How long have you been blogging/what made you start this blog?

I’ve actually been blogging since I was in high school, back in Open Diary days. I then went on to LiveJournal, and a little over two years ago, I switched to this current blog. I got into a rut and started wearing pajamas almost every day, since I work from home. It made me depressed. I started this blog to motivate me to get dressed up daily, which boosts my mood and helps me concentrate/wake up. It became much more than that, and I am extremely grateful.

What is your ethnicity?

I’m 1/4 Scottish (my dad’s side). The rest is a mix.

What does “courtesy of” mean?

“Courtesy of” or “c/o” means it was given to me as a gift from a company. I won’t wear anything on my blog unless it is something I truly love. I am extremely forthcoming about what is given to me, so you never have to wonder. I occasionally use affiliate links, which are independently motivated and not driven by the brand or company I’m linking to. If you see something you like and click on my link to buy it, you are helping me keep this blog afloat. Not all of my links are affiliate links – only some. You can tell it’s an affiliate link if it starts with a unique URL and then redirects you to the merchant.

Heads up! www.acmsocialsplash.com occasionally receives vendor/ brand sponsorships for mentioning their products and services and uses affiliate links when available, from which I receive a small percentage of sales or clicks.
