Q & A + a Giveaway

Happy Saturday ladies! As promised, I’m going to answer your burning questions. Haha! Thank you for commenting yesterday and most of the questions you asked are the ones I get quite often. Make sure you read to the end for the giveaway!

1. Several of you asked about this stripe shirt I was wearing. I received it several months ago in my Stitch Fix box. It was cool in Kentucky the day I was flying home so this was a perfect top to wear. The brand is ReneeC.

2. Where did I get the necklace in this picture?? I typically wear pieces that I can link to but on this day I wore a necklace that was given to me as gift from my cousin. She purchased it at a boutique here in Lexington but it was last year. Sorry about that!

3. What nail polish and toe polish do you wear? I wrote a post about how I do my nails here. The lady who does my nails is a friend and she works from her home. It’s quiet and peaceful and we talk about family and Jesus and everything in between. I love her! She puts acrylic on my nails.

She also paints my toes and I use OPI Alpine Snow. I hope white polish doesn’t go out of style! I don’t like switching polish and I like that I can wear white all spring and summer and it matches everything. I like simple and easy.

You can see I’m a fan of neutrals on my hands and feet!

4. Let’s talk undergarments. I had to laugh when you all asked what bra I was wearing with this halter because I just tucked my bra straps in my bra. Ha!! Just for the picture. I will wear a strapless bra with this halter top.

Strapless bra-this is the most comfortable strapless bra I have ever worn. It stays put and I will wear it all day. Usually be the end of the day I’m ready to take it off but that’s typical of any bra I’m wearing.

T-Back (razorback) bra-I wear a lot of sleeveless dress and tops in the summer and I don’t like my straps showing. This bra works great! I wear it all the time.

Everyday Bra-this is a great everyday bra and I wear it a lot too.

Bonus, my favorite undies-these are so comfortable!!

Make sure you check the sizing on the bras because I think some of them run a little different. I typically order two different sizes and then send back the one that doesn’t work.

5. Exercise and clean eating-Okay, many of you know that I am passionate about staying healthy. It’s not easy and I have tried several different exercise programs.

I have been clean eating (not everything I eat but I try my best) for several years. I love the Skinny Taste blog for recipe ideas. Sometimes I order the box services and then I will quit for a while. I don’t like to cook so I keep it very simple, 1 Meat and 2 vegetables.

I have cut out most bread, dairy, and I don’t eat a lot of sugar. I still enjoy my sweets but I don’t over do it.

Right now I’m doing the Faster Way To Fat Loss Bootcamp. I LOVE IT! Many of you are joining me on this round that starts on Monday and I can’t wait!

It’s not easy but it’s doable. We workout 5 times a week and use weights which is what I was lacking in my previous workouts. There will be another round beginning May 22nd so I’ll be sharing more information for those of you who are interested.

I feel better and have more energy. Amanda Tress is our trainer and she is so encouraging and is passionate about helping women feel better.

6. Do I use self tanner on my face? No. I use it CC Cream in tan. But my secret to having a sun kissed look on my face is I use BareMinerals BareSkin Sheer Sun Serum Bronzer. I love this stuff! I add one drop to my cc cream and mix it up and add it to my face with a foundation brush.

7. What skincare do I use? Okay, I am one of those people who LOVE  to change my skincare and try new products. I recently tried the Drunken Elephant skincare line and I really like it.

I use this JuJu Bar in the shower on my face every morning. I use this over the counter Retin A  (this stuff is amazing and fades my age spots on my face) 4 to 5 times a week at night and the JuJu Bar removes in any dead skin from my face.

I also love Colleen Rothschild skincare and I use it all the time. Her cleansing balm is soooo good!! My second favorite cleansing balm is Bye Bye Makeup and it is less expensive.

I get asked about my skin a lot (always surprises me) but I think part of having healthy skin is taking care of your over all health. I drink lots of water, don’t smoke, I use sun screen, never go to a tanning bed, yada yada yada.

8. What do you use under your eyes for dark circles? I definitely have dark circles! I use this eye cream every morning and night.

To cover my dark circles I use Bobbi Brown corrector first. Then I use Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer and/or Nars Concealer. Depending on the day sometimes I use one or some days I use both.

9. How do you keep your makeup from sweating off?  I use CoverFx Illuminating Setting Spray. Love. this. stuff!

10. Do you get a lot of free clothes? Are you compensated? How much time do you spend on your blog?

Okay I am ALWAYS up front that this blog is my business and my income. I do get a large amount of free clothes but I’m also compensated for writing about the clothes. Free clothes or products don’t pay the bills.

When I first started blogging I loved getting free products but as my business has grown I am not able to accept product to share on my blog without being compensated. I will sometimes share about free products on my Facebook or Instastories on Instagram.

I spend a huge amount of time on my blog. I have a home office and I work regular hours at home just like I were going to work everyday. I’m sure at times this seems easy but there is so much work that goes into my business. I have deadlines that have to be met. When I work with a company they not only want a post written but they want it to be shared on all my social media.

Let me be clear about this. I get offered a ton of product and compensation that I turn down because it doesn’t fit with my brand or I don’t like it. I am always thinking about you, my readers, and I only share with you what I love! I feel like I have built a trust with you and I don’t take that lightly. If it is on my blog it’s because I love it.

Whew!! If you are still reading I feel like you deserve a trophy or something!! Haha!! I hope you know how honored I am that you stop by my blog. I am beyond blessed to be able to work at a job I love and I get to meet so many amazing women.

Just as a way of saying thank you I am giving away a $100 gift card to LOFT for one Grace & Beauty reader!

Beauty for the Heart~~I have gotten a lot of questions about our new journey. My husband recently resigned from his current position as senior pastor. In case you are new around here, I shared about our new journey here.

Thank you all for asking! We are both doing great. We are confident in our decision and believe that God has a plan. We are excited about whatever God wants us to do. You will be seeing a little more of Mr. Spivey here on the blog. Both in styling and sharing about faith. Videos are hopefully coming soon.

He is doing some preaching and will be preaching this Sunday. We are both passionate about sharing Christ and loving people!

Have a blessed day!

  7. My favorite spring trend is the lace-up block heel sandals. So many cute choices. Did you notice that your “favorite undies” suggest hand washing? Yikes!

  15. Even if I don’t have time to read your blog I always read beauty for the heart, it is quite often exactly what I need that day! Love you!

  16. I love the block heels! Since I am older (60’s) I look more to comfort in shoes, but still want to be feminine and the block heels provide this for me

  17. I really like the cold shoulder trend , they are cute yet cover the not so cute part of my arms ! Thank you for sharing with us !

  18. Some of the trends I’m not a fan of. I like them on others but prefer a tailored look for myself. I always like to see what you are styling tho.

  19. First, I love your blog and look forward to it everyday. My favorite fashion trend for spring are the tops with open shoulders. I like covering my arms but having the openness above. All the best.

  23. Thank you Cyndie- I always enjoy your blog & fashion tips. I have found some great skin/makeup products from your reviews that I normally would not have tried.

  24. Even though the Differin Gel is named Acne Treatment, it fades age spots, correct? I’m not a youngster and am interested in this product for age spots and rejuvenation.

  25. Looking forward to getting more information on the bootcamp. Thank you for sharing your journey with us. I loved seeing all of the juices on Instastories.

  26. All the feminine details on the blouses and dresses. Thank you for your blog. Between you and Jolynne I feel i have my own personal shoppers.

  27. I finally bought a cold shoulder top, thanks to you, Cyndi! I love it. I also bought a ruffle sleeve tee that’s super cute. I don’t generally like ruffles, and I thought this tee would be too cutesy but it looks cute on me.I also love all the florals. I really can’t think of a trend this season that I don’t like! Thanks for all your hard work. I love your blog and have learned so much. Blessings on you and your husband!

  28. Loving the cold shoulder trend. It works well with my body type and there is a great assortment of colors and styles available!

