogger, an amazing artist, a social media maven, a style icon and a good friend to boot.
So when she wanted to do another LAdies interview with me here at my home, which friends call The Cupcake Palace, I was thrilled!
Nami brought her video set-up, her interview hat (figuratively speaking), her style and her set of thought-provoking questions.
Our good friend Kristin came along with her film know-how, head-shaking and advice.
And I made Gratitude cocktails and picked up some pastel cupcakes from Magnolia Bakery since I didn’t have time to bake.
We all settled into my living room and ended up having a laughter-filled, delirious, delicious afternoon!
Thanks so much, Nami, for such a fun & memorable afternoon! Now, here’s Nami’s post from www.NamiMScott.com

LA LADIES: INTERVIEW #1 (REVISITED) – DAWN MCCOY (BEAUTY BLOGGER & MORE!)
What would you get if you combined Dolly Parton, Cinderella, Catherine Zeta Jones, a pound and a half of glitter, some ribbons, 3 ground pistachios nuts, 2 cups of sprinkles, a tube of red lipstick, and a large dollop of pink frosting?
Dawn McCoy of BeautyFrosting. Duh. Everyone knows that. (Well, everyone that knows Dawn knows that.)
So, remember back in the beginning of October when I interviewed Dawn? (No? You can check it out here – warning: it’s a transcribed interview, so if you don’t feel like reading a ton, hold on for a minute.)
Well, I just didn’t feel like Dawn’s sunny personality was conveyed correctly through the written word (though we did our damnedest and got pretty close), so I figured “why not do a video interview with her to make up for it?”
Well, ya know what? When I “figure” things…then I do them. (Insert a superhero pose here.)
And with that, I was able to pluck my dear friend Dawn from her ridiculously busy schedule to ask her some questions…and not only did I get to pick her brain, but I also got to do it at “The Cupcake Palace”…also known as Dawn’s apartment. (Imagine if you lived in a colorful pastry large enough to house a white baby grand and a truckload of vintage dishes…Have that image in your head? Ok. You’re ready for The Cupcake Palace.)
You know what else is exciting? It’s Dawn’s birthday today! (Insert me singing the birthday song very quickly because I always think it’s kind of awkward to sing it alone.) Timely post, eh? So, without further ado…To Dawn, may you have a wonderful, magical, fantastical birthday! Thank you so much for taking time out to sit with me, to share your pearls of wisdom, and also feed me cupcakes. (She also made “Gratitude Cocktails”…this woman knows how to take care of her guests!) Love you tons!
Now, sit back, relax and enjoy!
