Julia from Madrid loves life. That’s the first impression when you visit her blog. Lively photo with vibrant colors, unique perspectives and the footprints she left around the world as well as vivid representation she offered to the readers are feasts to eyes, hearts and minds. What’s the secret of posting almost every day for 7 years? Love.
When did you start blogging and how did you come to the idea?
I started blogging seven years ago, when blogs aren’t what they are today, and I promise I can’t remember why I started my blog. I’d love to know it, really.
Who is your style icon? Why?
Sarah Jessica Parker, cause she’s not an exceptional beauty but she knows how to be the most stylish woman every time, every occasion. Also, she combines a lot of clothes and accessories, she has no fear when it comes to fashion.
How do you describe your personal style? What are your inspirations?
I try to be authentic. I wear what I like and what I feel good on. I think that everybody is different and I know that some things look really good on me and others don’t. I like to analyze fashion, I read fashion blogs every day, I like to see what people on the street are wearing, I buy fashion magazines…Anyone could be an inspiration.
What are the essential pieces you must have in your closet?
Black skinny pants, huge heels and an amazing, classy, neutral bag.
How often do you post? How do you come up with post ideas?
I try to post at least four times a week, and I show my everyday looks, trips, lifestyle…
What would you describe the biggest challenge in fashion blogging?
For me the challenge is to be there for seven years posting almost every day. Coming up with new content, improve the quality and finding my own style.
What is the greatest satisfaction of being a fashion blogger?
To be read and commented. I love when people interact. Also I really appreciate the great opportunities you have as a blogger.
A fashion rule you never break?
Always walk classy on your heels. I love heels but when the occasion requires flats I know how to leave my heels apart.
What do you splurge on?
Shoes, I can’t stop myself.
From your point of view, what is the notable trend for the upcoming season?
The total mirror sunnies, pom poms everywhere, and bootcut pants.
Do you make money from your blog? Any advice for others?
Yes I do, but not much, I also have a job. My advice is to do what you want, when you want and not thinking about the money.
What has been your most successful blog post till now and what was it about?
The day I met Olivia Palermo in NYC 🙂 It was an amazing experience! That post is really old and the photos are not good but the experience was priceless. She’s an icon. ( Post link https://www.theulifestyle.com/2011/12/i-really-lived-city.html)
How do you see your blog in 5 years?
I hope it can have more videos, I think they are more personal. Also I see my blog as a bigger family J
