When do you decided to start a blog?
I was inspired by my tattoo (egypcian cat Bastet, because of that I made a drawing of a cat logo) and I started to think about fashion, and I got the conclusion that fashion is simply what comes indise you... I want to inspire and encourage other people to dress the way they want without fear. I want them to start following their instinct to dress the way they want.
My blog means "instinct to dress". I always follow my instinct when I dress myself.
It was succesful since the beggining? If not, what encouraged you to continue posting?
At the beginning was really hard, but if you do this with passion, I think the success come naturally...
Did you have a lot of friends that supported your work, or it was only you and the web?
Yes, my friends are the best! They always support me to never give up :)
Have you done collaborations? When did they start?
Yes I do, start with the lookbook.nu
How did you feel when you saw that your blog was being succesful?
I feel really glad and grateful :)
Someone helped you with the blog design and organisation?
Yes, my husband help me a lot!
Have you studied something related to fashion? It's helpful to write the blog?
Yes I study fashion design. I think help a little bit, but if you like fashion and start to do searches more about its easy to write.
Is blogging a job or a hobby? If it's not a job, what do you do to earn a living?
I think the both. But I consider my real job as fashion producer.
Who take your photos? Is always the same person?
My mom and my husband.
Do you edit the photos?
Yes I do, its really important :)
Typical question for well known bloggers: do you get a lot of free clothes?
Yes I do.
The clothes you show on the blog, are the ones you wear to spend the day or you just wear them for the photo?
I use everything day to day
You have a lookbook account too, what came first: lookbook or your blog? And the one was a consequence of the other?
Always my blog first! I love the feedback of my followers on my blog, I like to have a close friendship with them :)
What did you do to be seen?
Basically lookbook.nu and another social media like facebook page, twitter, pinterest, etc...
