My answer's to Ally's Questions

1. How did you get into blogging? I have loved reading blogs for a little over a year now and had been thinking about starting my own. But then I thought what would I write about and who would read it? After starting my jewelry company, Poppy Style, I thought it would help my business to have a blog.  And it has! It has also been really fun!
2. If you had to eat one food everyday, for the rest of your life, would would that food be? Definitely Kraft Mac'n'Cheese --spirals! 

3. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Hopefully my business will continue to grow and take off! I hope my hubby and I have at least one little one and are just still living a happy life in Charlotte!
4. If you could re-do it, would you have studied something else in college? If you didn’t attend, what would you study if someone gave you free tuition? I always joke about this with my friends and family that I should have majored in criminology.  I majored in Corporate Communications and loved it. It taught me sooo much! But I have an odd fascination with crimes/criminology! I almost had enough credit for a minor and should have just done it. 

Elon University
5. Do you speak any other languages? Nope! I have taken French, Spanish and Italian though. 
6. Do you have any tattoos? Yup! I got one 3 weeks into my freshman year of college. It is a tiny pink heart that no one can see! 
7. What quality do you find most attractive in others? Kindness 
8. Would you ever consider plastic surgery? I used to say no, but actually I think I would. I worked for a cosmetic dermatologist so I know there is also a lot you can do without surgery.  There is nothing I would do now, but who knows after kids?! I definitely wouldn't do anything to my face or make myself look drastically different. 
9. Do you love or loathe exercise? LOATHE. LOATHE. 
10. If you could furnish your entire house, for free, from one catalog/store/website, which would it be?  This is a tough one! I don't know if I could pick just one...I love Restoration Hardware and Ballard Design. But I also love cute little antique or vintage shops. We have some great ones in Charlotte. 
11. What is one skill or hobby you’ve always wanted to learn? I am doing it! I always wanted to make jewelry and I'm doing it.  I started learning last fall and still have so much to learn. I go to this cute bead shop in Charlotte, NC and the girls there help me with everything. I absolutely love it! But if I had to pick something else, I would pick sewing! I would love to make my own pillow covers.
