What suggestions do you have for new bloggers?

            Try to be yourself and be original. Stay true to your brand and who you are. Be real. Be honest. Get creative with the content you are putting out there. Don’t be afraid to take a risk and put yourself out there even if the response is different from what you expect. Get uncomfortable over and over again. Stretch yourself. Ask questions, do your research. Learn from others, seek inspiration from others, but find your own voice. Don’t do it with making money as your number one goal or focus… partnerships and sponsors and making money should come organically as a result of the content and brand you put out there. If that is going to happen, it will naturally.

What platform do you use to blog?

            I have always and continue to use blogspot. There are plenty of other platforms out there as well, Wordpress comes to mind.

What workouts do you like to do? How do you stay motivated?

            I lift heavy weights on different parts of my body 3-4 days a week and do cardio at the end.   I do full-body/cardio workouts with some abs on the other 3 days.  I like to switch up my workouts as much as possible so my body doesn’t plateau and so I don’t get bored with my workout routines.  I get inspiration from many different places and it helps to have a workout buddy to keep me on track.

What’s your diet like?

            When I am not traveling I try to log my food so I can keep track of my macros.  Everyone is different but I’ve found that I see the best results when I eat a diet high in lean protein and veggies and drink a lot of water.  I love tracking macros because I can choose what I eat and still eat a few treats everyday!

What supplements do you take?

            Right now I take a pre-workout and then have a protein shake right after my workout.  I take a multi-vitamin and try and drink a BCAA everyday so I can stay hydrated and recover. 

How tall are you?


Do you offer any internships or mentoring?

            I’m not in the position where I need an intern at the moment and I am super busy so I can’t personally mentor anyone, I’m sorry!  But I will let you know if this ever changes!

Can I interview you for my class or paper?

            I would love to be able to have a conversation with you but I just don’t have enough time in the day right now to do that for everyone, I need time to spend with my babies! Please continue to inquire and if the timing is right then I will respond.

What camera and lenses do you use?

            Brody is my photographer and uses Canon 5D Mark III, GoPro Hero 5 and the iphone.  We use different lenses with the Canon depending on what we are shooting but our most used ones are: Canon 70-200 mm, Canon 17-40mm, Sigma 50 mm 1.4 art.

Who does your hair?  What products do you use?

            Haley Mears @haleymm does my hair and she can answer any coloring questions.  I’m constantly trying new products and share them on the blog as I do.

Who does your eyelashes?

            I see Kate Brown @lashesandtansbykate. 

What do you use for a tan?

            I usually get a spray tan from my sis @glowbymeg.  When I don’t get sprayed I  also use multiple “at home” products that I will continue to share with you on the blog.

I will try and keep this updated as I continue to receive questions. Thank you all for following!
