I have been blogging since the age of 14. I had a completely separate account called ‘teen post beauty’ and would post fashion shows I went to and fun things like that! I was so in love with the fashion and beauty world and still am to this day! I used to work in a hair salon in central London, right by Selfridges and would meet so many amazing celebrities and YouTubers. I feel like what pushed me to start was I always felt different growing up and got bullied throughout my teen years in school for being ‘the curvy girl with green eyes’. I was one to always keep my head down and I’d be so shy because people always had something negative to say.
My favourite quote is ‘be the person that you needed growing up’ and for me, blogging and especially YouTube really has helped me stand for something that I have struggled with growing up. I chose to be the light of the situation and I’m so proud that I have turn a negative into an incredible positive! I love helping others in my position feel confident in there own skin! It’s truly the best feeling knowing that I help people feel confident, owning who they are and not shying away from that. After all, you really do have one life to live! You may as well own it and shine bright
What has been your biggest challenge so far?
My biggest challenge so far has been my mindset when it comes to putting myself out their. There are days where I’m super pumped and can not wait to film! There are others where I don’t feel great and literally want to put my phone in a draw and just hang out with my friends. I’ve shared a lot online, specifically when my mum passed away. That was super challenging because it was so raw and real and I really wanted people to see that as much as you can appear to be picture perfect, life really is life and anything can happen at any given moment. So just sharing the dark side to my reality has not only been the biggest challenge, it’s also been the most rewarding because theirs nothing that makes me more happy than making someone feel less alone and inspired!
A typical day for me is waking up, having my green tea and giving out my gratitude to the universe. I’ll either meditate or do some breathing exercises. I’m big on mindset and theirs nothing like starting off your day on a positive note! From their, I will get glammed up and create content. Whether that be filming a video, taking some pictures or writing poetry, I’m always doing something fun and creative!
Finally, If you had one piece of advice to give to other aspiring influencers, what would it be?
One piece of advice I would give to other aspiring influencers would be to be yourself. It really is about owning who you are as a person and not comparing yourself to others. As cheesy as that may sound, theirs genuinely nothing better and more refreshing than being unique and owning who you are from the inside out! You’d rather be an original, than a copy of something.
