Images via; Il Etait un Fois

Despite having the same first name, Bianca Nardo has been one of my favourite bloggers for some time now. Perhaps it her style, which reminds me of aspects i create into my own looks, or maybe its the naturally tanned European skin we both have, or perhaps even that we love the same shade of MAC lipstick that gives us something in common. Whatever it is, her blog 'Il Etait Un Fois' (meaning once upon a time) is one not to be missed. If you love LOVER OF THE KING, you will love Bianca's blog as i think it shares some common aspects of style and fashion. I had the great pleasure of interviewing this chicki babe earlier on this year, and she seemed like such a sweet natured and easy going girl to know, and she was so eager to answer any annoying questions i had coming her way.
So here it is; an interview with Bianca Nardo from 'Il Etait Un Fois':
