I was tagged by the adorable Lelo to participate in a Writing Process blog tour – so here goes!
1. What am I working on?
Along with my regular posts sharing outfit ideas, beauty tips and shopping hauls, I’m also working on a couple of exciting projects at the moment! The first one is a LOFT collaboration with Elaine (#LovePrettyXLoft) and the second one will be announced on Saturday. It’s fun to work on projects that organically relate to the topics I’m most passionate about!

2. How does my work differ from others of its genre?
I don’t necessarily try to differentiate myself from other fashion and beauty bloggers (love them and am proud to be one!) – but there are certain guidelines that I stick to when I’m blogging. First, I only post what I actually wear – my outfits have to be comfortable, practical and fit in with my lifestyle. Second, I only write about topics that I’d be interested in reading about (no cutting and pasting press releases *yawn*). Some of my posts answer questions that I’ve searched for myself (i.e. What makeup should I wear to cover acne? Will the bag I love be able to fit all my stuff? What should I wear to a holiday party?)

3. Why do I write what I do?
I’ve always been interested in beauty and fashion – I’d spend hours poring over magazines as a teen – it’s always been my “me-time” hobby. I love finding ways of looking and feeling my best – whether it’s a makeup trick or where to find super-stylish yet affordable clothing or how to remix what I already own. And I love sharing what I find with like-minded people – especially if it helps them too!

4. How does my writing process work?
Blogging is my hobby – and I want to enjoy it, so I try to keep it fun and pressure-free. I take my blog photos when my kids are at school and I write my posts after everyone has gone to bed at night (peaceful and no interruptions!) I also take lots of notes on my iPhone (especially when writing product reviews).
Who is next on the blog tour?
I’ve always had a stylecrush on Jessy, and I’m so excited that she’s agreed to take part in this tour.
And don’t forget to check out Lelo’s blog for beauty reviews – she’s such a talented makeup artist!
