Blogger Spotlight || Leigh from Obviousleigh Blog

Leigh From Obviousleigh Blog 

Our second blogger under the spotlight is the lovely Leigh from 'Obviousleigh' blog.  Leigh is a fashion blogger with some beauty posts too and I love her blog because her personality and style just screams at you! Leigh doesn't try to molly cuddle anyone or doesn't put on a false personality which I really admire. I find time and time again that some bloggers can come across as false after taking a look at their Twitter or Instagram. At times the personalities don't add up but this isn't the case for Leigh and her blog. 

I hope you enjoy Leigh's interview, I know I personally found it interesting as her no nonsense answers really hit a chord and I love that she knows exactly what she likes which is rare these days in the blogging world.

Hi there Elyse, 

Hi Leigh. To kick us off,  can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
Well hi there everyone my name is Leigh. My blog name came around as a private joke between a few friends.. obviously? Get it?, it works with most things. I am soon to be 20 and I am also currently studying fashion at university. 

Are there any trends you are inspired by for this season?
I have been really into the monochrome trend, its such a classy trend. Monochrome never goes out of fashion. Another trend I am loving would be the 90's revival, I am loving bold graphic tees. 

What led you to start blogging?
I have read blogs for as long as I can remember so I decided to take the plunge. I have attempted to blog twice before but was never that confident so I stopped doing it. As I have grown older, I become more comfortable in my own skin. With what I now wear, I really wanted to share that with everyone and finally my third attempt stuck it out. 

What tips would you give to anyone starting out?
My top tip would don't be fooled into thinking you have to do what popular blogs are doing. Take your time, find your niche and in time people will read. Don't expect to get famous overnight. TLC is what counts. 

If you were a colour, what colour would you be?
Such a tricky question, I would probably be a tangerine orange or a khaki green. Both colours look great on everyone!

Let’s talk celebrity crushes, who is yours and why?
My all time favourite crushes are Ian Somerhalder and Gerard Butler. They're just proper men!!

What’s your top beauty and style tips?
Best beauty tip would be, to tame unruly eyebrows spray some hairspray onto an old toothbrush and then brush upwards and outwards. My best style tip is to not follow a trend for the sake of it. Be yourself if you don't like a trend don't force yourself to wear it.

Who are your favourite bloggers and vloggers?
My favourite Vlogger is Claire from Ohhaiclaire and my favourite blogger is Kavita from She Wears Fashion.

What are your favourite websites?
The list goes on forever. I really like Romwe as you can find some really unique pieces on their site.

What songs or artists would be currently found on your playlist?
At the moment I have The Fugees - The score album on repeat, my music taste is so random, it then skips to King's Of Leon.

Where do you hope to take your blog in an ideal world?
Really and truthfully I haven't thought about where I want to take it, I really do it as a diary so that I can look back in years to come. I love giving people inspiration, if someone finds that on my blog AWESOME! 

What are your blogging bugbears? 
I understand social networking plays a big part if you want to get your blog out there. But, there is a difference from giving two tweets a day about your blog, to spamming my news-feed with every post that a blogger has ever written. SPAMMING IS ANNOYING!!

If you could change one thing, what would you change if anything? 
I don't think i would change anything about my life, not that i am perfect, O.K one thing would be my car, nothing major. It's that old saying about the butterfly effect.

Thank you Leigh for the awesome interview! I can't wait to see more ootd posts and can fully relate to Gerard Butler and liking 'proper men', I feel exactly the same lovely!
