When I launched Anna Elizabeth Events over 4 years ago, I didn't know a single soul in the event planning or blogging industry. In fact, I hadn't truly connected with any bloggers or creatives up until about a year ago. I hadn't realized how instrumental this part played in the success and happiness of my own blog and profession. Connecting with other ladies in this industry, talking through the day to day struggles, and building each other up has been absolutely incredible (and much-needed these past couple months).
With that being said, I decided this month to launch a series on the blog where I can introduce different bloggers and creatives that I know and admire in this industry and that I think you'll love as well. For our very first feature, I want to introduce Kelsey from Chasing Cinderella! Kelsey is a life & style blogger based in Annapolis, Maryland and she launched Chasing Cinderella in December of last year. Kelsey and I actually went to the same high school in Severna Park and, although we didn't get to quite connect back then, I've always known her to be one of the sweetest and most stylish girls.
I've asked Kelsey to answer a few questions below about her blog, Chasing Cinderella, her personal life, and things that her readers might not know. Read her answers below!
What are a few words you live by? Everything happens for a reason & Ignorance is bliss
What inspired you to start your blog? I had been following a bunch of fashion bloggers for a while and always got my outfit inspiration from them. After awhile I decided that I wanted to be the place of inspiration for other girls!
What is your day job? I’m the Marketing Coordinator for a New Homes Marketing & Sales company
Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Hopefully married, with kids, living in Charleston, SC
What is your most popular blog post that you’ve shared? The post 'How To Wear Tassels Into Fall'
One thing you can’t live without? Ugh I hate that this is my answer, but definitely my phone!
Finish this sentence: My readers would never guess that: I am the definition of an ambivert! What’s that you ask!? Read this article.
What is one thing on your bucket list? Ride in a hot air balloon!
What trends are you most excited about for Fall? BOOTS AND SWEATERS!!!! It’s what I live in all fall long!
Who or what inspires you the most? My fellow blogger babes are definitely my inspiration! I love to watch everyone grow, especially my babes Nicole (Where Your Heart is Now) and Gretchen (Living Life Pretty). I have loved watching them grow and gain inspiration from them everyday!
Your go-to recipe? You can never go wrong with a homemade pizza… or delivery ;)
What is your all-time favorite movie? This is such a hard question for me cause I LOVE movies!! If I had to choose one movie that I could watch over and over again, it would have to be How To Lose A Guy In Ten Days! Kate Hudson is all the goals!
If you could dine with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be? Robin Williams for sure! He has been my favorite actor ever since I was a little girl, and I was devastated when I heard about his death! I just love him!
What is the craziest or boldest thing you’ve ever done? For me, it’s definitely starting my blog, Chasing Cinderella! I am a very shy and self-conscious person, so the idea of putting myself out there everyday on the Internet was very hard for me! In the world we live in today, people can be very cruel sitting behind a computer screen, and I was worried about the reactions I would get from my peers, and even strangers! Now, I can’t believe I every had those fears and am so happy I took the chance and entered the blogging world!
What advice would you give to someone just starting out? Be yourself, be patient, and stay consistent!
