Interview with Sarah Hayes
Today we were fortunate enough to hear the inside scoop from Sarah, creator of Pink Sars.
Lust Have: What inspired you to start blogging?
Sarah: I began my blog around this time last year (early 2016) as I absolutely love the world of fashion and beauty. I've always been intrigued by the world of blogging having followed bloggers and vloggers from an early age. I think it was inevitable that I would eventually start my own one day! I wanted my blog to mainly be a positive creative outlet for both me and my followers which is one of the other reasons for starting PinkSars.
LH: In one sentence, how would you describe the purpose of your blog to a potential new follower?
S: Colourful, creative & vibrant content surrounded by fashion and lifestyle.
LH: Who is your number one fashion inspiration and why?
S: The Olsen Twins have always been fashion idols of mine. Every since I can remember I was obsessed with them and their individual style. Whenever I'm stuck for an outfit I love to have a flick through Pinterest at their style in particular. They're very original and know how to push the boundaries of fashion!
LH: What are some of your current style obsessions?
S: Velvet! So much of my current wardrobe is made up on velvet at the moment.
LH: What are your predictions for the next big style trend?
S: Gingham is definitely going to make a comeback for the the coming season! I'm seeing quite a lot of it on bloggers and models on Instagram.
LH: Tell us about a typical day working on your blog.
S: Lots of editing! Perfecting the layout of PinkSars so it's as user friendly as possible. Editing upcoming blog posts and making sure I'm happy with the message I want to put out there along with the right photos. Planning outfits is an essential part of any blogging day! And, of course, posting on all my social media outlets.
LH: What changes have you noticed in your life after starting your blog?
S: I think I'm a lot more confident in myself. I'm really proud that I took the leap of faith and set up a blog as it can be so daunting particularly when facing people's thoughts on it.
LH: What is your next big milestone for your digital diary?
S: I want to get my blog out there more! I think I slacked off a little towards the end of last year as my heart wasn't in it but now that I'm back in the game I want to get PinkSars out there even more.
LH: Who is your favorite photographer for your shoots?
S: My mom! I wouldn't have my blog at such an impeccably high standard without her photography! She's amazing... totally bias but sure haha. Siobhan Gleeson-Hayes of Simply Photography
LH: What is the toughest lesson you have learned so far from the world of fashion blogging?
S: Don't let opportunities pass by! If you're invited to an event or to collaborate with a brand or even do an interviewer don't let shyness or nerves stop you. Network as much as you can - that goes across the board of any profession.
LH: As you continue working on your online presence, are there any skills or talents you wish to polish that will help you along the way?
S: I'm hoping to get better at my photography skills and hopefully one day be a blogger photographer myself!
LH: Any final thoughts or advice for those that would like to follow in your footsteps?
S: Keep at it. Don't give up. If blogging is your dream and fashion is your passion, don't let anyone stop you. It's your life so live it how you want to live it!
