Get Personal With Me







2016 
It was a great year for me. It was full of adventures, learning experiences and opportunities. I learned how to be a better blogger and share more and more content with the world. Enjoy explore variety different parts of Toronto, finding new spots to take photos; such as cafe cafe, new restaurants to try out. 

Blogging is not as easy as it looks, hundreds and thousands of photos later finding that one perfect photo to post. A photo may look simple, but the work behind it is often neglected. A photo goes through the process of filtering, carefully selecting, editing and then being posted. 

I remember when I started blogging in 2014, it was under rated and not high concentrated with users. There were a smaller amount of users on Instagram platform as well. I started off with focusing on Instagram first, then realizing that I have more photos and contents to post and share to the world, I decided to expand my platform to blog as well, where I can share more contents and photos. 

Why I started Instagram?
I was in last year of high school when I started posting contents on Instagram. I wanted to focus on school but I was not sure what I wanted major in university. A lot you may not know, I went to an uniformed high school, I only get to wear my own clothes once in a whole month, which was the date that I always look forward to. That is when I realized how much I love fashion and keeping up with trends, which triggered my desire to share how I style clothing to the world. Honestly, I started my account for the sake of fun and to continue exploring my passion and what really interests me. 

How I got to where I am today?
Completely honest with you, I don't even know. One thing I can tell you is it will take time, a lot of time. You will not be considered Instagram famous in a matter of one day or one week. It took me two almost three years to get to where I am today. Consistency is also important, if you don't post often, you may be forgotten, so posting on a daily has the best result.

What is it like to be a Full Time Student and a Blogger?
I am currently a second year Economic major, I started first year majoring in a field that I was not interested in and doing it for my parents, I decided to switch my major this fall. With a full course load and blogging on the side, it was not easy. Along with a part time job along side with all these hectic schedule, it was insane. It is all about finding the balance in between these three positions, I have classes most of time throughout the week, on my shorter class dates, I would take my time out from studying and make time to shoot some photos. During my weekends, I am normally out shooting during the day, editing photos and studying during the night. A lot people think I don't do anything throughout the day, all I have to do is staying at home all day and work behind the computer screen. Which is completely false, of course I do that on days when I have enough content to post, I would stay at home editing on my blog posts and photos, as well as studying and do my readings. Throughout this hectic schedule, I learned that do what you love and you would not regret a day of "work".

Advice From Me
I think the most important part of Instagram and blogging is staying true to yourself. I always love making contents, especially when I create contents that I can impress myself. It is important not to lose yourself in the social media world. No one is perfect, there will be love and hates, you cannot create contents that please everyone. As long you love what you are doing, it is while worth it.

2017
There are a lot of things I look forward to in 2017, it will be a year with more adventures and opportunities. I look forward to learn more about myself in the coming year. I cannot till more adventures on traveling and exploring different parts of the world. 



Love,
Chloe Zhang

Chanel Le Boy Old Medium Bag Review

Introducing my second Chanel bag: Le Boy Old Medium, yes I know I just purchased my first Chanel bag less than three months ago. It was actually not my first Chanel bag, I have previously purchased a Chanel Wallet on Chain in lambskin, but I sold it after 2 months of purchasing it because it was impossible for me to take care of lambskin pieces, I am not gentle and careful with my bags.  To be honest with you, at first this bag was a total impulse purchase, I just wanted to buy something for myself for the holiday season. To be completely real with you, I NEVER EVER receive any gifts from my parents during holiday season or my birthday, my parents was never a giving gift parents. I wanted to reward myself with something for 2017, you know sometimes you just gotta treat yo self a little. When I was making this purchase, I was deciding between whether to get the classic flap in medium size with Silver hardware and Caviar or this bag, I ended up getting this bag due to 3 reasons: 1.

Holiday Gift Guides: His & Hers 2017

It is that time of the year again! Busy holiday season filled with many holiday shoppings lists. Every year, although I don't have a big friend group but I still struggled with buying the perfect Christmas gift for my friends. This year I have put together a little gift guide ideas, for both male and female. To be honest, females are probably the hardest to shop for, there's just too many options to select from. I even have trouble choosing what I want most of time. When it comes to gifting, unless the person is super specific with exactly the item she or he wants, it will be a struggle. But knowing the person's style, favourite colour and sizes are essentials to buy the "perfect" gift. Everyone's style is pretty different, different individuals like different pieces. I have put together a couple different gift guides for people with different style and individualities. That being said, my gift guides are according to my own opinion and what I think its most …
