Chill With The Moptop and Travel With Nora

Jul 22, 2011 By Vaneza

Once again it’s Friday and our readers are in for a special treat…Not one Weekend Read, but two! Meet our new fashion blogging friends below.

We first chat with Tonya of “The Moptop“. Her style, like her blog, is vintage meets boho.
Where are you based location wise?
I currently live in Spokane, Washington.
How did you decide to start a blog? And where did the idea for it’s name come from?
I originally started looking online at clothing and stumbled upon Free People’s Blog. I immediately fell in love, and I started finding more personal style blogs. Eventually, I decided I wanted to try one out for my own style, and I have so much fun with it now. The name actually comes from the nickname many people call The Beatles. They are my favorite band, and my hair is definitely a moptop most days.
Are you a full-time blogger or do you have a 9-5?
I work in retail right now while I’m going to school to pursue a career in Fashion Merchandising/Marketing, so blogging is really just a fun hobby for me as of now.
Sum up your personal style in 5 words or less.
Boho, Edgy, & Unique.

What is your perfect or ideal weekend like?
My idea of a perfect weekend is spending time with my family, boyfriend, or friends and having a good time together! I love making memories and going on new adventures. So whether that involves going thrifting, nature walking, or making lunch together; it all would be an amazing weekend for me.

Now we travel to Russia to talk to model/blogger Eleonora about her blog “Nora’s Trip“. Follow her along on her modeling adventures!
Where are you based location wise?
I was born and live in Russia in Siberia.


How did you decide to start a blog? And where did the idea for it’s name come from?
Last year, I took part as a model in a photographer’s blog in Russia. Then I decided to try international modeling and I realized that I can make my own blog and I can write not only about some trends, designers, or looks, but I can tell people about how to be a model and how does it feel to work abroad. I realized that each country has its own special features of fashion, so I will make posts about modeling in the country [I work in]. My next trip is to South Korea, so I will make a lot of posts about modeling in Seoul. My name is Eleonora and for foreign people its very hard to say, so I made it short, just Nora. That’s how I got a name for my blog: Nora’s trip.
Are you a full-time blogger or do you have a 9-5?
My work is periodic, I can’t be a full-time blogger, but the idea of the blog is to write about international modeling, so I am a full-time blogger when going abroad…So it can sound like [I'm a] full-time blogger.
Sum up your personal style in 5 words or less.
Casual. Shirt. Blazer. Heels. Bright lipstick.


What is your perfect or ideal weekend like?
I would spend my perfect weekend with my friends on the beach. I adore the sea and my friends, so picnic on the beach it is perfect combination.

Sounds great! And that’s a wrap, be sure to check out The Moptop and Nora’s Trip. You can also follow them both on Twitter at @TonyaTheMoptop and @Eleonora_R!
