Q & A

What's up y'all! I recently asked you all on my Instagram Story to send me all your questions, so tonight I'm answering them for you! I had a lot of repeat questions about my hair and makeup so I'm thinking I should do a full post on both? Let me know your thoughts :)

1. How do you curl your hair? 
I curl my hair a couple different ways but my most common way of curling it is by using a 1 inch iron and wrap my hair around it like you would with a curling wand. I have found that using a regular curling iron works just as well as a wand. I use this curling iron and LOVE it! I also use this hairspray and it keeps my curls locked in place.

2. What is your everyday skincare routine?
My skincare routine is pretty basic, which is exactly how I want it. I have super sensitive skin so I can't really experiment with products. I wash my face with Cetaphil morning and night and use this lotion morning and night as well. I have tried a few different face oils and have found that jojoba oil and rose hip oil do well on my face!

3. Best affordable online shops? 
Here's a list of my favorite online stores that won't break the bank:
Forever 21
Princess Polly

4. Long/healthy hair tips? 
When it comes to my hair I don't do anything special, I guess I'm kind of lucky that way. I typically wash my hair with Dove shampoo or Head and Shoulders (if you're hair is looking dull I really recommend H&S!). I also use Dove volume dry shampoo and it adds SOOO much volume!

5. What do you use to edit photos? 
I use Lightroom! I have my own presets that I created and use those on pretty much all of my pictures. I'm thinking of selling them but haven't quite decided yet... thoughts?

6. What kind of workouts do you do? 
My workouts mainly consist of weightlifting. I used to run all the time and do tons of cardio but I have found that building muscle is what I love doing the most. You really can't beat the feeling of being strong and sexy! I also don't focus on the number on the scale. I'm the heaviest I've ever been and that's because I'm the strongest I've ever been.

7. Are you on a diet plan? 
I do not follow a diet regime or plan. I don't count calories and I don't restrict myself of certain food groups. I listen to my body and eat what feels right and what I believe is healthy for my diet. I DO eat healthy and pay attention to the foods I put in my body but I don't measure out portions, see if they item works in the caloric intake for the day. I just try to make the best decisions in every meal I eat. This works for me and has always worked for me. Sometimes people need a plan to follow for accountability and I totally get that. When it comes to your diet, do what works best for YOU and YOUR body! 

8. What is your full-time job?
So I plan on doing an entire blog post on this, but I work in sports broadcasting for Tennessee Athletics! That's why a lot of my Instagram stories involve me at some kind of sporting event. My life revolves around UT Athletics and I wouldn't have it any other way.

9. Favorite trend?
I've always been a sneaker kind of girl and I love how sneakers for women are starting to become more popular. I love pairing a high-top Nike shoe with a trendy outfit.

10. Would you ever blog full-time?
Blogging isn't something I've ever wanted to do full-time. I just really enjoy sharing my style and everyday life with people but I believe there is more to life than blogging and social media! I really respect girls that do do this full-time, because I'm sure it isn't easy! I just love being able to write a post when I want to and when I'm really into something.

Fall Outfits with 2020 Ave

Dress // Similar Jacket // Shoes // Hat

Bodysuit // Jeans // Blazer

It's finally starting to feel like fall in Tennessee. I feel like it takes forever for fall to really settle in here but once it does, it's like BAM! The leaves start falling all at once and the temps drop pretty dramatically. Besides the beauty of fall, I think what I love most is fall outfits. I collaborated with 2020AVE again to bring you guys a couple trendy looks to try out this season.

Check  Me Out Plaid Dress 
This 90's inspired plaid dress is definitely in for the fall season. I like pairing it with a fitted t-shirt underneath or throwing on a black denim jacket. This is also a dress you can dress up or down, so it has a lot of versatility!

Floral Lace Bodysuit 
I'm really in to the lingerie styled bodysuits. It's definitely a more risqué type look but when worn the correct way, it can actually be a very classy yet sexy look! I love this bodysuit with a blazer but it would also look good by itself with jeans or even a slouchy sweater. It's also at a great price point!

After working with 2020AVE the first time, I got a lot of questions about the brand and quality of clothes. So far I have been super impressed with everything I've received from them and the quality is great! Who doesn't love trendy clothes the won't break the bank?
