How would you define yourself in 3 words?
Motivated and style conscious.
How did you become a successful blogger and how do you maintain your career and momentum?
Well isn’t that a nice ego boost to be called ‘successful’! When I get a spare minute I’m always trying to think of new ideas for the blog and ways to improve what I’m already doing. I don’t think there’s ever a time where you should be content and should always be looking forward.
What is your absolute ‘must-have’ item in your wardrobe that you cannot live without?
This season it’s the denim jacket, I seem to be drawn to them at the minute. Their effortlessly stylish and can be dressed up or down. Personally, I like to wear them with trousers.
To be a successful blogger is hard work! What are the 3 most important points of advice you would give to a newbie?
Make sure you’re really interested in what you’ll be blogging about and try and find something that nobody is doing and then be consistent with it. If someone visits your blog and you haven’t posted in a while, the chances are they might think you’re not doing it anymore.
If you had to choose a film / TV character to inspire your style for a month, who would it be and why?
I love a good film, but I haven’t watched one recently where someone’s style his impressed me. Oliver Proudlock, who was previously on Made In Chelsea, is someone who I’ve always kept an eye on. He’s always a very well dressed guy and testing new things out.
If you could be anyone in the world for a day, who would it be?
Perhaps British GQ’s Editor Dylan Jones. When I worked in their office, he always seemed to be so busy and always had a place to visit, whether that was in London or further afield. I don’t think I’d be able to do it for much longer than a day though; the stress would get to me!
If you were not a blogger, what would occupy your time instead?
I think I’d try and invest more time into producing videos. Although I’ve made a couple, I’d want to try and improve my cinematography skills a lot and get clued up on the theory side of things.
How do you feel the role of bloggers will evolve over the next 5 years?
For male fashion blogs, I believe they’ll be a lot more of us. It’s slowly starting to take off the ground now and it’s a really fun group to be a part of. Everything changes so quickly with blogging so it’s hard to say what we’ll be doing, but hopefully I’ll still be doing my thing and sharing a style tip or two along the way.
#SHAREYOURVISION for yourself in 5, 10 and 20 years time.
Across all these years I hope to still be producing some form of blog content, but in five I want to be able to find a space in London to act as a base for myself. If I’m lucky, in 10 years time I’ll be in a really exciting job within menswear that keeps me on my toes and then in 20, who knows? If anyone knows what they will be doing in 20 years time then my hat goes off to them. Maybe I’ll fancy a change and work outside of England. I don’t like looking that far ahead!
