"Hi, I'm Mona from Mona is a Pirate (http://monaisapirate.blogspot.com), I'm 20 and I'm a medical student."

Have you got any beauty, makeup and hair tips and stylish secrets?
I'm really bad with my make up & my hair! Trying to get better though. The last thing I discovered was the Primer Potion from Urban Decay. It changed my eye-make up!

When did you first fall in love with fashion ?
When I saw Liv Tyler in Empire Records, I was in love with her 90's look.

What inspired you to start your own blog?
I wanted to share my fashion finds.

What's on your iPod / DVD Player at the moment?
I listen to the Drums and the Smiths all day long. Seriously.
I have a lot of DVD to watch. Hitchcock, Lars Von Trier and Godard mostly.

What are your dreams and aspirations?
I wanna become a doctor, a great one. With great clothes haha!

What do you take with you on vacation?
Tons of books, tons of clothes, running shoes (even if I won't use them), my macbook, my camera, cards (to play poker of course!),... Well I take too many things.

Which designers and/or celebrities most inspire you?
For the designers, it would be Maison Martin Margiela, Alexander McQueen, Balmain, Burberry, Alexander Wang, Acne & Chanel.
The celebrities? Hard to say. Kate Moss without a doubt, Freja Beha Erichsen too, and of course Brigitte Bardot.

My black Chelsea boots!

5 random facts about yourself. 
I play violin, I have blue & grey crystals in my eyes (weird but pretty), I can't say "squirrel" and I want to be a forensic since I was 10.
