Blogger of the Week

Sorry its late guys but this weekend has been manic!! Seriously! Match day was busy, long and tiring. Then driving to oxford on Sunday was fun with the road works on most of the motorway! Argh so never got a post in this weekend. Sorry! But it is lovely to be staying one of my besties and another of my bridesmaid!

Anywhoo! Here is last weeks Blogger of the week. The lovely Valencia from 'Roll up your sleeve'. She is a really awesome fun girl, with great fashion sense.

1. Name, age and current location.
My name is Valencia Lia Yip and I'm 19 this year. Ohhh, Valencia is my real name given to me by my parents and in my ID card. Ahaha because people do think its a name I gave myself. Living in the sunny island of Singapore.

2. Describe yourself in one sentence?
I'm fun loving, silly at times and I'm a great listener to your problems.

3. Explain why you named you blog 'Roll up your sleeve'?
Hmmm, there isn't really a real reason on my blog name. I actually wanted to use this name on my other blog site I did with my close friend. But we didn't use it in the end. So I took it under my wing and the blog was born.
4. How long have you been blogging and why did you take it up?
I've been blogging for 3months now I think. I actually have been reading lots of fashion blog for a long time now. But then I was just browsing through their daily style. And on day, it just dawn on me that I could go the same! That's when I knew I need to start blogging too.

5. How would you describe your style?
Surely a mix of vintage with a touch of modern vibe. You'll be able to find me in any kind of clothing. I love dresses, but I love my leggings and pants too! And huge lover of the 60s era too.
6. What's you favourite part about blogging?
The best thing so far is receiving such lovely comments and support everyday. I've never thought it would turn out to be like this. As well as the friends I've made now, its just really been amazing in all.

7. Where is your favourite place to shop?
Its either etsy or ebay. Sometimes some online vintage stores. I hardly shop in local/chain stores around here. So its online shopping I do a lot.
8. What's your top tip for anyone who wanted to start blogging.
Never ever give up!! Even at the start,you feel like no one is reading. Just hang on there,and all will just fall into place:)

9. What's your most prized possession?
This is a tough one. Hmmm, I guess it would have to be my vintage Valentino oversized black blazer. I bought it about a year or so back at a local vintage store. They were have clearance sales at that time, so I got it at a really good deal. Its so precious to me.
10. What's your favourite flower?
I'm a really big roses girl, but my favorite would have to be lavender. They smell so so nice.

(my computer won't let me upload photos!! On a weak connection as my friend hasn't got proper internet yet, so promise to upload photos when I get home. It also means I can't do my Alphabet city posts properly either so they will have to wait till I get home on Thursday, sorry guys! UPDATE: Managing to upload photos, as you can now see! lol! They are just really slow going up!)

As always pics are Valencia's fav outfits! I adore her vintage white dress, its amazing!
