If there is one thing about Long Distance Relationship that you can freely talk about, I only know one person who expresses herself in fashion and style with
a touch of love for Scotland.
Sher is the author of Beneath the Crystal Stars
. I happen to discover her blog one night when I was browsing through other blogs and checking on their blog rolls when I came across Sher’s lovely haven. She has a great taste in fashion which she can associate everytime she writes something about her feelings. The fact that she has been in a LDR makes me want to visit her blog all the time because I share the same sentiments. And because of that a new friendship via comments and the blogosphere world opened.
My first favorite blog award goes to Sher of Beneath the Crystal Stars. I sent her some questions that she can answer and here are her lovely thoughts.
Sweet: How did you get into blogging?
Sher: I started to blog when my boyfriend left for Scotland to further his studies 2 years ago. The blog was a way for me to share with him bits and pieces of my life here and he was my one and only faithful reader. Somehow along the way, I found out about the existence of other wonderful, whimsical blogs and they inspired me to evolve and take my blog a step further!
Sweet: If you had to describe your blog in less than 20 words how would describe it?
Sher: Hmm, my blog is a haven and sweet sanctuary where all my wishes and dreams culminate.
Sweet: How long have you been blogging?
Sher: I’ve been blogging about 2 years plus now.
Sweet: Is this a full time job?
Sher: I wish! I actually have a full time job in a bank.
Sweet: In what category can you qualify your blog?
Sher: Bits of fashion, silly girlie daydreams and inspirations.
Sweet: How many blogs do you have?
Sher: Only one:)
Sweet: What are some of your goals this year for your blog?
Sher: I don’t really set any goals for my blog to be honest, I always try to improve myself and represent the best of me with hopes that others will continue to enjoy reading my blog.
Sweet: Where do you find inspiration for you outfit post?
Sher: Oh, I find inspiration everywhere! From magazines like Lula or Vivi to other style bloggers to movies. Sometimes an idea for an outfit would come out of nowhere when I close my eyes or even when I’m working!
Sweet: How does your workplace look like?
Sher: It’s just a normal looking office I guess:)
Sweet: What advice would you give to new bloggers wanting to start their own blogs?
Sher: I was initially really shy to share my blog with others or to leave a comment on other blogs I liked. But when I gathered enough courage, I was surprised at how many people who would actually take the time to visit my blog and leave me sweet comments. I’m really glad I overcame my shyness because I’ve met so many wonderful, warm people through the blog. So my advice is don’t be shy and leave lots of comments on blogs you like! Also, be yourself, your blog should be an extension of your personality and what really reflects you.
