Hello there! My name is Zoe Raymond and I’m turning 23 this year! From my name, it’s predictable that people who have not met me wonder if I am a guy or a girl. I used to attend an All-Girls’ school and teachers would do a double take when they see my name. My parents gave me this name and so it’s in my birth certificate-my dad’s name is actually Raymond!
I have been blogging since my secondary school days. Back then, it was in to own a blog so I started one with the help of a good friend. My blog revolved around both happy and sad life stories. My friends and I read each others’ blogs to keep us updated of one another’s lives. Subsequently, from 2006, (when I was 17!), I started doing modeling events and photo shoots to earn allowances for food and transport.
I began blogging pictures of various assignments I took up and also started receiving emails on advertising opportunities. This was when doors started opening for me to share more on Fashion and Beauty.
In 2010, I graduated from Bachelor of Marketing with RMIT. With this degree, I managed to get a job in the travel industry and am now working full time. I love my job! I have got the most awesome team and we work and party together-there’s really nothing more to ask for. I still hold onto my blog dearly cause it’s something I have done for almost a decade now and I really can’t let it go. It is challenging initially to work and still blog but fortunately I have learnt to better manage my time, and so ZoeRaymond.com is still around! *Throws confetti shamelessly* Teeheee! Though I am not your perfect blogger because I don’t have the best command of English, occasionally make grammatical and spelling mistakes in my posts, i however assure you that you will be entertained with my various posts which I come up with to the best of my ability for my readers!!
I also joined the Nuffnang team in 2010 and I have been enjoying myself ever since! With this I receive many of the latest products in the market today to review, get invited to awesome events and cool parties, movie premieres and even holidays overseas!
Besides giving me luscious hair, they supported me with full-sized samples to my readers as well! ((: So yes! Readers get rewarded for reading too! :D
Kanebo was one of my favorites too!
We were there as judges and Laurier gave us a Polaroid camera each! :D :D
Another cool event was 2011 Prime Time Fashion Fall by Robinsons held at Avalon! Avalon had just commenced business then, so I was really excited to attend the private event there!
Also met quite a number of Nuffies there! :D
The last time I visited Hong Kong was when my sister and I were in Primary school so it was really fabulous to be able to visit HK again, to stay in HKDL’s hotel and have the best breakfast ever with my favorite Disney characters!
The other trip Nuffnang got me packing my luggage was for Star Cruises!
Nuffnang events are always out of the box, fun and it helps me widen my social circle as well!
