Sandy started Chic Stylings blog initially as a hobby and creative outlet for her to share her passion for life and style.
“As much as style can be about what you wear on the outside, it really starts with who you are on the inside. Be the strongest and most authentic version of yourself and you will look as beautiful as you feel.”
Her blog quickly blossomed into a rewarding and inspiring world of influence and connection for her – and a secondary career! She’s now 23 years into her first career within the Oil and Gas industry specializing in Finance and Accounting.
While juggling her double career, she also grew her family. A wife and mom of two, Sandy was born, raised, married and educated in Calgary. As her children grew older, Sandy developed a real enthusiasm for not only sharing content through her blog, but also discovered the importance of connecting with people and building new relationships. From parenting, leading her team in the corporate world, to partnering with brands and businesses, blogging and creating content is all about sharing inspiration from her interactions and experiences with passionate people.
With a heavy work load and busy lifestyle, Sandy reminds herself that time is valuable and the importance of time management by working on projects that speak to her most and prioritizing her family, friends, and travel. She also believes in spending every minute of her time in kindness.
“Kindness should be effortless, genuine and come without any strings attached or expectations in return – much like sprinkling confetti. Imagine how different the world would be if we all spread kindness this way.”
She plans to continue blogging and sharing her life experiences, while continuing to connect with communities of co-workers, fans, creators, businesses and brands who all love working together to support one another towards success – this to her is the most rewarding part of what she gets to do each day.
