Fashionista Of The Month
– Loriana Savo –
1) We would love to get to know you more. Tell us a little bit about yourself.
Hello! My name is Loriana and I live in Toronto and I am a fourth-year University student studying business. I am the creator of TheBlissfulBrunette.com, @TheBlissfulBrunette, and I’ve always had it in the back of my mind to begin a blog and finally one day I was sitting in my kitchen thinking about interesting and attractive names to call my blog and finally it hit me! And that is how The Blissful Brunette was born (and because I’m a brunette of course)! My hobbies definitely include shopping, shopping and more shopping! When I’m not drafting blog posts or taking photos I’m visiting different cafés in the City and trying all the coffee! Some people may call me crazy but my favourite caffeinated drinks include large black coffees with a sprinkle of cinnamon on top and almond milk lattes! (Seriously if you haven’t tried cinnamon in your coffee you’re not living because it literally tastes and smells like a cinnamon bun). If you haven’t noticed yet, my style is definitely monochromatic because I definitely agree that there is beauty in simplicity! Visit my Instagram if you don’t believe me!
2) When did you first become interested in fashion?
I always had a passion for fashion, but it wasn’t until I reached University that I decided to share my creative passion. So, I decided to create a blog and Instagram page dedicated to Fashion and Lifestyle inspiration. I attend University in Toronto so since I’m fairly close to the Eaton Centre Mall, I’m never not shopping! (It’s dangerous).
3) What is your favorite place to shop and why?
My favourite store would have to be Aritzia because of the quality. I’m all about quality over quantity and I will admit that they have such beautiful, unique clothes.
4) What is your must have accessory?
My must have accessory are definitely rings! I can’t leave the house without my rings or else I’ll feel empty and plain!
5) What is your favorite season and why?
This is my favourite question! It absolutely has to be Summer or Fall. Summer because it’s always warm and very limited layering and Fall because Fall fashion! Duhhh!
6) Who is your main fashion inspiration?
This is a tough one because there are so many inspiring individuals in the fashion industry. If I had to chose, I say would Alexa Chung and @dannonkcollardmua, the Blogger.
7) What does your typical day look like?
Well it’s not THAT exciting. It depends on the day but for the most part, I wake up, have a super large coffee, breakfast and I’m usually spending the morning taking photos, or thinking of new blog post ideas. On a ‘not so slow day’ I’m usually awake at 7:30-8:00AM getting ready for school or work. I would head to school or work for the day, then come home and either go to the mall, watch a movie or out for dinner with my significant other! The time spent in between I’m taking, editing photos and drafting blog posts 🙂
8) What are your future goals, in general?
Well my number one is to graduate University! Then once I’m out, I plan on travelling to Europe for a month and experiencing their culture. Then once I’m ready to find a lifelong career, I intend to get into either PR, or HR for a well known company. So far the future is looking bright!
9) What makes you feel beautiful?
What makes me feel beautiful? Hmmm this is a great question. No it’s not makeup! I don’t want to sound like a Diva but I will admit that my eyelashes make me feel beautiful. The simplest thing! I was never a fan of lash extension but I finally decided to give it a try and I fell in love! They’re so easy because I can literally wake up and leave the house without having to worry about applying coats and coats of mascara then dreading having to remove it.
10) What makes your heart beat?
Since 80% of my body is caffeine I would say that’s my life saver! Lol!
Realistically, I’m so fortunate because I have such a wonderful family who supports and inspires me every day to work harder and achieve my lifelong goals no matter how silly they may sound.
My mother who is my best friend is the most amazing person because she encourages me to love myself and pursue my passions. Without family I wouldn’t be in the situation that I am right now and I’m so fortunate.
