What White paint color do you REcommend? 

Alabaster by SW. I use it for everything. It's a soft warm white and has a great contrast to a stark white without turning too yellow or dull.

Β 

What camera do you use?

I use 3 different cameras for Instagram. I have my Nikon D610 for professional shots. I have a Sony A5100 for most of my Instagram shots (it has wifi so transferring photos to my phone is a cinch!). And I also throw in some iPhone pics, too! You can shop my gear:

How do you edit your photos? Do you use a preset?

I use Lightroom Mobile to edit my photos. I don't use anything fancy and I don't use presets (at least, not yet). I have VSCO presets for my Lightroom software on my computer but I typically save VSCO for portrait shots. 

Β 

How do you make money blogging?

I personally earn money through affiliate links (i.e. LiketoKnow.it) and sponsored content. However, I only take on sponsored content that I feel passionate about or if it's a product I already use and love. I do not apply for projects unless they pull on my heart strings. I typically have returning brands that want to work with me and I have a close relationship with them. 

Β 

What diet/Exercise plan are You on?

Quite the popular question! I have been promising a blog post on this but just haven't gotten the nerve to do it I guess! I have tried several different plans but the plan I always come back to and recommend is BBG by Kayla Itsines. I also don't do a specific diet most of the time. I try to stick to the 80/20 rule: 80% healthy, 20% not so healthy. 

How do you handle having white furniture with pets and kids?

I have slipcovered furniture that is machine-washable. We've had our shares of spills and stains and I don't know what I'd do without slipcovers! I am also someone who just chooses to let that sort of thing go - I don't worry about it too much!
