The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

 First words that come to mind; Success, Progress. Because passion really is all you need in life to succeed, if you have this passion for something you’ll go to the ends of the earth , you’ll give it your all, you’ll succeed.

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

 I am a really happy individual who Is very acquainted with success, I love to succeed, I love to see people succeed; I love to help people succeed. I think success is beautiful :)

Why do you do what you do?

 The reason I started blogging was because of my love for clothes then with time it grew into what it is now :)

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

 Not a lot of things actually, I used to take lots and lots of pictures of outfits I had , and I got a wordpress account and started talking about them lol! Like literally :)

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

 Nothing really, If I had to overcome something and I did, it probably didn’t make that much of an impact :)

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

 I don’t think I remember anyone or anything that inspired me, I’ll just say my love for clothes .

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

 To be honest, you can’t really make mistakes in this journey I’m on… It’s just been blog and go lol

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

 Umm, well, the Kaleidoscopian is still going to be the Kaleidoscopian, I might be adding a few more categories, I normally blog about designers based in Canada, but now it’s going to be worldwide J And also in the nearest future  I will be working alongside an upcoming fashion designer here in Canada :)

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

 Whenever you’re going through a lot, pray about it, have faith and smile, because after the storm cometh sunshine :)

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)
