With 2017 starting off with so much negativity I wanted to look to the positives and celebrate the absolutely incredible things that are happening around us and the blogging industry is absolutely one of them. Blogging has completely exploded and I wanted to use my knew "Getting To Know..." series as a chance to celebrate some of the incredible bloggers that are out there and doing their thing no matter what.
To start the series off, I wanted to chat to one of my favourite bloggers of the moment, Emily Valentine Parr or as you might know her better, Style Lobster. Emily is absolutely killing it in the blogging game at the moment and is topping my charts for ones to watch this year. She is unbelievably beautiful and her gorgeous photography gets me hook, line and sinker every time.
Here's what happened when I caught up with Emily and asked her a few quick fire questions...
Introduce yourself and your blog in one sentence
I’m Emily and I’m the style, beauty and travel LOBSTER.
When did you start blogging and why?
3 years ago this February. I initially started because I was interest in advertising and beauty branding…
What was your first ever beauty product?
Probably the Spice Girls Impulse body spray because my Mum was hell bent on keeping me away from makeup and beauty products for as long as possible when I was a child.
Best budget beauty buy?
Lloyds Pharmacy Body Care Oil, £5.99 for 125ml – it’s basically bio oil but a fraction of the cost!
What one product do you always repurchase?
Nuxe Rev de Miel lip balm, £9.50
Bold eyes or bold lips?
Your biggest beauty disaster?
Most cherished piece of clothing?
My Chloe bag
What’s your go-to outfit?
Girlfriend jeans, oversized knit, stan smiths and some interesting jewellery
Granny pants or thongs?
Depends on my mood ;)
What’s in your handbag right now?
My diary, keys, phone, lip balm, and a hell of a lot of receipts. I started seeing them now I am a freelancer and I have the fuckers spilling out of everywhere
Night out or night in?
Again depends on my mood
What’s your favourite meal?
Mexican or sushi - tough one
What’s your spirit animal?
Who is your beauty/style icon?
Style - the Olsens
Beauty - Charlotte Tilbury
What’s the one thing you can’t live without?
What’s your guilty pleasure?
What’s the last thing you do before you go to bed?
Sad to say it but check my social media
Top blogging tip?
Quality and consistency always
What do you see in the future for yourself and your blog?
My own line of products. I ran my own beauty company before so I hope to do this again one day.
What a babe. I'm so pleased to have Emily for my first in my 'Getting To Know...' series but do let me know who you'd like to see me interview next?
