In today’s post, I’m going to ask The Skinny Confidential, Lauryn Evarts, 10 quick questions, share her answers and let her explain them a little bit. I thought this would be fun since she’s an amazing beauty blogger, and we’re both really into skin care.
Lightning Round Questions
Q: Favorite healthy meal?
A: Eggs and avocado on GG crackers with a side of green salsa and an unsweetened iced tea.
This is my go-to right now. I go through stages where I become obsessed with things, and do it as a routine so I don’t have to think about it. With this, I get the fiber, I get the protein, I get the avocado. It changes all the time – sometimes it’s GG pizzas (liking GGs right now).
Q: Favorite NOT healthy meal?
A: In-N-Out, protein style with extra onions …and chips and salsa/guac, with a margherita.
Q: Most enjoyable workout?
A: Pilates or strength training.
I love pilates – I think it’s cool that you can lay down half of it and still get a workout in. Strength training gets the job done, and I get a lot of clarity and endorphins when I do it.
Q: Most effective workout?
A: Strength training.
I definitely see the most results with strength training, but I also like taking my phone on the treadmill and doing emails when I walk. Why would I be sitting on the couch returning emails when I can walk for an hour and get 5,000 steps in? I’m a big fan of counting my steps on the app, Pacer. I don’t think of it as a workout hour, I think of it as a work hour.
Q: Can’t-live-without hair product?
A: OUAI Rose Oil and my hair sunscreen.
This oil smells pretty, it’s light and adds a little shine. I spray my hair sunscreen on before I go (sunscreen everywhere!).
Q: Can’t-live-without item of clothing?
A: Definitely my husband’s jean jacket.
I always steal my husband’s clothes because sometimes you just want an off-the-shoulder, really baggy piece. You put it on with a tight bodysuit and jeans, and you’re good.
Q: Favorite cleanser?
A: Right now, it’s Dr. Lancer.
I just think Dr. Lancer really gets it when it comes to skin care. I also like Dr. Dennis products.
Q: Favorite sunscreen?
A: Caffeinated sunscreen.
…because it tightens – amazing.
Q: Hair down or in a ponytail?
A: Ponytail, always.
I feel like everyone’s go-to is hair down, and I think it takes a very CONFIDENT woman to rock a ponytail – pull your hair back, show your features off and rock what you got. It also gives you a face lift.
Q: Favorite anti-ageing remedy?
A: Facial massage.
This and oils – those together are gold for me.
Q: Favorite scent?
A: I love holiday in my house all year round …like Christmas.
My favorite scent is Christmas, but for a perfume, I really like Egyptian Musk Oil. It’s the same perfume that Caroline Kennedy wore, and is only $18. It’s a very masculine scent (not too fruity or girly), and I have a super masculine side of my personality, so it’s just right.
That was our lightning round! I’m really into scents … :)
