Q&A with NICOLE MACINNES

22 February 2016

How would you define yourself in 3 words?

Passionate, indecisive & a perfectionist.

How did you become a successful blogger and how do you maintain your career and momentum?

In terms of success I feel I’m still working towards where I want to be, I’m sort of at the rise of making it happen for myself. Taking the risk & deciding to blog full-time is what turned things around, pushing me to further my goals & challenge my decisions. I also always like to educate myself on the things that interest me, it helps me to stay inspired & innovative.

What is your absolute ‘must-have’ item in your wardrobe that you cannot live without?

My Leather jacket. It goes with everything!

To be a successful blogger is hard work! What are the 3 most important points of advice you would give to a newbie?

It can be a slow process at times but always be patient. Take risks. Find your niche & roll with it.

If you had to choose a film / TV character to inspire your style for a month, who would it be and why?

One Fine Day. It’s a 90s Classic, I’m completely channelling Michelle Pfeiffer at the moment! She’s so effortlessly perfect in this film right down to her hair. It’s the oversized coats & sheer tights that does it for me I think.

 If you were not a blogger, what would occupy your time instead?

Definitely something within in the Fashion Industry, before I started blogging full-time I was a visual merchandiser for ZARA. I’ve always loved fashion so I feel that no matter what, that’s where I would end up spending my time.

How do you feel the role of bloggers will evolve over the next 5 years?

It’s definitely blown up in recent years, with Instagram being the first platform in getting bloggers out there, it’s only going to grow. New platforms will become available adding to reach for influencers, everyone is constantly moving with the times. Evolving onto other platforms, Instagram becomes a blog, which then becomes a Youtube channel. So over the next 5 years the role of blogging will become so much more than what it currently is.

#SHAREYOURVISION for yourself in 5, 10 and 20 years time.

In 5 years I’d love to continue what I’m doing now, growing & evolving along the way, hoping that people will enjoy what I share on my blog. It’s very unpredictable, I like it that way.

After then, It’s really hard to say. I never really saw myself doing this forever, I always said that I would experience as much as I could while I was young with no commitments & eventually step into something fashion related further down the line, whether that would be working for a fashion house or starting my own.
