This week we caught up with mum of 4 and content creator, Mummy Got Style...
How long have you been blogging and what motivated you to start?
I've been blogging for about 5 years. I initially started because I'd just had my 4th child and I wanted an outlet to express what I was going though. My blog then evolved into Mummy Got Style after I qualified and started working as a freelance personal stylist. I found that I could combine my love of fashion with my jouney of motherhood, and there was an entire community of mums who could relate.
What has been your biggest challenge so far?
My biggest challenge so far has been the constant juggling of my work life balance.
What's a typical day like for you?
My day starts at 5.45am. I wake up get myself ready, get the kids up and ready for school. Do the school run at 8.15am. By 9.10am I'm back home. Some days I might have an event or shoot in London, or have to meet a client for a styling session. So in this case I'll jump on the train and make sure I'm back for 3.15pm to collect the kids. On other days I'll go home, catch up on emails till around 11am. Create content whether it be taking pictures, or filming for my YouTube till about 1pm. I'll do some housework and cook dinner till 2.30pm. Then leave to collect the kids. I'll get back home about 5pm. Sort the kids homework, dinner, bath, bed. Then about 10pm I'll be in my PJs. From 10pm till 12.30am I work on my content again. This is a combination of posting and engaging on my Instagram account, writing a blog post, or editing photos and my video content. Then I get my beauty sleep!
Finally, If you had one piece of advice to give to other aspiring influencers, what would it be?
The one piece of advice I'd give is to think about what you love, and then once you know what it is, use your platform as your voice to authentically connect with your followers. It's really not an easy journey and takes so much hard work. There'll be highs and lows, but don't give up, and stay consistent and true to yourself! Most importantly do it because you genuinely love what you do!
