Q & A with Sara

I haven't posted a lot this week because my brain is just mush.  I have been trying to plan my blogging calendar and get posts written in advance and scheduled so I can breathe a little, but coming up with new content is rough when your brain is mush.  

Since my brain has been mush, I have been browsing other blogs for inspiration and trying to generate some new ideas.  I have seen some pretty good posts lately, especially this one from Kemi over at Beauty Style Growth . As a matter of fact, I liked it so much, I decided to answer the questions myself.  It just goes to show that inspiration for blogging is, in fact, everywhere.

What are your favorite jeans?
I only own two pairs of jeans right now because of my closet purge.  I purchased these last month which I love, but I just got a new pair that I ordered from Maurice's that are quickly becoming my favorite.  You guys will have to wait to see those until I reveal my monthly budget.

How do you play up your eyes?
Eyeliner.  Remember when I talked about how I had recently figured out how to use eyeliner?  Yea-I should have been using it all along.  Eyeliner definitely makes my eyes stand out.  

I can sum up my music playlist in three words....
Spotify Phone App ;)

Who are you loving on Instagram?
Danielle from Goodwillista: This young lady right here loooves thrifting and showing us how she styles herself on the cheap.  She comes up with the cutest outfits!  She also blogs at Goodwillista.  I also bought a top from her and I can't wait to style it for you all! :)
Audrey from Putting Me Together: Audrey was one of the first style bloggers I started following and she is such an inspiration to me.  You guys seriously need to check out her blog, Putting Me Together.  Tons, I mean TONS, of fashion inspiration over there.  Easy on your wallet, too....
Marissa from The Modern Austen: I actually started following her blog because of it's title and I have never been disappointed.  Marissa covers a lot over at her blog so there is bound to be something for everyone.  She has style, she has writing, she has giveaway's....Go check her out-you won't be sorry!

What's your trick for getting out the door and still looking great?
Minimal make-up.  I'm talking foundation, blush, eyeliner, powder to set, lipgloss, and go.  That was what I did almost every day going to college (minus the eyeliner, but add in mascara).

How would you describe your style?
I call it put-together-casual.  I don't like anything too clingy or tight.  I love my jeans, maxi skirts, maxi dresses, cardigans, flats, loose fit t's (sometimes not so loose fit t's...depends on how I feel that day).  If I worked outside of the home, it may be different, but for now, that's what I like.  I believe in dressing for yourself, not what you think others want to see.  Life's too short to be boxed in.  

Well, that was fun!  I may have to do that more often!


  1. :) I knowww . . . I should get back to wearing eyeliner. :) Lovely post & blog. :)

    1. Thanks Holley! I use Avon Gimmersticks and it's the one I'm most comfortable with. It's not too sharp and it isn't so soft that it crumbles everywhere. It works great for this newbie! :) Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I need to start experimenting with eyeliner. I think it would make a difference, but so far I've been too nervous.

    1. I scoured Pinterest for months soaking up all the knowledge I could about wearing eyeliner. I finally got a good recommendation on what eyeliner to use (Avon Glimmersticks) and just used Pinterest tutorials the first few times to help me do it. I was always afraid it would make me look hooker-ish, that's why I had never worn it. However, now that I know how to actually line my eyes without making myself look like that-I feel much better about it! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Now that I work from home, I'm a t-shirt/jeans woman and couldn't be happier. I hated dressing for the corporate world when I worked outside of the home. Thanks for the shot outs to check out. I love finding new talent. And yes on the minimal makeup! It's the only way to go.

    1. I have to pry myself away from my yoga pants a lot-that's actually why I have started gearing my blog more towards style. It's a way to hold myself accountable. I like to be put together-it makes me feel better about myself. However, I will totally admit that there are days where baggy sweats are the only way to go. Ha! Thanks for stopping by Debbie!


I love hearing from you! Please leave me a comment and let me know you stopped by!
