For the next instalment of our Meet the Blogger... series we grilled the candy floss haired beauty that is Victoria from In the Frow. The fashion and beauty blogger manages to juggle her time being a lecturer in Fashion Retailing with writing product reviews and posting her latest looks. Read on to find more about the girl behind the blog...
Ok, first up who is 'In the Frow' for those that don't already know?
Well I am Victoria, a fashion lecturer from Manchester who recently finished a PhD in fashion application design. In my spare time, I review and recommend the latest clothing and beauty products on my blog, Inthefrow where I post my outfits and product reviews.
How long have you been blogging, and what made you want start it in the first place?
I have been blogging for 15 months now and it has been a brilliant journey into the blogging world. I just wanted somewhere to provide my own opinions about products as well as new garments I had found, so I started my blog one night and never looked back.
What inspires your blog posts?
I'm inspired by a lot of other bloggers, youtubers, celebs and fashion in general every day. I spend a lot of time on social media and try to keep up to date with what is happening in the industry, so when I see something new, I can get writing about it as soon as possible.
How would you describe your style?
My style at the moment has gone quite sophisticated and sleek I guess. I'm often in skinny trousers with heeled boots or wedges and a cute coat. It's quite tailored, but generally I love to mix up trends and wear things I feel comfortable in, which means that day to day I wear entirely different outfits and styles.
What three items can you not live without?
I couldnt live without an amazing pair of jeans as they are always my go to for a more casual day where I still want to look put together. I also adore my camel jacket I recently bought from Sandro - everyone needs a camel coat! And lastly I would say my designer handbag, at the moment I'm using my Mulberry bag. I just feel so much better knowing I have a bag I love with me.
What do you get up to when you're not blogging?
When Im not blogging, I'm usually out eating with friends. Otherwise I am working out, watching Youtube videos, cooking or shopping.
Tell us something no one else knows about you...
Im not sure if no one knows, but definitely a lot of people won't. My face is on the Salt and Black Pepper flavour bag of Real crisps. I had much shorter hair back then and it was silvery white. You would never recognise me if I didn't say!
And lastly, as we're releasing our travel issue, we want to know your favourite holiday destination.
Without a doubt, I adore North America. I recently travelled around there for three months and it was the best time of my life. If I had to give specifics, I'd say that Vegas, Arches National Park in Utah, San Francisco, Chicago and Washington D.C were the places to see. But if you can travel around the entirety of it like I did, then make sure you do it!
