HAPPY 10 YEAR BLOG-VERSARY!

by - May 11, 2018


My blog has been active for 10 years, it's time to celebrate! This year of 2018 marks a decade since I first started off my blog to document my creative journey as a fashion writer, photographer and former model. Social media has exploded since and blogging has given me opportunities to cover events in Canada and abroad, network with fellow fashionistas and collaborate with numerous brands. From photographing celebrities at New York Fashion Week to moving and placing in Montreal's fashion industry, it has been a fun ride.


Here are my top 10 fave blog moments to commemorate my blog-versary. A big thanks to everyone I've worked with and to all that follow me. And yes, the blogging continues! 

1. Being published in 3 different print issues of Metal Clay Artist magazine, which was available in 22 countries and to subscribers in 98 countries. Yes, it was pretty cool to walk into Chapters Indigo and see myself on the cover of a magazine. Read more about it, here and here.


2. Attending media events has been the icing on the cake for me, being a blogger you always get first dibs on new product releases, private restaurant launches and VIP treatment at fashion parties. Over the last 10 years, I've been to so many fun events that have given me the chance to grasp the evolution of social media marketing.  


3. With the growth of my blog, I had to seek out help from interns that would also attend media events with me or in my absence. The fact that I was able to offer networking opportunities to others via my online journal was important to me, as I wanted it to be a collective collaboration of creative individuals. My interns attended shows from Toronto to Tokyo. Read more about the interns I've worked with.


4. As my blog took a life of its own, I was able to network and connect with photographer John Smith who taught me everything I know about photography today. John had officially became my blog photographer and captured the best moments of Ottawa Fashion Week and various other events. 


5.  The ultimate aim of my blog was to feature Canadian talent as much as I could, therefore I worked with local fashion boutiques in Ottawa, as well as many designers from Canada. Covering fashion shows as media is always interesting as you get to see who is new on the local scene. One of my fave events had to be, "I AM FASHION, RIP THE FAB LANE". 


6. I've worked with so many brands, my funnest collaborations have been with Winners & Marshalls, Schwiing and Butter London.


7. My fave post on the blog had to be an honest article I wrote for anyone who aspires to work in the fashion industry.  Check it out, The Truth: Working in Fashion


8. I started blogging all my personal travels to fun destinations such as London, Paris, Amsterdam etc. Hence sharing my travel experience and advice. My most memorable destination so far was Santorini, Greece.


9. One of my fave gigs over the last 10 years was the Place D'Orleans Vlogger search in which I actually placed top 10. It was fun getting paid to shop and vlog! 


10. Launching my online store on Etsy, which was first a vintage shop and now has somehow morphed into a bikini boutique



Thanks for following the blog, lookout for a future travel post soon!
