Q x A Sesh

The Skinny Confidential talks diet, fitness, and health.{ Wearing my absolute fav workout top found here }

Hey guys,

It bugs the hell outta me when big bloggers don’t do their diligence & answer readers questions. I mean, right? Because what’s a big shot blog without readers?

Anyway once & while I try to post some of your questions with the real deal answers. LMK if anyone has any other questions below & I’ll get to them in the next Q x A installment.

Zo asked: Hey hey,
Got any tips on saying no to food/ someone’s cooking without offending them? I find it so hard to say no to people because i’m scared they’ll think i’m being rude! Especially when they’ve gone to a lot of effort.
Thanksss.

Hi! I actually wrote two post on this. The posts can be found here & here. Don’t eat like shit because people are making you feel bad for your healthy habits. What people think about you is none of your business. Say you have dietary restrictions ( LOL ). A tiny, little healthy white lie never hurt a flea. X.

Megan asked: First of all I love your Q&As keep them coming please!! Also, I was wondering how your organize/store your jewelry? Do you recommend a cute organizer or have an ideas??

Eek! I feel a post idea brewing. I def need to get jewelry organization tips up on the site. Since I’m an OCD freak, any type of organizer are my BFF. These are the three organizers I use for rings/bracelets/etc: this one, this one, & this one.

Elise asked: Love these posts! I have a question also, how far in advanced do you plan out your posts?

I’m always late. Late to bed, late to coffee ( I drink it around noon ), late to dinner, late to dates…it’s bad, bad, bad but hey, I’m a work in progress. Anyway when it comes to blogging I’m no different. I’m not one of those gnarly bloggers that does their posts the week before. When the inspiration hits, I blog. So a big post will likely be done the day before ( if I’m lucky ), occasionally the day it goes live! : )

Sarah asked: Hi Lauryn! What are some of your favorite cookbooks? I love your creative recipes!

My absolute favorite cookbooks are Kimberly Snyder “Beauty Detox” & Bethenny Frankel’s “The Skinny Rules.” Typically, I make up my own recipes because it’s a fun way to get creative!

Lamesha asked: I have a question. I just moved to San Diego from Seattle. I’m confused as to what to wear right now. Technically it’s nearly winter but the weather is kinda warm. Can I wear vampy lips and black in a beach town? Help.

Ok so this tricky because a lot of people wear flip flops, jeans, & a tee…or Lululemon every second of every day. I try to mix it up. I wear other chic fitness brands like Splits59 or Zella if I’m sweating. If I’m going out at night I absolutely refuse to wear tight, short dress with platforms ( yawn! ). Instead I’ll opt for a long maxi, black jeans & a sexy off the shoulder tee, bell bottoms, or vintage pieces. San Diego style bores me a bit to be honest. I try to go completely opposite!! I hope that helps. xx.

Lauryn-Evarts Zella 1Working out in Zella is perfection because it’s cute, comfy, & practical. Plus their colors are dynamite & different than any other brand.

My crush on Zella started when I bought their leggings a year ago when Weslie from Love Chugs recommended them.

I mean…I’m such a legging-whore that it’s honestly kinda pathetic. Like, I know my freaking leggings, people.

So I can say with the upmost confidence that they’re seriously, without a doubt, my absolute favorite clothing piece I own ( remember them here too? )

Ok let’s get down to business…

This neon shirt though.

When I put on this lil, hot pink number ( I wore it backwards… on purpose ), I fell even deeper in love with Zella.

It’s everything. It’s flirty, girly, cool, & workout-y.

My favorite part though?

After taking a barre class yesterday in this get-up, I ran twenty errands because I felt kinda cute & wanted to show it off.

Because feeling cute in workout clothes is like, seriously the best thing ever.

EVER. Right?!
