Emily // Em La Jolie


Emily is the blogger behind Em La Jolie.

Describe your blog:

Em La Jolie is a collection of thoughts, experiences and advice from the trials and tribulations of a college jetsetter. With a flair for all things gold and French, it aims to be a source of both uplifting and fun material for readers.

What is your favorite post you’ve written or your favorite series/type of post?

My favorite series is my Weekend Travels, where I tell readers all about the trips I have taken and give advice for people who might be going to the same place soon!

What is something you wish you knew how to do related to blogging?

A thousand times, coding. I’m currently re-vamping my site and wishing I could just speak HTML already!

Why did you start blogging?

My mother is big into scrapbooking, but I never liked the inaccessibility of putting things into books, so I decided to create a sort of “online scrapbook” where I can record bits and pieces of my life and also share them.

What is your favorite social platform?

Instagram, because I’ve always enjoyed photography and capturing a moment, and I love getting a small glimpse of other peoples’ lives. It’s a very telling platform, in my opinion.

What are a few of your favorite Chicago blogs?

Sequins & Stripes

Project Soiree

The Golden Girl

The Fox & She

The Everygirl

Pretty & Fun (although she moved!)
