Greetings Babiekins readers! Today we want to introduce you to Isabel, a talented young mama who happens to be another new contributor to Babiekins Magazine blog. On most days you will find her over on Instagram sharing her lovely photos or on her personal blog talking about family and fashion. We asked Isabel a few questions and this is what she has to say.
Can you tell us a bit about yourself.
Hello. Although I love to write, I find it a bit strange to write about myself here. But, hey, let’s do this!!!
I am Isabel, a 29 year old mama from Belgium. I have a little boy named Jules (almost 3) and a babygirl named Jeanne (5 months old). I’ve been married for 3 years now to Walter. These three mean the world to me. I love being their mama and wife, but from time to time I need to get out of the house and meet my friends, who are pretty important to me too. They keep me sane and I love them for that. In 2012 I started to write a blog. I love to write, but find it quite challenging to write in English, which isn’t my mother tongue. I have a passion for fashion and love to shop, especially for the little ones. You will find out more about my little family soon!
Who is your style icon?
I am inspired by a lot of people, but someone who can’t do any wrong in my book is Kate Moss. Cliché, I know.
What song and/or band best describes you.
The Kills! For sure! Especially their songs ‘Future starts slow’ ( if i ever give you up my heart will surely fail) and ‘DNA’.
What does 9am typically look like in your house?
On the weekends 9 am means cuddle time in bed. The kids wake up around 8 and then we are all in bed together until 9 (or even 10 when we are having a lazy day) this is my favourite time of the weekend! Talking to each other and seeing how much love can fit in one bed.
Name something that is always in your handbag or purse.
Cookies (healthy ones, of course) or candy. My worst nightmare: starving to death!
Quick, you get 20 minutes to yourself, what do you do.
20 minutes. Not long enough to take a bath or shower so I’d probably check instagram/whatsapp or shop online!
Who are your favorite designers at the moment?
My favorite brands must be Acne, A.P.C, Cos and Isabel Marant. Their designs are simple yet timeless. Unfortunately, my wallet doesn’t always allow me to shop these brands.
For my kids I like TUSS, Nununu, Popupshop, Mini Rodini, Bobo Choses, Quinn + fox, Petit Bo …. and of course the Belgian Brands Morley and Gold Belgium.
Thank you Isabel for sharing! We look forward to reading your posts.
