Lynnette Joselly from Eména Spa had a chance to go one on one with Annie as she dishes on her beauty secrets and upcoming hair trends. Check out the interview below:
eména spa: Why did you initially start a blog?
Annie: I started the blog to do feature local designers & boutiques & style events. During the time, editors weren’t buying homegrown stories about fasion since there wasn’t enough money in the budget due to the recession so I decided to do something about it by starting my blog.
eména spa: What is the story behind your blog’s title?
Annie: I love poetry and fashion and both are kinda of the same in my eyes. They are both carefully curated and when pieced together they both produce something beautiful.
eména spa: What do you do when you are not blogging?
Work wise. I am fashion consulting with brands and companies and putting together style events in the city. The newest one is Fashion for a Cause Campaign. 35 bloggers will be joining foces to raise funds for breast cancer with Peace Love World & Bloomingdales. Our event is October 17 at Bloomies Aventura.
Fun Wise: Well, I just produced my first short film called Blogging: Behind the Seams and I love to dip my hands in everything creative. I also like going to concerts and singing with my boyfriend. He’s an awesome song writer and musician.
eména spa: Please share one hair or beauty tip with us.
Annie: Keep your beauty creams in the fridge. They last longer and feel amazing when you put them on.
eména spa: What’s your daily makeup routine?
Annie: Mascara, BB Cream and lipgloss.
eména spa: What are some beauty / fashion trends we should look out for?
Annie: Faux Mohawk. With the punk trend being huge for Fall, this hairstyle is unique and statement making.
