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.

Mini DeLites: London

Found my camera card…!

So! London was our last adventure before we came back to the US. The Tower of London was really special because I have a weird obsession with prisons & was dying to see the prisoner’s historical stomping grounds. Of course, the The Crown Jewels sparked my interest as well. I mean, what girl doesn’t want to wear a 530 carat tiara? Another memorable destination? The Caviar House Oyster Bar @ Harrod’s. This was recommended by my friend, Simone, because of my love of oysters & pink champagne. London was a lovely way to end the trip; I can’t wait to go back!

Recommendations from my London experience: for shopping, Harrod’s is a one stop shop. The food is quite Americanized in London, so you can’t go wrong with fruit, nuts, oysters, eggs, pasta, veggies, grilled chicken, &/or champagne. We stayed at a boutique hotel, The Milestone, were they served afternoon green tea + cranberry-filled crumpets w/ the freshest blueberry jam [ << can we do this in the US on the reg?! ]. Best dining experience: Sale e Pepe- amazing salads, charming ambience, & delicious, crisp white wines.

+ Thank you to those who had fabulous travel recommendations/suggestions- definitely used them : )) ! X.

Lifestyles of the Fit & Fashionable, Jacqueline Nicole Brown

Lauryn Evarts talks with Jacqueline Brown about her new jewelry line JNB Jewelry & her quick skinny tips & tricks.

Lauryn Evarts talks with Jacqueline Brown about her new jewelry line JNB Jewelry & her quick skinny tips & tricks.
So excited to introduce you all to my GF, Jacqueline Nicole. This business savvy lady owns the avant-garde, chic jewelry line, JNB jewelry [ << which I die over! ]. Between running her own company, designing jewelry, &  dealing with major celebs, this skinnista manages to eat healthy & stay fit. I totally admire her ambition/style/eye for design; she’s the full package! Cha, cha, check her out:

+ Introduce yourself, Miss JNB:

My name is Jackie Brown. I am a designer & fashionista!

+ Tell us about your amazing jewelry line!!!

“Amazing”— I love to hear that from a showstopper women like yourself!!! My line is for the sexy, classy, confident powerhouse woman who is also a playful, bohemia fashionista. I am known for my “Arm Candy” named after my sister, Candace. Arm Candy is a way to dress up your arms in a playful classy way that adds style/flirt to every outfit. I came up with the phrase “Arm Candy” years ago while Candace aka Candy & I were designing & she had all these amazing delicate pieces on her arm; they looked so yummy! Soon after I had Selena Gomez, Demi LoVato, Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, Amber Stevens & many, many more celebs all addicted to my Arm Candy. Now it is a term used often, but obviously we do it the best here at JNB!!!

+ Quick, skinny tip?

Stop obsessing over food & calories- eat when you’re hungry. Enjoy it!

+ If you’re going to flaunt it, what body part is most flattering in a LBD?

LBD’s are my favorite…maybe that’s because I am single & sassy!!!!!!!! I would say the best way to wear an LBD is short, tight, & sexy. Depending on the occasion, the best body part to show off would be your legs! You have to leave a little to the imagination. Show your curves & legs, but keep it mysterious/classy by adding the long sleeve.

+ Go-to piece for the spring to the summer season?

My spring to summer transition piece would be a long boho skirt. It’s great with a tank, a crop top, or a lil knit. I am also majorly obsessed with hats right now! A long skirt & a floppy hat has been my go to outfit for this transitional season.

+ Favorite trends this season?

Staying present in fashion & not being dated is very important. However, trend or no trend- if you like it, work it. I hope color blocking remains current for a long time! I really love it! Even color block your itty bitty bikini for summer time.

+ Natural beauty product you swear by?

Milk as a cleanser for your face a couple times a week. It will make your skin glow!

+ Most form-flattering clothing pieces?

From my experience in the industry and seeing the most beautiful clothing/women in the world, I am going to say the most flattering of all is a women with confidence & knowing who she is. No clothing piece compares.

Favorite healthy snack?

My fave snack is a natural peanut butter & honey sandwiches on multi-grain bread.

+ Cocktail of choice?

I don’t really drink but if I do, it depends on the occasion. On dinner dates I have a glass of wine. Hitting the town & working my LBD I prefer it simple, think Jack & Coke or tequila Sprite.

+ Best online shopping?

Singer22.com, Shopbop.com, & RevolveClothing.com.

+ Besides black [ << duh ], what’s the most slimming color?

As long as you are wearing a solid same color top & bottoms you’ll appear slimmer. Dressing in all one color is the quickest slimming trick, other than wearing all-black.

+ Spanx or no Spanx?

I have actually never worn Spanx, eeeek! I have heard great things about them! I love spandex. I grew up playing volleyball so I love to work out in them!

+ Outfit you’re loving?

Outfit I am OBSESSSSSSSING over is my suede crop top with high wasted shorts by Again. I cannot get enough of this outfit with my hat. I am just obsessed with this look!

+ Show us five summer essentials: 

1.}  A Mint Straw Hats: they add major style, while protecting your face from the sun.

2.}  A Gyspy 05 Tiger Hi Lo Skirt: this skirt is a lil dime piece.

3.} Itty-bitty bikinis by Victoria’s Secret: VS has the best fitting tops for me & they’re just so sexy!

4.} True Religion denim short shorts: I live in my cut off’s all summer long.

5.} JNB jewelry: I have to have a beautiful cocktail ring with tons of bracelets to complete my summer time style!

+ Stay tuned for a JNB jewelry giveaway with The Skinny Confidential!
