#113 : MAKR & MUSE

Karina from MAKR & MUSE : " Well I am 20 years old from and still living in Montreal.  I am currently studying fashion marketing and I hope to one day become a photo director.  "      

Have you got any beauty, makeup and hair tips and stylish secrets?
If anyone has any tricks for me, I'll gladly take them.  My hair is a constant battle and make up takes too long to put on.  And as for stylish secret, I think that depends on how you rock your outfits.  Stylish is relative to everyone I think. 

What inspired you to start your own blog?
At first I started to blog because I wanted to share inspiring images and magazine spreads that I appreciated to others.  Later, Karel, my boyfriend suggest I create a more personal blog with photos by me.  I also followed many fashion blogs and saw all the opportunities they were being offered and decided I should give it a shot.

What's on your iPod / DVD Player at the moment?
A lot of rock and roll like Led Zep, Rolling Stones, Mark Ronson & the business intl., The XX, Band of Skulls, White Stripes, Mother Mother, The Kills, Strange boys, The Black Lips, The Black Keys, White Stripes... Stuff like that.  And some dubstep! 

What are your dreams and aspirations?
Eventually, I wish to live in Spain and work as a photo director for a magazine. I wish I would be the one managing the blog for The Kooples.

What do you take with you on vacation?
An open mind.

Which designers and/or celebrities most inspire you?
