Hi! I'm Sonia Verardo and "Trench Collection" is my blog, my beauty & fashion diary.
My blog is all about enhancing your natural beauty and feeling good about yourself and I hope I manage to transfer that to my readers through my little beauty & make up tips or product reviews!
The fashion aspect of this blog is what excites me the most, to me personally, fashion is just a big game, a way to be creative & a way to express yourself.
When it comes to fashion, there isn't right or wrong, I'm just playing my game...
My goal is to inspire my readers with my personal style.
I believe that money can't buy style and that you can be trendy, stylish and look your best, without spending a fortune!
This is the message I want to spread to the world :)
My blog is also about my personal life...
I'm Croatian, but I have been living in Italy for almost eleven years now.
Since my early twenties, I have travelled & lived in a different places around Europe...this has infuenced my lifestyle and I think it's something interesting & fun to write about!
BLOG UPDATE (Aug. 28th, 2017.): You might have noticed that, since I became a Mum, my blog has been moving into a slightly different direction...Well, I started my blog a very long time ago (has it been 7 or 8 years now?), and it never started as exclusively fashion blog, but it had a mixture of everything (fashion, beauty, lifestyle...)
A few years ago, I started posting mostly outfit photos and my blog was taking almost exclusively that fashion direction. I got to work with numerous fashion brands and I'm not going to lie, I loved it.
Some really cool outfits and fashion posts were created in that period.
But since I gave birth to my precious boy this January, taking outfit photos has been pretty much impossible to me! I would try to "steal" a moment whenever we were out as a family, but those photos never looked as professional and put together as they used to (we used to go on a hunt for the perfect location, and my stylings were always carefully planed days ahead).
I don't say that I miss that, I'm just saying that, being used to delivering one type of content, it felt quite frustrating knowing that I took a step (or two) back in the quality of the content that I'm currently producing for you guys.
That's why I decided not to stress out about impossible situations, but to "adjust" my blog to my current lifestyle. As I truly enjoy being a Mum and I believe that my son is the greatest blessing in my life, I really want to share with you more of "Mum" related topics here, and tell you more about my & my son's journey :-)
You were already able to notice that I posted more beauty topics and reviews in the past week, and I'm planing to continue in this direction.
So from now on, there'll be lots of more beauty topics, lifestyle and Mum & baby related topics! Of course, fashion is still my love, so I'm going to try and surprise you with an outfit post whenever I can, and also "New In/ Haul" type of posts.
Since I'm doing this blog update, I also wanted to be honest and straightforward with you and let you know that sponsored posts and "wish lists" are also welcome here on my blog, as they're giving me the possibility to earn some extra $$$ to invest in my blog/ youtube and to provide better quality content for you. This is the only reason I say yes to those type of posts, as every single $ earned, I like to invest in my blogging/ vlogging. However, I always state, at the bottom of the post, when it's sponsored.
If you would like to contact me, you can email me here:
or you can just leave me a comment.
I always reply back!
Thanks for reading & share the love!
