Happpyyyyy Friday! Welcome to our first edition of #coffeetalk! We’ve rounded up this week’s questions for you below, hope you enjoy! Please let us know what questions you have for next week in the comments (or you can always shoot us an email – firstname.lastname@example.org)!
1. What cameras do you each use? How do you edit your photos for the blog & instagram?
Brooke: I use a Canon7D with a 50mm lens.
Meggan: Canon 6D with a 50 mm lens.
*We will be sharing a post all about our photo process soon (what filters we use, etc)
2. Diet/fitness tips?
We shared a “day in the life” of our diet recently, you can see that post here. As a recap, we try to eat healthy 80% of the time, and allow ourselves to splurge 20% of the time (wine, macarons, donuts, candy, chips…you get the idea!). We are pretty bad about working out…we have the best intentions, but get off track easily. We’ve both committed to doing the 12-week BBG by Kayla Itsines together, and we will definitely be sharing our journey with you guys if you’re interested (let us know!). If you don’t know who Kayla is or what BBG is, look her up on instagram!
3. What hair products do you both use?
Brooke: I use Moroccanoil, this sea spray, this hair dryer, this round brush, and this curling wand. I love this texturizing spray + for hairspray I loooove Kenra, but currently use good ol’ Tresemme.
Meggan: I use this conditioner (leave in for 5 minutes) and it’s seriously amazing. Makes my hair super soft and strong, I can’t shower without it. And shampoos I switch off with Biolage and Fekkai. Also use this styling lotion, Moroccanoil and I use the same hairspray as Brooke. I’ve been playing around with dry shampoos but right now I’m currently using Dove which I like – it smells great!
*We are currently working on hair tutorials (top knot & how we curl our hair) for a separate post!
4. How do you “do it all” schedule-wise?
Spoiler alert: we definitely can’t do it all, and our instagram is simply a “highlight reel” of our lives – we have our good days and our bad days, just like everyone. We are currently working on a post about how we go about scheduling our days, so stay tuned for that one!
5. What pieces do you think are necessary to build a timeless wardrobe?
We love this “5 Piece French Wardrobe” checklist as a very basic guide for building a classic wardrobe. It’s very simple, but there are SO many different combos you can create from these pieces. You can always remove things that may not be exactly your style and add in a different basic (we would probably swap out the silk blouse and black suit coat for a little edgier items).
These are a few of our favorites from this checklist:
