Every Monday, Bloggerbabes.com will be presenting a Blogger Babe Of The Week, a featured blogger that we will interview to get to know what motivates her to blog.
Our featured Blogger of the Week is Larissa May from LIVINLIKELARZ.
Blogger Babes: How did you get the idea for your site?
Larissa: I have always been one to incorporate my passions into my innovation, and to do what I love. I have a passion for life, love, and philanthropy. When I was in fifth grade, I worked with my friend Clare , our business was called “ClARISSA” designs. We hand-sewed headbands and sold them, when I hosted a Valentines Day Party. I gave a percentage of a proceeds to Children’s Memorial Hospital to support children who were suffering. Ironically, life comes full circle- I present to you my collection “Flowers Never Die.”
Why do you send flowers?- for health, prosperity, hopefulness, joy, love, laughter, life , … and the list goes on. The Problem: Flowers Die We send flowers to bring about positive energy and mentalities. Once these flowers die, the positive mentalities may diminish. My goal is to bring life long positive energy. The Collection: Each piece in the collection is named after an inspirational word . This way, my flowers never die, and neither does the positive mentality.
I not only wanted to inspire others through my fashion, but through my love. This lead me to launch my shop & blog . I wouldn’t say I am a fashion blogger. I wouldn’t say I’m a lifestyle blogger. I wouldn’t say I’m anything but me. I simply- livlikelarz.
Blogger Babes: How did you discover blogging?
Larissa: My blogs began as a
secret. A way to develop my private thoughts, photos, and philosophy. Throughout my life journey, and the farther I traveled from home, I have begun to realize that I have a different vision…. I see a different light… A different meaning to life… Soon, I was exposed to a reoccurring question….How do you live like LARZ? When I began getting messages from individuals from all demographics , telling them about how I inspired them, I knew i had to step up my game, and I transitioned from my tumblrs to LIVINLIKELARZ.
Blogger Babes: Who/ what inspires you?
Larissa: I am inspired by inspiring people. Those who you inspire, will inspire you.
Blogger Babes: What do you hope readers will take away from your site?
Larissa: I hope that all individuals can find meaning and purpose in their lives. Find a passion and run with it with flying colors. LIfe is too short to worry about what others think of you , or to spend any days wishing you were doing something else. Always find your passion. You never have to grow up- I still collect barbies- believe me.
Blogger Babes: What is the best advice you would give to someone starting a blog?
Larissa: Do you. What makes you original is what brings attraction. Don’t overthink anything because what will make you unique is your ability to express yourself, your vulnerabilities, and creativity relentlessly.
Blogger Babes: What brings you the most satisfaction about doing what you do?
Larissa: Seeing how I can empower others , who are most different than me is amazing. I love spending time and inspiring people, who never thought they could relate to me. By connecting with others, I can allow them to see the world through a different lens. Every text or call saying- How do you live like larz? or Help? Is the most amazing feeling. I’m down to meet anyone and expose them to a new experience.
Blogger Babes: And your motto in life?
Larissa: I want to do two things in my life: Be Inspired by Inspiring people. Inspire People to be inspired.
