Why did you start Over My Styled Body?
Fashion has always played a big role in my life and my family will be the first to tell you that I was always doing something that involved clothes and creativity. I was playing dress up ever since I was a little girl and it looks like not a lot has changed!
So naturally when Instagram stepped onto the scene I started sharing my OOTD’s not only with my friends and family but with all of you! It was from all your positive feedback and following other blogs that I thought “hey, I’d love to do that!” and that’s when Over My Styled Body was born.
Where did the name Over My Styled Body come from?
I love a good play on words so when Josh and I were brainstorming blog names he suggested Over My Styled Body. No matter what other names we came up with we kept on going back to it and it just stuck!
Where do you call home?
It’s crazy how often I get asked this question and how shocked people are when they hear the answer. I’m a born and raised proud Canadian girl living in the wild wild west AKA Alberta! But for some reason everyone thinks I live somewhere in the States?? Still trying to figure that one out.
What type of camera do you use to shoot your photos?
When I started the blog I knew nothing about photography. So after taking a beginners camera course I decided to invest in a DSLR and dive right in.
I now shoot with a Canon T3i and for most of my portrait and outfit shots we shoot with a 50mm f/1.8 lens. We recently purchased a Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 lens to shoot indoors for home and lifestyle photos.
You keep saying “we”, who are you referring to?
My fiancé! It’s still weird saying that as Josh has been my boyfriend for the past 9 years but we recently just got engaged. We’re high school sweethearts and I’m proud to say he’s my best friend who helps me out A TON with Over My Styled Body. Thanks babe!
Whats your fitness routine?
To be honest I don’t really have a routine. I grew up playing a ton of sports so fitness was just a part of my every day life. Now that I’ve moved on from competing I try and go to the gym 3-4 times a week or workout when I can. I love spin class and cardio…but not as much as I love my snacks! #thestruggleisreal
What are your favourite beauty products?
By no means am I a beauty guru but I definitely have some go to holy grail products that I am obsessed with these days. Anastasia brow powder duo and brow wiz, MAKE UP FOR EVER Ultra HD foundation, MAC lipstick in Diva, and my trusty beauty blender just to name a few.
I have also heard amazing things about Charlotte Tilbury so I have a feeling i’ll be falling in love with her products in the near future!
What is your skincare routine?
My skincare routine changes with the seasons so I find I’m always trying out new products.But lately I have been obsessed with Murad, especially their Invisiblur Perfecting Shield. It’s a sunscreen and pore perfecter in one, genius!
