Featured Reader: Let me introduce you to.....

La Dolce Vita

Happy Monday friends! If you haven't stopped by in a few days I just had my 1 year Blogoversary, and can hardly believe it! Please be sure to stop back over the next week as I am going to be offering specials of the day on select items in honor of my Anniversary! Monday's are always fun at La Dolce Vita since I have the pleasure of introducing you to one of my Featured Readers. I am pleased to introduce you to Meg of Kiss My Style. Megan and I became bloggy friends through a social network and boy is she a crafty gal, I just love crafty gals! Please grab a cup of coffee and get to know my friend Meg!


Name:


Megan Calpin Hughes of Plush Designs PA





Family:

Husband Rob, Daughter Hannah (21 months), Kitty Maximilian (from the movie Rebecca 1940)

How did you start blogging?

I started it as a portfolio of my work, then I added personal tidbits about our life and now it serves for work, family, promotion of handmade artists and a catalog of upcoming pieces for Kiss My Style.

If you are a parent do you have a parenting philosophy?

We teach Hannah manners, sign language, kindness, love, affection & compassion. We believe in discipline, but its very laid back. We say “no” do time outs and explain, we always ask for an apology & a kiss to make up. So far, we have lucked out and she has taken to all that we teach including our love of arts, crafts and music – what a little dancer!

You will never find me without...... my knitting needles & a skein of yarn and lip gloss

Day job:

I own Kiss My Style and design pieces for it. It currently is an online boutique that over 30 artisans sell their handmade pieces. 100% handmade – 100% fabulous! I am always looking for new artists to sell & I currently have been expanding my line into wholesale!



Favorite Stuff: Hannah’s laughs, fiber, yarn, music, the outdoors and family time.

Music: techno, spa, classical, classic rock
Food: Italian & Chinese
Tv/ Movies: True Romance, CSI LV, The Office, How I met your mother, The Mentalist
Reading: I love witchy girl humor like Jen Lancaster

If you had to wear a T-shirt with your favorite saying on it what would it be?

Kiss My Style

I love the name of my business b/c it has attitude while being cute at the same time – plus everyone always asks what it means. lol

Favorite stores to shop at:
Etsy, mom & pop shop’s and then Gap & Jcrew – I’m 5’11 and they have long lengths in classic styles that last forever!


Misc stuff from Megan:

I could knit anywhere at any time. I love fabric. Libraries smell good and the outdoors makes me happy. I love my family & my friends and I hope to give Hannah a brother. J
