Today, we are featuring Alison from Puppies & Pretties. 
You can take a peak into her world on her on Instagram.

1. Other than blogging, what do you do for a living (profession)?
My "real" job title is Digital Marketing Specialist. I work with social media all day along with website updates. We are getting close to building a brand new site soon, so that will be a major undertaking (the current site has 6,000+ pages!) and I can't wait to get started!

2. How would you describe yourself in 3 words?
Bookworm, fashion-lover, puppy snuggler

3. What is something that people might be surprised to know about you?
Growing up, I was extremely active in 4-H, FFA, and the National Junior Angus Association. I showed cattle, sheep and goats. It still feels odd to not be going to cattle shows all summer long. Good thing my nephew and nieces are getting to the age to start showing so I can start going again!

4. What hobbies do you have other than blogging?
I love playing sports. This summer, I was in 3 leagues; coed slowpitch, women's slowpitch, and coed sand volleyball. This winter, I'll probably play on a coed volleyball team and a women's team. While slowpitch is fun, I still miss fastpitch!

5. What inspired you to start blogging?
I had been following blogs for some time and thought it would be fun to do. When I left a job, all my coworkers asked me to post my outfits on Facebook so they could continue to see them (I was considered the fashionista of the company). Instead, I started Puppies & Pretties when I had about a week off between jobs and haven't look back since!

6. What is your style “uniform”?
My style is a little bit preppy, a little bit feminine, and a whole lot of quirky. I'm not sure I have a specific uniform, but if I had to choose, it would be a fun dress, great jewelry and a good pair of boots (for fall/winter) or sandals.

7. What is the last book you read and would you recommend it?
I'm a big reader, as in 4+ books a month. The last book I read was Dragonlove by Marc Secchia. I LOVE this series. You have to read Dragonfriend first though. But if you like magic, dragons, friendships, and a bit of mystery, you will like this series.
