… You go and start a blog.
Hi, my name is Masha and this is my virtual home where I keep all the little things that bring a smile to my face. I love discovering new things and I love writing so starting this blog in early 2012 seemed like a perfect solution to combine these two passions of mine. I like to refer to Style Lemon as a lifestyle blog because it definitely began as one but it has since evolved into a little journal of mine, where I document some of the things my family and I are up to, our travels and our day to day life.
Thank you for reading, it means the world!
Where do you live?
We currently live in Southern France, where my husband Vid works. He is a professional handball player so our lives are pretty hectic but we wouldn’t have it any other way.
Where are you from?
Both Vid and I are from Slovenia but we have lived pretty much all over. Vid played in Germany before coming to Montpellier and I spent my high school years playing tennis in Spain and then I went to the US (Amherst, MA to be exact) for college. Vid and I met the year after I finished college.
What do you do?
Well, I have a degree from Journalism and Political Science. After college I interned with the Clinton Foundation in NYC (best experience ever!). After returning home to Slovenia I worked at the Slovenian Prime Minister’s press department. After having Lara I moved to Montpellier full time so we could all be together. I worked in marketing for the first three years after I moved, which I also loved. So, I’ve worked a little all over and in different fields. In my opinion nothing beats actual experience. After we had Lev I chose to be a SAHM for a little while. I love and appreciate the fact that I’m able to do this and dedicate this time to my little ones. It also makes it a lot easier on us, since Vid is traveling practically every week. But I also miss working so I always try to keep busy with some project or other. And hopefully once we settle down a little more I’ll be able to get back on the career track.
Where do you shop?
Well, anywhere I like something and I can actually afford to buy it :-). But mostly I shop online both for the kids and myself. I love H&M for basics for kids and Mango and Zara usually has great stuff for littles too, as does GAP. I have a couple of online boutiques that I check regularly for myself such as ASOS, Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie. I also like GILT for investment pieces. And as you’ve probably noticed I love discovering new brands and finding special items.
