Meet My Fellow Blogger Monica of Moda by Monika

Friday, January 10, 2014

If you enjoy my blog then I'm sure you will enjoy the blogs of some friends of mine!  This week I'm introducing you to my fellow blogger friend Monica of Moda by Monika.  She's got a fun personality and likes a little bit of everything, just like I do!

 Hi!  My name is Monica.  I blog over at Moda by Monika which is currently in need of a new name so this will most likely change within the next few months.  My blog is mostly about fashion but I do include DIY tutorials, and lifestyle type posts.  A lot of my DIY’s at the moment are nail art, but I am starting to include more home d├ęcor as well.  I started my blog back in 2010 but stopped shortly after due to life getting in the way.  Three years later I started blogging again in the spring of 2013.  I’ve lived in Texas and that’s where I rescued the love of my life; Lilly the puggle.  Lilly and her best friend Kuba (the other dog) make a guest appearance quite frequently in my blog.  I work full time and blog full time.  Don’t get me wrong it can get very time consuming but if you are doing something you love or are passionate about it’s definitely worth it.  So I will leave you with my favorite phrase, “Hakuna Matata.”

5 Things about myself
1.       I’m 100% Polish and I’ve heard every Polish joke out there.
2.       I’m a fur mama to two beautiful little fur babies.
3.       I have my MBA and am finally able to use it at my job.
4.       I LOVE everything that has to do with the color pink.
5.       I’m a cowgirl boot wearin’ Jersey Girl.

Two of my favorite blog posts are actually both very deep.  They have nothing to do with fashion which is predominantly what my blog is about but it shows that I have been through some struggles in life and I am more appreciative because of it.  My post titled Texas has to do with my big move to Texas, what led up to the move, and what led up to me moving back to Jersey.  It was an adventure both good and bad but I would do it all over again if I had the chance.  The second post is about some inspirational people who I’ve crossed paths with.  They are the people who have made me realize that being upset isn’t worth it.  Being happy and not taking things for granted is the way to live life.  Not having regrets, because that is the reason I am who I am today.  I have made some stupid mistakes in my life but I don’t regret any of them.
