Monday's Mom Crush: Sai || Scout The City
I recently got the chance to sit down and chat with one of my favorite bloggers, Sai, from Scout the City and ask her a few questions! I was so nervous the first time I met her, but I realized quickly that she was so down to earth and approachable! She immediately felt like a friend, and I'm so happy to feature her as my Mom Crush Monday!
Keep reading for an inside look at my chat with Sai!
1. What is your favorite thing about living in the city that never sleeps?
You said it, It's a city that never sleeps! Anything you need is obtainable within minutes including toilet paper delivery from your local corner store or a "Bodega" as a new Yorker would say. It's also a city like no other because of its diversity.
2. You are the mama of a beautiful little girl, London, and have a baby boy on the way; what is your favorite part about raising them in the city?
I'm lucky to raise my daughter in a melting pot of different ethnicities and cultures. My children will grow up cultured and open minded to the world and it doesn't hurt that they will learn a little bit of street smarts to go along with it.
3. We love the name London! Have you come up with a name for your sweet boy yet?
I have a couple of names in mind but nothing set in stone. Unfortunately these are names that I would like to keep between my family and I until our little one is here safely.
4. What does your morning routine look like, and how does it impact the rest of your day?
My morning routine is rough! I actually did a youtube video about it just to see if anyone else could relate. I start my days at 5am just to be alone for an hour and meditate for 10 mins. I then make coffee and wake my daughter at 6am. From 6-6:55 I make lunch, breakfast, get dressed, yell and rush out the door to make it to the school bus on time. At 7:15 I head to the gym to relax my nerves and then start working once my workout is completed. It's a hustle but this is something that is part of my routine so I'm used to it.
5. What is the best piece of advice you have for other women trying to pursue their dreams?
Don't make excuses, just do it! Believe in yourself because if you don't who else will? Find an outlet that keeps you motivated and drives you to succeed. I'm a huge fan of laws of attraction and I practice it daily. Find what works for you and stick to it even if the shit hits the fan. We all go through up's and downs but you'll get through it.
