How long have you been blogging for?

I feel like a granny now when I say I’ve actually had my blog for 6 years, however only been able to really dedicate myself to it the past year or so.

How did you get into it?

I started blogging whilst at University, as an outlet to present my fashion studies and communicate with other creatives.

How do you keep your content fresh?

I’ve always been a lover of trends and an early adopter so I jump at anything new and inspiring!

What is Missguided about to you?

The trend factor, that fashion is now as fast paced as life and tomorrow’s shearling coat is yesterday’s bomber.

What’s your top tip for anyone looking to start a blog?

Stay true to yourself because there is space for YOU and YOUR personality and style.

The above, in my current favourite shades of mocha and rose pink.

Biggest fashion disaster?

Just go back to my blog archive pre-2013 and you’ll find a good few!

What’s your favourite piece from New In and why?

I’m lovin’ accents of red for the new season so it would have to this jumper!

How do you shoot the perfect OOTD?

The “perfect” OOTD would be shot creatively somewhere industrial with my photographer, with lots of natural light. But for everyday keeping it simple with a white wall works for me (and pretty much every blogger). That way to focus is on the outfit!

How do you edit your photos?

On my phone I use FaceTune and VSCO but for blog edits I’ll use Photoshop or Pixlr is a great online free tool.

Snapchat or Instagram?

I’ll never betray my girl Instagram like that. We solid!

Who’s account gives you major Insta envy?

UK based, Lucy Williams is style queen. But Angelica Blick is just #LifeGoals
