What sparked your interest in Fashion?
I always loved to express myself through fashion since I was child, still remember my favourite hot pink fake fur coat when I was around 4-5 years old. Now that I’m 30 I understand how beautiful it is to create your own style freely.
When did you first start Instagramming? Did anyone or anything inspire you?
I started my blog many years ago, Instagram wasn’t a big thing back then and I started working really hard on my account around 2016/2017. I always feel so inspired by @Luanna and I’m so happy I created my own style taking inspiration from many amazing girls on Instagram.
What do you love the most about being an influencer?
I love being in contact with many people around the world and work with so many amazing brands, I feel very lucky that so many people support me and my work.
How many hours do you dedicate to social media each week?
Too many hours every day haha! But I consider it a work so it’s kinda understandable.
Do you work/study alongside your social media work? If so, tell us a bit about what you do.
I currently work as a researcher at the University together with my social media work, it’s a really nice and creative work but sometimes it’s really hard to combine everything. I started my social media work when I was still a University student and I know how hard studying and working at the same time can be.
Where do you get your inspiration from?
I get inspiration from everything, books, music, art, other influencers. The world is so beautiful and full of amazing things!
How would you describe your personal style?
It’s really hard for me to describe my style, sometimes I can be more goth and sometimes more cute, but I think the best definition in current fashion is nu goth.
Who are some of your favourite bloggers/Instagrammers?
As I mentioned before I’m a big fan of @Luanna. I also really like @RightMew, @Oliviaemilyx, @Deaddsouls and @Grimvr.
What’s your go-to song/playlist/album at the moment?
I’m listening to a lot of kpop songs lately haha but I’m looking forward to the new work by my favourite band: Katatonia.
What are your goals for 2020?
For this 2020 I really want to do a lot of new amazing projects as an influencer and travel more!
If you could meet anyone, living or dead, who would you choose and why?
I would be really happy to meet and talk with Katatonia band members, maybe one day I’ll realize this little dream!
How many pairs of T.U.K.’s do you own and which ones are your favourite?
I currently own 5 pairs of T.U.K. shoes, they’re all so gorgeous but my favourite model of all times is Nosebleed boots, I’m totally addicted!
What’s your favourite way to style your T.U.K.’s?
I really like to wear my T.U.K. shoes with plaid skirts, it’s my favourite combination so far!
