As an outlet for her fashion, food, and travel infatuation, Euriental is Kamara Harding’s way of documenting her personal style and travel experiences. The name comes from her unique background, a mix of half English and half Chinese. As a third-culture kid, Kamara has lived in England, Nigeria, Austria, Hong Kong, and Shanghai. We recently caught up via email between her busy travel schedule:
What Made You Start Euriental?
The enjoyment of creating something that takes time, effort and creativity. I’ve been blogging, like many others, since the Livejournal days and it just progressed naturally. Besides, my memory is pretty awful, so I like to have written & photographic accounts of my travels and experiences!
What Keeps You Motivated To Work On The Website?
When I get positive feedback on something I am proud of or when a brand I like expresses interest, it makes me feel like I’m doing something right.
Where Do You Get Your Fashion Inspiration?
Other blogs, Vogue and street style.
How Would You Describe Your Personal Style?
Casual chic. I either dress very femininely or very laid-back (aka jeans and loafers).
Any Other Websites You Would Recommend That We Should Follow?
How Do You Pick The Right Jewelry For An Outfit?
It depends on the colours. If my outfit is bright or loud, I keep accessories to a minimum. If colours are neutral (beige, blush, dusty pink), I opt for simple, delicate pieces, such as a thin rose gold necklace. With all black, you can go a bit bolder.
Dog Or Cat?
Impossible to choose! I really want an exotic shorthair, but I have grown up with dogs and they are impossible not to love.
