Laiza Lounge

Hey people, today we have Laiza, the brain behind the fab blog Laiza Lounge. Laiza recently launched her blog and i decided to sit with do an email interview with the very stylish blogger to see what got her into blogging and what her blog is all about. Enjoy! 

Why did you start a blog?
I started LaizaLounge to express myself through the things that inspire me, and also areas that i am passionate about. In addition to this, i plan to inspire people all over the world to believe in themselves (this could be even through their personal styles), find their passion/purpose, and achieve/live a purpose-driven life.

What is your blog about?

My blog is about ME! It really is about fashion, styling, art&design, lifestyle and inspiration. The inspiration part has a lot attached to it. From education, community/international development (which is the area i am really passionate about), motivational speaking and so on. I will be showing works and interviewing people that are positively changing lives around the world and also other industry folks. Lets just say- Fashion meets philanthropy and inspiration.

What are your future goals for Laiza's Lounge?
Even though i just started, i see LaizaLounge as more than a blog in future. For that, i will keep you posted.

What inspires you?
Good questions! Hmmm! Because i have come to appreciate life at this point, life inspires me. Once there is life, there is hope! So having hope, faith, God, wonderful friends, family, thinking about the great opportunities still ahead of me and doing what i love definitely keeps me moving and inspires me. Also, knowing that i was made to give life and inspire people in different ways, no matter how small, even by just letting them know that they have wonderful potentials in them.
One quote i go by that keeps me on track is: "To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded!" ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

What is your style? I don't have a specific style. Sometimes, i try new things and it works. But i keep it chic and classy. Whatever i wear, it blends with my personality and i wear it with confidence. I think that's what matters most about personal style.
What fashion item can you not do without?
Hahaha! My handbag. That's one fashion item i cant do without, because i can chip in other fashion items in it :)
