My wonderful SITS day

I cannot believe my SITS day has finally arrived. For those who don't know SITS - The secret to success is support - is a support system for women bloggers and every day a different blogger is featured and today is my day :)



I always thought I would have something big planned for the day - a really funny or interesting post - but often life can get in the way and for the past few days my 18month old sun has been under the weather with a virus and high fever and anyone who has a toddler knows when they are ill life stops.



So here is a short introduction to Side-street Style. It's a blog run by Me (Laura) and my partner John and also features Arthur our son. John is a traditional cut throat barber and I recently graduated from my photography degree. We both love life, fashion, travel, art and being creative and bringing up our son in a green and frugal way. We involve our son in every aspect of our life and believe you don't have change everything about yourself when you become parents.


We currently live in Wales, UK, although we have big dreams to live in other countries. John has always live here but I grew up in Cape Town, South Africa and moved to Europe a few years ago after my father passed away. I have been lucky enough to live in Edinburgh, Cornwall, Amsterdam and Nice in France and now near Cardiff, Wales.

This blog is about our journey that our family is taking, through our careers, bring up babe in a creative home-made way, our fashion loves, food success's and fails, travel misadventures, moving house and photography.

All you have to do is either follow this blog, my twitter, facebook or Pinterest - the more you follow the more entries you have.

  19. Happy Sits day and happy weekend. I really enjoy the quality of your photography and unique take on style- actually very refreshing.

    Like yourself I am a writer and traveler, though not recently because of kids...though I can only say I am a photog fan...not so good behind the lens.

    I'm following you on Twi & Pin...just because. Though I wouldn't say no to winning something.

    Best!

How cool, too, that all of this stylish chicness centers around the joy of your lives, your son.
