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 involved with my other passion: teaching. Added to that I did some part time modelling while studying and while blogging my modelling career was brought to a higher level.
Soon I had to make a choice since it wasn’t easy to juggle and 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. I have to mention that me being a perfectionist didn’t help either. I had to make a choice again and decided to quit the fashion blog projects and focus on my modelling career.
I still don’t have a lot of spare time, but once in a while I still post one, 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 at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to ask me a question, share a little tip or just want to drop me a fun note!
