Just over 4 years ago I started my first fashion blog (anyone remember Chronicles of a Fashionista?). Unfortunately as my life at film school got busier and more time consuming I wasn’t able to keep up with both and I had to make the difficult decision to stop blogging and focus on acting & film entirely. Although the length of its existence was short & sweet I loved every moment of having a blog and have missed it dearly ever since. Since completing film school I’ve been throwing around the idea of opening a new blog… but with my life in Edmonton and time-consuming full time job, it just didn’t make sense.
Then I moved to Toronto. There is something so inspiring about this city that pushes you to be the best you can be. I feel like I am completely surrounded by people making their dreams come true. People working in the arts, constantly pushing themselves creatively, and excelling in their respective fields. Be it film, fashion, music, or any other creative industry. It motivates you to be the best you can be and to push yourself creatively. Toronto is a city of constant go-go-go and you truly have to be on top of your game at all times which is as refreshing as it is challenging. It’s the kind of city that makes you restless if you aren’t working on a project at all times, which is one of the main reasons I pushed myself to get a blog going again.
With my recent move to Toronto, a more open schedule, and a sole focus on creativity (bye bye stability!) I couldn’t think of a better time to start blogging again. With that being said, rather than developing a fashion blog alone like Chronicles of a Fashionista, I wanted to develop a blog/site that would combine fashion with my acting & film career so that the two would go hand in hand rather than being two separate entities in my life. I thought if I could develop something that combined the two, they could each in turn help to elevate the other. I wanted my blog to be a place people could come to learn about me as an actress, fashion addict, foodie, beauty junkie & world traveler. KirstenWendlandt.com is a place where people can come to explore all aspects of who I am. My work, life & style.
