WHY DID YOU NAME YOUR BLOG “A LIFE SHE LOVED?”
I named my blog, A Life She Loved, because I am sharing bits and pieces of my life on the blog. A Life She Loved is about living a life I love.
WHY IS YOUR DOMAIN .CA AND NOT .COM?
When I decided to start blogging again, I needed a new blog name. I debated on a few names, but ended up falling in love with “A Life She Loved.” When I tried to register for a domain via GoDaddy, the .com domain was already taken. In a way, it was a blessing in disguise since I am from Canada, and I am a Proud Canadian, I am happy that my blog is a .ca domain!
WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO START A BLOG?
The main reason why I wanted to start blogging was to have a creative outlet apart from my academic and professional life. I needed something that was just mine. I wanted something that I can look back on in a few years and see how I overcame the many challenges of adulthood. Another reason was that, I am usually the go to person my friends go to when they need advice or help with anything. Why not write a blog of things we, as humans, face on a regular basis?
WHAT DO YOU USE TO EDIT YOUR PHOTOS/CREATE COLLAGES/POSTS?
I use VSCO, Photoshop, Lightroom, Afterlight and Canva
HOW DO I START BLOGGING?
I will write a post about this and it will be under “Blogging Tips and Tricks”
DO YOU WRITE ALL YOUR BLOG POSTS OR DOES SOMEONE ELSE WRITE THEM FOR YOU?
Unless stated other wise everything on alifesheloved.ca and affiliated social media accounts is written and created by me! Maybe in the future I will have guest bloggers or hire someone to join the team, but for now, it’s a one woman job!
WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT SOCIAL MEDIA?
If I had to be honest, I have a love/hate relationship with social media. I think it is great when you can use social media to create awareness on your platform, to show your passions, to encourage, to inspire, to help others. As many of you know, I love sports and using creativity to express yourself. Social Media is a great way for me to market my blog, my future clothing line, my charity, learn new technology and getting all the latest info on Sports! But I also think there’s some parts that are uninviting when there’s a lot of hateful people online hiding behind a computer screen, tablet, phone etc. saying hurtful things. Spread love and kindness wherever you go or wherever you are. Be someone who makes everybody feel like somebody.
WHAT IS ONE BEAUTY PRODUCT I CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT?
This is my favourite lip gloss. I always stock up on them!
WHAT IS MY CURRENT SKINCARE ROUTINE?
I follow a 3 step system – cleanser, toner and moisturizer. I use this cleanser (I have sensitive skin and this didn’t cause any breakouts. Plus, it smells great!). As for my toner, I switch it up between this toner, and this Black Tea toner from the same brand. For my moisturizer, I use this moisturizer (it’s lightweight, smells amazing, super moisturizing!).
HOW TALL ARE YOU?
I’m 5’0 – 5’1 🙂
HOW OLD ARE YOU?
I’m in my twenties 🙂
WHO ARE YOUR STYLE ICONS?
The Duchess of Cambridge, Princess Diana Olivia Palermo, Nicole Richie, Lauren Conrad are my style icons
ARE YOU CURRENTLY IN SCHOOL?
No, I am not currently enrolled in school. In the future, I do plan on further pursing my education and getting a PhD degree and become a Scientist/Researcher. I do however take online classes when I can on my free time to further help me succeed in my business ventures. I take Social and Digital Media, Marketing, Fashion (Parsons) and Business in my spare time.
WHAT DID YOU STUDY IN SCHOOL?
Sociology and Psychology
FAVOURITE PLACES TO GO, EAT, SHOP IN TORONTO?
Oh, this is too hard! I love everything about Toronto (except when it’s hot and it smells like fish outside), but if I had to choose my go to places to eat, it’d be E11ven, 416 Snack Bar, The Porch, Fring’s, Panago Pizza, Cactus Club Cafe, Chipotle (lol), Pizzeria Libretto, Terroni, Sud Forno, Uncle Tetsu (delicious cheesecake), La Gourmand (cute little cafe with the best cookies), Nutella Cafe (our favourite go to), trying different things at Kensington Market and the Distillery. My favourite places to hang out is at a sporting event, concerts, at home, Snakes and Lattes, or Rec Room which just opened this past summer (2017). If I’m not at work, studying, or cooking/cleaning at home, then I’ll probably be at a local craft store like Michaels, Chapters Indigo to get a few more books to add to my library, Eaton Centre, Bloor-Yorkville area, or local Toronto boutiques. I’ll write a more detailed post in the Toronto Guides.
WHAT DO I ORDER AT CHIPOTLE?
I don’t know whether to laugh/be proud or be worried that I’ve somehow helped with people lead a poor diet, but I got this question a lot this past summer. I always get the Burrito Bowl (sometimes I get chicken, sometimes I get steak), brown rice, black beans, mild tomato salsa, chill corn salsa, sour cream, cheese, lettuce. Sometimes I get the chips and guac.
