Who am I? My name is Marijke Versluijs, I was born in 1990 and my parents gave me one of the most Dutch names you can imagine, which explains why it’s very hard to pronounce if you aren’t Dutch.. So don’t worry, you’re not standing alone in this matter 😉
A few years ago I joined a Fashion Blog Battle without having my own fashion blog. While participating I discovered the world of fashion bloggers, fell in love with several platforms and wanted to create one of my own to inspire people myself.
I just simply loved it, went all the way and won the battle! Crazy, isn’t it?! And life changing.. The very next day I launched my website and started to post weekly while I was still teaching at the primary school and studying Digital Design at Akademie Vogue. Added to that I did some part time modelling and soon I had to make a choice since it wasn’t easy to juggle. In the summer of 2015 I decided to take the plunge and start fulltime modelling.
I tried to keep on blogging while modelling, but I couldn’t fulfill both at the same time. Especially in the beginning, when full time modelling was new to me, I found it very hard to post a blogpost to my liking in the few hours I had left. Especially not since I’m quite a perfectionist. I decided to quit the fashion blog projects to focus on my modelling career.
I still don’t have a lot of spare time, but once in a while I’ll drop a blog, because I do miss to create a little online bubble of mine!
I hope you will enjoy and please don’t hesitate to contact me if have a question, want to share a little tip or just want to drop me a fun note!
