Fall things + Questions with Always Ashten

Fall Essentials

bag // cardi // book // boots // mug // scarf
When fall rolls around, my mind immediately jumps to cozy cardigans and reading books with a hot cup of coffee or tea. I don't drink coffee in the summer, something about a hot drink on a hot day just isn't appealing to me. But the minute it drops below 65 you better believe I turn into a coffee drinking fool. I just bought the book thief, but haven't started it yet so I'm hoping I enjoy it.

And what is fall without the perfect boots and scarf? I actually bought these exact boots a few weeks ago and I am absolutely loving them. They have a zipper, which my last fall boots were missing and I don't think I'll ever buy a pair of boots without a zipper again. I feel like when fall comes, it's time to put away the bright colored bag and go with a neutral that matches everything and this bag from Fossil would be perfect.

What are your fall essentials?


Today I'd like to introduce you to the lovely Ashten of Always Ashten. The moment I started reading her blog, I knew she and I would get along and I have not been disappointed! This lady is seriously the bomb dot com, she hosts an awesome vlogging link up every Friday where she vlogs like a boss (and all of us pretend to be bosses) AND she is one of the fabulous hosts of Happy Hour Hangout and if you don't know what that is, click on that link and prepare to be amazed.

1. What exactly made you want to become a blogger and what inspires your writing?
I've always blogged in some capacity since 2005. Writing has always been my creative outlet, the way I express myself and the best way I know how to get my feelings out, without having to pay for therapy. I finally got serious about blogging in June of this year and am amazed at how quickly my blog has grown. I'm inspired by my life experiences, the lessons I've learned and the people who have always stood by my side.

2. Tell us about your decision to move across country from California to Georgia.
When I graduated college in 2009, jobs in my field of study were scarce. I needed a change of scenery and the South had always interested me so I got a job, packed my bags and moved to Atlanta in 2 weeks. People call me brave for doing it, I just think it was necessary.

3. What are three things you couldn't make it through the day without and why?
The simple answer to this is coffee times 3. But I know I couldn't make it though the day without my dog, Warner too.

4. If you were to win a million dollars what would you spend it on?
I would pay off some debt, save some, get a new car and take a vacation. Adulthood is a mofo.

5. Lastly, share a few of your favorite posts with us.
