1.What inspired you to start blogging?
Actually it was a friend’s suggestion to start a blog. One day, I was having coffee with a good friend of mine which I’ve not kept in touch for the longest time. He knew I love fashion and beauty-kind-of-stuff a lot so he suggested why not just keep a log about what I wear and beauty products that I’m using? That’s how Diva In Me started.
2.Who are your style icons?
There are two categories for my style icons. One from the modeling world and the other the street style influencers. From the modeling world, it would be Kate Moss and Alexendra Ambrossio. From street style influencers (usually bloggers), they are Blaire from Atlantic-Pacific, Chiara Ferragni from The Blonde Salad, Aimee Song from Song of Style and Hallie from Hallie Daily. These are the few people I find myself pinning their outfits to my Pinterest board a lot.
3.Do you have a favorite piece in your closet?
This is a challenging question. Everything in my closet is my favorite pick from the many collections out there. LOL! If I’ve to choose only one, it would be my very first Christian Louboutin pumps called Bianca. I definitely find myself wearing this pair of pumps in a lot.
4.What is the trend you are into right now?
Denim. Period. I think I never got out of that trend. Every time when there are some changes in the denim trend. I am such a sucker for it. I wouldn’t miss a chance to get my hands on one. I am recently a proud owner of a very comfortable pair of Current/Elliot boyfriend jeans.
5.What do you like to do for fun?
I love spa! I love how relaxed my body and mind are after a session. Other than that, I enjoy doing nothing, like watching TV and playing some games on my iPad all day.
Last but not least!!
6.If you could give advice to anyone about anything, what would it be?!
Live your life to the fullest. Do not give yourself a chance to look back and say those could-have, would-have and should-have. It’s too late then. Everything has its timing. If it doesn’t happen, it’s just not meant to be and if it does happen, appreciate it.
Tell me something you love about yourself physically and emotionally?
Some time ago, I was studying abroad and I love the food there so much that I gained so much weight. I didn’t feel healthy and I felt bloated all the time. One day, I just decided to get a pair of running shoes and I started exercising every day and I took it a little too seriously. I counted every calorie I consumed and worked out 7 days a week. After a few months, I realized life’s just too short to be this rigid. I start to appreciate every physical part about myself. Yes, I’m not super tall like a model, but I do have long legs which I love. All I need to do is just to maintain a healthy lifestyle which includes working out 3 times a week and eat when I’m hungry. My past had definitely taught me to be smarter with food consumption and discipline when it comes to adopting a healthy lifestyle.
