Mary Lynn Kiley: Interview

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

For me these are the three key elements of success.

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

I am a funky girl from Quebec City who loves fashion, photography, film and art in general. Through the blog, I want to inspire people and get them to develop their own style and be themselves! Fashion is more than just a trend that dies after a few months.

 

That's why my slogan is: because real luxury is being yourself.

Why do you do what you do?

Because this is what I love. Also, it allows me to be myself and express my creativity.

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

I always knew that I wanted a platform to express my creativity, my ideas and my taste for fashion. As far as I can remember 

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

The toughest thing for me is definitely time management. I am very passionate the blog and I could always do more, but I have to keep a balance between work, my passion and my personal life. It is not always easy.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

4 people inspire me every day:

My mother, Emilie (co-founder of LFC), my best friend Angelic and Lady Gaga.

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

We all make mistakes. I don’t regret anything, I mean these mistakes made me who I am and where I am now.

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

There are several major projects coming up! We want to continue to grow, develop more partnerships and we would perhaps start writing in English.

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

Do what you love and what makes you happy and proud! At the end of the day only you know how you feel about your life.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

Dream big and make it happen.
