Dana is 19 years old, a fashion student and is new to the blogging world!
When we came across Dana’s blog, we quickly fell in love with her story. Dana moved from Israel to the states when she was just 13 years old, not knowing any English. But as she learned more and more about the American culture, it inspired her to become who she is today.
Check out her Q&A below to find out more about her and be sure to follow her on Instagram @divadfashionn:
Why did you start blogging? And what currently drives you to keep up with it?
I have always wanted to create something personal that other people could relate to and keep up with.
I opened my blog just a few months ago and I have already gotten great feedback which motivates me to create more.
I love adventures and exploring around cities and so all my pictures are at different locations.
What would you consider your personal style to be and what influences your style?
Honestly, I think my personal style depends on how I feel when I wake up in the morning.
Sometimes I wake up and I’m in the mood for a black outfit.
Sometimes I want to try something new and wear a color.
But for the most part it is hard for me to wear colors because I love black way too much.
However, my secret is to make my look seem happy and colorful by playing around with my makeup.
Are there any fashion labels you love?
To be honest I shop everywhere I go. I buy something if it catches my eye and if I like it.
Nowadays I am obsessed with shopping online and my favorite online stores are:
But when I do leave my house and go shopping in the real world, Zara would probably be my first stop. But I do shop everywhere!
What beauty products do you live by?
There is nothing I love more than taking care of my skin (it’s almost a little too obsessive haha).
Recently I have started using Kopari coconut oil and I love it!! It makes my skin so smooth and glowy.
Also, I have been using Argan Oil of Morocco from CVS for my hair. It’s great, cheap and easy to use!!
What bloggers do you follow and why?
Do you blog full time?
So, I am a student and have a lot of work but when I’m not busy doing work I am always on the go with my blog.
I usually post on my blog once a week but when I don’t post on my blog I’m on an adventure and constantly taking pictures.
My Instagram game is strong and I try to post as least once a day if not twice.
Who takes your photos?
I have a photographer his name is Pete Tran , he’s from Rhode Island and he is great!
I love the way the pictures come out and their consistency.
But also, when my photographer is not around I ask my friends or family, to take pictures of me and sometimes I take the pictures myself.
What is your favorite part about blogging? And what’s the worst part about it?
The best part about blogging is exploring and trying new things. I love trying new products and getting to know new people through it every day. I am a people person and so getting to know new people and learning new skills is probably my favorite part.
The worst part about blogging is probably being stressed about what people want to see and how to make people interested in my blog. But I am new and so far, it’s been great I love every second of it.
What do you love most about your blog?
The one thing that I love about my blog is how I focus a lot on my pictures and not overdoing it with so much writing. I think that people mostly care about visuals and that’s what I am currently focusing on.
Also, I have taught myself how to design and create my whole website and I am really proud of myself for doing it all in such a short time. And to be honest I learn new things every day and I just enjoy that so much!
What piece of advice would you give to anyone starting their own blog?
The one piece of advice that I would give is to not give up when times get hard. I know blogging could take a lot of your time but at the end of the day it is worth it. When people want to learn about your life and just see what you do on a daily basis it’s so rewarding and definitely makes it so worth it! Xo
Have any fashion blog goals for 2017?
My goal for this year is to grow as much as possible and make a lot of connections. I also want to evenly start my own clothing line and maybe this year would be the year I get myself out there!
What’s a random fact about you that many people may not know about you?
My close friends already know this but I am obsessed with Cinderella. I know I’m almost 20 and I probably should have moved on from that after I turned 12 but I didn’t… but I do love Disney in general and every Disney movie that comes out I will be the first one to see it guaranteed. It’s weird I know but that’s what makes me different.
