Meet the Blogger!
I have decided to start a new series here on Writing & Rambling after meeting so many lovely bloggers on Twitter I would like to get to know them. So I am going to try to recruit as many as I can as I think everyone deserves a chance to be in the spotlight. =)
Q1: Hello there, nice to have you here on Writing & Rambling! Please could you introduce yourself and tell us a little bit about your Blog:
Hello to all Writing & Rambling readers! Thank you very much Sarah for giving me the opportunity to be part of your Meet the Blogger series! I am Stella, a 20-something year old girl living in beautiful Greece and blogging about my looks and travels on http://www.looksandtravels.com .
Q2: At what point did you decide to make a Blog and share it with the world??
I started my blog in 2011 while I was at uni studying Economics. My blog was my hobby, a creative way to spend my free time when not studying. The first 2 years I was blogging about fashion and beauty. In 2013 I got the courage and started posting my own outfits, which is something I’ve been enjoying the most.
Q3: How would you describe your writing style? Has it changed over time at all?
I am not sure if I have a specific writing style. I try to write as if I am talking to a friend. However, what I’ve realized from my 5 years of blogging is that readers don’t spend much time reading a fashion blog, they mostly look the photos.
Q4: Was there anyone in particular who inspired you? Which Bloggers do you emulate?
My favourite blogger is a fashion blogger from Finland http://mariannan.indiedays.com/ I’ve been reading her blog for years and what I like the most about her is that she has remained genuine and authentic all these years. Success hasn’t changed her.
Q5: Do you have anything in the pipeline on the Blog which you are particularly excited about?!
Well, this year 2016, I am doing a Closet Challenge: 1 year without buying clothes. This is very exciting and challenging at the same it. I’m documenting my journey on my blog. You can read more about it here http://www.looksandtravels.com/2016/01/closet-challenge-1-year-without-buying.html …
Q6: Does anyone else know about your Blog? What do they think about it??
My family and my closest friends know about my blog. It takes time to tell someone I have a blog and I only share it with the people I want to. I’ve been lucky enough to have supportive people around me, my sister takes my outfit photos and my friends encourage me to keep blogging and not give up.
Q7: Are you obessed with Lush!?!? If YES what is your favourite product?!
Ok, this will be a shock to many of you but I’ve never bought anything from Lush! I’ve visited the store a few times but didn’t end up buying something. My best friend gifted my some Lush soaps, which smelled divine and I also like their bath bombs.
Q8: Has your Blog helped you in other areas of life?!
Having a blog helped me to learn more about computers, coding, photo editing, social media etc. I would have never known in detail some of these areas if I didn’t have a blog. Moreover, I’ve worked in the fashion industry (clothing company) and I realized that I knew quite a few things because I have a fashion blog. Also, saying that I have a fashion blog is a great answer to the “tell me something interesting about you” question.
Q9: What is it that makes you so fabulous?! Maybe I should ask my friends/family what they find fabulous about me… But if I say so myself, I would choose my generosity. I am a very generous person and I love giving gifts (I prefer giving than receiving actually).
Q10: Finally, can you recommened anything to us today!? (Skincare/Beauty/Tv Show/DVD/Music/Food Item...anything!) I would share with you my favourite foundation. It’s the “Bourjois healthy mix serum”, I’ve been using this for about 3 years and is a really good one! Thank you very much!
So that concludes our 'Meet the Blogger' for today! Thank You so Much for taking the time to answer these questions today, much appreciated!
Please take the time to check out the blog/Twitter/Facebook/Instagram etc, be sure to leave a comment saying you found them via Writing & Rambling! Thank You!!
