Five Six with Heels: Interview

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

My Nonni {grandparents}. They are the strongest people I know who continue to inspire me to be the best I can be each and every day. The love they have for the family they’ve created is simply beautiful.

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

Not quite type A, not quite type B but a perfect hybrid.

Why do you do what you do?

I started my site because I always wanted to be a part of the fashion industry while pursuing further education in other industries.

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

I knew I wanted to blog when I was finishing my last year at business school and was about to enter into the big girl working world. I decided to start my blog so I could always stay close to my love for travel and style.

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

Staying focused on why I’m doing this. I’m constantly reminding myself that I started my blog for no one buy myself. I always have to stay true to myself and show the real me, not what I think others will like.

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

My cousin. She has been my number one inspiration. She’s such a joy to be around and is always encouraging me to create my own vibes.

 

Whenever I receive messages from my followers, I feel like I’ve inspired them. Sometimes it’s as simple as trying out a new look, but it makes me happy to know I’ve been an inspiration to at least one person.

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

Loosing self-confidence. Sometimes I let the voices in my head deter me. I’ve learned to not hesitate just because I’m worried about what others will say. As long as I stay true to myself and smile, I’ll be okay.

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

I would love to collaborate with Club Monaco one day! Other than that, just keep swimming.

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

Find your own flow. Do what makes you happy and the rest will follow.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

Don’t take life too seriously. Eat well, travel often and love fully.
