Michael knows Spain so well, even speaks great Spanish, when he was younger, he used to travel a lot to Spain. I dream and plan always one day to visit some beautiful cities in Spain, such as Barcelona, Madrid. Actually we were in Spain two time, such long time ago, and the time even I did enjoy the weather, wind and people there. It is always interesting to travel or visit different countries, you definitely realize that how people are different around the world. Same as blogging, because of blogging, I have chances to know other cultures, people, and have fun with them. Last Friday, by Stylight‘s Spain launch party, I got another chance to meet international Spanish bloggers. Such as Cup Of Couple, LovelyPepa and Amlul.
These three blogs I have follow for a long time, especially Cup Of Couple. Their videos always give me much pretty inspirations. The way how they run the camera, the music and the ideas around. I have to admit, because their videos, I have started also filming by my own. We had a very short time to talk, could not even talk, due to the very noisy music in the Pub. However, meeting them is a great cheer-up for me, to work forward for my blog.
I also had a chance to talk to Alexandra and had a small interview with her. She is a girl that you can’t see her tough side from her sweet smile. Here are some Q & A from last Friday night.
Q : How you started your blog?
A : I have started my blog 4 years ago. Actually before my blogging, I am always interesting to share my daily looks or my life details to social media. That time, blogging has just started. Rumi Neely was the first fashion blogger who inspired me and caused me to also created my own blog. I majored in law, I thought it might be a good decision for me, but I was totally wrong. After one year in the university, I felt so wrong. However I decided to finish my study. During the time, my blog has came out. I invest my energy and enthusiasm to it, what I wasn’t satisfed from my school, I found it back from my blog. I do believe that we can change our luck, to do things we like and then work for it.
Q : How you work for your blog to make it professional?
A : From the very beginning I wrote posts for Fashion Salad, which is a blogger community. It was a good experience to work with them; however, I would like to work for my own, to decide what I want to write, and to show to my readers. Last year, finally I changed to my own domain - www.lovely-pepa.com, it is a good step for myself. Now I have someone to manage my opportunities to cooperate with brands or designers. I am happy with it now.
Q : Do you still remember one of the happiest experiences of blogging?
A : Yes, I will always remember it. After almost one and half year of blogging, I got a mail which asked me to promote their production. Some days later, I got a package, it was so unbelievable to be real. The day was like X’mas to me. Even my mother was so happy for me. The brand has a special point, when they send the packages, it has always a special fragrance with it. Now each time when I close my eyes, I can smell it. It was also the point that I decided to run my blog seriously as a business.
Q : Now you also design shoes, that’s amazing. Would you like to talk about it?
A : When Krack asked me to cooperate with them and design shoes, it was more than happy to describe. I am not good at drawing, however I know what I like to wear, and I got tone of ideas to develop. The people from Krack help me a lot to draw from my ideas. Then it is my third season of shoe collections. It is really amazing.
We would like to talk more, however the time was so tiny. Alexandra gave me a strong impression that she is really a tough girl. She is lovely and happy with what she is doing. What’s important, she was not afraid to change her direction of her life again from Law to Fashion Industry. Thank you, Alexandra for this small talk.
I also met ALix from Blog-Amm and her friend. Some images are helped by them.
