Meet Carlee, from Almost Endearing


I am very happy to introduce you to Carlee from Almost Endearing. I hope you enjoy meeting her as much as I did! Don't forget to pop over and visit her blog after you read the interview: it's always full of delicious recipes, beautiful photos and fun posts.

When and why did you decide to start your blog? 

I started my blog in March 2012 (this year). I was about halfway through my freshman year of college and I knew I wanted/needed something to express my creativity through. I also loved reading fashion/lifestyle blogs and I thought "What a great group of people". I wanted to be a part of the fun.

Tell us a little about your blog.

I would have to describe my blog as a lifestyle blog. There is fashion, food, photography, DIY projects, adventures and random stuff that I love. I want it to include everything that I love and not just one area of interest.


Why did you decide to change the name of your blog to Almost Endearing?

 I changed my blog name about a month ago to Almost Endearing. Before it was All Things Average Girl. When I started this blog, I thought I was the average girl. But after being in the blogging community for a couple of months I realized that none of us are average and I didn't want to be constrained by my blog title. So I changed it. I don't know if I will be writing about the same stuff in a year and I want my blog and I to be able to grow together, not apart. So I picked a name that describes me. Almost Endearing. 

What do you like to do in your free time?

In my free time I really enjoy spending time with my family. Is that cheesy? I also really like going on walks or bike rides. They just sooth ones soul a little. I love cooking and going on mini adventures around my area. I also write my boyfriend, who is currently 2,000 miles away in South Carolina, a letter every day. 


Tell us a little about your style.

My style is whatever I feel comfortable in and flatters my body type. I am a huge fan of indie/tribal prints. I LOVE maxi skirts/dresses. And I am a sucker for an awesome pair of sandals. I would say my style is definitely a mix: a little casual, girly, indie, rock, whatever I am feeling that day.

What is your favourite thing about Washington state, where you live?

My favourite thing is that there are two sides to the state. You see, Washington is divided by the Cascade mountain range. And the two sides of the state are so different. Eastern Washington is more rural (country), dry, wide range of seasons and weather, and open spaces. Western Washington is more urban with lots of big cities (Seattle), rainy and green, with more people and diversity. That is what makes Washington so awesome, you get a wide variety of everything and it's all in one state!

What hopes and dreams do you have for the future?

I want to get my college degree, hopefully in Photomedia. I want to be a photographer (not sure what type). Seeing the world is on the top of my priorities list! I also would like to own my own business someday, whether that is a photography business or an ice cream shop. I also would like to get married and have kids one day but that is a little far out. 


Can you tell us more about your boyfriend who is often mentioned on your blog?

My boyfriend's name is Clark, he is in the US Army. We first met when we were in 7th grade. We started dating junior year of high school and were each others high school sweethearts. Cheesy? We graduated from the same high school. But we mesh really well together. He is so supportive of me and I am of him. He is currently is Army basic training so I have not seen him in a few months. But in less than 30 days I will be flying to South Carolina to see him. I am sure I will write all about it on my blog when the time comes.
