Loveyouduh… that’s all I knew of Kris Sugatan before this very post. Her unique username stood out on the pages of FP Me style pics, which matched up just perfectly to her pictures. I’m not exactly sure of the correct definition, but for me, it means exactly what I think every time I see one of her images…’Lovethisyes.’
In the depths of the woods or on the dock of a lake, Kris finds the spots that make her feel at home. She refers to Mother Nature as her “bffl”, which you’ll soon know as you read more about this girl, who I must say has quite a unique and alluring way of the written word. It’s captivating, much like herself and her blog, LoveYouDuh. There’s lots of style blogs out there, but every now and then, I’ll stumble upon one that instantly has me clicking “bookmark”. They’re the ones that are simplistic in design, aspirational, and display images that give me the urge to go out and capture a scene of my own. LoveYouDuh embodies all of the above, and Kris is the mastermind and face behind it. Everyone, meet Kris Sugatan.
Where do you currently live? What’s your favorite part about your surroundings?
I’m in Ithaca, NY. It’s a mix of college town, hippie town, and small town. All built on the most beauteous landscape, so basically, it’s a weird space & I love it.
What have you learned about yourself since starting a blog?
That ‘giving style’ to one’s character is a great & rare art. It is exercised by those who see all the strengths & weaknesses of their own natures and then comprehend them in an artistic plan until everything appears as art and reason, and even weakness delights the eye. P.S. that is Nietzsche.
Where are some of your favorite places to shoot?
In front of this rad chick, Mother Nature. She is wild & we clicked from the beginning.

What are three blogs that you religiously read?
& Free People’s video blog on YouTube (I lauuuuhhvee it so much!)
They satisfy the different aspects of the intellectual me’s.
When not blogging, what else could we find you doing?
Werk ‘slaves me 55 hours/week but when not that, either I hoard words, noise, stories, philosophies, experiences, people, expressions, and coffee.
When it comes to dressing, are there any rules you follow? How would you describe your personal style?
No rules. Just always experimenting. Always expressing. & always @ play.
What are three things you can’t live without?
This freedom to create in such an open space (the interwebs), my bffl Mother Nature, & my gangly & nimble limbs. My monkey arms & giraffe legs have proven useful when climbing things I shouldn’t be climbing & jumping off things I shouldn’t be jumping off of.
Music… any songs that you can’t seem to stop listening to at the moment?
Clams Casino “Angel” & Gypsy Death Star “Throwing Hail Marys”. The latter has been on epidemic repeat for the last, like, 2.5 years & I picked it up from a Free People video. The texture of it all! I swear I came away a different girl because of song and video. The best double whammy.
What’s one thing you are willing to share with us that a stranger walking down the street wouldn’t be able tell about you?
That I am just like you. Broken in the best way.
What does being ‘free’ mean to you?
2 things. 1. Youreadingthis&somehowlikingit. 2. To love, love, love.
