Happy Fri-yay friends! This week we get to hang out with Michelle Nemis, from the blog North South Blonde. Michelle is down-to-earth, inspirational, and has blog posts covering a wide variety of topics like weight loss, home decor, recipes, homemaking, and more.
What is your favorite app?
The Treehouse App is awesome for saving my girls’ favourite TV shows that they can watch on long drives without using any internet data.
What song best describes your blog/brand?
I love the song “Smoke Break” by Carrie Underwood because sometimes a mama just needs a glass of wine and some down time.
How would your best friend describe you?
Inspirational. It took me a long time to start my blog and I finally did it. I was worried what people would think, but I came to realize that my story and my advice could help at least one mommy out there to not feel alone.
What blogging post are you most proud of? Why?
I would have to go with my post “When a Mother Tells Me”. It’s all about the struggles of being a new mother, gaining acceptance from others, and the pressures of meeting society’s standards of what a perfect mother should be. I talk about how important it is just to get through the day doing what’s best for our kids with what we have because we only have two hands and shouldn’t overexert ourselves, we can only do so much.
If you could be any celebrity, who would you be?
Jennifer Lopez. Who doesn’t want to be Jennifer Lopez. She had twins and looks more fabulous than ever at 46!
Describe your blog using only three words.
Inspirational. Bright. Inviting.
What book(s) are you currently reading?
It’s so hard for me to get into a good read these days because I’ve been so busy starting up my blog and mothering two toddlers that are 15 months apart. If I had to recommend a good book it would be: The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind by Joseph Murphy, Ph.D, D.d. It teaches you about the power you have over every day outcomes, how to train your mind and how to stay positive. I think it’s very handy for women everywhere who go through postpartum issues and it even helps with how to stay on the right path when parenting your children.
What makes your blog unique?
I think that my blog offers a little bit of everything for everyone. Whether you are struggling with weight loss, looking for easy recipes for the whole family, home decor, homemaking tips, or just inspiration in general. I want to help others with as much as I know.
If we were at Starbucks right now what drink would you order?
Believe it or not, my first choice is a medium double double at Tim Horton’s for $1.70 . But when I’m in the city and willing to splurge, I would have to go with a Vanilla Bean Crème Frappuccino. 😉
What else would you like us to know about you or your blog?
I’m new and I’m learning. I’m making mistakes, but I’m growing. I love all of the feedback and positive comments and I would like to thank everyone and all of my mommy followers for their love and support.
