When did you start blogging?
I’m fairly new to blogging and my blog is actually 1 years old this month. Happy Birthday to my little Blog!
Why did you start blogging?
I was always spending my time reading other peoples blogs and I missed having creative freedom. I wanted to make my busy life busier I guess, and maybe even inspire some people.
What if your favourite item of clothing that you own?
I thought this was a hard question but at second glance… of course my leather jacket. Staple wardrobe piece that I think I’ll cherish forever.
Favourite high end and high street stores?
High End- Well it has to be Selfridges, it gives you a little bit of everything.
High Street- I always struggle between H&M and Zara, I think I’ll have t pick both because well I can’t decide.
Do you have any hobbies outside of blogging?
Does spending too much money and watching the Kardashians on repeat count?
What was your latest purchase?
A Diary actually. You can never be too organised!
Who is your blogging inspiration?
As far as inspiration goes, I’m not sure. I follow a lot of blogs which inspire my fashion mostly,I love Sammy Maria (The Beauty Crush). I also love smaller blogs that are a little less about fashion and more about life, one I have found recently is- All about Annie https://allaboutanniesite.wordpress.com/blog/.
What are your blogging tips and advice?
I have 4 main tips:
Don’t care too much what others think, care a little bit but don’t let what others think stop you. Whether it’s a blogging post your unsure about or whether it’s starting blogging in the first place. If your gut says do it, then what you waiting for?
Use your blog as a tool, spread your message and do good.
Plan, Blogging is hard and you don’t realise it until you start it much like other things I Guess. It’s time consuming, especially when you’re a perfectionist like myself.
