Please tell us a little about yourself.
I am a blogger and vlogger on Let’s Talk Mommy and also an author of my first novel, “When Love & Culture Collide.” I am a mother to a 5 year old son and 4 year old daughter whom keep me busy while working full-time from home. We are constantly renovating our home to match the trends and styles of the seasons. Next to writing about our family life, home interiors and food styling are huge passions of mine.
Why did you decide to start a blog? What do you enjoy about blogging?
I first started blogging to document our family life as expats so that our family and friends in America could still feel apart of our every day life and our family journey from afar. I also wanted a writing outlet after my first novel was out, I didn’t have the time with a one year old and a newborn baby to finish my second novel but I still was eager to keep writing. Blog posts seemed like the perfect opportunity to write in small bursts while taking care of my two little ones.
I love that I get to write everyday for a job, that I can do it at home around my kids routines and schedules, and that I am apart of an amazing community with so many like-minded people that constantly inspire me and motivate me.
What is your favorite type of flooring and why?
In our last house, we had all carpet. I longed for hardwood floors and tile. When we moved we decided to get a high quality laminate for durability and price for our growing family. We now have a mix of laminate, tile, and vinyl flooring in our house and few rooms have carpet anymore.
I would love to have the entire house free of carpet. It’s easier to keep clean and I think it makes a room look bigger without carpet. I am also huge fan of throw rugs.
Do you follow any other blogs for inspiration? If so, which ones?
There are so many amazing bloggers out there in each niche that I love following. Some of my favorite interior and lifestyle bloggers are Katy from Apartment Apothecary with her outstanding home style & decorating, Jen from Love Chic Living with her how to guides to interiors, and Lucy from Capture by Lucy with her creativity to every space in her home. These are just a few that I lust over but there are so many out there to be inspired by.
Can you explain a recent project or post you’ve been working on?
I have been putting the final touches on my sitting room makeover. It had been a dumping ground and an empty space for the kids to crawl around as babies for so long, now it’s a beautiful room for adults only. Here is a sneak peak…
