Q&A

12.04.2010

Following up to this post, here are my Q&A answers:


Was it hard for you to conceive? I'll be in my thirties when I try to have kids which is why I'm wondering.
I honestly thought it was going to be really hard to conceive seeing as I was on birth control for over 10 years straight however it happened really quickly. Andrew and I decided that Dec. 31 2009 would be the last pill I take and then we will just go with the flow. We didn't time anything, we didn't stress over it, we barely even thought about it...we just had fun. I ended up conceiving in March. 



Any advice on how to get into fashion buying in Alberta?
I'm assuming that the road to take to be a fashion buyer in Alberta would be the same as anywhere else. Get a degree in Fashion Marketing and apply at fashion head offices. That was the road I took and I've now had this career for almost 15 years.


Favorite clothing store to shop at in Canada? Favorite online store?
Favourite clothing store is a tie between H&M & Zara. I love them both and just wish Zara's prices were as cheap as H&M's. Favourite on-line store would be...is Ebay considered a store? It would be Ebay but if not, I think ASOS has the best styles. I still however have not yet purchased anything from them. First piece will be after baby when I get my waist back :)



Do you think I should move to Montreal if I wanted to work in the retail buying industry?
As Montreal does have plenty of options as far as a buying career is concerned but I believe there are fashion head offices all over. This is an assumption though as I've only lived in Montreal & Miami and both of these cities had places where you can pursue a buying a career.


What's the most UNCOMFORTABLE pair of shoes you own?
Tough one! It's hard to really tell as I don't walk much during the day....I sit at my desk reading/writing e-mails. I would have to say that all of my heels are uncomfortable at the balls of my feet once I've walked around in them for over 3 hours.


Name for the baby!!!! :D
Ahh, we'll just have to wait and see :) 


Are you staying home after the baby or will you be going back to work right away?
Maternity leave in Canada or in my province at least is 1 year. I plan on taking advantage of these benefits and enjoying the full year with my son before heading back to work.
But no worries...I will still find time to blog :)



Have you been tempted to buy maternity clothes? The selection is getting pretty good. Forever 21 even has a maternity line!
No temptations whatsoever...not once. When I put my mind to something, I follow it through. I'm determined to complete my pregnancy without buying any maternity wear. I wear a lot of loose fitting clothing that permitted me to wear them throughout my pregnancy. My tighter clothing & jeans without stretch have been on the backburner and I can't wait to wear them again :)

I love the picture with you and all those Aldo bags :)

I can't believe your baby-meter shows only 20 more days until you should give birth :)
it seems like yesterday that your baby-meter showed over 100 days....I love to enter your blog daily and watch how many days you've got left until your son arrives ♥
I think I am as anxious as you are, to know your baby boy arrives healthy and safe :D

I hope you will have a fast and easy birth, and I wish you all the happiness and health in the world ♥♥♥

I love your blog, and your style :)

hopefully I will be like you when I grow up :)
