Featured Style Blogger: Lil Bits of Chic

Paulina from Lil Bits of Chic

How long have you been blogging?
1 year and 1 month. My blog just turned 1 in April.

What were the main reasons you started a blog?
I’ve always been a creative person; however over the last five years working a full time job in the financial services industry in professional attire with numbers all day took its toll. One night I felt I had so much creativity pent up that I started painting frantically. One painting turned into 3 and I figured "I should document this on a blog". I started blogging about my paintings but shortly thereafter my passion for fashion and photography kicked in and became the focal point of my blog.  My blog has become an enjoyable hobby and fulfills my creative energy.

What inspires you?
In life, I am inspired by my parents, who instilled great values, morals and work ethic in me. Stylewise, my mom has always had a great eye and even now I always raid her closet to see what's new, what's back in style, what I can "borrow" ;)  In my creative life, I am inspired by other creative people: whether they are bloggers, artists, musicians, etc. More than anything I am inspired by people who have made something out of nothing, and those who have become successful by doing what they love like Oprah.

What do you like to do in your spare time? 
In my spare time, I like relaxing from a busy day at work with a glass of wine with my boys (my boyfriend and my dog Coco). I love spending time with my family, grabbing a drink with my girlfriends or going out dancing.  I also enjoy painting, surfing the web for ideas and of course checking out other blogs.

How long have you lived in San Diego? Tell us what you love about SD.
I was born and raised in good ol’ South San Diego. I even stayed here for college and attended UCSD. I love a lot of things about San Diego: I love that San Diego is rich in culture, being that we are close to the border it allows me to stay connected to my root, I love the weather, and more than anything that San Diego has many gorgeous and diverse areas of town: Downtown, Coronado, North Park, Old Town, Hillcrest, Point Loma, Little Italy, the list is endless….
