The questions we got where:
- 1. Why did you start blogging?
Berry: I started blogging because I realized I had a ton of information I wanted to share, but didn’t have the place to share them or people to share them with. And I was on the lookout for medium where I could express myself through fashion and writing. And that’s when I discovered the blogging world.
Niina: I started blogging because of my friend Berry after seeing how much she enjoyed expressing herself trough blogging while sharing what she knew about fashion with her readers. It made me think hey… Why not give it a try and see how it goes?? and I must say I really enjoyed it even though I may not know allot about fashion I do love to share with others what I do know, and the comments that I get back keeps me motivated.
- 2. Who is your favorite blogger?
Berry: my favorite bloggers of all time are KTRstyle.com meek-n-mild.com momentsofstyle.com glamurousgia.com these are the main bloggers who inspired me to start blogging.
Niina: Right now it’s Shirley B. Eniang From meek-n-mild.com and Ashley TheHappyHairShow.com
- 3. What do you enjoy most about blogging?
Berry: what I enjoy most is being able to connect with other people who share the same passion as you do. It’s extremely liberating.
Niina: What I enjoy the most about blogging is that I can express myself trough it, sharing my opinions about a trend, products and giving tips about something fashion or beauty related that might help some of my readers.
- 4. Do you follow fashion trends? And if so, what is your favorite trend at the moment?
Berry:well to be honest I read about allot of fashion trends but I don’t really follow great deal of them. I am currently really loving monochrome and black’n’white trends.
Niina: Sadly…. No I don’t really follow trends. Why?? Because not everything that’s in style or a “trend” Looks great on everybody. What I am really digging right now is the Body con, Peplum Dresses and the Jeffrey Campbell Litas.
