Killer Queen- February

In 2020 we are celebrating the power of girls! Getting to know some of our favourite queens and bringing them to you so we can get to know them together. 

This month our Killer Queen is our ultimate style, travel and hair inspo Monique Palombo aka: @Fashionbymnp

We asked her some quick fire questions that we were dying to know- read on to get to know her a little better.

  1. Who is your fashion icon(s)? 

    I would say Rosie Huntington, Kourtney Kardashian, Olivia Culpo and Sofia Richie - I love their style!

  2. Where are you from?

    I’m from Glasgow! 

  3. If you could only wear one brand for the rest of your life what brand would it be?

    Definitely Zara

  4. Currently, what is your favourite skincare products?

    I have really dry skin so I always use E45 as a moisturiser day and night. I use a Clinique cleanser and toner. And I love Dove tinted moisturiser on my body for an extra glow! I have been using that since I was at school. 

  5. How would you describe your fashion sense?

    I would say my fashion sense during the day is quite simple and basic. Really glam if I’m going out at night! 

  6. What is your go-to hairstyle?

    Either curled with a middle parting or a high sleek ultra tight ponytail! I love wearing my hair up it feels so much better.

  7. What is your morning/ night-time routine?

    I’m so not a morning person - If I need to be up early I try sleep for as long as possible and get ready as quickly as possible! Night-time is completely different - during the week I have a bath every night, watch some Netflix and go to bed before 10pm. I also wear ear plugs and an eye mask to bed every night to ensure I don’t get a disturbed sleep - I can’t function without sleep.

  8. What’s one surprising fact about you?

    I can’t sleep without socks on 🙂

  9. Describe yourself in 3 words.

    Happy, quiet and honest

  10. Ultimate celebrity crush?

    Justin Bieber always.

  11. What is your biggest accomplishment?

    Probably finishing my dissertation, I never thought I would be able to!

  12. Cats or dogs?

    Dogs. I love dogs. They are better than people.

  13. What are you currently watching on Netflix/ favourite Netflix show?

    I am currently watching You - it is so creepy but so addictive! I also like Power

  14. Who are you favourite youtubers and bloggers?

    I really love the bloggers; @majamalnar, @viktoriahuttet and @majamarko7 - I get so much style inspo from them! My favourite Youtubers are Nate & Karissa - they play such funny couple pranks on each other I think it’s hilarious. I also really love Miss Molly on Youtube!

  15. What is your idea of a dream holiday?

    My idea of a dream holiday is a gorgeous beach, amazing weather and places to party - I love getting glammed up on holiday!

  16. What is your go-to McDonalds/Nando’s order?

    Nandos - medium chicken burger with a slice of pineapple, perri perri chips, halloumi and a fanta. The froyo is fab too. 

  17. What is your go to drink on a night out?

    Either a gin + tonic or champagne! I love French martinis too. Or an aperol spritz in the sun!

  18. What are your pet peeves?

    Rude people.

  19. What is a common misconception that people have about you?

    I think people can sometimes think I am unfriendly, but I’m actually just quite quiet.

  20. What is no. 1 on your bucket list?

    Buy a house this year!

  21. What advice would you give to your younger self?

    Stop overthinking, stop worrying, just do and say what you want to - everyone else does! 

  22. Do you have any secret beauty/haircare/skincare tips?

    Nuxe oil - I put this in my hair, on my body and face - it’s such a good multi purpose oil, it keeps everything soft, smooth and smells amazing. 

  23. What’s the best job you’ve ever had?

    The best job I have had is probably the one I am currently in! I do social media and marketing for an outdoor clothing brand. It is my first job since leaving university so it feels that bit extra special. 

  24. What is your favourite thing about social media?

    I love getting endless fashion inspo. I also LOVE home accounts, I have a full saved folder full of home instagram images for inspiration when I get my first home. I also really like seeing where people go when they are on holiday / out for dinner etc as it gives you places to go when you are visiting a place! It’s also nice to meet other bloggers that you have stuff in common with! 

Lastly, what is the charity that you will be donating to/ doing a giving back day with? Why this charity?

I am going to be donating lots of clothes and belongings to the charity ‘Glasgow women’s aid’ - It is a shelter for women and children who have become homeless or had to leave their homes due to abuse - many of them have little to no belongings. I feel so lucky to receive a lot of clothes from brands, some that I often only wear once or a few times. I would like to give back to these woman as they deserve and need clothing a lot more than I do.
