I am Violeta and welcome to Shoegal Out In The World – my very own corner of the internet which has been my home for the past decade (and a bit!) What started as an online diary in which I documented my interests as a graduate student back in 2012, has evolved into a space for my readers to seek inspiration from, and access all of the content and products that I put into the world via my channels on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest.
Having become a mother and moving to the Greek countryside, everything from my fashion, interior, and beauty choices to how I spend my spare time these days is heavily influenced and inspired by my son, the beauty of nature, and the joy I find in seasonal living. Happiest when I am at home pottering in my garden or curled up on the sofa with my husband and son, I am so grateful that you have chosen to be here and look forward to welcoming you into my world.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
I am always humbled by people’s interest in my blog so I compiled a list of answers to the most frequently asked questions.
How did you start blogging and do you have any tips?
I started blogging 11 years ago as a graduate student! I had gotten myself into a bit of a funk and needed to feel inspired again. So I started by sharing my shopping finds, my favorite beauty products, recipes, and lifestyle content in general. Having coded my websites since I was 18 (albeit badly) and used them as an online diary to document my thoughts and life, blogging always came naturally to me. I kept it up after university, alongside my full-time job in project management and translation. Unlike so many creators I had a full-time job and decided not to pursue blogging full-time. Since then, I have never looked back and feel proud to have kept this small corner of the internet alive despite the ups and downs of life.
What is the inspiration behind your style?
The annual seasons, without a doubt. I am completely enchanted by them and find so much beauty in how the colors, textures, and tones of nature evolve throughout the year. So much so that I try and use as much natural texture and tone in our home, to mirror nature and blur the lines between indoors and out. For my style, you can expect to see botanicals and florals across lightweight linens and sheer organza fabrics in Spring and Summer. Come Autumn and Winter, deep earthy tones and heavier wools and cashmere come out to play.
I would love for you to try my brand/ product! How can I go about doing this?
Firstly, thank you so much for thinking of me! I am so honored you would like my opinion on something you have decided to launch. Please do reach out via the ‘Contact page’ and I will get back to you ASAP. Hopefully, we can work together soon.
Do you use affiliate links?
Yes. While I do not prioritize affiliate links over non-affiliate links, some online retailers provide a small percentage of any sale made through a link I have provided. In other words, if you buy something through our links, I may earn an affiliate commission.
Where is ‘X’ from on your Instagram/ Facebook content?
For Instagram and Facebook, I try to tag any featured brands. I also added everything to my Shop page here. I hope that helps!
