I met Solmaz on several occasions and we instantly clicked. Her lifestyle blog, The Curious Creature is one that I can spend hours reading. It's loaded with beautiful photos and is witty, smart and all around lovely... just like her. Say hello to our Hip + Urban Girl Of The Month, Solmaz!
1) What is a typical day in the life of Solmaz?
I start my day off with a healthy, nutritious breakfast (Nutella and a boatload of carbs), read a few newspapers (I’m old-school like that) and then move on to my treasure chest (aka inbox) which is usually filled with press releases, media invites and other work-related emails. Then I spend some time on social media; this usually takes up way more time than anticipated because I’m curious and incredibly chatty. With the exception of my morning routine, every day is different (which is why I love what I do). I’m either freelancing at special events around town, writing, giving PR advice to a client, blogging about a product or experience, attending media events or hopping around the globe embracing new adventures (I’m an avid traveller). I also spend a lot of time on the phone or on coffee dates with other freelancers, bloggers and entrepreneurs. We bounce ideas off each other, share tips and give each other advice; I guess it’s kind of like a virtual office! My evenings are usually spent frolicking around town devouring everything in sight, attending media events or hanging out with friends and fam.
2) Tell us about The Curious Creature!
The Curious Creature is a lifestyle blog where I share posts about everything that excites me – from food and travel to art and interesting experiences or products. I treat my blog like a personal journal and am grateful that my stories resonate with so many people around the world. There’s truly nothing more gratifying than inspiring others to get out there, try new things and live life to its fullest!
