Hi there, I’m Louisa Clements, but you can call me Lou and welcome to Living Lou. I’m a 19 year old food blogger from Toronto, Ontario and I love every second of it. I have been completely smitten with cooking and baking ever since getting my first Betty Crocker Kids Cookbook when I was about 7. To this day, I still use recipes from that wonderful book, and look to it for inspiration.
I am passionate about leading a healthy lifestyle and inspiring others to follow suit. Because of my love for cooking, here on Living Lou, I put an emphasis on healthy eating. There’s nothing I enjoy more than developing, testing and writing about recipes that I love and your body loves. My love for cooking is known by everyone. I’m often the girl who brings along baked goods to class, I never show up empty handed to a party and I love to bring treats for the kids I’m babysitting. It is common knowledge that I absolutely, positively, adore everything about food.
While I spend lots of time on Living Lou, it’s not the only thing that I do. I love film, TV and media. Naturally, my love for that area has to manifest itself somewhere and that’s where being a full time film and media production student comes in. It keeps me pretty busy. I also play guitar and enjoy reading, writing and fashion. I want to say that I enjoy exercise, but I don’t think I’m quite there yet. One day, my friends, one day.
ABOUT THE BLOG
Living Lou was born in May 2010. I wasn’t really sure what I was doing at first, all I knew was that I loved getting recipes from all over the blogosphere and I thought it would be a fun and creative outlet for my then, barely 17 year old self. As a strictly recipe following girl I wanted to try my hand at creating recipes and food photography – which is an art form in itself! Living Lou is a journey and has presented me with many opportunities I wouldn’t have had.
