Hello Beautiful People!
A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to interview one of my favourite fashion, lifestyle and beauty bloggers and youtubers of all time – Katie, from Katie’s Bliss! I actually found Katie’s blog and youtube on accident one day, and I was glad I did! The first video I saw of Katie’s was actually her NYC Apartment Tour. I’ve been reading her blog and watching her videos ever since and I just can’t get enough of what she has to say and all her amazing outfits! So if you haven’t had the chance to look at Katie’s blog or youtube before, I’d suggest going right now and taking a look! I guarantee you will love her!
Can you introduce yourself, tell us where you’re based from, and what the name of your blog is?
My name is Katie Manwaring and I blog at Katie’s Bliss! I live and work in New York City.
When did you start your blog and why did you start it?
I start my blog when I was in college a few years ago. I felt un-inspired and needed a creative outlet!
What is your absolute favourite part about living in NYC?
There’s always something to do – I’ve never been bored once!
Who would you say your favourite fashion designer is?
Hard to say – but I do I love Rebecca Taylor and Michelle Smith!
If you had to name five go to makeup products, what would they be?
Bobbi Brown concealer, mascara, a tinted moisturizer, St. Tropez self tanner and a really good daily moisturizer.
What is your favourite fashion trend that you’ve seen for spring/summer 2014 so far?
I’m loving caged sandals!
Who or what gives you the inspiration for your blog posts?
I’m always really inspired by New York City and just how I’m feeling on a particular day. If the weather is beautiful I’ll most likely wear something really colorful and bright. If I’m feeling moody and want to look like a stereotypical New Yorker I’ll dress more edgy in darker colors.
What are your favourite makeup brands high end and drug store?
I love NARS, MAC, Bobbi Brown and Dolce & Gabbana for high end. My favorite drugstore brands are L’Oreal and Covergirl.
What is one thing that is unique about your blog compared to other blogs?
I have a YouTube channel too! You can check it out at youtube.com/pinkbeautybliss
What made you want to start your youtube channel?
Same reason I started my blog! I needed a creative outlet and I was OBSESSED with watching YouTube videos when I was in college.
Do you have any advice for those interested in starting their own blog?
Don’t let your fears hold you back. Just start! Growing a following takes time so patience is key!
I’d like to thank Katie again for taking the time to answer a few of my quick questions about her blog and her youtube! If you love all things fashion, beauty, lifestyle and city inspired, you will LOVE Katie and her youtube and blog, so go now and check her out!
