***No longer writes for our blog but some of her posts are still available to view.***
Okay, I’ve been putting this off long enough, but in my defence I seriously don’t know what to say about myself. I’ve actually considered just posting the bio I have on my dating profiles, but I won’t do that.
So, let’s see… I’m Alina, 23, and living in Toronto. I’m originally from Montreal, which is how I know these lovely ladies, but moved to Toronto for university. For the first time in forever (yes, that’s a Disney reference) I am no longer a student. I just finished my graduate studies in Publishing, and the goal is to be a full time editor.
I’ve known these ladies for a pretty long time. Brittany I’ve known since birth (our moms were besties), and Julie and I got close in high school. Starting a beauty blog is honestly something I never imagined doing considering I only really got into makeup about a year ago (May 2016). I had just finished university and I decided I wanted a change looks wise. So I changed my glasses and got contacts, added highlights to my hair, and splurged at Sephora. Books on the other hand have always been something I’ve been passionate about. I was a huge reader as a teenager, and I knew from a young age that I wanted to be an editor. It’s basically a life long dream that I’m slowly turning into a reality.
Other random stuff about me: I like travelling, yoga, dogs, Disney, spicy food, tea, getting to know people, and learning new things. I’m a feminist and very open-minded, and I’m super passionate about education and my career.
I’m ecstatic that people are enjoying the blog, and hope that you continue to do so.
