About Me & My Blog

No comments:
Due to my forgetful tendencies my scheduled post for today will have to make an appearance next week, but since I had this ready to go in my drafts folder I thought I might as well take the opportunity to share a bit about me today instead. I so enjoyed reading these from other bloggers in the past few weeks so I hope you do as well!

By now I think you would already know my name is Nadia. I'm 24 and I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
I'm the baby of the family, with one older brother. Together with my parents and my grandma, who I am super close with, we are a quiet, happy family and that's just how I like it!

My background is in media, marketing and design, currently being put to use at a large foodservice company. Being in the food industry does have it's perks, but it isn't always good for my will power to have treats always lying around the office. I love my job. I have an amazing boss, a flexible schedule and am able to work from home at least once a week. What else could I ask for?

What I Love to Do
I have always been passionate about writing, design and photography - and the beauty of blogging is that it combines all three! When I'm not working or blogging you can find me enjoying the outdoors with Tyler and my adoptive fur baby Dakota, attempting to DIY something, or watching way too many episodes of my latest Netflix addiction.
Favorite Food
Pasta is my weakness. I could eat the tri-coloured tortelllini from my favourite restaurant for every meal. It's tossed in a pesto cream sauce that I want to buy by the gallon. Other favourites: gaucamole, hummus, and anything with mushrooms or olives. And melted cheese. Okay I'm hungry now.

Favorite Color
In typical blogger fashion, any metallic or shade in the blue-green spectrum speaks to me.

Standard Coffee Order
I don't usually drink coffee, but I am tea obsessed. If I'm making at home, my fall favourite is Pumpkin Chai from David's Tea, but you can see some of my other top recommendations here and here. My favourite drink from Starbucks is an Eggnog Chai during the holidays.
Standard Bar Order
I'm a sucker for a good Caesar. They're a Canadian thing, but seriously they taste good at any time of year or day if I'm being honest. Plus, the tomato and celery count as vegetable content right? 

Places I Shop
Express, Forever21, Winners, Dynamite, Old Navy, you can see all my favourites regularly featured in my outfit posts each week!

Bedtime and Wake up Time
I'm a night owl. Since I have a pretty long commute, when you factor in gym time, cooking and eating it can be almost 9 PM by the time I have a minute of free time. I often can't go to bed until after midnight, and I will wake up between 7 and 7:30 to get ready for work. Maybe 7:45 if I'm getting too snooze-happy.

Beauty Products I Can't Live Without
As a beauty blogger this is tough, but if I had to narrow it down I could manage day to day just fine with the products in this post.
What I Blog About
The majority of my posts are fashion/beauty with some lifestyle and DIY posts thrown in every so often. I love DIYing but I'm so easily distracted that it may take me months to complete a simple project. I'm hoping to get my act together and post a series of DIY gifts for the holidays, so stay tuned!

First Blog I Read
I'm not actually sure to be honest. I've been reading blogs for so many years, and it's hard enough for me to remember what I ate for breakfast this morning. It was probably Laura's first blog, but right now she's at Buy Now, Blog Later.

How Did I Start Blogging
I had been thinking about starting a blog for a long time, but last year around this time I just decided to take the plunge. My first post was an OOTD and I've never looked back!
Why I Blog
Like I mentioned above, I love having a creative outlet for my passions and being able to share things I love with others who have similar interests. Tyler is amazingly supportive of this little hobby of mine, and I am so thankful for all of his encouragement. I've "met" some amazing people that I never would know if I hadn't started blogging, and I just wish we could all hang out together some day!
