But I have some other super cool news to share with you! If you follow me on Twitter or like Ma Nouvelle Mode on Facebook you might have seen me talking about some fun and exciting things coming in the new year. Well, there are quite a few and I am bursting at the seams to tell you about them. Unfortunately, I can't reveal them all, so I thought, why not just one?
Do you remember my friend Christie who posted with me a few days back? She rocked some pretty hot red tights and most recently showed us a lovely and comfy Disneyland outfit. Well, Christie is going to be hangin' around these parts more often and is going to be the other half of Ma Nouvelle Mode! We have been brainstorming and brainstorming to bring you the best of the best!
This might not mean as much to you now as it does to me, but trust me, it will. Christie is one of the most stylish, beautiful (inside & out), fun, outgoing, clever, godly women I know and I know that she has a ton to bring to the blog. Without further adieu, I have put together a little interview with Christie so you can get to know her a bit more.
Tell everyone here a little bit more about yourself!
Hey! I am a Southern California girl born and raised. I met my husband while attending college in Indiana. We have been married 7 1/2 years and we have two amazing-ly crazy kids. I am very outgoing, I cry easily (animals, children, wars, and widows are all movie topics that have been banned in my presence). I love fiercely and I can be a little too fiery at times. Singing is a normal part of my life and my kids have learned that impromptu dance parties and singing princess songs on the top of our lungs (yes even my 2 year old son) make the day just a little bit better. Needless to say my husband just enjoys being entertained!
What makes you excited about being a part of this blog?
Oh my goodness I am SOOO excited about being part of this blog for so many reasons! First of all, with two little kids I sometimes forget to take time for myself (can you relate?) This will be my motivation to get back to what I love (and what my husband loves about me!) Secondly, I love working with Natalia. She has become a true kindred spirit and we are going to be a fabulous team! Finally, and most importantly, I know my identity is in Christ Jesus. I know that he made me with the personality, passions, and skills that make me who I am and that He loves me this way. I am excited for this amazing opportunity to focus my creative energies. I feel blessed by this blog and I hope to be a blessing to others.
What kinds of things do you think you will be blogging about?
1) Fashion (of course!) focusing on the attainable fashion that ANYBODY can have and feel amazing and adorable. You won't be seeing a ton of "look at my new Jimmy Choo shoes" because I can't afford Jimmy Choo! So let's figure out how to look awesome, and still be respectful of our bank account and our priorities (which in my case is making sure my family does not go naked and starving).
2) Entertaining/Homey comforts- I love to cook, I love to entertain, I love to decorate my house. All of these things don't happen as often as I would like (in a perfect world). But as often as I can, I will be blogging about my love for this area of my life.
3) This one is hard to explain, but let me do my best: I am going to be regularly encouraging all the lovely women reading this blog to use their feminine powers to ENCOURAGE other women, to use their words to BUILD UP not TEAR DOWN and to be PROACTIVE when cattiness ensues. I have seen and taken note that one of the biggest strengths this blog and all of its followers have is kindness! I have been so impressed! Because you all know what normally takes place when you get a group of women together! Let's make this what sets us apart from other women, yes!?
Describe your style.
wooo! This one is hard! I feel like "eclectic" would sum me up the best, haha. I would mostly say that I like to feel soft and feminine. I lean more towards flowy (sp?) than tight and I am drawn to vintage pieces. However, I own my fair share of tight black dresses and short skirts. So maybe, as you get to know me, you can give me a title for my style?? I would love to put a label on it! Something crazy like: Boho-romantic-classic chic HA!
Anything else you would like to share?? ;)
There is way too much I want to tell you! So I will say no more right now. But make sure you check out my post tomorrow and I will share a secret with you! Thank you so much for welcoming me! And I am so excited to be a part of this community of women!
