We have seen a recent trend amongst our fellow bloggers on instagram lately. An effort to be real. And we love this! So in the spirit of sharing our genuine selves with you, we thought we’d share five fun facts about each of us.
What’s your day job?
H: I work as a User Experience Designer.
A: Public relations professional
You can jet off to anywhere in the world right now. Where do you go?
H: I have a list a mile long of places I’d love to see. But if I had to pick tonight? I’d explore Greece. I can’t imagine a more beautiful coastline!
A: Thailand! I can’t stop daydreaming about a trip to this beautiful place complete with gorgeous beaches, temples, delicious food and of course, elephants!
What’s your guilty pleasure?
H: Early 2000s pop music.
A: Keeping up with the Kardashians and dessert.
What inspired you to start Simply, Darling Duo?
H: I was looking for an additional creative outlet as well as a way to share some of my favorite ideas and products with others. And an opportunity to do both of these things with my best friend? I was sold.
A: Ditto to everything Haley said. I love writing and am so passionate about fashion, beauty and enjoying being a 20-something year old. Plus, we’ve wanted to blog individually for years because we are both passionate about living life to the fullest. We do (almost) everything together and are always eachother’s biggest fans, so it made sense to start a blog together!
What is your go-to drink?
H: If I know it’s going to be done right (like Ashley’s!), a jalapeño margarita. Otherwise, you can’t go wrong with a gin & tonic.
A: Always a jalapeño margarita. Recently, I have also been loving a Deep Eddy Grapefruit Vodka with club soda and lime.
