What are my favorite shops?
I’m a Zara addict! That’s definitely my favorite store. Zara have always a great collection. I never come out with nothing :). H&M and Mango are also my favorite. H&M have always beautiful items for great prices and is always good for the basics. When I’m shopping online I mostly order at Nelly, boohoo or H&M. H&M is easy to return articles.
Which camera do I use, and who takes your pictures?
The camera I use is a Canon EOS 100D and the lens I use is a Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 (outfit posts) and a EF-S 18-55 IS STM lens (for events). Actually everyone takes my pictures, haha. Most of the time my blogger friends before we go to an event or we planned a shooting date. Most of the time we do than 2 or 3 outfits. Lucky I have a view friends who supporting me with my blog and I could always ask them to help me.
Which app’s do I use to edit my Instagram pictures?
I’m always using the app Afterlight to edit my pictures for Instagram. Playing with the lights and am always use the filters nico, russ and leila. The white square around my photo’s I’m using the app InstaFrame.
What did your study?
I study Tourism and Leisure management.
Why did you start blogging?
I got inspired by other bloggers and I though I would be fun if I could inspired others like they inspired me. And am right! I love to do this, finally I found something what I’m passion about. And an other big reason was, I want a job in the fashion industry. I don’t did a study in that direction and with my blog I could see a little bit from the fashion industry.
What is your dream job?
I wanna be the next Danie bles, haha. Yes, my dream job is to become a stylist. Or to combine my study with fashion and then PR would be the perfect job for me. To represent brands and organized event in the branch I loved, yes please! Am still looking so if you have any tips, please tell me. It’s really hard to find a job in fashion or PR.
How do I combi this with my blog?
I have a full-time job. Most of the times a make 40hours (or more) a week. So to be honest it’s very hard!. I’m always busy and I’m working very late at night or early just like now, 05.30. But I don’t mind! I love this and I couldn’t live without my blog.
Is blogging your work or a hobby?
Well you can find the answers above ;P. But no. Blogging is only a hobby for me. I don’t have the intension to became a big/famous blogger. I do something what I loved and I hope to find a job in fashion. My blog can help me to make the right connections.
How long did it take for your blog to become more known?
I’m blogging now for 2,5 years. The first year was nothing serious. So after 1,5 year my blog became more known. I got invitations to events, met other bloggers and network a lot and that was the beginning.
What is the best event you attended?
Gosh! A lot! But the events from Unlimted PR I always loved. Unlimited PR showed the brands at a very fun and creative way. A few weeks ago I had a bloggers diner from Boohoo organized by Dorst & Lesser and that was really great. The events from ECCO are always so much fun. Oh and I had the changes to participate at the Esprite style battle. The best part of the events is to meet other bloggers. It’s always fun with them because yo have the same interest. So if you are with great company every event would be fun.
How do you network?
Most of the time at events. And in the very beginning I send emails to pr bureaus. I ask them of it’s possible to be on the perslist. Sometimes you have to take risks. When I heard from an other blogger about an event I mail them of it’s possible I could also come. You already have a no, so you nothing have to lose. But you have to be confident about your blog and ask it properly.
Are you signed up at a PR-agency or some other kind of agency?
Where do you get the inspiration for all your outfits?
Other blogs, Lookbook, Instagram and the street.
Has your style developed over the years and are there any outfits you would never wear again?
Yes definitely. I love to follow the trends, but I always stay true to myself. I have many styles it’s depends of my mood. Girly, tough, bohemian I have it all, haha. Now am really into the minimal style, but than can changes quick by me. About the other question, yes. I have a view looks that is horrible! What was I’m thinking! But I think everyone have that.
How are you searching your outfits together?. You start with a particular item/clothing or you have already the whole look in your head?
Difficult question. Actually I do both! When am shopping and I see something that I want I already thinking how could I combine this and making in my head already looks with it. Like I told you above I get inspired by other bloggers and then am already looking for some look.
What would your dream place to shoot?
Dubia, on pictures I saw a lot of beautiful places. Oh and Paris nearby the eiffel tower
Okay don’t laugh! I love the Lord of the rings movies. White chicks never get old and as kind I was a big fan of the movie Hocus Pocus with Sarah Jessica Parker. Oh and of course Sex and the City ;).
What’s on your bucket list?
I love to travel and I want to see a lot of the world. For a long time it was travel through Asia, but recently I did that. Now on my list are Los Angeles (Attending Coachella), Hawaii, Maldives and Australia. But I have to save for that, hihi.
How does your ideal day look like?
Wake up in my beautiful luxe penthouse, going to my walk-in-closet to pick out a stylish outfit. Having a great breakfast, going to the city with friends to shop a little bit and coming home to my hot look-a-like Ian Somerhalder boyfriend. Haha well this would be a perfect day! Yep, keep dreaming!
Well that’s it for now, I hope you liked it. I really enjoyed working on this post so maybe in the near future I will do another Q&A post!
