About Me

Hey there! Thanks for checking out my page. I am 25, originally from Vancouver, Canada.

I have always loved fashion from a young age, and knew that I wanted to pursue a career in the field. At 15 I started interning with Vancouver Fashion week and led on to model on their runway for two seasons when I was 19 and 20 years old. I have a creative eye and a natural knack for styling. I completed my Fashion Marketing diploma while working as a visual merchandiser and worked my way up to management. Although I love my 9-5 job, my end goal is to work for myself. Bringing my own passions for styling and designing into a business. I am writing my fashion blog to be able to share my knowledge and passion with like minded individuals. 

My second love is fitness; completing my personal training certificate by age 20. I found the gym to be my happy place and it became my healthy obsession after my friends started complimenting my gains. I always thought to myself, how can I push myself further, achieve more, build more? Through trial an error I found a fitness regime that works. I hope to inspire others who are new to the gym the way that I have inspired myself. I want to motivate others who feel they are not being challenged enough, or have had a halt in their fitness progress. 

Last but not least, my passion and love for travelling! I was fortunate at a young age that my family and I spent summers travelling back home to Croatia and around Europe. The culture, people and overall atmosphere in Europe has always made me feel more at peace; more than I have ever felt in my native country. I love using my creative flair to take photographs in new places, to share with all of you and share my experiences through text. 

Follow my journey with me.
