    One on One with Topknotch

    Today I have the absolute fortune of sharing my One on One ‘interview’ with Rachael (aka Topknotch), one of my nearest and dearest Insta-friends. This article is especially close to my heart because Rachael was one of the first blogs I stumbled on after starting my own. I remember being overwhelmed at how professional and well-done her blog was (and still is). Over the course of my blogging journey she has provided me with a template of what I want for my blog. She’s hardworking and consistent and so genuinely kind to followers and blogging friends, I’m grateful to have her in my blogging support group and to be collaborating…

    One on One: BurgundyBeautyZA

    BurgundBeautyZA. Between her simplistic, clean-cut flatlays, her down-right frank product reviews and her incredible commitment and consistency, I can’t actually pick what I love most about Simran’s Instagram account. As one of the first people I followed after starting my blog, Simran’s stunning page is one that I will always hold in high regard. In my opinion, she stands out in the beauty community as someone who really does have her followers in mind in everything that she does. Burgundy Beauty is the first Instagram-only review account that I have interviewed for One on One, and this article really capture the essence of why I started the segment. I wanted…

    One on One: Everything x She

    What a whirlwind of a month March has been (all 14 days of it)! I know I have been MIA lately, as have most of my regular pieces, but One on One is back with its first ever non-blogger! The STUNNING Natasha from @everythingxshe. I’m really excited about this article in particular because of the absolutely ridiculous follower to talent ratio that Natasha has. With less than 500 followers, she is an example of why this segment was created. I wanted One on One to showcase amazing artists, bloggers etc. who have yet to be found by the beauty community (but definitely should be). Natasha was a dream to work…

    One on One: That’s Totally Fetch

    One on One is back! This month’s blogger/influencer/artist/person-I-wanted-to-interview is Dee from That’s Totally Fetch! This side-splittingly relatable South African blogger captured my interest and Instagram follow with her sassy stories and beautiful looks, but captured my heart through her earnest and open blog posts. Dee balances her picture-perfect online presence with real and honest content, making her one of my favourite influencers to follow. (My comments are in bold and Dee’s replies are in normal font.) Most of us know you as @thatstotallyfetch_sa . Your gorgeous locks, warm smokey eye looks and hilariously relatable rants have built you a following of almost 3 000! But what can you tell us…

    One on One: Kelly-Anne Joseph

    With all the lovely positive vibes floating around on Instagram lately, I thought about how I could do my share in supporting the fantastic blogger community (all of whom have been so kind to me in my months of being Perilously Pale). For bloggers, and women, and blogging women, support and backing and encouragement is vital for growth. The amount of shout-outs, collaborations and mentions I have received have been the biggest reasons for my ever-growing following. And so, One on One was born. I wanted to give an inside look into the personalities behind some of my favourite accounts and blogs by doing little interviews with some of these…
