My older sister has been blogging for many years now. When she first started talking to me about it, I didn’t understand what blogging really was: “You’re publishing what you write online…for who? Why???”
It took me a bit of time to get into the whole blogging thing, but I finally understood it about a year and a half ago. Through Lookbook.nu I discovered many fashion blogs that have fascinated me since. I obsessed over a few of them, going through every single post since the blogs had been started. I was mesmerized by the images, by the inspiration I got for my own outfits and wardrobe, and it was something that I love(d) doing at the end of a long day, with a nice cup of hot tea. It was my time to just shut out what was going on in my life and step into these bloggers’ lives and get inspired, explore and have fun.
The thought of having my own blog crept up and had been nesting at the back of my mind for a while, until I decided that it was a project that I wanted to undertake. I wanted to have an arena where I could share what inspires me to hopefully inspire others, the same way I have been inspired by other bloggers (maybe the title of this post should have been ‘inspiration’?).
A blog just seemed like the perfect blend of everything I love doing in my free time, from trying new restaurants and recipes, to going shopping, getting dressed up or exploring Montreal, while sharing it with other people. The more I delve into it, the more I love it. Deep down, I really hope that one day I will be able to blog full time, but what I truly hope is that I can offer inspiration and discovery to people that come visit my blog.
