Autumn Featured Blogger

For my autumn featured blogger, I chose Emily of Yesterday's Sweetheart. I found Emily on Instagram, actually! I started following along and loved her photos, home decor and fashion. I followed her over to her blog and I've been hooked ever since! She has a wonderful eye for style in everything she does. I'm constantly inspired by her. Check out my interview with Emily below and be sure to head over to her blog to follow along! You'll love it (and her)!

1. Can you tell us a little bit about Yesterday's Sweetheart?

Yesterday's Sweetheart is the creative aspect of my life. It's a collection of outfits, DIYs, bits of my day and inspiration I find here and there. I'm by no means a full-time blogger, but I love posting a few times a week for fun. 

2. When and why did you start blogging?

My blog started as a way to jot down bits of my life for me personally to look back on. Like many, I started with LiveJournal years ago and found a love for using the internet as a visual and creative outlet.  I love that it's turned into something that other people enjoy looking at too! 

3. Explain your style.

My style is ever-changing. I feel like I can fall into so many style categories because if I see something I like, I'll wear it. Some days I'd say classic, other days chic, modern, vintage, casual- the list goes on! 

4. What do you do for a living?

I recently graduated with a degree in Fashion Merchandising. Still living in Arizona, I work full-time as an office manager for my parent's business and part time for a vintage Etsy store, Exile Vintage. I've been in the planning process for my own business for a while now and hope to get going on it soon!

5. Favorite musicians/bands?

The Gaslight Anthem is forever my favorite! Others I'm currently loving: Polar Bear Club, Modern Life Is War, Broadway Calls, Anthony Raneri (Bayside vocalist's solo work), Alkaline Trio, Of Monsters and Men. You can also find me blasting the Glee soundtracks frequently... (I'm all over the place.)

6. What would your perfect day look like?

My perfect day would be roaming the streets of San Francisco! For something local, my perfect day would involve sleeping in (I rarely do), tackling my list of to-dos and DIYs, lunch, catching up and shopping with my girls and ending the day with a movie date with my guy. 

7. I love your home decor. What's your favorite space in your home and/or piece?

Thank you so much! It's a work in progress but my favorite space at the moment is our living room. It has somewhat changed since, but some of my favorite pieces I made myself. The coffee table and desk are made with IKEA tabletops and hairpin legs from online/craigslist. I also love my wood slat piece for displaying Polaroids!

8. What makeup product can't you live without?

I recently became obsessed with Benefit's Stay Flawless 15 hour primer, it's like a glue-stick for makeup! I'm also a bit of a lip-stain junkie and love most of the Tarte LipSurgence colors. 

9. A favorite DIY or recipe you've shared on your blog?

My favorite DIY would have to be this easy way to hang prints. Moving into my space I had so many ideas for large scale prints but couldn't think about spending the money to frame them. This was a cheap and easy solution and I actually like the look of it more than regular frames!

10. Any tips for bloggers just starting out?

Have fun with your blog and don't worry about what others think! If you stick to what you're passionate about, I think you'll find more people can relate/appreciate than you think. :)
