This blog began back in 2008 as a personal outlet. I would go on about my work at the time and what life was like for a twenty-something living in the city. Since those early days, aliciafashionista.com has grown and evolved into so much more than I ever thought it could be. I blog for the everyday fashionista who loves to travel, sees beauty in the ordinary, and believes that confidence is the best accessory. It’s here that you’ll find me documenting my personal style, travel adventures, sharing the odd makeup tip and pretty much anything that catches my fancy. Thank you for being here - I only hope it can bring you as much happiness as it brings me. Now, grab a cup of coffee. You've got some reading to do!
Though you may have thought otherwise, I am half Chinese and half Caucasian.
I live in an apartment with my fiancé (or Beyoncé as I sometimes like to call him) in Vancouver, B.C., Canada.
I’m proud to say that I wear a North American size 10 (UK/AU 14) and am just an average sized girl with a regular clothing budget. Everything featured on my blog is something I like to wear and have chosen or approved myself.
In 2011 I started my own business, Capital Q Creative. I work with local small businesses on managing their social media. I also blog, but you’re here so you know that ;)
I’m a social butterfly at heart and love to meet new people, make friends, and spend as much time as I can with my family and close pals. I’ve started a new Following Her Dreams interview series to share some of these amazing people with you.
My laugh is loud, distinctive, and perhaps to some, offensive?! I also suspect that I laugh more than the average person.
I have a penchant for crosswork puzzles, fresh peonies, all things British, a morning coffee, the South of France, photo walks, Sunday adventures, and French Bulldogs.
I believe in being kind and doing amazing work.
And I genuinely hope this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship!
