Do you love fashion & travel as much as I do? Then you’ve come to the right place! Welcome to Live Style Travel, a blog about petite fashion, travel and daily life here in Atlanta. My passion for style started at a young age and has only grown over the years. My hope is to share my personal style with other young ladies as well as show you a wide range of products from designer to high-street brands! I’m also a wife and mom but still the same young fashionista at heart and I believe that you can be stylish at any age. Whether you are single, married, a mama or not, the right outfit and/or accessory can give you self-confidence and when you feel good about yourself anything is possible!
Frequently Asked Questions
Is blogging my full-time job?
Currently blogging is not my full time job. I actually work full-time for a major telecommunications company as a network engineer. I’ve been working for the same company since 2004. Blogging is something I do that I love but at some point I do hope it evolves into my full time job. I actually have a plan in place for that though.
How did I get started blogging?
I started blogging in 2007 when i had my first child as blogging was just becoming a “thing” and I was your typical mom blogger. During those first years I had several domains but eventually blogging because more of a chore and not something I enjoyed so I took a few years off. Fast forward to 2016 my kids were a little bigger and I missed blogging a lot. I realized I wanted to come back but not as a mom blogger. I wanted to blog about something I loved…FASHION! It’s not that I didn’t love my children but I’m so much more than just a mom. I love clothing, shoes & accessories and I felt like my blog was my escape. In other words this was MY TIME to get away for just being mom…..a little piece of the internet just for me!
What Sizes Do I wear?
I post the sizes I purchase for each outfit at the bottom of any fashion related posts for your own reference. I’m only 5’1″ so I try to share petite-friendly styles. My weight fluctuates between 97lbs. and 106lbs. I’m usually XS in tops & dresses, 24 in Most Jeans and size 6 in Shoes.
What is my nationality?
I’m Spanish (Panama & Spain) and Scottish-Irish on my moms side and Belgian-French on my Dad’s side. I recently took a DNA test with MyHeritage and I was shocked at the percentages!
What do I shoot my content with?
This can be a complicated answer but I’ll make it as simple as possible. For video and vlogs I use the Canon G7X which is what most vloggers and youtubers use and I highly recommend this little point and shoot because it’s lightweight and compact and takes amazing high-def videos.
For outfit photos shoot with the Nikon D750 body which is a full frame camera meaning you will get more photo in the frame. When shooting outfit pics I switch back and forth between an 85 mm lens and 50 mm lens.
For indoor home/lifestyle shots I still use my Nikon D750 but I switch to my 35 mm lens. A 35 mm lens is great for indoor photos because you may not have a ton of space to back up so you will get more in your shot. I linked all of my exact equipment below also in case you would like to purchase the same gear! If you are just starting out I would purchase a DSLR with only the body because the kit lens that comes with it is not that great. Then purchase one of the lenses I mentioned separately. The 50 mm 1.8 is a great lens that most bloggers use and very budget-friendly too!
