Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

MM Q+A : Dominique Perri from Baby Dino.

MM Q+A : Dominique Perri from Baby Dino.

 

I'm super excited to introduce you to the newest Modern Mother #mamasquad member!

Excited not only because she's a Sydney-sider like me, she's uber cool, beautiful and a bad-ass Boss Mama but also because she's got a little sumthin' sumthin' for all Modern Mother readers! 

Dominique Perri is the co-owner of Baby Dino. An online clothing store for the fashion-forward kiddo (and parent). Stocking brands like Rylee and Crew, Bobo Choses, HUXBABY, Kid + Kind and Munster Kids to name a few, Baby Dino has the goods to satisfy even the coolest of cool kids clothing appetites!

As mama of two boys and a busy successful business owner with an enviable Instagram profile, i recently met with Dominique in her awesome warehouse to chat while she took some beautiful pictures (see some below) of my two girls in her new range at Baby Dino. 

Learn a little more about Dominique below and keep reading for a little gift from Baby Dino for Modern Mother readers!

Dessert island meal?  

I’m a huge lover of all things seafood, it’s pretty much guaranteed I’ll order some kind of fish when I’m at a restaurant.

Best gift you've ever recieved?   

Before we married, my husband and I lived in Sweden.  After 3 months of cold (-20 degrees!) and really dark weather, I was starting to feel a bit homesick.  It was Valentines Day and he took me out for an amazing dinner and surprised me with a handmade card that said “pack your bags, we’re going to NYC tomorrow”.  I’m not usually a fan of surprises or gifts, but he definitely outdid himself that time!

The next place you want to visit?  

We’re taking our boys skiing in Queenstown this year, it will be their first time seeing snow.  We’ve been to Queenstown once before and both fell in love with how beautiful it was, but it wasn’t ski season then so I’m really excited to see it all white this time!

The last thing you did for yourself? 

I try to do small things for myself each day, even if its something simple like relaxing and watching trashy tv at the end of the day instead of cleaning up after dinner.  The last “big” thing I did for myself was take a half day off work while the kids were at daycare to spoil myself with a facial, mani/pedi and massage, I felt like a totally new person afterwards! 

One vice you'll never give up?  

Probably drinking! 

Your go to weekly meal you cook? 

My go-to meal would have to be what my boys call “pasta soup”.  I just boil and blend any veggies I have in the fridge, add beef stock for flavour and then cook pasta inside the soup.  So healthy and easy, plus it tastes so good!

What brings you back down earth? 

There’s nothing better than watching my babies sleep.  As much as I count the minutes till bedtime every night, as soon as they’re asleep, I turn into a stalker watching, smelling and kissing them and wondering how I got so lucky J

Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 

Hopefully travelling a lot more than what I do now.  I used to travel a lot, but have stopped since having kids as it always feels like it will end up being more effort than enjoyment while they’re so young.  In 5 years, they’ll be more independent and I’d love to be exploring new places with them.

I loved meeting Dominique, checking out Baby Dino HQ and adding another amazing member to the #mamasquad (insert big smiley face here)
