1. What inspired you to start a blog and how long have you been blogging?
I have been blogging for the past three years. My passion for my faith, artistry, food, fashion, and travel is what inspired me to start blogging. My main reason for blogging has been to share my heart with people. I have always had an overwhelming zest for life and a profound joy that lives within my soul. I want to give people a slice of that by inviting them into my world. With blogging, there is a level of vulnerability that many are afraid to delve into, but that doesn’t scare me. Rather, it makes me more relatable to my readers and hopefully leaves them feeling inspired.

2. What has been your proudest blogging moment?
My proudest blogging moment has been the feedback from my readers. When I have someone comment back on a post that it left them feeling inspired or that it spoke to their heart is what brings me the most joy. It’s affirming in so many ways. That is why I write, why I create, and ultimately why I share. At the end of the day, if I haven’t left my readers feeling joy or inspiration, then I haven’t done my job.

3. What is something you would like to learn more about?
I would like to learn more about brand partnerships or sponsorships.

4. Favorite place to sit and blog in the city?
My favorite place to blog is in the Old Village of Mt. Pleasant. I have a special spot where I go to write, brainstorm, pray, and just be, without the frequent interruptions I sometimes experience in the city.

5. If you could grab coffee with any blogger who would it be?
If I could grab a coffee with any blogger, it would have to be Lauren Sims. Her posts are encouraging, joy-filled, and trend-driven. Her success hasn’t gone to her head. She has remained humble and true to herself in this industry, and embodies what it means to be a strong and beautiful woman of God, all while looking fashionably fierce. That leaves me truly inspired.

What inspired you to start a blog and how long have you been blogging?

I’ve been following various fashion blogs for a while and I would catch myself spending hours a day scrolling through my Instagram feed looking at blogger’s insta posts with their #ootd. I’ve always had a love for fashion and I was just chatting with friends about how I would love to blog while on a girls trip to New Orleans. I wasn’t sure that I of all people could do it, but all my friends were so encouraging and they are the reason I started blogging. And I am so thankful they gave me the push I needed to get started. I have been loving every minute! I have only been blogging since the end of March so I still have a lot to learn!

What has been your proudest blogging moment?

My proudest moment isn’t exactly any single moment, but it has been so gratifying when I run into people just out and about around Charleston and they tell me they read my blog. It is always people that I never expected to be readers and they always have the kindest things to say. It always just touches me and pushes me to continue sharing 🙂

What is something you would like to learn more about?

I recently switched my blog over to a self-hosted site and that was pretty challenging for me! Currently, I would love to learn more about SEO and how to properly use it to benefit my blog–> Can you tell I am basically tech illiterate?

Favorite place to sit and blog in the city?

I would probably choose my back patio as my favorite place to blog in the city. I really enjoy sitting in my patio in the morning (with a cup of coffee) or the evening (replace the coffee with a glass of wine!) with my sweet boykin by my side.

 If you could grab coffee with any blogger who would it be?

If I could chose any blogger it would probably be Julie Sarinana of Sincerely Jules. I have a total girl crush on her. Did I mention that her hair color was the inspiration for mine right now?! She seriously could not be cuter. I love her style–she chooses very simple, boho looks. Not sure she could be any cooler. Oh and she has her own clothing line of adorable graphic tees!
