I sell my stuff at crossroads, do giveaways, send some to friends and family, and on IG. It piles up fast so I have to stay on top of it!

Where do you keep all your kid’s stuff?

Baskets in the family room and Lego’s in our garage

Do your kids fight? is that a stupid question? And what is your favorite trick to averting the fights. I’m so over it.

I charge them $5, and I say, if you have nothing nice to say, don’t say it. Separation is key and sometimes I have them write down Proverbs 16:24 “Pleasant words are as a honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.”

How do you take the walking pictures in the middle of the street?

We wait till the cars pass, it’s usually not too crazy on the weekends!

How do you make your energy balls?

I’ll admit I’m addicted and I don’t even freeze them anymore. I eat them raw not frozen. Blend in a cuisanart 1 cup whole oats and 3 T dark chocolate chunks. Add to that 1/2 cup honey, 2 t. cinnamon and 1/2 cup almond butter. Freeze for 30min if you have the will power. More than I do.

What is the brand of collagen you use?

Vital Proteins collagen powder. I’ve been almost using it for a year. It’s been so good for my hair and nails.

If you could get one Nuface device which would it be?

Oh that’s hard! The Mini and Trinity are my top 2. The mini is great for a smaller travel friendly option and trinity has the attachments to target specific areas like wrinkles with the red light and two prongs to target lip and laugh lines. Stay tuned for a friends and family sale!

Are Golden Goose sneakers ever on sale?

Yes! occasionally! See below.

I don’t wanna pay full price, any good designer sales?

Whats that workout ring you use while sitting?

Its called a pilates ring and I use it to strengthen my thigh muscles. Actually, it can be used to strengthen almost every area of your body. it helps you isolate specific muscles you want to work on. Plus, it’s hardly an investment at $10 and up.

How old are you?


We know you love Chipotle. What is your usual order there?

I usually order a veggie bowl, white rice, pinto beans, cilantro on top, green salsa, cheese and guacamole. I squeeze a lemon on top. That’s it! I craved them so much when pregnant with Levi.

What shampoo/conditioner do you use and what was that treatment you called your “mom-hack?”

The treatment is called a “keratin treatment” I do it every 6 months or so and it straightens my hair with simply blow drying. I switched from Cavier (which I still love but just ran out of) to Amika. I use THIS detangling primer and THIS shampoo for my color. I have to ask my hair guy, Tim usually if he approves of what I’m trying. He’s really strict, lol, but he has brought my hair from blonde and broken to the longest and strongest its ever been!

What do you put into your coffee?

Vital Proteins Collagen powder. I write more about my routine here.

Who’s your inspiration?

Coco Chanel, Audrey Hepburn, Sienna Miller! Often, I get the most inspiration when I get off Instagram and go onto Pinterest and break out old french Vogue magazines I used to hide under my bed.

Favorite Make-up products?

I’m loving RMS concealereyelash curler, Nuface FIX I use under my eyes before make-up,

What belly band did you use when you were pregnant with Levi?

I bought the bella band in black and white and it was a  LIFESAVER. It’s on sale for under ten dollars right now.

How do you manage the blog and your family

I’d be lying if I said it is easy. Some days I spend more time on the blog, others at events and shoots. My job and family life has seasons of business and not as busy. I try and balance as much as I can but not everything is a hard cut balance and some days I put work aside and take my kids to the park. I try not to be guilty either way, because God knows my heart and my desire to be a godly wife and mother.

What is your fab 4 smoothie?

I wrote all about it here.

Do you do botox?

No, but I use the Nuface Fix for fine lines and wrinkles

That’s it for now. Let me know if I missed anyone’s question below or email me: shalice@shalicenoel.com.
