My recipe for the perfect shoe

Besides my family, food blogging and fashion are my greatest passions

Full-time mum and food blogger Simone Marie Kemptner has the perfect recipe to cook up a storm and bring a trendy finishing touch to the table

It’s all go when you’re mum to a one-and-a-half-year-old little girl as well as a passionate food blogger.

Every day, I’m on the move, travelling several kilometres between the nursery, playground, kitchen, and various photo shoots and events, meaning my shoes absolutely need to be one thing in particular - comfy!

Yet they need to have that certain special something, too, because Mrs Blogger here is always after a little style as well as practicality.
And since time is precious, making it impossible to change outfits three times a day, it’s super important that these trusty companions look good in any given situation, alongside being high quality and durable.

My name is Simone Marie Kemptner and I’m a happily married 31-year-old mum to my charming little shoe-lover, Amelie.
I’ve been blogging as chez_simonemarie since September 2016, and I just love sharing food recipes, ideas, tips and tricks with my readers.

On my blog you’ll find simple, healthy and varied recipes anyone can cook. They don’t involve spending hours in the kitchen, and the ingredients can be found at any market.

My passion for good food and cooking goes back to my childhood. From an early age, I would always watch my mother, grandmother and family in the kitchen, often lending a helping hand. That passion has stayed with me to this day and I’m delighted so many readers have joined me on this journey.

It was my husband who first encouraged me to start my own blog: he’s my harshest critic but also my most loyal "customer" :)
I’ve always dreamt of publishing my own cookbook, and my blog is sort of like an online version of it.
All recipes are my own and I take all photos myself.

I enjoy travelling for inspiration, particularly to beautiful France. But of course, I owe a great deal to my mum and grandmother, as well as to our little ray of sunshine, who all equally inspire me to create my recipes.

Soon, an event - no, THE event - of the Austrian food blogger scene will be taking place. The 2017 Austria Food Blog Award will be held on 21 October under the motto "Glamorous Hungry". I’m lucky to have been shortlisted as one of the top 6 participants in the Breakfast category.
My new Högl Tomboy boots will of course be accompanying me to this event, and they’ll hopefully come with me all the way up to the winner’s podium. So, fingers crossed and check out my blog soon to see how I got on!


Until then,
warm regards and à bientôt,
Simone Marie
