About Me

My name is Eileen and I’m the blogger behind Miss Whoever You Are.
Eileen Dautruche

“You know what’s wrong with you, Miss Whoever-You-Are? You’re chicken. You’re afraid to stick out your chin and say, ‘Okay, life’s a fact.’ People DO fall in love. People do belong to each other. Because that’s the only chance anybody’s got for real happiness.” – Breakfast at Tiffany’s

This quote stuck with me for some odd reason…combine that with the immense amount of free time I had that day I decided to start this dear old blog. The internet has the amazing ability to connect people with interests such as mine and I’ve discovered that mainly through blogging. It is amazing to interact with readers and fellow blog editors everyday with each new post.

    I love all things cheesy too, and would love to learn photography. I also suck at maths, so I studied biology.
    Came across your blog while searching for lipstick reviews, and I’ve fallen in love with your way of writing, and the simplicity with which you present your posts.
    Great work!

    People Stylewatch magazine also brought me here and I am glad I found your blog. You have a great personality and that list was very funny. I share most of the things on your list, including being Haitian. 😀

    I like that you started the “100 things about you.” It now has become an addiction where my staff want to write one of there own. I know many people who do #91 & 93 which is annoying. Stay true to your Blogging.

    Loved this – I’m a new reader, but it was great intro to a little (or a lot) of who you are. Don’t hate on me when I’m lovin’ NYC as a tourist in the near future.

    I love the work that you’re doing! My team and I are knee-deep in product development work with an eye on a July launch. Yes, exhale.

    At any rate, I wanted to take the time before I dive back into my process to congratulate you on you blog. Keep up the good work!

    My team will be in touch.

    I tried essential oils from Basilica Botanica and I love them! I’m an avid user but once I found these oils I have not swictched brands ever since. Do yourself a favor and try them. You can find them on Amazon and they qualify for amazon prime, whoo hoo!”

    Hi from a fellow December baby. I love being able to connect with other make-up lovers online. Unfortunately none of friends are as obsessed as I am. I’ve been crocheting since 4th grade. If we lived closer I would definitely teach you.

  20. Monday, September 4, 2017 / 8:34 am

    Loved learning all this about you! I’m mixed, too, and definitely subscribe more to one side than the other. 🙂 I actually just sent you an email. Hope it got to you!
