Meet..... Gem Fatale

Gem is definitely up there with our favourite bloggers, so it was a no brainer when deciding who to feature next. We love her infamous Tuesday tips and can always rely on her to bag some awesome charity shop bargains. So what are you waiting for? Read on to find out more about the girl behind the blog...




Ok, first up who is 'Gem Fatale'? 
I thought the name up before I had a blog whilst I was creating a new email address for an eBay account! I'd been studying Film Noir at the time so femme fatales were on my mind... When I came to start the blog soon after, the name stuck. I didn't think about the meaning of it much at the time as I never though anyone would read the blog, but now I cringe when my postman brings me parcels addressed to Gem Fatale... I sound like a porn star!

How long have you been blogging, and what made you want start it in the first place? 
I started in the summer of 2007 after being inspired by the few popular bloggers of the time (eg. Susie Bubble!) I was living in an OAP-crammed seaside town and feeling slightly alone in my burgeoning interest in fashion. The blog became a place for me to air my take on all things stylish and a way to communicate with like-minded ladies.




What inspires your blog posts? 

Anything that makes me go 'OMG'! The things that usually excite me are bargains, cute things (baby hedgehogs etc.) and DIY projects. I'm really inspired by food and craft blogs at the minute. I've got lots of festive baking and crafting blog posts planned! 



How would you describe your style? 
Girly with a rocky edge. And always comfy: body-con dresses need not apply. 







What three items can you not live without?
My laptop, my nail art pen and my big brown faux fur coat I found in a charity shop. 


We're huge fans of your Tuesday tips... have you got a favourite? 
Aw, thank you! My discovery that liquid eyeliner could double up as a nail art pen really kick started my love affair with nail art, and seemed to go viral round the blogosphere at the time which was extremely exciting, so it'll always have a special place in my heart. There's nothing as heartwarming as having someone say that they've tried and loved a tip you've shared! It's my favourite thing about blogging. 






What do you get up to when you're not blogging? 
Whilst not blogging I'll be found working at Topshop, cosying up with my boyfriend in front of the telly, or raiding the local charity shop circuit. 

Tell us something no one else knows about you... 
I have an unhealthy obsession with horoscopes... I once cried when I read that my boyfriend and I were doomed to fail as he's a Capricorn and I'm a Gemini... I suppose the fact we've been together 6 years ought to tell me to stop believing what I read! 




And lastly what's your favourite thing about Autumn?
Layering! The bingo wings can retire safely away in chunky knit cardigans and bad hair days can be easily masked with a woolly hat. Nippy weather hides a multitude of style sins!
