Hello fellow Bloggers!! My name is Sarah Quinn and I attend Franklin Regional High School. I am 17 years old. I am currently a senior and plan on attending either the University of Louisville or Pitt. There’s not too much about my life. If I’m not at Cheerleading, I’m with my girlies. I like to shop a lot and I also have a slight obsession with cats, pickles, and the movie Pitch Perfect. When I go shopping I like to know what’s in and what’s out, so that’s what I chose to write about. Not only just dealing with shopping though.. Anything in general that people should know about fashion. I’m here to help y’all out.
Miss Quinn, also keeps very active on social media. She often posts pictures of outings with friends on Instagram and of course with her cheering gals.
