About Lorita | Ting & Things

Hi there, I’m Lorita. Welcome to my blog! Ting & Things is a lifestyle blog about fun, travel and all sorts of pretty things.

I consider myself a girl with many hats and someone with an inquisitive mind. Because I always find myself exploring new areas of interest from time to time. I started out as a graphic designer and have now evolved to become a digital content creator and marketer. I'm also a self-taught baker who enjoys dressing up my baked goods and making my cakes look pretty. I am THAT girl who likes to take pictures of her food (okay, I admit I take pictures of everything) and share them on a blog and Instagram (that’s just my way of appreciating the good stuff. Otherwise, there won’t be any content on my blog either!).

I first started this blog in 2007 with the name, Every Little Thing where I pretty much blogged (or documented) about everything. Hence is why the name. I wanted to keep a journal of my life and that was it. As life progresses, I want to inspire others with what I do most and best. And that is trying new experiences and making things pretty. That’s why a name change is needed to reflect this new chapter of my blog.

So why the name, Ting & Things? Simple. I wanted something catchy, easy to remember and available as a domain. Another reason was because the word, “Ting” means pretty and it’s also part of my Chinese name. When you combine Every Little Thing with Ting, we have Ting & Things.

My husband, Will, and I currently live in Toronto, Canada in a little town house in the suburbs. Aside from trip planning and hustling, we are also tackling a lot of home improvements ourselves and making our house a home. Be sure to watch for all our home improvements here on my blog!

Thanks for visiting!
