Women are a moving, changing, creative power in this world. Self-expression is something that each one of us can truly showcase, as we are unique and truly have something to share with this world.
FYSH UK through its magnificently powerful campaign HOOKED ON LIFE showcased the unique visions of 6 unique women. All coming from different walks of life. Each having her own story to share.
Today is Ariane Laezza, Actress and Art Blogger.
“Being Yourself in a
World That Is Always
Trying To Make You
is the best Feeling.” ~ Ariane Laezza
I’ve had an opportunity to ask Ariane about her outlook on life and people, and how she manages to channel her creative juices into her daily life. Her arsenal is not a single element she does magic with. She’s a well-rounded, always bumping her new skills with new knowledge and experience. Her “secret” lies in her differentiation from what other people in her space do.
“I feel like I’ve worked on creating a niche for myself that complements my strengths, experiences and passions. I’ve worked as a fashion model for over 12 years but have also received degrees in Visual Culture (my passion), Marketing (my industry) and Digital Communications (my tools) so that I could prepare myself for entrepreneurship in the creative field.
I acquired various experience in Content Development, Experiential Marketing, Graphic Design and Photography which helps me in my current venture and passion: Nubi Trading Co. We import and distribute beautiful, natural skincare products from the Middle East and are opening our first Canadian Flagship in downtown Toronto this September. My love of travel, cultures and unique, artisanal products is what led me to taking a chance and embarking on this venture.”
Many women ask a question of How they could create a powerful business that they love and are passionate about. We had a very powerful discussion of the beginning steps and the power of the differentiation. Ariane has her very unique attempt to mold her business around her passions and likes and her irreverent approach to life.
When I asked Ariane What Difference she’s striving to make in people’s lives with her passionate career, here’s what she said.
“With Nubi Trading Co. we really want to share the rich culture and unique stories behind our products: Nabulsi Soap and Trinitae. Nabulsi Soap is an all-natural olive oil soap and is part of one of the oldest soap-making traditions in the world. What was once a thriving industry is now risking disappearing due to various political and economic reasons.
When I was introduced to Nabulsi Soap by my business partner Hisham Masri (his family runs one of the last existing soap factories in the region) I immediately fell in love with the story and the quality of the product whose technique dates back 1000 years and is still hand-crafted today.
I think people these days are interested in knowing exactly what they are putting on their skin as well as where and how their products are made – Nubi Trading Co. strives to offer high-quality products that people can discover for the first time, trust and (hopefully) fall in love with. Our Trinitae line is something I’m really excited about since it’s the first, exclusive, skincare boutique in Canada that offers luxurious Dead Sea products from Jordan that are natural, paraben and sulfate free.
Trinitae’s motto is “Love Yourself First” and we really want to encourage people to pamper themselves on a daily basis. Trinitae believes in nourishing your mind, body and soul – and the little luxuries in life, like beautiful skincare is part of that.”

As the HOOKED ON LIFE Campaign has a deep impact on its participants and those who it is aimed at, I was curious to find out Ariane’s personal sense of style and if and how fashion affects her in feeling and acting it out during the day.
“I think my style is pretty eclectic – meaning that I’m influenced by so many different looks, eras, colors, cuts etc. I dress according to how I feel, and I don’t really take fashion too seriously, but there’s no doubt that when you feel good in what you’re wearing you can feel (and be) unstoppable.
To me, style is less about what you wear, but how you wear it. I love adding unique pieces to my wardrobe from my travels, my boyfriend’s closet, my mother’s vintage staples, etc. – this way I feel that even what I’m wearing has a story…and I always love a good story.”
