About Me

I started Loulou's Views in 2007 (yes, back in the original blogging days before Instagram!) so friends and family could keep up with the day-to-day happenings of my life as a mom. I've always loved writing and sharing my views on everything from parenting to beauty and travel, so blogging was a natural fit for me. 

My lifestyle blog is for people who share my love of travel, beauty, shopping, and style. I'm a product junkie and a shopaholic and I truly love spreading the word about brands, companies, and hotels I love. I hope you know you'll always get the real deal with me--I am super passionate and enthusiastic about the things I post about, here and on my Instagram page. 

A little bit about me: I graduated from Carleton University with a degree in Communications and received my Broadcast Journalism degree from Loyalist College. I spent several years working in television and radio, completed an internship at CBS TV in Washington, D.C. and Entertainment Tonight in Hollywood, California, and have been working as a Communications and Marketing Advisor for the federal government for many years. 

My biggest accomplishment is being a mom to my two boys, who are 16 and 13 years old.

Greek Flavour

I have many amazing memories of spending summers in Greece when I was a child. Of course, one of the best things about vacationing in Greece—besides spending time with family and friends, swimming in the sea, and just having the best time ever—was the food! Greek food is my favourite, but to experience it in Greece is even better. Every breakfast was nothing more than fresh Greek yogurt with a touch of honey, which I enjoyed on my grandparent's balcony. It was perfection. I'm so glad to see that the Greek yogurt craze has hit close to home, because I love that everyone can get a taste of how good Greek yogurt is without having to fly eight hours to try it! The newest Greek yogurt I love is YOPA because it tastes as good as the yogurt I used to enjoy on my summer vacations in Greece, and there are a variety of delicious flavours One of the best things about being Greek is how we include food in all of festivities. We have tons of OPA! moments to celebrate, from birthday
