Hi there! First of all, I’d like to personally thank you for taking your time to get to know me better. While you read this send me a message. I’d love to connect with YOU! ♡
Alright, here we go. Foreverflow was my nickname a long with Florentinaa and Sparklingpurplecutie (Big LOL) back in the days, but I decided to go all ”brand-y” with my name so it would be easy and recognizable. My real name is Florentina and I am a 25 year old fashion designer, photographer and Youtube personality. Yeah, I’m a big nerd who have the looks of a blonde bimbo.
My internet history started at Youtube in 2009. I got bored making generations after generations in The Sims 2, and that’s when I discovered VIDEO. I made some sims musicvideos to popular songs, and back then my videos got connected to the artist’s official videos. Yeah, I gained a great foundation of viewers and subscribers that way. & a funny sidestory: I met my first bff through Youtube comments and the day I turned 18 I flew to The Netherlands to meet her in person for the first time.
When I was 16 I discovered Shane Dawson and some other Youtube personalities, and I was quickly drawn to that kind of videomaking. So I changed my video style from Sims musicvideos to throwing myself in front of the camera. At that time I couldn’t even speak english. My teacher had to send me on english courses in order to keep up with my classmates, lol. So I was BAD. But Youtube gave me motivation to never stop dreaming that someday I will be able to speak english fluently. I kept repeating EVERYTHING in the High School Musicial sequin, every line, every interview, literally everything. That way I would taste the words on my own tounge, which explains why I have a hint of American accent in my vocals today.
This is when I created a new Youtube channel Sparklingpurplecutie as my main channel and SPCflorentina as my bts and personal channel. (I was thinking big already, lol)
I stopped making Youtube videos in High School because it didn’t exactly help me get friends in real life. Lets face it, I was the weirdo on the internet who wore wigs and spoke english. I wanted to create a grown up version of myself, so I figured that creating a blog would be a great way to still be a internet weirdo but hopefully get accepted by the society. Florentinaa.blogg.no was my domain, and I was doing better than ever. My blog sky rocketed after one single post about body image. 80 000 unique visitors every day and I was suddenly #1 bloger in the entire country. That was a lot to take in and I was not prepared at all. And to be honest, it scared me. But I grabbed the opportunity, I kept on bloging but then I just disappeared . I’m still not sure WHY I logged off completely. I guess I thought this was just for fun, and when it was so overwhelming I just stepped away.
In 2017, I decided to get serious with the IG game. I purchased my first fullframe photography camera and I cracked the self portait code. I made a deal with myself to create high quality content every single day. I don’t have a bloger-friendly house so it pushed me into being creative. I shoot every time the forecast predicts good weather during the summer half of the year, and while it is winter I work on other stuff. I’ve had a huge self development last 6 months. I feel a lot better with what I’m sharing, and I will keep pushing myself into getting better.
TODAY, I’m sitting here with my three chihuahuas sleeping on my lap while I write my very first blog post in ages. I’m so excited to be back!
Thank you for getting to know me better.
Lots of love,
