WELCOME AGAIN TO FEATURE FRIDAY. TODAY WE SHARE SOME Q&A WITH A MUSICIAN WITH A FLARE FOR FASHION!
JENNIFER – THE EMERALD RUBY
WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT IS YOUR BLOG NAME?
Jen Hankin from The Emerald Ruby
HOW’D YOUR BLOG NAME COME ABOUT?
My very first outfit featured bright red shoes in amongst bright emerald green grass. Unfortunately I choose my blog name before googling the emerald ruby (which usually returns pokemon tutorials…)
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN BLOGGING FOR, WHERE DID YOUR PASSION COME FROM AND WHAT DO YOU BLOG ABOUT?
I’ve been blogging for about a year and a half so far. I (try to) post my daily fashion adventures (I have a quirky sense of style). Sometimes I write about the inspiration for my outfit. Other times I write about unrelated topics, such as music and feminism and how I have no time (although Now I’ve finished uni, I have so much free time 😀 )
At first my passion for blogging came out wanting to share my outfits with the internet, but over the course of this year, as my photography has improved, it’s more about taking beautiful photos of the outfits I wear (unless I’ve been particularly tired or busy – then my photo’s are not so great)
WHAT HAVE BEEN SOME OF YOUR HIGHLIGHTS THROUGH BLOGGING EG. EVENTS YOU’VE ATTENDED, BRANDS YOU’VE WORKED WITH OR REACH A CERTAIN MILESTONE.
Probably the biggest highlight so far has been refining my photography skills and style. There are three “era’s” on my blog – The get people to take photo’s on my phone era, The Point and shoot era and the DSLR era. Each change of camera has been a milestone on my blog.
TELL US A QUIRK ABOUT YOU?
I actually don’t talk about it much on my blog, but I’m actually a classically trained flautist, and spend my days teaching tiny children how to play flute, writing music and practising. Whenever I go out anywhere I’m always asked if I’m in fashion or art. While I partake and appreciate both, I’m a musician through and through.
