Frequently Asked Questions
why did you start blogging?
I have been blogging since 2008! I first started blogging under the name ‘Fab Brunette’ (because online stranger danger was a real thing back then), and had a blog named Ramblings of a Fab Brunette, which later turned into Adventures of a Fab Brunette. I used the blog to share bits of my life as a young mom living in the Toronto area, and then when we moved to the West Coast, I changed the name of my blog again to West Coast Mama! Lots of changes to the blog names, but c’est la vie! Over the years, I’ve blogged about family, travel, minimalism, entrepreneurship, and I continue to do so today!
what type of camera do you use?
I use an Olympus OM-D Mark which I love! It’s a mirrorless digital camera which lets me take amazing pictures and video, without making it too complicated for me! I don’t consider myself a ‘photographer’, I just wanted a good camera to take pictures with – and I love that it can connect to my iPhone wirelessly so I can easily edit photos and upload quickly!
what do you do for work?
I call myself a serial entrepreneur for a reason – I’ve launched so many different businesses and careers for myself in the past 15 years! I’ve been a cupcake baker, a wedding and events planner, fashion sales, a real estate agent, a hairstylist apprentice – and I’ve launched a number of businesses too: a digital marketing agency, a barber shop, a development company, a metal shop, my blog (!)…
I currently work as a Construction Project Manager & Coordinator for our group of companies.
do you microblade your eyebrows?
I have always done my own eyebrows and I swear by Tweezerman Tweezers. Filling my eyebrows in are part of my daily routine because they are fairly light. Right now there are two products that I use to do my eyebrows: Smashbox Brow Tech Matte Pencil in Brunette and Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Medium Brown.
