Meet Merrie Of Petite Career Girl

Merrie of Petite Career Girl

Cynthia:  One of the best things about being a blogger is meeting new friends from all over the world. It's awesome. It's fun. It's life affirming.

Marcy:  Must you gush? Again?

Cynthia:  Marcy. I must. Because my new blogger friend, Merrie, is that awesome. 

Marcy:  Okay. Fine. Go ahead.

Cynthia: Merrie's blog is called Petite Career Girl. She blogs mostly about style (her outfits are always drool worthy and inspiring), sometimes about healthy eating, and every once in a while she does a story about... her cats!

Marcy:  A human after your own heart.

Cynthia:  Yup. Merrie is super stylish, fearlessly funny, and best of all, she loves her cats. 

Check out her adorable cat tales here and here.

Cynthia:  Merrie is so supportive of my blog and recently nominated me for a Liebster Award which is a Q&A that helps new bloggers get to know each other. You can find my and Marcy's answers to Merrie's Liebster questions after the jump break.

Cynthia:  So what do you think, Marcy?

Marcy:  She's so cool! Do you think she would let me be her kitty?

Cynthia:  Merrie already has two cats. And besides, I am not sure she - or anyone else for that matter - would put up with your shenanigans and terrorist toe tendencies.

Marcy (eyes dilated):  You mean those little mice that mock me endlessly? 

Cynthia:  Uh oh.

Cynthia takes off to find some shoes with Marcy in hot pursuit.


Cynthia and Marcy's Liebster Award Q&A

1. What is your #1 fashion tip?

Cynthia:  If you constantly have to tug at it, pull it up, pull it down, whatever... Just take it off and wear something else. You should feel great in what you are wearing without having to think about it or drive you bonkers.

Marcy:  If you are a human you should wear clothes. You look really stupid without them. If you are a cat you should bathe at least five times a day. Preferably after eating Friskies.

2. Are you a dog or cat person?

Cynthia:  Cat person, of course.  I am secretly afraid of dogs. 
Marcy:  Neither. I hate dogs and cats.

3. Which bloggers inspired you to blog?

Cynthia:  Roxy of Effortless Anthropologie
Carol and Kathryn of In Pursuit of Pretty Things
Brooke Shaden of Promoting Passion
Freddy of  Atomic Tango
Jenni of Gnome Lover

Marcy:  Myself.

4. Best dressed celeb?

Cynthia:  Emma Watson
Marcy:  Grace Coddington's cat

5. What is your favorite movie?

Cynthia:  The Commitments
Marcy:  Finding Nemo

6. What do you hope to accomplish through your blog?

Cynthia:  Ultimately, I would like to raise money and awareness for cat rescue.
Marcy:  Become famous and admired.

7. What is your must-have splurge?

Cynthia:  Nice jeans
Marcy:  Friskies.

8. What are your 3 top closet staples?

Cynthia:  Jeans, ballet flats, blazers
Marcy:  Inside the shoebox, the skirt I wrestled to the floor and use as my bed, the back corner to deposit hairballs

9. Nail polish or natural nails?

Cynthia:  Natural on my fingernails. Polish on my toenails in the summer.
Marcy:  Bloodstained.

10. What is your opinion of the blogging community?

Cynthia:  So far it has been a wonderful experience. Every blogger I have met has been encouraging, gracious, and supportive. I have met many new friends which is super exciting.
Marcy:  Too much gushing.

    1. Maybe this entitles me to a discreet hand shake if I ever meet Marcy, and a quick snuggle from P-kitty? Tell Marcy I promise to keep things very reserved and professional and won't make any cutsey noises. :)

    2. Yay! I am so glad you like it! Woo Hoo!

  2. I love this post! Congratulations on the Liebster!

    I have enjoyed meeting Merrie, as well. I love me a cat. Although, Murphy would snub me for a week for admitting that. He doesn't know we call him "cat-dog" behind his back! Seriously, you should see him jump and saunter on the back of the couch.

    Thank you for the sweet mention. I really appreciate that! : ). You are one of my favorite blogs, too. I love your wit and your style. You have made Marcy so real to me this last year. I always look forward to her commentary!

    I loved your fashion tips. And you know what? I am going through my closet this week in a giant purge and I will be deciding whether to keep things based on your "pulling/tugging" theory. It is so true. Great advice!

    I loved this post! I liked how Marcy answered, too!

      I can't believe Murphy is a "cat-dog"! Too funny! Better not let him EVER hear you say that.

  5. Congratulations Cynthia and Marcy and Penelope! I enjoy reading question and answer interviews and Marcy was quite funny. Thank you for directing us to Merrie's blog. I love her clothes and I checked out the cat stories you pointed out. I enjoyed reading about the one cat who sneaks down to the neighbors and even made it inside their home one evening.
    Thanks for sharing,
    Stacey
