Ask Kate I

I posted about a week ago saying that I was starting a new series called "Ask Kate". I'm hoping to do more of these, and when I do I'll definitely notify you to ask me some questions in the comments and/or email me. I just want to thank you for all of the questions that I received! I'm really excited to answer these questions for you all! Let me know if you like this style of post so I can be sure to do more in this new little series!

Let's get started with the questions! 

What is your favorite fitness routine?
I know I mention all too much that I'm on a new health crave, but along with the healthy eating comes fitness. I go to a gym to workout, but I usually have no idea what to do there. That's why I like going with my sister! What we usually do is climb the stair-stepper for about 10 minutes, do the bikes for 40 minutes or the elliptical for 30 minutes. If we're feeling it we will do some ab workouts in one of the dance studios. I like to do crunches and planks. I'm definitely looking forward to increasing the amount of times I go to the gym because I don't go all that often. With my increased presence at the gym I'm thinking about starting to swim, run, and even do some weight lifting {nothing too intense--don't worry}.

What inspired you start blogging?
I started blogging really because I became obsessed with reading blogs! I loved reading Frannie's blog The Blonde Prep and I was sort of inspired to create my own. Also, the year I began blogging was the year I really changed my style so it sort of just clicked.

How did you become an established blog?
I wouldn't call my blog established, but I would say that I have a few dedicated readers. My blog is nowhere near as popular as some of my favorites, but it's still continuing to grow, which I enjoy. I think continuing to blog even if you don't feel like anyone is reading is something good. People are reading they just might not show it. As time passes and you continue to stay dedicated your followers will increase as well. That's just about the best advice I can give.

Do you have any tips for beginning bloggers?
I wrote out all of my tips in the Blogging Basics post so definitely check that out if you want a little bit of insight into a semi-experienced {that'd be me} blogger. The best tips I have would be to understand that it's a huge commitment, be consistent, be original and connect with your readers.

What are your favorite snack foods?
 I really love pretzels + pomegranate. Those are probably the two foods I eat most of! But, I also love fruit snacks, goldfish, kiwi, pineapple, tortilla chips and popcorn {especially Skinny Pop}.

Do you have a tumblr and if so what's the URL?
I do have a tumblr. I actually have two! Keep in mind I'm not super active on tumblr just because I really like Pinterest better. But my first tumblr is called The Preppy Daily, but the other tumblr that I actually use and is more recent is The California Waves. The California Waves tumblr is so different from my blog and that's why I was a little hesitant to share it with you, but since you ask--there you go!

Favorite nail polish color at the moment?
My top three favorite nail polishes of all time are Essie Turquoise & Caicos {better in the summer though}, Sinful Colors Calypso and OPI Jade is the New Black.

How would you style beige jeans?
I think beige jeans would look really classy paired with a black sweater and a statement necklace. Or it'd look great with a flowy white shirt of some sort and maybe even a black or striped blazer over it.

Any favorite YouTubers?
I'm so obsessed with YouTube and I'm subscribed to over 70 channels because I love it that much. I've always wanted to have a very successful YouTube channel of my own, but I've sort of given up on that dream because I don't think I'd have time for it. But my favorite YouTubers include THATSOJACKShannon BarkerMaddi Bragg and Connor Franta

Thank you guys so much for the questions! It really does mean a lot to me and I'm so glad that this post was such a success! Let me know if you'd like to see more Ask Kate's in the future!

XOXO, Kate


  1. Great post Katelyn! Love this segment!


  2. I just love these kinds of posts and am so glad you started one! One thing I've always meant to ask you was what pom (or poms?) is? You've mentioned it so many times before and I was never sure if it was your school's dance team or cheerleading team. I've just always been curious...haha and also, what's currently your favorite brand? And the thing you are most looking forward to as the weather gets warmer? Hope to see these in your next Ask Kate post! ;) haha


    1. I'll most definitely feature all of these in the next "Ask Kate" post! Thanks so much for your wonderful comment and support Caroline!

      XOXO, Kate

  3. I love this post! You should totally do more! I love what you said about "blogging even if no ones reading"! I think its really important to remember that you should only blog because you LOVE it, not for any other reason!

    1. Thanks Neidelyn! I'll definitely do more "Ask Kate" segments!

      XOXO, Kate

  4. I loved the beige jeans fashion tips! Thanks!
