These are some of my most frequently asked questions!
How old are you?
I get asked this a lot (haha) and it’s usually followed by an “I hope you don’t mind me asking” or “I hope this isn’t rude”…..haha! I don’t mind anyone asking my age. I’m 34 years old, so that’s like…….84 in blogger years….right??? 😉
How tall are you?
I’m a hair shy of 5’7″. I have a really long torso and very short legs. This is why you will often see me say I order my jeans in a size short and shirts in a tall if available.
What size do you wear?
This all depends on the brand. Typically I’m a size small in tops and a size 26/2 in jeans. Generally, in t-shirts, I will size up to a medium. I always like to disclose if an item is TTS or if you should size up or down.
Do you workout and/or how do you find time to workout?
Yes! I’ve been going to OrangeTheory since I was 10 weeks PP with Maddyn. I’ve always enjoyed working out and I’ve tried boot camps, gym memberships, home workouts, etc and OrangeTheory is by far the one I’ve enjoyed the most and the one I’ve seen results the quickest. I go 3x/week (usually MWF) and I attend the 5 am classes. People think I’m crazy, haha, but I really enjoy going that early. I’ve tried going on the weekend or the evening class when my husband got home but I hated that I missed bedtime with the girls and I always had trouble falling asleep because you feel so energized afterward. I also look at it as my “me time” for the day! If you have wanted to try it, your first class is free. I promise you will love it!
What does your husband do?
My husband is a chemical engineer and is the Regional Manager for a natural gas / crude oil company.
Any more children in the future?
Unless God has other plans for us, our family feels complete right now. Even prior to kids, my husband and I always said we wanted two.
I recently got extensions and I have gotten numerous questions about them…
I have NBR extensions (natural beaded rows) and my girl Amanda at Amanda K Styling did them for me! She and her assistant are AMAZING! Maintenance wise, I just have to go in every 6-8 weeks to get them moved up/tightened. So far, I am absolutely obsessed with them!
Why did you start a blog?
I have always loved fashion and have followed bloggers for soooo long. It’s always been a dream of mine to start my own blog but honestly, I was too scared to take that leap. To be quite honest, I am a very shy person (so what better thing to do than throw myself out there on the internet, right! haha) But 3 years ago, my dad was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and passed away a few months after. This was THE most emotional, depressing, exhausting experience I have ever gone through in my life. From the moment he was diagnosed, it was my mission to make him better. But after fighting for 3 1/2 months, God had bigger plans for him and called him home. I may go into more detail about the entire experience one day. But something that it taught me was that life is soooo very short. We have no idea how long we have in this life, so why waste it being scared to go after your dreams and not live this gift of life to the fullest??
My biggest piece of advice is this:
If you have a dream, a goal, whatever, don’t let your fear of failing stop you.
Don’t let your anxiety of what others may think, prevent you from going after your dreams.
Don’t let anyone who may not believe in you and your dream make you not believe in yourself.
The ONLY person who can stand in your way, is YOU!
So you do you girlfriend!
Who takes your pictures and what do you use to take them?
My husband (God Bless em) takes 95% of my pictures and I take the other 5%. We have a Canon Rebel T6i camera or we just use my iPhone.
How do you edit your pictures?
I use the Lightroom app on my phone or on my computer.
What’s your favorite wine?
Pinot Noir is my favorite and I LOVE the one by La Crema. When it’s hot outside though, Pinot Grigio is my wine of choice!
