Self Love Sunday Q&A: Erica Stolman of Blog-Doo
Welcome back to another Self Love Sunday Q&A friends! This is going to be a two parter because both of these women need their own Sunday to shine! I’m so excited to introduce you to the amazing women behind my website: Lauryn Evarts-Bosstick and Erica Stolman.
These two blogger babes helped take the website you’re on right now from a dream of mine to a legit REALITY! It was a lot of hard work for all of us, I’m talking pinterest boards, lots of late night edits and so many decisions. I mean, real talk they sent me THREE amazing concepts and it literally took me a month to decide which one I wanted to move forward with. Today I have Erica Stolman in all her Self Love glory sharing all the details behind what self love means to her.
ERICA STOLMAN of FASHIONLUSH and BLOG-DOO
Q: Introduce yourself… don’t get all shy on us either!
A: OH HEYYY GUYS. How much do we all LOVE PAUL? What a freaking gem of a human!!! I am Erica, the blogger behind Fashionlush & co-owner of the blog design company, blog-doo. I have been blogging for 10 (!!!) years & love every aspect of this crazy industry. I live in San Diego with my boyfriend & two adorable dogs, bagels are my favorite food of all time, I code websites, & my favorite thing about blogging is all of the wonderful people I have been able to connect with all over the world.
Q: Three things you cannot live without
A: my soda stream, my cbd facial oil, & bagels obviously.
Q: Outside of being an official blogger babe, what makes you tick?
A: Everything I have thought of so far has been blogging related haha! I really do LOVE what I do, but outside of work my passions include my dogs, my family, SPARKCYCLE (yassss), & honestly- I strive everyday to just be a good person to others. I don’t know if that’s a passion, but it seriously is something that is so important to me & it’s how I keep the positive energy flowing.
Q: Define Self Love and what it means to you
A: KNOWING WHEN IT’S TIME TO TAKE A BREAK! I am not the best at realizing when I need to stop, breathe, & just relax. Relaxing is actually very difficult for me… but just allowing myself to step away & take time for myself (whether it be reading a book or getting a facial) is my definition of self love & it’s crucial to my sanity! I need to do it more, but I am a work in progress.
Q: Favorite Quote of the moment?
A: my forever favorite quote is the one in my instagram bio, “My Money’s Riding on the Dark Horse”. It’s a lyrics from a song I don’t know by Velena MacKay & I found it while googling “dark horse” (a nickname someone once gave me). The quote really resonates me as I am an introvert in an industry full of extroverts… but don’t underestimate me 😉
