My Gal Friday is all about supporting other bloggers, and sharing some of my favourite pages with all of you.
This week I want to introduce you to Kasey of Kase Styles.
My Gal Friday has to be my favourite series to write for Make Mine Maroon! I love learning more about the gorgeous and talented women that I follow and admire. Kasey of Kase Styles is one of those women, and I’m so happy she agreed to be featured this Friday.
My favourite thing about following Kasey is the confidence she exudes! Not only is she confident, but she is all about sharing that confidence with all the women around her. Kasey is a total #girlboss who majored in Fashion Marketing and now coordinates fashion photoshoots! (Dream job, right?!)
1: What do you feel is your biggest accomplishment?
“My biggest accomplishment thus far I feel has been continuously learning and growing. No matter what happens in life I think it’s imperative to be your best self, always evolving, and learning from your mistakes and from those around you. I have learned to become more comfortable in my own skin and still create and cultivate thriving relationships with those around me. It has been no easy accomplishment; I dedicated a lot of time and energy to working on myself and my relationship with others. It’s taken a lot and I am proud of what I have accomplished so far, and I look forward to what I am going to continue to learn!”
2: If you could share one piece of blogging advice for new bloggers what would it be?
“This is a tough one for me. I struggle with patience, but you need to have it to get to where you want to go. Do it for the love of it and be patient when waiting for the results. I compare myself to other bloggers all the time and think “why can’t I be there yet?” “Why can’t I be full time traveling the world and doing what they do?”, but you can’t compare your chapter 1 to their chapter 20. I have been doing it for a year and a lot of people have been doing it a lot longer than that to get to where they are now. Focus on you and stay true to who you are and who you want to be.” (I can’t agree with this statement enough! It’s so hard, especially with all the media blogging involves.)
3: One item of clothing you can’t live without!
My Citizens of Humanity skinny black jeans. I wear them all the time and love the way they fit!
4: One thing in life you can’t live without!
I can’t live without my mascara! Well of course there are things like my puppy, my fiancé, or my family, those are no brainers, but I will not leave my house without mascara on (my eyelashes are half blonde so I I don’t like to go without it!). (Kasey recommends this one.)
5: If you could have brunch with anyone living or dead who would it be?
I would love to brunch with Cheryl Strayed, her advice is amazing and I’d love to have a power brunch with her. If you haven’t read Tiny Beautiful Things I highly recommend it! I am also really into Sophia Amoruso after reading Girl Boss and I just adore her podcast as well. (Girl Boss is amazing and I highly recommend it too!)
Kasey doesn’t just share great style on her blog, she also shares some wonderful lifestyle advice as well. This gal is sage! I had to pick three of my favourite non-fashion posts from Kasey to share with you:
I hope that each of you will give Kase Styles a look! I know her site will become a must read for you.
Happy Friday loves! I know everyone is saying it, but I honestly can’t believe the first week of May is over…. 2016 is flying by quickly. It’s been a good one so far and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the year holds!
