Today we will be chatting with Kirsten from The Low Country Socialite blog. Kirsten’s blog features everything from product reviews to restaurant recommendations and event recaps, and everything in between. You need to check out her blog especially if you are living in GA
Where are you from?
I’m from Georgia. I live in Statesboro, GA which is very close to the beautiful, historic city of Savannah.
Can you tell our readers about yourself and your blog?
My blog is an American, southern girl’s approach to the world of plus size fashion. I’m a social scene lurker, unicorn lover and warrior for the pursuit of happiness!
How did you first get into blogging?
I started back in 2010. I had never heard of a blog but somehow searching the internet, I stumbled across the blog of a girl I had gone to college with and I figured I could start a blog too. That was TOTALLY the WRONG reason to start. Because I started watching other bloggers and trying to pattern my journey on what they were doing, I had a lot of bumps & hiccups along the way. It took a lot time, but I finally began to walk in my own purpose and discover my place in the blogosphere.
What do you wish you knew when starting your blog?
That having your own unique voice is the only way to be and stay consistent. Stop looking at other bloggers and do your own thing.
Where do you see your blog in 5 years?
I hope to showcase a lot more of my personal style and work more with local businesses. I consider myself a small business brand advocate and have expanded into branding and social media management.
What is your favorite aspect of blogging?
The perks are great but my favorite part of blogging is having a space that’s all my own and being a resource for women.
If I gave you $100, what beauty items that you don’t own would you buy?
I’d head straight to Ulta and have a blast! Which actually $100 won’t last long in there but hey, I’ll take it. LOL I’m really loving the new Urban Decay Vice lippies.
What skin care or beauty steps do you religiously take time for?
Adding more steps to my routine to make sure all of my makeup is off. I used to just use face soap and rinse. I had no idea that I was leaving so much dirt and makeup still on. Using a scrub, astringent, makeup towels, etc. has really helped.
What five fantastic products do you use now, and why do you love them.
I love Estee Lauder perfectionist, Loreal Double Extend Mascara, Stila Colorstay lipstick, Smashbox Photo Finish Primer.
What are two beauty blogs we should check out, and why do you love them?
What is your favorite post to date?
Do you prefer getting dressed up or being casual?
Hmm….there’s power in both…:o)
What do you do in your spare time?
What’s that? Lol I work a full time job so spare turn is usually devoted to my blog, social media and attending events.
What is your favorite thing to do on a lazy weekend morning?
