Today I am so pleased to interview Fiona from Inspired Living – she is a “mommy blogger” of 2 gorgeous girls who lives in Noordhoek, Cape Town (and she also happens to be my sister-in-law!). She blogs about family, food and photography.
Here are her answers:
I am someone’s daughter, someone’s wife, someone’s mother and a woman of God. That life is too short not to live every day to the fullest.
What do I love? First and foremost my family! I am lucky to have married the love of my life & we are still living the dream after 15 years of marriage! I love life, food, my Lavazza coffee machine, good wine and pink bubbles – I guess the finer things in life! Pretty much anything creative – cooking, art, photography, fashion and writing – anything that helps me express the true me! Cape Town – the beautiful city I call home!
I am a bit of a Psychological Thriller junkie! I have read almost every book, by local author Margie Orford – at present I am reading her newest novel Gallows Hill. My other recent favourites have been – The Help by Kathryn Stockett and I don’t know how she does it by Allison Pearson. I am not big on newspapers or other news publications – I am a bit of an ostrich when it comes to bad news!
Where to begin – I guess I want what we all want – world peace, an end to all violence and suffering! To be loved and to love! To be the best darn version of me I can be! There is so much in life to “want” I guess it all comes down to priorities but if I had to make a list these would be my “wants”: A new, Nikon, wide angled camera lens – they are not cheap but maybe someone is feeling generous! (I have birthday coming up!), become a world renown photojournalist and travel the world, eat pizza in Italy, well not only pizza, pretty much anything Italian would do, washed down with plenty Italian red wine. A tad like an “Eat Pray Love” experience – with mostly eating!
This depends very much on the occasion at hand – if it’s during the school week you will find me in practical comfy stuff – jeans, shorts, t-shirts, vests depending on the weather. Pink is my favourite colour – the brighter the better! I believe shoes make an outfit – I love the wedge heels that are so trendy this season. I love dressing up and feeling sexy and sensual – so I need no excuse to get glammed up for an evening out! Locally I frequent shops like Poetry, Old Khaki and usually have success at YDE. I love shopping overseas, as I am a shorty I find it difficult to find pants and jeans that fit me in SA – I love Zara, Top Shop, River Island… in fact I feel the need for a shopping trip this year!
To be loved! To shop! To be more patient – especially with my girls! Nag less! Worry less! Laugh more! Not to care what others think about me and just be myself!
Thanks so much Fiona for sharing your answers about your life and loves! If you need a shopping partner – pick me 😉
