BABE OF THE WEEK: BARBARA INES
Meet our blogger babe of the week, Barbara Ines.
She’s a Portuguese-based blogger whose Instagram account we’re seriously stalking RN. We caught up with her to chat blogging top tips, Snapchat stalking and got the skinny on her ultimate summer playlist…
How long have you been blogging for?
How did you get into it?
My friends always talked about my style and my way of dressing, so I decided to create a blog where I always show my outfit of the day, but I never thought that one day it would become professional and right now, I’m so happy working on the blog hehe, I just love it.
How do you keep your content fresh?
I try to shoot with different outfits every day
What’s your top tip for anyone looking to start a blog?
Be sure that your photos have quality and aesthetic sense; simple, clear and beautiful web design; love what you wear and share that love of fashion with your followers in your own personal way 🙂
What’s your go-to outfit?
I think the best outfit you can wear to any occasion is a playsuit or jumpsuit. It’s one piece only, easy to wear and you don’t have to worry about what to wear them with.
How do you shoot the perfect OOTD?
First I think about the vibe and the colours of the outfit, and then I think about the place to shoot. I need to find the perfect spot that relates and connects to the clothes I’m going to shoot.
How do you edit your photos?
For the blog, only on Photoshop. For Instagram I first use SnapSeed, then VSCO Cam and finally FaceTune.
Snapchat or Instagram?
Who’s account gives you major Insta envy?
Maybe Debi Flugge @debiflue, but I follow many Instagram accounts that I consider an inspiration for me.
Who should we be following on Snapchat?
Which emoji do you use the most?

Lorde – Tennis Court (Flume Remix)
Nelly ft Jeremih – The Fix
