So INfleur is being extra generous this week! Yet another interview but this time extra special. We interviewed Yasmine, a gorgeous Moroccan- Belgian Fashion & Beauty Influencer. On Instagram, she’s simply @iamyasssss. Yass is a great cook as well as a freak in the fashion world. She describes herself as a Belgian OG. Her photos would blow your mind away! Plus when it comes to makeup & beauty, yassss! She’s a pro! Let’s take a short walk into Yass’ world and explore her charm…
INfleur: What is your most valued belonging?
Yass: My most valued belonging is, at this moment, my camel Céline trousers, which are super highwaisted and oversized.
INfleur: Favorite fashion brand in the world
Yass: This question is very hard to answer because I have big love for high end brands like Chanel and Balenciaga but also big love for brands like Zara and H&M.
“My salmon terriyaki with mashed potatoes are the bomb!”
INfleur: Name one influencer within your space who inspires you.
Yass: Most definitely Oumayma Boumeshouli. She’s one big creative with Moroccan roots, just like me. I just love how she stands for diversity and creativity. And let’s be honest, her Instagram feed is to die for!
INfleur: Anything else you wanted to be aside a blogger?
Yass: A creative director, it’s still one of my goals so that’s why I organize shoots and just be my own personal creative director for my Instagram haha!
Interview with Yasmine
INfleur: So far, is blogging as you imagined it? Or better? Or worse? Why?
Yass: Since I’m one of the OG’s here in Belgium, I at first, didn’t imagine blogging would turn out to be like this. It’s a great opportunity for me to express myself online and to just be creative and getting beautiful opportunities that I get to experience with friends.
From a very shy girl who didn’t really know how to start conversations, I have now become a confident woman.
INfleur: Have you started a family? If so, share any challenges you have with balancing that with work.
If not, do you have plans of starting one…how soon ;)?
Yass: I still haven’t but when I do, I would just incorporate my kids into the fashion industry I guess, lol! Putting them in cute clothes and keep on taking pictures together.
INfleur: Tell us about one favorite childhood memory.
Yass: Each summer-break, we went on vacation to Morocco. I just remember how my cousins and I wanted to go out but having to deal with a very strict parents. So we always made little sneaky plans to still go out. Sometimes they worked out, sometimes they didn’t and we got caught, auwtch haha!
INfleur: What meal do you enjoy and cook best?
Yass: My salmon terriyaki with mashed potatoes are the bomb! Luckily everybody loves my food.
INfleur: Who is your celebrity crush?
Yass: I don’t really have a celebrity crush but let’s be honest, Kim Kardashian West is killing the fashion game lately.
INfleur: Share with us your worst experience of last year.
Yass: My worst experience was that there was a moment where I fell into a little depression. I felt like doing nothing, no inspiration for nothing and I just felt alone, even though I was surrounded by lovely friends and family.
I didn’t imagine blogging would turn out to be like this. It’s a great opportunity for me to express myself online.
INfleur: What is your top goal for the year 2018?
Yass: To grow! Not only in numbers but on a personal level. I have come from a very shy girl who didn’t really know how to start conversations. But now I have become a confident woman who stands up for herself and that’s one goal I would like to continue to have.
