Hi Lovelies! Today starts a new series here on the blog called Fresh Fashionista Friday! A Fresh Fashionista is someone who knows fashion + beauty and has great personal style. I had the opportunity to ask a few questions to Niki of Glossy Blonde about blogging and her style sense, here's what she had to say...
Meet Niki of Glossy Blonde
Hi! I'm Niki and I blog over at Glossy Blonde. Glossy Blonde was named after my deep love for lip gloss and, well, the fact that I'm blonde. I love life, my hubby, animals (I have two dogs and a cat, all rescues), sweets, reality TV, shopping, and of course, anything beauty and fashion related! And you will find all of this and more on my blog!
How would you define your style?
I'd define my style as classic chic. Whether it's an unexpected cut of a jacket, mixed prints, or a statement necklace, I try to add a unique touch to otherwise classic pieces.
What are your fashion must haves?
My fashion must-haves include a fabulous pair of straight-leg or skinny jeans, black pointed toe pumps, a classic blazer (bonus points if it's in a fun color or pattern), and a versatile LBD that can be worn for any type of occasion.
Who are some of your favorite fashion designers?
Some of my favorite fashion designers are Proenza Schouler, Rachel Roy, Oscar de la Renta, Chloe, All Saints, Rag & Bone and Alice + Olivia.
What prompted you to start a blog?
I started blogging in order to share my favorite beauty finds, outfit styling ideas and baking recipes with friends and family across the country. I never expected my blog to turn into what it has, but it has been a great ride so far!
What do you enjoy most about being a blogger?
Building on the above, my favorite part about blogging is definitely the community. I never realized I could meet and network with such great people through blogging. I've made friends through this that will likely remain friends my entire life!
What advice would you give any blogger who wants to market their blogs and gain more exposure?
The advice I would give to an up and coming blogger who wants to market their blog and gain more exposure, is network!! Have a large social media presence, advertise on other blogs (even if it's just swapping ads at first), and communicate communicate with other bloggers, brands and websites that catch your interest!
Niki thanks so much for being apart of Fresh Fashionista Friday!

Have a Happy Friday and a Great Weekend!!
