Blogger of the Month

Hello Fashion Addicts, we meet again!

Today , I bring to you the first edition ever of Blogger of the Month. For you who have followed me for a while now, know that I did a Fashion Police but blogger edition. After taking many classes on journalism, I realized that a better way to exhibit my favorite bloggers was to quickly interview them and showcase them here on my blog. Hope you like this section and feel free to leave any feedback and/or comments on the comment section!

Bienvenidas Adictas a la Moda!

Hoy les traigo lo prometido. En mi primer post del año anuncie esta sección, Blogger of the Month, donde publicaré una vez al mes una entrevista con alguna de mis bloggers favoritas. Si me sigues desde hace un tiempito, debes recodar que solía publicar Fashion Police: Blogger Edition, pero después de recibir clases en periodismo, pensé. Porque no aplicar mis conocimientos aquí en el blog?!! Espero que esta sección les guste. ¡Espero sus comentarios!

MVTrends

How did mvtrends started?

When I started mvtrends, it was not a fashion blog. It was a platform where I showcased mostly Venezuelan designers. Nonetheless, I always wanted a blog. That is why I decided to open a section in this platform where I could share some fashion and beauty tips, and some of my own style.

With time, I started to fall in love with the idea of blogging. Honestly, I thought it would be a hobby, nothing more. I never thought that it would become part of my job. It happened just like the saying “Find a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in you life.”

I have met a lot of people that has helped me and have given me great opportunities. That is how little by little mvtrends became a fashion and beauty blog. Clearly, I haven’t stopped supporting the Venezuelan designers, I now simply do it in a different way and I love it!

¿Cómo surgió mvtrends?

Cuando empecé mvtrends, no era un blog de moda. Era una plataforma online en donde patrocinaba diseñadoras mayormente Venezolanas. Sin embargo, siempre quise tener un blog. Es por eso que decidí abrir una sección en esta plataforma en donde pudiera compartir un poco algunos consejos de moda, belleza y capaz un poco de mi estilo. 

 

Con el tiempo, me empecé a apasionar con todo este tema del blog. Honestamente, pensé que seria un hobbie nada mas, nunca me imagine que se convertiría en parte de mi trabajo. Me paso tal cual como dice el dicho “Consigue un trabajo que amas, y no tendrás que trabajar ningún dia de tu vida” 

 

He conocido a muchísima gente que me ha ayudado y me ha dado oportunidades increíbles y así poco a poco mvtrends se convirtió en un blog de moda y belleza. Claramente no he dejado de apoyar a diseñadores Venezolanos, simplemente ahora lo hago de una manera diferente ¡y me encanta!

What does being a “blogger” mean to you?

Many people believe that being a blogger just means that you just take pictures and share them on social media or attend events and even receive gifts! But it is more than that. I feel that this, being a blogger, has changed my life and even the way I think of myself. The fact of exposing myself has given a confidence and security I never had and I never thought of having. Being a blogger means inspiring others to be themselves, to take risks and in my case, to have a personal style. Being a blogger means sharing a little bit about your life, what you like and even what you don’t.

¿Para ti, ser una “blogger” que significado tiene?

Mucha gente piensa que ser blogger significa tomarse fotos y compartirlas en redes sociales o ir a eventos y ¡hasta recibir regalos! Pero no es solo eso. Yo siento que esto de ser blogger ha cambiado mi vida y la forma hasta como pienso de mi misma. El hecho de exponerme tanto me ha dado una confianza y seguridad que nunca antes tuve ni pensé tener. Ser blogger es inspirar a otros a ser si mismos, a arriesgarse y en mi caso personalmente, a tener un estilo personal. Ser blogger significa compartir un poco de tu vida, lo que te gusta y hasta lo que no.

 What has been the biggest milestone for you since the start of mvtrends?

To be honest I can’t pick just one. I am very happy with what I do! But, I think that for me the fact that I get to be an Expert in Fashion for Despierta America is something I never imagined.

¿Cual ha sido el mayor logro para ti desde el comienzo de mvtrends? 

La verdad es que no puedo elegir uno solo ¡estoy muy contenta de hacer lo que hago! Sin embargo, creo que para mi el hecho de ser Experta en Moda para Despierta America es algo que jamas me imaginé.

    Such a great blog! I think your pics are beautiful and I love that you have it in both English and Spanish (forces me to dust off my translation skills).

    I love that I get to read this in both Spanish and English as I can speak Portuguese and some words are very similar. Valentina has a gorgeous selection of sunglasses and I really enjoyed reading your review. Looking forward to seeing who your blogger of February will be xx

    Love her interpretation of being a blogger. We are writers, stylists, photographers and editors all wrapped into one.
