Feature Friday: Sarita from It's my Girls' World

October 28, 2016, by Deena @Shoes to Shiraz

Welcome back to another fantastic feature Friday.  We're very happy to bring you Sarita from It's my Girls' World today. She's an absolutely stunning Canadian blogger with impeccable taste and an incredibly beautiful family.  I asked her to share two of her favourite posts from her blog with us and she said:
Since it’s fall let’s go with my pumpkin poppers recipe: a favourite on the blog and in my house and my new house tour was a favourite on the blog this year!

Do you have any children? What parenting advice would you give to a someone having a new baby? 
I have two girls… a sweet seven year old and a sassy four year old… alright, she is super sweet also… most days :). Raising them is the greatest privilege and pleasure of my life. I would remind new parents of that and tell them that the days are long but the years are short…. Oh  and I’d tell them after the first month, get your kids on somewhat of a routine—for your sake as well as theirs!

What is something that people might be surprised to know about you? 

People are always surprised to find out that I’m from the Caribbean (Trinidad and Tobago) and I moved to Canada in my twenties… you know, last month ;-). I try to visit TNT (that’s what the locals call it) once a year. Oh and because of this, I like hot sauce with every meal.

What hobbies do you have other than blogging? 

I love cooking and baking but even though I’d like to bathe in milk chocolate, I don’t. Well not most days anyways. So I like to transform recipes into healthier versions of themselves. I guess so that I can be a healthier version of myself, I dunno!

If you could interview anyone, who would it be and why? 

I’d like to interview Jennifer Lawrence. I feel like we’d be pals! I would totally fall when accepting an award.

What inspired you to start blogging? 
I had begun to read a few other blogs before I started my own but The Krim Family blog was the one that really did me in. As awful as their story is, it was such a blessing that Marina had recorded all of the little things her kids did. I spent hours and hours reading their story. I had already begun to forget all the little things that my first three year old did as a baby. I wanted to capture all the delicate and beautiful moments and share them… and so I did!

What is your style “uniform”? 
I adore tunics and leggings and then I have fun with the accessories of the season. Give me ALL the scarves, statement necklaces, stud earrings and booties! This year I’m loving those open toed booties though sadly these days, my Canadian toes will be freezing if they adorn my feet.

Tell us about your dream vacation
I really, really want to visit Greece or Spain!  The cuisine, the architecture, the beautiful beaches! Maybe in the next few years when the littles aren’t so little.
