How did you two meet?
We met in high school through mutual friends, but never lived in the same city. Before we started Somewhere, Lately, we were really just acquaintances/Facebook friends lol, but now we text all day long about any + everything! ;)

Who do you recommend for hairstyles in Chicago & New York?
Brooke: I go to the Red Door Spa which is an Elizabeth Arden salon & have gone to a few different people and liked them all! The last time I got my hair done was in Iowa at an Aveda salon. I'm due for a good cut/color soon, and recently came across @hairthrone on Instagram a while ago (she used to work at Fox & Jane), but just went out on her own, and am going to try to get an appointment with her! Her color is amazing.
Meggan: I've been to Erica at Kala Salon (it's located in River West) and love her! She's always done an amazing job with my color and cuts. The salon has a cool vibe, cool people and they offer champagne by the glass - yes please ;) I also have gone to Chloe at Solo Salon in the West Loop and she was great! This reminds me that I'm way overdue for an appointment, I haven't got my hair done since I had Camden in June!

Why did you decide to start a blog together?
We were both blogging on our own for about a year before we started blogging together. Blogging takes a lot of time and since we are both extremely busy, we came together to start Somewhere, Lately with the hope that we could still write a consistent blog without having to take so much time out of our personal lives to do so. It's also so much more fun having a partner you can bounce ideas off and create content with. It's great to have someone to lean on!

Meggan - where are your blue chairs and pillows from?
The chairs are from Target, (#targetdoesitagain) linked here. And the pillows are from Pillomatic Etsy shop. I'm planning on doing a tour of our apartment soon, just waiting on some finishing touches. Decorating is never ending!

What are you favorite nude lipstick colors/brands?
Brooke: I just picked up some new colors from Mac that I'm obsessed with. I purchased this in 'My Flip Side,' this in 'Viva Glam II,' and this in 'Whirl.' 'My Flip Side' is an amazing lip balm with the best tint ever! It's such a pretty color for fall, and the combo of Whirl and Viva Glam II is a great nude/neutral fall lipstick color - not too light and not too dramatic. I also loooove this lipstick in Amaretto Swirl, and this in Naked Dolly.
Meggan: My two all time favorite nude is 'Pure Zen' and 'Myth' from Mac. I recently pick up this Patentpolish lip pencil in 'Innocent' and looove it! It's a combo of lip balm and lipstick.
