I am Victoria the creator of VZ Collective and I want to welcome you to my blog and thank you for stopping by!
This website has been a thought in the back of my head for a long time but I didn’t have the courage to try to make it a reality until summer 2017.
Feel free to ask questions, make suggestions and keep conversations going so that we can benefit and live our best lives.
A little bit about me:
Makeup was my first obsession. In fact, one of my first memories was getting a new Barbie coloring book and immediately coloring all the lips, red mostly, but sometimes pink; followed quickly by different colors of eye shadow. Ever since I can remember I have been drawn to beautiful things and obsessed with examining their details. One of my favorite things to do as a teen was analyze beauty stories and product photos in magazines. Its actually something I still do to this day, thanks to Instagram. #obsessed
As an adult, my job is as a Registered Nurse but my passion continues to be to create beauty. Makeup was just a doorway though; as my experiences have grown my focus has turned to learning new skills and filling my life with happiness in all aspects. I am always researching and using new products or starting new projects.
I’ve always found joy in helping my friends; saving them the time and trouble by sharing my experience + knowledge about products or projects that I’ve done. I’ve had many long texts talking about all of that but, not only would they get lost after awhile, I also wanted to reach more people. If there’s one thing I’ve learned from Instagram – its the community of sharing. I’ve learned so much from people openly sharing their ideas, images and experiences and I wanted to add my own personal spin on it.
The goal of this website is to find ways to make beauty, wellness, self sufficiency and creativity more attainable for anyone who wants to try. Even if I help just one person do something the couldn’t; whether it be cook a meal, create a unique item or do their own makeup; that’s enough for me. Because I feel that life should be full of experiences that make you happy and nothing is more fulfilling than setting a goal and achieving it!
