Meet Ashley of Turquoise and Teale {Blogger Interview}

Ashley of Turquoise and Teale has impeccable style and fantastic taste. Her "currently loving" posts each week are always one of my favorites and she always manages to share a recipe thats equally healthy and delicious. She's recently engaged and calls a few different cities "home."  I'll let her do the rest of the talking...

1. Occupation & Location:

I'm lucky enough to have a great job that lets me travel and essentially work wherever I have an internet connection. I'm a self-employed manufacture's rep who works with commercial interior designers. We mainly work on hotels and restaurants, but help supply designers with the products they need (fabric, furniture, lighting). I split my month up between Atlanta, GA , St. Louis, MO and Charleston, SC. 

2. What made you decide to start blogging?

I started blogging when I first moved to Charleston after college graduation. It was a great way to keep my family & friends in the loop on new recipes I tried, favorite products I found or exciting adventures in a new city!

3. Do you remember the first blog you read?

One of the first blogs I started reading a few years ago was actually Could I Have That? It's still one of my favorites to this day. Samantha has amazing style and I love her laid back California vibe. [link to Could I Have That: www.couldihavethat.com]

4. What do you love to blog about most?

That's a tough question... I love sharing new recipes, but also can't hold back from showcasing a new product I've fallen in love with. A mixture of the two would be my answer!

5. Where is your favorite place to vacation?

One of my favorite places to vacation would be Seaside, FL. My family grew up vacationing there and it always feels like home when I turn onto 30-A. The water is crystal blue, the sand is white and it doesn't get much cuter than the main street shops and restaurants. 

6. Three favorite stores to shop for clothes?

J.Crew, Zara, Shopbop

7. Three things you can't live without?

My family/friends, my camera and hot yoga

8. Favorite room in your home?

I have to do each house justice.. My favorite room in St. Louis is our sunroom that we've turned into my office. The natural light is amazing to work in and it's such a bright and motivating space! In Charleston it's out on the porch with a glass of wine and a good book. In Atlanta it's curled up in a cozy chair in our living room by the window. 

9. Three favorite stores to shop for home decor?

Homegoods, GDC Home in Charleston, West Elm

10. What does a typical day look like for you?

A typical day for me starts off with a cup of coffee and answering emails. I'm usually carting around fabric books and sample chairs to clients, but after work you can usually find me in a Pure Barre or hot yoga class. If the weather's warm I'm outside with friends, beverages and appetizers enjoying the longer days.
