You might be wondering: Who is this person behind Vivaglamx3? What is she like and why did she once start a blog? Well, I’ll get into that last one right away, but first off, a short intro. 17 years ago – I’m 24 now, so do the math – I moved from Antwerp (my hometown) to the US. A life changing experience, in the good sense! I lived in Minnesota for four years, and I can honestly say those were the best years of my life. After that my family and I moved back to Belgium. To Bruges, the Venice of the North. And that’s where I have been living ever since. Even though the cozy, picturesque city offers tranquility and peace, I do miss the greatness of the city.
That is one of the reasons I studied Hotelmanagement. After graduating I was lucky enough to immediately find a job in the sector. So for the moment, I am working in a trendy hotel in Bruges.
In my spare time I love spending time with my boyfriend and daughter, researching, reading a good book or watching reality series, shopping, travelling.. Throw in some good food here and there, and all is well.
So, that’s that for the ‘me’ part. You might also want to know what brought me to starting my own blog. Why did I decide to share my passion and throw it out there? Well, I had been watching Youtube videos, reading blogs etc. for quite a while. At times, I didn’t share the same opinion, had another view on things or just had my own say. It frustrated me that I couldn’t bring that out into the world, leaving a comment wasn’t enough. I wanted to share my opinion, be creative and share the passion I had been carrying for a long time.
So one day I decided to start a blog, so I could write down and organize my thoughts. You can’t imagine how great it felt when I read my first comment. OMG, SOMEONE ACTUALLY READ MY BLOG!!!!!! I was so excited haha, but mostly super motivated. Writing became addicting, I couldn’t stop, I got to know new people and slowly started to find my way into the blogosphere. I discovered that this is my thing. And so it still is. Welcome to Vivaglamx3!
