Justine Bateman may be forty-seven, but she doesn’t let that stop her from continuing a higher education at the University of California Los Angeles. We caught up with her, chatting about her sophomore year, new blog, and surprisingly strong opinion on Apple TV.
Restorsea: What are your current 5 must-have items rights now?
2. Maybelline Cool Effects eye pencil (hard as hell to find anymore except online)
3. My running shoes
5. Breaking Bad episodes. The best-directed TV on the air right now.
R: What is the craziest beauty remedy, product or service that you have tried?
J: Honey Body Treatment. It was fantastic.
R: What was the inspiration for your website?
J: A couple of my husband's work associates asked me why the hell I didn't have a blog about my college experience. I started GetACollegeLife just as a place to keep a personal diary of the process. I'm surprised at the big response to it. I'd thought the blog would be way too boring for anyone to pay much attention to.
R: What is your favorite local spot?
J: Doger Stadium
R: Who are your personal style and/or beauty icons?
J: Flat-chested 70's models and Carine Roitfeld.
R: What would you be doing if you weren’t creating content for your site?
J: You mean, if I weren't going to UCLA? Running Apple TV and turning it into something entirely different.
R: What are your favorite magazines or other online publications?
J: Circa (news app). I used to love, love fashion magazines, but I think they blew it when they caved into society's morbid obsession with "celebrities" and started replacing models with actresses in the photo spreads.
R: What are you most looking forward to over the next couple of months?
J: My sophomore year starting at UCLA.
R: What would your readers be surprised to find out about you?
J: I can turn my tongue upside down.
