How long have you been blogging?

I have been blogging for nearly 4 years now. I  took a break for about a year during my final year of university but I am back now and loving it more than ever!

Why did you decide to start your blog?

I was in my second year of university and I was about to apply for fashion design internships. It was incredibly competitive, especially in London so I knew that I needed something to stand out from most, and that extra dedication my fashion blog brought to my CV was just what I needed. I then had no reason to stop, being in London was amazing and I met so many people and had some fantastic opportunities through my blog. 

What do you hope to achieve for your blog in 2017?

I just hope that my blog can continue to grow in 2017. I am still getting back into it from my final year break and I would like to see the engagement back up again, like it was before. And I mainly just want to enjoy it like I am doing!

What is your favourite social media channel & why?

I really like Instagram, it is so easy to post a single picture and interact with other like minded people. As my blog is mainly focused on visuals, I think Instagram is definitely the best platform for me and definitely the most enjoyable.

Who is your blogging inspiration?

Ahh, that is such a hard question as there are so many people I admire. I would probably have to say Victoria from In The Frow as I have pretty much followed her from the beginning when she was posting pictures of her outfits in her bedroom, and now she is a high end luxury fashion blogger who jet sets all over the world. She puts her all into her blog and works so hard, she deserves every success in the world.

What is the one piece of advice you’d give other bloggers & aspiring bloggers?

Be passionate about what you are blogging about and have fun with it!
