Chloe from Chloe's Addiction : "I’m a full time actuarial analyst and fashion blogger from Australia. My dream ever since middle school is to be a fashion designer/stylist.My style is usually inspired by current trend and other bloggers. Sometimes I just grab some clothes and accessories and put it on and see whether it works :)"
Have you got any beauty, makeup and hair tips and stylish secrets?
I eat really healthy, no fried food/ greasy food and drink more than 2 litres of water per day. My makeup is pretty simple, I put on espresso gel eyeliner from Bobbi Brown with some neutral eye shadows. I don’t do anything special to my hair other than curling them (without heat protectant :D).
When did you first fall in love with fashion ?
According to my mom, ever since I was young I get grumpy when my mom dressed me up. She always had to let me decide my outfits on my own and I always love to wear dresses lol. I guess it was in middle school where I really fell in love with fashion due to exposure from fashion magazines and the Internet.
What inspired you to start your own blog?
Other readers/contributors on Chictopia! I started posting my outfits in Chictopia about 3 months ago and over time readers would encourage me to start my own blog. I never felt confident starting my own blog as I wasn’t sure if people would enjoy reading it, but I decided to give it a shot when I got my Style Icon badge.
What's on your iPod / DVD Player at the moment?
I’m easy with music and my playlist is usually filled with current chart toppers. Besides music, I’d be spending my free time watching my favourite TV shows like Gossip Girl, Vampire Diaries, and Masterchef Australia (I enjoy cooking and eating good food too!)
What are your dreams and aspirations?
My dream is to become a fashion designer and stylist. I would really enjoy styling people if I get a chance to do that. I also enjoy travelling and would love to experience living in fashion capitals of the world such as Italy or New York.
What do you take with you on vacation?
I would take all my beauty products and camera of course :) I always bring my heels and lots of clothes and will always regret it later because I’ll buy too much and my baggage goes overweight.

Alexander Wang and Alexander McQueen are ones that top my list at the moment.
