WHO ARE YOU?
My name is Filza (I promise it not half as complicated as you’d think! Think of it like fill-za). And I’m 24!
WHERE IN THE WORLD ARE YOU?
YOU CAN FIND ME IN THE BEST CITY IN THE WORLD – VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Canada.
WHAT DO YOU DO?
I am the curator behind Sahlt and a self-proclaimed creative genius. Besides Sahlt I can be found in West Vancouver running errands for my “real world” job at Vestis Fashion group!
WHEN DID YOU START BLOGGING?
I fell in love with blogging towards the end of my Fashion Merchandising Program (Blanche Macdonald) in 2014. I properly started last year but I’m still trying to maintain a work-work-life balance and blog more often!
WHY DID YOU BEGIN BLOGGING?
I’ve always enjoyed writing and when I truly found my voice I began writing compelling, raw and witty articles about my wardrobe, aesthetic and general unfiltered opinions on all things fashion.
WHO INSPIRED YOU TO START BLOGGING?
The real credit behind my blog goes to Tavi Gevinson. Her story inspired me to write and share with the world! She began blogging at the young age of 12 and gained international recognition through her blog STYLE ROOKIE and is now an all around badass actress, writer and editor-in-chief of her own magazine, ROOKIE.
WHAT IS THE MOST EXPENSIVE ITEM IN YOUR CLOSET RIGHT NOW?
My absolutely amazing Max Mara coat! It is a dream and a half and I get butterflies every time I look at it.
COFFEE OR TEA?
100% a coffee fiend. No morning begins without a tall Americano over ice.
DO YOU HAVE ANY SIBLINGS?
YES. 2 sisters.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE PERFUME?
My favourite perfume(S) at the moment are Clementine California by Atelier Cologne and Blanche by Byredo. There’s something so incredibly cheerful about crisp scents in the winter season.
WHO IS YOUR MUSE?
CATS OR DOGS?
I love both! Anything I can give my affection to, I will.
iOS OR ANDROID?
PLEASE. iOS or bust.
WHAT’S YOUR BAD HABIT?
I have a really bad temper and a smart mouth to match.
WHAT IS THE LAST SONG YOU PLAYED ON YOUR PHONE?
FADE – KANYE WEST
WHAT IS THE LAST THING YOU ATE?
An orange! I have to get my Vitamin C somehow in this depressing rainy Vancouver weather.
WHO IS THE LAST PERSON YOU TEXTED?
My fiancee to wish him goodnight.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE MOVIE?
Jurassic Park. I don’t care what you say but that scene with the water cup is iconic.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE DRINK?
Coffee. I don’t much care for alcohol.
DO YOU HAVE A PHOBIA?
I have a phobia of clowns. If I ever cross paths with one I will spontaneously combust into tears.
WHAT IS YOUR PET PEEVE?
I cannot stand people who walk slow, chew with their mouth open or speak unnecessarily loudly in public settings.
WHAT COLOUR WOULD YOU NEVER WEAR?
Any shade of green. It makes me look sick.
ARE YOU SINGLE?
I am engaged to be married to the love of my life and I’m super excited for this chapter in our lives.
STREET SMARTS OR BOOK SMARTS?
I’m proud to say I possess both!
DO YOU HAVE ANY SPECIAL TALENTS?
Besides a background in dance, and being fluent in sarcasm I’m currently teaching myself Swedish, Russian and Farsi.
WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE?
Their eyes. If someone has kind eyes I’m more inclined to talk to them.
A proud-ass Aries. I never fail to remind anyone that as an arian I am first born under the sun and therefore, a natural leader.
I am terrified of needles to the point that I can’t even get a flu shot without fainting. I don’t even know my own blood type!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE STORE TO SHOP AT?
OAK + FORT
WHAT IS THE MEANING BEHIND YOUR BLOG NAME?
Sahlt is extremely significant to me in more ways than one. Salt is the moral of a very important story about self-worth which was passed down to me by my grandmother. And salt is incredible to me in the sense that it is so simple in its structure and appearance but holds so much power still. I loved the idea of something simple but significant and that’s how I found Sahlt. I added the H because it aesthetically looks better with it.
