Allow me to formally introduce myself. My name is Loraul and I am the creator of Suitcases and Stiletto Heels. I am a Canadian and local Vancouverite with a great passion for dance, anything vintage and of course, travel! So far, I have traveled to over 10 countries (hey, it’s a start). But I have crossed a lot of experiences off my bucket list. Please read below while I go into further detail about Moi.
I originally went to school and studied Travel and Tourism Business Management at Canadian Tourism College and since graduating, I currently work full time for a Humanitarian Travel Agency based out of The Netherlands and with offices around the world! It has certainly broadened my spectrum of where people are going in this great big world and how everyone travels differently.
Did you know that I am also a very passionate dancer? Currently when I am not working 2 jobs, I am strutting my stuff with the seriously fierce, sassy and fabulous ladies of the Army of Sass; a Nuvo-Burlesque and Urban Heels training intensive. About 2 years ago I found myself in serious need of a confidence boost so I joined a gym, got a personal trainer and started weight lifting and wow – big difference both physically and mentally. But I was not exercising my creative side as much as I did when I was a teenager. So I bit the bullet, joined the Army of Sass with a good friend and the rest is history. Who doesn’t want to put on some red lipstick, fishnet stockings and a pair of stilettos on a Saturday morning and dance with your best friends? For all of my ladies out there seeking a good-vibes outlet, this is your answer!
I am grateful for all of the “leap of faiths” I have taken in the last few years. It’s why I’m sitting here attempting to throw together my first blog post. Currently, I have no idea what I am doing but I have a copy of “Blogging for Dummies” next to me with a highlighter all ready to go.
I hope to inspire other dreamers like myself to always embrace what you are most passionate about and live like to the absolute fullest!
