Meet The Blogger – Mona – Pinch Of Glamour

Today I have a special guest taking over LoveZahra for me…read more about the gorgeous Mona of the blog Pinch of Glamour and you will see why she is one of my daily reads! Thanks for visiting as always and I will be back tomorrow!

Hi! My name is Mona and I blog over at Pinch of Glamour. I’m a born and raised Texan, but have been residing in Chicago for almost 5 years now. While I’m a Texan at heart, I’ve grown to love Chicago – there’s so much young talent and inspiration in every corner. Since my day job doesn’t involve much creativity, I started this blog as my outlet to share my knowledge and thoughts on current trends. Most times I find it difficult for my friends, especially busy moms, to take time out and read up on the latest fashion or products. 

I wanted my blog to be a place people can drop by for easy inspiration and read my reviews on certain products or recipes. I don’t think I could sum up my blog in one word as it’s my space for all sorts of inspiration. One day I may blog about current trends and the next day you may find a recipe for delicious cupcakes! 

Why did you start blogging? 

I’ve been told by countless friends to start a blog because of my interest in fashion, celebrity gossip, trying out new products, and baking. I’m constantly reading up on anything new I can get my hands on. Finally, after contemplating the idea, I decided to go for it. It’s a part of my new year’s resolution to make things happen instead of waiting around – I have to start somewhere, right?  

How has the experience been so far?

I was inspired by many of the bloggers I follow and wanted to tell a story of my own. The experience has been great so far. While I’m still new to the blogging world, I’ve gotten positive feedback and have met some great people through the process. 

What are some of your hobbies or favorite things?

I absolutely love to bake and plan events, though some may disagree, it is a stress reliever for me. I enjoy traveling, architecture, and most recently learning how to use my new toy, a DSLR. Besides my interests, my favorite thing to do is grab a cup of coffee and catch up with a good friend.

What are your favorite places to shop?

Zara, GAP, J.Crew, Nordstrom, Loft, ASOS, Williams Sonoma, Sephora

Your absolute favorite go-to look?
My go-to look would definitely be a crisp, white t-shirt, a blazer, jeans, and a either a wedge or pump, depending on the occasion. You’ll find mainly classics in my wardrobe with a few trendy pieces.

If you weren’t doing what you are doing now career-wise, what would you be?

If I wasn’t working for Corporate America, I would definitely be utilizing my creative side. I would love to have my own bakery or event planning company.

What is your favorite beauty product?

Lorac’s Baked Matte Satin Blush in Exposed
