One of the hardest parts of being an online influencer is answering questions. Hear me out; it’s not because I don’t want to answer them, but I get them everywhere.
I want to answer every question but there are times ( like this past year when I was dealing with both of my in-law’s health issues and then death) that I’m not able to get to all of them, and I feel horrible.
When I start to get the same questions over and over again, I like to do a Questions and Answers post hoping if I haven’t answered your question, I will answer it here.
1. What is the paint color in your home?
I get asked this all the time. It’s a little darker than this picture, and the color is Greenbriar Beige from Benjamin Moore. I recently painted my dining room White Dove from Benjamin Moore, and I will eventually paint more of my home in the lighter color. Also, you can find my jute rug HERE.
2. How do you organize your clothes? Your shoes?
Okay, ladies let’s have a serious conversation about this question. Because I’m a fashion blogger everyone assumes I’m organized (why?) and that I have a massive closet. Both statements are false.
I am organized at times. I also clear out stuff all the time. I don’t like clutter nor do I keep extra stuff. So I don’t have a lot of clutter in my home.
When we were purchasing our home last year, we had a list of things we were looking for in a new home.
- Land ✔️
- Double front doors ✔️
- Large kitchen ✔️
- Fireplace ✔️
- Large Master Bath ✔️
- Large Master Closet – Did not get this!
We have extra bedrooms in our home with large walk-in closets (bigger than the master, makes no sense!) and I use those for extra storage. But my master closet is small. I put my shoes on shelves. I don’t store them in boxes. I am constantly trying on outfits, taking pictures, etc. and I don’t want to go through shoe boxes.
3. I get a ton of questions about what I eat? When I exercise?
I completely understand that if you’re doing the FWTFL bootcamp, the food thing can get crazy. But there is a lot of help. I follow Beth @seersuckerandsaddles (Beth is a sweetie, but she does cuss so if that bothers you, don’t follow her. While we are different I still love what she shares with the FWTFL) on Instagram. She shares lots of food options,
I also follow @lorenmattingly on Instagram, and she shares lots of good food choices for the FWTFL.
I’m not a person who has to change up my daily meal plans. I can eat the same lunch all week. I love to eat chicken or tuna salad. I fix it with 1 T Organic Mayo, some pickle relish, and one hard-boiled egg.
My favorite place to share food options is on Instastories. Here is a clip I shared this week. If you want to see the behind the scenes stuff of my life (and if you don’t I completely understand. Haha!) Instastories is where you’ll find it.
4. Who are your favorite Christian authors/speakers?
Oh my, I have a ton! I love Lysa Teurkerst, Christine Caine, Lisa Bevere, Beth Moore, and Priscilla Shirer. I like women who encourage, who are real and who love Jesus.
Right now, I’m facilitating It’s Not Supposed To Be This Way on Sunday nights at my church.
5. What is one beauty advice you would give to a woman over 40?
Well, we could talk all day about this!! I mentioned on Instagram and in my email (if you don’t get my daily email, you can subscribe here, I also share more in my email than on the blog) that I get Botox and filler.
I know everyone does not agree, but it’s an individual choice. Overwhelmingly, you all want to know what I have had done, and because we’re friends, I’m going to share. Friends share this kind of stuff with each other. Stay tuned!!
If I had to say what one beauty advice I would give women over 40, it would be to make sure you have eyebrows that are defined. As we age, we lose our eyebrows, and they lose their shape. Eyebrows make your face!
You can easily fill them in with eyebrow pencil or powder. Right now I’m using this.
Okay, I hope this helps!! I will answer more in February.
