Part of the nomination is to answer questions decided by the blogger who nominated you. Lets see what Tina asked...

1. What’s your favorite blog post that you have done?

Well probably my " Including Blush Pink in your Home?" post, all shades of pink are my favorite and searching how to use them in your home was thoroughly enjoyable.

2. How did you get started on this adventure we call blogging?

When I was around 15 I had a blog, which was more of what you would call a "lifestyle" blog. For my current adventure... I was a sophomore in college(studying Interior Design) and just want to create awareness of the life of an Interior Design Student. Currently, my blog coexist with my business Lauren Ashley Design.

3. If you could pick a superpower what would it be and why?

Being able to read peoples mind would be helpful. Reading peoples minds would not only be helpful in life but also in business. Sometimes clients are scared to tell you what they want.

4. What’s your favorite color and how do you use it in your home?

As I stated earlier, pink is my favorite color. However, I currently do not use it in my home... sadly. I hope one day to take the advice of my own blog and do so.

5. What’s the most crazy thing you have ever done?

I don't think I've done anything crazy haha.

6. What character do you relate to the most? (any book, movie, tv show)

My whole life people have said that I laugh like Goofy.... so yeah.

7. Dogs or Cats?

Cats! I have the sweetest little fur-baby named Scrappy.

8. What’s your favorite way to unwind?

I love to be on the beach, with a good book, and listening to music.

9. What would you do with a million dollars?

I honestly, would pay back my student loans first and then buy my dream home, back in North Carolina where I am from.

10. Cooking or takeout?

Right now, in my life cooking is cheapest for me and my husband.

11. What is your idea of the perfect day?

Waking up late with my husband, chilling on the couch watching Game of Thrones, and going out to our favorite place to eat.... which means anything Mexican.
