Welcome again to Feature Friday. This week we are truly excited to be interviewing the lovely Loi.
LOI – LOREEBLOOM.COM
WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT IS YOUR BLOG NAME?
Hi, my name is Loi and I’m the blogger behind Loree Bloom
HOW’D YOUR BLOG NAME COME ABOUT?
I’ve lived my life having my name mispronounced many times over, even when I pronounce it to people, they still get it wrong.
I thought, being the silly person that I am, it would be hilarious to use one of the mispronunciations as my “name”.The main suspects are normally Lo-ie, Louie and Lo-ree (where did the “r”come from…? No idea). But out of the three, I felt like Loree had a nice ring to it.
Then I decided to add the word Bloom, as to me this represented beauty and because well, why not? And that’s how Loree Bloom was born.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN BLOGGING FOR, WHERE DID YOUR PASSION COME FROM AND WHAT DO YOU BLOG ABOUT?
My passion came from my urge to be creative.
I’ve always loved makeup and photography, and wanted to find a way to incorporate the two. Hence, I started my Instagram in late 2014, and I created my blog in July 2015.
My main focus is my Instagram account and I put a lot of love into it, however at times it still baffles me that people enjoy the images that I create.
My blog is mainly about beauty and makeup, however I’m branching out to include my other passions such as style and travel.
WHAT HAVE BEEN SOME OF YOUR HIGHLIGHTS THROUGH BLOGGING EG EVENTS YOU’VE ATTENDED, BRANDS YOU’VE WORKED WITH OR REACH A CERTAIN MILESTONE.
As I haven’t been in the game for long, I’ve only attended a few events. A highlight for me as a blogger is meeting creative people, as this has given me the opportunity to hear their stories and a chance for me to share mine.
TELL US A QUIRK ABOUT YOU?
It takes skill to fall over all the time, even whist standing still. I have that skill 😉
