Read on because she may just be giving you the chance to win one of your very own! Awesomeness!





Isn't it gorgeous!



___________________________________________________________________________

Hi everyone!.  












If you're new here, read this post, and this post to get a good understanding on how much I love my bloggy AND real life BFF Em.  

Ok, back now?.   As you can see, I love Em, and I am so thrilled to be here doing a Q&A for you all, and I have a surprise at the end ;)

Q. What motivated you to start blogging?
I actually began blogging as a way to keep in touch with my family back in Canada.  If you read my blog then you know I am a Toronto Canadian girl that now lives in Melbourne Australia with Hubs and my 2 little girls.  

Q. Were you nervous about taking the leap and actually starting your blog?
Definitely!.  I was worried that noone would read it and it would end up being a waste of my time.  But as it turned out to be very therapeutic, and i've met and made some amazing friends along the way.  

Q.  What is your vision for your blog and shop?
I'd Love to be able to stay home full-time with my business.  I'm still learning and trying new things.  My next project is to purchase a sewing machine and get into it.  I'm dying to try sewing!
Q.  What does your husband things of your blogging?
Hubs is still kinda confused.  He doesn't really get it.  He asks "Why do people want to see what you're wearing?".  He's supportive but doesn't really get it.  Just like I don't get why he does some of the things he does.  LOL

Q.  Who or what has been the greatest influence on you as a person and as a blogger?
The greatest influence as a person would be my mom.  She's my rock.  I miss her terribly.  As a blogger would be Ashley from Little Miss Momma.  She is who sort of influenced me to start a blog.  

Q.  Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
That's a hard question!.  I see us with a 3rd child and hopefully working from home full-time on my business and blogging.  I still see us living in Australia, and hopefully taking a few vacations.  

Q. How do you like living in Australia?.  What are the biggest differences that you have noticed between here and Canada?
I like living here.  I obviously don't like not having my family close by, but I survive.  Theres a lot of differences for me - the first and most evident one would be that I haven't seen snow in 2 years!.  I'm used to shovelling my way out of the driveway everyday for 5 months of the year and here it doesn't get below zero.  Secondly, would be the food.  It's so different.  I miss the restaurant chains.  

Q.  What is your favorite charity and/or cause?.  Why?
I donate to Breast Cancer a lot and do the walks for cancer.  My mother in law is a breast cancer survivor.

Q. Fast Favorites:
Singer?  Right now, Lady Antebellum
Actor?  Rachel McAdams
Book? Movie?  The Notebook
TV Show?  True Blood or Greys Anatomy
Color? Pink 
Flower?  Daisies
Place?  Home
Season?  Spring
Perfume?  Hypnotic Poison by Christian Dior

And Em's hubby had a few questions for me:

Q. Is Maple Syrup better in Canada?
Yes, it is.  Although in Safeway there is a Canadian Maple Syrup from Canada and I only buy that one.

Q.  Do you like Ice Hockey?
YES!.  Of Course!.  My cousins play Hockey and my Uncles Coach it, so I have been to many many hockey games.  I'm not a sports fan, but I would love to watch a good game of hockey!

Now - onto the surprise!!!!

OH my gosh that white one is gorgeous!! I love those maple candies, my friend orders hers on-line by the case. They were so yummy. I'm sure the syrup is much better too than what we have in the supermarkets. :)
