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.

|| Fashion blogger tip? ||

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.

|| Top five favorite outfits lately? ||

CP: My top 5 spring fashion pieces are:

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

5.} Isabel Marant sandals

|| + 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!

  1. Love her style so boho chic/grungy glam! Her recipe sounds amazing I wish I could have greek yoghurt my allergies have been acting up so no go on that 🙁 Lots of Love C

  2. That off-the-shoulder white dress is pretty out of control. I’d rock it anywhere and everywhere.

    Still, giving up grains is something I’m not prepared to do. I eat a ton of Japanese food/always have a pot of brown rice in my kitchen. Thanks for the post!

  3. Such a fan of both of your blogs and so happy to see a fellow Columbus blogger featured here! Congrats Carolyn! You both are healthy and fun living inspiration!
