Blog Love: Daria of Kittenhood

Today, I'm happy to share one of my favorite blogs lately - Kittenhood. Daria and I met online by interning for Shabby Apple  She is a complete sweetheart with an adorable blog. I love her pretty, feminine style and her gorgeous photography. AND she lives in Romania, which makes her really, really cool, right?

What are five words to describe your personality? 
I'd say I'm funny, organized, accepting of others and a combination of workaholic and procrastinator. 

Tell us a bit about where you're from, and how it influences your style. 
I've grown up in a small town, where the torn jeans and safety pins I was wearing at the time were outrageous. I've moved to a larger city for college and have lived here since - it's a pleasure and a relief to be able to wear such things as an oversized bow or exaggerated platforms, without getting too many concerned looks.

What got you interested in style blogging?
Last year, I took part in Thing-a-Day, a project where people make something every day through February and post it on a blog. My idea was to create an accessory (a brooch, a necklace etc.) and style it in an outfit afterwards. I did that for 28 days, people liked it, and I liked it, too. Of course, I was already reading and loving several personal style blogs.

What do you do when you’re not blogging?
I'm a freelance writer, and lately I've worked almost exclusively with fashion brands. I also do some social media tasks for them - like for Shabby Apple, which you already know, or a Romanian online magazine dedicated to crafting. Why crafting - because I have a line of handmade accessories as well. When I'm not working, I'm a stay at home mom for my cat, Lizzi. 

How did you name your blog?
I started my accessories line first and then named the blog after it, the two were connected. As you can imagine, I do love cats, and this word "kittenhood" describes the time when a cat is a kitten,  and is most adorable. Some people read it as Kitten Hood, so I guess that works, too.

Who are your favorite bloggers right now?
I can't get over how cool Miss Moss is! As for some more recent discoveries, I like Scathingly Brilliant and Katie's Pencil Box. 

How would you describe your style?
Girly, maybe a bit too childish for my age. The thing is I can't stay away from anything cute. 

What are your favorite items in your closet?
You know how it is, the latest purchase is always the favorite! But I'm really grateful for my dresses. I especially like those with a sentimental value attached, like a lace dress made by my grandmother for my mother, a dress that was the first gift my boyfriend ever gave me, a dress that I wore to my sister's wedding or a dress I bought in Portugal. 

What are some trends you love right now? What are some you hate?
I'm crazy about collars of all sorts - buttoned up shirts, Peter-Pan collars, necklaces that imitate collars. And I love prints with animals - especially cats. 
One thing I can't see myself wearing are those see-through maxi skirts. But you never know, my tastes always change. 

Who are your style icons?
The people who inspire me most are probably style bloggers. Out of the celebrities, I'm mad about Alexa Chung - she's always impeccable and effortless. 

Give us your best fashion advice.
Never say never.
