When did you start creating content? What was your motivation?
I started creating content in the fall of 2015, but decided to make it a business in the summer of 2016. I was motivated to create Blonde & Ambitious Blog because I wanted a space where I could be creative and build a like-minded community of women who empower each other and enjoy the same things. I wanted to share my love for makeup and my skills and help women feel confident in themselves.
What's your favorite thing about creating content and the work that you do?
I LOVE my annual 100 Days of Makeup challenge. It's a span of 100 days starting in July through October 31st where I challenge myself to do a brand new makeup look every single day. My audience LOVES it, and I partner with awesome brands to do really amazing makeup looks and creations. Halloween and special effects makeup is my favorite and I always feel so energized and pushed out of my comfort zone when I'm creating.
What's your favorite thing about the InfluenceHer Collective?
I love the sense of community it builds between influencers. I love that aspect of blogging. My best friends were made on the internet!! InfluenceHer Collective really fosters that environment where we are able to grow and connect with like-minded influencers and make friends and build our own personal network.
Are you currently working on any cool projects or posts?
Right now, I am working on prepping for this year's 100 Days Of Makeup (it's a long process) but I am also working on a lot of pregnancy-related beauty posts due to the impending arrival of my first little one! It's been a lot of fun working with skincare and beauty brands focused on new moms and pregnant women. I've also been working closely with the Humane Society on their cruelty-free initiative and working to get brands moving in that direction. It combines my love for makeup AND animals in one!
What are some of your favorite brands (and brands that you'd love to collaborate with)?
Some of my favorite brands are Urban Decay, Colourpop, Anastasia Beverly Hills and Drunk Elephant - but it's honestly so hard to choose. I love so many different brands for different reasons! I have worked with a few of these brands before via PR lists or gift products, but I would LOVE to collaborate with them on an exclusive basis!
How do you feel about being selected as an InfluenceHer Award winner?
I am BEYOND humbled and honored to be selected as an InfluenceHer Award winner. I feel so lucky every day to be able to do this as my full-time job. It took a lot of hard work to get where I am today, and a LOT of support from my amazing husband and family. I hope to be able to make InfluenceHer Collective proud to have me as their Beauty Influencer this year.
