TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF + YOUR BLOG!
I’m a just a quirky girl who tries to be normal (ha) with a passion for life! My husband and I have three adopted toddlers that are such an incredible blessing to the both of us!
Hello Lidy is really about finding ways to create a unique and one-of-a-kind look for your home, but that’s still attainable and livable. So we create affordable alternatives to those expensive pieces we all wish we could have for our home, but also pieces we design ourselves to suit our style as well. You can be sure to find some very basic DIYs too. Our style is very Scandinavian-inspired with both modern and vintage touches along the way!
WHAT DO YOU DO OUTSIDE OF THE BLOG?
I really only have time for my beautiful babies! We love to go for walks when the weather is nice, the zoo, go for ice cream and just eat in general. Our lives are really basic and ordinary, but I love it! We are big on adventures and investing time with family and close friends.
WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START BLOGGING?
I’ve always been creative since I was young and had a wild imagination. I wanted to be an interior designer early on in life, but had no idea if I would ever be able to do it. I started my blog as a spring board to dip my toes in exploring DIYs, crafting, styling, etc. And it evolved into what it is today – little by little over the last 5 years.
WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE A BLOGZILLA STUDIO THEME?
I loved the simple, clean and modern look. It felt it fit my personal style and aesthetic to a tee!
WHAT DO YOU LIKE BEST ABOUT THE LOOK OF YOUR BLOG NOW?
How straight forward and clean it is! No extra work is needed to navigate around the blog! I’m also a very visual person, so I try to make my pictures stand out as soon as you visit the site – the theme is great for helping with that!
ANY ADVICE FOR PEOPLE STARTING UP BLOGS OF THEIR OWN?
It takes time and patience to get the ball rolling, so don’t feel defeated if your original goals seem to be going unmet. It can take years to finally start seeing your hard work pay off. Most of all, do it because you love it and because you are passionate about what you do!
IF YOU COULD HAVE DINNER WITH ANY GUESTS OF YOUR CHOICE, WHO WOULD THEY BE + WHAT WOULD YOU EAT?
It’s weird, of all the intriguing people that have lived, I would just love to sit with both my Oma’s (dutch for Grandmas). Now that they are getting older and we all have less time to see each other, you realize just how important they are to you. We would most likely sip tea, eat some toast with jam and dutch cheese. And probably some sort of sweet treat!
WOULD YOU RECOMMEND BLOGZILLA STUDIO? IF SO, WHY?
Yes! If you are wanting a beautiful and sleek look for your blog that’s not super expensive, then Blogzilla’s got your back!
