Tell us a bit more about yourself. How did you start with your blog?
I am Marija, a 19 year old girl, currently based in Ljubljana, Slovenia, where I study Public Relations on the Faculty of Social Sciences. I have always loved fashion, so back in 2014(at the age of 16) I decided to start my fashion blog Fabulous is freedom. I had no idea what I was doing, I just knew that I needed a creative outlet. With the passion to learn and grow, I would spend hours online, researching html codes and watching videos.
If given the chance, who would you like to work with?
Instagram or Pinterest
100% Instagram. For me every day is a new Insta challenge that begins with finding something instagrammable, editing the photo so it matches my theme, thinking of a catchy caption and on top of that posting some entertaining stories during the day. If a day passes without an insta photo or an insta story, believe me, even my mom is concerned, because she knows something is not right.
My three homes, Debar Maalo in Skopje, Gornji Trg in Ljubljana and Struga.
Things you can’t live without
I admit it, I can’t live without attention. And without my phone. And my Pandora bracelet.
And marsala lipstick.
I guess I can’t live without multiple things, not just one.
Why do you ❤ Bastet Noir?
I love Bastet Noir not only because of the cool name and the great Instagram theme, but because it's a unique shop with pieces that make you stand out in the crowd. And most importantly, because it’s founded by a young woman entrepreneur. The story reminds me of my favorite movie ‘The Intern’ and the moment when Anne Hathaway said “I just knew a woman at the end of the day with a glass of wine and a laptop had real shopping potential”.
Marija is definitely one foxy cool cat and that’s why our entire team is in love with her. If you’ve got the same feels, then follow her journey on Instagram or on her blog, we promise you won’t regret it and we never give promises lightly. Have we ever failed you?
