With Love, Nikki

Interview with Nicole McIntosh

Today, we visit with Nicole from With Love, Nikki. Nicole has recently started her blog and we were eager to capture her thoughts and feelings.

Lust Have: What inspired you to start blogging?
Nicole:
Southern Curls and Pearls (southerncurlsandpearls.com) really inspired me because she is so real with her followers and I relate a lot to her personal style.

LH: In one sentence, how would you describe the purpose of your blog to a potential new follower?
N:
The purpose of With Love, Nikki is to share and inspire the everyday girl through fashion, fitness, food, and fizz!

LH: Who is your number one fashion inspiration?
N:
Blake Lively

LH: What are some of your current style obsessions?
N:
I am currently obsessed with oversized tunics and over the knee boots.

LH: What are your predictions for the next big style trend?
N: I think that the fishnet trend has really taken off so I could see more incorporation of layering with tights coming up soon.

LH: Tell us about a typical day working on your blog.
N:
Typically I wake up around 7 am to get everything for my day organized. I work on editing my photos and try to have my post up by 10 am that day. I am planning on shooting most of my posts for the week on one day, since I do have two other jobs currently.

LH: What changes have you noticed in your life after starting your blog?
N:
I have realized how being organized can truly make life as a blogger so much easier. Organization!

LH: Who is your favorite photographer for your shoots?
N:
My boyfriend, Jon, currently shoots my photos. He has no prior experience in photography, so its been a trial and error process for us so far.

LH: What is your next big milestone for your digital diary?
N:
I do have some current collaborations in the works, with fitness companies and fashion boutiques, so I am really excited about that!

LH: What is the toughest lesson you have learned so far from the world of fashion blogging?
N:
It takes patience and time to grow, and that's okay! Don't be so hard on yourself if you don't see immediate results!
