It’s been a while since I have put together a Q&A. The other week I put a question box up on Instagram and decided to put them all here so there’s a place for you to reference back to. Life has been busy so this is a great way to check in with you!
Are you still running? Do you workout regularly?
I’m not running right now- but Spring is nearly here and warm weather always brings out a better me. 🙂 I did recently join a Pilates studio and it’s been incredible. It’s such a hard class, but in all of the great toning and strengthening ways.
Do you have time to relax? What do you do to unwind and self care?
I don’t. That’s the truth right now. I do take long showers and I get my nails done every three weeks. I get my lashes done now too. But my lack of self care is why Soren booked us a trip to Hawaii for Spring Break. Mission- get Kilee a vacay.
Do you color your own hair?
I do! I color my own roots. I’ve been doing it for years. I use a 3N semi-permanent color. It saves a lot of time to just dye them at home.
Are you growing your hair out?
I’m not right now. I am still trying to figure out my next hairstyle- for now I’m just maintaining.
Is your haircut low maintenance and easy to style when in a rush?
Yes! I’ve had short hair for years so I’ve learned how to make it work for me, but it’s really easy to just throw in dry shampoo, tease it and use a flat iron on a few loose ends. I’ve just got a few things that I can do with it and I think that actually makes it easier.
What face wash and face lotions do you use?
I’m currently using a mix of Tarte products and R+ F. I love both lines.
I love your orange lipstick. Where can I find it?
I love mixing colors- but this one tube is a pretty good representation of the best orange/red!
What eye pallet have you been using?
I love one from Smashbox and another from Tarte. I alternate using them. I’ll link them below.
What do you use to whiten your teeth?
I use Crest Whitestrips every few weeks. I’ve used every product out there though- I’ve been a sucker for teeth whitening products since high school.
How tall are you?
What are your current favorite skinny jeans?
What do you consider to be the best pieces to invest in?
I’m big in investing in great denim and in shoes. I will spend a lot on a pair of jeans because the fit, fabric and quality on a pair of jeans that is an investment is SO MUCH BETTER than what you get for just buying any old pair. Like your confidence can be built on a great pair of jeans. It’s that worth it. You will wear them so many times and feel like a million bucks.
Shoes can be the same way. I invest in really nice shoes- but I also buy a lot of shoes. I think a great pair of espadrilles, white leather sneakers, and Birkenstocks are worth investing in for Spring and Summer.
One other item for me recently has been blazers. Now that I know which blazers I love and fit me well, I invest in them because they are confidence promoters.
It boils down to investing in items that will make you feel more confident which will then help you be more you!
What trends are you the most excited about for Spring?
I’m always excited about espadrilles, stripes and miliary jackets. I’m also loving coral/melon colors, pastel lime, long shorts, coordinating sets, women’s suiting, white lace tops, hats and more.
Do you wear the v neck or crew neck Hanes tees?
I wear the Hanes v neck tees
How do you stay sane with people trying to copy Nickel and Suede styles?
It’s been a learning experience. Someone will always copy a good idea- but I only lose when I get distracted by it and forget my purpose. I love creating, empowering women and moving forward. I focus on the joy I get from creating and feel bad that they miss out on that. Worrying about copiers is more often than not looking back. We’ll have a future if I can keep moving forward.
If you had to pick one pair of earrings, which would they be?