  29. I love the ruffles and feminine details this spring! Love your blog! Thanks for keeping me up to date in fashion.

  30. I tried to enter a post but it wouldn’t let me above. So, I am commenting here. I am so inspired by your fashion. I started wearing skinny jeans. I now have 4 pair. I have fallen in love with the long tunic top, too.

    1. I had the same problem posting! Thank you Cyndi for taking so much time to share all of this with us. You answered several questions I’ve had, but never asked. You say you are blessed to have us as your readers, but let me say YOU are a beautiful blessing to us! May God continue to bless you in your business and ministry.

  31. Love your blog and always look forward to your daily comments which I read with breakfast.
    So generous of you to offer a gift from the Loft.
    I would love to win this!!

  32. I love the way you always look so put together. It has inspired me to think outside the box and try a few different tops and shoes that I would have passed by. I bought an beautiful easy dress that you showed for Easter and am very happy with the style and fit.

  33. I have been enjoying your blog, especially how you share your faith, for a couple of years. I like that you are down to earth and real, yet still keep up with the trends etc.

  34. Out of all the beauty and fashion advice the best advice you give is to love Jesus. That truly makes a woman beautiful.

  35. I’m loving the bell sleeves this spring. I just bought a cute top on vacation and (if the weather would ever turn nice here) I can’t wait to wear it!

  36. Thanks for answering all of our questions and more! My favorite style this spring would have to be the neck scarf trend. I have purchased several and am enjoying wearing them. Be blessed!

  37. Thank you for answering all those questions! I have been enjoying reading your blog for the last six months! I do love your fashion tips and your down to earth personality and Christian faith! You remind me a lot of my younger sister and I adore her!

  38. Thank you for your dedication to us as readers and to your faith. It show through beautifully and is a blessing to me. I look forward to your posts daily. God has great plans for you and your Mr. Just keep seeking His guidance and it will be revealed in His timing.

  39. I’m liking the open shoulder tops. Soo out of my comfort zone but I’m enjoying feeling pretty & wearing a current style. You are such an inspiration Cyndi. Not only because of your style expertise, but also the fact that God is such an important part in your life & you give all the glory to him.
    Thank you for all that you share.

  40. I have to admit I do not like the cold shoulder trend for myself, but it really looks great on you. I’m still searching for “my style” and your blog helps considerably. Having spent the last 20 years raising my children and not having “real” job, I often feel lost and out of touch. I love that you really spell things out, right down to the undies! I also love that you care about the inside of your readers as much as the outside. Thank you

  41. I appreciate your modest and tasteful choices of clothing. As godly woman I believe we can be fashionable, thank you for demonstrating that. It is God who we honor, in all areas of our life including our choices in fashion
    I love Loft too!

  42. I enjoyed this post answering reader questions. Perhaps you can make it a regular monthly feature. It was interesting to read about the time you put into your blogging. I am responsible for social media posts for my department at a university, which also takes considerable time and effort. I’ve also thought about a fashion blog for university faculty members, but don’t know if I want to devote the time and effort, even though I really like fashion.

  43. Love your heart and posts. Look forward to them everyday. After recently leaving a career in ministry and losing 30 pounds (not related) I feel revived and ready for the new me. Loft has been my “go to” for my new wardrobe. Thanks for always sharing from your heart.

  44. Love the cold shoulder tops but have yet to try one. I also love the block heels. They are perfect. Thanks for always sharing your style with us and especially about your faith.

  45. Thanks for all the great info and for the chance to win the Loft card. I appreciate your blog which not only help women look and feel beautiful but shares the good news of Jesus Christ.

  46. I have been a daily reader for a couple of years now. I have commented many times how I enjoy your fashion as well as your inspirational quotes, scriptures and videos. I appreciate all your time and effort you put into this blog. It is definitely obvious that you enjoy your job. Your research, trial and error and experience has helped me in making my own fashion and beauty decisions. I am looking forward to more of what you have planned. ~Lisa~

  47. Thank you so much for sharing your life with us. I am loving the ruffles and bell sleeves this spring. It takes me a while to get used to any fashion trend. I truly believe reading your blog encourages me to try new trends sooner as opposed to waiting until it is too late or not at all. Thank you again. You are much appreciated!

  48. Thank you so much for this informative post! I only started following fashion blogs 1.5 years ago, and one of my very favorite things about your blog, and other blogs like Jolynne’s and Onthedailyexpress, are that y’all take the time to share your “secrets” – the things we women only learn through trial and error. So many of us are on a tight budget, and it is such a gift to be able to benefit from your wisdom and experience before investing in a good strapless bra, a good beauty product, etc. It is such a great feeling to have your honest opinion, photos, etc., before biting the bullet and investing in these kinds of things. So thank you so much for taking the time to put together a post like this. I think my favorite fashion trend for spring is florals, but I also LOVE espadrilles, and am intrigued by all the variations on the classic espadrille that I am seeing this spring. Thanks again, Cyndi!

  49. I’m loving the colors for spring! I love bright, florals, etc. so this spring is just making me smile! 🙂 Thank you for your blog. It’s nice to find a faith based blog with “classy” looks for women my age. Your blog is wonderful!

  50. Thank you Cyndi!! You are a blessing to me. I look forward to hearing more about where our Lord is leading you and your husband!

  51. I love your blog and look forward to reading it everyday. I love that you include Beauty from the Heart. It’s inspirational to me. Thank you for sharing your world and faith with us.

  52. I love your blog! All of the fun, feminine tops are my favorite this Spring. I’m loving the ruffles and bell sleeves!

  53. I’m loving all the cold-shoulder styles that are out right now. I really love those espradille sandals!
    I’m taking a trip to France & Italy in June and have been scouring blogs ( yours is at the top of my list) and travel sites for simple, stylish and comfortable neutrals. A wedge will be perfect for the cobbled streets in Italy. 😉 I’m pretty clumsy! Thanks for sharing your love of all things fashion & Jesus!

  54. I have been enjoying your blog since the beginning, I have discovered many new products and also added some new favorites to my closet based on your recommendations. I’m really liking the cold shoulder trend, I have a feeling this will be my next clothing item purchase.

  55. Your blog is my favorite source of fashion inspiration. More importantly, the Beauty for the Heart section turns my attention back where it belongs and reminds me to not become obsessed with the superficial, but remain focused on Him. Thank you for being so bold with your faith!

  56. Thanks for all your great hints/links! I love looking at your shoes, and really like the ankle straps this season.

  57. Thanks for inspiring me to be the best me that Jesus made. I have a hard time matching but you have helped me (well stitch fix too!),

  58. I’ve recently turned 60 (!) and I’m not sure what my style is anymore. I don’t want to dress like a teenager and look ridiculous, but I’m certainly not ready to go the other way and look older than I am. Your blog has been just great in showing outfits and clothes that are stylish but not crazy (if that makes sense).

  59. Thanks for sharing Cindy… I started following your outfits on Pinterest and that led me to your Grace and Beauty blog.. I’m so glad it did as I enjoy catching up with you and your style daily..( our styles are very similar so I look forward to what your wearing next). Your beauty truely shines inside and out!!!

  60. I love that your blog is so positive! I’m a Loft girl and have my eye on a few things 🙂 I’d love to win the gift card!

  61. Thanks for your blog. I love the cold shoulder trend this spring. Being a former Kentucky woman, it’s nice to be reminded how beautiful Kentucky is through the photography in your background.

  62. THANK YOU SO MUCHO, Cyndi for sharing so much with us! I feel like I know you, abd would enjoy a cup of tea with you while talking in that beautiful KY town of yours! I enjoy the background of the pictures you take, so I assume Lexington is beautiful.
    I love all that you style, make up, hair, and all. I also believe in taking care of the whole person not just target areas. Feeding the body the proper nutrition and exercise, and most important, feeding the soul, and I think this is all reflected on our appearance!
    I like Bare Minerals. Have been using them for 8yrs already. And the Loft is one of my favorite stores to shop in. I have downloaded the Nordstrom app, in hopes of buying from there some of the stuff you use!
    Have a most blessed weekend, sweet lady!

