June Sponsor Spotlight: Semi-Charmed Kind of Life & La Mia Bella Vita

June 8, 2012

Today’s sponsors have particularly special places in my heart. One is a life-time sorority girl like me, one is my sister from another mister (seriously, we are exactly alike!) I hope you’ll enjoy getting to know them. Learn more about Megan and Ally below:

Megan, Semi-Charmed Kind of Life
Blog   //   Twitter
Semi-Charmed Kind of Life is a post-grad lifestyle blog with a heavy focus on travel and books. I started it as a summer project last year before studying abroad in Africa, and then I turned it into more of a daily hobby after I graduated from the University of Missouri in December. I now live in New Mexico and work for an adventure-fitness magazine, but I’m excited to start traveling as a Leadership Consultant for my sorority, Alpha Delta Pi, during the upcoming school year!

What’s one blog that you’re really loving right now?
You mean besides The Observant Turtle? :) I read a lot a travel blogs, but my absolute favorite is C’est Christine. She’s a 20-something from California who takes fabulous trips around the world, but she also shares interesting life musings along with her gorgeous travel photos. Plus, after reading her blog for a few months, I discovered she is an Alpha Delta Pi sister and we have mutual friends! Of course, that made me like her blog even more.
What’s your favorite post that you’ve written?
My post on the role of religion and faith in the Rwandan genocide was really difficult for me to write, but I think that’s why I’m so proud of it. I know it’s long, so you can just skip to the last section if you want to hear my main reflections. And if you want to read something a little more uplifting, my blogiversary post highlights all my favorite posts of the last year. :)

Tell us something that we wouldn’t know about you just by looking at your blog!
I’m pretty long-winded and share lots of random facts about myself on my blog, so this is hard! But I guess you wouldn’t know that I have seen every episode of One Tree Hill. You wouldn’t know this because I’m totally embarrassed by it. I don’t even really enjoy the show, but I got hooked when my roommate starting watching the whole series from season one. When you start from the beginning, it’s hard to stop!

 Ally, La Mia Bella Vita
I’m Ally, you can find me blogging over at La Mia Bella Vita! I’m a Virginia girl going to school and living it up in North Carolina. I started blogging almost a year ago during the crappiest time in my life and I’ve been hooked ever since! I blog about anything and everything; from Outfits of the Day to recipes to home décor to my daily adventures, you name it I got you covered.
What’s one blog you’re really loving right now?
I find it VERY hard to just pick one! When it comes to décor my current fave’s are Apartment Therapy (apartmenttherapy.com) and Young House Love (younghouselove.com). I follow and love so many personal blogs but a few I’ve been following for while are Confessions of a 20 Something )pinklouloulove.com) and Love, Lipstick and Pearls (lovelipstickandpearls.blogspot.com), I’m obsessed with their hair and makeup tutorials!
What’s your favorite post you’ve written?
I thought this would be an easy one to pick but it was very difficult! In general my OOTD posts are usually my favorite, just because I think they are the most fun! If I had to choose one it would be my post ‘The Little Things…” because it shares my ridiculous obsession with crafting along with my love for my sorority family!
Tell us something about you that we wouldn’t know from looking at your blog.

Let’s see, I’m actually really short (I learned from Whitney that apparently I appear taller in the blog world than real life!), and I’m pretty shy, nerdy and oddly competitive.

Thanks for being June sponsors ladies! Love you both!
