Welcome to We Did It Podcast! The phrase "We Did It" shatters the idea that we are alone on our journey. Our successes (and even failures) are not achieved alone. In the We Did It Podcast we focus on the life stories behind the victories and failures of creative people. I believe everyone on this planet has creative tendencies but sometimes we feel shut off from our creativity. I want to talk about how to keep your creative channel open while laughing through some relatable topics. We are all the main characters in our story but that doesn't mean we are alone while we create our lives.

    We cover all things being online, creating through the ages, those breakthrough moments and showing up even when dealing with heartbreak. I am so grateful for Amelia's vulnerability and honestly through this conversation and I hope you love listening to it as much as I loved recording it.

    A Note from Dominique on Style Domination

    My name is Dominique and I’m a fashion, beauty and lifestyle blogger. A public servant by day, my blog, www.styledomination.com, serves as a creative outlet highlighting my deep interest in fashion and beauty with a focus on humour. After all, you need a sense of humour to spend $2000 on a handbag. Style Domination is simply a play on my name. My blog highlights how I “Dom-ify” my clothing, so really, it’s more of a focus on “Style Domification” of current trends and classic pieces alike. Promise – I don’t pretend to dominate anything! In the early part of 2015, my husband suggested I start a blog featuring all of the fun things I get up to. What started as a medium to share my crazy adventures and love of style soon turned into a go-to destination for beauty advice and reviews, fashion, and lifestyle, and soon expanded to YouTube. Since launching my blog, I have been featured in Flare Magazine, the Ottawa Citizen, Ottawa Life Magazine, Krowd Magazine, among others. I have also worked with many notable brands such as Ford Canada, Lincoln Motors of Canada, ALEX & ANI, Westin Hotels, Charlotte Tilbury, L’Oréal, Yves Saint Laurent Beauty, Givenchy Beauty and Giorgio Armani Beauty. In addition to blogging, I now speak to groups in the Ottawa area about how to boost confidence and self-esteem through style, along with giving back to the community through charitable work. In 2017, I was named a Person 2 Know by the United Way Ottawa, and was an Ambassador for The Ottawa Hospital. Be sure to check out my Instagram page for more fashion and beauty, and I have a host of fashion, beauty and lifestyle-related videos on my  ---- We want to thank Dominique for her time, her insight and her poise as we tackle the tough subjects. THANK YOU DOMINIQUE! xx
