September Influencer Q&A

If you have been reading my blog for a while, you know that I used to do monthly interviews with bloggers. It was a super neat way to get my reader exposed to different people and connect with different bloggers in the field! I'm starting it back up today and bringing you my September Influencer Q&A! I interviewed one of my friends Emily from the blog Love Emmarie! We met over the summer when she was interning in Los Angeles and have been great buddies since! 

Let's get started!



Please introduce yourself!

Hi y’all! I’m Emily, the blogger gal behind Love Emmarie! I’m a Texan born and raised and a senior studying fashion merchandising at Oklahoma State.



How was Love Emmarie created?

I started Love Emmarie wayyyy back in high school under a different name, and finally rebranded right before college. I started the blog to share my favorite outfits, but since then it has evolved into beauty, fitness, travel and so much more!




How has doing Love Emmarie throughout college taught you and what are your favorite parts?

I think the biggest thing blogging has helped teach me in college is time management. That is one of my main weaknesses is procrastinating and doing things last minute (like getting this interview back to Sophia...sorry babe!). I know that if I want to stay on top of my school work, blog, social media accounts AND my social life, I’ve got to hustle and get stuff done!




What would be your ultimate dream for your blog to grow to?

My ultimate dream for Love Emmarie would be to branch off the blog and open the Love Emmarie Shop. As a fashion merchandising major, my dream career is to open up my own boutique someday, so I would absolutely LOVE to tie my two passion projects together!




What is something you think your readers wouldn't know about you?

Off the top of my head, I think a lot of my readers don’t realize how tall I am! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve met someone from social media in person and they tell me that they didn’t realize how tall I was. So just to clue y’all in, barefoot, I am six feet tall and with shoes well it just depends on the heel. ;)



What has been your all-time favorite collaboration?

I think my favorite collaboration I’ve done was the Madewell campaign I participated in last year with HerCampus. Madewell is like my all time favorite store, so getting to work with them was like a dream come true! I hope to work with them again in the future!!




What would you say is essential to creating new content and sharing it with your readers?

Your own personal touch! I hate when all the bloggers or YouTubers I follow feature the same pieces or all do the same kind of posts. It just gets boring after a while. And also consistency! Find an editorial schedule that works for you and stick to it! If you post super randomly, your readers get confused. A schedule keeps them coming back!




If you could switch Instagrams with for a day, who would it be?

Hands down Jacey Duprie from Damsel in Dior. I’m OBSESSED with her. Like if I ever met her I’d be so calm and collected, and then flip out once she walked away. We’d be best friends I just know it.
