Interview with Maja Ravn

Recently Iinterviewed the lovely blogger, Maja Ravn from Copenhagen. The 15 year old has some one of the best blogs and style I have ever seen!
  • What inspired you to start your blog?
It’s hard to say but at the time I started my blog, I’d been reading other blogs and thought I could give something too. So I started it when I was… 13 years? It seems like decades ago and my style was so much different back then. It’s really fun to look back at and see how much I’ve changed.

  • Are you surprised my the success of your blog?
Very! I never thought it would get this big. I am so grateful for it to be where it is now! I praise each and everyone of my followers. Without them, the blog would be nothing. I receive such amazing feedback on the whole thing and it makes me so happy.

  • How would you describe your style?
That’s a thought one! I think I’ll say simple, classic, basic with a twist. I wear a lot of layers and I love mixing materials. The biggest quest for me is to 

  • What is your favourite item in your wardrobe at the moment?
Right now it must be a pair of black Acne jeans. I use them so much and they just fit perfectly. Besides them I’d say my classic Chanel bag. It goes with everything, really! Such a classic designer piece immediately spices up even the most basic of outfits!

  • What are you predicting to be in fashion this season?
I’m really bad at trend kind of things. I usually just wear whatever I want - of course affected by trends, because we all are. Trends I like right now are the really, really minimalistic items and fur with knits. Well, that didn’t really answer your question, but…
  • What has been the best experience that has come from your blog?
There’s been so many! Fashionweek, blogger events, being in Stockholm Streetstyle, meeting readers in real life etc. A lot of great moments I’ll never forget, and I can’t chose just one!

  • Where do you get your inspiration for your outfits from?
Many different places - many of my friends have great style. Also girls on the streets of Copenhagen have great style - that’s a really big source f inspiration to me. Blogs and fashion magazines inspire me as well as films and music videos. 

  • Who are your favourite designers?
I would say Acne as the rest of Copenhagen’s teenage girls! Also I love Karl Lagerfeld for his classic silhouettes and becoming cuts!

  • Do you have an advice for any budding fashionistas or bloggers?
Be yourself! Don’t just mechanically follow the hipster idea of a perfect blogger. Do things as
you want to and don’t be afraid to be different and stand out a little. And give yourself time! Your blog will not become big in two days - it takes time! And hey, enjoy the ride, it’s fun!

Favourite Quote ❤

"We’re so arrogant, aren’t we? So afraid to age we do everything we can to prevent it. We don’t realize what a privilege it is to grow old with someone, someone who doesn’t drive you to commit murder, who doesn’t humiliate you beyond repair…that’s sweet" - P.S. I Love You

Interview with Laura Hayden

I recently interviewed the beautiful, internationally ranked model, Laura Hayden! Laura is recognised worldwide as being a trendsetter with wonderful style. Here is the interview -

How did you get into the modeling industry?
When and why did you begin modeling? It happened accidentally! I’d loved fashion since I was a kid, but didn’t really consider working in fashion as an option until I was scouted. I’d just turned 15. I was at a Sunday family lunch at one of our favorite restaurants in Barcelona when Ilenia (who’d’ later turn into my first booker) handed me her card and asked me to give them a call. I realized modeling would be the perfect way of getting a good insight into the fashion industry whilst I was still at school.

How would you describe your style?
I love to combine black leather, boots & studs with slightly more feminine shirts, skirts & accessories.

What has been your favorite modeling experience so far?
I think you learn something from every shoot. Every shoot is special for one reason or another; or gives you something to remember from them. If I had to chose, I guess my favorite moment was the first time I modeled. It was an editorial shoot for a Spanish magazine. I don’t think I’ll ever forget what I felt when I was standing in front of the camera. You disconnect from the world for a bit…you get to reflect a bit on yourself.The fact that it is just you & the camera, allows you to spend a bit of time with yourself- where you can’t escape from yourself or distract yourself from a bit of reflection- because you are at work. I don’t really know how to describe it. I find that I can go to a photo shoot after having a bad day, and I’ll leave the shoot feeling happy, & much better. You have time to think about your life & problems, and figure out ways to sort it/them out…or realize they aren’t as bad as you thought. What is your most worn outfit in your wardrobe at the moment? My black American Apparel skirt combined with any black jumper/top/shirt I can find. I didn’t really like skirts until I found this one. Now it is like I am making up for lost time- I wear it ALL the time!

What inspired you to start your lovely blog?
I started it in 2009 with lovely model Heather Burton, in Tokyo. All we wanted to do was show our friends and family what we were up to in Japan. The blog began getting attention in Japan, Los Angeles (where Heather is from) and Spain. When I left Tokyo, I decided I would continue the blog and keep it as a sort of “diary”- where I could post videos & pictures, and write about hat I was doing. It was also my way of making fashion & models a bit more approachable…and a bit less scary.

What is your number one beauty or style tip?
Never traveling with any make-up on: on trains, cars, boats or airplanes. It is an unnecessary damage to your skin. I never wear any make-up when I travel, only moisturizer. Something I decided to try out very recently was tinted moisturizer: my skin has improved & I no longer wear foundation- it has become my new favorite thing.

Do you have any advice for budding models?
I’m only I know that there is still a lot for me to learn. What I have learned is that if you like fashion- modeling is the perfect chance to learn when you are still too young to work. Try and observe and take in as much as possible during shoots & shows…you never know when you may need it!
