1) How long have you been blogging?
Marina: For almost one and a half year now !
Maria: I've been blogging since 2011 .I started with a blog called missminthewonderland which was about celebrity styles and one year later I started a personal style blog with my friend called M&M fashion bites.
2) What got you started in fashion blogging?
Marina: Actually it was my co-blogger Maria ! She had the idea of starting a blog ! Although I was kinda hesitant at the begining , now I'm addicted to it ! So I thank her and give her props ! we have such an amazing time blogging !
Maria: The thing that made me start was of course my love for fashion and my drive to show people around the world my personal style.
3) Is there someone who helps you with your blogging (friend, photographer, co-blogger, etc.) or do you do it on your own?
Marina: Yes , We do most of the photoshoots along with my co-blogger Maria as I said before and It's great ,we have fun and sometimes we even get into a little trouble ! I do the writing and editing part alone ..
Maria: The best thing about M&M fashion Bites is that it includes two girls passioned with what they are doing, so its very easy for us to do what we do because we have each other to help with shooting.

4) Who are your favorite style icons?
Marina: Hmm I'm actually inspired by lot's of people and to be honest that's changing constantly! But some of my all time favs are : Sex and the city's fashion addict Carrie Bradshaw , the oh-so-chic Audrey Hepburn and Βlake Lively as the famous gossip girl Serena VanderWoodsen !
Maria: I like the style of Kate Bosworth, Candice Sweanpoel and my lovely Rosie Huntington Whitley.
5) How would you describe your style?
Marina: Although it changes a lot as well.. I would describe it as feminine , comfy but chic , glamorous but not too much and sometimes slightly extravagant !
Maria: I think my style is simple & chic at the same time and sometimes very casual.
6) What got you interested in fashion?
Marina: I really don't know exactly what was it.. I guess I always had a thing for fab clothes and glossy magazine covers ! I was always dreaming about models and catwalks from the time I realized what fashion is.. And
I have to be honest here! Οne of my biggest inspirations was the iconic Barbie ! Hats,shoes,dresses,colors so many options and such a colorfull game ! I wanted to grow up and continue to play that game only not with barbie! As I was growing up I also realized that fashion, trends,clothes and style was a way for people to express themselves in a way that everyone could see.. kinda like Art! and that was it!
