WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN UP TO RECENTLY IN TERMS OF BLOGGING?
I’ve actually been blogging full time for the last month so lots of fun shoots for my blog and also a few shoots up in London for some different brands! I’ve just really been focusing on my social media and blog content and trying to build engagement etc! So yeah, super busy but super fun!
FOR ASPIRING BLOGGERS WHAT WOULD BE YOUR TOP TIP?
I think everyone would say this but it’s definitely consistency! At the start when I was focusing on building my followers and engagement I was making sure to post at least once a day! I also think replying to all your DM’s where you can and replying to as many comments as possible is so important to build relationships with your followers! Finally, make sure all your accounts look aesthetically pleasing as this is what will attract new people!
WHAT HAS BEEN THE BIGGEST PERK FROM BLOGGING TO DATE?
Meeting lots of lovely girls! I’ve met so many lovely people at events and through collaborations. It’s so nice meeting people who have the same interests as me and we can relate to each other, as well as knowing a load of lovely girls on Instagram!
WHAT WOULD BE YOUR MAIN WORDS OF ADVICE FOR BEING INFRONT OF THE CAMERA?
Just try and be as natural as possible! Whenever I post an Instagram image there are always about 30 that didn’t make the cut … ahah! Make sure you have a good background that will fit with your Instagram and blog aesthetic and take lots of pics so you have lots to choose from.
HOW DID THE WHOLE PROCESS OF CREATING THE SCARF WORK?
So Emma and I had an initial phone call to discuss the collaboration and what rough direction we wanted to go down, and from there I went away and brainstormed lots of ideas and styles that I love! I made a mood board of colours, patterns, embroidery etc and sent it across to her to get her views and from there we worked together to narrow it down to a style that truly reflected me and the brand
WHERE DID THE INSPIRATION FOR THE SCARF COME FROM?
The inspiration came from my own style and current trends that are around at the moment! We also took inspiration from luxury brands & incorporated them into House of LBD styling!
HOW DID YOU STYLE YOUR SCARF WITH YOUR OUTFITS FOR THE SHOOT?
The scarfs are so to my taste & style that they would work with any of my outfits so it wasn’t that hard! I chose my outfits based on the various different styles I like to wear and matched the scarfs with each in order to show variation! The scarfs will literally go with everyone’s style they’re so versatile!
WHAT HAS BEEN ONE OF YOUR FAVOURITE MOMENTS OF THE PROCESS?
Meeting Emma (owner) and Lauren (blogger/photographer)! They’re such lovely girls and we get on so well, so right from the beginning it felt as though I was working with my friends. We all had such a fun time creating this collaboration from start to finish and we’re all so excited for you all to see!
