Giveaway {Wanderlustings}

7.26.2010

I'm so excited to introduce you to Caitlin of 'Wanderlustings'... I happened upon her undiscovered shop a few weeks ago and just knew I had to have her over for a giveaway! I adore everything in her sweet little shop... The photographs (taken by the talented Cari Wayman) and the stunning pieces... I'd be hard pressed to pick a favourite! Caitlin has generously offered $20 in shop credit for one fortunate winner this week!

{Blog}

Caitlin has taken the time to answer a few questions:
What does a perfectly ordinary day in your life look like?
"A normal, ordinary day in my life is: I wake up around 6 am with my partner in crime, also known as Nick. We get up and let our three bunnies (Charlie, Lola and Alphonso) out of their cages to play. I leave for my day job (hey! a girl's got to eat!) where I am a Marketing & Events Planner in Chicago. I usually get home by 6 pm and have recently been taking my little, salvaged cruiser around the lakefront; it's heavenly and I get tons of inspiration while sitting by the beach. Then, I come home and play with the buns some more, follow up on wanderlustings emails, hopefully post on my inspiration blog: wanderlustingsmuse.blogspot.com, possibly create some new accessories and then whip up something for dinner. Nick comes home and we unwind with our funny, little family."

What time of year most inspires you?
"I am inspired by every season; more specifically, the beginning of each season. I love the excitement and anticipation of each changing! It's usually when I start designing and experimenting with a new collection. It gives me goosebumps just thinking about it now!"

What do you think of as comfort food?
"Yummm! I live in Chicago, so Giordano's stuffed, cheese pizza is the ultimate comfort food for me - especially during a cold, winter snowstorm!"

If you could hop on a plane, without giving one thought to your budget, where would you go?
"I really need to get a passport! I would want to go visit the chateau in Provence from the movie "A Good Year" with Russell Crowe. I would never leave that place!"

What are five things you would like to do in the next five years?
"Five things that I would like to do in the next five years:
- To have wanderlustings be my full-time, profitable, day job
- Visit Europe (that last question has me thinking...)
- Convince Nick to turn our entire spare bedroom into my own office/craft space which would definitely be an upgrade from the closet that I currently reside in - it's overflowing!
- Get my Mom to open her own Etsy shop or convince her to work with me :)
- Get engaged - possibly married...one step at a time though (I am not good with change nor commitments- hehe!). My boyfriend is most likely breathing a sigh of relief as he reads this right now :)"
