You know when you stumble across a blog, and instantly fall in love with it? From the design, to the pictures, but especially the content? When the writing keeps you coming back for more, you know it's a great blog! I felt that way when I came across Classy Chaos. Pauline is a sweet mom of three children and shares my obsession and love for shopping. Another mom who loves to shop as much as me, and who will also salivate over a pair of shoes... sigh!
This is my second interview with one of my favourite bloggers - my first was with the ever so fabulous McMommy.
And so... the interview:
Where is your favourite place to shop?
This could be an entire blog post in itself for me! I like to buy quality staple items that last a long time from super nice stores and sprinkle in some trendy seasonal things from normal stores. You can see me jump from a Saks Fifth Avenue to a H&M in one day. Both stores I'm head over stilettos in love with.
When you shop, is it a beautiful experience, like it is for me, in the sense that, when you're shopping, even the air you're breathing is better? I get high when I shop, seriously. Are you the same?
Yes. The angels sing and the skies part, when I slip into something perfect.
What is your most favourite pair of shoes?
Hands down my first pair of Louboutins. They are an open peep toe heel in a nude color that make my legs just go on forever. See here. And the July 4th 2009 USWeekly just announced that nude color pumps are the newest rage as they length the legs. Heh. I told my readers that in 2008!
What is the best part about being a mom?
Sloppy kisses, out-of-tune love songs, scribbled portraits, holding a sticky hand and enjoying all the perfect imperfections of their love for me.
Have you perfected the bedtime ritual?
Mine or theirs? Heh. I guess the answer is the same... nope. When I was a new mom I took much better care of the children and myself. Now, there are nights where all of us might go to bed with chlorine still damp in our hair after a glorious and exhausting day at the pool. I have learned to not sweet the small things as much and enjoy my time with them in a stress free way. Somedays that means no bath.
What are your tricks to keeping sane while driving long distance with children in tow?
As God is my witness and my husband is the dentist, we feed them lots of things that they normally don't get at home. Fruit snacks, chips, gum, candy and juices keep them busy while they color, watch movies, and play games. As long as they brush their teeth well at night, the sugar doesn't harm them (too much) during a long road trip.
Are you good in the kitchen? I'm not. And I'm beginning to think I'm the only mom with no culinary skills! Help me out here... tell me you suck, too!
I. Suck! I have like four meals I can prepare in a classy way and I blogged about all of them. I am relieved to know that I am not alone.
What do you love about blogging? What made you start your blog?
My baby brother introduced me to blogging as we were living far away from each other and I had loads of crazy stories to share. At first it was just my family reading the day to day happenings and then I slowly started to gain an audience. Which turned into friends. And a community. And. I feel in love endofstory.
If we were to go shopping together, would we break for lunch?
I would love to go shopping with you, how much fun would we have? My second favorite thing after shopping is eating and I love to frequent locally family owned establishments. Preferably something ethnic like Lebanese. Nom. Nom.
Hope you enjoyed this interview, everyone!
Who should I interview next?
