Hi there! My name is Maria and I am a 24 year old Londoner. You may have stumbled upon my blog through my Instagram where I have become quite active over the past year. I created this blog as I wanted to elaborate on some topics I cover on my Insta, such as travel. I also wanted to make all my looks shoppable for those of you who are interested – everything I wear is rather affordable as I shop mostly from H&M, Forever21 and Missguided, H&M being 80% of my wardrobe….

If I had to describe my style, I would say that I love the feminine and chic look – on most days you would catch me in a dress and heeled boots. This is also where the name of the blog “The Chic Pursuit” comes from. For me, the best compliment is to be called elegant or classy, thus, “the pursuit of elegance”, or “the chic pursuit” seemed fitting.

Other than blogging and ‘gramming, I am currently pursuing a Master’s degree in chemistry at King’s College London, and working in stem cell research in a hospital. My degree choice stems from my passion for the beauty and (organic) cosmetics industry, which I hope to pursue further after I graduate.

Posts will be going up every Monday, I hope you enjoy! ♥
