Blogging From: Cambridge, England
Stylish In Sequins: We hear you’re from the UK! What your favorite part of living there?
Sammy: I love the architecture! Cambridge is a very beautiful city :)
SIS: Tell us what a normal day for a London fashion blogger is like.
Sammy: Some days are a lot busier than others, i often spend the day going through outfits and taking photos and thinking of the next thing to write about. I really enjoy it :)
SIS: On your blog, you also post a lot of your own photography. It’s amazing! How did you get into that?
Sammy: I just started off with a normal compact camera and when my dad gave me his old Canon 350d I started to be more experimental with my photos and i started looking at photography books and magazines which is where I get most of my tips from. I have now upgraded to a 600d which has helped with getting better photos.
SIS: What/where is your biggest source of inspiration?
Sammy: I always look at weheartit for not only fashion inspiration but also photography, it’s an amazing site!
SIS: What is the coolest job you’ve ever had?
Sammy: I have never done anything special really! I would say blogging is by far the coolest thing I have ever done!
SIS: Favorite hobbies?
Sammy: Keeping fit, dancing yoga and of course photography!
SIS: Tell us Americans about some of your favorite UK bands/singers.
Sammy: I've been a fan of a band called Mcfly for many years! (not sure if you know them or not) I’ve been a fan since 2004 and been to every gig!
SIS: We also read that you also run a wedding blog, Wedding Boudoir. Tell us a little bit about that.
Sammy: I started wedding boudoir after I got engaged in 2011 to write about my wedding planning and to share inspirational photos as a kind of mood board for when I need some inspiration
SIS: What is your favorite trend from Spring Fashion Week?
Sammy: I love pastel coloured clothes! I’m a big fan of colours, I’m into wearing a lot of black/grey coloured clothes.
SIS: Have you ever attended any London Fashion Week events?
Sammy: Unfortunately I haven’t, I hope to in the future though!
SIS: You also run the FBL (Fashion, Beauty, Lifestyle) group on Facebook! Tell our readers a bit more about that.
Sammy: FBL (which stands for fashion, beauty, lifestyle) was created by a blogger called Jess from lookwhatigot and I got involved at the very beginning and become an admin. We have weekly twitter chats #fblchat and the group of full of lovely bloggers who love to get to know new bloggers and keep up with the bloggers they already know. It’s a really nice community and plenty of bloggers to meet!
SIS: If you could have lunch with anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would it be?
Sammy: I would have to say Victoria Beckham. Shes so inspirational and I love her style. I met her at a book signing in London a few years and she was so friendly, shes a really nice person. I would love to talk fashion with her, that would be amazing!
