We are here, it’s Friday again and have a super feature today. One I’ve wanted to do for a long time. @kawaiigirl79 aka Claire, who lives in Ireland with her husband and 2 children has the most Fabulous Instagram account, along with her Pinterest. You can see what sort of style Claire has by just checking out some of her snaps below. So much fun, brimming with colour and full of adventures.
This is what drew me towards Claire on IG. I adore her sense of style and darling little Girl Ruby, always dressed to utter perfection. Claire is a huge supporter to all the small businesses run by Mamas just like you and me. Always showing us her latest purchases for little the kiddies & her home, it’s a joy to see what pops up next in her feed.
I live in a little seaside town near Belfast in Northern Ireland. I have 2 kids, Noah 7 and Ruby 4. I am a radiographer/sonographer. We are real animal lovers and I have very strong views on animal rights. We are also vegetarian, the kids have never eaten meat. I got married 9 years ago in Las Vegas, which is my favourite place in the world. I have been loads of times and cannot wait to take the kids one day. Now that the kids are growing up a bit I want to travel a lot with them and take them to lots of amazing places! I am a shopaholic and I love blogs and Instagram!
Whats a regular day like for you?
I work 4 days a week so my days mostly involve getting the kids up and ready for school. My mum looks after them while I work. When I get home from work we just do the usual things like have dinner and do homework. We usually walk the dog (weather permitting). Noah stays up a little later than Ruby and we love to watch The Goldberg’s before he goes to bed. I love sitting down with my feet up once the kids are in bed and everything is done! Pretty boring really!
What do you do to relax?
Watch my favourite TV programmes, read books, go on Pinterest.
Do you have a favourite shop at the moment?
What made you pick your Instagram name?
It was so long ago now, it came from my love of Japanese things and all things cute and kawaii! I think about changing it all the time!
Where do you like to eat out?
Mostly Italian! I love pizza and pasta and as we are all vegetarian there is usually a good choice with Italian food.
Who or what inspires you most?
Places like Instagram and Pinterest give me great inspiration. Fashion, interiors and travel inspiration!
Where did you last take a holiday?
My last holiday was Copenhagen at Christmas. It’s now my most favourite city and I can’t wait to go back!
What’s the most expensive thing you’ve bought?
Well we are buying a new car so definitely that! But other than that, it’s probably designer shoes and bags I buy for myself!
Describe yourself in 3 words?
Fun, procrastinator, perfectionist
What is your proudest achievement?
Probably all the work I have done to get where I am in my career. I did one of my post grads with 2 young kids in Leeds University and it was really tough flying back and forward to study but I managed to pull it off and I’m so glad I did.
