Today model/singer, Kayslee Collins is sharing all her tips for staying fit, sexy, & healthy! Not only is she a gorg Brandy Melville model, she’s absolutely delightful & adorable. I love her take on healthy eating- it’s right to the point: “eat small, healthy portions, often.”

Simple!!!

I hope that after reading this interview it’s clear that being fit isn’t rocket science!

Exercise, chug water, eat clean & you’re golden.

Ok, now lemme introduce you to this totally healthy, sun-kissed babe:

+ Introduce yourself.

I am a twenty two year old female from San Diego, CA. I am fortunate enough to have modeling as my profession. I sing & write music as well. Music is my passion, but modeling is something I will always love. I also adore the beach, yoga class, spending time with my family, & bubble baths. I like to go to bed early, & curl up to a nice inspirational book or a glass of wine. I have an obsession with zodiac signs & I absolutely love music. I live a beautiful life & I work very hard for it.

My career is very important to me! I’m very independent, with very few friends. Two of those friends are my older sisters, whom I’m extremely close to. I am coming out with a new single in May 2013 on my independent label I’m signed to. I hope to someday share my music with the world, & inspire. I try to live my life extremely positive! I live my life with passion, dedication, & I’m a firm believer of ‘you get what you give.’ : )

+ Quick skinny trick?

Stay hydrated! I always drink tons of water. Also eat small, healthy portions, often.

+ If you had to do a bikini shoot in a week, how would you prepare?

I would do my CorePower yoga class daily. I would also eat healthy, & cut out bread. I usually stay away from sweets too. Water, water, water! Always.

No wine…: (

+ Weekly workout schedule?

I take a heated yoga class ( Vinyasa flow) at least five times a week. I love it because the routine is always changing. So your body never knows what to expect. Usually the days I don’t make it to yoga I’ll go on a long hike!

+ Favorite go-to healthy food?

Greek yogurt, trail mix, bananas, & a chopped salad.

+ Motivation to stay in shape?

Obviously in the modeling industry you need to stay active and in shape. Eating healthy, & staying active makes me feel sexier. I am constantly putting on bikinis, and lingerie in front of a camera. I try to keep a steady routine so I always feel in control. I have also learned that exercise makes me happier & stress free!

+ Best beauty product?

I love Moroccanoil.

+ Natural beauty remedy? 

From what I’ve learned sleep is the best way to stay fresh, and healthy.

I try to get at least eight hours of sleep every single night.

+ Cocktail of choice?

I usually go with a glass of wine!

+ Secret model tip for diet and health?

I think water is really important. Also, find that exercise you personally love. Everyone is different! Go experiment & try different things.

Try to eat more greens, nuts, and fruits!

If you cheat one day…IT’S OKAY! Don’t beat yourself up.

+ Outfits you’re dying over?:

I have a few different sides to my style. But one thing I am pretty consistent with is staying comfortable, while still feeling sexy. I love to wear black with a great red lip. I also love a long boho dress with sandals in the summertime- I’m a beach girl from San Diego. Some of my favorites:

+ SILENT dress by Damir Doma

+ Topshop leather jacket

+ Kate Spade red lipstick

+ Free People long dress

+ Ted Baker jeans

+ Rag & Bone ankle booties

+ Marc by Marc Jacobs black bag

+ Nude blouse

As long as I am comfortable! : )

The Q & A Fairy– !!!

Lauryn Evarts, fitness blogger, skinny blogger, and fashion blogger talks diet tricks and tips for quick weight loss.

Oh hi.

I was not feelin’ so hot yesterday so I skipped yesterday’s post & gave myself some TLC : / !

Anyway since I can only respond to so many e-mails [ before I go nutso ] I figured I would answer some frequently asked quesies.

LMK if there’s more- – – just comment below & I’ll answer away.

+ What’s your health & fitness background?

Here’s my story. Ta da.

+ Tell me about a day of eating.

It changes on the reg. I love shocking my system- ya know, changing it up. Breakfast is usually a piece of sprouted raisin toast with berries [ I put the berries on the bread + a bit of butter ] & some tea. Snack is a banana. Then I have a cup of coffee with a splash of soy milk, cinnamon, & nutmeg. “Lunch” [ I say “lunch” because I don’t really eat three actual meals, I snack ] is cottage cheese with more berries & a salad or scrambled eggs with avocado, onions, & tomato slices. I usually have another snack like a protein shake or a fresh squeezed vegetable juice. I nibble on nuts, pineapple, a hard boiled egg, some light cheese, ‘0 calorie’ pasta + Rao’s sauce, &/or hummus w/ baby carrots. Dinner is a protein patty or Boca burger sans bun, maybe some wine, & a salad with protein. I usually stay away from meat though. Lots of water, water, & more water. But I also pick throughout the day. I’m a real picker ; ). Sometimes I pick at a some french fries/pasta/pizza, steal a few bites of dessert, or even eat a cranberry oatmeal cookie…GASP! Teeny, tiny portions work well for me throughout the day. I also modify everything.

+ What can I reach for when I’m having a sweet craving?

I’m obsessed with stuffing organic raspberries with dark chocolate chips ; ).

+ What makeup do you use?

I promise {!!!} a post on this is comin’ soonnnnnn.

+ How do I get rid of belly fat?

PILATES! It’s changed my life. Also fuel your bod with the healthiest foods possible & drink TONS of water [ I swear it works! ].

+ Do you count calories?

If I’ve had a particularly bad week, I use MyFitnessPal. But usually, no. For more info, click here.

+ Do you have extensions?

No. I don’t know where they would go- my hair is normally one big dreadlock!! LMAO.

+ Where do you shop?

Nasty Gal, Brandy Melville, the flea market, Forever 21, LF, vintage stores, eBay, Singer22, Revolve Clothing, & my boyfriend’s closet [ ha! ].

+ Can you send me the cleanse instructions?

E-mail me at Lauryn@TheSkinnyConfidential.com for cleanse deets.

+ I want to start a blog- any tips?

Be consistent with your posts, provide beautiful photos, & let your personality shine through.

Be yourself, everyone else is taken.

No one wants to read a blog by someone who’s not being authentic. Blog about what you’re passionate about too! I mean, I could talk about health & fitness for days; find what you love. Blogging is A LOT of work, but it’s well worth it. I’ve met amaze people through TSC.

+ Where can I buy a ‘Sweat Like a Sex Kitten’ tee?

You can purchase this shirt by clicking here. Obsessedddddd.
