As you guys can see Kaitlynn Carter seriously beautiful.
Like, is this real life?!
Kaitlynn & I connected when my blog design company, blog-doo designed her life & style blog called Western Wild and we immediately clicked. After the launch of her blog we worked on a project for Van De Vort in San Diego ( remember this Halloween post? ). She’s sweet, nice, & approachable…plus she’s a total business woman! Obviously I liked her immediately. Ever since the shoot we’ve been planning a duo interview so I’m excited you guys finally get to meet her.
Oh, she also happens to be dating Brody Jenner & they kind of make the cutest couple in the world.
Kaitlynn also interviewed me on her blog!! See my whole interview here. Read on to find out about her vodka tip ; ):
+ Tell us about yourself & your work.
Kaitlynn Carter: I’m 26, and originally from New Hampshire. I spent several years working in the financial services industry before launching my new life and style blog, Western Wild. I love all things girly and I love to write ( I was an English/Journalism major in college ) so put it all together and it was time for me to have a blog : ).
I’m addicted to travel and music. It’s impossible for me to hold a grudge! This is pretty much everything there is to know about me! ; )
+ Quick skinny tips or tricks?
KC: SoulCycle! And I avoid alcohol leading up to any event where I want to look and feel my best. It causes bloating, redness, & puffiness— ew.
+ What is your weekly workout schedule?
KC: I don’t have one specific schedule, per se. I always try to be active in one way or another, whether it’s taking a yoga class ( Bikram is my favorite ), going hiking, playing with my dogs, or walking on the beach here in Malibu. I also just started going to SoulCycle classes and those are the BEST!!
+ What is your favorite go-to healthy food?
KC: There’s a Malibu health foods store called Vitamin Barn that makes a smoothie I drink almost daily. It has strawberry, coconut juice, ginger, flaxseed oil, acidophilus, protein, & glutamine in it! Sounds weird… tastes incredible!
+ Cocktail of choice?
KC: Gluten-free vodka— I keep Tito’s at the house– with soda and lime or bloody Mary mix, depending on the time of day. Gluten-free gives me much less of a hangover.
+ Can’t-live-without beauty product?
KC: Definitely Josie Maran Argan Oil.
+ Love life tips?
KC: Be with someone who makes you feel confident and secure in your relationship. And also, make sure the person you’re with feels confident and secure too!
+ Secret model beauty tip?
KC: Peter Thomas Roth’s Pumpkin Enzyme Exfoliating Mask. I use it twice a week and it keeps my skin soft and glowing. I also sleep with a hydrating mask on ( I like Korres’ Yoghurt Sleeping Facial ) to make sure my skin looks healthy and hydrated!
+ Natural beauty remedy that you do?
KC: I use coconut oil to moisturize my entire body when I get out of the shower.
+ When I wake up I…
KC: Make lemon tea with a little maple syrup in it to wake me up!
+ WTF’s in your purse?
+ Five fall pieces of clothing you’re loving:
+ Quick, easy (healthy) recipe?
KC: I don’t eat a lot of meat but I do love poached chicken because the chicken stays juicy and tender– it’s super easy to make and nice and healthy!
Place two organic chicken breasts at the bottom of a sauce pan. Cover in low-fat chicken broth or water and season the liquid with any herbs/seasoning you like. Bring to a boil and then simmer on low, covered for ten minutes. Let sit another ten minutes in the hot water. I like to serve it with wild rice and asparagus or green beans.
