What inspired you to start blogging?

I was a stay-at-home mom with my twin babies, and when they slept, I hopped on the web to keep in touch with the world outside. I was a web designer in a previous incarnation, so it was a familiar environment to me. Blogging was just getting started 7 years ago, and at first I wasn't sure of the point of it, but, needless to say, I soon discovered blogs that inspired, empowered and informed me in ways that other mediums couldn't match. I love that the knowledge and experiences that individuals have can be expressed through blogging. It's personal, and that makes each blog unique and special!

How do you keep up with the latest kids' fashions and being a mom?

My blog, KidStyleFile. I'm very lucky that I know have a great team of writers and researchers to help keep me in the know. The different viewpoints and aesthetics of these wonderful women brings a rich diversity of discoveries to KidStyleFile and makes dressing kids effortless for our readers -- me included!

What are three things parents should think about when styling their kids?

1. Comfort -- it's got to be comfy, or it's not worth it. Kids need to be able to move; run, jump and play; without restriction.
2. Colour -- bring it on! Colour affects mood, so colour your kids happy.
3. Creativity -- let your imagination -- and your child's -- run free. Learning to dress yourself so you feel good is a life skill. Experimentation leads to satisfaction.