  63. I love that you share how to wear the newest trends….simple things like changing up accessories has made a difference in my style!

  64. Cyndi,
    Thanks for all you share with us. Your style, make-up, and beauty tips, and I love reading your Beauty for the Heart writings.

  69. I enjoy seeing the behind the scene info! You are an inspiration to try a bit harder on my fashion and dress up a bit more each and every day.

  70. Just love your blog love the clothes. You are the image of the Lord. Very transparent and real that’s what I love about you. Thank you for serving the Lord in this way. I’m sure the Lord has great things for you and your husband. He opens door no man can shut!!!! Love the open shoulder shirts.

  71. Great posting today! I love the feminine looking trends this season with the lace, ruffles , etc. As I am 70, I don’t wear much lace and ruffles, but I do love the florals and stripes! Love your blog and the inspirational things you share each day with us. God Bless you and your hubby as you wait on God to lead you!

  72. I really love the sandals you share-still trying to find just the right pair for the summer!

    FYI- the racerback bra link goes to the strapless bra from your other link. I’d really like to see the racerback bra you where, as I am needing one and not sure where to look! Thanks!

  73. I always look forward to reading your blog every day. AA lot of times your inspiration is just what I need for the day!

  74. I love your blog. Thanks for sharing so much with us. I’m a regular Glamour Farms shopper now. And I’m looking forward to the style challenge!

I love your Beauty from the Heart inspirational messages. I wish you and your husband all the best in your journey to honor God in all you do.

  76. I enjoyed this post! Thanks as always for your advice; i am still using cerave as a face cleansing product, but may have to switch it up w juju! My favorite trend is a peplum tank…i just wore one to an event and felt so feminine!! Many blessings and thank you!!

  77. Absolutely LOVE your blog. A friend recently turned me on to it, and I really look forward to your posts. Glamour Farms has been one of my favorite sites for the past year, and I enjoy it when you offer a discount code–I ordered a couple of things yesterday with your new code. Thank you! And thank you for the Christian aspect of your blog–that is my favorite part, and I am glad you so freely mention the name of Jesus! Have a Blessed day!

  78. Thank you for all that you share with us! It’s truly a blessing! My favorite spring trend is all the feminine details on tops, even on casual tops to wear with jeans.

  79. I see now that I commented without reading the prompt first! Yikes!
    I am loving the cold-shoulder trend–it bares a nice part of my arms, yet covers up “that part”, which I think needs to be covered up!
    Thank you!

  80. This actually wasn’t too much to read compared to some other blogs. While you usually are very informative and share great advice, you get to the point quickly, which is what I like about you. You put so much time and effort into the products and clothes that you share with us and it’s very much appreciated! It definitely is a full time job. Thanks so much! Btw, the green halter top with the patterned pants is all me! 😍

  81. Thank you for all the great styling ideas for those of us over 50! My favorite trend this season are all the great sandals & mules. I’m a flip flop gal, so loving a lot of these other great options!

  82. Wonderful post! Thank you so much for sharing with your readers. I have been following you for several months and I really look forward to your posts! Have a blessed day!

  83. I am new to your blog and have really enjoyed it. Found you on Pinterest and have shared with lots of friends. I think you are “cute as a button”. It is especially encouraging to me that your beauty comes from the love of Christ which is “more precious than silver…more costly than gold”!!!

  84. Thank you for your blog. I appreciate your honesty, style and commitment to Jesus! Wedge sandals are the bomb,

  85. You ROCK every outfit. I’m just curious, how tall are you?
    I’m petite, and some things just aren’t the right proportion to my body.

  86. Thanks, Cindy for all the information. It can be so hard choosing new makeup routines if you do not know anything about the products. Keep up the wonderful work and all the photos that go along with the work.

  87. Cyndi , Thank you for all the answers , I guess you don’t mind that a lot of us are having your hairstyle , makeup , nails etc… Lol, I have been following you and Jo -Lynne since last fall and I see how much work you do to get us all the information and pictures on the clothes and accessories on the blog , I also love how you share you life with us .l feel like we are best friends ,is that weird. I hope one day if you make it to N.C. , I might get to meet the person that has helped me be a better person spiritually and fashionably . My favorite trend this spring has been the bell sleeves and all the great wedge sandals,
    Thank you again for all of your hard work !!!!
    Have a blessed weekend !!!

  88. Thanks Cyndi for sharing these questions and answers. I have been reading your blog about 2 years now. It is something I enjoy and look forward to reading. I genuinely appreciate your style and the fashion info. you share. I also appreciate your heart for the Lord, and emphasizing beauty within.

  89. I don’t really know what my favorite fashiontrend is this Spring, but I do enjoy seeing what you’re wearing. I did order the Michael Knor striped dress you posted the other day, can’t wait to get it. I’m going to the South of France this summer with my husband for work (I know, he has the best job ever and I’m a lucky girl that gets to go) this summer and I think it will be perfect.

  90. My favorite trend this Spring is cold shoulder combined with ruffles. 😊 Just ordered the pink one from Glamor Farms.

  91. Always love reading your posts. I am older than you and somewhat larger but can still pick up tips that help.


  93. Hi Cyndi! You are such an encouragement to me in so many ways. I have enjoyed branching out a little more in fashion and I love how it makes me feel more attractive. I also appreciate how your love of Jesus shines through your everyday living. I also love your style and look forward to reading your blog everyday!

  94. I am loving white eyelet blouses and ankle strap sandals this spring! Also all of the blush colors! Everything seems updated and fresh!

  95. I’m really enjoying your blog. I learned about it from one of my students whose mother reads it. Now I’m hooked, too!

  96. What a great post!! So glad you shared! My favorite spring fashion includes strappy sandals and all the cute lace up sandals. Love your style and your posts.

  97. I love the question & answers post. You are so genuine and sincere and I appreciate that so much. One trend I’m liking a lot this spring is the one shoulder top. I am 49 and feel more at ease in a one shoulder than off the shoulder. Thanks so much for this opportunity.

  98. Love this post!!! I am a 50 something mama… and I feel like I am abit out of touch with style and products – lets just say that thae 80’s and 90’s show up way to often on me (lol) …and yes, I know… (i’t not pretty)…. thanks for encouraging us with fashion, health and mostly JESUS

  99. My favorite trend right now is ruffles on everything! Love them — so feminine. Thanks for this Q&A post, Cyndi. It was very helpful!!

  100. I am definitely having a moment with poms, tassels, and embroidery this season. Anything and everything from shoes, jewelry and bags. And bonus if it’s bright and colorful 😉

  101. I love your blog and am grateful for all the info you share! This spring, I’m loving all of the florals-so cheerful!

  102. Bell sleeves! I’m also loving the criss-cross neckline of tees! I love your blog! You’re such an inspiration!

  103. I am loving the florals this year. finally some floral tops that are not “grandmother-ly” although my age migh suggest that I could be a grandmother! Thanks for this round up of questions and answers. Your blog is so greats becuase you keep it real and that is most important. You share a broad range of items which is also helpful.

    Would love to hear more about how God moved in your life to bring about this season. 🙂

  104. I am loving the criss-cross tee and ruffle sleeve trend this spring. Great post and I always enjoy your blog!

  105. Cyndi,
    I enjoy your blog, look forward to it everyday for your creativity in fashion! I don’t have a “trend” try and it keep it classic so it doesn’t go out of style but it’s fun to add a little flair and you have great ideas!!

  106. Loving the criss-cross tee and ruffle sleeve trend this spring! Your blog is great and I enjoy seeing all of your outfit posts.

  107. I love the bell sleeves and the ruffles everywhere. Of course, as an older woman, I need to be careful to not go overboard with these details. I’m loving all the feminine looks this spring. So happy to have color again in my wardrobe after the drab winter clothing. Thanks for sharing details about your style choices and your life.

