Monday Must Knows - Kari Skelton

I've been a bad bad bad blogger. I'm honestly shocked my sister hasn't fired me yet. (Thanks Lindz!) 

I'm not sure what you want me to write about. This winter that never ended really took a toll on me. I'm so glad the warm weather is upon us. But to be honest, I have a hard time generating content when I feel like everything has already been done before. I don't want to rip people off. Especially when most of my day is spent just cleaning, playing ponies, and wiping tiny butts. So until I get my rump in gear, here's the gorgeous Kari Skelton telling us about herself! Thanks Kari!

Hi, I'm Kari! I'm a mom to Wyatt who is 2.5 years old and to our dog Moses who is almost six. I'm in love with a guy named Ryan (my husband). I'm a blogger at KariSkelton.com and I'm also a personal shopper and stylist. I worked in radio and television for 13 years before going on maternity leave. I had always wanted to start my own blog to share ideas on style, parenting, and adventure. So, when we decided I was going to stay home and raise the babies, it seemed like a perfect time to start my business! I love to have fresh flowers in our home all the time and I eat cake at least once a week. 

 

 

1) Personal Record of days of dry shampoo? Seven. Dry shampoo and hats are some of your best friends when you're a new mom. 

2) Personal Record of shows watched in one sitting? (how many hours? What show?) Suits a few years ago. 10 episodes in a row. When I was a kid I watched Teen Witch 25 times in one year and when I was in my early 20's I used to leave parties early to go to Blockbuster and rent Sex and the City. I watched the whole series in two weeks (I can't believe I'm admitting this.) *editors note: OWN THIS SHIT GIRL I AM WITH YOU*

3) Longest time between grocery trips? (for home, not business!) I go to the grocery store all the time. I'm one of the weird ones who enjoys grocery shopping. 

4) Favourite story your spouse/partner tells about you at parties? The moment we met in a media scrum (we both used to be news reporters). We were interviewing the Minister of Municipal Affairs (at the time). He describes what I was wearing and then we bicker about who owned the scrum and asked the best questions. *editors note: WHO WON?!*

5) What food do you effing hate? Like if someone fed it to you, you would spit it out on your kid? (obviously we are joking, please do not spit on your children.) Raisins. I think it's the only thing I don't like to eat. Used to eat them all the time when I was young but now I can't stand them.

Until next time...

NEW PRODUCT- The Accessory

I am so excited to finally launch the accessory. This idea was in my mind for a year prior to chatting with my pal Amanda of Engravables Design. Then it took another year and a half to bring it to you all. Things were put on the back burner and other products came first, but we finally did it!

When I had the idea for the accessory, I realized that almost all of my friends had a IKEA Ribba shelf in their child/babies rooms. They held an assortment of things on them. Not that they weren't already great in their minimal style, I thought they would be SO much cuter with a backer on it. City scape was the first that came to mind, then following was the mountain and the watermelon slice. Like any Ruby Thursday Idea, I like a multi purpose product. There is the option to buy additional wall hooks so the your RTC wall hooks have a backer that is so awesome!

Lastly. I really wanted the option to paint them. It gives the option to customize and I love that. Everyone has that idea of the perfect shade and now they can achieve it on their own!

Check it out!
