The Curly Craze was ask 10 questions, she has answered them very precise and clear. Below are the questions and answers. I really enjoyed reading her answers. I have learnt some new tips, I hope you lovelies learn something new from this too.
1. Tell us about your Fashion/Style career and how it all started?
When I was Eleven, my mum will always share magazines with me, and ask me to style my own outfits, she always believed that I had a hidden talent. Growing up watching style tv shows, and reading style magazines made me feel like I belong to this huge industry, but ofcourse back then , the only way I could express myself was by shopping & styling myself.
I found my identity, I knew what I love and what suits me, but I wanted to share it with other girls, I wanted my journey to be an inspiration, I wanted girls to have their identity as well. So, I started helping girls , give them style tips and empower them with inspirational stories. Thanks to the digital world (sometimes),as I can share my passion, inspire and express my self, with visuals and content. Blog is a Personal Magazine, that what I believe.
2. When was the 1st time you realised you had no limitations to pursue your dream?
I have always believed that nothing can/will stop me from dreaming, but dreaming is one thing, and achieving it is another. The day that I was told that I wont be able to make it, and that the blog is silly, it all calls for failure, bla bla, etc.. was the day I realized that I should stand tall, move forward and achieve my goals. So much passion in me .Nothing can stop me!
3. Tell us more about why you decided to call your brand ‘The Curly Craze’?
I believe that your brand/style is your identity. Choosing a name for my blog was fun, as I was trying to figure out “who I am?”. I grew up distinguished because of my curly hair, at some point in life my name was “the curly head” , so I knew it, that’s what makes me different. As for “craze” its a trend that changes constantly, and that’s how trends are nowadays, always changing! So I said why not.. plus it sounds nice.. the curly craze.
4. You do a lot of Styling and fashion work which you are mostly admired for, What inspires that?
That’s a very interesting question. Inspiration is found everywhere,on the Runways, Street style, Magazine, Movies… anything! But as for me , Magazine & Blogs has always been my main inspiration. (I collect magazines since 2010 , a habit I got from my mum btw)
5. What are some of the obstacles you’ve faced and how have you over come them?
As easy it may seem, having a style blog can be really hectic. Some of the obstacles when I started was that I was a bit lost, didn’t know much about my niche, didn’t know my target audience, gaining and losing followers made me feel a bit down, no engagement.
With time, I gave up on the “followers” thing, I didn’t care how much I have, as long as most of my followers are super active, always interacting ,that’s what I knew matters the most. I started paying attention to whatever I write, always trying to make my followers feel something, experience something, and express their thoughts about my style or anything I post.
6. What have your learnt so far?
Every path you take in life makes you learn something new, and that’s what I’m always up to. Through my blog, I learned how to be patient, to accept failure,to be able to smile in every situation, to stand tall when I feel like things aren’t going so well, and sometimes to let go & relax when I feel the need for “me time”… and there is much more to learn!
7. What makes you smile or how do you make your love ones smile :)?
I believe in positive thinking, that you are what you attract, so making me smile is not a hard task. I can look at the trees and be like “wow , thank you God, its a beautiful tree”, I appreciate everything. I believe making people smile is not hard as well, always share beautiful thoughts, show them their worth, be nice & kind. As for my loved and close ones, I act crazy and it works all the time :p
8. Are you considering to have your own fashion line some day Mirna?
Being So involved in the fashion world, exploring my self through it, and having my own blog , I always think about having a side business ,to be an enterpreneur ,have my own line. So , yes its part of my future plan.
9. What advice would you give to upcoming artists?
Yes we all heard this before, “be unique”, “be different”, but you don’t know how amazing it is to be yourself. Each one of us is different, each one of us deserves to be appreciated and accepted. Unleash your personality/character, you will be surprised when you feel like the world is not really against you, and that you ,your difference makes a true difference in this world.! YOU ROCK!
