Meet Isabella, a Miista Instagram star. She says you can call her Belly. It seems thoroughly appropriate. Even though she doesn't really have a belly she says she's a greedy eater. We have to give it to her - she does take beautiful pictures of food! You know we love introducing super cool people that wear Miista. Since Belly is such a sweetheart - I mean, she volunteers with animals! - it was obvious what we had to do when we came across her account. Check out our lil interview with her below and follow her on Instagram here
. We seem to be pretty into people from Singapore these days. Tell us about some of the coolest places to shop there? What’s the best thing about living in Singapore?
Because of my small stature, I do most of my shopping at the mall. Having said that, there are, however, quite a few local boutiques that sell pretty unique stuff in Singapore. Haji Lane houses a few of these boutiques and P.V.S is my go-to store for kickass shoes. The best thing about living in Singapore is that food is everywhere, every corner, every street. You don't find food, food finds you (which is the perfect place to be for a glutton like me). How old are you?
I am 22 going on 23. What do you do? And more importantly, what are you about (if its not the same thing)?
I build events for a living. As much as I like the satisfaction behind it, my dream has always been to retire in a quaint cafe with a couple of dogs by my side. I love animals, dogs in particular. Thus whenever I'm free, I help out at an organisation called "Lost Paws" - an online adoption portal that also reconnects missing dogs with their owners. Do you have any people, bloggers, IG users or magazines that inspire you? In terms of fashion and the things that you do?
I absolutely adore Olivia Palermo, she can do no wrong if you ask me! Besides Olivia, I'd say the Olsen twins as well. Though I grew up watching them on tv, it is however their effortless and minimalistic style that captivates me. In my spare time, Kinfolk's my companion. Which designers or fashion companies do you like and why (don’t worry – you don’t have to say Miista)?
Phillip Lim and Alexander Wang definitely! However, I am a firm believer that one does not need to be clad in designer labels from head to toe to look good. Thus I shop mostly at Zara, Topshop and COS, their clothes are stylish and not to mention affordable. You take great IG pictures! Is this a good eye and a hobby, or is there more to it?
Why thank you! It is definitely a hobby that I have started taking pretty seriously in the past months. I put quite a substantial amount of thought (perhaps more than I should) into the filter, the brightness, the clarity and hue of each picture. Not only do I try to make the individual pictures pretty, how the pictures complement each other matters to me as well. My favourite app has got to be Afterlight! If you could ever read and watch only one book and film again, which ones would you choose?
Harry Potter, Harry Potter, Harry Potter. Who doesn't love magic? It also takes me to a place far away from reality, I can be quite a dreamer sometimes. Anything else you’d like to add?
I am truly humbled to have been given this opportunity to share a little bit about myself in this lovely space. Thank you Miista! On a side note, Imsogettingthatgoregousavablackspeckleomg. x
