I welcome you my first blog guest post: Krissy from Pretty Wee Things. A blog about health, fashion and beauty and of course her little man!
The wonderful part of starting a blog is joining a community of other bloggers. We all completed an online course at The Clever Cookie School of Blog some months ago and throughout the 4 weeks we supported and encouraged each other, getting to know one another and reading each other's blog.
So it was through the school I met Krissy of Pretty Wee Things. A lovely mum of a little boy, newly married to a dashing man (you must check out her stunning wedding photos!) She completed a Bachelor of Science honours in Psychology and also a Makeup Artistry certificate. She is into health, fashion and beauty. Krissy has a some delicious recipes which are healthy and worth checking out too.
Let's get to know Krissy a bit more...
1. What inspired you to start your blog journey?
My son…not literally, but becoming a mum meant I had to somewhat change the way I was used to living (like endless shopping trips, super long showers, white clothing). I wanted to still feel like “me” while being the best mum I could be, so along came Pretty Wee Things. My blog is my space to share the things that still matter to me, like fashion and beauty and health (and my awesome little man), even if my “normal” has changed.
2. What is your favourite post you've written? (Link please)
I have to say that I LOVE seeing others enjoy my posts, so my favourite posts so far are probably the ones that seem to be enjoyed by most. Our wedding day was a clear winner, but then who doesn’t like weddings! And my healthy bliss balls have been a long-standing blog pleaser! I always find people come back to that one!
3. Top three health tips for summer.
Stay hydrated with LOTS OF WATER!
Enjoy the summer fruit, it’s not bad for you!
Remember sunscreen (or better yet, buy a day cream that has SPF) and good quality sunglasses
4. What essentials do you carry in your bag?
My water bottle, always a lipstick (I love MAC hug-me at the moment), concealer (I’m using Rimmel), Elizabeth Arden 8 hour lip balm, my inhaler (asthma, kind of a massive essential), baby wipes and nappies. These days my bag doubles as a baby bag!
5. Three make-up items you can't live without?
The Kit eyebrow gel pen in Dark Taupe, Kora Organics by Miranda Kerr tinted day cream, and Mascara!
6. What is one tradition your family has at Christmas time?
Growing up, our Santa always had a hole in his sack and would leave a trail of lollies wherever he had been. I loved the excitement of waking up on Christmas morning and following the trail of candy to find our presents, or to see that he had visited our animals. I absolutely will continue that tradition, although I may need to think of a healthy alternative to candy! Any suggestions welcome!
7. What is on your Christmas list?
I haven’t even thought about myself for Christmas this year. To be totally honest, I would love some new homeware…some cushions and a new giant entrance mirror!
Thanks for having me on Adore Re Mi!!!
It's a real pleasure having you on board at Adore Re Mi. By the way I love your Christmas tradition!
We will see more of Krissy in the near future, I'll be asking more on her beauty, fashion and psychology views. Please check more of Krissy on Facebook
