London Fashion Hunter celebrates Half a Year!

It has been six months since I've started writing this blog sharing my own views about fashion and suggesting different art and photography exhibitions to nourish our mind. But today it's all about you!

Once I was told by a senior magazine editor that nowadays people don't want to read, they just want to see images and it's true in a way, our attention span is shorter and shorter because our minds are overloaded with information bombarding us everywhere, particularly in a big city like London.

So each blog post is illustrated in a way that is not too challenging to read and the layout is as spacious as possible. Surprisingly my most popular posts are about exhibitions, which sadly most magazines refer to in just one or two sentences.

Other popular posts include fashion, from jewellery to the pencil skirt and of all the books I've been writing about only one made it to the top 10 - about Manolo Blahnik by Camilla Morton. You also love lifestyle posts so I should definitely party more often!

To celebrate half a year of existence, I've asked 10 questions via social media to get to know a bit more about you and today the best answers are published. Thank you all for your cooperation!
