Hi! Welcome to Retrolillies! I’m Chaya, the 19 year old writer, baker and picture taker behind this blog. Here, I blog about what I cook + bake (sometimes, the things I wear and make), write about the little things that make me smile, and post pictures to document events and memories.
I hope my blog inspires you to stop, slow down, and smell the roses  lilies. Make something! Bake something! And of course, don’t forget to say hi. I’d love to hear from you!
Happy reading!


Are all the pictures featured on your blog original?
Yes, unless otherwise specified. I take all pictures including food and DIY photos. Outfit pictures are all taken by family.
What camera do you use?
A Canon Rebel T4i. I use a standard 18-55mm lens, a 1.8, and a telephoto lens.
Are all your recipes original?
Most of the recipes on this site are adaptations of recipes I love, carefully curated and edited from the best websites and cookbooks. I always provide proper credit and rewrite the recipe in my own words, and all pictures are mine.
Can I take a picture from your blog?
Of course! Just be sure to link it back and let me know.
How did you decide which topics to cover on your blog?
Simple! I started this blog to express myself creatively, so I cover things that inspire me; that includes food, fashion, writing and photography.

    Good tips for new bloggers. So many people focus on Page rank. Page rank is useless if the site doesn’t have good content.
