5 minutes with chemist-turned-fashion blogger Alyssa Lau

We Love

There’s nothing ordinary about style blogger Alyssa Lau. When she’s not posting amazing outfits and photos to her addictive fashion blog Ordinary People, she works at a Biochemistry lab in her hometown of Edmonton. We can only imagine what she could do with a lab coat. We love everything about the way she puts clothes together, so obviously we had to feature her for We Love. Because we really do.


 

WE WANNA KNOW ABOUT YOU. DO TELL.

I’m a 22-year old Chinese-Canadian style blogger from Edmonton, Alberta, who, originally with my cousin, discovered the infinite vastness of the blogging world three years ago. When I’m not blogging, I’m either: a) working in a Biochemistry lab as a research assistant, b) playing video games, c) snuggling with my pup, or d) working as a sales associate at Coup Boutique (phew!).

WE LOVE YOUR STYLE. DO YOU FEEL LIKE IT’S ALWAYS CHANGING?

My style has always been dynamic in that it constantly changes according to what inspires me.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE COLOUR?

Baby blue

FAVOURITE GIRLS CHARACTER?

I feel kind of ashamed to say this, but I’ve never watched GIRLS!

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE PIZZA TOPPINGS?

I’m not picky, but as long as a pizza has mushrooms, I’m a happy camper.

WHICH SEASON DO YOU LOVE DRESSING FOR THE MOST?

Spring and summer, since we get too much of winter over here in Edmonton.

NAME A SONG YOU CURRENTLY HAVE ON REPEAT IN YOUR HEAD

RAC – Cheap Sunglasses (Ft. Matthew Koma)

WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH 1 MILLION DOLLARS?

This is probably one of the most boring answers, but I’d probably invest 95% of it and spend the remaining 5% on whatever my heart desires.

TELL US WHICH FASHION BLOGGERS YOU LIKE TO FOLLOW

Always a fan of:
Dani and Bianca of Kastor and Pollux,
India of India Rose,
Vanessa Hong of The Haute Pursuit,
Margaret Zhang of Shine By Three.

They all have such different styles but they keep on inspiring me with every post.

ANY ADVICE FOR ASPIRING FASHION BLOGGERS?

Do it because you love it and not because you want followers. Also, as if I couldn’t get any more cliché, the most important thing is to stay true to your self. Because if there’s one reason why people are going to read your blog, it’s because you are you, and not pretending to be someone else.
