Style_Mum aka Pascale Banks studied at the London College of fashion. Now as a mum of twin boys working in the city she enjoys expressing her love of fashion through her stunning fashion blog. If you see her Instagram stories you’ll soon see she’s loads of fun too and loves a night out.
We wanted to find out more about Pascale and so asked her to complete the ‘It’s All About You’ interview.
My favourite out OUT look:
I will always wear a dress when I'm off out out! So much easier to plan when you only have one item of clothing to think about. I also find that for big events I tend to gravitate towards red
My favourite in IN look:
I love ripped jeans and slouchy jumpers but for the followers of my Instagram stories they will know that my go to look for around the house is skanky joggers and hubbys jumper!!
Knackered mama style tip:
Wear a bright lipstick, it will detract from the knackered muma eyebags!
Palm print or florals?
If it is in reference to interiors then palm print but for clothing I love a floral print summer dress
Flamingos or pineapples?
I'm pineapple mad!!
Parenting rule you’ve abandoned:
I don't really follow rules, totally winging it!
Last time you had a full night's sleep (over 7 hours):
Big love to all the mama's with babies but now my boys are 8 they love their beds and a weekend lay in
The first thing you do once the kids hit the sack:
Usually work! The evenings are my time for writing and catching up with emails with a glass of wine in hand!
If motherhood were a cocktail it would be called:
Has a hangover since having a child ever been worth it?
No but I will never learn!!
Favourite thing your kid/s says:
I love you! Also my two are mini comedians, they are often coming out with funny quotes, I love that!
24hrs without the kid/s, what’s your plan?
A mooch around the shops, cocktails and dinner with friends
Essential item for motherhood survival:
It sounds terrible but a fully charged ipad! You never know when you may get caught in a queue or get an important call. The Ipad has saved me on many occasions!
Would you put on make up to go and buy make-up wipes?
Sadly yes!! I never leave the house without a bit of concealer and blusher!
Most embarrassing motherhood moment:
As a mother of twin boys most of my embarrassing stories include poo!!
Mama super hero power you would choose:
It would have to be a Mary Poppins style power that magically tidies up! I hate putting the clothes washing away, any kind of power that can do this job for me would be amazing!!
What do you wish you’d been told about motherhood beforehand?
That not only will you love with every inch of your being but you will laugh a lot!
Three words to describe yourself:
Crazy, Laidback and friendly
Exciting upcoming plans:
I have lots of exciting upcoming events and talks planned with my stylish partner in crime Victoria Genevieve. All will be revealed soon.
Why do Mums Rule?
Well in the words of Beyonce - Who runs the world...girls!! My house would crumble without me but the local take out may get more business!!