  108. Cyndi….You are great. You don’t realize how many woman you touch and the lives you are changing through this blog. You not only show woman how to look their best on the outside but most importantly the INSIDE…….with Jesus. 🙂 I love all the feminine tops, the blush color, block heel sandals etc. etc. etc. I love all you style but I’m not a fan of the cold shoulder top. But, I did order the Target blush one that only has a small slit on the side of the arm. Perfect for me. 🙂 Thanks for all you do to make it fun on your blog. I look forward to it each morning as I’m having my coffee. Sometimes I debate….Cyndi’s blog first or my devotions? Ha Ha I love the Beauty for the Heart, its like blog and devotion in one. Bless you and thank you for the Loft card giveaway. I love LOFT. PS We all enjoy hearing about your family and seeing pictures. I love how you share your life and are real.

  109. Thank you for sharing all the little details. I’ve been wondering about underthings with all the new cutaway tops I’ve been seeing…

  110. Thank you for your wonderful beauty and fashion tips. I especially appreciate your spiritual inspiration! Loving the flowy and floral fashions for spring.

  111. I’m loving the peep-toe booties this spring! I don’t usually wear a high heel, but the chunky heels on the booties are actually very comfortable!

  112. Hi Cyndi,
    It was fun reading all your answers. Thank you for sharing! I really like the look of bell sleeves – they remind me of spring flowers 🙂
    Be blessed!

  113. I love your blog. I love the daily trends that you share and just getting ideas from you. Thank you for all you do. I have followed you for about 3–4 years now and yours is the one I look the most forward to every day.

  114. I love the wedge sandles for spring with white jeans. Cyndi’s style is amazing but her love for God keeps me inspired and returning to the blog daily.

  115. Cindy you are so beautiful and elegant. Thank you for sharing all of your favorites. I look forward to seeing your post daily. Your faith is so comforting. I am having a hard time aging but your posts inspire me that beauty can stay by faith and taking care of yourself. I love your fun classy style.

  116. I love these Q&A posts. I to have often wondered the same questions. Your blog is one of my daily go to’s. Thanks for always keeping it real

  117. Thank you for all the information about your make-up and cosmetics. I, for one, am not a shopper (for anything!), and having some suggestions for creams/foundations, etc. really helps me make some choices when I need a product. I am not one for a lot of make-up, and I don’t really know how to use make-up (one would think that as I am 63, I would have learned something by now 🙂
    Thanks again for everything you post.

  118. Thank you for sharing all that you share. I have learned so many tips & been exposed to so many different products in your blog than I could have ever found any where else. I especially love that you share clothing items that are modest & fashionable now that I’ve hit that “over 50” mark. I wasn’t a fan of bell sleeves but you’ve converted me! It’s my favorite spring trend now. Blessings!!

  119. I have to agree with many others here that my favorite spring trend is the open shoulder tops. I have actually purchased a couple so far, but haven’t worn them yet. I absolutely love your style and I look forward to reading your blog posts. Thank you so much for sharing with us!

  120. I love the embroidery trend. I have a home embroidery machine and I’m excited to try it on some plain sweatshirts, tops and jackets.

  121. Thanks so much for sharing your tips! It’s so nice to see your casual and dressy ideas kept classy. I look forward to your posts each day. I’m not sure I have a favorite spring trend but always live seeing what you suggest;)

  122. Cindy,
    Thanks so much for sharing with us and taking the time to do so! I love the cold shoulder look for spring and summer. It allows for coolness, but not reveal all of your arms if you choose not too. Great option!
    God bless you and Pastor Spivey as you continue to strive to serve the Lord in all you do!! Thanks also for the way that you share the Lord and His word on you blog daily.

  123. I really like the cold shoulder trend but I like when the straps on the top part are skinny and not wide. You have to wear a strapless bra but I think the top looks better with skinny straps. Thanks for doing your blog! I have gotten a bunch of great clothing ideas from you!

  124. Thank you for responding to all of these questions. I love your style and I’m especially loving the bell sleeves and ruffles this season. I feel they help cover an area I’m not really fond of ! Happy weekend.

  125. I would love if you can share about what you wear when you are staying at home all day. (Besides wearing PJs all day). haha.

  126. I love the bell sleeves and cold shoulders on blouses and I really love the patterned pants! Spring fashion is really fun this year.

  127. I’m loving the cold shoulder tops. I like that you can have bare shoulders and be cooler but cover up the unattractive area! Love your blog!

  128. I look so forward to your daily emails….I can not tell you how many tops I have purchased from Glamour Farms because of you! I appreciate your faith and commitment to your blog and especially to our Heavenly Father! My favorite spring trend is all the pretty pastels! I like some of the cold shoulder tops, but not the off the should tops so much! Do you have a recommendation for a blue and white striped top for spring? THANKS Cyndy and God Bless!

    1. Hi Maureen, That is the right product. It is used for acne but they found that it diminishes age spots and wrinkles. You can google Retin A for wrinkles.
      Hope that helps!

  129. Cyndi, I just loved reading this. It’s like we were having a girl’s night and you brought out all your favorite stuff. Thank you for sharing.
    My favorite trend is the floral, it’s everywhere and I don’t typically run with all things flowery 😛 But I’m loving it!

  130. Hi Cyndi! I love your blog and your style! On question #5 Faster way to weight loss, the link goes to Sephora. I remember reading one day about your workouts. I will go back and check it out. I want to find out more about the group. Thanks so much! I enjoy reading your blog everyday!

  131. Hi Cindy! I think you are amazing and love reading your blog daily! I love all the flutter sleeve and ruffle tops you style…well I love all that you style! I’ve also enjoyed “getting to know” your daughter and your sister!

    Thanks & God Bless

  132. I love the bell sleeves. I remember when they were in style in high school, and I would sew things and add a bell sleeve!

  133. I love your blog. Thanks for the Q&A post. I’m loving the big floral tunics and leggings look this spring. Thanks for chance to own..

  134. Loving the spring florals! (And also love the Loft!) Thanks for all your fashion inspiration and for sharing your faith.

  135. What a helpful post! Looking forward to having more time to check out these great items. Thank you for all you do and the blessing you are. My favorite trend would have to be floral prints. Blessings on your weekend!

  136. Thank you for such a helpful post! I can’t wait to check out some of these items a bit more. Your blog is a continual joy, and I appreciate all your hard work. My favorite trend right now is floral prints. Blessings on your weekend from snowy Colorado!

  137. Thanks for all the info especially about the undergarments. My favorite spring trend is the all the different sleeves. The tops seem more feminine this season.

  138. Thank you for writing about all of these things! As a busy homeschooling mom, there’s not much extra time to think about girlie-stuff. Your blog keeps me up-to-date & is full of pretty styles that I can just quickly copy. I really appreciate that! 🙂
    Favorite spring trend = cold shoulder sleeves.

  139. Just want to say thank you . For your posts and your fashion tips!! I love your style , since your blog I have changed the way I dress, and the way I feel about clothes! God Bless

  140. Thank you so much for taking the time to answer questions. I always feel like I can trust you for honest opinions!


  141. When I click on the link for the everyday bra, it takes me to the t-strap bra. Can you give the link for the everyday bra?

  142. I love hearing all your tips!

    My favorite trend right now is the lace up sandals. Just bought myself a pair yesterday. 😊

  143. The pants and top are adorable. It looks so cool and comfy.
    Question – the Differin cream is for acne but you find it works for sunspots, as well?

  144. Thank you for sharing with us! I love your style! I agree with the Wacoal bras–they are amazing especially for us with a larger chest.

  145. I enjoy your insight and style. Being a pastor’s wife myself, I tend to dress more modestly and well to be honest….boring. You give me great ideas one how to maintain the modesty while incorporating today’s styles. I look forward to your email daily.

  146. Love your simple style and that the clothes are affordable. I also love how down to earth you are. Love the great posts!

  147. I love your blog! While I have always “gotten dressed” every day, I don’t really like to shop for clothes. Fit is frustrating but mostly if the outfit isn’t already put together on display, I’m at a loss. Now I know what the trend are and how I can incorporate them tastefully for someone my age.
    I also love that you can be mindful of lookin’ good and have a heart for Jesus too.

