How did you get started on your blog? G: We have all the same interests and we like to share everything with our friends. S: We initially met working for a fashion company so off the bat we knew we had that in common. One night while baking blondes together we came up with the idea to start Blondes On The Rocks and just like that it began. Our friends are always asking us what makeup and other items to buy so this was a perfect excuse to share all of that.

What is one food you are constantly craving? S: Mashed Potatoes. G: That is very accurate for Sally. S: I’m a mashed potato critic. G: For me, sushi. S: Now there is one big difference between us.
