Sometimes change is good... So I decided to do something I usually never ever do... Something totally different... I wore sneakers! Yes, I do have one pair actually, this pair of All stars are the only pair of sneakers in my closet.. I last wore them over one year ago, but since I was going for a relaxed laid back look, I thought it was time to give these All Stars a second chance. At first I thought they looked weird on me.. If there's anything I'm not it's a sneaker girl.. But you know what? I don't hate it!
What do you say? Not too bad combined with a dressed down look, right? :p (pictures below Q&A!)
I gave you all the oppertunity to ask me anything you want: so here we go... My answers to some of your questions!
When and why did you start blogging?
I started blogging about 2,5 years ago.. At first it was nothing serious. I started a blog so it became easier to follow other fashion blogs.. Then I started posting some of my own outfits and DIY's and I got my first visitors.. After 1 year of blogging just for fun, I purchased a good camera because I wanted to improve my blog and improve my pictures.. Now I blog because it's what I love to do... I love to write, express my creativity, take photo's and meet other bloggers!
What do you think is the best thing about blogging?
I can't just point out one thing.. What I love is what it has brought me so far! I get to go to fashion events, I meet bloggers and interesting people.. I improved my writing skills and now I write for other fashion sites (check my TSC featured in page).. I developed my own style and I can inspire other fashionista's out there, just as they inspire me with their blogs :)
Do you have those long lashes naturaly? Or do you wear fake lashes? Or is it photoshop?:p
I love this question! It isn't photoshopped ;) I actually have pretty long lashes myself, but somehow I got addicted to wearing false lashes on a daily basis.. I often wear the natural style lashes by Eyelure. They give your lashes length and volume, but not over the top:) Great for everyday use if you ask me!
What was your biggest fashion fail, if you ever had one :p?
I have made plenty of fashion fails.. When I first started blogging I was still figuring out my style.. I don't really like some of those posts when I just started out.. But I never deleted them, because that was what I liked to wear back then.. I had a thing for my DIY bleached jeans, DIY Balmain inspired chain-top and everything with a polka-dot print.. Now I look back and I can't believe I wore that out of the house ;)
What kind of styling products do you use for your hair? And do you style it everyday?
I style my hair every single day, unless I am sure that I don't have to leave the house ;) My bangs are always swoopy and messed up when i wake up so I blow-dry my bangs every morning. I use a heat protection foam by L'oréal, tons, and I mean tons of hairspray to keep my bangs exactly in place: L'oréal Elnett. And I recently discovered the best product I have ever used: BioSilk Therapy! It's pure liquid silk and it repairs your hair, my dead ends seem completely repaired.. And it gives a great shine and incredibly smooth feeling...♥
Have u ever been recognized because of your blog ?
I got recognized a few times, mainly on fashion events where lots of fashionbloggers are invited.
It's fun when somebody recognizes me from my blog, but it's also a little weird when somebody that i probably don't know says 'hey, aren't you Malu from The Stylish Confessions blog??' I take it as a huge compliment of course!
Do you get to go to fashion events??
Ever since I went to my first fashion event and gave out lots of business cards, I get invited for fashion events, store openings and parties on a regular basis.. I wish I could come to every single event so I can meet other bloggers and socialize.. But I sometimes don't have time during the week because of school / internship. I try to take up all the invites though :)
