What I…. Vicki from I Want That

This week I am excited to be featuring Vicki Sleet from I Want That as my “What I…” interviewee. Vicki’s beautiful blog is a showcase of all things design – especially the details! It’s all about making our lives prettier, more interesting, more colourful and more inspired. Vicki loves sharing the lives of interesting people and great places. Apart from being a brilliant blogger of 2 blogs (the other being I Want That Wedding), she is also a freelance magazine journalist and editor.

Here are her answers to the “What I…” questions

Is that finding your passion is essential to life on this earth.
I know that I have met my match in The Captain.
I know that one day I will be a teacher.
I know that I need to find more balance and that this year is my year to do it.
I know that greens are good for you but sometimes Strawberry Whirls are even better.
I know that fabrics and paint colours and pretty things don’t change the world but they can make it feel like a better place.
I spend too much time online (refer to balance above) and I am more creative and efficient when I tune out more often.

I love seeing the sea every morning when I wake up.
The Captain obvs! His girls and Mr Cat.
Me-time. Sometimes to the detriment of me-and-The-Captain-time.
Weekend afternoon naps.
Peanut butter on toast with a smear of Bovril added to it.
Bowls (I have an obsession).
Colour in my home and in my wardrobe.
Stationery supplies.
Making lists.
Anything rose scented but especially Crabtree & Evelyn Evelyn Rose bath gel.
Downton Abbey.
Finding a bargain.

Daily: dailymail.co.uk (a guilty pleasure), interiors mags and blogs, biographies at bedtime

More Le Creuset pots – I bought myself a yellow one last year and absolutely love cooking in it
A beautiful rug for our lounge and a deep buttoned round velvet ottoman
To be fit again
A for-life customised Missibaba handbag
A way to stop Mr Cat from shredding my couch
A waistline that stays the same
To go back to Greece this year

Sunscreen religiously. I wish I’d heeded that advice sooner.

To live more consciously, to cook more and spend more time tuning out.

Thanks so much Vicki for taking time out from your hectic schedule to take part in this series. It is such a treat to interview the author of one of my favourite blogs!

Kathryn Rossiter

Kathryn is a South African lifestyle blogger and mom of 2 who has been blogging daily for over 9 years! She writes about travel, health, beauty, fashion, decor and family... but not food (unless it's food she's eaten made by someone else) as she is a hopeless cook. She only wakes up early for 2 things... a red-eye flight to somewhere exotic and early morning game drives. She has just finished an extensive home renovation and would prefer to never see another box again. She's never met a chocolate or glass of bubbles that she didn't like!

  1. this was such a nice read – Vicki is one of those people that I really admire – she is completely dedicated to her blogs. Hers was the first interiors blog we found and have followed it each day( except for when I was on my holiday breaks). And – I enjoy reading her blog as much today as I did at the start. I met her towards the end of last year as well. Nice.
