Since I’ve discovered this blog I read it everyday, or I at least check Lindsey’s instagram on a daily basis (post notifications are amazing haha).
Finding bloggers that fit my style is pretty hard for me but Ropes of Holland is one of my favourites!
Could you introduce youself?
Lindsey Holland. I’m a twenty something Northern girl living in London. Scandinavian minimalism is where my love lies, be it fashion or interior. I’ve developed a real travel bug recently and am always planning my next adventure.
Why did you started your blog?
I launched Ropes of Holland in January 2012 as a way out of the horrible pile of University work I was lodged under. I wanted a place to voice my opinion and love for fashion and design, and so Ropes of Holland was born.
How did you find your style?
I think it took me a few years to find my style and feel comfortable in my appearance. I owe a lot of that to my mum, she’s one of the annoying people in the world who has a bit of an effortless style going on. We shop together a lot even now and she’ll still find things for me!
This weeks beauty of the week is Sophia Roe, I discovered her a while ago when i was scrolling instagram. I instantly fell in love with her style and the way her feed was set up. After a while i discovered that she also has a blog called Roediary. Since then I love reading her blog and watching her pictures
How did you find your own style?
I guess I’ve always been creative. It’s just in my blood. But I’m still not sure how I found my style. My curiosity for fashion has always been there, so I started my own tumblr when I was around 14 of age. Tumblr was for me a creative playground, but also a free spot, to express something I wasn’t able to do in real life yet. Mostly because of my age.
I have always believed that you should wear what ever makes you feel good. Mostly because you always can tell when someone feels beautiful or confident in their outfit. I found my own style by exploring and studying magazines, thinking ‘what does this show’ or ‘why are these pieces together’?
How did you start you own blog?
As I told, I loved the free space for creativity without restrictions at tumblr. The same passion for creating something aesthetic, came to me when I started my Instagram. My Instagram profile was the thing, that lead me to creating a blog. My followers would always ask me where I got my clothes from, so I thought, why not just link to it on a website. I have never been a good writer, so I’m hoping my pictures tells a story for me.
I have never seen myself as a fashion icon or someone, people would admire particularly, but my blog turned out to be a success. Now I’m doing it for living and that’s a bit scary but also a dream come true. I dreamt about being an architect… but I’m really enjoying my job and i’m 100% positive that this is my path now.
The beauty of this week is Sasha, we have been talking a while trough instagram. And I thought that now would be the time to mention her as beauty of the week.
Sasha is 20 and lives in The Netherlands. She is at the moment graduating from jourlism and her dream is to start and own little buissnes. Her loves skincare and always has great tips for me too keep my skin beautiful. She isn’t really into makeup but she likes to wear it, but as minimal as possible. Her healthy skin is her best makeup.
Nobody in her surroundings really pay attention the sinkcare, as she think it’s really important to takecare of her skin.
Her style is modern and casual, with a hint of vintage. As she doens’t like to shop she still love ging to vintage markets.
You can find Sasha on ig: here
