Vlogger Of The Month: Rhiannon aka FashionRocksMySocks
Posted by in Blogger Of The Month, Experts
It's December already?! We have had so many incredible blogger/vlogger of the months this year, and thought it was only right to end it on a high. Time to meet Rhiannon from FashionRocksMySocks, you'll love her!
1) What do you enjoy most about vlogging?
The fact I'm able to make friends with people all over the world and that just blows my mind. It's amazing.
2) Who or what inspires you?
Every vlogger was of course, once inspired by at least one other vlogger but nowadays I tend to take inspiration from my surroundings; friends, magazines and day-to-day life.
3) What are some of the best aspects of running your own YouTube channel and the hardest ones?
One of the best aspects has to the amount of diverse, amazing opportunities I've had through YouTube and the subscribers/friends I've made all over the world. Also, as someone who was far from proactive at school, I'm astonished (as well as everyone else close to me) that I've managed to build this community that is FashionRocksMySocks, completely off my own accord. Even if I'm not the biggest name out there on the internet, for me I've done well and I'm proud of that.
4) What has been your biggest achievement so far?
Winning 'Best Fashion Blog' at the Company Magazine Blog Awards in 2013 and the following year winning Highly Commended in the same category. I've also been nominated for two Cosmopolitan Blog Awards. A personal achievement has to be gaining confidence when it comes to meeting new people as I was painfully shy as a kid but going to blogging or YouTube events, you have no choice but to break out of your shell and it's made me grown so much as a person. Another huge achievement was a Photoshoot I did with John Lewis back in the Spring of this year.
5) How does your channel stand out from the others?
A common comment across both my YouTube channels mention that my viewers find me very relatable and genuine, so I guess that makes me stand out from the rest.
6) If you could describe your channel in one sentence (mission statement) what would it be?
Chatting fashion, beauty and everyday life, friend to a friend.
7) What are your favourite 5 products you can't live without?
Tough one! I'd have to go with: Lush Marilyn Hair Treatment, MAC Lady Danger Lipstick, Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer, Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanse and Lush Prince Shaving Cream.
8) What are your objectives and aspirations for the next 12 months?
I don't have any specific objectives for the next year but I plan to grab every opportunity as it comes and say yes to more things because what's the worst that could happen?
9) How would you describe My Beauty Matches?
An easy to use service to make the most of your pennies when shopping for your essential (and not so essential) beauty products.
