Thoughtful Wednesday: Chic Mamà

To keep up with my thoughtful Wednesday posts I want to feature one of my favourite bloggers. She is very thoughtful and has been here - on my blog - since the early days. She is still here giving me thoughtful insights. She is one of the girls I am glad I came across early in my blog-journey. I love reading her blog because it is girly and, yes, chic. Her name tells it, in fact she is known as Chic Mamà in the blogsphere and she blogs on InLovelyHeels.

I hope we will meet in person one day but for now she was sweet to answer my impertinent thoughtful questions, to make us (her readers) know her a little bit better. Here we go...

1. Who is the woman behind Chic Mama?

She is a young mother living everyday to the fullest. Pooh Bear is her 2 year old son. She is a dreamer, who attempts to live a happy life amidst all the downs of life. I believe just because you become a mother doesn't mean you stop being a woman. I like dressing chic and wandering through the city of Chicago with my little man.

2. Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging as a way to share the things I love: motherhood, fashion, interior design, baking. Just recently I started really focusing on giving my blog a focus and that revolves around telling the story of how I went from a city girl to a city mama (mom in Spanish) and raising my kiddo bilingual. My blog is heartfelt and it goes back between memoirs, sentiments or present stories.

3. Has blogging helped you in any way?
It has helped me develop my writing skills as well as feel connected to the blogosphere and find others like me.

4. What is your favourite health/beauty/fashion product?
I have a lot of faves. On the health department multivitamins are a must. My beauty faves are moisturizers and lipgloss. As for fashion, you might already know, I'm a shoeaholic (
her blog title tells it ;)!
Lovely heels

5. Are you doing your dream work? If no, how can you get there?

I have a job I love that's right in Downtown (I'm a sucker for the city) but it's not my dream position. I'm trying to balance life as a mom, student, woman. My biggest aspiration is to become a journalist/reporter, hence me continuing my education and pursuing my dreams.

6. Who inspires you?
Inspiration for everyday life, to live well and love life, I find in books and through blogs. (
She is a bookworm just like me :)! Inspiration to let my creative juices flow I find in blogs (sewing, baking, crafting). My inspiration to succeed is Pooh Bear and my role model is my dad.

7. Which blog posts do you love the most?
These are 2 posts I adore;
In The End He Does Have a Father
Size Doesn't Matter, Style Does

I am telling you people, blogging is like an ocean but if you find the right fish to swim with, you never regret the decision to start a blog. Just from the few questions I realise we have so much in common. To conclude I would like to use her own words "You are one of the bloggers I can mostly relate to because of your free and adventurous spirit, as well as your heart of a dreamer. =]"
Do you see, even with a screen between us, we can make good friends.

Thanks Chic Mamà for agreeing to be featured on my humble blog.
I feel the same and I hope we will cross in real life one day... :). Until then lets keep talking via the net :0.

I hope you will stop by her blog. Oh, and if you like to watch and learn some moves from her Pooh Bear click here. The little boy teaches merengue, awesome :D!
