While completing a History of Art Specialist at University of Toronto, I began WithLoveGabrielle.com also known as WLG. What started as passion project in second year university has now evolved into a rewarding business. On June 12 of 2008, I wrote my first post on Chanel while “studying” for a Medieval Art exam and that is where the name was coined. A homage to Chanel’s first name, Gabrielle Bonheur “Coco” Chanel, whose aesthetic and spirit has always inspired me.
My love for the visual extended beyond academics and into musings of everyday life. Capturing moments that inspired, experiences that taught, outfits that brought confidence and adventures that made memories.
In my early 20’s it was the journey of navigating through an appearance focused culture while gaining a sense of oneself. In my mid 20’s the focus shifted towards personal challenges and life-changes. - Having just turned 30, WLG has evolved into a platform that focuses on personal growth, both as a woman and a leader.

I co-founded a Social Media Agency, TryMus Group, in 2016 with the lessons learned from WLG shifting the focus to women in business. (incorporate that into after 30 part)
What started as a story of a girl in search of the fabulous in everyday life, has now evolved into a journey of a woman where fabulous meets everyday and passion joins creativity. Celebrating 10 years of writing, I hope to continue to connect with likeminded women who are fearlessly pursing life on their terms. (Edit)
