Q & A

Why did you start blogging?

I had a passion for fashion and a creativity which I couldn’t keep inside me. In the beginning Stinus It was a place of DIY and quick posts, but it has developed with me. Now it’s all about fashion and inspiration. Something I just can’t let go of, even if I wanted to.

Describe yourself in 3 words?

Creative, loving and ambitious

What is your favourite song right now?

Uhh tough one! I must say – everything sung by John Mayer. He’s my kinda music.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

I could actually see myself several places. Maybe I’m living in another country? Maybe I’ve just moved to Copenhagen. I hope to study something exiting or/and having a job I’m exited to show up to every day. If I’m lucky maybe I have a guy friend to spend some time with? Who knows?

Who is your biggest blog inspiration?

That must be either Catherine from RockPaperDresses or Pernille Teisbæk who recently shut down her blog. Catherine is great with words and writes the most amazing posts. At the same time she’s both positive and wears colorful outfits – what more to love? Pernille is a major inspiration for every danish woman, in my opinion. She’s danish and one of the fashion industry’s biggest influencers.

Have you ever travelled, if so where?

To travel is to live, right? I’ve been in Italy, Spain, Greece, UK, Germany, Czech Republic, Malta, Austria and I think that’s it so far. I hope to travel a lot more in the future!

Would you encourage your friends to start a blog and why/why not?

I would – if they had a passion for something and really wanted to put in all of the work that it takes. But sure, if they had an urge and a will to do it, I would support them all the way.

What social media platforms do you use to promote your blog content?

I usually use Facebook the most, but Instagram is also really helpful. Sometimes I use my snapchat and LinkedIn a little bit.

What is your favourite movie of all time?

That is just a mean question… Like for real… Instead I’m going to share a few favorites (guilty pleasures coming up): Disney movies all the way (yes, oh yes! If you aren’t into them.. it’s a crime), Safe Haven (so powerful and touching movie, I can’t even describe it. Watch it now! I think I’m gonna) and at last I’m a sucker for the Twilight, Hunger games and Divergent series (a total guilty pleasure).

How long have you been blogging for?

I’ve been blogging 3 years this January – at least on this blog. I had a blogspot blog for a short period of time before, but I closed it down cause.. Yeah, it was pointless: “I’m just doing my homework, what about you?”-ish. I wasn’t really sure about what a blog was back then – luckily I’ve learned a bit over the years.

What do you do in your spare time, besides blogging?

I dance, do gymnastics, sing and then I’m the president of a “club/selection” at school. And oh, right now I’m working on a musical, which I’m starring in – premiering in the beginning of April.

11 FACTS

My humor is non-existing and when I finally say something just a bit funny, my close friends are almost amazed haha.

I follow so many blogs that it should be impossible, but I just enjoy all the inspiration.

I thought I was going to be a professional photographer when I was younger, sooner or later I realized that it actually wasn’t my biggest dream at all (and I definitely didn’t have the talent)

I love being alone. It doesn’t matter what I’m doing – traveling, watching a movie, taking a walk, reading a book and so on. But of course I like people too, I just need a little me-time.

I save every single issue of the Costume magazine I get – so far I have almost every single issue from the beginning. Though I can thank my aunt for that – she’s been saving them ever since the magazine started and gave them to me a year or two ago.

I prepare my outfits when I go to fashion week. Not just thinking them and then packing, no no. I paint and color them so I’m sure it actually matches and to make sure I don’t forget the details and so on. Might be quite weird…

When I start a new book I often finish reading it a few days later, even if it’s like 500 pages. I get so caught up in the story that I just can’t let go of it.

When I write my signature I look a bit away – in that way it’s very messy but in the same way every time.

I cried two days ago because I got a “go” from my doctor, so now I’m allowed to take my drivers license! So extremely happy!

I’m really cheap compared to other bloggers. I really don’t like to spend more than 200 dkk on something and if I spend more than 700 dkk in one shopping trip I feel like I’ve done something bad.

My middle name is Amalie, so my full name is: Laura Amalie Augustinus.
