Kat and I came up with the idea of giving other national and international fashion and lifestyle blogger (independent from reach/style!) the opportunity to get featured on our blog. We only had a single requierment to this blogs: Quality! They should offer their readers a great combination of qualitative pictur-
es and great content and believe us we've got contacted by a lot of great blogger so we can't wait to share their blogs with you. If you're also interested in getting featured at 'Heart and Soul for Fashion', please leave us a comment down below (including your blog URL and a contact adresse)! Today we're going to start with Matti from the blog Tache de Beauté. So we hope that you're going to like our new column and the interview with her:
Please introduce yourself and your blog:
I’m a almost 18 year old girl living near Brussels, Belgium. I’m a blogger (but you’ll read more about that below). I adore asian food, tea, advocado and macarons. You can always make me happy with some good rock music and old school hiphop. music. Some people say I’m a shopaholic, but I don’t believe them.
What was the deciding reason for you to start a fashion and lifestyle blog?
All my life I've been intrigued with clothing and beauty. When my mom used to put on her make-up and do her hair, I looked up and wanted to look like her. And also I have a ton of clothes and didn't know what to do with them, so I decided to write about them ,share it with the world and inspire others.
What would you like to achieve with your blog (like within the next five years)?
I don’t really have a ‘final destination’. I simply want my blog to grow, I want to meet new people, I want to do as many collabs as possible and I want to become a fashion icon. But most of all, I want to enjoy life the fullest and make a living out of the things I love doing.
Do you have a role model? What do you especially like about her/him?
Negin Mirsalehi. What inspires me the most about her is first of all her style and the collabs she does and most of all she has the opportunity to make a living with what she does and likes to do. She’s also a real traveller and because of her blog she can travel the world, how awesome is that ?!
Tell us a bit about your life besides blogging (like hobbies).
I like to travel. I'm kind of a jet setter. I'm obsessed with a healthy lifestyle and working out a lot. I’m also a photographer, so I love to combine my blog with some photography-work. And then there is the passion for music, which is huge to be honest. I’m a singer and I’ve already been following lessons for 10 years.
Your favourite trend/trend piece for 2016?
I'm really into the make-up trend of strobing and the current hair trend of the 60's bob. Talking about clothes, I never thought I would say this, but I’m a real fan of the black wide-leg trousers. What I also like to wear, are the off shoulder sweaters, tops and dresses.
Which five pieces are a MUST-HAVE in your closet?
Black hat, black fringe leather jacket, studded biker boots, boyfriend jeans and of course a turtle neck. (winter). My little blue dress, my short jeans dungaree, my sunnies of gucci, long dress and espadrilles (summer).
Tell us your personal fashion-faux pas or your fashion no-go!
TOO oversized on TOO oversized is a no go & Too much colors and prints combined.
What do you think about the progress of the national/international blogger scene?
I think the influence of blogger is little by little becoming important. Blogs are the new magazines.
Last but not least: Do you have any advice or tips for blogger newbies?Be yourself and don't accept every collab they offer to you. Be true to your style and don’t go with the mainstream.
Kat und ich haben uns überlegt, dass wir anderen nationalen und internationalen Fashion- und Lifestyle-Bloggern gerne die Möglichkeit geben würden, auf 'Heart and Soul for Fashion' gefeatured zu werden. Die Reichweite oder der Stil ist für uns dabei unrelevant, denn es gibt lediglich eine Voraussetzung nach der wir die Blogs auswählen: Qualität! Die Blogger sollten ihren Lesern eine gute Kombination aus qualitativen Bildern und tollen Inhalten bieten können. Glücklicherweise haben sich viele Blogger bei uns gemeldet und dementsprechend freunden wir uns, dass wir euch in den kommenden Monaten vielen Blogs in dieser Rubrik vorstellen könnnen. Heute starten wir mit Matti von Tache de Beauté. Das entsprechende Interview findet Ihr oben im englischsprachigen Abschnitt. Wir hoffen sehr, dass euch unsere neue Rubrik und das entsprechende Interview gefällt. Falls ihr selber gerne mit euerem Blog auf 'Heart and Soul for Fashion' gezeigt werden wollt, dann hinterlasst uns doch einfach einen entsprechenden Kommentar (inklusive Blog URL und Kontaktadresse!).
