The Skinny Confidential talks to Always Against the Grain.

Ummm…if Carolyn Pinson from Always Against the Grain isn’t babe town x a bill, then I don’t know what is.

She’s got rocking style & a badass, sexy blog. Naturally I was immediately drawn to her style because it’s not typical— the girl has her own look going on. Love it, right?! Different= cool in my book.

Ok, so kick back, grab a glass of vino, & enjoy Carolyn Pinson:

|| + Hi! Introduce yourself. ||

Carolyn Pinson: My name is Carolyn Pinson. I live in Columbus Ohio & I’m a personal style blogger. I have a great love for fashion, but also love to travel & work out! Staying fit and eating right is a very important part of my life.

I also enjoy walking in local fashion shows & currently I’m pursuing modeling for online shopping websites.

|| Lil skinny tip? ||

CP: Cut out carbs, no alcohol, &/or sugar, Sweat as much as possible & track calories with the Live Strong App on the iPhone.

|| Ok, so your bod is rocking…spill your weekly workout schedule! ||

CP: My weekly workout schedule consists of running three to four times per week & doing hot yoga at least four times per week at Harbor Yoga studio. The hot yoga is not your average yoga class. It can last up to an hour & half and the room is 95 degrees…it’s hardcore cardio yoga to upbeat music.

|| + Healthy food obsession? ||

CP: My favorite healthy go to food is kale! Love it! Kale salads, smoothies, and I even put it on my pizza ; ).

|| Cocktail pick? ||

CP: My cocktail of choice is usually a glass of Chardonnay. But If I’m going to slurge and have more than one drink I go for a vodka soda.

|| Can’t live without beauty product? ||

CP: My can’t live without beauty product is my Clarasonic face brush. I use it every morning and night. It helps with fine lines and wrinkles! Plus my face is 1000 x cleaner.

CP: Looking good for the camera is all about knowing what looks good on you & what works with your body. Also, the right lighting is key!

|| Favorite natural remedy? ||

CP: Every night before bed I use Emu Oil on my face. It’s 100% natural and has anti aging, moisturizing, & anti-inflammatory properties.

|| WTF in your handbag? ||

CP: My purse consists of Chapstick ( I’m obsessed ), an array of lip glosses, almonds, sunglasses, gum, & of course dark chocolate.

1.} Free People’s Matador hat

2.} The Stone Cold Fox Majismo pant

3.} Stone Cold Fox x Luv AJ belt

4.} Sheer tunic dress from Spell Designs

|| + Quick, lil recipe? ||

CP: My quick go to healthy recipe is Greek yogurt, with organic raw oats, organic dark chocolate chips, & a little bit of all natural almond butter— mix together & it seriously tastes like cookie dough. Yum!

Ok, so Erica & I had so much fun on this LuLu*s shoot it was kinda ridic.

The theme was: do what-the-F-ever. Examples? Dancing in the rain ( I know, right?! Rain in San Diego?! WTH ), braiding our hair together ( just because ), & popping some bubbly.

All in the Galentine’s spirit, right?

Get it? GALentine’s.

Valentine’s Day rocks my world— not just because of Michael ( although he’s a real plus ) but because of the colors, hearts, & pink champagne.

It also doesn’t hurt getting flowers, gifts ( hint, hint honey ), & getting wined and dined.
