ABOUT THE BLOG
Life with Emily is the space where I share my personal style in hopes to inspire & help make the task of getting dressed a little easier! My looks are ones that can actually be worn day-to-day. My outfits feature a mix of high and low end pieces with an emphasis on closet staples.

ABOUT EMILY
I am a 28-year-old southern girl living in North Carolina with my husband, Nick, and our cat, Charlie. I began blogging at Life With Emily during my junior year of college at Appalachian State University in 2011. After spending countless hours on campus & many more hours studying, I started my blog as a creative outlet to share my day-to-day life. Upon graduating college in 2012, I shifted my content on Life With Emily to focus on my sense of style, and that is where my passion for blogging began. Seven years later I am still blogging about my personal style, my favorite fashion & beauty finds, my travels, and bits and pieces of my life.

FAQs

How did you start your blog?
I started my blog in 2011 while I was a junior at Appalachian State University. I had been reading blogs for quite a while and finally one day I thought, “why not?” I started Life With Emily having absolutely no clue what I was doing, but used it as a creative outlet to share my day-to-day college life along with all of my favorite fashion and beauty products! Back then, the blogging scene was so different, so it’s been a lot of trial-and-error as the blogging world has continued to change and evolve.

What did you study in school?
I went to Appalachian State University and received my Bachelor’s degree in Communication with a focus on Public Relations. My minor was sociology. I interned for a PR agency, a few non-profit organizations, and in a radio station’s event department while in college.

Who takes your photos?
My sister, Logan, takes all of the photos for my blog. When I first started taking outfit photos back in 2012 she would help me out. At the time neither one of us knew what we were doing, but together we have learned through trial and error! The photos aren’t always perfect, but we have so much fun bonding together every week when we shoot together and it’s been fun to see her progress over the years! Over time Logan has really taken a liking to photography and has even started taking a few photography classes in high school! I will occasionally use a professional photographer for certain projects, but for the most part it’s my 16 year old sister behind the lens! 

Help! I want to start a blog but have no idea where to begin. Can you give me some advice?
This is one question that floods my inbox constantly and I always love taking the time to answer it! My biggest piece of advice: Go for it! My blog began as a hobby and I had absolutely no clue what I was doing. I suggest starting one and coming up with a game plan, a vision of what you want. Having a vision of what you want for your blog is a force that will allow you to focus on your content, your goals, and your audience! I will say it is not a fast process; I always tell people who want to start a blog to be patient. It won’t happen overnight and it will be a lot of trial-and-error of figuring out what works and what doesn’t, but that’s the fun in it! I am going to be starting a blogging series, so if you have any questions regarding blogging, please comment or email me emily@lifewithemilyblog.com and I will be sure to include them!
