Blogging tips,:“Personality really is everything and your readers will come back repeatedly to see that. Also, write about what you love. It makes for better content!”
What are your names, where are you from?
Carcia Campbell & Chantell ‘Telly’ Campbell, yes we are sisters! We are from Toronto, Ontario Canada.
What do you blog about?
We blog about Fashion, Music and Pop Culture. We feel each element compliments each other and we have always connected the three. We love to show our readers fashion icons and pop culture icons from the past that influence our style. We have a few regular features where we show you how to take on a style icon’s style and be inspired by them. We also cover events within the Fashion & Music and arts community, because we love to support them and in a way, they inspire us. We usually say, we blog about what we know and like.
Do you blog at home or on the go?
We have an office in our house. Depending on our mood, we can blog from our laptops in the kitchen or even in front of the television. If we see an idea while driving around or visiting a store, we take it down, so technically we blog anywhere as long as we have a notebook or phone to take notes.
Fashion tips: “…Make it interesting and be fashionably adventurous!”
Why do you blog and how did you get started?
For us, blogging started as an online journal, but once we saw people actually started checking out the blog and responding, we made the decision to share more about other things and not just ourselves. We both wanted a platform for us to share our thoughts. [Since] Carcia is a journalist by trade and Telly is a fashion designer by trade, we figured we could still express that side of us on ItsMusicFashionLife.com.
When did you start blogging?
We started blogging (seriously) July of 2011
Style tip: “try purchasing one amazing, head-turning statement jewelry piece.”
Do you have any tips—any fashion, blogging or style for our readers?
Fashion tips, we believe everyone should try to step out of their box when it comes to style. You can look amazing at any budget so try accessories and new colors! We can get away with color now, so why not try it. Our motto is Stilettos & Rock n Roll! Make it interesting and be fashionably adventurous! (Another saying we always use at ItsMusicFashionLife.com).
Blogging tips, don’t try to imitate another bloggers success. What makes a blogger successful is their ability to be themselves and show that through their online publication. Personality really is everything and your readers will come back repeatedly to see that. Also, write about what you love. It makes for better content!
Style tip, try purchasing one amazing, head-turning statement jewelry piece. It can save your life, well, fashion styling life anyway ;)
