A LITTLE ABOUT ME

My name is Armina Mevlani. Many of you know me from my TV shows, others as the girl who represented Albania in Miss World and some as the Creative Director of a magazine for almost three years, time in which I wrote many articles on fashion and other domains. But, there are also some of you who do not know me and I want to leave out what I have done so far, not because I do not find it agreeable; on the contrary, it helped me become who I am, but because this blog is the beginning of a new chapter in my life and I want to share new things with all of you.

My blog is called “Rebel Heart” due to the fact that in my rebel teen years I used to refer to myself as a rebel heart. I also wished to make it a tattoo, but my parents wouldn’t allow me to. Today I decided to personalize it by naming my blog after it. It all came naturally to me and all those who know me, know what “rebel heart” means to me. Rebel Heart is me.

I find myself in those women every time I go back on those years and get excited while wishing I could have lived in their time and wishing I was them because they were the real women. They made history with their beauty, but…
