Mermaid-haired fashion and beauty blogger Sophie Hannah Richardson is a total babe. We caught up with her to chat blogging tips, fashion disasters and who she’s obsessing over on Insta…
Tell us about yourself…
I’m a greeny blue haired beauty and fashion blogger based in Essex and I’m a huge wannabe mermaid!
How long have you been blogging for?
For about 2-3 years now, but this year seems to have been when I started getting noticed.
How did you get into it?
I actually pursued fashion styling after graduating from University so I always had a love for putting together cool outfits. I then progressed into a job in social media and that’s when I discovered bloggers. It really inspired me to start my own blog and it became my hobby. And most recently became my full time job!
How do you keep your content fresh?
I’m always on the look out for the next beauty trend or trying to think of different ways I can style my hair. My hair tutorials have really grown my Instagram this year, which is one of the reasons I started introducing beauty to my blog.
What is Missguided about to you?
If you want an outfit you can slay in, then you’re sure to find something affordable and banging on Missguided!

What’s your top tip for anyone looking to start a blog?
Don’t blog about everything. Pick a few themes to focus on and create content with those in mind. It’s really hard to stand out with there being so many bloggers around now so try to find a niche.
What’s your go-to outfit?
It’s got to be a pair of sneaks, skinny jeans and a mermaid top.
What are you wearing right now?
I’m actually wearing your high neck pocket detail slouchy jumper grey with black skinny jeans! It’s getting chilly outside so I’ve started my AW16 wardrobe!
Biggest fashion disaster?
This has got to be the time I sat down at a bus stop to wait for the bus and my jeans split right down the inside of both legs. I was so embarrassed! Luckily I had a jacket on so I tied it round my waist and hoped no one noticed.
What’s your favourite piece from New In and why?
I adore the faux suede biker jacket cobalt blue – I love a statement jacket and I’m a sucker for anything in a mermaid blue shade.

How do you shoot the perfect OOTD?
I always shoot my blog snaps on a tripod outside. I love to try and find some sort of wall and then play around with poses.
How do you edit your photos?
On Photoshop! I was lucky and learnt how to use the software at University. I also edit using Afterlight and Facetune if i’m posting blog snaps on Instagram.
Snapchat or Instagram?
Instagram! I’ve never really got into Snapchat; it’s just one extra social channel to think about!
Who’s account gives you major Insta envy?
@ihateblonde – she has the coolest photos and style!
Who should we be following on Snapchat?
I think everyone needs to follow the Kardashians and Jenners! It’s crazy getting an insight into their luxury lifestyles.

Which emoji do you use the most?
The neon green heart – there’s no mermaid emoji so I have to make do with the green and blue ones!
What does a day in the life of Sophie Hannah Richardson look like?
I get up early to take my puppy out, I’m with her pretty much all day and she’s amazing company. Then you’ll either find me taking blog photos or recording a new youtube video!
What’s your life motto?
I know it’s cliche, but you really only do live once.
Who would be in your ultimate girl gang?
Ooo, this is tricky! It would have to be the whole cast of Pretty little liars!
What are you listening to rn?
Justin Bieber’s album… I’m going to admit it, but I am a little bit of a Belieber!
