'Work hard to achieve your goals. Then you will blossom. Like a lily.' That's the motto behind the Lily Like.
So, you want to know what Lily Like is like? No pun intended. My name is Lilia Kazakova and I am the founder of Lily Like. I am 23 years old and I was born on 10/10, which is in my opinion the coolest date ever. I'm a Russian (mixed) girl born in Amsterdam, The Netherlands and moved to Groningen 4 years ago, to start a new chapter of my life as a law student at the University of Groningen (RUG). After finishing my LL.B. in Dutch law with an average of 8.0, I decided to pursue the Research Master in Law LL.M. and Philosophy of a Specific Scientific Field B.A. I currently live in Washington DC, and just graduated from the General LL.M. at George Washington University Law School (GWU).
You're probably wondering how a law student decided to become a blogger and Youtuber as well. Here's the thing: Although I love studying law and philosophy, I always felt like something was missing. I am a very creative person, and I missed having an outlet for all my ideas. That is why I started blogging. Now, 3 years later, my blog Lily Like is an online platform for anything beauty, fashion, lifestyle and university/study related. I love to share fashion trends and my personal style, and my favorite beauty products and new releases. I enjoy discussing more lifestyle oriented topics as well, such as travel, interior and food. Last but not least, you will find loads of study and university related material here. Study tips, motivation, philosophical pieces, and much more! So definitely have a browse and check it out!
My blog started out as a hobby, but it slowly became way more than that. I so happy that I am able to make a business out of my passion: Since October 2014, my blog Lily Like is my official company. My Kamer van Koophandel number is 61628115 and my BTW number is NL218316355B01. Since the first of July 2016 I also started my Luxury Student Stationery webshop called Supplied by Lily. It's a stationery line I designed especially for students that matches my minimal, rose gold, and marble aesthetic perfectly. Check out this page if you want more info about it.
In September 2017 I also started another project called Miss Independent Mag. This is an online magazine for every Miss Independent out there. I created this magazine together with my babes Kirsten en Nienke and we will be talking about Career, Happiness, Online Entrepreneurship, Feminism and Lifestyle.
In June 2018, I officially registered my second company, this time in the US, called Lily Like LLC. I am really excited to become a fulltime online entrepreneur and I cannot wait to share all my new projects with you!
