The Gypsy Shrine introduces you to our fabulous new feature, Blogger of the Month! With February being the month of love, we wanted a blogger whose style we were madly in love with! We wanted a blogger whose style we wanted to be our Valentine. This February, our chosen blogging BABE is Charlotte Hole. Charlotte gives us major fashion inspiration, (and envy), especially in the Summer months, with her effortless festival attire and quirky Boho style. Covering content from fashion and lifestyle to travelling around the world, we have her ultimate blogger gossip and fashion-forward tips which we thought you guys would love to know.
Q. How did you start your blogging journey?
I started my blogging journey 5 years ago when I was a retail assistant at Urban Outfitters. I started shooting their new in clothing for their Facebook page each week, then I thought to myself "Why don't I just start my own blog?!". Nothing used to excite me more than creating outfit posts for my own little space on the internet, where I could inspire those who were also interested in thrifty finds and cheap high street buys. I really want to start my blog up again properly this year! It's too easy to forget why you started in the first place.
Q. What’s your current favourite fashion or beauty trend?
Bold colours! I'm obsessed with wearing colours of the rainbow right now. I'm trying to add more colour into my wardrobe instead of getting too comfortable wearing black in these colder months.
Q. Are you a festival babe or an Ibiza party girl?
Festival girl all the way! Though, I do love that Ibizan sunshine. I'm dying to check out a few new festivals abroad this summer.
Q. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
CUBA! I've been craving to visit here for a while now and check out Havana and the coastal areas. Some of the travel shots I've seen have blown me away. Since the country is so new to tourism, I feel this would be the best time to get there and check it out. I need to download a Spanish app first though!
Q. What other bloggers inspire you?
Megan Ellaby will always be my number one. Megan's outfit shots are so effortless, fresh and fun! I absolutely adore her style, and she's just as incredible in person as she is online too.
Q. Heels or Flats?
I've got into flats too much recently so I've become a bit too lazy with my heels. I always love a good boot heel though, I'm only 5ft3 so I definitely feel more confident with that extra height!
Q. You’re a total boss babe.. how do you define success?
Everybody has their own idea of success, for me personally I base my success on my happiness. Success to me isn't about having the money or other materialistic things in life, as long as I'm happy each day continuing to work towards something I enjoy then I'm succeeding.
