Darling of the Week (Valerie Stachurski)

 If you’re from Toronto, and have a twitter account, you’ve most likely heard of Val. She’s the smart and creative brain behind one of our favorite sites, I‘m Charming You.  We had the pleasure of catching up with her, and couldn’t help but to ask her a few questions.

Confession: we love anyone who loves Oscar Wilde as much as us. We made the trek to Paris just to visit his grave.  


Tell us a bit about yourself.

I moved to Toronto 3 years ago and started my blog ImCharmingYou.com to chronicle my adventures of trying to make it in the big city. After working at a series of jobs that just weren’t for me, I eventually came to the conclusion that I could do it better on my own. In May 2012, I launched my own PR and Social Media agency, Charming Media and here we are 🙂

I am wearing: Usually gym clothes. I spend my life at my computer and at the gym.

The most versatile item in my closet: A casual black blazer from Canadian clothing company Miik, that can be dressed up or down and is perfect for business and play.

Beauty must-haves… Very black, eye-popping mascara,  a reddish maroon lipstick and tinted moisturizer

One thing every girl should have: One very over-priced, versatile handbag from Louis Vuitton

What are you listening to right now: Katy Perry, always Katy Perry

The one thing I can’t leave the house without: My cell phone!

Favorite place to eat in the city: Gusto 101

Ideal friday night plans: A bottle of malbec, nail polish, a face mask and my television

All time favorite book/movie: The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
