Not Just a Pretty Face #1: Michaela Noelle Designs

Hi folks,

I'm on HONEYMOON. (Don't worry, I scheduled this post in advance. So not blogging for the next week!). Can't WAIT to have some pretty pictures of it all tho!

Anyway,that's why today I'm launching into a new series called Not Just a Pretty Face - the one where amazingly stylish and cute bloggers get to guest post and tell us more about themselves!

I have invented some questions for them to answer, and our first guest is this lovely lady - bet you recognise the face..?? :) Here we go:


Hi! I'm Michaela and I blog all about design and other pretty things over at Michaela Noelle Designs.
I'm thrilled to be here today answering a few questions for the lovely Amy!

1. Favourite colour? Purple has been my favorite color since I can remember! As I've grown up, I've really started loving all shades of the hue.  Violet, lavender, grayish purple, get the point :)
2. Cats or dogs? Dogs all the way! All growing up my family had the most precious golden retriever named Shasta. She sadly passed away last summer, but our family just welcomed a new little pup into our home! Her name is Hope and she's an English Creme Golden Retriever. Cute is an understatement.

3. Occupation? I'm currently going to school for interior design and loving it. You know that feeling where you just know you're doing what you love and what you're meant to be doing for the rest of your life? I wake up feeling like that every morning. Such a blessing!
4. Greatest day of your life? Hmm, I've had a few that top the charts! 1. Any day I've ever spent at Disneyland :) 2. Meeting my best blog friend (turned best real life friend!) last summer. 3. Meeting Mary McDonald in San Francisco at her book tour! LOVE her.

5. An embarassing moment? One time my friends and I were playing kick the can and I was running to kick the darn can, when all of a sudden my shirt fell down leaving my upper half exposed. Oh, and I was wearing a strapless not smart. Lesson learned: don't run while wearing a strapless top. Ever.

6. Signature style? My style is an eclectic mix of contemporary pieces paired with shabby chic.  Romantic, classic, and a hint of trendy. My bedroom sums up my style pretty well:

7. Secret weakness? Shopping...specifically for clothes. Not such a secret I guess ;) Double weakness? Shopping in a vicinity {you know, like a mall...} that carries both clothing and home goods. Scary combination for my wallet!

 8. Summer or winter? Summer is my favorite because...1. I'm home with my family 2. I love the California sunshine and 3. Summer clothing is my favorite.

9. Best thing about blogging? While there are so many awesome things, I think I'd say sharing a common passion with the community around me. Everyday I wake up to new ideas, DIY's, room designs, painted furniture, outfits, and recipes. This helps me never grow weary of my passion. And also gives me a place to Oohh and Awww over the things I love since my real life friends aren't quite as interested :) The talented, sweet gals in blogland never cease to amaze and inspire me. What a wonderful community to be apart of.

Thanks for having me, Amy! It's been so fun to visit your blog today! Now it's your turn, readers-- You answer a few questions in the comment section so I can get to know you :) xo
