Favorite clothing brand? New Yorker
Favorite breakfast meal?Give a plate full of bacon and I’m good to go
Favorite place you’ve visited? Humm… Probably Namibia!
Favorite childhood memory? So when I used to live in Canada, I was about four years old. I was mad cause none of my family wanted to take me to the park. So you know what I did? Took matters into my own hands! I left the house barefoot and walked my ass to the park by myself. Too bad I was caught by a police officer that took me home straight away… This happened twice. The same day lol I love that story.
Favorite quote? “If you want to heal, let it be glorious” -Queen Bey
Favorite film? Right Now?? I mean, Collatera Beauty was so damn good. Made me cry my mascara out. Definitely my favorite movie of all time… Right next to the WHOLE saga of The Hunger Games. Those are my babes!
This or That:
Lipstick or lipgloss? I love lipgloss! Every time I don’t have to be worried about kissing my bf, it’s a go! Gloss is so glamorous. I love it!
Bronzer or blush? Blush!
Ocean or lake? Ocean
Big city or small town? Big city!
Listen to music or watch a film? Wow this one is difficult! Music is my life… so listening to music 24/7 ain’t a problem for me!

Simple Questions:
When did you start your blog? It hasn’t been that long. I started my blog two weeks and a half a go and I’ve been loving it so far.
Why did you start you blog? 
I’ve always been passionate about writing stuff. Usually I write story but this summer I decided to do something different. To create my own thing, my own “Brand” in order to be recognized by it. I still have a long journey but I’ve been loving it.
Do you have a blog schedule? Yes. I always have to post at least three posts a week. I don’t want to schedule specific days cause, you know, you never know what life will bring you.
In your opinion what is the best fashion trend at the moment? 
Oh Gosh. You know these new translucid glasses that everyone has been wearing? Those are my favorite trend of the moment. I love wearing them. They make you look so bossy lol

Let’s Get A Deeper Connection

What advice would you give your younger self? 
When I was young, I would let people take a hold of my life. I was so dependent on my friends and I didn’t even know the meaning to love myself. So I would probably say to her: “Don’t let your feelings take over your life. There’s nothing wrong with you… that’s just how life works. Take a break from people and focus on yourself. Learn to love yourself before wanting to love anyone else. And things will get better! Work harder so you can accomplish your goals… Things may not go the way you expect but it’s not the end of the world. You will cry… But you will also get yourself up! And become stronger. Don’t worry so much about boys, girl… The love of your life will come when it’s the right time, so don’t rush anything. You’re beautiful. You’re smart. You’re funny. Don’t let anyone tell you less than that. Oh and stop posting selfies on top of the bathroom toilet as a Facebook profile photo. Those are just wrong and embarrassing and they will hunt you in the future.”
How would you describe yourself? 
Well, I’m a shy person but once you get to know me, I’m a funny person to be around. I love goofing around and acting crazy with my friends and spend hours laughing with them. I am passionate, caring, a hopeless romantic. I am also stubborn and definitely not a morning person. I’m very emotional and sensitive.
If you could move anywhere right now, where would you go and why? I would go to Canada. I’ve lived there before and if I could I would go back because I just love that country and I have good memories there. And I love speaking English.
In your opinion, what is your best quality? 
Like I said before, I’m a very caring person. I will put somebody else’s needs first in order to make them feel better. Even if that means sacrificing my well being.
Clara, thank you so so very much for taking the time out of your day to answer these questions! You did absolutely amazing and I loved all of your answers, especially your advice to yourself because I feel like so many people can connect with that. Amazing! Everyone should go on over to Clara’s blog and give her a massive follow!

  1. Wow… Bea, I’m sorry but I had no idea this actually came out! I’m not sure if you’ll see this, but this post brought tears to my eyes. I wrote this three years ago and now, that I’m finally stepping back into my blog, it’s awesome to read this. The advice I would give to my younger self was honestly spot on. I moved to the UK, I’m studying my dream course and I’m dating the love of my life for a year now. Everything does happen for a reason. I’m so happy! Thank you for this 🙂
