GG: What, or who, inspired you to create your blog?
Alison Liaudat: The idea of starting a blog came up after meeting a friend who had his own blog. In 2013. I have always been the kind of girls who were scrolling blogs everyday, it has been in my daily routine for a while. At this time, I was working for an online shop and wanted to build a personal project outside of my profession. I’ve always been fascinated by the fashion industry and starting a blog was a great opportunity to step into this world.
