Social-media-lite Valerie Stachurski is going to charm you. Y’ready? This blogger-turned-PR practitioner is one of Toronto’s most influential tweeters, and one of View the Vibe’s favourite drinkin’ pals. Want in on Val’s world? Read on…
Give us a snippet about you. What should people know?
I’m an Ottawa native and I moved to Toronto four years ago. I started a company called Charming Media that offers PR, social media and online marketing. I have a dog named Oscar who I really love. *smiles*
Finish this sentence: I love Toronto because…
…it’s the only place I know of that a Twitter handle and a blog can help you carve out a career.
What are three things you simply cannot live without?
My cell phone, coffee, and red wine.
What’s your favourite restaurant and why?
I really love Rock Lobster these days. They can do no wrong there. Affordable, fresh lobster? Yes! And the atmosphere is amazing.
What’s your favourite drink/cocktail and where do you go to get it?
I’m a red wine girl through and through. There are a ton of amazing places to grab a delicious glass of vino in Toronto, so it really comes down to atmosphere and what I’m feeling that day.
Who’s your favourite designer/brand and why do you sport their fashions?
I’m a sucker for Louis Vuitton bags. Not sure why, but LV is my go-to. The bags are strong enough to take my abuse and still look great after years of rough-housing.
