This week we are crushing on Priscilla Ford!
Actress, model, fashion blogger; Priscilla is the quintessential woman about town.
Just like her career(s), Priscilla’s beginnings were unconventional. She was born in Honolulu Hawaii, but grew up living an extreme version of the bi-coastal life. Her family, working in the gem and jewelry industry, divided their time, and Priscilla’s childhood, between Redondo Beach, California and Dania Beach, Florida.
Her family business helped fuel Pricilla’s curiosity and creativity, exposing her to different cultures and styles through their travels, their clients and collaborators and their work. As a result, Priscilla grew up with a sense of safety, security and faith in the world around her that gave her the confidence to break out on her own creative journey. That journey is evident through her blog, www.priscillaford.com.
In her blog Priscilla features artists, curators and tastemakers from around the globe. Through her modeling, she focuses on working with independent designers, and supporting the industry she loves so dearly.
We caught up with the L.A. based lady to chat about love and romance and more! Read on about Priscilla’s thoughts below:
What is the first thing that you notice about a potential love interest?
I notice his eyes, hair, and if he looks like he wants life to be an adventure. If he seems like he is stable, cognizant and easy going then I’m paying attention. I’m not attracted to boys who seem lost.
What is your definition of romance?
Gosh, romance is just one of those words that I get so shy about! Its like when you’re a kid and you think everyone has cooties. For me, its the feeling you get when you run into that person and you just think “hey there you are, let’s go”. Adventure is a must have for me in any relationship.
What is your ideal first date?
My ideal first date would be somewhere breezy and warm, as well as exciting where we can be carefree and run wild. There also must be somewhere to purchase a sentimental item to commemorate the evening, even if it’s a shell or a keychain something that says, “We did that, that one time”.
What’s your instant deal breaker?
The work to party ratio needs to be in check. I avoid people who avoid responsibility.
If there was one piece of advice you could give to other women out there, what would it be?
Stay safe. Know the difference between something that is healthy and something that is dark. Relationships are supposed to be a lot of things, but don’t give yourself a heart attack over them.
