Ask Seersucker Sass (Round Two)

Happy Monday, y'all!  Isn't it hard to believe that Christmas is less than a week away?!  (If you're still shopping, be sure to search for gift guides in the search bar!)

I'm excited for round two of Ask Seersucker Sass.  I always try to be transparent with y'all, so this gives me a chance to answer questions about things you may be curious about.



PETS


What kind of dog is office pup?
Office pup is a boxer!  He came from a rescue, so his owner isn't sure if he's a full boxer or if he's a mix.  If you're looking to rescue a boxer pup, I'll be glad to pass along the rescue's info.

Is Francis ever going to come to work with you?
Probably not!  I have a 30 minute commute to work, and traveling with Francis is not a one person job.  She's mischievous, and it's hard telling what she could find to get into in my office.

FASHION & BEAUTY

Any tips for dressing cute when it's warm?
Layers are your best friend if you're always cold like I am!  I wear a lot of blazers in the winter because they look nice and add an extra layer of warmth.  I do the same with ponchos; they aren't as dressy, but they're fun and super warm.  Also, invest in high quality winter accessories like gloves, a scarf, earmuffs, and boot socks, that are cute but also functional.  Thin scarves and dressy socks are cute, but what's the point if it isn't keeping you warm?  

How do you do your braided knot?
The braided knot has been getting lots of attention on Snapchat.  There's a full tutorial here.  I've contemplated doing a video tutorial, so if that's something y'all would like to see, just let me know!

Where do you do most of your shopping?
I buy most of my pants from J. Crew Factory and basically everything else from Nordstrom.  (You can't beat free shipping and free returns every time!)  My favorite local boutique is Mimi Mae Boutique.  One of my really close friends, Cori, owns it, so I love popping in to see her and checking out some really unique pieces.  The atmosphere of her store is so cool - lots of pink, including a pink couch, and Gossip Girl is usually playing!  (PS - She ships!)

Current must have beauty products?
This lash primer because it makes my wimpy little lashes so long & this eyeshadow (c/o) in gold because it's super easy to apply and looks good alone or as a base.


PERSONAL

What are you binge watching on Netflix?
Gilmore Girls on Netflix and The Mindy Project on Hulu!

Last book you read?
Still working on To Kill a Mockingbird.  My goal for 2017 is to read more than I did this year; I'm embarrassed at how little reading I did.

Biggest pet peeve?
Negative energy.  I will never understand how people can just be so negative all of the time.  It will suck the life right out of you if you let it.

What is the best piece of career advice you've ever received?
Scrub toilets with enthusiasm, and when you're finished, help the people around you scrub their toilets.

Why do you get infusions?
I have a chronic illness in which my immune system attacks a healthy organ in my body.  The infusion suppresses my immune system, which keeps my chronic illness under control, but also leaves me extra susceptible to other unpleasant things like viruses, colds, infections, etc.  Ultimately, the infusions are worth the negative side effects, and I'm really fortunate that I manage to stay as healthy as I do!


BLOG

How do you make money blogging?
A combination of sponsored posts (receiving money to write about a product) and affiliate links (receiving a small commission when purchases are made using links I have shared).  I only share affiliate links to items that I'm actually interested in, and I always disclose when a post is sponsored.  (Read all about it here.)

What's next for Seersucker Sass?
I'm rolling out something really cool in the first quarter of 2017, and I cannot wait to share it with y'all!  I'm also hoping to step my Instagram game up, because it is the social platform that I enjoy the least.  Last but not least, I hope to switch over to self-hosted Wordpress and invest in some blog services from my blogger bestie Jenny, owner of Confetti Social!


With all of that being said, I want to learn more about you!  I'd love for you to answer any of the questions about that are relevant to you, or answer the following - What is something I would be surprised to know about you?

Happy Monday, sweet friends!

  12. First things first, I love that you're reading To Kill a Mockingbird (as an Alabama girl & as a lover of classic books-it's a great choice!) Make sure to read Go Set a Watchman when you finish! Secondly, I would love for you to do a post about swapping over to self-hosted wordpress & all the things in entails, that's very interesting to me!
