This Really Will Effect Your Life In Some Way – Just A Very Cool Blog

This is probably one of the most beautiful blogs I have come across since I started my fashion blog research many years ago.

FLORAL MOUNTAINS is by a lady called Sarah Thomas she documents her life to put it simply. Her photography is some of the best I have ever seen a blogger produce themselves and her lifestyle is everything I aspire too.

She is from the Midwest and has recently just got married.

Marriage photos for me are never really that inspiring because they are personal to the people getting married however these are the most stunning and moving wedding photographs I have ever come across.

What’s even more lovely the dress Sarah is wearing I was only showing my mother the other week that would be the kind of dress and wedding theme which would be perfection to me.

Her husband is also a photographer and they travel the world together documenting their adventures.

It really is just gorgeous. Talk about life motivation!

This isn’t just a blog for the ladies, men, photographers, stylists, food lovers, travellers and anyone with a love for life should bookmark this blog.

Read it everyday to give you that kick up the bum we all need every now and then!

Interview With Fashion Stylist and Blogger – Jasmine Furelid

This week I was lucky enough to be introduced to one of the most talented Stylists and Bloggers coming out of London in 2014/15, Jasmine Furelid.

I had a chat to find out what makes her tick and how she became successful in a very competitive industry.

What is your job title?

Stylist/Creative/Blogger

How did you start blogging and how did the idea come about?

I’ve always been into fashion and from the age of 14 I started dressing different and customised my clothing. Through the years it just developed even more and I thought I would share it with the world! A lot of people requested hairstyles/makeup and I had a lot of people appreciate my style. From there I invested in a camera and started my own youtube channel.

You are also a stylist? Who have you worked with so far?

I mainly work with music artists, more up and coming ones. I did some assisting for a girlband called M.O.,Vida, Fatima (Eglo Records), Rian Peters and more. I have also done a couple of red carpet events for Preeya Kalidas and Sarah Jane Crawford.

What is the best thing about working in fashion?

The best thing working is fashion is probably working with something I love.

Has the fashion world been close to what you expected or has it turned out to be a lot more different?

Well it is a lot more hard work then I expected to be honest but when you see the result it is all worth it.

What’s your favorite thing so far about blogging?

That I can share my views on fashion and also display my own personal style.

What advice would you give to existing bloggers/people wanting to start blogging?

Do it on a regular basis so not to loose your following, hashtag relevant things and have patience since it can take a long time before you manage to reach out to people.

How has working in fashion changed the way you dress?

No I wouldnt say so. I think its been years to get to were I am today with my style and I am really comfortable. It is just a life process. Fashion effects us without knowing but I dont think working in fashion has changed it, it has always been one of my passions so I just experiment with it really.

How would you describe your personal style?

I always get this question and I never really know how to describe it. It is a mixture of loads of styles (even though people probably just see the urban side of it). I like to mix different eras and mismatch colours. I do love to just wear all black sometimes though. To be honest it varies with my mood but I usually have one element of streetwear in there, mix it up with pinup and also high end.

Best of everything!

How did you become a stylist?

I decided one day I wanted to do it and I pursued my dreams. My styling, hair and makeup skills are all self taught.

What advice would you give to anyone wanting to start out in the industry?

Be passionate, persistent, patient and be willing to work your butt off!

What are your top fashion events?

To be honest with you I rarely go to them.

What are your top online blogs?

I usually go to Style.com or Vogue to keep up with the latest trends even though I rarely follow them myself.

Top menswear designers? Top womens designers?

I’m not really into designers to be honest. I mainly do vintage shopping and I’m more about putting things together then wearing a design piece. I do like Astrid Andersen designs and a cool designer Laurel Dewitt. I’m more about the visuals then the actual name.

When I’m in my hometown I love hanging out at…

Sweden and Stockholm is quite boring but I do love to hang out and eat at East in the summertime. I also wonder around on Sodermalm my favourite area in Stockholm.

What’s your favourite fashion city?

I think I have to say London but I havent been around that much. The fashion in London is just really diverse and its so multicultural.

On my iPod right now is…

Spooky Black, Fatima, Seinabo & Kwabs

In five years I’d like to…

Have a stable career, family and be happy.

Finally whats in store for you and your style in 2014/15…

Right now I am building myself as a brand, JFStylissimo. With that comes my styling and my creative side which includes blogging, tutorials and such. I want to push that even more now and I also attended a reality TV Designer competition that hopefully will be released this year. And some fashion designs are in process.

So watch this space! :)

Interview with the twins from Twice Blessed Bloggers

The Olsen Twins, Dean and Dan Caten and now Bec and Marrissa. The world has some very talented twins within the fashion industry and I was lucky enough to catch up with the girls who own and write TWICEBLESSEDBLOGGERS blog this weekend to find out what it’s like being a twin in a very self expressive and unique business and their opinion on blogging life.

What are your job titles?

Bec – Creative Director/Communications Manager

Marissa - Creative Director/Operations & Communications Manager

How did the two of you start blogging together and how did the idea come about?

