Writer Wednesday - Vanessa from Vanessa's Runway

Vanessa is a late twenty-something from Orange County who enjoys all the good things in life: family, friends, laughter, great food, live music, traveling, fashion and beauty. Her blog, Vanessa's Runway,  is a creative outlet where she shares fashion finds for less, great local hot spots to try, favorite recipes, beauty products to try and some fun DIY projects to spruce up your home. Vanessa's goal is to empower woman of all shapes and shades to feel confident, glamorous and to be themselves.

Who are you? I'm Vanessa - A mover, shaker, advertising professional and lifestyle blogger from Orange County. I love to dance, cook, read a good book and drink a strong margarita.

Where can you be found online? Do you have a blog or other online receptacle for your work? If so, how would you describe it to a stranger you've just met while on vacation? I have a lifestyle blog "Vanessa's Runway" - My blog is my creative outlet where I share simple recipes, local city spotlights, fashion, beauty and DIY projects. I can also be found on Instagram and Twitter.

What inspired you to start writing/blogging? When did it happen? I started blogging in 2009 over at blogspot when I graduated college and used it as a creative outlet. I stopped blogging because I got too busy with work, but knew I always wanted to come back to blogging and did so last year. Time away from blogging gave me a chance to have a much clearer vision and voice for my blog.

Why do you write? I write for self-expression and to share tips that I love and that can be helpful for others. It's a great way to create a supportive community and meet new people.

Your writing inspires me. Who inspires you? So many writers/bloggers, they're so creative, witty, knowledgeable and strong. They inspire me to be myself and share my voice.

In keeping with the admittedly loose travel theme of Not Intent On Arriving, if you could have an all-expenses paid trip anywhere in the world, where would you go? I've always wanted to visit Europe. It's on my bucket list and I'm hoping to make it happen soon (cross your fingers for me!). I'd love to do a European trip and visit England, Amsterdam, Paris, Italy and Spain!

What is your favorite place on earth? Corona del Mar beach in Orange County. It's a smaller beach and so gorgeous. It's the beach I went to as a child, where I got married and where I plan to take my babies when I have them :)

Anything else you'd like us to know? I love a good laugh and connecting and meeting new bloggers. Please visit my blog or social media accounts and leave me a line, I'd love to connect!
