Do I have hair extensions?
No, I don’t have them in anymore. I had hair extensions after I had my first child because I lost so much hair. I then kept them in through my second baby boy, but I finally took them out about three years ago and have LOVED the freedom of having no hair extensions! Don’t get me wrong, they were awesome, but the maintenance was too much for me.
Do you have eyelash extensions?
No, I used to have these as well. I got eyelash extensions about six years ago when it was first blowing up, and I did not have a very good experience. My eyes ended up getting completely swollen and I lost almost all of my real lashes. I have been so scared ever since to try it again. I also use an AMAZING mascara so I feel like I don’t need them.
What is my diet?
I actually have a pretty high in fat diet, but eat very few carbs. If you’re familiar with the Ketogenic diet, it is most similar to that, however not as strict. I’m going to write a blog about what a week of my eating looks like, so stay tuned!
Do I workout?
Not really. I did BBG last year before my Hawaii trip, but I honestly never made it past week 13! My plan is to start again, but I just haven’t yet. I eat really well for the most part, so that’s how I stay fit! Plus, I have 3 little boys with quite a lot of energy to chase after every day!
Why did I start blogging?
Honestly, I followed a lot of really amazing Blogger’s, and I would always look and think I could do this too, but then quite honestly was too scared to jump in. I was worried that it was too saturated of a space, and I wouldn’t be successful. But then, with the support of my husband and a few close friends I took the risk and jumped right in! I have a degree
in Broadcast Journalism, and I have always loved to write, so I though combining my love to write and fashion was a no brainer. I wrote a blog about this here.

Am I done having kids?
Yes. Although my husband wanted 5 total with one being a little girl, we are done at 3. I unfortunately cannot carry another child, so if we were to ever add another one to the bunch, it would be either through a surrogate or adoption. We are open to both.
Where do I work (besides blogging)?
I wrote a blog about this too, on how I went from a Starbucks barista to business owner. Short story, I own a Marketing/Advertising agency located in downtown Seattle.
What is my favorite place to shop?
This is a hard one because I have so many! If I had to choose where I buy most of my clothing though it would be Nordstrom and Revolve.
What Spray tan do I use?
I actually go to a Local place in Seattle (Seattle Suntan) and get airbrush sprayed a day before I shoot for my blog. However on any other day I use a product called MineTan colorViolet.
What is my favorite Place to travel?
Well, my favorite city in the world is NYC. I always tell my husband I should have been born there. When I am in New York City, I feel most like myself. I relate more to the people in NYC than any other city I have ever been. So overall, I would have to say New York. I also love Chicago. The Chicago Bears are one of the main loves of my life, so traveling every year to watch them play I have fallen in love with that city as well. My husband proposed to me there too so it holds a very special place in my heart. If we are talking about family travel though, I would say Maui. We take the kids there every single year and my husband and I honeymooned there, so Maui is also a very magical place for our family.
