I like to blame being born a Leo for my choice of passions in life. Some of which are characterized by: – caring, passionate, loving, energetic, goal-driven, loyal, optimistic, positive and warm. Once I find something that I am extremely passionate about and love doing, it becomes the center of my world. This is how I became obsessed with Digital Marketing, SEO, Affiliate Marketing, the Online World, Online Business, E-commerce, Blogging, Online Entrepreneurship, Traveling, Fashion, Decor, Lifestyle, and Health. And I also developed undeniable obsessions with hot chocolate, coffee, Starbucks, Pinot Gris, London, Paris, Italy, Santorini, and Greece.
My personality is best described a mixture of classic ambivert (go figure!). Yes if you’ve figured that out already, I exhibit qualities of both extroversion and introversion and just like most people, I don’t quite fit into either category. Here are some of the qualities I found myself in the most: –
- I am usually drawn to people from all ages and different background, culture and nationalities. I get energy from social gatherings, and I’m pretty outgoing, and I love to interact and socialize with like minded people, intelligent, confident, motivated, goal driven, passionate about life, business oriented and also anyone who loves to share the same passion as me and not afraid to encourage and empower others. (This refers to my Extroverted side).
- I sometimes find that it’s quite draining to be around lots of people. Especially being around people that are quite arrogant, egocentric, negative, manipulative and judgemental. I do prefer my own freedom, peace, solitude and quiet time and I usually do crave alone time in my free time especially when my mind is continuously reflecting about life and any relevant scenario that had occurred recently. I also love to reflect on lots of things about my life. I also enjoy my alone time, while I’m in the mood of deep, meaningful thoughts especially about my short and long term goals in life. I also love to be alone especially when I’m busy thinking and working on my Online Business. (This obviously refers to my Introverted counterpart).
- Sometimes it really depends on my mood and likings. I can be extremely social and admittedly very quiet, very observant, at times shy and a bit silly when I’m around people I am close to, not so close to and strangers. And sometimes when I am around people who I can easily get along with and have found that instant connection with. Yes, I enjoy and love both. (Refers to being an Ambivert person).

How it all started?
Some of you may want to know how this passion of mine started, right? It’s pretty simple as it all stems from my childhood.
My first cultural and travel experience was at the age of 11 when I moved to another country with my family. I’ve traveled much since then. Having seen some cities in New Zealand where I grew up, I decided to travel to other countries. However, I didn’t have money to travel as my parents were never able to fund my tickets and travel expenses. I decided to work part-time while still studying in high school. At the age of 17 in 2002, I had finished high school, and I had enough savings and traveled to some countries in Asia for a few months. After that, I returned to New Zealand to work full-time for 7 years (during my late teens to mid-twenties) while in between I also traveled to Europe in 2006 during my annual leave. When I returned from Europe, I continued to work full-time for another year and then I left to obtain my degree at University.
Three years later, I traveled to Australia in 2009, and then I traveled to Europe again in 2011 while on my semester break from University and then I returned home to complete my Bachelor’s degree.
In 2014, I returned to Europe again for the 3rd time, visiting different countries that I have already been to in the past and also to some places that I had not yet visited. You may have noticed that Europe is my favorite continent to visit, as I never get sick of it. The more I visit Europe, the more I gain better perspectives on life, and it inspires and motivates me, even more, to write and share my experiences.
In 2014, I started my online business, as I realized that I also enjoy offering products related to fashion and beauty that are useful for everyday wear, travel, different lifestyle, special events and much more. I also enjoy sharing information, tips and product reviews about fashion travel accessories, as I like to travel with good fashion sense and with comfort. As much as I love traveling, I make sure that I travel with nice flat shoes, skinny jeans, fashionable tops and sometimes with comfortable dresses while touring around cities. The purpose of traveling in style is to allow me to fit in with locals and avoid looking like a typical tourist. I try my best not to dress like a tourist (plus it can be practical at times as I’m not an easy target for pickpockets!).
Moreover, I also developed a passion for home decor, healthy lifestyle, online entrepreneur and motivating others.
This site was born to provide you the best fashion, beauty, decor, lifestyle and travel accessories that you can use daily or before you venture on your next holiday.
I hope I didn’t bore you to death with my long profile.
Bon Voyage and Carpe Diem:)
