Kaja-Marie, a 26 year old fashionista, influencer and social media addict living in Oslo.
I grew up in Fredrikstad, and when I was 19 I decided to move to Oslo and study Marketing at BI Norwegian Business School. My bachelors degree is specialized on strategic brand building and social media. I started working when I was 16 years old, in a shoe store called Kriho shoes & bags in Fredrikstad. I guess my shoe and bag addiction started there. When I moved to Oslo I started working as a part time at Lindex, and once I finished school I got a full time job at Høyer. For one and a half year I worked there with brands such as Isabel Marant, Iro, Alexander Wang, Helmut Lang, Phillip Lim and lots of other international brands.
In December 2014 I started working as a Digital Media Manager for Steen & Strøm Department Store. I feel so lucky that I get to do the two things I love most in life (besides my man and my family) for a living, social media and fashion. Every day I work closely with the head offices of big international brands such as Gucci, Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren, By Malene Birger, Max Mara, Sandro Paris, Maje and a lot more.
I started my blog kajamarie.com in February 2011, and I have blogged almost every day since. My blog is mostly about fashion, but personal life, career, travels and work out is also a small part of it. The main objective of this blog is to spread positivity and inspiration. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy it!
In april 2016 I started my own YouTube channel, with focus on the same as on my blog; fashion, travel, beauty and lifestyle.
