HELLO STRANGER // Kylie from midnight & dawn

I am so chuffed to introduce you to a dear friend of mine. If you are thinking she looks familiar, that is because Christine, my first Hello Stranger is her adorable twin!

Kylie is one talented girl, and a babe to boot, With an adorable blog called Midnight & Dawn. Can you believe she has a one year old ? Who, by the way is the coolest kid out. So here is Kylie, A babe, A mom, and someone I really wished lived closer.

Name: Kylie Burrowes

Age: 24

What do you do 9-5? I’m currently staying at home with my one year old son, Seth, while my husband works. It’s been quite the dream to get to spend so much time with him. Mostly, my ‘9-5’ consists of messy meal times, sing-a-longs to Mickey Mouse and Thomas the Tank Engine, naptimes, and realizing I have five or six different foods somewhere on my shirt. It’s not glamorous, but I wouldn’t want it any other way.

What do you do with the other hours of the day? I’ve taken a small break from sewing since I don’t have a dedicated space for it right now. I’m definitely missing it, but sometimes it’s nice to take a break from sewing to get inspired again! Lately, I’ve been focusing on writing and drawing. I’m very inspired by Danny Gregory’s book Everyday Matters. He does beautiful drawings of his day-to-day life. It’s a great reminder to find inspiration in things that usually seem mundane.

What did you want to be when you grew up? I had the great dream of being a dolphin trainer for most of my childhood years. There are probably notebooks full of dolphin drawings tucked away in my parent’s garage somewhere. I swear, they were the subject of every essay in my early school days.

What are your favourite online places: My little family is about to make the move to Nashville, so I’ve been browsing tons of home decor sites. My favorites are Apartment Therapy, My Scandinavian Home, The Design Files, and Tiny House Swoon (I have a big dream to live in a tiny house
For fashion, my current favorites are Esme & The Laneway and Blushing Ambition.

Where are your favourite real life places: I will always love Chicago. It’s the only time my twin sister and I shared an apartment, so it will always be a very special place. I also love Cathedral Cove in New Zealand. It’s the most beautiful beach I’ve seen. It’s unreal.

Who are your Influences: I am so inspired by classic beauties. I love Francoise Hardy, Jane Birkin, Jean Seberg, Brigitte Bardot, and, of course, Marilyn Monroe. They are some of my favorites because, to me, their style is timeless.

Until next time.
