I hope you’re all hanging in there! I’m going to keep tryin’ to do my thing over here, I hope it helps bring a bright spot to your day! If you have any future Hey Landyn questions, be sure to drop ’em in a comment below!
Hi, so first, I just love you. You are so real and you tell it like it is! Question on sheets- bedsheets and cookie/baking sheets. Which brands do you recommend?
I love Restoration Hardware’s sheets. They are really thin and like butter. I love ‘em, love’ em, love ‘em! I was recently introduced to the Redland Cotton sheets after they sent us some. They are a soft, cotton hotel sheet. Target does a great job too! As far as baking sheets, I love these gold baking sheets from Target. I was making a pretty choice, but they are also really great!
Do you do 16 hour intermittent fasting everyday of the week or do you give yourself a break on the weekends or special occasions? Thinking about trying it to see if it is something my body can adjust to. I LOVE breakfast and my morning coffee with creamer so it’s definitely going to be a challenge.
This is something I started about 6 weeks ago. I have my coffee in the morning and don’t eat until 12-1pm. It takes a little getting used to. I have a cup or two of coffee in the morning–I don’t worry about adding creamer, I want to live my best life! So I add a little almond milk, a little splash of peppermint mocha and break my fast at lunch and then eat dinner and don’t eat after that. That begins my window and I don’t eat again until the morning. It’s been working pretty well, keeping me where I want to be. Which has come in handy with my knee since I’ve had to pull back on my exercise and watch what I’m putting in my mouth. No Oreos!
What can you recommend for a friend suffering a loss?
This is such a hard one. You don’t know what to say, don’t know what to do. The biggest thing I’ve learned with friends that have gone through things like this is just be there for them. Everyone is there initially, but then moves on. Checking in on them periodically. Little random acts of kindness to let them know you’re thinking of them. It’s important to be a shoulder for them. I love making meals of course. have some recipe ideas for bringing a dish to a friend here. I have a friend here in Nashville who has dealt with a lot of loss in her life and she always wanted to do something for people in similar situations and created a company called The Loss Box. They are curated and absolutely beautiful. It’s something very special to send to someone to let them know you’re thinking about them and they are put together really nice.
I’d love to hear what your favorite jeans are!
Love the Madewell High waist high rise 9” black skiinnies. I’ve always been a fan of AG. All of their jeans have always fit me well. I’m definitely a fan of the high waist. I was just cleaning out my closet and came across a couple of pairs that weren’t and was like YEAH, BYE. I just like the feeling of being able to tuck it all in. I love the look too. H&M makes a great shaping denim. Recently rediscovered them. They just put everything in the right place. At my store, I sell Pistola white skinnies in white. So cute. My absolute favorite is the Gwendoline skinny by Vici. LOVE. Absolutely love. $40 and even less with the LWL25 on Sundays! My favorites are here.
