Paige’s People - Allison Lansverk

So, it's thursday and I have another Paige's People for you! Today we're jumping over the pond, to talk to Dr Allison Lansverk, blogger and instagramer!

1. When and why did you begin your blog?
I started my blog during grad school writing about field work and other science-related topics mostly. I took a break as I finished up my dissertation, but then in February this year I decided to give my blog a makeover and include other topics such as travel and fashion! My initial motivation was that I wanted a creative outlet during a time that I was spending most of my life doing research, and lately, I’ve enjoyed writing about fun experiences that we’ve been having in our new home!

2. Name your aesthetic in one word?

3. If you could travel back to any era, which would it be and why?
Probably early 1800s so I could live out a Jane Austen novel

4. How do you get inspiration for your pictures?
We’re relatively new to DC, so mostly from exploring the area and seeing all the fun sites. Also, it’s also fun to get inspiration from the many friends I’ve made through Instagram!

5. Go to icecream flavour?
Mint Chocolate Chip

6. What is one piece of advice that you would have for a young blogger, starting out?
Do it for yourself because you enjoy it, and try not to compare yourself to others! As they say comparison is the thief of joy!

7. Favourite show to binge on netflix and why?
Imposters! I love the dark humor!

8. What is one moment that you wish you could put into a crystal ball and keep forever?
Probably our wedding day when we were saying our vows and a breeze was blowing colorful fall leaves from the trees above the ceremony space.

9. One goal you hope to achieve this year?
I would love to finish writing my novel! I have half of it written and it would feel so good to have it finished.

10. Where we can find you?
Washington, DC! Which is a beautiful city that also happens to be the capital of the US! And of course you can also find my on my Instagram (@allisonllansverk) or on my blog (

Massive thanks to Allison! She produces such beautiful content, please go and check her out!
