Hi Vivian! How do you use your platform to impact those who follow you?
I started my blog and Instagram to document little beautiful things around me and my travels and to slowly connect with more and more people who share the same esthetics and lifestyle. I’m passionate about travelling but I realize not everyone has the resources to travel around the world. So, I'm focusing more on uncovering hidden gems in Vancouver and encouraging my followers to just travel in their own city.
What’s your personal style mantra/philosophy?
I love timeless contemporary fashion and interiors.
Happy Chinese New Year! What's your favourite thing about this time of year—and how do you celebrate with family and friends?
My favourite thing is to find the unique red envelopes for red packets, and I usually just have a New Year’s Eve feast with my family!
What's your fave type of gift to give?
Chinese New Year is all about spending time with family and I always opt to bring something that’s edible and shareable along with me to holiday get-togethers. I also suggest gifting some special-edition makeup to your mom and favourite aunt—like this translucent powder from Laura Mercier. It fits all skin types and tones!
