Hi there! My name is Maria and I am a 25 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 and to learn about SEO and websites in general.
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, Missguided and similar places.
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’m a recent chemistry post graduate from King’s College London and I spent my Master’s degree mainly in labs working on stem cell research. My degree choice originates from my passion for the beauty and cosmetics industry: Essentially I wanted to create make-up for a living and find the “cure” for ageing.
However, after discovering the disappointing salaries that chemistry graduates were faced with, I decided to start blogging full-time and luckily it has all worked out well for me.
Anyhow, welcome to the blog, I hope you enjoy! ♥
