Lisa and The Lovely Memoir

I stumbled across a blog called The Lovely Memoir a couple weeks a go. Lisa's photos and LookBook are amazing and i suggest you all take a peak. But i did do a little interview with her so you can find out a little more.

So what made you choose the title The Lovely Memoir ?

When I was trying to come up with the name for my blog, I knew I wanted the word "Memoir" in it. Memoir means a written account of someone's life; an autobiography. I knew that I was going to be making a lifestyle/fashion/beauty blog, so I thought that the word was fitting. I was going to incorporate everything from my daily life into this one blog; my own little lovely fashion memoir.

How did you get into photography? 

My love for photography started at a young age, but grew even greater when I was in the yearbook committee back in high school. I was one of the yearbook photographers who went around school taking pictures of the school events. I just loved it, then one random day at a picnic my friend was throwing, my boyfriend Kevin and I picked up her DSLR camera and was playing around with it the entire time, that moment we decided we would get one of our own. In 2009 we started our company KNL Photography, and it has been a work in progress ever since.

I know in California it's not as cold as England but what are your three winter essentials ?

California is warm, but it can get quite cold during the fall and winter! My three winter essentials has got to be scarves, leather boots, and trench coats. Winter has become my favorite season because of all of the style possibilities!

Any winter beauty products you would recommend?

I would definitely recommend a good moisturizer! My skin gets so parched in the winter that I need a really good simple moistureiser. The one that I’m using right now is called Clinique: Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion. I would also recommend a nice bronzer like Mac’s Refined Golden, just a brush of that on the sides of my face and down my nose and I feel like I have a sun kissed glow all year round.

Your all time favourite shop ?

I love to shop at Urban Outfitters, H&M, Forever 21, and Zaras. For my online shopping, I like to shop at ASOS. I also love to go thrift shopping. I think it’s really fun to go and find amazing pieces for a low price.

How did you spend your Black Friday?

I actually spent it shopping for tvs and computer monitors! I’m not a very lucky person when it comes to huge sale days like Black Friday. The malls get kind of crazy with all of the people shoving and pushing their ways into the aisles. But I shop on a daily basis, so I don’t really mind.   

What did you think about the Versace collection at H&M ?

I thought the collection was gorgeous. I especially loved the jewelry and the belts! Did you see the gold belt? It was beautiful!

Who is your style icon ?

My style icons are: Audrey Hepburn, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, and Coco Chanel. They are all beautiful, elegant, and chic.

So how are you going to spend Christmas?

I’m so excited for Christmas! I will be spending it with my family, going to Christmas mass, then having a huge dinner. 

Any traditions?

Going to Christmas Mass is something that we do every year. I love this time of year when the entire family gets together and enjoys each other's company. 

What do you hope for The Lovely Memoir in 2012?

I’m so happy with the direction I’m going toward with The Lovely Memoir. I’m so happy that I have been getting such a positive response. I mainly blog for fun and to share awesome things that I find interesting. I hope to continue to do so in 2012.
