How did Wovenblends come about?
I started Wovenblends in my last year of college in 2015. Back then, I would play around a lot in the kitchen and document on Instagram, and people will comment asking me how to make a particular dish or where I shopped for my clothes. As a college student with not much money to spare, I always looked for steals in my favorite high street stores and for ways to cook nice meals on a budget. I wanted to showcase these two aspects of my life in a unique way and so I came up with woven blends, a compound word. Woven for fabric and blends for kitchen blender.
Why the name Wovenblends?
I wanted a catchy name that spoke to both aspects of my blog, the food, and the style part.
Which are you more passionate about, food or fashion?
