Loree Bloom, we adore her Instagram feed. Every now and again you come across an Instagram feed that makes you go "WOW, how beautiful is that!" You quickly click through to the account so you can see more, and before you know it, you're completely immersed, lost track of time, and have been scrolling through, liking and commenting on images for ages! Sound familiar? We did that with the Instagram feed of beauty blogger Loree Bloom.
Interview With Loi, Loree Bloom
That's how we first discovered Loi of Loree Bloom. After frequently visiting her feed, some may say stalking; we knew we had to reach out to her. With her love of all things beauty and her gorgeous photography and styling, we were eager to see if she'd like to collaborate. Several emails later, and a meeting over coffee and a macaroon, we are very excited about Loi sharing Botani with her followers.
Tell Us About You
So, I get called Loree a lot, which is amusing, but my name is Loi. I grew up in the inner suburbs of Melbourne, and I'm a true Melbourne girl at heart. I love everything that Melbourne has to offer, the food, the arts, the culture, the people and especially the coffee.
What Inspired You To Start Blogging?
My passion came from my urge to be creative. I've always loved makeup and photography and wanted to find a way to incorporate the two. I started out taking photos on Instagram and quickly realised that I needed a forum where I could share my experience with my audience, and that's when I created my blog.
Describe Your Style
We adore your photography and beautiful styling. Oh, thank you! I would describe my style as minimalistic x girly. I find inspiration from everywhere and everyone that I meet. Being a blogger, I have the opportunity to meet so many like-minded people and that continually inspires me.
Your Five Favourite Things Right Now
- Paris, I am forever in love with this city.
- Dead Man Espresso, the best coffee place in Melbourne.
- The TV show Friends, I'd prefer to watch re-runs.
- Flowers, I adore how beautiful they are and how they can instantly brighten up my day.
- Japanese Food, I can't get enough of it.
Favourite Botani Product
Olive Skin Serum is my absolute favourite. It's very gentle on my skin and has helped me look radiant and alive. What more could a girl ask?
Favourite Activity In Melbourne
I love to wander the streets of Melbourne, and people watch, as you get to see the diversity that our city has, it's such a beautiful thing.
Photostyling Tips For Instagram
My biggest tip for anyone that wants beautiful photos is to always shoot in natural light and take as many pictures as you can from different angles. Sometimes it'll take 20 shots, to get that one perfect shot.
Favourite Skincare Ingredient
At the moment, I would have to say Olive Squalene, as all the fantastic Botani products that I love contains this.
What Else Is Important To Your Skincare Routine
I always try to drink at least 2L of water a day; I think this is the essential part of having beautiful skin.
What Are Your Self-Love Practices
Going for a walk, with my headphones on and blocking out the world.
