Insta-Mum Spotlight: Kellie from My Shopping Dreams

InstaBlog in the Spotlight: My Shopping Dreams
If you’re not following @my_shopping_dreams on Instagram or Facebook, get on it! I LOVED finding out more about the face behind the Instablog – Kellie Varidel, mum of two, shopping queen and bargain hunter extraordinaire!

What are 5 fast facts about you?
✏️I’m a Capricorn, ✏️I was obsessed with the Beatles in highschool, ✏️I eat porridge for breakfast most days, ✏️I have travelled from Brisbane to Cairns in a Kombi camper, ✏️I work at a major tourist attraction.

How would you describe your style?
My style is definitely eclectic. That goes for everything from music, to movies, clothes and homewares.

What is your fave thing to do with your kids?
My favourite thing to do with my kids is laugh! Nothing gives me greater joy than making my 2 munchkins laugh.

Describe your ideal day….
My ideal day would be a sleep in, brunch at a nice cafe, some pampering (hair, nails, facial etc), a few hours of shopping (of course), then a date night with my husband. I rarely get kid free time, so my ideal day would be some “me time”. I’m sure a few mums can relate.
(Oh, we totally can!! ?)

What are your goals for 2016?
In 2016, I have a couple of goals. My main personal goal is to improve my physical well being and fitness. My goal for ‘My Shopping Dreams’ is to keep sharing amazing finds; and to feature more handmade businesses and local Sunshine Coast businesses.

What is the inspiration behind My Shopping Dreams?
I started My Shopping Dreams as therapy initially, after being diagnosed with post natal depression late last year. Shopping is something I enjoy doing and did fairly frequently, so I thought I would turn a favourite past time into an outlet for helping others discover good deals and awesome finds. I was stoked to find so many other like minded woman (shopaholics) and to now be part of an amazing Instagram community.
