Andrea Ament of Legal Miss Sunshine // Behind The Blog Scene


I've barely had time to catch my breath since returning from Alt Summit and I promise to post my event wrap-up soon but I will say that one of the best things about making the trip was the incredible community of women I got to meet and chat to, online and at the event itself. Once such blogger was wedding stylist, Etsy shop owner, attorney, roadtripper, and crafter by the name of Andrea Ament of Legal Miss Sunshine.

Andrea is living the life of her dreams and has an amazing story to share - she also describes herself as  partial to flamingos, bookstores, Disneyland, cheeseburgers, and flea markets - a girl after my own heart. Enjoy!

Describe your blog in 3 words… 
Adventure, DIY, Fun!
What is your blogging manifesto? 
I hope to inspire my readers to adventure somewhere, try something, or make something new.
Top 3 blogging essentials? 
1. Camera. It doesn't matter what kind. The best camera is the one in your hand.
2. Adobe Photoshop + Lightroom. In case the camera in your hand is an iPhone.
3. Editorial Calendar. To keep you on track and organized.
My biggest blogging moment/milestone was….
Ask me again at the end of the year, I'm still working on it. 
Best piece of advice I've been given? Blog regularly and use an editorial calendar.
I'm dreaming about traveling to...
Italy, Morocco, Scotland, Iceland, Yosemite, New Orleans, New England, Maine, Savannah/Charleston, the Oregon coast, I could go on and on. 
Best piece of advice to a newbie blogger? 
Always work to improve your photos.
If I wasn't blogging I'd be… 
At Disneyland. Everyday. No, seriously, I can tell you what I still would NOT be doing: Lawyering. Nope, I don't want to wear a suit or be in court. No, thank you! 
Behind the scenes of my blog looks like… 
An earthquake just hit Los Angeles! Currently I have Astroturf and confetti all over my office floor, the insides of my linen closet are in my bedroom, the kitchen is just a mess from a recipe shoot, and the garage is a death trap. Seriously, I won't let my husband go into the garage right now for fear he will get hurt.
This year I'm most excited about…
Accomplishing my goals: growing my blog and Etsy shops and launching my event planning and styling company, The Party Task Force. Lots of awesomeness to come this year and I'm super excited for all of it!
