Ask Hel Q&A February

Happy Friday friends! I love all Fridays but this one in particular is very exciting! I’m heading on the Kesha Cruise tomorrow with my sister. We love Kesha! Have always loved Kesha, will always love Kesha. There are a bunch of other artists and performers coming on this cruise too (including Jonathan Van Ness from Queer Eye!) Needless to say, I’m excited!

So on this excellent Friday, I’m going to answer some questions. I used to do these regularly and kind of fell off the wagon. It’s time to jump back on though, so let’s do it!


How do you balance a full time job and blogging?

I got several variations of this question and it was requested that I start adding more entrepreneurial/girl boss content into my blog. I will work on it going forward. For now, we’ll start with this question. I will say, it’s not easy. I am not home from 7:15 in the morning til typically between 6-7 at night. I’m commuting part of that time.

Because I’m not blogging a huge chunk of the day, I have to hyper-focus on nights and weekends. It’s not always easy because I am exhausted when I get home and just want to hang out with my husband and watch Netflix. Weekends are where I get the majority of my work done and I have to have a plan.

Time batching is my best friend. I can write a whole post about this if you’re interested.

If you are going to do both, you also have to make sacrifices. I don’t say yes to every plan that comes along because I know I need to make time to work. So sometimes I get FOMO and miss things that I would like to attend, but in the end it’s worth it. I really love my blog and so I make the time for it.

Oh, and Diet Coke. I drink a lot of Diet Coke.

Did you get invited to the Kesha cruise?

I did not! My little sister and I are going for her graduation/birthday/fun. We’ve never been on a trip just the two of us, and we LOVE Kesha and JVN. It is not a sponsored trip. We are going on our own for fun!

Where are your shoes with the glitter heels from?

I assume you’re talking about these? I have them in black, rose gold, and then without the glitter in black, rose gold, and nude. They are my favorite heels in the whole world because they are so comfortable! They have limited sizes left of all these options.

What’s your favorite wine?

I’m so basic. I love the Chateau St. Michelle Sauvignon Blanc. So cheap, really good, and you can buy it at the grocery store.

Is the RevAir as cool as you say?

It’s better! I’m not lying. Check out the whole post and my video here.

What does your husband do?

He works in marketing too–primarily paid search.

Where in Atlanta do you get your nails done?

Oh I could go on and on about my nail salon forever. I go to Les Mains Nail Bar in Buckhead. This is my favorite place I’ve ever been. The salon is beautiful, their technique is flawless, and everyone is SO nice. The owner is usually there when I go. She is so friendly and always checks my nails before I leave. The quality is amazing (I usually get SNS for reference.) I will go to Les Mains forever.

That’s it for today! Do you get SNS or gel?

    Have a great time on the Kesha Cruise! I love traveling and doing fun things with my sisters. I’m always interested in learning more about batching. I know the basic concept, but haven’t ever seen it action.

    Okay, those glitter heels are to DIE for! I’m all for buying shoes I really love in multiple colours too, then you can wear them with practically anything! 🙌

    Have fun on your cruise! I’m currently working full time and then working on blogging and building my freelance writing business during the evening and on weekends. The struggle is real, but also SO worth it! I think when you’re passionate about what you’re doing it’s easier to put in the hard work. Thanks for sharing this fun Q&A – I look forward to reading more of your content!