    Love the pretty details on even casual tops like bell sleeves, lace-up, and crochet or lace.

    Thank you!

  148. I am not a “pink” person, but am liking the blush trend this spring. On your advice I purchased a blush top with ruffles. I enjoy not only your fashion sense and posts, but appreciate you sharing your faith in our Lord. I look forward to hearing about the new path God has planned for your lives as well. It is so affirming to see answer to prayers.. Godspeed

  149. Well, Cyndy, my taste really runs close to yours. I LOVE all of the feminine ruffles, bell sleeves and lace. I’m older than you are, so I find that I do have to hold back a bit sometimes with these trends because I’m pretty concerned about not looking like I’m trying too hard to look young. But I’ve found that pretty much some form of every trend can be done with a bit of careful thought and lots of shopping to find the right amount of “trend” in a piece of clothing. (Hmm, the lots of shopping part seems to work well for me. Ha!) I use you as a gauge to age appropriateness and modesty cuz you’re always on point in those areas, and you always look fantastic!

  150. Love your blog and your sense of fashion! I love that you love Jesus and your family. I live in a rural area and don’t see a lot of fashion. It’s really great to follow you and be kept up to date!

  151. Thank you for taking time to answer the Q&As. It is always nice to know what others use. I always look forward to reading your blog, however, your Sunday post is my favorite. You and your sister always inspire me so much when I need it the most with your devotional messages.

  152. This is a great post – I love the Q&A! I am loving the block heel sandals. Also, I want to try something wtih poms, but it will have to be the right thing. Still looking. ;0

  153. Love your blog..always an encouragement. I like all the ruffles and bell sleeves I am seeing. Thank you for all you do and share.

  154. I like the tips that you give and the links to the products that you use. But most importantly your love for our God!

  155. I am loving the bell sleeves, but prefer them to be 3/4 length not full sleeve length. And I love the cold shoulder. Need to try the Alpine snow polish for toes!

  156. My 10 year old daughter and I just gave each other a French manicure. I’ve never used white nail polish before but we both like the way it looks. Thanks for sharing that you like white polish all year-good to know!

  157. Than you so much for this post and chance to win. I’ve been reading you for years and love watching you personal and your blog’s growth.

  158. I am loving the current floral and feminine touches right now and the different shades of pink are so pretty in all skin types and ages. I also love that you stick to your own personal style while embracing and sharing the trends with us, your readers. With so many different styles that come out each season, you take what looks good on you and for your age and style it fabulously. With so many fashion bloggers out there, I like that you stay true to yourself.

  159. Thank you for doing this post Cyndi! It was so helpful! I love the perforated detail in so many shoes this spring…especially perforated wedge sandals!

  160. Not a fashion trend, but I love everyone’s short hair! I would never do it myself (w/my big head… :/) but I love seeing all these other women with buzzed heads – very cool.

  161. The white jeans! 😎
    Great q&a, thank you
    Question about the differin gel…my daughters been fighting forehead acne, should we try this for her?
    Thanks! 🤗

  162. Thank you for sharing and answering all these questions. I love your blog! You have such a pretty, flattering and feminine style.
    I’ll always love stripes and and enjoying th bell sleeves and other pretty sleeves this spring. I have to say I am growing to hate the cold shoulder tops – so so overdone. They are everywhere. Some were pretty but it’s just too much.

  163. Thank you for the giveaway opportunity Cyndi. I appreciate your blog and your sharing your faith journey. I especially love the Beauty for the Heart segment. Bless you on your new endeavor.

  164. When I wanted to update my wardrobe I found your blog and have been following it for several years. I love that pink is in style because it’s my favorite color! I recently ordered the Discovery Kit from Colleen Rothschild and have high hopes based on the positive reviews. Thanks for sharing your heart with us and encouraging women to be beautiful on the inside through a relationship with Jesus! God Bless you and your family 🙂

  165. I’m loving the cold-shoulder tops this spring. Your hair always is pretty, but I especially love it in the pic under #4. Very cute! Enjoyed this post.

  166. Thanks for answering all these questions, Cyndi, and giving us a glimpse inside… You are such a blessing and inspiration for me, and so many others… May God continue to bless your efforts!
    The Spring trend I most want to try is the pretty floral t-shirts/tops…

  167. I love the bell sleeves this Spring! And I love your very open and honest blog. Thank you for sharing with all of us.

  168. I always look forward to your post every day. I am traveling right but I am on my tablet so I don’t miss you. I come away with ideas for myself and you always make me think with your Scripture. Thank you

  169. I love blush pink and navy & white stripes! They tied for first place in my book. Thanks for sharing your favorites with all of us.

  170. I love your blog! You always look so classy and put together! I struggle with combining the cute pieces I find into outfits so your blog helps with ideas! I love all the stripes and fun sleeves this spring.

  171. Thanks for a behind the scenes look st your blog! Love your classic style that still manages to mix in the trends. I have loved the frayed hems and the espadrille wedges. So much fun to wear!

  172. I’m really liking the released hem jeans, the cold shoulder tops, cute florals and stripes and bell sleeves. As far as your husband goes I really hope to see him doing some menswear and fashion styling and then the two of you doing some marriage tips.

  173. Thanks for introducing me to Glamour Farms…I love all the fun, cute tops and paired with white jeans, I am ready for spring/summer…now if it will only stop snowing in Colorado!

  174. I absolutely love the floral trend this season! So many pretty colors, patterns & so feminine. I also love the beaded tassel earrings. I recently purchased a white pair that I love. I look forward to reading your blog every morning Cyndi!

  175. Thanks for catching us up on the day-to-day things. I’m excited to see where God leads you and your husband! My favorite spring trend is the continued versions of cold-shoulder tops!

  176. Your blog is my fav – love everything about it and you – the Godly messages, adorable fashion and great make up tips – I’ve bought several items from both Loft and Glamour Farms you recommend!
    Blessings to you and Wayne and please keep blogging!

  177. I am really loving both the stripe look and the spring floral look! I am looking to shopping at my local The Loft for these looks soon.

  178. I like the cold shoulder trend as well.
    Just purchased my first top in this style this week. I have to say I’m also glad wedges are still in style. Thanks for all the info! Love your blog.

  179. I love all the 70s looks, especially the wedge heels and peasant blouses. Thank you for your beautiful posts about fashion and faith!

  180. Love your blog and enjoyed the Q&A! I am really liking the released hem jeans and loose fit tees in bright colors or a cute pattern.

  181. Thank you for all the answers to questions! I can tell that you spend a tremendous amount of time on this everyday. I don’t know how you do it! My favorite trend this spring is all the lovely blush pink- so feminine and lovely- everything from pants to purses.

  182. The cold shoulder Trend is especially nice with the hot flashes I am currently having. Somehow it helps simply to have my shoulders uncovered. I just hope it’s not totally out of style next year! Also thanks for the answers. You answered some questions I didn’t know I had!

  183. The cold shoulder and ruffles …. not as likely to try the ruffles…
    Love your blog, read it every day! Thank you for your work – I appreciate it!

  184. Loved this helpful post! Thank you for taking the time to write it. Thank you for sharing Jesus in every post too. My favorite trend right now is the bell sleeve blouses. Thank you for styling some of those! God bless you and thank you for the giveaway!

  185. I am so appreciative for a Christian blog site w/ update fashion! Your honesty is beautiful ! Thank you for sharing

  186. I have 2 trends I love – the ruffled sleeves and the block heels. The sleeves are so feminine, but who can walk in a stiletto?

  187. Thank you for being transparent with us your readers. I love hearing about KY and about what God is doing in your life. I am a Kentucky girl who lives in NC. Love the Cats but not a fan of Calipari and am married to a Duke fan…it took me a long time to come around to that! 🙂

    I work full time and volunteer part time with Operation Christmas Child so have not had much time to shop, but the things I have gotten for spring are dusty blue wedge sandals, ankle pants for work, a cold shoulder floral top that I ended up getting of the mannequin and getting free (b/c the store had zeroed it out!!), and my new Operation Christmas Child white shirt with wide cuffed sleeves!

