We were asked by two lovely ladies, so we mixed their questions!

1. When did you start your blog and why? We started our blog in November 2014. We always would talk about our favorite products and recipes to each other. Then one day, Liv texted Em and said "Hey. Want to start a blog?" And that was that.

2. One product you can't live without? 
    • Em: Mine would definitely be my Maybelline Great Lash Mascara. Iv'e purchased about 5 tubes of it already and will keep going back to it!
    • Liv: My favorite product is the Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder. Iv'e been using for about 4 years and wear it every single day. 
3. Would you rather a book or watch a movie and why? Both of us would prefer to read a book instead of a movie! We've always been book worms, so it's just the natural choice to pick a book!

4. What are three things you've learned in 2014?
    • Em: I learned to be more confident in myself, more social, and take risks!
    • Liv: In 2014, I learned to not let stuff get to me, worry less, and be a light to others for Jesus!
5. What's your favorite store to shop at?
    • Em: Old Navy! They always have cute, trendy, and affordable clothes!
    • Liv: Gap! Seriously, everything I wear is Gap. I'm wearing all Gap right now as we type this post...It's the best!
6. Who inspires you the most?
    • Em: Probably my friends! They always encourage me to try new things, but not in a bad way! :)
    • Liv: My mom! She is my best friend, I tell her everything. She inspires me daily to be the very best that I can be, and to never give up on what you believe in.
7. Top five places you want to visit? 
    • Em: NYC, California, Europe, Montana (have you SEEN the pins on Pinterest?), and Hawaii.
    • Liv: Italy, Spain, California, NYC, and Utah (have you SEEN the pins on Pinterest?
8. Three favorite TV shows?
    • Em: Currently, I've been loving Pretty Little Liars, Gilmore Girls, and Bones.
    • Liv: Right now, I love Gilmore Girls, Hart of Dixie, and NCIS New Orleans.
9. How do you relax yourself after a stressful day?
    • Em: I like to read a romantic mystery novel and write all my thoughts down.
    • Liv: I like to take a bubble bath and read a cheesy romance book!
10. What's your favorite candy and/or chocolate?
    • Em: my favorite candy is sour gummy worms, and my favorite chocolate is Lindor Truffles! Yum!
    • Liv: My favorite candy is "Sowa Powa Strips" and my favorite chocolate is Reese's!
11. What are a few of your guilty pleasures?
    • Em: In my spare time, I enjoy dancing around the house with the music blaring, like I just don't care!
    • Liv: I prefer to sing loudly in the shower, and staying in my PJ's all day!
*In case you can't tell over the Internet, #11 is where the sarcasm kicks in.
