Hi Irene! Tell us about yourself and your life to start.
I am a fashion/motherhood content creator from beautiful Vancouver. I am currently on leave from my day job to take care of my two-year-old toddler, Livvy, who puts a smile on my face every single day. Creating content is my creative outlet and my way of taking a break from motherhood. Come by my channel and say hi!
How do you use your platform to impact those who follow you?
Motherhood is the hardest job I’ve ever had so I want my platform to be a place where fellow moms can come to relax and get outfit inspiration for their next outing with their little ones.
What’s your personal style mantra?
If the outfit is not comfortable, I ain’t wearing it. I am a firm believer that an outfit can look good and feel good at the same time. For me, feeling comfortable in my outfit is what gives me confidence. Whether the outfit is formal, casual or just for lounging in at home, I always try to put together an outfit that is easy to wear and stylish so I can be the best me!
What’s your top holiday 2021 “glitter” gift pick?
The Glitter Superstar Sneakers from Golden Goose ($665 at SSENSE, a Canadian company based out of Montreal). I can’t say no to Golden Goose sneakers and these glitter ones are just perfect for holiday fun!
What’s your favourite thing about the holiday season?
Spending that extra time with my family and my toddler is my favourite thing to do during the holiday season. Like last, this year we are staying local and enjoying festivities around town. I’m looking forward to taking Livvy to different neighbourhoods to see the holiday décor and lights. We usually have a big turkey dinner with everyone on Christmas Eve. All that leftover turkey will become congee, sandwiches or soup. I can’t wait!
