On Being a Lady

I've always tried my best to be a lady, but sometimes with my beer drinkin', Idaho back roadin' self just doesn't quite live up to the standard all the time.

So I was extremely excited to team up with Brittany this month as she is the lady behind The Lady Lawyer! 

"Finding my balance between work and play while always being a lady"

I love her tagline. I mean that is what life is about right? Having just enough work to balance your fun? Brittany is a girl after my own heart with her own Wanderlust, frugal but amazing style (sharing SALES), and her helpful tips like how to write a thank you note.

Let's get to know her a little better shall we?

1. Tell us a little about yourself?
Insert standard (basic) description of mid-twenty something girl who loves shopping, can't survive without morning coffee, lives for day drinking with my girlfriends, brunches, and a helicopter dog mom. 

2. Why did you start blogging and what is your blog about?
I started blogging mostly because of my love for reading other blogs. I love seeing a peek into someone else's little life. I had tossed around the thought of starting a blog for many years but felt like I was too busy with studying in law school. After a year into my big girl job I decided to go for it and so glad I did.

My blog is a reflection of things that interest me such as fashion, bargain hunting, tips, travel, and pretty much anything else that strikes my fancy. 

3. What are three things you couldn't live without and why?
  1. wifi--how did we ever live without it? I'm not sure but I don't want to ever find out. 
  2. dental floss--this is weird and perhaps gross but I floss my teeth numerous times a day and ALWAYS have floss on hand and freak out when I'm without it. 
  3.  my bathtub- NOTHING feels better after a long day than a relaxing bubbling bath. It's such a simple luxury that can really turn my day around.

4. What was the best trip you've ever been on OR what is your dream vacation?
Several years ago I went on a 14 day Mediterranean cruise that went through several European countries. It was my first time out of the US and it really opened my eyes to the world and gave me a lifelong case of wanderlust.

5. If you and I went out for drinks, what's your go-to order?
I know we both like beer :) so if we were out day-drinking I would opt for a local craft beer on tap. If we were out at night I usually opt for what I call the skinny b*tch which is vodka, soda water, and lime.

6. What can we look forward to seeing on The Lady Lawyer in the next few months?
Summer is my favorite time of year so be on the lookout for some cool travel, yummy food and drink recipes, and some fun giveaways ;) 

7. What is your favorite social media and why?
For my personal life I love instagram but blogging has really opened me up to Twitter and I've become a little bit obsessed with that little birdie. 

You had me at craft beers and skinny b*tches my friend!!!
