The holidays are over, and I'm quite behind. I'm struggling, trying to catch up with things and getting back to business. Anyone feeling the same way?
I'd like to welcome the newest member of The Downtown Boutique...Michele of Sweet Irie Originals. Michele has gladly agreed to become a co-author, along with Sydnei of Simply Sentimental. I'm so grateful for these gals! If you want to co-author, please email me.
Today, we are featuring a shop that I recently found on Etsy, and I LOVE: Juicy Christians. Nathifa, of Juicy Christians, sells gorgeous pendants, earrings, necklaces, and more. They are some of the most unique pieces of jewelry I have seen. I think when I can, I am going to do some shopping for ME!
Let's get to knowNathifa a little better:
TDB: If you could only use one word to describe yourself, what would that word be?
Nathifa: The pressure to choose one! well...I would say..faithfull(with two Ls..becuase I have a lot of faith in my dreams, people, etc...see, I still couldn't just say it in one word!
TDB: What is your dream job?
Nathifa: My dream job is to sell my creations and make a fantastic living doing it!
TDB: What websites or blogs do you regularly frequent?
Nathifa: I LOVE visiting blogs! I have a few favorites! Those include sadie olive, pam garrison, anahata katin, insideablackapple, and theartnest. I will definitely be visiting The Downtown Boutique now that I've found it! Now, if I could just keep mine updated...
TDB: If you could learn a new skill, what would it be?
Nathifa: Does swimming count? I really want to learn how to swim...BUT, if that doesn't work, I would give my big left toe to learn how to play the violin!
TDB: What is something that people would be surprised to find out about you?
Nathifa: I have a serious fear of worms. :o/
TDB: What is your "vice"? (Chocolate? Coffee? Something else?)
Nathifa: I'm allergic to chocolate so I have to go with Golden Oreos or white chocolate macadamia cookies from Subway...
TDB: Who was your favorite childhood book character, and why?
Nathifa: There was this book I read when I was younger called Nobody (not quite sure about the title) and it had a red cover and the illustrations were stick people. It was about nobody. You know, when you're younger and your parents ask you who broke the lamp and you said nobody, well it was about nobody. I really loved that character! I can't find the book to this day though so if you know what Im talking about please let me know.
