Hello and welcome back! As you’ve probably noticed, I gave up on my 2018 writing challenge after deciding that I would prefer posting content that was to my liking, rather than posting on a hasty schedule. At a more comfortable pace, I’m trying to blog once a week instead, and there you have it.
Today’s post comes from a place of admiration and excitement from yours truly. I had the pleasure of getting connected with the creator of my favorite french blog, Maison Fhlurs, and to my enjoyment we’re doing a little Q&A!
Before we get into the post there are somethings you should know about Sara. She’s an 18-year-old blogger from Europe whose taste in fashion and beauty are ever so french, and I adore it all. On her page, Sara updates us on everything from the highlights of fashion week to the how-to’s of Parisian lifestyle. Her Instagram is also a catalog for french models and bloggers, and I begin craving macarons and Yves Saint Laurent every time it appears on my feed.
When did you start blogging? I actually started blogging at 15, but I started Maison Fhlurs when i just turned 17, I’m 18 now.
What was your intent when creating Maison Fhlurs? To create a place where people could relax enjoy and educate themselves about fast fashion, the runway, and also as an creative outlet for myself.
What is your favorite post that you’ve made? what a girl of this moment can lurn about philosophy
Who is your biggest inspiration for beauty? Jeanne Damas
What is your favorite clothing piece or accessory that you have? My wool turtleneck jumper that I always wear.
Do you keep up with trends? I never keep up with trends, I would rather stick to my own style
How would you describe your personal style? Simple, basic, French and still interesting silhouettes.
Zodiac sign: sagittarius
Favorite literature: “The Beautiful Fall” by Alicia drake, it’s interesting because it tells you something about the life of fashion designers in the ’70s.
Top 5 favorite songs at the moment:
- avf – stromae
- la femme – antitaxi
- stairway to heaven – led zeplin
- rocket man – elton john
- la vie en rose – édith piaf
Where is your favorite travel destination? Versailles. I love the history of Versailles and a part of my family lives there. And it’s close to Paris, duh.
Where do you hope to be in 10 years? I hope to be in my own apartment in paris with an amazing boyfriend, and that I have my own design line.
Sara was lovely enough to take time out of her busy schedule of actually posting daily on her blog (she’s a winner, I know) to answer a few of my questions! So go check out her blog and instagram for me, and I dare you to tell me that you don’t want to buy a beret after looking at her photos.
As always, thank for reading and thank you to Sara for always inspiring,
