Interview w/ Fabulous JazziRose

FIRSTSECOND* By JazziRose

Dear readers,

For this new year I have many new post ideas that will feature some fellow, bloggers, instagrammers and other talented souls.

Today, I wanted to introduce you to the very artistic Jasmin Rosenberg that I discovered on Instagram – JAZZIROSE.

Please go check out her blog – I think she has one of the best feeds ever. If you are into the very minimal and white theme, you will love her account & as everyone knows already I am all about that.

Without further do, let me share you my favorite posts from her (I’ll try my best not to put them all here) and scroll down for the complete interview.

——

Tell us a bit about yourself:

– My name is Jasmin and I’m 20 years old. I was born and raised in the southern part of Denmark in a city called Svendborg, where I currently still live with my parents and little brother.

Something you love about the city you live in:

– What I love most about my hometown is probably that it is located very close to the coast. From my home there is about 5-10 minutes to the nearest harbor and beach. It kinda gives me sense of freedom rather than being “stranded” in the center of the country. Also, I think that the size of the city is spot on. Not too big and overwhelming as some big capitals might seem, nor so small that you’ll get bored here.

Currently studying/working? Something you love about it:

– I graduated summer 2013 from what you internationally would call “High School”

I had no idea what I wanted to study next, so I took a year break from everything and basically spend all my time with family and friends.

This summer I, very spontaneously, started at university on a rather new education called “Intercultural pedagogy”.

But it just wasn’t the right choice for me. I felt sad whenever I went to school, didn’t feel like I belonged there and the subjects didn’t really interest me either. So I dropped out of uni in December, which was actually quite hard for me, because I somewhat felt like I gave up.

But now, I have applied to a new school and a new education, “Marketing management” which starts in February.

I have a much better feeling about this, but I won’t know until later on in January whether my application has been accepted or not. (crossing fingers)

What are your hobbies?

– One of my biggest hobbies has to be photography. I take pictures with my iPhone 4s or my Nikon d3200.

I absolutely love the whole “set up” of a picture and I have fun editing the images afterwards.

I love to share my photos on Instagram where I feel that I get a lot of feedback aswell as inspiration back from the people I follow.

I also enjoy more ordinary things, like cooking and workouts at the gym 🙂

How would you discribe your personal fashion style? Do you find inspiration in some celebreties? 

In 4 words: minimalistic, simple, casual and most importantly, comfortable.

I live in oversized, chunky jumpers, cardigans and black leggings. My wardrobe consists mostly of black, white, grey and nude items, because that’s just what I feel most comfortable in. I often add red lipstick to an outfit, so I don’t look completely washed out.

I used to always wear whatever everyone else wore, but now I focus on just feeling comfortable in what I’m wearing.

I respect people with personal style, who can manage to stand out in the crowd (without having to wear bright yellow clothes ofc.)

I love to browse through Pinterest to find inspiration and I’m a huge fan of Mary-kate and Ashley Olsen’s style. They are always on point!

You instagram feed is absolutely gorgeous – where do you find your inspiration? 

– Thank you so much! I follow a lot of similar accounts on Instagram and get inspired by them everyday.

Also, I’m scrolling though the Pinterest app daily, which to me is a huge inspirational source that I think everyone should join!

I can also easily find inspiration on TV, commercials, in a magazine or just at the mall. Everywhere basically! 

Tips and Tricks for an awesome looking Instagram: 

– The best advice I can give is to try and find a “theme” for your feed. It could be food, fashion, fitness, your lifestyle, interior design, the way you edit your pictures, a certain color, whatever you like. Try to find a common thread that kinda connects all your pictures and in that way gives your feed a certain style. I also recommend that you take pictures in natural daylight and that you don’t add too many filters and effects.

Just adjusting the brightness and contrast of the image can do so much! (that’s at least what I prefer to do)

Something amazing that has happened thanks to your account?

– I’ve had the pleasure to receive a few products from different brands, which to me is so amazing and I’m so thankful for that!

I’ve also done a giveaway not too long ago with an amazing brand called Hoff by Hoff.

This year, I’m collaborating with a new women’s wear fashion label called Míela, and I will also be blogging for them. 

What are you most looking forward this year? 

– Hopefully, I’m looking forward to starting on my new education and I’m excited to see how that goes.

Other than that, I don’t have anything in particular that I’m looking forward to. But who knows, your never know what the future might bring.

To conclude, share with us a couple of your current favorite pictures/quotes/etc: 

Quotes: “Close some doors. Not because of pride, incapacity, or arrogance, but simply because they no longer lead somewhere.”
“Ask yourself if what your are doing today, is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow.
 
