KAROLINA – Karolina Golek at @tint.ofmint and tintofmint.com

DT:
Little girls usually dream of becoming an actress or a princess. You wanted to become a fashion blogger from childhood? How did you become a fashion blogger?

KAROLINA:
No, never to be honest. Back in my childhood Fashion Bloggers weren’t even a thing. I only remember I wanted to share with people my DIY ideas and that was a reason why I created a blog on a first place. Then I got more and more attention and views and that’s when I decided to go on social media like Instagram and eventually create my own website www.tintofmint.com.

DT:
I read on your website that all of the clothes presented are designed and made by yours. Really?
(it’s cool and I really like your style!)

KAROLINA:
Yes and thank you! When I started, I was posting only my makes, but now I mix it with some beauty, travel or simply Lookbook posts to give my followers a variety.

DT:
Do you accept orders for individual tailoring?

KAROLINA:
No, I don’t accept any individual tailoring orders. That is not something I want to do. I mostly make clothes for myself or eventually for my friends/ family.

DT:
What fashion era inspires you most?

KAROLINA:
I think the era we live right now is the most exciting one. Nowadays designers mix fashion with absolutely everything and the outcome is much more inspiring for me than any other fashion era.

DT:
Blogging (self-hosted or Instagram) is your main activity? (I mean income-generating activities)

KAROLINA:
No, I work full time as a Model & E-commerce Assistant for a clothing company. It’s hard to combine those two things together sometimes, as Blogging requires a lot of time and attention, but at the moment I’m somehow managing it.

DT:
Did you create your website by oneself or did you have to hire a webmaster (web designer or programmer)?

KAROLINA:
I have created the website by myself and buying Squarex theme definitely helped as there wasn’t much things I would want to change. I’m also lucky my boyfriend is a Web Developer and he has helped me a little with some adjustments.

DT:
Your website is powered on WordPress with the premium theme Squarex by DinevThemes. Why did you choose this Theme?

KAROLINA:
I wanted my blog to look clean and simple with a main focus on photos. I like the aesthetics of Instagram app with square pictures and barely any text so when I found Squarex theme I just love it and I decided to go for the premium version.

DT:
Was it easy for you to customize this Theme?

KAROLINA:
Yes, it’s really easy to customize this theme, although I wish there were even more options to customize certain sections.

DT:
What is your experience of the support from DinevThemes?

KAROLINA:
I had a few issues with my website/ theme during the past two years and I always received fast response from DinevThemes. Your customer service is really fast and helpful.

DT:
As I saw on your blog, you like to travel, right? What three countries would you like to visit next and why these countries?

KAROLINA:
Oh yes, I love to travel. There are so many places I want to visit, but my top three would be Australia, USA or Mexico. Every place I’ve been to was in Europe and I would love to reach out further on my next trip.

DT:
In conclusion, your wishes to those who are thinking about starting their own business online or own blog.

KAROLINA:
I would say, do it! No matter at what stage are you at, if you like it and have a passion for it you should make those thoughts come true.

DT:
Karolina, thank you very much for answering the questions. It was interesting and fun! :)
