We were lucky enough to pay a visit to Xenia of the blog Doe Deere in her Brooklyn abode, and when you first set foot in her “Unicorn House,” you can tell she’s devoted to her amazing aesthetic. Cotton candy colors envelop the rooms in soothing washes of pale purple and pink, and a unicorn gallops up the staircase. I felt like I could break off a piece of the lavender hued banister and let it melt in my mouth like a Sweet Tart. Xenia and her husband were similarly decked out in yummy colors that were straight from a fairy princess land. For our photoshoot, she slipped on a vintage frock and struck a pose on her plush sofa surrounded by her collection of stuffed bunnies and kitties. Find out more about Xenia by reading her interview and perusing her picks. Plus, check out the first-ever Blogger of the Moment namesake heels!
When you’re not blogging, what are your other hobbies?
Experimenting with makeup and concocting new colors!
You have your own line of makeup, Lime Crime — any tips for girls wanting to start their own business?
Blind faith helps. Believe in what you do, don’t let anyone get in the way of your vision. Try a billion different things until you find one that sticks.
Which actress would you pick to play you in the movie of your life?
Based on looks, Kirsten Dunst — I’m always told we look alike, especially when she had red hair in the Spider-Man movies.
If you could have dinner with anyone, living or dead, who would it be and what would you eat?
Andy Warhol. Banana.
What would your dream date be like?
A day volunteering at a pet rescue. The best way to see how compassionate the person is!
What’s one crazy thing you’ve always wanted to do but never had the guts to?
Dye my hair an unnatural color! I can’t wait ’til I become an old lady, then my hair can finally be that perfect powder-blue I’ve always dreamed of…

Do you have any secret dreams for the future?
Not so secret. I’d like for Lime Crime Makeup to produce more cruelty-free and vegan makeup and eventually launch at Sephora, my favorite makeup store. Opening a no-kill animal charity is also on the list — I love to help furry critters.
