My 5 Most Frequently Asked Questions

My 5 Most Frequently Asked QuestionsI thought I would answer 5 of my most frequently asked questions today. Most of them I have answered but they’re lost in a blog post somewhere so I thought I would put them in one post.

Here are 5 questions I get asked frequently: 

1. How tall are you? Obviously when I’m wearing a dress or a tunic and you’re thinking about purchasing it, it’s good to know my height. I’m 5’6″.

2. What color are your nails? This might be my #1 asked question! I wrote a post about how I get my nails done here.

I like a natural looking nail. I have short fingers and dark polish shortens your fingers so I save the dark polish for my toes. Dark polish can also accentuate aging hands.

Light polish elongates your hands. The rule is: if you want longer, younger looking hands go neutral.

I read a book for women over 40 a few years ago that said, “If you’re over 40, it’s best to avoid excessive glitter and nail art.” (This makes you look like you’re trying too hard to look young.)

Of course everyone has an opinion but I like a classic look and because my hands are aging I want them to look nice but I don’t want to draw attention to them.

3. Are you still “clean” eating? Yes. Several years ago, I changed my eating habits and I started eating healthier. I try to buy organic as much as possible. I am not 100% clean but I strive to eat as healthy as possible.

When I first started clean eating I was so strict that I was driving my husband crazy so I have relaxed and given myself grace. I eat as healthy as possible.

4. How do you style your hair and how is it cut? My hair is cut in a long bob (which is called a lob) with some layering throughout. 

I have a lot of bangs and they’re cut at an angle (I’m not saying to cut your bangs like this, I’m just telling you what I do). I blow dry my hair with a roll brush but I mainly style it with velcro rollers. I shared about that here.

  1. Super helpful. Thanks, Cyndi! I will sign up for liketoknowit! Also, regarding clean eating, I did the Whole30 with my daughter last Jan and lost 12 lbs. Although loosing weight was not the main reason we did it, we mostly began really thinking about what we’re eating and gained energy and health. Since then I’ve been “clean eating” and lost a total of 20 lbs since last Jan. 1. We plan to do the Whole30 again this Jan. to get back on track. It’s not easy but it def makes you think about what you’re eating and why. It gave me energy, I sleep better, my clothes fit better, I’ve increased my cycling miles, my skin looks better, etc. What we put in our bodies really does matter! Thanks, Cindy… happy Christmas!

    1. Thank you for sharing. I am going to try this! My daughter is Interested as well! Merry Christmas and a Great new year!

  2. I hope you feel much better real soon Cyndi! We never like to be sick, but during the busy holidays, it’s worse.

    Have a blessed day with some of the extended family!


  3. delighted to receive my email again today. not sure what needed to be done to get me back on track but I am grateful. especially liked the hair info re the bangs. as usual the beauty of the heart was GREAT..


  4. I would like to see your closet and hear about how you keep it organized. I love your posts and encouragement , Cyndi!

  5. Thanks for sharing, Cyndi! I didn’t know about liketoknowit, but I’m a signed up now! I too would love to know how you organize as that seems to be my battle right now. I hope you feel better and Merry Christmas to you and your lovely family!

  6. Love your postings:) You mentioned essential oils. Which do you use? Do you feel they “really” work? I bought one that is supposed to suppress appetite but I only used it once…it makes me smell like dill pickles!!!!! Another question: don’t you use Stitch Fix? If so, about how much do you spend monthly? Is it worth it? Thanks! Hope you don’t get sick. Have a very Merry & Blessed Christmas.

  7. That was a fun post. Thank you for sharing all those great tips and for sharing beauty from your heart all year. Merry Christmas to you and your family and looking forward to all you posts in 2016!

  8. Blessings to you and your family in the New Year Cyndi – and a very joyous Merry Christmas!!

    My daughter and I have been eating “clean” for quite a long time – before it became more popular, and also no processed foods, white sugar, flour, etc. We both have seen a remarkable difference over a number of years, so I personally can testify how good this can be for your overall health and well being – I grew up on a farm in the Dakota’s – not a fast food place anywhere to be seen 😉 – we grew what we ate, and someone’s mom or grandma did the cooking – from scratch. That’s all there was – if you wanted a burger, you made one, if you wanted a pizza, you made it, even in our small town cafe’s – home cooking. I really do believe this was the best for all of us.

    My favorite part of your site is your Beauty from the Heart – always find a verse or a word of encouragement to take along with me on my day!!! Thank you for sharing your kindness and your heart with us!!!

  9. Always enjoy your posts!! I am surprised no advent reflection 🙂 the last cople Sundays, the timing has been perfect for your reflections on Hope and Peace 🙂 God must be telling me to research the 3rd week myself:). Ok God…going to work!! Thank you soo much for your reflections !! Many blessings to you!!

  10. A question I have is what is the name of your the workout you do for your arms/upper body. You’ve mentioned it before on your blog, but I just don’t remember….

  11. I love your blog! Just came across this post when searching Pinterest for “bangs”. I have a medium layered bob and am contemplating adding bangs. Do you ever wear your hair wavy or curly?
