XOXO

Hello girls,

How have you been? I’ve been enjoying London’s little treasures lately as I feel really festive as Christmas is just around the corner! On this note, I have teamed up with Adriana  to give you some good business and styling advice that you can trust to follow going forward in 2019. Make the most out of it!

Andrada: Hi, Adriana! Thank you for joining me today in this pretty location and thank you for the Salted Caramel Macaron tip – it’s delicious. The reason why I picked you to give us insight into these is because you’re really successful with your own business and breaking it into online courses! First of all, what is your blog about and why did you decide to go into blogging?

Adriana: Since I was a little girl I wanted to be a model however as I didn’t fulfil the necessary conditions I didn’t follow this path. My dreams however stayed in my mind unrealized. Years later I’ve discovered that I can combine my passion for fashion and photography into a fashion & lifestyle blog. Now, I can say that this was the best present I could give to myself. I present a variety of my own fashion style, fashion tips, product reviews, healthy recipes etc. to please my readers.

Andrada: That’s absolutely amazing. Congratulations for following your dream and working towards it no matter what! I feel that women need to motivate themselves and be their biggest supporters, even when no one is! Could you give us one piece of advice for a woman starting her own business now?

Adriana: Thank you, Andrada! You’re right! When you start your own business you fear that no-one would buy anything from you, no-one cares about it, no-one is interested, the competition is high and it’s not worth the hassle but these are only the unnecessary thoughts you say to yourself. Don’t doubt in yourself, just follow your dreams and believe that you’re worth everything but good in your life. We attract what we think of, so stay positive. Always.

Andrada: Who is your role model? What inspires you?

Adriana: It may sound strange but I aim to inspire and motivate myself at all times. I don’t have a role model, I don’t compare myself to others, competitors, top bloggers. I prefer a healthy balance in life, I choose to be me, be positive, unique and true.

Andrada: That’s great! I love how positive you are – I see a great strength in you and I am happy that you’re thinking that way. Talking about fashion now, as we’re going towards the colder season, what items do you recommend women to wear and what are your top 3 items?

Adriana: I cannot imagine cooler season of autumn/winter without a comfortable warm boots, a nice colour coat and accessories that are not to be missed like a wooly hat, scarf and gloves. I always aim to pick a colourful coat and hats as a stylist and a woman I believe we should add more colour into our outfits as it simply improves our mood. My today’s outfit is a great example of this statement. Don’t you agree? You can find me on social media or my blog. Lots of love lovelies and have an amazing festive season!

Andrada: Thank you Adriana for joining me today and I wish you the best of luck with your blogging business! ☺️
