Can you tell us a little bit about what you do and when you got into it?
I’m a fashion blogger and engineer student. That’s two different thing but they are my life! I started my blog three years ago because I wanted to share my style, because I was a teenage girl becoming a woman and I felt it was missing out on the blogger’s world. Also I wanted a little “escape” from my engineering life and numbers.
How’s 2015 been for you? Any major highlights?
It was awesome! I gave interviews on television and did some travelling for work! And a looot of photoshoots, that always sounds success in this business! Partnerships, events, travels! These made my year!
What song have you got on repeat at the moment?
Omg! I think it’s “Love Yourself” by Justin Bieber! He’s rocking my spotify.
What fashion advice do you have for a man?
Don’t be afraid! I know a lot of men that are afraid of what people are gonna think about their style, but you have to be yourself and wear whats makes you feel good. Sounds cliche but it’s true!
If you could give your younger self one piece of advice what would it be?
The same: be yourself and love yourself! When I grew up, I realised I was caring too much about what people were thinking about me and their opinion, and what really matters is what YOU want.
1 tip to grow your Instagram account
Have great pictures and be charismatic, then it will grow naturally!
What’s the one thing you never want to see a guy wearing?
Hmm, I don’t know! Maybe a bra! Haha
Any major plans for 2016?
More jobs, my YouTube channel and more hairstyle tutorials! And of course: grow even more!!
What is your one guilty pleasure?
I am a chocaholic, can’t spend a day without eating a piece of chocolate and I love fast food. Hamburgers and french fries are maybe my fav foods!
Who’s the most stylish man on the planet for you right now?
Mariani Di Vaio! From the head to toes, he is awesome!
