Coffee Date - Volume One

I'm excited to share my first Coffee Date on Southern Style! I love getting to know more about the gals behind my favorite blogs, so I'm going to start sharing little tidbits about myself once a month - and answering questions that I get asked about on Insta, email, or right here on the blog!

1. What kind of dog do you have?
This is probably one of my most frequently asked questions! Sophie is a 4-lb. Maltipoo and my tiny best friend. She is almost 5 years old - my parents got her for me the summer before my junior year of college and she's been my sidekick ever since! If you're looking for a small dog, I would highly recommend a maltipoo - Soph has such a great temperament + she doesn't shed!

2. How do you curl your hair?
In recent days, I've gone back in time to my hot roller days, so I've been using these a couple of times a week. For my actual curls, I use a Conair 3/5" - super inexpensive (less than $20) and can be found at Target!

3. What is your coffee order?
I always love seeing what others order, so this was a fun question! It honestly depends on where I'm going, but if I go to Starbucks in the winter, I get a vanilla blonde (light) roast with either almond milk or half & half and two Splendas, and in the summer, I love an iced skinny caramel machiatto or a caramel iced coffee with almond milk. 

4. What is your day job?
I work as the Custom Home Program manager for a golf course and residential community. I also have my real estate license, so I do that on occasion for the same company as well. Prior to that, I worked in advertising and marketing. 

5. What can you tell me about eyelash extensions?
They are seriously the best! I am happy to do a full post on this is anyone is interested in the ins-and-outs, but I never wear eye makeup anymore unless it's a special occasion (and then I'll put on a tiny bit of eyeliner). 

6. How long have you and your boyfriend been together?
Stephen and I started dating in college - so almost 5 and a half years and counting!

7. Where do you get your barre clothes?
I'm all over the place when it comes to what I wear to barre. I have several go-tos that I bought directly from my PB studio. I also did a collab with Pure Barre Wilmington that resulted in a fab pair of Beyond Yoga leggings - if you want to splurge, I would recommend these (and they are 25% off!). And I also love finding cute pieces from F21 + Old Navy!

I love having the opportunity to share a little bit more about myself but would also love to know more about you! If you have your own Coffee Date series, please let me know! And as always, feel free to leave any questions here in the comments, via email, or even on Insta or Snapchat (zellebrown).