  188. Your blog is my favorite. thanks for sharing all your personal loves in beauty. I love your scriptures and all your spiritual messages you send out. I look forward to hearing from you and your husband. So uplifting!! 🙂 I never miss a day to read your blog.

  189. I have been a long time reader and still enjoy your posts.contratulatins on your success. Good luck to you and Wayne.

  190. I really like the blush trend. I enjoy your blog every day and even have my daughter reading it. She has even started commenting on whether my outfit is “very Cindy Spivey” or not 😊

  191. I forgot to add that I hit up the Loft today after your recent post and got several items. They are having a great sale and it didn’t hurt that I had a birthday coupon with them!

  192. I’m loving wearing white jeans and striped tops this spring. Thank you so much for all the good info. I have been following you for a few years now(boy how quickly time passes) and as you said ” you have built our trust” and only share the fashion, products and things you believe in and that’s what has made you successful and I appreciate that! Xoxo

  193. I love your blog post and read it faithfully!! Thanks for the tip about the white nail polish! I am hoping to try to fray hem jeans and the cold shoulder top! Kind of nervous to try them, but looks like a fun trend!
    I really appreciate your willingness to share all of your personal favorites! I just wish I could get my hair to look like yours!! 🙂
    May God bless you for your ministry and service!

  194. Thank you for sharing all of these helpful hints! I thoroughly enjoy your blog! This spring I am enjoying the feminine touches on sleeves, pretty floral designed fabrics and wedge sandals.

  195. I love the wedge sandals, and your outfit with the black cold shoulder top and white jeans is amazing!
    Thanks for sharing your beauty and your heart. Blessings!

  196. Spring trend I love this year is wedge sandles with white jeans. I love the cold should top too. I stop by dialy for Cyndi’s fashion advise but most of all I enjoy her uplifting beauty for the heart.

  197. Thanks for sharing! Enjoyed learning of new tips for makeup and skin care and also will be trying the white polish this summer.

  198. Thanks for all the info! Definitely going to look into the Color FX Illuminating Setting Spray. At my age, anything illuminating sounds intriguing! Haha

  199. This was a wonderful post full of great information! i have to say I always love white pants! After a long winter, it feels so bright and fresh to wear them.

  200. I like the pink jeans for spring. Though I am having trouble finding a pair! Old navy runs out of the strawberry color before they go on sale!

  201. When it gets warm enough, I’m looking forward to wearing casual dresses with white sneakers. It seems like it’s all about the sleeves this spring too–bell sleeves, lace & tie sleeves, cold shoulder sleeves. Should be fun! Thanks for your help with fashion update ideas. Cyndi! I appreciate it! You have helped me step out with more confidence!

  202. I see I have some competition Wink! I read the entire thing:) I love bell sleeves this spring. Is the retinol you use also an acne lotion? The link sent me to Target.

  203. Your style and mine are very similar. I just turned sixty and want to be up to date and look stylish. You always look so put together.
    Thank you for sharing your christian advice… very inspirational.

  204. Love your blog, love your love and zest for Jesus, love your style! I’m loving the cold shoulder look and the ankle tie shoes this season. They’ve been around for a few seasons but now they’re everywhere and there is such a variety for all ages. Thank you for sharing yourself with us … be blessed!

  205. I like the “blush” pink color that is new this year. thank you for your blog, and your heart for Jesus.

  206. My favorite trend this spring are the platform wedges! I love to wear heels but hate how they make my feet hurt. It is wonderful to wear a comfortable wedge that is on-trend!

    Love your blog and pics!

  207. Loved this post Cindi! Thanks for sharing with us! It’s so amazing that your blog went from something you did to honor your mom to a “job” and source of income! Congratulations! It’s neat to see God at work as He leads His children along the path He has chosen for them. Blessings!

  208. My favorite spring trends are blush-colored shoes and block heels. There is a blush pair of block-heeled sandals in my closet right now! They go with everything!!! 😍

  209. I love the sandals this spring. I bought some open toe booties for the Chicago weather and I love them. I really love the wedged heal shoes as well.

  210. I love that most any length pants or crops are stylish now. And I love that a modified/more sophisticated hippy-era look is in! Takes me back to my growing-up era. How fun that I can get away with the styles I grew up with and enjoyed so much!

  211. My favorite fashion trend this Spring would probably be all the ruffles and bell sleeves. So very feminine and Cindi, you do a great job of highlighting those trends! So thank you!

  212. There are several trends I’ve been enjoying lately! Specifically scallops, tassels and pom-poms on everyday items like sandals and purses!

  213. Hi Cindy, I love the ruffles this spring. Great for the pear shaped figure as they draw the eye upward. (So I’ve been told).

    I love how you are going on faith. I love hearing stories of people who have stepped out of their comfort zone and are trusting in God’s leading. Bless you.

  214. I think florals. I really like your style and have pinned a lot of your outfits on my Pinterest board for Stitch Fix. 🙂

  215. I love your blog and read you daily! You have great style and look adorable in all the outfits you wear! I am a big fan of the cold shoulder look – I think it is very flattering – It’s funny to me that I’ve had men friends’ say ‘oo, sexy’ – when it is nothing more than a shoulder vs. when you wear sleeveless and they wouldn’t comment like that.

  216. I enjoy reading your blog. The fact that it is a Christian blog is what had me subscribe to it. I do like the honesty in your wrinting.

  217. I always enjoy hearing how things work, like blogging. I always wonder and wish I could get behind the screen.

    Would rally enjoy spending $100 at loft without it effecting my bank account!

  218. I love your blog and appreciate your recommendations. My favorite soring trend is the fun sleeves on tops!!!

  219. I love, love, love your blog Cyndi! Thank you so much for your honesty and sharing your love of Christ with us!

  220. I enjoy just figuring out what is in style for the season and having a blog to come to for the answers! And getting a chance to see how they look on you and deciding how they would fit into my life or not. Thanks!

  221. Thanks for the information on products you use, I will definitely be checking some of those out! Love your style too!

  222. Cyndi, I really look forward to your daily posts. Lots of great information on new trends… Right now I’m loving the cold shoulder look. Have purchased several tops. Chunky heels are another like.

  223. I love the cold shoulder tops but I really LOVE the new spring patterns and colors this year, beautiful!!!

  224. Thanks for answering all those questions. I like comfortable but put together outfits. You show alot of that with what you wear. I love all the outfits you showed from the Loft. Thanks for keeping us blessed.

  225. Thanks so much for all you do. I love reading your blog every day and seeing how I can put my outfits together lol. I am loving floral dresses this spring.

  226. Very informative blog, loved the different products. One thing I would have liked to see was your closet and how you store all the clothes,

  227. I finally purchased nude wedges after seeing you and jolynne style them often. I love them. So happy for you that your blog has grown, I hope it continues to do so.

  228. I love your blog. I really look forward to it every day. I also love the message on Sunday. Thanks for all you do.

  229. Love the florals for spring and summer! Also, I really enjoyed all that you shared today. I have been enjoying your blog for more than two years now and it is something I look forward to every day while I am eating my lunch. I am a kindergarten teacher and it is a very calming and peaceful way to spend my 30 minutes. I especially enjoy your Beauty for the heart! Thank you for all you do!

  230. Love your blog! Going to Arizona on Thursday to my son Graduate from college! Used your ideas to put together some cute outfits for our trip .thank you 😀😀

  231. I love the cold shoulder tops, particularly those with ruffles. I also appreciate that you style with jewelry and other accessories. The bright colors for spring are refreshing. Thank you for keeping it real.

  232. My favorite spring fashion trend is the peplum ruffle. Thank you so much for your blog! I do enjoy the fashion info however, my very favorite part is the beauty for the heart! You have been such a blessing not only to me but many others as well!!

