Hey guys! My name is Candi and I’m SO EXCITED to start this new chapter of my life with you! I’ve always toyed around with the idea of a blog, and now I’ve taken the next big step, it’s same parts terrifying and exhilarating, kinda like a roller coaster ride 🙂
I’m a wannabe wanderluster, jewelry designer and style influencer, and if you’re interested in travel, you’ve come to the right place! This is a travel blog first and foremost, and is dedicated to all things travel!
How did this become my life?
I worked as an events planner previously for two years before I decided to leave and take a giant leap of faith in myself. Believe me, it was not an easy choice. I loved working in events, had great colleagues and met some great people in the industry, but event work usually meant periods of intensity followed by empty lulls in between events.
The first thing I did when I left, I travelled, solo. It’s hard finding friends who can travel with you when everyone’s trying to keep a full-time job, so I just had to do it myself, and honestly, I’m so glad I did that. I’ve always been a sheltered city girl. I’d missed quite a few opportunities to travel (like in uni days) and I’d somehow regretted it. This time around, I had no excuses.
I travelled solo for a year, and enrolled in fashion design part-time at a local crafts school. Now here I am, starting this website and putting it out all out there right now. Currently, I’m looking to launch my online business, which I’ll talk about more as life progresses.
You and me may be worlds apart, but the internet is a pretty wonderful invention, and it’s brought us all together, and this is also where I humbly come in.
If you need some advice planning for an upcoming trip (I’ve been to Europe, USA, South Africa, Japan, most of South East Asia) or simply want to write to me for whatever reasons(love? career? anything!), you’ve come to the right place, and I’m right here to help. So send me your feedback or really, anything you’d like! I’ll be peppering this website with my travel posts. You may reach out directly to me at candi [at] thelollychase.com.
I’ll be constantly updating my Instagram as well, for those of you keen in fashion and travel, so be sure to follow me here on IG!