Here are some fashion and interior pictures that I find very inspirational. 
They are all from Pinterest, so if you like this “simple, minimalistic, less is more” kinda style you should follow me there! (www.pinterest.com/iamjazzirose)

Monikh’s Little Treasures

MONIKH

EN

I discovered Monikh through Estée from Essie Button (love love love her). Monikh is a personnal shopper at Top Shop and has amazing style that she features in her fashion blog. Her blog is very nice but what I personally prefer is her instagram account where she shows little moments of her everyday life (and of course some outfits) but also wonderful quotes that all have the same typo and give so much harmony to her page. I wanted to share some of them that are particularly inspiring to me. I might print and frame them! Hope you like them. 🙂

FR

J’ai découvert Monikh à traver le blog d’Estée, Essie Button (que j’a-dore!). Monikh est une personnal shopper pour Top Shop qui a un incroyable style qu’elle partage dans son blog mode. Ce dernier est vraiment sympa mais j’ai personnellement un petit penchant pour son compte instagram où on peut apercevoir des petits bouts de sa vie de tous les jours avec évidemment ses tenues mais aussi de fabuleuses citations à la typo constante qui donnent une forte harmonie à sa page. Je voulais partager avec vous mes citations préférées que je vais surement imprimer et encadrer dans ma chambre! J’espère que vous les aimerez autant que moi. 🙂

PT

Descobri a Monikh através do blog da EstéeEssie Button (que adoro adoro!). Monikh é uma personnal shopper para a loja Top Shop com um estilo incrível que partilha no seu blog de moda. Gosto muito do blog mas tenho uma certa preferência pela sua pagina do instagram onde partilha o sei dia a dia o que inclui nomeadamente os seus outfits mas também muitas citações que ela partilha sempre com a mesma tipografia o que da muita harmonia a sua pagina. Decidi partilhar aquelas que mais me têm inspirado ultimamente e que estou muito seriamente a pensar imprimir e colocar em molduras para o meu quarto! Espero que gostem tanto como eu. 🙂

Gracias Mango

I have been holding this post for too long now. Can we PLEASE talk about the new GORGEOUS Mango collection?
I just can’t.

If you haven’t checked it out already, here it goes:

I have been wanting to write about it since I first saw the fall items in the stores but it was just too soon. I was still rocking summer – fall had to be a future topic. Ha!

Now it’s September, back to school/work time. We can focus on those amazing pants, blazers, sweaters. And I must say, with their clean lines and colors, they are contributing so badly to my minimalistic fever!

These amazing suit pants are on top of my wishlist right now:

Plus, look how cool the party after the show looked. Is anyone going there for the next one and want to bring me alone?

Cheers!

Homebar Inspiration

Inspo Board

1234

I am in this particular phase of summer where everyone around me is  wrapping up summertime and planning for their projects next year. Although we are still in vacation, I can feel things slowing down a little bit and moving towards what I like to call “The September Vibe”.

I have been catching up with a bunch of friends lately, telling eachother our vacation and it has been great. And for those little gathering parties, I have to say, a good homebar is a must!

I decided to create this inspiration board to share how I would personally style mine. As you may have seen in other posts, I love a good minimalist decoration. So really, sharing my must haves in a inspo board was kind of hard, but I stumbled upon all these pictures which really are a good reflection of what you would be able see on top of my homebar.

Here are my personal must haves:

Nice Furniture: I found this bar stool on Chairish.com, a website that is specialized in vintage furniture. They have gorgeous pieces that I highly invite you to check out.

Fresh Plants: Having some fresh plants, flowers OR – a single jumbo leaf in a vase. I saw that on a recent post from apairandasparediy.com and I absolutely loved it. It is just so simple, chic and it really is not that hard to find.

Drinks and Snacks: If I was to entertain a small group or just a friend or two, I would definitely chill around the bar with a bottle of wine, cheese, some nuts and fresh fruit. Because I mean you know.. you have to treat yourself 😉

Cosy Lighting: Another must-have for me are those long hanging lights. I think they dress up the room so nicely, and if you want a more cosy room, turning all the bigger lights off and leaving these on, gives such a nice atmosphere.

How would you personally style your home bar?

Søstrene Grene – Danish Goodies

I went to Copenhagen a few months ago for an amzing trip where I got to see some very good friends of mine.

It was my first time there and in Scandinavia in general. I absolutely LOVED it. I cannot stop talking about how everything is great over there since I came back.

A post about the trip (or maybe a whole series – let me know if you would be interested) should be up soon.

Anyway, while I was there I got the opportunity of going to this amazing store Søstrene Grene (I know. Don’t even try to pronounce it. Ha!). For those of you who might not know it you may know the store Tiger and it is basically the same idea. A bunch of very affordable cute little things for the house (some useful decoration and toys and some… very random but so gorgeous items).

So I went to their website yesterday to relive a little how nice everything was over there and I stumbled upon some videos! As you might have understood by now, I am a visual person, I love watching videos. And let me tell you, the videos are absolutely amazing, so entertaining, useful, easy to watch. They remind me a lot of the Leaf.tv website that I wrote about here.

And BEFORE you start wondering how you will be able to understand videos from a Danish company – remember they are smart. They know their language is tough and the international market is huge. You will understand everything there. #takforengelsk 🙂

Over there you will be able to find short videos about DIY projects and Food!
