Recently I’ve had a few requests to feature a FAQ post. I always try my best to answer all of your questions, particularly those sent via email. Hopefully some of these questions and answers will give you a little insight into my life.
Where do you live?
I live in Belfast. For the meantime anyway!
How many tattoos do you have?
I have four tattoos – three I love, one I regret. (The joys of growing up!)
Who’s your favourite style icon?
I don’t really have just one, that’s pretty impossible for me. I adore Olivia Palmero, Alexa Chung, Grace Kelly, Carey Mulligan, Sarah Jessica Parker, bloggers – Alexandra Pereira, Margaret Zhang and old movie favourites such as Barbara Streisand in Hello Dolly and Vivienne Leigh in Gone With The Wind .
Who’s your favourite illustrator?
I definitely have a weakness for art as I’m sure you’ve seen on my Instagram if you follow me (if not, come say hello!), in particular those who create stunning fashion pieces. Megan Hess is a personal favourite of mind but once again I have a few firm favourites.
If you could collaborate with one blogger who would it be?
Again, I can’t pick one! There are so many bloggers across the globe that I admire from Margaret Zhang (can you tell I’m obsessed with her?!) to Jaclyn Hill (I think she would be hilarious to work with!).
What camera do you use?
I use a Nikon D3100 with an 18 – 55 mm lense. I’m saving for a Canon to develop my photos more.
What do you use to edit your photos?
I use SnapSeed, it’s a straight forward app that allows you to tune your image and you also have the option to add some pretty filters.
Will you ever cross over to starting up a You Tube channel?
Ahhhh, the heart stopping question. I really do hope to start up my own channel in the near future. I just need to pluck up the courage to start filming. And also, I want to use a Canon for that so it’s still a hope in progress.
What You Tuber’s do you watch?
On a weekly basis I watch various beauty and fashion You Tuber’s such as Michelle Crossan, Victoria from In The Frow, Jaclyn Hill, Carli Bybel and Kathleen Lights.
Why did you start up your blog?
I started up my blog as I wanted to create a sort of online portfolio to share all of my writing, fashion and beauty interests. I wanted to do something that was completely out of my comfort zone and I have to admit that it has helped build my confidence as you have to social network like no other and also through working with PR companies and brands.
What advice would you give to those wanting to start blogging?
Well, lucky for you lovelies I featured a ‘Building Yourself A Blog’ post at the start of the year. You can read it here.
What platform is best to blog on?
I can’t really comment on Blogger as I’ve ever only used WordPress. I have heard mixed reports about both platforms so I would suggest doing a little research before setting your blog up. I do like WordPress though as I find it easy to navigate around.
