the friday edit + my first Q&A video (including my biggest social media regret!)

Happy Friday, you guys! With the 5 Questions challenge floating around on Instagram, I got a new idea: what if I shared a Q&A-style video with questions submitted by you?? This is my first time asking you guys if you wanted me to answer anything and I was blown away by how many questions were sent over… so I will definitely be doing another Q&A video soon. Most of you submitted questions about blogging and social media, so this video is definitely geared toward that. Going forward, I plan to change it up with the topics and answer all types of questions, so if you’ve got ’em, send them in!

Some of the questions I answered this week include…

How do you stay motivated as a blogger?

How did you grow your following (was it organic or did you market yourself)?

How do you find inspiration?

Plus, I also shared a bit of a manifesto on how I feel about the boho trend now (lol). I allllmost edited out that portion of the video, but felt like it was more authentic to keep it in and share my thoughts on boho with you — even though they might be slightly controversial.

In case you missed it, here’s what we shared on the blog this week:

my search for a stylish coffee table with storage

an unexpected Valentine’s Day cloche centerpiece

a moody & dramatic Valentine’s Day tablescape for two

DIY essential oil + soy wax sachets for your valentine

Plus, here are a few things that have inspired me this week:

How to hide light fixture cords (yes please!!)

For those of you with chickens like us: what makes blue eggs blue.

I trust Grace’s beauty reviews implicitly, so it was awesome to see her thoughts on infrared saunas.

Can my pantry pleeease look as lovely as Rebecca’s? Major goals, you guys.

What not to do when editing your belongings — I’m guilty of number 2.

How good does this burrito bowl sound??

I hope you enjoyed the video and let me know what other questions you have that I can answer. Have a great weekend!
