It’s time for another interview 🙂 Today I will be introducing SewPetiteGal a.k.a SPG. Some bloggers may already know SewPetiteGal for her DIY projects and her fashion OOTDs. Just recently becoming a mum with a little SPG she still manages to do DIY projects which I love – very creative and doable.
So onto the questions :
1. Tell us what your blog is about and what inspired you to start blogging?
I was inspired by both petite and craft blogs. When I first started blogging, I focused most of my craft time on sewing. Specifically, on making clothes inspired by items at my favorite stores. Today, I’ve expanded to jewelry making and knitting (most recently). I also like to share my shopping adventures and get advice on OOTDs.
2. How do you choose what you blog about?
Generally, I post twice a week and try to do one craft-related post and one clothing / shopping-related post. Sometimes I wish I had a more singular focus but then I wouldn’t be true to myself.
3. Your blog has a lot of DIYs which I love – how do you come up with ideas to DIY?
I love online window shopping (Pinterest is wonderful to compile inspirations!) and browsing fashion magazines. Frequently, I’ll feel like taking a DIY approach when something is priced out of my range or I’m feeling particularly crafty that day 🙂
4. What is your favourite quote?
“Blessed are those who can laugh at themselves, for they shall never cease to be amused.” -Anonymous
This quote reminds me not to take myself so seriously.
5. Makeup, shoes, nail polish or bags?
Definitely bags! They are the only things that I’ll purchase at a retail price.
6. I have to throw in a random question – what is the scariest thing you have done?
Hmm… I went ziplining once and the very last step was to step off of a platform that was 4-5 stories above the ground. That step was quite terrifying but it was also quite a thrill! Going into natural childbirth was also scary but both turned out to be very positive experiences.
7. What’s your favourite destination to visit?
I love Hong Kong for all the food and shopping! I only wish the flight was shorter.
8. What is on your latest wish/lust list?
The Mulberry Alexa is still on my mind but I’m trying not to succumb to temptation. I would also like some kind of red leather handbag but I haven’t found the “one” yet. Maybe a red Mulberry Alexa? 😉
9. What advice do you give new bloggers who are starting out their own blogs?
I think you should always write about your interests / passions. People are most drawn in when you are being authentic.
10. Lastly, tell us something about yourself that most people wouldn’t know?
I graduated college with 2 Bachelors degrees and 2 minors because I felt like I needed to make the most of my 4 years. In the end, my current career has little to do with anything I studied 🙂
Hope you have enjoyed the interview! I always learn so much more through the interviews. Check her out 🙂 http://sewpetitegal.blogspot.com/
