Athea's Questions:

1. Why did you start your blog?

2. What is your full time job?

I am a Contract Specialist for the government

My family

Gospel, Neo-Soul, and Go-Go Music

8. What are your goals for this year?

To improve my blog and to become a better wife and mom. I mean of course I know I'm already awesome, but there is always room for improvement.  

9. Who is your favorite blogger?

Jean from Extra Petite (http://www.extrapetite.com/). She is my fashion crush and she is also the reason why I fell in love with Ann Taylor clothes. 

10. What is your dream career?

I already have my dream career as a Contract Specialist. I also would love my blog to become a success. I can have it all, right? 

11. Are you an online shopper or in-store kind of gal? 

I'm more of an in-store kind of gal, so that I can sneak things in so that my husband doesn't notice, lol. 

Sarah's questions:

1. Why did you start blogging?

Answered this above.

2. What is the last song you listened to?

A Jazmine Sullivan song because I went to her concert last night which was completely AWESOME!!!

3. What is your favorite animal?


4. What is your favorite makeup brand?

I honestly can't pick just one.

5. What is your favorite store?

Ann Taylor and the Loft because they sell really great petite sizes.

6. Do you have any pets?


7. What is the meaning behind your blog name?

The meaning behind Beauty Show Off spurs from me wanting to encourage women and men to show off their beauty by trying different beauty products I recommend or rave about. The meaning also comes from me loving to show off different beauty products that have worked well for me. I don't really like to talk bad or be negative about a specific brand so therefore, you will not see much of that on this blog :)

8. Do you have any talents?

I used to be a college cheerleader, so I can tumble. Haven't done much of that in a while so the most I can probably do is a back handspring at the moment. I would have to train and work up to the more advance tumbling. However, I'm going to leave that to my twin girls (Ruby and Zoey) because they are in gymnastics now, so I'll let them go ahead and have that. I'm too old :)

9. What is your zodiac sign?


10. What are some of your future goals?

To become a better blogger and to become more organized in order to improve my families life. (I know this is different than from above, but this is just an extension to it).

11. What are 3 things that make you happy?

God, my family and friends, and blogging :) (that's 4. I know).
