How would you describe your personal style?
I don’t think my style has a specific name, it’s more of mixture of the 90s culture, vintage French style and some of my personal ideas. Usually I just like to blend classics with sports stuff.
Who is your favorite brand/designer? Do you own any of their designs?
I appreciate both major brands and famous couturiers as well as independent labels and young designers. One of my favourites is my hometown-based brand called QooQoo. I also like AllSaints and Nolo. I own a lot of their design.
What are your top three tips for looking “put together” in a hurry?
If you have no time to experiment just go with mono colored clothes, you can just add one extra color for accent.
Nude makeup might be a good idea.
Try looking at your boyfriends shelves – you might find some cool oversized pieces to add to your look.
What beauty products can’t you live without?
Juicy Shaker by LANCOME, Gimme brow volumizing gel by eyebrow gel.
How do you stay up to date with the latest fashion and beauty trends?
Mostly by just using Instagram, sometimes I browse vogue.com.

What’s your favorite fashionable movie?
Devil Wears Prada! I can watch it hundreds of times.
If you could offer some words of encouragement to a newbie or frustrated fashion blogger/influencer, what would they be?
Try putting your heart and soul in what you do – your blog has to be full of life.

Walking the streets of Riga, drinking coffee, and looking for inspiration!
