Introducing Finance Heart To Heart – Ma Petite Chou’s Personal Finance blog

Hello, my lovely readers! After 6 years of running this fashion blog, I’ve decided to branch out and add another blog as a companion to this one. Fashion will always be my big love. But I also have many other topics that I love to discuss with anyone, especially other women — wives, mothers, girlfriends, etc. One subject that I’m extremely passionate about is personal finance. So please allow me to introduce to you my new personal finance blog, Finance Heart To Heart – Ma Petite Chou’s Personal Finance blog. Fashion and shopping obviously affects your personal finance. And sometimes the two can butt heads. Over the years as my life is evolving — I’ve been married for 6 years, I’ve had two children — our finance evolves too. I love reading books and blogs and listening to podcasts on personal finance. There are so many great ones out there. And there is so much to learn about money. I’m constantly absorbing new information. So I’d love to share my ideas and my experience with you. My guy always said “why don’t you start another side blog for this?” I think he is right. This new blog won’t be a strictly money blog because we know there are so many things that affect your finance. I’m open to talk about anything that can impact one’s personal finance, like family life, relationships, etc.

At this moment, Finance Heart To Heart is still a work in progress in terms of how the site looks and everything. I’m still working on the graphics and layout. I just wanted to start writing before the site is completely finished.

Ma Petite Chou will still be the main fashion blog. You know how much I love fashion and I will not give it up for a very very long time. I joke that when my daughter’s a teenager, inevitably she will be making fun of me for having a fashion blog, but I won’t care (unless nobody reads it anymore then I guess I’ll have to give it up because otherwise I’ll just be talking to myself). But hopefully as a person, I’ve matured and continue to mature and learn new things. I hope you will join me on this new blog. If it’s not your cup of tea and you want to strictly stay on the topics of fashion, please continue visiting this fashion blog :).

I am very excited!

Merry Christmas!

It’s a gorgeous day and that requires a summery outfit. Loving this high-low green skirt. I’ve been wearing it a lot, it pretty much goes with any top. I got this floral top from Bluenote for only $10, love it. I also wear it like a beach cover, it’s real easy to just throw it on.

Boots No7

February 28th, 2013

I’m very interested in trying the British mega brand Boots No7. It’s being sold at Shoppers Drug Mart, but Shoppers Drug Mart makes up their cosmetics quite a bit even though it’s a drugstore.
