Blogger Spotlight: La Caja Oxidada/ The Rusty Box

What makes a blogger special I wonder? For me it’s feeling like you know the person, like their posts jump right off the screen and into your heart, and maybe like you’d like to hang out with the blogger in real life. One of these people for me, who I recently discovered, is Enid Rebecca of “La Caja Oxidada/ The Rusty Box”

Que hace un blogger especial me pregunto? Para mi es sentir que uno conoce a la persona, como que sus palabras saltan de la pagina y adentro de tu corazón, y talves sentir que uno quisiera pasar un rato con el o ella. Una de estas personas para mi que recientemente descubro es Enid Rebecca de “La Caja Oxidada”/ “The Rusty Box”

One of the primary reasons I began blogging was because I was inspired by other amazing bloggers like Rumi Neely of Fashiontoast, Tavi Gevinson of The Style Rookie, and Jules of Sincerely Jules. These bloggers have definitely shaped my blogging pursuits.

There are so many lesser known but equally talented bloggers however, so this is why I’m starting a new feature called “Blogger Spotlight”, and Enid Rebecca is my first pick! Her blog caught my eye due to the care and love Enid puts into her artfully crafted blog posts. Her style is mystical, whimsical, vintage, and ultimately all her own. 🙂

Here are some questions I asked her: ( I’ve translated her answers from English to Spanish because Spanish is her native language, as she is from Spain)

1. What is your blog’s theme?

De que se trata tu blog?

For me, my blog is a precious miscellaneous archive. Because in it, I place everything that I like. In my blog you can find works of art, fashion, film, drawings, inspiration, and everything else.

El blog, para mí, es un precioso archivo de carácter misceláneo. Porque en él guardo todo lo que me gusta. En el blog, puedes encontrar: obras de arte, moda, cine, anécdotas, dibujos, inspiraciones y todo lo demás.

2. How did you decide to begin blogging and what inspired you to do so?

In a natural progression, as a continuation from my old Myspace account. It was born as a form of self expression and a means to explore my creativity.

¿Cómo decidiste empezar tu blog y qué te hico querer empezarlo?

De manera natural, como una continuación de mi antiguo Myspace. Nació como una forma de expresarme y de explorar en mi creatividad.

3. Who are your style icons?

Well…my favorites will remain; musicians that have appeared in film. Like Eva Green from The Dreamers or Cracks, Mia Wasikowska in Stoker, Emma Stone in Magic in the Moonlight, Florence Welch and Natasha Khan in their videos. There are so many: Karen Elson, Alexis Bledel, Audrey Horne, Jane Birkin, Francoise Hardy, Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johanson, Zooey Deschanel, Amy Adams, Audrey Hepburn, Jean Shrimpton…and in terms of boys, many many more.

I like her answer! I can totally relate.

Me encanta su respuesta! Me identifico mucho.

¿Cuáles son tus ídolos de estilo?
Pues… Me quedo con los personajes del cine-cantantes.
Como Eva Green en The Dreamers o Cracks, Mia Wasikowska en Stoker, Emma Stone en Magic in the Moonlight, Florence Welch o Natasha Khan en sus videoclips. Son tantas: Karen Elson, AlexisBledel, Audrey Horne, Jane Birkin, Francoise Hardy, Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johanson, Zooey Deschanel, Amy Adams, Audrey Hepburn, Jean Shrimpton,… y de chicos otros muchos más.

4. How would you describe your style?

I think one of the primary words I’d choose to define my style would be “naif”, but it varies depending on how I feel on a given day: retro-vintage, bohemian, boho, handmade, pastel, comfortable, romantic, sweet…

¿Cómo describes tu estilo?
Creo que una de las primeras palabras que elegiría para definir mi estilo sería “naíf”, pero también otras en diferentes medidas y según como me sienta ese día: retro-vintage, bohemio, boho, hadmade, pastel, cómodo, romántico, dulce…

Enid’s amazing style and balancing skills. El maravilloso estilo y equilibrio de Enid.

5. What inspires you day to day?

Nature inspires me (the beach where I live), my cats, movies, TV series, books, previous decades, other blogs like Hannah Kristina Metz’s, music, delicious tea, beautiful cities, photography, social media networks like Pinterest and Instagram. There are so many beautiful things to be inspired by, that it is difficult to make one choice.

¿Qué te inspira día a día?

Me inspira la naturaleza (la playa donde vivo), mis gatos, películas, series, libros, épocas pasadas, otros blogs como el de Hannah Kristina Metz, la música, un delicioso té, ciudades bonitas, la fotografía, y redes sociales como Pinterest o Instagram. Hay tantas cosas bellas para inspirarse, qué es difícil hacer una selección.

6.  What would you like to achieve via your blog?

For me, blogging is more than a hobby, because I dedicate so much time to it. Like I mentioned to you in the beginning, it is like an archive to store everything that I fall in love with. I intend to have it all stored up, like a book of life. I’d also like to share this with everyone to show the bubble in which I live. In conclusion, my special world.

¿Qué quieres conseguir con tu blog?
Para mí el blog es algo más que un pasatiempo, por lo que dedico mucho tiempo en él. Como te comenté al principio es como un archivo para guardar todo aquello que me enamora. Pretendo tener todo guardadito, casi como un libro de vida. Bueno y compartirlo con todos, enseñar la burbuja donde vivo. En definitiva, mi especial mundo.

Enid is an incredibly interesting blogger and person, who I intend to continue following and supporting. I highly recommend her blog! Check it out: http://www.lacajaoxidada-therustybox.com and Facebook.com/lacajaoxidada.
