We are proud to announce our first blogger interview with Joanne from Sweet Simple Day. Joanne`s blog is a place where she share her personal style, fashion obsessions and travel adventures. We fell in love with her amazing style.
TiaTeilli: Could you start by telling us a bit about yourself?
Hi. Everyone. I’m Joanne who is a housewife and a mom to hyperactive 7 yrs old boy. I love cooking, online shopping, watching reality TV shows and styling myself for every day’s need. I am quiet but gets chatty after 2 glasses of wine. I’m funny but serious. And I get so emotional when PMS kicks me. When I was a little girl, I used to play with flat paper dolls, dressing up the dolls with different paper outfit that I designed. I guess that’s how I started to find myself that I had a great interest in styling in fashion. That dressing up and down games still on until now.
TiaTeilli: Can you tell us about your blog, and what inspired you to start it?
My blog is mostly about personal fashion style for now. I used to get lots of compliments from friends or random people for what or how I was wearing. They would ask me where I got those outfits from and want to have my opinion about their outfits. They just loved the way I styled myself. Those compliments and questions inspired me to have my own blog showing other people about my style and where to get it.
TiaTeilli: How would you describe your own personal style?
Hmm, I guess I’m all over the place. I don’t think I have any one particular style. Of course, I’m in love with all the trendy items. But, I still have my old clothes from my 20’s. I love to mix new and old items together. Any style that I’m comfortable and confident that makes me feel fabulous is the style of the day.
TiaTeilli: Where do you find the inspiration for your blog posts?
My blog inspiration comes from everything that I’m related to. Right now, I just limited my blog to fashion but I want to expand it to total lifestyle blog. Recently, I love to go check out other blogs, I hate to be the copy cat but sometimes, I feel like I want to share something unique and creative. Philosopher Aristotle said “Imitation is the mother of invention” . Also, by visiting different theme blogs, I get to have better ideas and inspirations for the future blog posts.
TiaTeilli: What do you love most about blogging?
Blogging is like a dream playground to me. I was once an art student at Parsons School of Design in NYC studying graphic arts. I still don’t know why I chose graphic design over fashion. After years later, I realized that graphic design isn’t for me and I decided to take a break from school. I happened to get married and had my son. Ever since then, I devoted myself to family which is the most important thing in the world. So, blogging is my alternative dream of my love to fashion. By doing this, I feel like I am accomplishing something in the fashion industry and pursuing my dream. Whenever visitors leave comments, it means a lot to me. I really thank all of the visitors who are helping me to make one step forward to my dream come true.
TiaTeilli: Whats your favorite fashion bloger?
My favorite fashion bloggers are Michéle from the fashion fraction and Allison from styling my life. They both are beautiful, smart and stylish girls. Michéle has the greatest sense of fashion and she inspires me a lot. And Allison is just like a model who has the perfect body. Her blog covers not only fashion but also travel. I love her photos of the different places that she visited.
TiaTeilli: Where do you see your blog in the next five years?
I see my blog covering mixed categories in the future. My recent posts are mostly about fashion. But I want to travel the world and share what I’m going to see, feel and taste with other people in blog world. I also love cooking too. One day, I want to share some of my recipes.
