8 things you didn't know about Miriam from Miriamsblok

Miriam from Miriamsblok is an amazing lady we truly admire. She is a role model, advocating self-love (and shoe love of course!) and inspiring women to love themselves, be thankful for their bodies and respect them. She recently participated in a bold campaign where she put her standing regarding the issue of body shaming, low self-esteem, and different body types. You can find the video here.
We met up with Miriam the other day for a coffee & talk and a little photo session. During a good chat, we asked her a few questions which turned into a great interview material! We talked about everything from shoes to self-love. Here's the outcome and we hope you'll love it as much as we do. Again, Miriam - you have all our respect, lady! miriamsblok
1. What is the best advice you ever received? To let go of people who take more than they give. Every relationship should be equal in the bigger picture.

2. When was the last time you were proud of yourself? I just posed in my underwear for the second time in a year in the name of body acceptance. I'm a plus size woman, so I obviously don't have a slim model's body, but I do believe it's important that we see diversity in the media so even though it was a bit of a challenge for me, I embraced the opportunity to "walk the walk" and not just talk the talk.

3. What is your dearest pair of shoes and why? Probably my first pair of Louboutins. Just because it's such an iconic brand. They absolutely kill my feet, and I can't walk more than 100 meters in them but they're stunning!

4. Do you have a fun shoe-story or memory? My sister once had a pair of boots she loved. After a few years, they broke and couldn't get fixed. She only knew the brand and how they looked but she was so sad that her favorite boots were gone. I spent weeks on the internet trying to identify the style of her boots and when I finally did, I spent even longer trying to track down another pair in her size. I finally managed to locate a pair on auction on eBay. It was possibly my greatest shoe find ever!

5. What does being feminine mean to you? High heels, lipstick and accentuating the parts of my body I'm really happy with.

6. What’s your secret to balancing work and family? Well, considering I'm single I don't really have anyone complaining that I work all the time. It's a pretty good deal, actually! :)

7. What would you wish more people knew about you? That I get really nervous meeting new people so I don't ramble quite as much once you get to know me!

8. What do you love about roccamore shoes? The ease, the comfort, the elegance. They are such beautiful shoes that I can actually wear for an entire night out without always having to look for a place to sit down because my feet are killing me. It's kind of genius.
