Just make sure you clean your face every night and eat food that's good for you. Also drinking a lot of water is good for you skin.

2.When did you first fall in love with fashion ?
 I think fashion has in some way always been there for me. Already as a child I wanted to decide myself about what I wear. But just a couple of years ago that I started to read fashion blogs, I fell for fashion even more. Now I think there's no way back to normal.

3.What inspired you to start your own blog?
I had read other blogs and liked the idea of sharing inspiration and ideas with others. I just wanted to know how would it be like to have an own blog and that's how it all started.

4.What's on your iPod / DVD Player at the moment?
 I love indie pop and rock so that's what I listen to at the moment. But when it comes to music, I'm quite open-minded and actually I listen to various kinds of music. I love movies that are visually really beautiful so that's why I'm deeply in love with Sofia Coppola's movies. Apart from them my other favorites are for example  Black Swan, 500 days of summer, Alfie and Factory girl.

5.What are your dreams and aspirations? 
I dream to live abroad someday. I also dream to work among fashion or architecture.

6.What do you take with you on vacation?

Acne, Alexa Chung, Mary-Kate Olsen, Kate Moss, Alexander Wang, Kate Bosworth, Erin Wasson, Miu Miu, Jil Sander just to name a few.

This is a tricky one. I think it must be either my black leather shorts or a white sleeveless shirt. They're just pieces of clothes that I can wear time after time.

9. 5 random facts about yourself.
