An avid and experienced world traveller, Baker plans romantic getaways with her husband, Ryan, who is also a civil servant. Baker chronicles their adventures on her four-year-old blog, Style Domination, her Instagram feed @Dominique.Baker, and her YouTube channel.
Far from prescribing “what’s in and what’s out,” Baker says, “I write as though I’m speaking to a friend.” Readers seem to relate to her warm approachability. “I try to keep it real, and right from the heart,” says Baker, who is in her early 40s.
Based on the messages she gets from around the world, Baker says her readers tend to be much like her, in terms of loving style but not taking it – or themselves – too seriously.
A frequent presence on Baker’s social media is her puppy, Reece. “I’m in love with him. He looks like a peanut butter cup!”
Although he hasn’t yet accompanied Baker on her globetrotting adventures, he may in the future.
“I want to travel with my pup more, and I’m thrilled to see that more hotels are becoming pet-friendly,” she says, adding that on a recent trip to Chicago, she even spotted a couple of pet spas. Baker will also be sure to travel with her Visa Infinite Privilege Card, “something I’ve been waiting a long time for," she says, adding that she is happy to share her research on the card with her followers.
