Turning my Passion into my Job with LG gram

Updated: Nov 17


This blog post is written in partnership with LG Canada. I'm so grateful that I get to share some very exciting news with you!


A lot can happen in a year and a half. And the past 18 months have really changed a lot of our lives.


Many of you may know, I used to be a flight attendant. It was a dream job but it didn't allow for me to flex my creative muscles, so I created my Instagram account in the late months of 2017 to document my home decorating journey.


Slowly, I began to build my platform and started a blog in 2019. I would fly Tuesday to Friday and come home and work on my content from Saturday to Monday. It was a hobby and side hustle that turned into my passion, and finding ways to be most productive, within the limited time I had, was key to my success.


When I lost my job in March of 2020, content creation became my main source of income.


I still can't believe that I was able to turn my passion into a viable means to support my family. It has truly been a blessing.


I actually have very exciting news that I've been dying to share with you. My airline called me back to work this July. But during these past 18 months I realized that my blog could be my full-time job, thanks to YOU. I weighed the pros and cons and have come to the conclusion that this is what I want to do. I can't believe this is official and it's really happening. It's so exciting!


Every day is different and dynamic! I usually wake up around 7:30 AM and start my day by opening up my LG gram laptop to check my email. The gram is perfect for me because one charge lasts all day. I like to address all the urgent emails first and save the ones that need a bit finer tuning for later in the day, when I'm a bit more awake haha!


Then I spend part of my morning planning ahead for my content in the next few weeks. I like to have a list of tasks to complete each day to stay organized. And to stay inspired and motivated, I actually like to move around quite a bit when I do desk work. I find that I concentrate the best when I sit at a coffee shop. The LG gram is the lightest laptop on the market and only weighs 2.2 lbs. This is perfect for me because I lug around a ton of floor, tile and counter samples with me everywhere I go. With the gram laptop being ultra-lightweight and ultra-portable, it doesn't hinder me from bringing additional tools that I need for my job.



I bring my laptop with me everywhere because you never know when inspiration will strike, plus I have a lot of deadlines. I love that I don't have to bring my laptop cable with me because the battery life can last up to an impressive 25.5 hours! I don't have to limit myself when I go out and I love that I don't have to worry about finding a spot to charge my laptop in the middle of the day!


A bulk of my day is spent shooting and filming content but I've also been visiting the new house a lot lately. It's been incredible to be able to focus on designing our new home but there is a lot of meetings involved. I find myself travelling up to the house 2-3 times a week to meet with our contractors and to finalize design choices. (That's why I bring so many things with me, my laptop, tripod, paint chips, and recently, my kitchen hardware!)



I love that I can take my work with me and work remotely from anywhere. I truly love my job and I wake up every day excited to get to work. I still can't believe that I get this second chance to have a dream job that I love so much!


I am so grateful that I get to do this with you. And thanks to LG Canada for partnering with me to share this announcement with you all! I can't wait to share more inspiring and fun content with you! This would not have been possible without YOU. So THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart.


And thank you for reading.


Love,

W
