When did you start blogging, and what was your motivation for getting started?
I have been doing Instagram for a couple of years but started to take it seriously one year ago, when I also started my blog. I have always been into fashion and like to experiment with my style, which I wanted to share with my followers and readers.
What does the term influencer mean to you?
To me, it means that you influent something or someone with what you do – in my case fashion and my style. I hope people become inspired when looking at my profile and feel that like they want to try it out for themselves. I’m doing my best to guide people to do something outside their comfort zone when it comes to fashion – It’s so much more fun.
Who are your biggest influences? Who do you admire most?
I admire Pernille Teisbæk – of course! She always looks great in whatever she’s wearing – even if it’s just a grey knit and jeans. I also really like Emili Sindlev’s style. She’s the best at mixing prints and colours in odd ways, and I always feel inspired when looking at her.
What have been your keys to success?
Hard work sounds so cliché, but it’s the truth. To a lot of people being an influencer seems so easy, but they have no idea how it is on our social media platforms. You have to be online and available 24/7, you have no days off – not in my case, and you have to perform your best, basically all the time. It can be a challenge, but I feel so blessed to work with my hobby! Also – always be kind to whoever you’re talking to. It will always come back to you in a positive way.
What is still your biggest challenge?
It has definitely been to stop worrying about what other people think of me. It can still be a challenge, but it’s getting better, and I’m working on not caring.
What does a typical day in your week look like?
I get up in the morning – drink a coffee right away, I need my coffee in the morning. Then I hit the gym; I like to get it over with, then I have meetings during the day, work on the blog and Instagram, doing pictures, working on new collaborations and so on. No two days are the same, but that’s a good thing for me since I get bored so fast!
What is your favourite social media platform and why?
Definitely Instagram. It’s SO easy, you can do it as you go and it’s a great place to get your daily inspiration fix. My boyfriend would probably say that I spend to much time on Instagram, haha, but don’t we all?
What are your three favourite tools for working your social media?
I don’t really have any tools to make my work on social media easier. I can’t live without my phone. I’m using it to take all my pictures and of course my computer.
How far ahead do you plan your content?
Not that much. Sometimes I know that I would like to post on my blog during the week, but mostly, I just post whatever and whenever I feel like posting. I want to keep it as much down to earth as possible and make it as easy as it can be.
Are you introvert or extrovert?
I’m very extrovert and outgoing. There won’t be any silence in the room if I’m there. I love to talk to new people, be inspired and hear about other jobs in or outside the fashion industry.
Who inspires you, when it comes to fashion?
People who are doing something different and thinks outside the box when it comes to personal style. I get inspired by colours, patterns, print, layering and so on.
What is your best styling tip?
Always choose colour instead of black. It’s not because I don’t like black – I have a lot of black stuff in my wardrobe, but when I’m wearing colours, I have a better day, and you’ll get noticed for just walking down the street or sitting in a restaurant.
What is your closet filled up with?
Flower print, checks, stripes and every colour of the rainbow.
Describe your style
Colourful, fun, playful, experimental – it’s a total circus.
What is your favourite item in your wardrobe?
I have so many favourite items in my wardrobe, but right now it must be my orange pants from my design collaboration with 2nd One. Can’t wait to wear them all summer and style them in different ways.
What will we never see you wearing?
“Never” is not an option for me, but turquoise is a colour I find hard to love, haha. But I said the same thing about purple last year, and now I love it!!
What will your next purchase be?
I’m always looking for a new bag – not that I need it, but a bag is something you wear every day and can use for years. I don’t have my eyes on a specific one at the moment, but Gucci is my favourite, so maybe a new one from the brand.
What is one thing your readers would be surprised to hear about you?
That I love to wear jeans and a simple white or black oversize t-shirt. It’s the most straightforward combination and always looks great, but everyone can pull such a look off, so I need to upgrade it a bit to inspire.
What is your best advice you will pass on to others who want to get in the game?
You need to have a passion for something so you can continue to keep it interesting. Just fashion is not enough – you need to do something different so people will notice you. Be prepared for that it is hard work, and it might take a few years to become an influencer. It doesn’t happen overnight; you need to be patient.
What would you like to achieve within a year?
Be the face of an awesome fashion or make-up campaign and do even more design collaborations.
