Tell me about yourself.

This is the toughest question to answer but at the same time, I have so much to tell. To star off, my name is Chanel, and yes, it is my legal name, and I am happily married to my best friend with our little furbaby, Tori. I have lived in five different countries, studying, living, and working abroad since college. When my husband (boyfriend back then) proposed, we decided to move back to the states, where I grew up! My husband and I have been traveling since we started dating and he’s the best traveling buddy!

What's your favorite country you've visited?

It’s really hard to pick, but if I have to choose ONE, I would say Singapore! Singapore is where my husband is from and it was also the first country I got to visit in Southeast Asia. I just love everything about that country- it’s the cleanest, safest, and most beautiful country I’ve ever visited. It’s where my husband and I got engaged and the country we decided to retire in! I miss my family and friends back in Singapore.

What inspired you to become an influencer?

I honestly don’t know how it happened. When I started working abroad in Asia after graduating from college, I started sharing places I’ve been to, such as pretty cafes, instagrammable places, and more. After a year or so, I realized I gained so many followers from the experiences I was happy to share with!

Who takes pictures for you?

99% of the pictures on my instagram are taken by my husband or me! My instagram husband is well trained since we started dating and he’s such a pro now! I am so lucky to be married to my best friend who is willing to take pictures for me without any complaints.

Describe your personal style.

I would say simple and comfortable. Of course, I do have fancy, dressy clothes, too, but they will not be my go-to outfits. I love comfortable Rag and Bone jeans and Lululemon leggings with a simple white t-shirt . I used to love wearing heels, but now I am all about everything comfortable.

What's your favorite season?

I love fall. Fall is my favorite season–you get to finally wear sweaters, hoodies, cardigans, and more. Summer is nice, too, but I feel like you could style yourself more in Fall. I just love the hoodie weather!
