What kind of food do you eat?
I live by the motto of eating intuitively, which means I choose to eat mostly gluten free in our home, but if I’m traveling, I let myself be open to almost anything. When I’m in Europe, especially, I’ll stuff myself with wine, baguettes & as many French cheeses as possible. It usually takes a good month for my skin to clear but it’s a side effect I deal with.
What kind of camera do you use?
I use a full frame, Nikon d800.
Having 4 kids, blogging & social media, how do you do it all?
I don’t. Duh. Anyone who tells you they do is a liar liar pants on fire. I do what I can, when I can & try to remember to give myself grace.
Can we be friends?
YES! I never thought you’d ask. I spend most my time on Instagram & Snapchat. I hope you’ll join me over there.
Can I have you promote my product?
If our values align, I’d love to work with you. One of my favorite things about blogging is working with brands I love. Check out this page.
Are you a really good singer?
Well, *blushes* I have been known to belt a tune or two.
Why do you only wear neutral colors & what’s all this stuff about minimalist fashion?
I know what works best for me & I know what I like! While I do occasionally purchase pieces from major retail stores, I prefer to selectively choose pieces that can answer 3 questions – Are they timeless? Are they well made, sustainably made, responsibly sourced or crafted by artisans (American or abroad)? Do they fit into my desired cut & color palate?
What kind of pseudo hippie are you? You don’t even use natural hair care products!
I stand by a firm policy of using what works. Period. While I can proudly support natural beauty products like Beautycounter or W3ll People, I have yet to find a natural hair care line that works as well as salon products. So until then… I’ll just balance that out by using my menstrual cup & Thinx, which, when combined elevate me to hippie status level four.
Have a question? Contact me. I’d love to hear from you!
