Yes, I did the blogger tag and you guys sent in so many questions but I rounded it down to the most asked:
Your biggest blog related pet-peeve?
A: Bad grammar. I find that I’m always in the mode of writing and just publishing ASAP because I want to get it out there (especially something inspiring). If it’s a Fashion or Skincare post I do take my time because I need content for that.
Who are you currently jamming to?
A: Solange Knowles
Do you enjoy being alone? Are you an introvert or extrovert?
A: I’m always solo. I love my own space because I feed off people’s energies and if we’re all seated together and someone’s aura is off it really impacts my mood as a whole. I’m inbetween both introverted and extroverted. More towards the introvert side because honestly it takes a lot for me to decide that I’m leaving the house.
What was your first job like and did you learn much?
A: My first job was definitely not my dream job but I took it anyway and gave it 150%. I tried to learn as much as I could and contributed ideas. In any role, be a sponge and learn as much as you can.
Where do you get your creativity from?
A: I find that separating myself gives me a clear headspace and enables me to get into a creative space and mode. That alone helps stimulate my creativeness and I find myself jotting down so many ideas and also having spend time on an app like Pinterest for inspiration regarding almost everything.
What inspired you to create The Haut Aesthetics?
A: I started my blog as a passion project in my spare time because I wanted a space where I could share my thoughts on fashion and my background in styling. Also, I was constantly using it to teach myself new skills and to also improve them. It was a way to educate and keep myself on my toes with the latest in fashion, skincare, lifestyle etc.
What would you advise someone who wants to start a blog?
A: If you’re passionate dive in and DON’T GIVE UP! I’m not at a level where I can say The Haut Aesthetics is doing extremely great and it’s ”all that” but honestly do it and enjoy everything about it.
You keep me inspired especially on days when I want to give up. How do you keep motivating yourself?
A: Thank you so much for this. I honestly feel that way on most days (joys of being a creative huh).
If you’re serious and hopeful about the vision nothing should stop you. I encourage you to grab that dream and give it a try! Work as hard as you can and as crazy, as slow, as impossible as it may seem just keep pushing and moving forward with all that you have and do that positively.
What’s your favourite junk food?
What’s your favourite beauty product?
A: Definitely anything that gives me minimal coverage. I find that I lean more towards products that are buildable because that gives me more control.
What’s your favourite part of doing your skincare?
A: Definitely the cleansing part and massaging the products on my skin. I love the feeling of knowing that my skin is getting all the care and ingredients it needs.
Who is your skin muse?
A: Mandy Madden Kelley
If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life, what would it be?
A: We all know I love me a cuppa coffee.
What’s your favourite movie?
A: American Gangster
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?
A: Hit me up when they’re discover a place in the world with no people. Honestly, anywhere quiet and peaceful. I haven’t seen a country or place that I’m drawn to just yet.
Which blogger do you secretly want to be best friends with?
A: I have so many but definitely Aimee Song (Song of Style). She’s at a level of her career that I aspire to be at.
Your style inspiration?
A: Monikh Dale and Bettina Looney
What is your favourite blog to read?
A: The Chriselle Factor (Chriselle Lim) and The Greylayers (Jeanne Grey)
Favourite editing apps?
I know you studied fashion too. What does your dream collection look like and what should we expect?
A: Yes, I did. Well, let’s wait on the first collection… I have so many ideas and can’t wait to share it with ya’ll.
I hope this helped you get to know me a little better! I always think it’s good to learn more about the person behind the blog and/ brand. It makes it feel more personable. You guys can still send through more questions and I’ll do a second part.