Bec- We’ve always been very close in our relationships and fashion sense. Fashion was just an outward extension of our personalities and it was only fitting to start blogging together too.

Marissa – Being identical twins the idea of doing something together came quite naturally. It was actually our dad who suggested us doing something about our “fashion sense”, so we really developed the idea from there.

Does this mean you do everything together?

Bec- More or less. We’re very similar in our personalities likes, dislikes and our personal aesthetic. Now that Marissa is in London, we have to deal with the fact that we can’t do everything together forever.

Marissa- In theory, yes. We studied the same degree together, worked in the same retail stores (purely by coincidence) and really are best friends. However now that I’m in London we’re finally apart. It definitely has been a challenging experience so far not having Bec by my side!

What are your roles within the team? Who is responsible for what?

Bec- My role is purely communications and everything social media. I run our Instagram account @twiceblessed_ and manage the majority of our email communications.

Marissa- It has recently changed now that I’m living in the UK. When we were together I would manage stock inventory and organised photoshoots as well as run our website (www.twiceblessedbloggers.com.au). However now I am also involved with networking and communications with all UK press and brand enquiries.

What is the best thing about working in fashion?

Bec- Being apart of one of the best industries in the world. Fashion can take you anywhere and everywhere.

Marissa- Being involved in something that is always changing, growing and re-inventing itself is very interesting. I love being able to see what new collections brands bring out, their choice of patterns, colours and materials. It’s very exciting.

Has the fashion world been close to what you expected or has it turned out to be a lot more different?

Bec- It’s actually not as cut-throat as I first thought. Obviously you get people and bloggers who want to be the best of the best and will compete but the rest of us are fairly down-to-earth and humble.

Marissa- For me, it’s pretty similar to what I had imagined. I never thought it would be like ‘The Devil wears Prada’, but am fully aware that when Fashion Week or any other important event rolls up it is crazy busy.

What’s your favorite thing so far about blogging?

Bec- Like Marissa it’s the clothes.. and the shoes and the bags and being able to play with a massive wardrobe. We’re very lucky.

Marissa- To be honest the clothes. I love clothing (and shoes and accessories and everything else) too much. So my wardrobe is quite full now.

What advice would you give to existing bloggers/people wanting to start blogging?

Bec- Create your own identity. Be true to who you are and embody that in everything you do, that way you will gain loyal followers who are interested in what you do and the pictures you take.

Marissa- Pick a style and stick with it. There is nothing worse than seeing an Instagram feed or blog feed that doesn’t have any common theme or story running through it to make it look cohesive. Do some research into other bloggers styles you like and mould your style around that.

How has working in fashion changed the way you dress?

Bec- It hasn’t much. My style is constantly changing and adapting however the core of my fashion sense is always the same- monochrome! haha

Marissa- It hasn’t really changed what I wear but more how I wear it. I’m a little more experimental in terms of styling pieces and I’m definitely able to utilise my clothing items better than I did before.

How would you describe your personal style?

Bec- Monochrome (where possible) however I do love a good print! Oh and a pop of red lipstick!

Marissa- Ever changing however I generally keep to a simplistic shape and colour palette. Black, white, grey and fun prints are generally what I stay close to. I love the look of wearing something oversized with something very tailored and form-fitting. A little bit of contrast you may say!

What are your top fashion events?

Bec- Anything Fashion Week!

Marissa- Soon to be London Fashion Week in September! Wooo.

What are your top online blogs?

Bec- Snob Fashion Blog and Harper & Harley.

Marissa- I honestly don’t do much consistent reading in terms of blogs. I always love checking out Harper and Harley’s blog. She is an amazing stylist and is so beautiful.

Top menswear designers?

Bec- Ralph Lauren- purely because my boyfriend looks amazing in anything from there!

Marissa- Jack London. A man in a tailored suit ….. wow

Top womens designers?

Bec- Cameo the Label, Dion Lee, Nicholas the Label, Jaggar.

Marissa- All Saints, Jagger the Label, Acne and COS.

When I’m in my hometown I love hanging out at…

Bec- Home (like Marissa). Being comfy on the couch with a good movie & doona! (we’re definitely closet dorks & nannas! haha)

Marissa- Home! Being away makes me miss my bed, haha.

What’s your favorite fashion city?

Bec- I’m not going to toot my own horn but I think Melbourne takes the cake so far.

Marissa- I’ve done a bit of travelling but living in London does make me partial to say London. So, London!

On my iPod right now is…

Bec- Chet Faker, Disclosure and Route 94.

Marissa- A lot of Chris Brown & Trey Songs

In five years I’d like to…

Bec- Married with children! Woo

Marissa- Be married and running Twice Blessed as a successful business!

Finally whats in store for you both and your style in 2014/15

To be completely honest, we’re not even sure! We just roll with the punches and take each day as it comes. Blogging for us is our hobby and we absolutely love it, so we will just adapt with what comes.
