Fall Break with Goldie

Hi everyone! Thanks for being here. I had Goldie home with me the past two weeks for fall break. It was really nice to reconnect with her. Avery and Poppy did not have fall break, so having Gold around all day reminded me of the days before she started kindergarten, which I miss. We went to Arizona for a few days to visit family, we celebrated both she and Jeff’s birthdays, and we just hung out. I love having my kids around. If I thought I could properly home school them or if they even wanted to be homeschooled, I totally would.

We have some exciting things planned coming up soon and I need your questions. Ask us anything…well almost anything;). If you have a question for me, Jeff, any of the kids..ask us! It can be about family, fashion, home, food, workouts, schedule, anything you’ve ever wondered or wanted to ask. You can leave a comment here and also on Instagram. These questions will be used for a few upcoming projects.

It’s finally feeling like fall around here! Goldie and I wore our favorite zip-ups around town. You can see more below. If you are looking for the best pair of black denim that fits like premium denim, I wear the  pair linked below all the time! Lisa Allen wearing Rebecca Taylor, Madewell and Golden Goose with Goldie wearing Ivivva and Uggs in Encinitas, California

Have a great day!

    How are you keeping your hair so thick postpartum? I’m 4 months postpartum with our second baby & going through the massive hair shed right now!

    What do you think of Keto diet? I’m a person that doesn’t exercise. I’m on my feet 6am to 2pm. Im over everything once I’m off. I know exercise is the “right” way but I’m super lame. Any secret ways to lose weight without exercise?

    Are you naturally thin? How are you so tiny? Which child is the biggest trouble maker? Who is the most sensitive? Who is the funniest? Do they see their dad? What do you like about living in California? You’re my favorite blogger cause you show the most genuine/real stuff!!!

    You may have been asked this a ton of times already, but was it hard for you to put yourserlf out there to date again, especially with 3 kids? I only ask because I have 3 young kids and am a bit scared to date. Thanks so much! I love your style !

    Lisa! Can I just say how much I love your blog/kids/home and overall vibe?! I have a couple questions. My first is how do you afford living where you do?! And with 4 involved girls? Do you or Jeff have family money? Do you make enough with both of your jobs? Both? Do you have any tips? I don’t mean to sound insensitive or offensive I am just wondering because you have a more expensive lifestyle with your cost of living and it is my DREAM to live in a really nice part of SoCal one day and raise a big family. 🙂 Also, favorite clothing stores for you and have you ever thought about doing a house tour blog?!

    If Ozzy had been a boy, what would you have named him? Any other fave girl names that were close seconds to Ozzy?

    Can you tell us the inspiration behind your kids’ names? They’re all so unique and pretty!

    Would love to see more photos of your new home! Also curious what your schedule is like as a mom who works from home. How do you get up so early for workouts, what time do you go to bed? Also more about how you and Jeff met! Just love your family and this blog ?

  • Reply Lexie November 7, 2017 at 10:55 AM

    Do you and Jeff drink alcohol ever? I would love to know your wine or cocktail of choice! Or maybe you don’t and thats how you stay so fit–haha. Would also love to know any money saving hacks or tips you developed over the couple years of being a single parent. If you could only use 3 products for your face what would they be?! retinol? vitamin c? quick go-to but HEALTHY dinner meals..so many q’s haha

  • Reply Nik November 8, 2017 at 5:23 AM

    How would you describe each of your girl’s personalities? And did they get along with Jeff right away?

  • Reply Kelly November 8, 2017 at 10:04 AM

    Since launching this website are you looking to pull away from Lunchpails and Lipstick and put your focus more on your own website (Salty Lashes?) Lunchpails and Lipstick seems to have changed such as: the two of you never travel together anymore or do your joint “best friends” (from your jackets) posts! Just curious if we will find more here and on your own personal IG, than L&L?

      I’ve been wondering the same thing! though i love being able to see you in more than one spot, Lisa….i can’t get enough of your amazing family:)

    Hi Lisa! Who made your wedding dress? It was so gorgeous!

  • Reply Maggie November 9, 2017 at 5:13 PM

    How did Jeff get his wood working business started? I love all his stuff! Does he do that full time now? My husband has recently gotten in to wood working and making furniture from inspiration pics i find online or in antique shops. Just wondering how he got started gaining clients so that he could make it his full time job.

    Hi Lisa,

    Question: On all your blog posts, do you buy all the outfits yourself or does the companies send you clothes for free and you post about them? Besides getting a TON of free products and clothes, do you get paid to do the blog? How many days do you work-out? Can you please do a post on your closet Jeff designed, I am dying to see it! Love following you from day 1. Big hugs!!

    Hi, just started reading your blog and I must say, you have inspired me! I am a twin mom to four year old girls and I feel daily i am looking my mind!! Don’t get me wrong, they are the best thing ever and I love them dearly, but there are times i wish I had a live in Nanny or a cleaning lady. I tend to complain and after seeing your lifestyle you have motivated me to keep going, aka preparing meals, cleaning, getting everyone dressed, scheduling play dates etc. I would love to hear how you keep it so put together? Like what is your day to day routine with the girls? Is it ever hard for you at times? Thanks for the inspiration!!

    Love your style as you and L&L are my absolute favorite fashion bloggers! How do you respond to your followers that recognize you in public? I am known to walk up to a celebrity and introduce myself as a fan.
    Thanks April

    How do you balance Instagram vs. reality when your job is Instagram based? I find it hard to not be influenced by the false reality that social media can relay, and often take breaks from Instagram when I find myself unawarely comparing myself.

  • Reply Hanna November 15, 2017 at 2:21 PM

    I want to know about the rules in your house around social media for kids! It’s a constant discussion with my family, immediate and extended. About what age is appropriate and what social media children can have! What rules/expectations do you set for the girls and how do you enforce it? Obviously, these types of “rules” differ depending on the kind of kid(s) you’re dealing with! But would love to know how it works in your family! xoxo
