I thought I would include a few common questions about myself below to help you get to know me more! Enjoy!
Where are you from?
I am from the St. Augustine, Florida area, but have lived in San Diego, CA and Tallahassee, FL where I went to San Diego State University to play Division 1 Lacrosse and finished up at Florida State University where I joined Alpha Delta Pi (Go Noles!!) I am currently living in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL with my husband, Justin and our puppy, Roscoe. Fortunately, my family lives here as well! We are a tight-knit, super goofy, really fun family! (I’m so biased) Having my brother live in Charlotte, NC right now for college is really hard, but we all get to go on fun trips up there to watch him play lacrosse! I lovee the Charlotte area, I would probably move there if I didn’t love the beach so much, but having an excuse to go up there often is just as nice!
What camera do you use and who takes your pictures?
We have a Nikon D5100 and a D3200; both cameras are very similar, but we tend to use the 5100 for most of my shoots. As for my photographer- my husband takes them! I’m actually very thankful for his knowledge of photography, he is gradually teaching me all of the ins and outs of handling a DSLR camera and getting the perfect shot!
What do you do in your free time?
When I am not at work (I work in Public Relations at the School Board in my area) I am a competitive cheerleading coach at Ponte Vedra High School! I love coaching and mentoring high school girls and it’s fun being on the other side as a coach since I myself was a competitive cheerleader growing up. I love doing DIY projects around the house- the ones that seem to consume our entire weekend of course. We love going to the beach, we are very active and love working out or going on long bike rides or walks with our pup; really anything outside and we’re there! I also love hosting parties and get-togethers for our friends and family at our new house!
Why did you start Hello Alley?
I decided to start Hello Alley because I needed a creative outlet where I could document my all around love for fashion, beauty, DIY projects and life in general and my Instagram was just not cutting it anymore! I want to give readers a chance to look at my blog and take from it inspiration- whether it is an outfit, how I use a beauty product, house décor or just motivation to buy that purse you’ve had your eye on and I found it on sale! Dressing up and creating outfit ideas for you brings me so much happiness and fun in my life and I wanted to use Hello Alley to help others feel that too!
