Meet a Friend Monday - Rina

It's Monday again, which means that I get to introduce you to another friend I've had the opportunity to meet, thanks to the wonderful world of blogging!  Today, I'd like to introduce you to Rina of Cute Coconut.  Rina blogs about all the things that moms need to know! Today she tells us a little bit about herself and what brought her to the blogosphere.  Meet Rina!


Today I am very honored to be featured here on Breakfast with Tiffany, one of the coolest blogs I have ever seen (or read??), Thanks Tiffany!

Soo..let me start babbling about myself. My name is Rina Shelomita, my pen name is Shelomita but you can all call me Rina. I am a stay at home mom to two adorable little boys aged three and two years old and currently staying overseas far from my home country. Yep, I am also one of those expat moms, the kind who stays around in the house or roams around by the pool or at the mall with the children, trying to enjoy myself while the husband is making money from the office. Sounds like easy life, doesn't it?

But all that joy did not come for free. Things did not start pretty smoothly in the early days of my SAHM career. My body apparently worked so hard to adjust (having been one spoilt girl my entire life, always with at least one helper in the house_before moving I was using three helpers) to do everything by myself I got dysfunctional bleeding for three months due to stress. The funny thing (or stupid?) was that I did not even realise that I was stressed!

Anyway the bleed stopped after two visits to my gynaecologist and since then I just try to keep myself away from any stress, just enjoying life and stop being hard on myself.

And sooo, because I love writing so much I decided to pursue my writing hobby and take it to the next level now that I have lots of time to do that. But I only started to be really serious in blogging in June 2011 when I finally bought my own domain and hosting though actually I have been blogging since 2005, on and off.

My blog, Cutecoconut (I prefer to call it mommagazine), has a little bit of everything because that is what happens in my mind. I tried to write books so many times but never got to finish even one story. So this mommagazine really suites me in every angle. Whatever written there are things that really come from my overloaded mind and I hope it can be one place where young moms find information they need, ideas that can inspire them or just to make them feel that they are not alone lost in the motherhood world.

Other than my bleeding and my blog, you should know that I am a coffee lover. It is one of my morning remedy. I also love music and I am a musician by heart. Love shopping (who doesn't??), am a food lover and three places where you can find me hang around for hours are coffee shop, book stores and homeware stores.

Hmm...I think I have pretty much covered everything about myself. Come by to my mommagazine and connect, It should be fun to have new friends from around the world. It is always fun, right? :)

Thanks for being my guest today, Rina!! Go on over to her blog and show her some love!