  233. I actually have two trends that I like this spring ! I like the bell sleeves and the block heels. I guess everything old is new again! Thanks for a great giveaway, and thanks for all you do, Cyndi! Blessings!

  234. I love the floral trend, but admittedly, am having a hard time finding just the right item for me! The search is fun ❤

  235. Thank you for this post. Your explanation on how you make money from your blog was very easy to understand and on point. It makes those of us thinking about starting a blog much easier to understand. Have a great day!

  236. Thank you for being so real Cyndi! I look forward to your posts everyday 🙂 And not just for the fashion. You have such an honest way about you that I sincerely love. Thanks for doing what you do – I’m sure it’s far more work than we realize.
    As for spring – I love all the feminine patterns, ruffles, and just “prettiness’.

  237. I’m loving the off shoulder trend! My shoulders are nice but my upper arms are not. This look gives the best of both worlds!!

  238. I am loving the floral trend this spring. I love to read your blog, it gives me so many ideas for putting together outfits.

  239. I would have to say that the “white toe nail polish” is what interested me in current fashion trends. I love your blog and have followed for years!!

  240. While I really like the soft pink this season, I’m having fun with the released hems. Thanks for all you do!

  241. This spring, I am loving the off-the-shoulder tops, and topics with interesting sleeves (ruffles, etc.). So cute and fun. Love your blog!

    Thank you!

  242. I love the bell sleeves although I don’t have any tops with them yet. I love seeing more of blush color!
    Thanks for Q&A.

  243. I am loving ruffles this season! I bagan shopping at Loft several years ago just because of your blog. Thank you!

  244. I love the ruffles and bell sleeves that are trending now! I am a girly girl and like all things feminine. I also have taken a liking to the frayed hem denim (which I was certain would not be a favorite…ha!) Thanks for sharing both your style and your faith. That is what drew me to your blog and I am enjoying it immensely. Blessings to you and Wayne as God leads.

  245. Yours was the first blog I found. I really love the blush color, all the cute details, and the block heels.

  246. Because of your blog, I am considering a pair of block heels this season. They are so cute and I think I would like the stability of them.

  247. I look forward to reading your blog everyday. I am really loving white pants this spring. And, espadrilles! Thank you for sharing each day!

  248. My favorite trend this summer is all the cute sleeve details. I love everything from cold shoulder to bell sleeves.

  249. I am loving the bell sleeves and also all the florals!
    I also enjoy reading your blog and especially love your Beauty from the Heart.

  250. I have had 60 birthdays 🙂 and I’ve lost 65 pounds over the last year. Finding your blog and your style tips have been such a blessing to me! Thank you that you share both affordable and high end choices, as there are some things I’m willing to invest in and other “fun” items I’d like to save on. You are doing a wonderful service and we all love you!

  251. Love your blog. I can really identify with you. 🙂 I love the raw or frayed hem jeans but I haven’t found a pair to purchase yet!

  252. Cold shoulder tops (some of them anyway) :0) ~ pretty florals when tasteful, and my favorite is ball caps are pretty popular here which I am a huge fan of and have been since forever so it is nice to see such fun new caps available!(lazy hair day anytime) Lol.

    Have a great weekend.

  253. I’m loving the ankle jeans with the released hem. They work great for me since I’m on the shorter side.

  254. My usual choice is not normally toward the pink tones, but I am really loving the blush look this spring. Haven’t found my perfect piece yet. Thanks, Cyndi for everything you do.

  255. Great post – I’d love to see you do this every few months. Really enjoy your blog – most of all look forward to
    beauty for the heart. So many times it just what I need! Thanks for you hard work.

  256. I love the cold shoulder, off the shoulder, and frayed hem trends this season! Thank you for your blog and all the great fashion and beauty ideas. You have so many great suggestions! 🙂

  257. Thank you for sharing your skin care routine – I like hearing about new-to-me products and it’s helpful to have a recommendation from a person I trust! I love your blog Cyndi!

  258. Love your blog and read it every day! I have several favorite trends this season: the released hem in jeans, the lace up sandals, the blush color and the bell sleeves in tops!

  259. I love that you are honest and candid about what is going on in your life. We all have struggles and yes, you make it look easy so thank you for sharing. I love the nude/pale pink colors for this year. It was popular last year and continues to stay in trend. I love it.
    I love the bell sleeves if it hits right at the hips. It can accentuate the hips and I don’t need that. I am built a lot like you but maybe a little more curvy.

  260. When someone such as myself first begins reading blogs, I started with just yours and Jolynne’s, it does appear easy
    and super fun. But as I have read many now, some going into detail about their “typical day” it amazes me!! I could never be so organized with all the boxes coming in and out. Thanks for the hard work and all the tips, I have appreciated them. The one look I have NOT embraced is the cold shoulder, Ha, to me it looks like the shirt is incomplete. Hope your day is a peaceful one.

  261. I’m loving all the feminine details – ruffles, florals, blush pink color. I look forward to your posts everyday, but my favorite part is Beauty for the Heart. Thanks for all you do.

  262. Thanks for the informative post! I read your and Jo-Lynne’s blogs regularly, and it doesn’t look easy to me!! There are some days I just feel unmotivated or don’t feel like “getting ready”. I would imagine with a brand and following to think of, you don’t get too many down-time days. I think you both do a great job, and I appreciate how you both have the integrity to only promote products you believe in. Keep up your good work! Best of luck to you and your husband on this new phase of life!

  263. I love that you are so up front on your blog! I think my favorite spring trend is all the detail on tops. Bell sleeves and off shoulder are so cute.

  264. I enjoy reading your blog everyday. I learn something new most days. I’m enjoying the florals and blush pink trends this season. Hope you have a wonderful day.

  265. I am not usually a fan of lace but I just bought a t-shirt with a lace overlay. It’s different but not to dressy. Thanks for all of your great posts !

  266. Thank you so much for such an informational posting, Cyndi! I appreciate the time and effort that goes into each post. There are many items that I love to learn about. I am in awe about all of information you provide us readers! Thank you you so much!
    I’m not certain how to register/be considered for the $100.00 gift card! Please let me know, or feel free to throw my name into the mix, too :)!

  267. Thanks for sharing your secrets with us. I look forward to trying some of the products!

  270. the Loft is one of my favorite places to shop. They are one of the few that carry smaller sizes. I wish there was a Nordstrom close by, although I’ve never actually shopped there.

  271. I love the new wider straps on spring sandals this year! Cindi, thanks for sharing your beauty and fashion tips!!

  272. I love that fashion and clothes are pretty and feminine again. Detail such as lace, crochet, ruffles, pretty colors, flirty dresses and blouses.

  273. I love the embroidery details that are so popular this year!
    Thanks for the post and for the fun giveaway!

  274. I’m with you – hoping white nail polish never goes out of style! Wishing you a blessed spring!

  279. Love reading your blog! Can’t stay to comment more….to busy as Sephora and Ulta shopping off your links, lol!

  280. I love the cold shoulder look and the different ways it can be styled. Thanks for the inspiration you give to all every day!

  281. Thank you for being so honest and available to your readers, we appreciate all the information you share!

  282. Thanks for sharing these great ideas! I am a younger reader who enjoys your simple, classy style. I recently found out I am pregnant – do you have any blogs to share that can help with maternity style? Thanks!

  283. I like the block-heel trend for this spring! Loft is one of my favorite places to shop. I’m so glad you feature their clothes frequently. Thank you for all the work you do to show us the latest trends!

  284. I really am liking the floral patterns that are in style this spring and summer. Makes me feel a bit more girly.

  285. Oh my goodness! Love your blog and love when you do the try on’ for clothes. It is good to see how they fit on you because if it does not look good on you,it won’t on me either!!!! Love the cold shoulder look.

