I’m Lola – No that’s not my real name but a nickname and tribute to my puppy Lola Doll who passed on from a seizure disorder. It’s also easier to spell and pronounce than my real name (Chantea) which is constantly said and spelled wrong, lol. I’ve been married for 10 years as of (01/19/2019) and I have 3 kids and 2 dogs.
Where are you from?
I was born in Reykjavik, Iceland and moved around the states (my dad was in the Navy) and currently reside in Florida.
How tall are you?
I’m 5’8 (34” pants inseam)
What camera do you use?
I use a Canon EOS Rebel SL1 for beauty & review videos and blog photos and a Canon SX730 HS for blogging on my YouTube channel. I also have different lenses and filters.
Who takes your pictures?
Mainly my husband Kevin. He used to be a photographer so he’s always my go to for photos. On occasion I will work with another photographer but he’s usually my go to.
Why did you start a blog?
I started blogging in 2009 as a hobby and decided recently (2017) to try and make this my career. I love sharing affordable finds and tips and tricks that I learn along the way with others. My love for beauty, fashion and home decor came from my mother and grandmother and my love for travel and fashion as well (the man wears a suit almost everyday, lol) from my dad. Even the confusing editing and website woes, lol.
Always remember you’re beautiful!
