Kimberley Marquis: Interview

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

Youth—today, our youth are inspirational, passionate, strong and not to mention leaders of tomorrow. They don’t need manuals for things. They're born knowing how things work.

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

An average human being with killer style, who loves to love, strives for the best, enjoys a routine lifestyle, laughs till it hurts, never forgets birthday’s, and enjoys life to the fullest.

Why do you do what you do?

The blog is a platform for sexy, stylish women who love fashion and want to read about something real. I love to share the realness as much as I can. I don’t want to keep tips, secrets, etc. to myself. I want to share it with ANYONE who will want to listen. Whether its fashion, beauty, or health tips, I want to share it. It’s a platform to be real. No bullshit. No negativity either.

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

Fashion is in my blood, so I knew no matter what I end up doing in life, I will always be tied to the fashion industry in one way or another. I have always known that. But I started the blog in University as a way to gather all my thoughts and inspirations. From there, people started to be interested in what I had gathered and what I had to say. THAT led me to continue.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

Balancing relationships, work life, and the blog. Still doing that, by the way! I have a small team (of one) that helps me every single day, who I’m truly grateful for!

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

There are SO many amazing bloggers out there that I follow, respect, and who inspire me every day! And on the other hand, I love it when new, budding bloggers send me emails asking me for advice. I think to myself, ‘I must be doing something right!’ Haha!

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

Not starting the blog sooner. I sat on the idea for a while, being scared to start it. If you want to do something, you almost have to take the plunge before you’re ready.

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

Hoping to have more video content in the coming year. I feel like video is becoming huge in the blogger world, so hoping to get into that soon!

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

This amazing quote: “If you limit your choices only to what seems possible or reasonable, you disconnect yourself from what you truly want, and all that is left is compromise.”

DON’T compromise, ever. If you truly want to do something, you can have it. And don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

Be kind to everyone that crosses your path.
