Good morning! A new year means a lot of new blogger spotlights! We start this year with Fleur Smit from the blog ‘FleurSophia. Fleur have a big passion for blogging, fashion and traveling. When she followed many bloggers she got dreaming of her own blog. After winning of her fairs she decided to started one of her own. Lucky she started with her blog journey otherwise we did not saw her gorgeous outfit and travels (like New York). Let’s get to know her a bit better…
1. Can you tell us a little about yourself?
Hi everyone! My name is Fleur Smit and I am a 23-year-old girl with a big passion for blogging, fashion and traveling. I just bought a house with my boyfriend in Amersfoort and I feel very blessed to finally have my own place (I’ve lived in different student houses for the past 5 years) now.
2. What was the reason why you started your blog?
I’ve always been following a lot of fashion and beauty blogs and when I read them, I was always thinking how I would write or design my own blogposts. From that moment I was dreaming about my own blog, but was too scared to start one. After a while I couldn’t resist only read others and had to start my own. And after figuring out how the blog world worked, Fleur Sophia was born! 😀
3. How would you describe your clothing style?
Haha, that is a good, but also hard question to answer. But I’ll try. Uhm, I think my clothing style is a good combination of tough and girly. I love to wear boyfriend jeans, Dr Martens shoes en oversized knits, but on the other side I am also a typically skirts and dresses girl. What I love the most is combining the tough and girly look with each other!
4. How do you keep coming up with material/content for your blog? Many people struggle with coming up with different articles/posts
When I have a busy and stressful period, I notice that I am often out of inspiration. But when I’m longer than 15 minutes in my car or in the shower, I notice that the inspiration automatically pops up in my mind. So when I’m in a need of blog inspiration, it’s necessary to relax.
6. What’s now on your wishlist?
After buying a dark grey scarf from Acne Studios, I really want the black one (and camel coloured) too. And the things that are on my wishlist for ages are the black leather Gucci loafers, classic Burberry trenchcoat and a designer bag, like the Celine triobag, Proenza PS11, Mulberry Lily or Chanel 2.55. Oke, I think I need to save money from now on, haha!
7. Who are your favorite bloggers?
Pfoe that is a difficult question, since I follow a lot of bloggers. My favourite fashionbloggers are tiphainesdiary.com, creatorsofdesire.com/polienne, sincerelyjules.com and queenofjetlegs.com. My favourite travelbloggers are whatabouther.nl, grabyourbags.nl, travellab.nl and reisjunk.nl. My favourite ‘all round’ bloggers are jenniefromtheblog.nl, acupoflife.nl and kittehscupcakes.nl.
8. If someone is interested in blogging, what would be a few things you would suggest? Tips!
Cliché but true: throw all your fears away and just do it. It’s also necessary to be patient (you can’t have a tons of followers the first month/year. And last but not least: start blogging for yourself, to inspire others or whatever, but not to earn money.
