A few questions you might want to ask me are answered here and of course always leave me a comment with any other questions!
When did you start your blog? I launched The Style Editrix September 2013 when I needed to have my own creative outlet.
How did you start your blog? I always say just start as soon as you can because that is what I did. I came up with a name, bought the domain, bought a wordpress site template on Etsy, took some coding and photoshop classes, bought a camera and got my husband on board – all within a week. The rest is history!
What did you do before you started your blog? As you might have read on my About page, I worked as the Fashion & Lifestyle Producer at E! News for two and a half years before leaving to go off on my own. I was at E! for seven years total; first as an Intern for True Hollywood Story and Fashion Police, then I got hired the week after graduating college as the Assistant to the Executive Producer of E! News, I got promoted to be a Coordinator and then Correspondent for E! News and E! Online interviewing celebrities, covering events and breaking news.
Where are you from? I was born and raised in Louisville Kentucky, where most of my family still resides. I went to the University of Louisville, except for my Junior Year when I transferred for a year to Cal State San Bernardino and interned at E!. I moved back to Louisville for my senior year to graduate.
How did you get your job and internship at E!? Persistance is key and research is also very important. First, I did not land my internship until after applying for three semesters and once I moved to LA I finally got a call back. it was not for E! News like I had hoped, but I was willing to do anything at E! so I took the THS one. I then volunteered to work extra hours, help more people, met as many people as I could and asked to go out on interviews and more. Though I had to go back to Kentucky for my senior year I made sure to stay in touch with my HR contact as well as other contacts I made while working. Once there was a job open they called me because I never stopped asking for it!
Who is your role model? Oprah and my mom are my role role models. My mom always told me to shoot for the stars and I could be whatever I wanted to be. Even though she and I are super close she was also the one who told me I had to move to LA to follow my dreams. Oprah is one the best interviewers and story tellers of our time and is such a warm and grounded human being who is doing good with her celebrity.
Who is your fashion icon? My fashion icon is Nicole Richie because she has such a strong voice and unique sense of style that she is not afraid to show off.
