I am so done with this week lol and can't be happier that the weekend is here:)
I'm bringing back a feature that I've ran a few times before on The Creative Mixx. Since most of my readers happen to be bloggers themselves, I thought it would be a cool idea to feature a blogger every now and then to get the scoop on why they started blogging, where they came up with their name,how they've promoted themselves and so on....
I had posted on a IFB forum ages ago that I was looking to interview bloggers (which I still am by the way, so email me if you are interested!) and I got an email from a lovely blogger a couple of weeks ago:)
So tonight, I'd like to introduce you to the blogger behind Style Fiesta
Why did you decide to become a blogger and how did you come up with the name of your blog?
I was interning with a fashion house when I first came across fashion blogs- and I was absolutely swept by the idea. Expressing your style, inspirations and opinions, posting outfits - it was just something I had to do.
How long has your blog been up and running?
Two and a half months.
Is blogging your full-time gig? If not, what do you do on the 9 to 5?
Im a student, currently graduating in business along with fine arts. I don’t treat blogging as work, or a source of income, Its what I love doing.
What steps have you taken to promote your blog?
Features/commenting on other blogs/being active on IFB, style pile etc. and most importantly, trying to give my readers a good reason to come back.
Do you have a blogger business card?
How would you describe your personal style?
Individualistic. I dress according to my mood. Somewhere between vintage and high street : )
What was your most recent fashion purchase?
A baby pink satchel.
Do you have future plans for your blog? Where would you like to see it go?
Since I've just started and got such an amazing response already, I definitely see my blog growing into a more established and recognized one. A blog that's known for its unique style.
What's one of your favourite posts?
‘Fashion meets food.’ Two of my favorite things in this world :)
What advice do you have for other bloggers starting out?
Believe in yourself. And most importantly- BE yourself.

Before I post a casual feature tonight, I'd like to give you more amazing news about the giveaway I have running. If you didn't get a chance to read the post, just click HERE
Well....The Vintage Scarf has been kind enough to offer a 10% discount to anyone who would like to make a purchase during the contest period (that means the code would end on Feb. 7th)
Here's the code!!! Necole10
Tonight I'd like to post the works of a very talented illustrator from Calgary, AB on The Creative Mixx. His name is Terry Irwin of Terry Irwin Art Prints and I used to work with him.
He's been doing rather well getting his name out there and his prints are a wonderful reflection of the things that he sees, dreams about, laughs about, finds strange, finds beautiful and makes him hungry.
I have yet to own a Terry Irwin Art Print, but need to get on that asap!

Thanks to having a profile on the Fashion Industry Netwok, I met The Vintage Scarf!
Founded by Paula Horlick, “The Vintage Scarf”, offers eco-chic timeless scarves in several classic colors, materials, and styles. The original scarves have lasted many fashion seasons and can be easily reused and re-styled for today’s trendy eco-chic fashionista.
Headquartered in Bella Vista, Arkansas, Horlick founded The Vintage Scarf in 2008 and continues to be inspired by others who encourage her to continue reaching for her passion, goals, and dreams. Horlick’s favorite quote is: “Never, never, never give up!” which motivates her to work harder at fulfilling her aspirations.
As you know, I've got a thang for Vintage. So I was eager to partner up for a giveaway, but I found this information so refreshing that I had to connect with The Vintage Scarf:
Horlick sends personal “Thank You” notes to every customer after each purchase. Because each scarf is “The Real Deal”, Horlick offers a 30-day, 100% authenticity guarantee on all scarf accessories, scarves, and shawls.
How cool is that!
AND, since I consider myself (for the most part) a Diva on a Dime, I love the fact that these lovely scarves are so affordable; ranging in price from $12.99 to $24.99 USD.
Let me show you some of the loveliness that can be found at The Vintage Scarf
