CLOSED! Tuesday Tea with Me

Hi guys! I thought I'd do another Tuesday Tea with Me, right now (9:50pm PST) for the next hour!  You guys know the drill right now - join in! 

For any new people to my blog here is the way it works:

Starting right now and running for the next hour, I will be answering questions and giving advice to any comments left below (on this post). Try to limit your comment to one question. 

Make sure to skim through the last couple tea parties questions before deciding what to ask... one question per person please! Last time I got a lot of repeat questions so if you read through those you can get lots of answers and then ask me one that you haven't seen me answer yet, so in a way you get more than one answered!


Just like last time it will be first come, first served. I will try to answer them as best I can! 

Make sure you click that little "Join this site" button on my sidebar, as shown here, in order to be able to comment! :) Talk to you soon!

  2. Do you have any recommendations for which tea that will help me sleep better?

    1. I love "sleepytime tea" - lots of brands make a version and you can find it at the grocery store! Anything caffeine free and calming, (I prefer camomile) is perfect for before bed. It will just help you unwind!

    2. Yogi Bedtime tea is my absolute favorite! It's chamomile but has a hint of mint and is naturally a tiny bit sweet. It's very soothing and relaxing for me.

    1. ooh goodness I follow so many! I really like Cupcakes and Cashmere and Peace, Love, Shea :)

  4. I don't really have a question but I just wanted to say, I've watched you and Blair for over 5 years now. Both of you girls have grown into such lovely, hardworking ladies. You are doing a great job. Keep up the good work. And I'm very impressed you gave up Diet coke. Tea is where it's at!! :)

  5. Elle! If you were to write a book about a social issue, what would it? Totes deep question!

    1. Probably about stopping hate crimes :) Or bullying in general!

      Delete
    2. Bullying/Hate crime. That's a good one. People should realize that even mere words can hurt more than sometimes physical injury. With physical injury, once the wound is healed and the pain is gone, you kinda forget. But with mean, hurtful and hateful words, you constantly remember it and you are bruised again over and over just like when you heard the first time.

  6. Do you and Blair ever plan on moving back to Tennessee? Do you still run glitzy-glam? :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Neither of us will probably ever live there again full time, but we go back to visit our family. And yes - Glitzy-Glam has its own staff and my mom overlooks it!

    2. whats the best & worst part of living in LA? I've always wanted to live in CA, but not sure I want to be in such a celebrity-driven place... plus earthquakes are scary!

      Delete
    3. The celeb thing doesn't get in the way of anything - you hardly ever see them anyway. And when you do you normally barely notice because they are just walking around like everyone else. Earthquakes are definitely scary but we haven't had one in a little while (knock on wood!!). The best? Weather, Views, the ocean AND the mountains at the same time - gorgeous, tons to do. Worst? Traffic. LOL!

    1. Running errands - I wear something cute. Lounging at home - yoga pants and a tank normally :)

    1. Like a clampless one? I have a clamp one from Hot Tools that I like better than any of the clampless ones - it's so much quicker! But I love my Nume one for clampless

      Delete
    2. Yeah i was thinking to buy a clampless one and I am also probably going to get one from Nume but I get confused on whether I should get the ceramic or titanium one, do you know what is best for hair? Side note.... you are awesome!

      Delete
    3. I think they are both equally good - I don't even know the benefits of titanium... but I know ceramic is good for your hair!

      Delete
    4. Thank you!! This helps! Have a goodnight and rest of your tea.... if that makes sense..!... :)

  11. I sent you a comment but I don't think it went through! Anyways I wrote that I love your videos! and I feel like in a way you're like my big sister! Haha. You should do more getting ready with me videos because I have similar coloring to you and I'm always looking for a new makeup look!

    As for my question, I'm thinking of opening a youtube channel but I'm a bit nervous! I don't want people to think I'm a bad beauty guru or something!!! and I'm nervous about the negative comments people leave on videos. How do you deal with negative comments like that?! and do you have any tips or suggestions to someone who wants to start youtubing?!

