When and Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging by accident back in 2004. I was sponsored by Vans for surfing and they would take us on these amazing surf trips all over the world. I would keep a journal for each trip and fill it with stories , polaroids , ticket stubs and doodles. When I got back to California I’d hand over my journal to their art department and they’d scan it and use it for the website , ads , and other fun things. I don’t think Blogger or WordPress were as popular back then – so it was our own way of blogging.
I started modern-day blogging in 2008 as a way to keep in touch with my family and friends while I was living in Germany. While abroad I was able to do some freelance blogging– which is how èvoluer came to be. Initially my focus was on street style and European lifestyle. However, I found myself falling head over heels with the bicycle culture. It was so chic, so effortless, and best of all accessible. I quickly shifted gears and began blogging about the two things I knew best – fashion and bicycles!
What is most inspirational for you when blogging?
The thing I love most about blogging is that it gives me the opportunity to be as creative as I want. I love putting my graphic design & photography skills to use in a low-pressure setting. It’s also been a lot of fun learning CSS and customizing my blog layout. I am inspired by typography , funky houses with wood floors and lots of windows , industrial design , old print ads and letterpress , fashion mags, and of course the beautiful bicycle.
Describe the type of man or woman who would love eva.lu …
I feel like eva.lu offers something unique and different from other fashion blogs. Although my process might start the same way [pick out cute outfit, find the right shoes & swipe on some mascara and snap a few pictures] it end’s with a bike ride to a café , work , or to meet up with my other chic cycling friends!
I think that my reader would be someone who enjoys a stylish yet active lifestyle. I don’t think it matters if my readers ride bikes or not. I think they would enjoy my fun n funky outfits, silly stories , nice photography & all the pretty bicycles I have.
