What are your stats? (name,location, age, height, weight)

My name is Sammie and I was born and raised in the only Grand-Duchy in the world : Luxembourg.I’m 27 and my birthday is on 20/04/1988. I’m around 165cm and my current weight is 57kg

Why & when did you start your blog?

I started my blog back in 2011 when I was in my first year at Luxembourg University. I remember that, during a very long and boring lesson, I browsed the internet and suddenly came across fashion-blogs and the first one I discovered was no other than Theblondesalad. After mulling through her site for hours, I was completely hooked and it felt like a whole new world just opened it’s doors to me.

Even if, by then, I didn’t know a thing about blogging, I had this sudden desire to also share all this stuff that’s been going through my mind in my own place. It all seemed so exciting and fun, like an adventure in between life and it still is.

Who takes your pictures and what camera do you use?

My very patient boyfriend or my, sometimes lovely, sometimes a pain in the ass little sister take my images and I return the favor by shooting photos for her fitness-blog (www.lifting-fairy.com) or by helping my boyfriend brainstorm for his new projects. I currently use a Canon Eos600D with the 50mm 1.4 and as of now the Olympus Pen E-LP7 with the 45mm when I’m on the road.

Where does your inspiration come from?

My style has evolved a lot over the past years and even if I love going back to my all time basics, I adore approaching new trends and reinventing myself. I’ve become even more daring to experiment with different fabrics and pieces now that I lost more than 22 pounds, got in shape again and feel more confident in my skin. But more on that soon.

I take a huge amount of inspiration from other bloggers that I follow accurately, but platforms such as Instagram and Pinterest are a wonderful source of inspiration for me as well.
