About Me!

I’m Whitney and this is my personal blog on all things lifestyle- beauty, fashion, food, and anything else I find interesting. I live in Richmond, BC (though I mostly associate myself from Vancouver) and graduated from UBC in Electrical Engineering. Currently, I am working as an Engineer in Training. I’m a geek who loves to write and share! I started blogging because I wanted to be more creative outside of school. Also, I always wanted to be an author since I was a kid, and I still hope to publish a book in the future! Ever since I could read, I hoped I could be someone who writes words that people will read, and where else to start, other than a blog?

The beauty blogger face

I was aiming to write a blog on my academic life and incorporating my geeky love for Harry Potter, but this blog has evolved into totally something else! I used to hate makeup and all things beauty, mostly because I wear my glasses 24/7 and I didn’t feel right with contacts on either, hence I never felt comfortable with my appearance. Sometimes, I still don’t.

The fashion side

The fashion side

When I started blogging, I became more comfortable with myself and I wanted to share what kind of beauty/fashion looks I go for. I also am an avid sushi and dessert muncher, so beware, there will be a lot of foodporn happening on my blog!

    Hi foodie! Nice blog. I can definitely relate to your passion for ramen and macarons. Though I haven’t been to any good ramen places in Vancouver yet.
    Keep up the good food-work!
