Erica, we LOOOOVE your Instagram alter-ego account Fashionkush. Tell us more.
I have been in the fashion industry for over 10 years and started blogging, as a career, 8 years ago, after graduating from UC Long Beach. After starting Blog-Doo, a successful blog development company, me and my partner, Lauryn Evarts of The Skinny Confidential, wrote an E-Book which discusses the art of blogging and branding. Fashionlush is my lifestyle brand and blog, Fashionkush is my newest venture, and a brand created to help further shatter the stoner stigma.
I used to keep my favorable opinions about cannabis to myself. As the world progressed, and the laws have changed, it was time to come out of the “cannabis closet.”
The idea for actually came to my Mom, who is the co-creator and fellow pot-smoker, and me. I guess you could say we were naturally getting high together! We decided that it was time to make cannabis chic, to create an accepting, exciting, and fashionable culture centered around weed.

How did cannabis change your life?
For so many people, cannabis is so much more than just getting high. For some, the medicinal effects are essential for their comfort and state of mind. For me, it is an integral part in caring for my mental health & issues with anxiety. As a result, I combined weed with my fashion-focused lifestyle…. a perfect mix.
