Tell me a little bit about Nora.
My name is Nora and I am 24 years old. I live in Oregon and have been married for 3 amazing years so far. I love my husband Sean and we have two furbabies
Lexi the cat
and Bouncer the dachshund.
I’m a SAHW and I love it! I really enjoy blogging and crocheting in my spare time as well as reading when I can.
What are you loving at the moment?
I’m loving KMS Makeover Spray aka. Dry Shampoo- I have also vlogged about some of my favorite things: Which you can find here
I am also loving (and hating) Pretty Little Liars, I’m addicted to that show but it comes back in 2013 so I can’t wait!
Who is your role model?
I think my role models are my older sisters. I have three older sisters, Kim, Jenny and Angela. They are each great in their own way. They taught me how to be resilient and bounce back from hard times, how to be responsible and have fun too! They are hardworking, strong women who all have wonderful kids and wonderful families. I love each of them very much.
Who is your style icon?
I don’t think I have one. I really like Lauren Conrad
& The Hills cast.
but I dress for comfort as well as style. My own style I’m still learning for myself.
What inspired you to start blogging?
I had a few friends who did and mentioned it. ! I wanted a place to keep memories where I couldn't lose them or forget about them. I started blogging right after we got married. I guess it started as a newlywed blog and morphed into a lifestyle blog. I write about pretty much everything and I’m getting more comfortable in my own writing style and being a consistent blogger is helping too!
Where can we find you?
What kind of posts can we find on your blog?
Life stories like this one, vlogs, a few crafts, pet posts and pictures, surveys/questionnaires and lots of link ups- I really enjoy doing those! My favorites are Fill in the Blank Friday and Oh How Pinteresting Wednesday! As well as each of my pages have lots of info about me, our wedding, my five tattoos, a goals list and blog love page for ad swap and sponsors!
What’s your favorite fall activity?
I love taking walks through leaves. I also really enjoy making cookies (and eating them) and drinking apple cider!
Christmas! I love the spirit of everything, the mood, the traditions- the giving and receiving (because who doesn't like receiving too, right?). I love Starbucks during the holidays- who doesn't?! I love learning more about family during this time too! And getting cozy by the fireplace with a cup of cocoa, that’s really nice too!
And finally, what advice would you give other bloggers?
I say, be yourself! As soon as you stop worrying about the numbers, they prove themselves to you. I have seen that as well with my own blog. Also SPONSOR with people you want to. Bigger blogs or someone you really admire- don’t be shy like I was. Even a few ad swaps or a 10$ ad can make a huge difference. Most of all have fun writing and post pictures (they do help!). If you don’t enjoy it, why do it? Right?
