Fire


Once upon a time, I wanted to start a Blog. A place where I could log my experiences, and create some kind of scrapbook to look back on my life, whilst hoping at least one poor sod would read it (that person being me).
With a full time job, finding the time to Blog was a juggling act. I can announce that I don't have that problem anymore. I quit my job to travel. They say follow your dreams. I'll let you know if it was the right decision.

Today I relaunch this Blog, with an editorial called Fire, shot by super talented photographer Ella H and wonderful Make Up Artist Rachel at the Tate in London. A wonderful way to say goodbye to my beautiful city where I have lived for 5 years, to travel the world. 


ProjectM is a Style, Beauty and Lifestyle Blog. I will be launching my travel and foodie posts early 2015.
 
You're welcome to join me in my adventure.

About





About: 
Hi, I’m Monica Wong, the wanderluster and dreamer over style, food and travel. I was a Commerical Model, now Blogger. I work in Marketing. I fill these pages with my life & adventures. 

What's your personality like?:
I'm weird. The sort of girl who you will find lost, walks into a door, likes to nap, with her shirt back to front. I'm that girl. 

What's your Blog about?: 
It's very much a lifestyle, travel, beauty, food and fashion Blog, all of my favourite things into one.

Fashion: 
As a young professional (ish),  I think my style very much suits my age, I'm definitely a high street girl, I shop at the popular Topshop, ASOS, Zara, H+M, Warehouse, and Reiss. I also love (and wear) carefully selected handmade pieces from Korea, I stock my favourites at ProjectM. Of course, I do love the occasional designer piece, my picks of lust are Mulberry bags, Erdem dresses or blouses, Alice by Temperley dresses or Jimmy Choo shoes. My goal is to create a realm of colour and striking fashion in my images.

Foodie and some form of fitness:
I. Love. Food. I can fully admit, I am a foodie. I'm that lame instagrammer' who takes pictures of food and adds it to my food porn collection. I'm a fan of flavour, spice, and I have a sweet tooth. Ah, I love cheese, and cheesecake. I do get asked, 'how do you stay so slim'? Luckily I have that magical fast metabolism gene. I am a fan of fitness (ish), I love yoga and I go to the gym, well, sometimes. I also used to be a cheerleader so I can bend my legs in weird places. I do drink a lot of green tea, I'm not sure if that contributes to my fast metabolism. 

Travel:
I love the word wanderlust', that's what I feel when I travel. I've always been a curious cat, as a kid I was taken everywhere. I just love exploring and I thrive in adventure. As cheesey as this sounds, there's a world out there, why not go see it? I think it's important to see real poverty and learn about other cultures. I have a travel list and a list of things I would like to do and see. 

My Story: 
As I work full time, my Blog can only be as good as I have time to write it, I would absolutely love to put so much time into it as I am constantly thinking about news ideas and concepts, but in the real world, I, like most people, work full time for a career. I used to be a Commercial Model, you can see an interview about it here

What camera do you use?
I use the Panasonic Lumix Compact System camera, it's compact so I can lob it around with me. It's a really good quality camera. 

Whats the difference between a Commercial Model and Model?: 
A Commercial Model has a distinct look and is booked to promote, display, or advertise commercial products for specific campaigns in advertising on TV, Photo shoots and Film. A Model is booked to promote, display, or advertise commercial products on Catwalks and Photo shoots. I'm a Commercial Model.

Can I contact you?:
Yes of course! If you need to tell me something, or have a burning question please get in touch via Twitter or Facebook.
