Featured-O2O-Member-AshleighEvansWe’re happy to introduce our latest featured O2O member, Ashleigh Evans! Ashleigh is a busy Mom of three sharing budget friendly recipes with tons of flavor on her blog, Dash of Evans. She loves to show families how to cook from home with confidence and to get kiddos involved with the process. SnapChat is her favorite new platform to interact with readers. You’ll find her there sharing weeknight meals 4-5 times a week, plus a weekend cocktail how-to. When Ashleigh’s not blogging, she volunteers at school as the parent teacher club (PTC) vice-president. She is pop-culture obsessed and loves ALL things Bravo.

Favorite part of being an O2O Member:

I love the community and unique campaigns that are offered–unlike anywhere else!

When did you begin blogging?

I have been blogging for over 6 years now! I started when my twins were 9-10 months when I realized many people my age needed help using coupons or finding coupons for baby products. After my kiddos started eating like little football players, my blog started to be more about cooking and food.

Who is another blogger you admire and why?

I love that social media can bring bloggers closer together. Stefanie of Sarcastic Cooking is always an inspiration to me! She has 2 little ones and still creates awesome blog posts with droolworthy food. Plus, she cracks me up!

Is there a piece of advice, quote, or mantra that you live by?

“It’s better to live your own destiny imperfectly than to live an imitation of somebody else’s life with perfection” Being a blogger, it’s hard not to get caught up with what everyone else is doing. Follow your own path and trust destiny!

What is the best compliment you have ever received?

People always say they love my smile. I love to brighten people’s day if possible with either a laugh or compliment. Connecting with people is so essential, especially in the blogging world!

What was your last best meal?

Chicago style pizza. I believe it’s all about the balance and I will NEVER say no to a great pizza and glass of wine. Life is too short!

Is there a song you can’t get enough of, listen to on repeat, know all the lyrics, obsessed with?

The entire Prince 1999 album..or Purple Rain. I’m also obsessed with anything Oasis or Britney Spears–I have a huge spectrum of music I love.

What is the best thing to do where you live?

We have the best seasons. I know most people complain about the cold and snow, but I love that we have a hot summer, beautiful fall, a winter that makes you hibernate (or get outside and ski!) and a spring that reminds you of how beautiful your area really can be. In Michigan we can truly go from snow to 70 in a 2-day span, like last week!

Night owl or early bird?

Night owl! I love the quiet and calm of working in to the late hours.

What is your favorite time of the year?

I love fall. The beautiful colors, sweaters and boots, plus new TV shows!

Name 3 things you can’t live without (besides family/friends/faith).

1. Music. I have a constant soundtrack in my head and so many songs bring back a flood of memories. I like so many different types of music and spontaneous dance parties are the best!
2. Mexican food, especially nachos and guacamole.
3. Wine. I have 3 little ones….it’s a necessity!
