About Sivan

Sivan Ayla is a Los Angeles native living with her husband Paul / Richard and two puppies, Olive & Lyla. She started her blog as a creative outlet while working a job she didn’t love. Today her blog is dedicated to realistic approaches to styling, cooking, home décor, travel, and beauty in the most casual but luxurious fashion.

+ Lux Unfiltered is a term coined by this blog, as Sivan is always trying to live her best life in an attainable way. The idea is to always find a reason to pop some champagne. Even on a Tuesday.

How Do I Edit My Pictures & What Camera Do I Use?

99% of my Instagram photos are taken on my iPhone 10 & edited on VSCO. I love the J & A series for editing. I shoot most of my YouTube videos on my Sony 5100 & edit on iMovie. My blog photos are shot with my Canon T3i or with my photographer. If you want a list of my equipment (lighting, apps, etc.) you can find it all in this blog post.

Who Does My Hair?

Nikki Lee at 901 Salon in West Hollywood. To know what I ask when I get it done, check out this video.

How Did I Start My Blog?

I have a pretty extensive story behind starting my blog and growing it to where it is today. To read all the dirty details & learn my best blogging advice, check the Blogging Tips section.

Is My Tan Real?

Nope! Well, it’s partially real but that golden glow is directly from my favorite self-tanner Nº32 + Lux Unfiltered, which is my own brand! 

What Is My Sizing?

For starters, I’m 5’3” (fooled you!)…I just know my angles. I’m typically XS or S in tops & dresses, 25” – 26” in bottoms, 7.5 in shoes, & S in bikinis.

How Can We Collaborate?

The best way to reach me is email. Every other form of communication overwhelms me! For gifting or partnership inquiries, or if you just have a random question for me, email me at

Something you should know about me is I’m no bullshit. I tell it how it is, always. Yes, my livelihood and income derives from this blog, but I only work with brands and products that I 100% believe in. In many cases a paid sponsorships stems from me loving a product so much (& sharing it on my social media) that the brand reaches out to work together. Other times a brand might send me new products to try and if I love them then we might decide to work together. If you want to learn more about this process and logistics, I’ve written an extensive blog post all about it. I’ve worked really hard to earn the trust of my readers and value it more than anything. Trust me when I say I wouldn’t steer you wrong!
