With so many fashion bloggers in this over saturated blogging market, it’s hard to find one that resonates with an impeccable and unique style that sets themselves apart from the rest of the sphere. While there are many with blogs, there are very few that really capture their audience. So, in the midst of all the flurry and media frenzy at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, we hunted down and found the lady behind the power blog The Haute Pursuit. Meet Vanessa Hong. The petite 31-year old New York based beauty with a Chinese heritage and a killer of a blog chats to Sporteluxe about her work, her health and wellness and how she loves to cook a gluten free vegetarian pizza!
I stay on top of my health by trying to get a run in every morning and drinking copious amounts of green tea and coffee.
I usually run about 5km in the Sydney outdoors because it’s so beautiful.
It’s been an evolution. I work with a creative who is also my partner. We travel around the world, mostly together and his name is Quan Mai (Geneticboi.lovespot.com). He’s also my photographer. My style is inspired by neutrals, so black, white and grey. Because I have blonde hair I don’t want to much craziness going on. Right now, my style is more relaxed I guess, and I’m wearing a lot of denim mixing it in with different kinds of stuff.
It’s my first time to Australia period and I fly home on the 20th. I’m originally from Vancouver Canada, but I live in New York now. It was snowing just before I left in March and snowed on the 1st day of Spring.
I’m Chinese. Both my parents are from Hong Kong. When I used to live in Beijing I used to go back maybe like twice a year, but now I haven’t been back in along time.
I’ve been blogging since 2010. It’s been a long time. I blog and consult and also have an e commerce site called THPSHOP which is full-time for me now.
You know this is hard to say, because I feel very very lucky as I was in the right place at the right time and not many people were blogging. I mean now it’s a lot more saturated. So my only tip is to do it cause you love it. And work hard. Bloggers are the hardest working people I know.
I’ve slowed down considerably because of Fashion Week, but I do two a week max, but before I used to do a post every day.
Gluten-free veggie pizza with chic pea flour. I used to make all my own cheeses but don’t have the time anymore. Green balls are great and super easy to make.
Spray Evian spray over your skin after you put your foundation on and you’ll have a glow all day.
