Check out my interview and feature on UsTrendy – A fashion community dedicated to discovering designers and empowering consumers!
It’s been wonderful working with UsTrendy for this feature and a great honor to be included among all the awesome fashion bloggers!
Rea Petsa, a woman of many talents – adds fashionista on her list. She’s not only a proud teacher but also the hippest mom on the block! She shares her insights into how she balances her fully filled life. While managing all of this, she happens to have the greatest fashion sense and helps us find out what to wear next in her amazing blog.
So we hear you’re a teacher? What subjects? Why these? What age do you teach?
Yes, I’m a History and Greek language teacher. Since I was a little girl I remember having the dream of being a teacher! History and Greek were always my favorite subjects in school and I was also really good at them, so it was something that came naturally!
You’re a proud mom on top of that? How long have you been a mom for? Give us a little on your child? Name? Gender? How do you balance your busy life? How’d you stay in such amazing shape!
I’m a mommy too yes! My baby boy is 16 months old and he is the joy of my life! His name is Athanasios and he is very very hyper, active and crazy! We spend all day together – especially now that the schools are closed – and I love seeing his cute little personality develop! It is a challenge to balance a baby, a husband, a job and a blog, but hey, I try my best to find time for everything! I don’t really exercise, but I plan to start my Pilates lessons again really soon!
Another amazing quality – you’re bilingual? What languages? What’s your native language?
My mother language is Greek, but I work at an English speaking school and have studied in London for my MA! I even find myself thinking in English sometimes!
Favorite thing to blog about?
I absolutely love blogging about fashion, current trends and style inspirations! I have to tell you though that my secret love is cooking and trying out new recipes, which I sometimes blog about too!
What made you get into a career in blogging?
After giving birth to my boy I realized how much time was going to waste before I had him. I knew that I had to pursue a blogging career as it was something I dreamed about for a while and thought I was too busy to do! Turns out, I made the right choice!
Favorite food? Meal to cook for the fam?
My favorite food is the traditional dish of the Greek cuisine, mousakas. It is made of minced meat, potatoes, aubergines, zucchinis in layers and bechamel and cheese on top. My hubby loves healthy food, so I often cook grilled chicken or fish with rice or quinoa!
Biggest challenge you’ve faced?
Each challenge I had to face in life, made me the strong woman I am today!
Best place you’ve been?
It has to be Rome. One cannot visit Rome and not adore it. It is one of the most amazing cities in the world. The history, culture and story behind each street you walk, each sculpture you see, each monument you admire is something priceless that I think everyone should experience at least once in their life.
Something people would be surprised to hear about you?
That I never drink coffee or alcohol!
You seem to have done it all, anything else on the bucket list?
I still have lots of things I want to do! I’d love to travel to as many places as possible, have another baby, go skiing, learn another language and start a charity for children. And I have to tell you this: I love crossing things off my bucket list!
