Laura Groenewoud

Style and Sushi is written by me, Laura, a 22-year-old millenial girl discovering who I am by sharing my life experiences in a relatable and honest way. I started my blog Style and Sushi back in 2011, when I was only 14 years old. I wanted to write about the things I wore and what I did during a day, as writing has always been my passion. Style and Sushi became my creative outlet where I documented my style changes and write about the things I love. Throughout the years I have learnt a lot and slowly turnt my little corner on the internet into the creative outlet it is today.

I used to describe myself as a 'personal style blogger'. I would like to think I still am one, however I am definitely not a size 0 and am proud of how I am as a mid to plus-size gal. With Style and Sushi I hope to encourage any girl or boy out there to be comfortable in their own skin even with all of your insecurities.

I am a firm believer of that should wear whatever you would like to wear, as long as you're feeling confident and comfortable in it. I also don't necessarily keep up with the latest trends. My style is pretty minimal actually, as I get a lot of inspiration from Scandinavian style, so you won't see any crazy colours on my blog.

Style and Sushi started out as a personal style blog, but I soon discovered my love for photography, beauty and lifestyle too which I try to incorporate onto my blog. Over the years I have found my voice and I still like to write about my personal style, with an occasional beauty and skincare, travel, recipe or mental health post. 

PR Samples/Gifts: I am fortunate enough to receive PR samples and gifts from brands. However the majority of items shown on Style and Sushi are purchased with my own money. I aim to give you a clear and honest insight into the products I use and will only mention products if I like them, as I would never want anyone to spend money on something I wouldn't buy myself. Even if an item has been given to me it will only ever make an appearance on the blog if I actually use it and would want to repurchase that item/think it would be helpful to you. In the aim of transparency any PR samples or gifts will always be marked with a "*" behind the item mentioned. I will also always mention in the post whether the item mentioned has been gifted or not. 

Affiliate Links: Style and Sushi may use affiliate links. As of February 2019, this is always mentioned in the blog post itself. Affiliate links means I receive a commission if you order something via affiliate links I share on my blog. Some of the links on Style and Sushi are affiliate links via Skimlinks or ShopStyle. This does not affect the price of the products you buy.

Sponsored Content: Sponsored posts may occasionally appear on Style and Sushi. I am very careful to pick with whom I work with and if I decide to work with a brand, I will say so in the beginning of the blog post. These will always be clearly marked with "AD - This is a sponsored post". All sponsored posts will remain relevant, honest and be written by me, containing my own opinions. With all sponsored content, I will only ever accept a brief that I feel fits with Style and Sushi, and will never review something for the sake of it. It has to fit the content of my blog and I have to like it.

Photos/Content/Design: All photos and content are created by me unless otherwise stated. My blog design was made by kayluxedesign and I've altered it myself.
