It’s baaaaaaaaaaaaaack! YESSSSSSS I’m soooo excited to be “relaunching” my little Follow Friday Interview Series that I ran for the bigger part of last year! You can’t believe how excited I am! Wanna know why? Because I get to possibly introduce you to some awesome bloggers that I have discovered in my recent adventure and venture into the fashion side of the blogging world! Still every day I discover more and more inspiring bloggers and fashionistas and I can’t not introduce you to these gorgeous girls!
For me beauty & fashion go hand in hand and after all, my blog is about anything that makes a person more beautiful! So the first fashion blogger I’d like to introduce you to is the very cute, quirky Aisling from Fash-Ling.com!
How long have you been blogging?
Nearly a year
How many subscribers (across all media incl Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, etc) do you have right now?
Twitter – 794 & all Blog platforms – 360
What do you blog most about (outfit posts? trends? lust-lists? etc)?
Mostly outfit posts but there are the occasional beauty posts
How did you come up with your blog’s name?
It’s a play on my name which is pronounced ‘Ashling’ (it’s Irish, where I was born) and as I wanted to blog mainly about fashion I came up with fash-ling.
What’s your favourite part about blogging?
Meeting other blogging ladies and talking about all our favourite things!
How do you take your outfit pictures?
What equipment (camera, etc) do you use?
I have a Nikon D3100 and a tripod, and away I go!
Do you post-edit your pictures?
I only ever crop or change the lighting in photos. I once retouched out some lipstick on my teeth – forgive me please?! Lol!
Have you ever been invited to any blogging events? If yes, which one was your favorite?
I’ve been invited to a few, my favourites have probably been the ZOMG Bloggers Bash and Motel’s Spring Summer event. Lots of yummy food and bloggy chat is always the way to my heart!
What’s your favourite piece of clothing in your wardrobe?
Oh my! That is a very tough decision, I don’t think I could pick! One of my favourite items are my new River Island aztec jeans.
What’s your must-have accessory this season?
I am massively lusting after a Celine bag, I think you all know which one I mean!
What fashion brands do you swear by?
Typically I love Topshop! I also adore Zara and H&M for lots of simple but striking pieces.
What’s your pet hate?
Slow walking people, such a typical Londoner!
What’s your vice?
Shopping! I have serious issues when it comes to spending money, I always want to buy new things!
What makes you subscribe to a blog?
Pretty layout, nice clear pictures, amazing fashion style and a friendly writing style.
How do you think your blog stands out from the other blogs?
Well the fact that it’s my own? It is 100% me and the things I like, people may think some of my outfits are a bit crazy but it’s what makes me, me!
Whose style do you admire (celebrity, fashion blogger, etc)?
I love Olivia Palermo, I wish I could be that polished all the time! I also love Marina Diamandis, she is so adorable!
How would other people describe you using only 5 adjectives?
Ginger, wild, spoilt, friendly, loyal (I guess, I cringe at answering questions like this)
What is your go-to fashion magazine?
What food can you not stay away from?
What do you prefer: online shopping or shopping in stores?
Both have their advantages, honestly I’d probably lean towards online as I hate crowds and messy shops!
Is there something you wanna share that you haven’t shared before?
I am eternally grateful to anyone who follows me, but I hope that’s not a secret!
I love this girl! I find it so refreshing to find someone who hates masses and slow-walking people as much as me to resort to preferring online shopping over going into stores and dealing with the crowds. I always kinda feel ashamed of myself for that because I actually like people! But not when I’m out hunting for the best new additions to my wardrobe I guess! Haha! Also, I massively owe her because I found my favourite new pair of trousers thanks to her!