  286. I love these kinds of posts! I feel like I know you a little better after a post like this! Have a great week!!

  287. Thank you so much for the recommendation for the retin A. I actually just purchased a product called Key West retinol cream and got it in the mail yesterday. I had searched on your website and you had recommended it awhile ago which is why I purchased it. I have really bad sun spots all over my face, neck, and hands. Do you think the product you mentioned in this post is better than the Key West? Thank you!

  288. Thank you for your honesty. I truly appreciate the time you take to explain products and fit. I am a widow on a very tight budget,so it is very helpful to me to know styles and challenges me to find them within my budget. My family is my everything, especially my grandchildren and I am able to so identify with you when you write about your family and especially your grandson. Your blog is the only one I subscribe to and look forward each day to read yours. I so enjoy reading about your love of the Lord, and your family, the two most important parts of my life.
    Blessings to you and your family!

  289. I’m loving all of the bright colors of many of the spring clothes! They make me happy!
    Thanks for creating your blog!

  290. Thank you for sharing your passion with us each day! You are an inspiration to so many women and I am so thankful to receive your fashion tips and godly messages.

  291. I love the cold shoulder tops. I’m not as fond of sleeveless tops as I used to be and these give just enough style without looking stuffy. Love your question and answer post. Always enjoy checking out your blog.

  292. Cyndi! I’m loving that green Loft halter on you! There’s so many cute tops this spring with interesting details. And just a heads up…I clicked on the link for “over the counter Retin A” but it links to an acne product from Target instead of the product you mentioned. So, I’m wondering which one you use. Thanks!

  293. Thanks for sharing all your tips and tricks. Love reading your blog everyday! My favorite spring fashion is white jeans and white ankle pants. They go with everything!

  294. Thanks for your posts! I’ve learned a lot from you. I’m finally getting on board with the cold shoulder trend, and I’m happy to see that stripes are still in!

  295. I really enjoyed reading your answers! I need to try out those concealers! Looking forward to trying new trends this spring and summer!

  296. I just started following your blog and I love it! I am a 57 year old woman who still likes to be fashionable! Looking forward to future posts!

  297. Cyndi, I love your blog and your style. I’ve learned so much!!! Thank you for everything you do!

  298. I like the ruffles on tops, both ruffled sleeves and ruffled hemlines (and the shirts I’ve seen with ruffles on the front).

  299. I loved this Q & A post – will be trying many of your favorites! I have been trying to use Retin A for months, but I just can’t seem to get past the flaking especially around my nose & eyes. Any suggestions?

  300. Very interesting post! Thanks for sharing this personal information. I so enjoy reading your blog, seeing the outfits you put together, and reading the bible verse you’ve selected.

  301. Thanks for the Q&A post! I love reading your posts and checking out fashions.I am liking the cold shoulder tops for spring.

  302. Love the cold-shoulder style…even us older gals can wear this trendy style & still look age appropriate. Love your blog re:fashion, but especially appreciate your inspirational words pointing us to Christ. Thank you for your walk of faith before many.

  303. I like this spring’s bell sleeves. Your blog is always a source of inspiration in both faith and fashion.

  304. Cindy, thank you for your blog. I follow daily and I love your sense of style. Since I turned 40, I’ve been concerned about how to dress appropriately for my age and your blog has helped so much. I feel that I can relate to you and your style. My favorite fashion trend this spring is the pretty pale pink shades and the wedge sandals. Thank you for everything you do and may God Bless you and your family!

  305. I love reading your blog and have been an avid follower for a couple of years. I love your honest writing — I know I can trust your recommendations.

  306. Thank you for the Q & A today. It’s fun and helpful to see what products you’re using. I am really enjoying the cold shoulder tops and the cut off jeans are cute too. I really love reading “Beauty for the Heart” at the end of your blog. They always bring a smile and encouragement.

  307. I’m loving the bell sleeve tops and ruffles. Mostly, I’m loving your blog! I talk about you like we’ve known each other for years and although we’ve never met, what a blessing to know we are sisters in Christ! Keep doing what you’re doing……..sharing fashion, etc but mostly sharing his Word!! Blessings to you & your family!

  308. My favorite trend for spring are the shoes!! I love the idea of suede in spring with the block heels.

  309. Looking forward to trying an off the shoulder blouse or dress for some occasion this summer! Winning that Loft gift card would sure help!

  310. I am enjoying the cold shoulder tops – didn’t think I would but they are turning out to be a perfect solution to my reservations of having sleeveless tops and not liking my upper arms! Thank you for all your hard work and passion on this blog. So happy to have found you (:

  311. I am loving the blush color this bring along with the bell sleeve trend. Love reading your blog. Since turning 50, it’s so hard to know what’s appropriate for us 50 somethings wear. Thank you for your fashion guidance!

  312. I would love to try the one shoulder tops this season and I just picked up another pair of block heel sandals for the spring/summer season. The newer cold shoulder tops seem to fit a lot better than last year’s. I guess they have perfected them now. Thanks so much for sharing all your undergarment secrets. They were all very helpful. I read your blog almost daily and love your style and love for our lord and his word.

  313. Thank you for sharing! A friend turned me on to your blog and I have shared with a few friends too!!

  314. I am loving the cold shoulder tops this Spring. I also love the subtle florals but am still on the fence if I can pull them off.
    Thanks for sharing all your looks, I look forward to it daily.

  315. Thank you for this post. I really appreciate all the hard work to put on your blog not only for us but for you. May the Lord continue with you and your husband. Have a blessed day!

  316. Cyndi, I truly appreciate your transparency about your product endorsements. I think my favorite trend is the feminine bell sleeves and ruffles. I have a few things from last summer, but I’m looking forward to adding new things. Thank you!

  317. I have to say my favorite trends are Florals, cold shoulder styles, and all the fancy sleeve styles. Thanks for the great blog Cyndi and good luck with everything!

  318. I am a faithful reader, and I think you are just darling! Thanks for your honesty and thanks for sharing your faith!!

  319. I love the sleeveless olive colored shirt and print pants so much I ordered them and they will be here tomorrow! This will be my first time wearing a print pant so I hope I can pull them off as well as you do 🙂

  320. I love the block heels and hope they never go out of style!! I am so over the cold shoulder tops!!!

  321. My favorite fashion trend this year is stripes! They seem to be everywhere. Thank you for bringing glam back…to us ladies over 40. We are in the prime of our lives and should walk with grace and peace in our hearts and set the example for younger men and women.

  322. I purchased a pair of the block heels. Am totally loving them. And I am really liking the cold shoulder look.

  323. I love the tunic tops and leggings and all the boyfriend jeans! I also love your blog!
    You are an inspiration!

  324. My favorite spring trend is bell sleeves. I love your blog!! Blessings from Morgantown, KY. 😊

  325. Loving the florals and patterns on everything, the bright vibrant colors are great too. I appreciate the inspiration you are and the way being aware of my wardrobe makes me feel so much “significant”. I used to ‘hide’ in my clothes and with your help and example I feel like I stand out now! Thank you!! God bleass

  326. Thank you for all your hard work! I truly enjoy reading your blog everyday….you are an inspiration and I love your style!

  327. I love the Bye Bye Under Eye concealer. I don’t know if I heard about if from you or JoLynne but it is the only thing that will cover under my eyes without looking cakey. Thanks for sharing!

  328. Hello Cindy, I am having a hard time finding cold shoulder tops that fit me right. I don’t like the way the sleeves lay on my arms. How should they lay? I am 5″2″. Maybe I should try these shirts in a petite size.

  329. Hello there!

    Thank you so much for sharing all the details with us!! My favorite spring tip so far has been the fresh look of your nails! I like the light summer look!

    Happy May Day!

  330. I like the cold shoulder trend and the feminine and lacy touches that are popular right now. 🙂

  331. Hello Cyndi!…I enjoy your blog, so fun to see all the new fashions!
    Love the freyed jeans and I’m anxious to try block heels, they look comfy!

  332. I also think the link to the cream for age spots is wrong (it goes to an acne treatment).

    I like the green halter, but I will definitely need to check out the bras you suggested.
