Where do you live?
John's school is in Virginia, but we move almost monthly to different cities/states for his audition rotations. I am from Arkansas and he is from Ohio.
When/Why did you start blogging?
I actually started The Sweetest Thing in January of 2012 as a way to document what we were up to in Virginia and share with my family, wedding planning updates, travels, John's schooling, etc. I only updated it once, sometimes, twice a week. In the spring of 2013, after receiving many questions about hair, makeup, clothing etc., it evolved into more of a beauty/style blog as I answered questions & filmed tutorials. I am from a very small town with no malls or great shopping nearby (and just 2 restaurants!) so I was not ever exposed to many learning opportunities that related to fashion or beauty. That being said, never in a million years did I dream that I'd be given the opportunity to share my interests in style, make-up, & what not. I've never thought of myself as an expert or remotely close to an expert on any of these topics but I do love sharing this portion of my life and what I have learned via trial & error. :)
What is your education?
John & I both attended a private Christian school in Arkansas. While he was in Virginia completing his first year of medical school, I stayed in Arkansas to complete my MBA.
Where did you get your blog name from?
As I mentioned, this blog was started as an online diary for John & me... The Sweetest Thing is a U2 song that has the line "a blue eyed boy met a brown eyed girl, Oh! Oh! The Sweetest Thing." Not to mention I think John is the sweetest thing ever & I do love his blue eyes!
Other Information...Because of the number of e-mails I receive about hair, makeup, jewelry, clothing, etc. I try to keep my blog very updated. The sidebars have the products I am asked about the most. I keep tutorials under the 'Videos' tab. And there's a "search" box if you are looking for something in particular just type in the brand or keyword and that should help you navigate.
Who takes my photos?John takes my photos! We are slowly but surely learning more and more about photography. Bear with us!
