Please tell us about yourself and how you got into modeling and blogging?
We are Julia and Stephanie Baessler, are 23 years old and live near Vienna. We study law and doing sports and living a healthy lifestyle have always been important for us.
We got into modeling at 18 years, when a photographer booked us for a shooting and we did our job very well.
Due to that, other photographers kept an eye on us and we got more and more jobs.
At about the same time, we started blogging on our Instagram accounts (julia on instagram / stephanie on instagram).
We shared our pictures and experiences and people started to get interested in us.
Inspiring and motivating others has always been a passion for us.
In 2014 we started with youtube and a few months ago from now, we finally started running our own blog www.baesslertwins.com.
What inspired you to start your blog?
On Instagram you can’t share detailed recipes, workout tips etc.
So we thought it would be a great idea if we wrote them down somewhere else.
Running our own blog has always been a little dream of us and we are really excited to share some more detailed posts with you.
What is the focus of your blog and why did you choose that niche?
The focus is on living a healthy lifestyle, feeling confident in your body and enjoying life.
We love to inspire others and help them reaching their goals. Fitness is our passion and due to that,
we want to motivate people living the same healthy lifestyle.
How would you describe your personal style and is there a person who is a fashion inspiration to you?
We like summer dresses, hot pants, skinny jeans and crop tops. Since we have a preference for metal and rock music,
we also love to wear leather jackets and studs. We love loud colors, especially in the summer.
The only difference in our personal preferences is that Stephanie doesn’t like the color pink and Julia doesn’t like bright green. 😀
When we’re at the gym, we like our cloths sporty. We don’t really mind if the colors we wear match or if we look stylish.
The cloths should be comfortable; they have to feel good and fit well.
Is blogging your profession or just a hobby?
It’s a mixture of both.
How much time do you spend blogging?
We attach importance on posting daily on our Instagram accounts. It always takes some time to write the caption,
make the pictures look as we like it and also write back to the comments and messages we receive from our followers.
It really depends on if we have to shoot a video, write a detailed blogpost or just have to post a picture. 🙂
How do you manage time to run your blog efficiently?
The right time management is literally everything.
We study law, work as fitness models and also want to spend as much time as possible with our family and friends, so our timetable is always quiet full.
If we want to write a little more detailed about a topic, we plan these posts a few days earlier so everything works as planned.
But when you’ve been blogging for a longer period you’ll see that things will get easier and easier and blogging will become a part of your life.
Who takes the majority of your photos?
Most of the picture are taken by ourselves. Taking photos has always been a passion of us but also has been modeling.
We often get booked for photo shootings and also love to share the results. When we are with our boyfriends,
they have to take over the part and do some shots of us, too. 😀
How do you want to improve yourself in the next year?
We want to get faster, stronger and better 😀
Currently we are studying law in vienna. We definitely want to finish the course within the next semesters.
Of course we want to improve our social media presence too and motivate, inspire and help more and more people. 🙂
What advice would you have for someone who is just starting with their first blog?
Just be who you are – write about your passions and things you love, about your experiences and know-how.
Maybe you have some tips you would like to share. Do not just focus on one specific theme – write about all the things you have in mind. 🙂
How can readers of the blog get in touch with you?
The best way is writing an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
How often do you visit the gym?
We started lifting weights a few months ago. Before hitting the gym we did our workouts at home.
We visit the gym about three times a week and on the other days we do some workouts at home or rest.
Do you always workout together?
When we hit the gym we always train together and help each other. When we are doing workouts at home we mostly train alone.
Do your partners also lift?
Stephanies boyfriend is an IFBB mens physique athlete and when she’s at his, they often train together.
Julias boyfriend works as a DJ. He is not interested in working out or hitting the gym.
What’s your favorite snack?
Phuuu thats a real hard question – we loooove many kinds of snacks. 😀
We always need a midnight night before we go to bed. Something sweet and high in protein is perfect – for example curd with vanilla casein or a proteinbar.
Sometimes we even bake a midnight-cheesecake 😀
We love eating small snacks all over the day. Every kind of fruit, nuts or a bowl of cornflakes with almond milk is just the right thing when we are craving for something sweet during the day 🙂
What’s one of the most interesting shoots that you’ve done?
Once we had a shooting with african ostriches – that was a lot of fun! 🙂
We also shooted with caimans, which was a very exciting experience, too.
We love to take extraordinary photos and are always interested in doing new things.
A few years ago we also had a photoshoot, where we posed underwater with a big water pipe. 😀
What do you do in your downtime?
Honestly we don`t have much downtime. University takes a lot of time, so mostly we are studying.
We are doing many photo shootings, video rotations and promotion jobs. Furthermore we both run a long-distance relationship.
We both have to drive about five-six hours to see our boyfriends. We love meeting friends, go shopping or going out.
Our family is also very important to us, we try to manage to see them as often as possible.
We are focused on doing sports at least three times a week and, of course, blogging takes much time in demanding, too.
As you can see – there is always something to do, but thats exactly what we like. 🙂
“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.” (Steve Jobs) – that’s exactly how it is 🙂
Where is your favorite place to travel?
That‘s a real hard decision to make. We love traveling all over the world.
Last year we went together to Las Vegas and Los Angeles. We love exploring new places and meeting new people.
A few weeks ago we were in Fuerteventura. Deserted, long, white sand beaches, turquoise water and hot air – that was really a place where we could have stayed longer. 🙂
What is one question nobody has ever asked you—that you wish they asked you?
„Can I invite you to an all-u-can-eat sushi Restaurante ?“ 😀
