Thank you so much for the kind words! If you know some HTML/CSS, I recommend downloading a theme you like and playing around with it (that’s what I do)! But if you don’t and have some time to learn, give HTML/CSS a try 🙂 Or you could just spend some time finding a theme that suits your creative needs!
Thank you so much! Obviously not producing much at the moment – oops! As with all the blogs I’ve had in the past, I generally use a pre-made theme and transform it to using CSS and HTML 🙂
Thank you so much for the kind words, and my apologies for this TERRIBLY late reply! Just over a year ago, Eric and I sold all our Canon equipment and bought into Sony because: Sony cameras are so much easier to carry around and their video capabilities are amazing! Personally, if you need a robust DSLR that can also do video, the Canon 5D Mk III was a great choice for a reasonable price as its quite outdated. Sony is definitely much more expensive of an ecosystem to buy into but I’ve really been loving the quality of the camera and lenses thus far! Hope that helps! x
Thank you so much for following all these years – it means so much!
As you’ve mentioned in your question, I could likely work from anywhere (this flexibility is something I’m very grateful for)! And although I hated living in Edmonton as a teen with a curfew and without a drivers’ license and any semblance of independence, Edmonton is now a really wonderful city to live in. Plus, my friends and family are here!
With that being said, if I was really serious about pursuing being a full-time “fashion influencer,” moving to a bigger city would’ve definitely made more sense. But it’s really only a side project for me!
Thank you so much!! My blog has always been independent and I actually started it on Blogger and eventually transitioned to WordPress! You can really just start on any site that hosts blogs! x
Shopping sustainable fashion is not 100% accessible, but it is up to those who can afford it to support the designers who are paving the way for sustainable and slow fashion! For those who want to be conscious consumers but don’t have the budget to, I always recommend shopping secondhand or vintage as a sustainable alternative. Also, just being more mindful about what you buy, and buying only what you need and not what you want is already a more sustainable train of thought.
So sorry for the late reply! Trends are one of the reasons fast fashion has become disposable. People either throw away or stop wearing their clothes because their clothes fall apart or go out of style. So I really don’t care for trends (although I’m sure they affect me on a subconscious level). With that being said, I don’t think people need trends to express themselves whatsoever. Trends are a marketing technique employed by fast fashion retailers to make us believe that we need something to be “cool” or “with it”. I 100% believe that you can still love clothing and express yourself creatively with your clothing without ever having to be on trend. And I think that’s what the slow fashion is really about – consciously creating timeless fashion that won’t ever go out of style.
Thank you so much! I edit all my photos on Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop!
Edmonton’s creative community has grown SO MUCH since I’ve started blogging and it’s so amazing to experience! There’s a whole new generation of creatives who are inspiring me to keep pushing myself. Thank you so much for the love and kind words!
For sure! I answered most of this question in a recent blog post. But just to delve a little deeper into your ask, being a part of the fashion industry (if that’s indeed the industry you’re referring to) isn’t a difficult task at all. Try interning or working different boutiques, magazines, or fashion labels to start off – a simple Google search of what fashion companies are hiring can do the trick.
As for my struggles, that’ll have to be another post 🙂
Hope that answers your questions for now!