    Thanks! Love ya! XXX <3

    1. You just have to go into it knowing that you WILL get mean comments. Everyone does - theres no way around it. That being said, YouTube is amazing and you should totally do it if you are wanting to. The positives WAY outweigh the negatives! It's an amazing community :) Do it!! And if you do tweet me so I can check it out!

    2. Thanks Elle! <3 And I will!!!! :)

    1. I don't wear MAC foundation, so I wouldn't know, but it's marketed as a "stay in place" foundation and yes - it lasts ALL day! It's really good stuff - I love it!

  15. What part of LA do you live in and do you like it there or is there a part you would eventually rather move to?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I don't want to say what part I live in for privacy reasons, but I do really love it! It has everything, and is close to places I need to go to a lot, so it's perfect. Plus, there's tons of hole in the wall places nearby that I can walk to. I probably won't move for awhile :)

    1. I don't have any major wishes that I can think of, but a little one would be if my condo could just be FINISHED already! I just want it to be a home already!

  22. Will we be seeing makeup/fashion blog posts from you anytime? Also, will you be doing any BBW hauls for the fall, maybe for FallThatGlitters?!

    p.s your IHeartYouCoffee blog layout inspired me to work on my own blog :3 (www.mybeautyhive.blogspot.ca)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Definitely to the BBW hauls! I was just bopping around on their site actually. As for Makeup/Fashion - yes, once I start shopping again! Ever since moving into my new place I've been really careful with spending money!

      Delete
    2. Yay for late night chatting & thanks for replying ^_^

      Funny that you were on the BBW site, I'm always telling my friends how psychic I am LOL!

      Totally understand the saving money/independent woman scene but it's such a good feeling to be on your own.

      p.s: Sorry if I sounded spammy w my blog, I just really love your lifestyle blog & it inspires me <3

  33. Elle, is it weird that I totally feel like you are a long lost sister. I just love that you are a 25 year old adult and it makes me feel less silly for spending hours on YouTube watching videos!
    Anyways, if you could live in any other city, which one would it be? Say New York so we can be best friends! :)

  38. Heya Elle!

    I'm a fellow beauty blogger, but not as successful as you yet! :) I really want some advice on how to get my blog more popular. I mean, I've gotten over 300 views last month, but what can I do to get even more this month? Also, I'm moving into my first one bedroom apartment with my fiance. It's kinda small but affordable. We don't really have an furniture. Do you know of a brand that has affordable quality furniture? Thanks!

  39. Hey Elle!!!
    I LOVE YOU!!!! I have been watching all your videos for years and I finally get to meet you and Blair when you come to Atlanta!!! I am so excited I have been counting the days down say Hi to pinecone for me!!!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Hi Elle,
    wouldn't it be way more useful for you if you could just start and talk about the ingredients lists of the products you talk about in reviews and stuff like that? It sounds rethorical, but it's not! It just gets along very well with you being a pretty "scientifical" beauty guru :) Love you!

  42. This is such a good idea, I'm so sad I missed it but I guess you do them regularly. I will definitely try this on my beauty and fashion blog frostedplanet.blogspot.com xx

  43. Elle,

    I have been watching you literally from day one! Over the past couple of weeks, I have been re-devouring your old videos...especially the one involving your saga of the icy steps and hill of your old college home. That leads me to ask you a question regarding a social life after college. Now that you are out of school, what is your number one way of meeting new people? I basically talk to every person I encounter, but I find myself concerned about making strong friendships after graduation this spring, when I will be in yet another new location, etc. Bars are overrated in my opinion, as I already work in one, hahaha.

    Also, THANK YOU for existing. Actually, you will have to pass that along to Dr. and Mrs. Fowler ;)

    Have a great day,

    - J. :)

  44. And yes, I realize that the comments are no longer part of the "tea party," but I figured I would ask anyhow :)
