Feature: Marmalade

Here come my first feture post! For this one I wanted to make an interview with Victoria Villasana over at Marmalade. I find her a lovely girl who takes great photos and is a big inspiration! She gave me free hands to chose from her photos at the blog and the result from that and the interview is presented below. Enjoy...
What is your name and where are you from?
My name is Victoria Villasana and I’m from Guadalajara, Mexico.
When and why did you start your blog?
I started this blog because last year was a difficult year for me and having this blog was a way to empty a lot of feelings and a way to clean my mind and start something new in my life, meet and share with people the things I love doing all the things that flow in me. I was working for an IT company but now I’m just going to focus 100% in my own personal projects so I’m very happy about that.


How would you describe your style?
Vintage, boyish and timeless.

Where do you get inspiration for your style and your photos?
London, Mexico, books, movies, magazines, old photographs, nature.

What kind of program do you use to retouch your photos?
Photoshop mainly and sometimes Toy Camera Analogcolor is a Japanese software for a vintage effect.


Do you have any other passions besides fashion and photography?
My family, any form of art and food.

I know you are originally from Mexico, what made you move to the UK?
I came for holiday to London for first time when I was 19 years old and I loved it ever since and stayed then I meet my husband (He is English) and we have been together 8 years and we have a little boy.
Where is your favorite place in the world?
Anywhere with my husband and son.

Which book would you recommend everyone to read?
It’s hard to pick only one when is so many good ones but the books that came to my mind straight away were The Little Prince and Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse both very easy to read yet very great to open your mind to imagination and to believe in yourself.
What are your plans for the future?
Keep doing what I love, enjoying life and be happy.
