How did you come up with the name Nautical by Nature?
My sister actually came up with it! It's a play on the hip hop group Naughty By Nature

Do you have any siblings? Where do they live?
I have 2 older sisters. One is here in LA (she's the one that got married). My other sister is back east.

How did you get so many followers?
Time. I've been blogging for 3 years now! When I first started blogging I had a lot of time to comment on and read other blogs. I made some great blog friends and found a fun community of similar blogs. If you are just starting your own blog check out these posts (here and here) for my advice on starting a blog.

Do you get paid for posting about companies?
Nope. I don't make any money off of this blog. I do get free products from companies BUT I will always post that I am reviewing a product if it was given to me for free. I would never endorse a product or company that I didn't like. More importantly, I only include products/sites that I think my readers will like too!

As soon as I saw this tote I knew I had to share it with you all! How cute is this R. Williams anchor tote? The bag was originally custom made for the girls in Delta Gamma sorority but is now available on the R. Williams website for everyone to order.

Even better: Ryan, the designer, is offering Nautical by Nature readers a discount on the totes! Use this link and get the tote for $60 (originally $98): (**expires 2/19**)
