After a year and a half with an unsatisfied layout the perfectionist boldly shut down her site for 2 months to bring it back to life with a new look. In her search for web designers a team of web developers were recommended to her, Inspiratica.
At her core, event coordinating is where Layla’s heart is. This summer she contributed to the launch of flYYZ, a chic networking event held every Sunday in the heart of downtown Toronto inside the Proof Vodka Bar + Sky Lounge inside the Intercontiental Yorkville. Within the second week of the event’s existence, Layla celebrated the relaunch of her site www.FollowtheL.com sponsored by Sony Music Canada.
