Simplicity Series: Paige Yingst

January 18, 2016

Hi Everyone! My name is Paige Yingst, and the Digital Marketing Manager for Gray Malin. Perhaps you've noticed Emily's print of 'I AM BUSY' and thought to yourself, gosh I love that? Well, Gray's the fine art photographer behind that photograph and so many more incredible images and lifestyle products. 
I have worked in Public Relations and Marketing within the fashion industry for many years, so it has been an exciting transition into a fine art photography & lifestyle brand, especially one that is so joyful like Gray Malin. I mean, who doesn't love looking at images that instinctively make them smile? Also, to make it that much better, Gray and the rest of the team whom I work with are incredible. I'm grateful for this as I believe a positive work environment is truly valuable for overall happiness, especially considering how much time we all spend at work. 
What’s your favorite beauty secret? 
I love Mario Baduscu Seaweed Cleansing Soap for my face but most importantly, I've been wearing SPF 15 on my face since I was 13.
What’s your favorite go-to outfit for a quick polished look? 
High Waste Skinny Jeans in a dark wash or black. I love the brand Mother. Then, a solid colored blouse and a classic, yet with a bit of a wink at whimsy, shoes like these by Sonia Rykiel.
What’s your favorite quick-prep dinner for your family? 
I have celiac disease, which means I'm gluten free..for real. I love Trader Joe's brown rice pasta, so a go-to meal is grilled chicken with some fresh peppers tossed in a pesto sauce with the pasta. Then, maybe a side salad. The whole thing takes 20-30 minutes beginning to end to make, which fits my schedule perfectly.
Tell us your favorite at-home date night. 
Try out a fun and perhaps a bit challenging recipe, where I'm the Sous Chef. I'll chop and mince whatever needs done while sipping wine, snacking and "supervising" the rest of the meal. 
Tell us your favorite Instagram account to follow and why? 
I'm a bit biased but I really do love following @graymalin, I also enjoy my dear friend and talented blogger Jordan of @ramshackleglam for recipes, DIY tips and general lifestyle shares, then lastly, I am kind of obsessed with @thedogist because...dogs.
What tradition or routine is important to you? 
It's simple but I think it's important to always make your bed. Even if everything else is a bit scattered from the week, having the bed made somehow makes me feel like I'm not a total mess!
What’s in your purse? 
Wallet, Cell, Keys, Burts Bees Chapstick, and a few random lipsticks and glosses. Specifically, I've been enjoying a flashback to my high school days with the reentry of Black Honey by Clinque for the lips...dating myself there!
What’s your favorite on-the-go lunch during a busy day? 
Brown Rice - Trader Joe's has great 3 minute microwave bags, turkey meat, chopped tomatoes, & avocado. This is assuming I remember to have lunch, sometimes the day just flies and I look up and it's well into the afternoon.
What can you not leave home without?
 My cell phone. I'm addicted. I admit it.
